The countdown is on to the municipal elections in October here in Ontario. Politics and policy remains an important part of creating a sustainably circular economy. That's why we've dedicated four episodes to featuring local municipal politicians, provincial candidates, leaders of political parties, and non-governmental organizations - people who are in the know and who influence policy and politics.
In today's episode, Andy is honoured to be joined by the Mayor of the city of Brantford, Ontario, Kevin Davis. A successful lawyer by trade for more than 35 years, Mayor Davis was elected the 50th Mayor of the City of Brantford on October 22, 2018. He's a passionate community activist committed to improving the quality of life for the residents of Brantford.
In this show, Andy and Mayor Davis discuss change and the importance of following through on changes that will make things better for people, no matter how much some may resist the change itself.
They look at some of the lessons that have been learned as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and where we go from here.
Mayor Davis also offers some thoughts on new initiatives and ideas for moving Brantford forward and addressing the climate crisis, as well as the inevitable challenges those will bring.
