Ward Zero – S3E2: Calgary’s housing issue, the provincial election… and Sports!

After a bit of a break due to scheduling, the election, and more of life’s beautiful creations, the Ward Zero team is back to talk about Calgary’s top civic issues.

That means one thing: An extended episode!

In this episode, Esmahan Razavi – back from steering campaign victories for the Alberta NDP in two high-profile Calgary ridings – leads the show with Jeremy Zhao and LWC editor Darren Krause to talk about the hot-button housing issue.

They also dig into the provincial election results and what it means for Calgary.

They tie things up with a look at the pre-election arena decision, but it gets into a conversation about city building and how we may need to shift our perception of the arena deal and where the City of Calgary has failed in communicating to citizens where the public benefit lies.

Plus a hot take on Bill C-18, Google, and paying for news… and your round-up of quick hits.

Enjoy the return of the Ward Zero team!
