2022 municipal elections

Did you miss the fun of the live results show on Monday? You did? Well do we have a treat for you. Over three hours of talk and analysis as the election results came in from across the province. We know you’ll want to listen to every minute.

And, you know what, the results were a lot of fun in some cities. There was genuine excitement in three cities at least where the mayoral race was extremely close, and it was an evening that saw a significant amount of change in quite a few places, even if other cities didn’t see any change at all.Read More …

Kearns states that Parr was unwelcome at a campaign event because of Parr’s prior “disgusting use of language designed to incite hurt and embarrassment”. At the event, she claims he “shoved his phone in my face in front of my children, family, friends and supporters telling me to ‘call the cop’s’ …. Which we did.”Read More …

Empty stage

If a candidate skips debates, interviews, media opportunities, and, er, everything, why on earth should we vote for them?

And if Andrea Horwath and Bob Bratina are concentrating their fire on Keanin Loomis in Hamilton, what does that tell us about the Keanin Loomis campaign?Read More …

Regular guest Alan Kan joins us again to chat about the latest news from the municipal election trail. And leading the pack for ‘oh, good grief, really?’ moments in this election are the good cities of Brampton and Hamilton.

Does Zeeshan Hamid have what it takes to launch a serious challenge to Gord Krantz in Milton? It’s a battle between a computer scientist and an incumbent mayor who doesn’t have an email address. But it’s an Ontario municipal election, so the guy unreachable by modern technology is obviously the favourite right? Right. But Milton has a real choice to make at this election. Listen up.Read More …

Keanin Loomis

In the run up to the municipal election on October 24th we want to give our listeners the opportunity to hear directly from candidates in some of the most hotly contested and important races. We’re kicking off today with an interview with Keanin Loomis. Keanin certainly got out of the gate early, and has been up front with policy ideas since day one. Will that be enough to tip the balance towards him and away from names that may be more familiar?Read More …

Joel and Roland take a look away from the Ontario election beginning and focus on the municipal candidates declaring their candidacy for this falls election.  Why is there such ridiculousness around the public property not being used for campaigning?  It is publicly owned and are we not smart enough to know a campaign when we see it?

Rory Nisan, Maureen Wilson

Rory Nisan is city and regional councillor for Ward 3 in Burlington and Halton and Maureen Wilson is councillor for Ward 1 in Hamilton. Both of them join us today to give their perspective on why the municipal votes in Hamilton and Halton to repeal mask mandates were so one-sided, when the public seems far from united on the wisdom of abandoning masks.Read More …
