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.

Mark Richardson joins us to talk about his experience challenging the City of Hamilton about their decision to ignore the recommendations of the consultants they hired to redefine the 15 Ward boundaries to create a more balanced distribution of Wards and population.

Problem is, when Watson & Associates presented their findings and their recommendations, City Council decided to redraw the Ward boundaries themselves - literally. Crayons came out and maps were marked, the results of which were voted on by Council.

Mark Richardson felt a need to challenge that decision, so he invested his time and his own money to challenge Council’s decision at the Ontario Municipal Board. We talk in detail with Mark about what motivated him to take this action, as well as what happened during his hearing.
