Episode 4: Pandemic Planning Part 2 – The Trustees Perspective

The 905er

About the Episode

This week on the 905er podcast we are delighted to be joined by two people intimately involved in planning for children returning to school in September. Andréa Grenbenc, chair of Halton District School Board and a trustee in Burlington, and Marvin Duarte, vice-chair of Halton Catholic District School Board, trustee for Milton, join us an answer questions on the preparations being made for a safe return, the financial challenges being faced, the experience with online learning, and much more.

Later in the episode Roland and Joel follow up on Burlington’s planned discussion of ranked ballots, and Roland gets hot under the collar about the province’s plan to build a new 400 series highway through the greenbelt and farmland of York, Peel and Halton regions, contrary to independent advice received just three years ago, as well as modern thinking on induced demand. Expect more episodes on this subject before we’re done.
