On this episode of The 905 Round-Up, we have a special guest. Alan Kan writes a municipal politics blog titled #munipoli Matters. He is from Mississauga and often writes about what is going on in Peel Region. We invited him on to the podcast to give us a different perspective on what has been happening at Mississauga City Council with Karen Ras resigning over allegations of bullying and intimidation on part of another councillor.
Then we look at Brampton City Council and its ongoing troubles with their CAO under charges of nepotism on part of Mayor Patrick Brown. What is going on and where is this going? Finally, Joel brings up the good news of Premier Doug Ford announcing a major investment in ArcelorMittal Dofasco to make their operations greener. But why now? Is it a deflection against criticism of the Ontario Government's handling of the Ottawa crisis and what has happened at the border to date?
We talk about it all in today's episode.
