In this episode of The 905 Round-Up, Joel and Roland take a look at Peel region. Specifically, the fact that while Mississauga is getting massive funding for a badly needed hospital. To the tune of $3 billion. While its neighbour to the north is getting nothing. This isn’t the first time Brampton has called for more attention to its health care system. And it isn’t the first time they’ve been ignored. Since the start of the pandemic calls from Brampton has fallen on deaf ears at Queen’s Park. What is behind this? Is it a feud between Premier Doug Ford and Mayor Patrick Brown with Brampton citizens caught in the crossfire?
Then we look at the Burlington Taxi controversy in you guessed it, …Burlington! More specifically the call by the Burlington Gazette to fire city clerk Kevin Ardoon. We examine why this is just looking for a scapegoat and the irresponsibility of calling for the sacking of a public official and tarnishing of his reputation, without a lot to back it.
Lastly, some good news in Halton with the proposed plan to construct badly needed social housing in Georgetown, Milton and Oakville.
