Beasley Charter Interview on 820 AM CHAM

Tune into The Forum on 820 AM CHAM tomorrow (Saturday) at 11AM to hear me speak about the Beasley Neighbourhood Charter (repeat on Oldies 1150 AM Sunday at 7AM). Here's the synopsis for the episode:

What’s wrong with the suburbs? Often depicted as lonely and boring, the suburbs are also seen as a retreat from the loud, busy, and dense urban areas. Hamilton’s leaders want our City to be the best place to raise a child; so, where would you choose to live? With Mahesh Butani and Judy Marsales, we’ll consider the future of Hamilton’s suburbs. Then, one urban community is taking charge of its destiny. We’ll discuss the Beasley Neighbourhood’s community charter. But first, the City strikes again: how a garden for cancer couldn’t take root in Hamilton’s soils.
