Wag the Doug
#46 Strong Mayors [COMMA] Building Homes
The province has got a housing crisis, and the only prescription is… more mayoral powers?? Allison and Jonathan probe the comically flimsy pretense under which Doug Ford has fundamentally, if casually, reshaped how Ontario’s two largest cities are governed. Because what doesn’t quite kill Toronto and Ottawa, apparently just makes their mayors stronger.
Clarification (September 22, 2022, at 8:48 p.m. EDT): Ottawa mayoral candidate and councillor Catherine McKenney uses “they/them” pronouns — not “she/her” pronouns, as used in this episode.
