The Graham Crawford Show

The Graham Crawford Show was created out of a belief that we need to talk about the issues and opportunities facing Hamilton in a way that generates debate and fosters understanding. The goal of show is to provide smart, progressive talk from regular panelists, subject matter experts, and personal observations. The show is posted weekly and always focuses on issues affecting you and the City of Hamilton. All of the people involved in The Graham Crawford Show do so because they believe that dialogue creates understanding. And the more we understand our city, the better we can all help it to realize its potential. All of the shows are recorded in downtown Hamilton in the studios of QED Media. Let’s talk Hamilton.

There are many different types of public engagement in Hamilton. Sometimes, public engagement is part of a legislated requirement related to certain kinds of public projects where residents must be consulted in order for projects to meet provincially legislated requirements. Other kinds of public engagement are driven by a goal to understand what residents would like to see happen. Sometimes that goal is real. Sometimes, it feels more like theatre.

On this edition of The Graham Crawford Show, our regular Civic Panel, Maureen Wilson, Peter Graefe and Ryan McGreal, discuss public engagement. What’s working well. What isn’t. And what we could be doing better.

    Enjoyed this episode. Informative and thought-provoking. One can never know enough about what works to effectively engage the public, but one theme comes through - be genuine.
