Councillor Ian Findlay

We were pleased to welcome Ward 2 councillor Ian Findlay to CFRU93.3fm‘s Royal City Rag on Saturday, September 14. Councillor Findlay. This interview was originally planned for August 28, but had to be rescheduled because of circumstances beyond our control.

As part of our pre-election coverage, we invited all of the current city council, including the Mayor, to join us on the show for an end of term report. An opportunity for council to discuss the main issues they see facing the city, this was the last in the series.

During a wide ranging discussion Ian touched on growth and development, the new composting plant, the community energy initiative, conserving our water vs. a pipeline to Lake Erie, the downtown entertainment taskforce, downtown pissoirs v. washrooms as well as the great Ward 2 blog.

It was a great conversation and well worth checking out.
