The 905 Round-Up: Covid Deja Vu, Lawn Sign Loopholes and More Pride for HCDSB

January 13, 2022
 
 

Roland and Joel are back at it!

Our first episode of 2022, has our intrepid hosts looking down the barrel of another lockdown and shutting of schools to mark the start of the year.  At this point it's clear our provincial government in Ontario is winging this pandemic from wave to wave, with parents, students and the economy considered collateral damage.  What are we all to do going forward with Premier Ford at the helm?

Then Roland looks at the city of Hamilton adjusting their rules surrounding lawn signs during elections.  It ends up they took what probably should've been a pretty simple and clear clarification of the rules, and ended up making them thicker than mud.  Why the confusion? Is it political in motivation, or something far more mundane?

Lastly, Joel brings up the fact that the Halton Catholic District School Board is going to give raising the Pride flag in June another kick at the can.  The last time this was brought up, the entire process degenerated into a mess of bigotry and division.  Is that the sign of things to come? Or has the school board finally learned its lesson and will stand on the right side of history finally?  Time will tell...
