Episode 26: The Edmonton Region

Apologies to anyone who missed our last episode in the feed – we incorrectly categorized it. All should be fixed now!

In our twenty-sixth episode, we discuss the growing interest in regional governance. We have the Capital Region Board of course, and Mayor Iveson has indicated he’d like to rename it to highlight the importance of Edmonton. While the organization has had success getting agreement on transit, and supporting funding for the downtown arena, there’s still a lot of room for improvement.

What can Edmontonians expect for regional governance in the future? Does the Capital Region Board have too many members? Is transit really the only thing we can agree on? What kind of impact will Bill 28, recently introduced by the provincial government, have on us? How will the proposed south annexation impact relationships? We discuss these questions and more.
