Happy Tuesday! We have a really exciting show lined up this week. Just after the 8:00AM BBC World News we’ll be joined by Mayor Larry O’Brien to discuss his re-election campaign. At 8:30, we’ll speak with Alex de Vries about his list of Ottawa’s worst bike problems.
We’ll also have a Twilight Zone prize pack to give away in the second hour, so be sure to keep listening!
We’ll also touch on some of the following:
The government’s maybe-funding of professional sports facilities continues down the crazy path.
It was bound to happen: Japan challenges Ontario’s green energy programs at the WTO.
Super Mario turns 25!
Jim Watson proposes a transparency plan for council.
BC will get to vote on the HST! And unlike STV, a simple majority will be good enough.
Happy Tuesday! I hope that everyone had a chance to get out to Bluesfest, and equally hope that people are not too burned out from the musical marathon. Worry not: Adam and I are an excellent cure for live music overload. As always, we air on CKCUfm, 93.1 in Ottawa, www.ckcufm.com for everyone else.
At 7:30, we’ll be joined by Alex Hill of CAPP Ottawa to talk about the fallout from the G20 protests. In the second hour, we’ll have at least one special guest with us to promote the banter.
We’ll also talk about some of the following.
