Podcast with Marcel Latouche on Jeromy Farkas and Mike Nickel’s impacts on their city councils

Its always fun and interesting to sit down with author Marcel Latouche of The Institute for Public Sector Accountability to speak on municipal issues.

The race for Mayor formally began in Calgary with Jeromy Farkas officially entering the race while Jeromy’s maverick counterpart in Edmonton, Mike Nickel fought off efforts of his council colleagues to censor him. We discussed how the municipal governments of both Edmonton and Calgary are both irreparably broken and how the 2021 municipal elections may lead to the sea-change which both of the city councils desperately need to see.

Farkas and Nickel are both daring to go against the grain and it is going to make for a very hard fought election year in Alberta.
