Welcome back to Inside the Village, where all news is local—and no topic is off-limits.
On this week’s episode of Village Media’s new podcast, we tackle the province’s affordable housing crisis with Tim Hudak, the former leader of Ontario’s Progressive Conservative Party, and now CEO of the Ontario Real Estate Association. (We definitely had to ask him about this insane listing in Guelph.)
The latest episode also features a city councillor from Cambridge who has a big idea to boost voter turnout on election days: free rides to the ballot box for everyone.
And you’ll hear all about a gutsy decision made by the City of Greater Sudbury, which has shut down commenting on its Facebook page. The haters will just have to hate somewhere else.
Launched earlier this month, Inside the Village provides a weekly window into some the best local journalism, big and small, from across our chain of Ontario newsrooms. If you prefer the audio version, it’s available wherever you find your favourite podcasts.
