Today Roland and Joel discuss the recent report by the Hamilton Integrity Commissioner on Councillor Terry Whitehead’s conduct.  Spoiler alert … it’s not a favourable one.  Both our hosts discuss the antics that go on at City Hall and what ought to be done to hold bad municipal politicians to account.

And in keeping with the Hamilton theme, the folks at Stop Sprawl HamONT have shaken up the debate surrounding the Urban Boundary Expansion.  By using their know-how and hard work, they have identified all the vacant and used properties in downtown Hamilton which could be rezoned or developed into housing, workspaces or other uses.  Our hosts talk about how this has changed the argument drastically in this contentious debate.

Here is the article from The Spectator in question:
