Joel and Roland Ride the Road to Nowhere

The 905er

About the Episode

Expanding on our conversation with Sarah Buchanan of Environmental Defence earlier in the week, Joel and Roland ask why the Ontario government is so determined to build roads. What is the logic, who does it help, and does the revolution in working from home arising from COVID-19 promise a permanent change in commuting habits that a smart government might seize upon? Along the way we ask ‘when did Conservatives stop being a party the believed in efficiency?’ and ‘what would happen if political parties treated the public like adults who can understand complex concepts?’.
