Mayor Walter Mulkewich

This week, Burlington lost an elder statesman of local politics.

Former Mayor Walter Mulkewich passed away this week.  His legacy in Burlington and Hamilton’s civic as well as political life will be missed by many.  If you were involved in local politics in Burlington, there wouldn’t be any doubt that in some circle or another Walter Mulkewich would be a figure.  And always for the better.  Roland and Joel take time to remember the legacy of Burlington’s former mayor and how he was truly a rare breed in politics.  Willing to put aside ideology and rhetoric in favour of compromise and finding a way to make the city a better place. 

After the break then, Roland and Joel take a review of the Ontario government’s decision to start drastically rolling back COVID-19 rules.  What will this mean going forward, and what does it say to the millions of Ontarians who sacrificed and followed through on the restrictions, only to have them suddenly end under the guise of having to live with COVID-19?
