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.
We look at the latest stories from those two cities, asking whether Patrick Brown’s main challenger is much of an alternative, and whether what some assumed was a ‘slam dunk’ win for Andrea Horwath is being undone by, well, Andrea Horwath.
This is not going to be anybody’s election for the ages, unless something very unexpected happens on Thursday. W, as the the saying goes, TF? And talking of unbelievable, Councillor Terry Whitehead, Hamilton’s regular challenger in the crowded field of challengers for ’worst councillor in Ontario’, really went off on one last week, in a manner that rekindled concerns for his wellbeing. But in the current climate of political self-immolation, does being the living definition of a loose cannon actually harm Whitehead’s chances of re-election?
Following our interviews with the leaders of the Greens and Ontario Liberals in the last two weeks, we take a look today at the NDP’s platform for the election which gets properly underway on Thursday. The NDP are first out of the gate with their full platform, and we choose the things we think are good and not so good from the NDP’s program for government.
What did we learned from our explosive interview with Scott Wallace of Burlington Taxi. Where is the outrage from councillors towards the failure of staff to follow through on instructions?
A recent poll shows a big uphill battle for provincial Liberal leader, Steven Del Duca and the NDP’s Andrea Horwath. What do they need to turn things around in 2022?
