Ontario Municipal Elections — Just a Nibble (The Not Quite Daily Beaver)


[Recording Date: October 24, 2022]


Hey Kits!


It's another episode of Just a Nibble (The Not Quite Daily Beaver): For those moments when you still want your Beaver-Grizzly goodness, but just don't have time for a whole bite.


Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning at 7 Eastern, we livestream a quick take on the news, in addition to our usual formats,


We had extra time today, so you get two scoops!


It's municipal elections day in Ontario, so we talk about a few races to watch, but particularly about one of Ontario Premier Doug Ford Edsel's many abuses of power to make city council less democratic with his legislation allowing for strong mayors (it comes into effect with the start of the new council term); we discuss Mr. Grizzly's head-to-head with empathy-free Convoy leader Tom Marazzo during an appearance on The Dean Blundell Show; we touch upon some international democracy -- or lack thereof -- happenings, and; call out some dishonesty from Franco Terrazzano of the Canadian (alleged) Taxpayers' Federation (who is definitely trying to do the Skippy thing... right down to the look, voice, and mannerisms).


Our nibble is the purrr-fect thing for busy Kits who are on-the-go.
