Focal Point on Roger’s Cable should be interesting Wednesday night….

Posted by auroracitizen on September 29, 2009

The Wednesday night “Focal Point” show on Rogers TV at 8:00 p.m.  is on Municipal Governance and the show will have 4 experts on municipal governance and municipal government.

Panel includes;

  • Award winning Municipal legal expert who is finishing a handbook for municipal governments (George Rust D’Eye)
  • Professor of political science who specializes in municipal government (Rob MacDermid)
  • Current Newmarket municipal councillor (Chris Emanuel)
  • Former Markham Mayor and MPP from the Region (Don Cousens)

Should be a worthwhile discussion on what leads to dysfunctional Councils and will touch on both Aurora and Vaughan situations.

FOOT NOTE: We understand that the show has been delayed to sometime in mid October.

Focal Point has decided to do a follow up on the infrastructure show where Gordon Landon suggested that the conservatives were not giving infrastructure to Markham and area because they elected a Liberal. This issue was brought up with the Prime Minister and Mr. Landon has subsequently been dropped from the Conservative ticket.

Focal Point is doing a follow up show on this topic given the national media coverage on this issue.

    DATE OF SHOW FEATURING OUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT HAS CHANGED

    The show on municipal governance has just been bumped to sometime in mid October.

    This is the same show where Gordon Landon recently claimed that the federal Conservatives were not giving infrastructure to Markham and area because they elected a Liberal. This issue was brought up with the Prime Minister and Mr. Landon has subsequently been dropped from the Conservative ticket.

    Focal Point, with host Nancy Coldham is doing a follow up show on the infrastructuire funding / pork belly politics topic given the national media coverage on this issue.
