The 905 Round-Up - Bad Democracy and Civil Wars

November 18, 2021
 

Today Joel and Roland look over the Minister of Municipal Affairs finally moving the Urban Growth Centre.  Spoiler it's a gift that's actually not a gift.  The devil is in the details and it appears that Burlington is probably not getting what it actually wants.  The fact is the development in this province under this government progresses no matter what.

We then look at Hamilton City Council's decision to job interview for a new Ward 5 Councillor rather than ask the people of Ward 5 themselves whom they'd like to represent them on the council.  It's anti-democracy in action at Hamilton City Council. 

Lastly, we sneak in a chat about Erin O'Toole demonstrating leadership by kicking Senator Denise Batters from the Conservative Caucus and in the process seems to have kick-started a civil war in the party.
