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.

Councillor Burcher

In the second hour of CFRU 93.3fm’s Royal City Rag on July 10 we were pleased to welcome Ward 5 Councillor Lise Burcher to the show.

As part of our pre-election coverage, Royal City Rag has invited all of the current city council, including Mayor Karen Farbridge, 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, talk about the successes of the current term as well as their hopes for the future.

Our wide ranging conversation covered among other topics; growth and sustainability, the Community Energy Initiative, Water Supply Masterplan, the controversial WC Woods condo development and the importance of good process and community input.

It should give you a clear indication of the complexity of being a city councillor in a face-paced and rapidly changing world.

A fascinating discussion. You won’t want to miss it.

CFRU93.3fm’s Royal City Rag will be heading out on the municipal beat once again on July 10.

It’s hard to believe that the current city council’s four year term is nearing an end. It seems no time at all since the 2006 municipal election, and yet, here we are gearing up for another one.

As part of our pre-election coverage, Royal City Rag has invited all of the current city council, including Mayor Karen Farbridge to join us on the show for an end of term report. This will be an opportunity for council to discuss the main issues they see facing the city, talk about the successes of the current term as well as their hopes for the future. It will also give us a chance to ask some questions of them.

This Saturday morning we are pleased to welcome Ward 5 Councillor Lise Burcher to the show during the second hour (9-10 a.m.). Should be a fascinating discussion. You won’t want to miss it.

In the first hour of the show (8-9 a.m.), Judy Martin from Sierra Club Canada will be joining us again with an update on some important environmental issues affecting the city.

Sounds like a great show. As always, we’ll wrap it all up with some great music.

Royal City Rag, Saturdays 8-10 a.m. on CFRU93.3fm in Guelph. Remember if you don’t catch Royal City Rag live, you can always pick it up later that day via the CFRU archive or here, on the blog, a day or so later.
