The 905 Round-Up: Mayoral Rumours and Hamilton Social Media Hijinx

June 9, 2022

As one Ontario election ends, it appears that immediately we look at the upcoming municipal election in the fall.

More specifically the rumours surrounding former Ontario NDP Leader, Andrea Horwath.  For a little while now, the rumour mill has been circulating that Ms. Horwath is possibly looking to throw her hat in the ring for Hamilton Mayor this fall.  What are her chances of winning?  Should she run?  More importantly, should the people of Hamilton reward another politician shopping around for elected offices?

After the break, we look at social media shenanigans on the part of Larry DiIanni, who has no problem identifying male councillors by name and yet can't seem to remember the names of Maureen Wilson and Narinder Nann.  Should we take such disrespect at face value as a slip of the fingers on Twitter?  Or should we call out sexist behaviour as we see it?

Lastly, yet another update on the ongoing saga at Burlington City Hall.  Councillor Shawna Stolte seems to be getting what she asked for.  The city is reviewing their procedures for in-camera sessions.  So why the need to drag her name through the mud in the first place?

Joel and Roland dive into all of this on this episode of the Round-Up!
