CKMS News – 2021-02-01 – Waterloo Region Weekly Roundup

Host: Melissa Bowman

Last week’s episode of the Waterloo Region Weekly Round-up was left as a bit of a cliff-hanger of sorts as we looked at all of the meetings leading up to Regional Budget Day. This week’s episode dives into that budget meeting and examines where several items ended up, including the much discussed police budget.

This episode also digs into the Housing for All: Rally for Change event hosted by MPP Laura Mae Lindo on January 21st. Plus, I’ll have a couple of quick updates from local council meetings including Kitchener’s 2-hour discussion about windows and Waterloo’s transportation master plan.

This program is a part of the “Local Journalism Initiative” grant program and is funded by the Community Radio Fund of Canada, the Government of Canada, and the CKMS Newsroom.
