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.

A special edition of the Cityist.

Civic Panel regular, Maureen Wilson, joins Graham to discuss the future of the Discovery Centre on our waterfront. City Council is considering selling this public building and the 8 acres on which it sits to a private developer. We think there are ways to re-imagine the building’s use and keep it in public hands. Join us for our discussion.

    Thank you. We need to keep this conversation alive. We need to pressure our city councillors to keep this space in the public domain.

    I was at Bayfront with grandchildren when we noticed this building that had just opened. The children were very excited exploring this exhibit. It was wonderful and I continued to take grandchildren there. However, there never seemed to be improvements gradually being added as would usually happen. Apparently, this was a project of Sheila Copps. I was very suspicious when all of a sudden the building was sold after a short time of being opened and a business venture started. Why was the Discovery Museum sold. The building had a gift shop and restaurant. I used to take 7 of my 11 grandchildren there. We would fish out the back area. It still bothers me that the Discovery Museum was closed down. Couldn't ever get any answers why. Bring it back. Keep it for the people of Hamilton.

    Just loved this exchange of ideas about the Discovery Centre. It can still be a space to discover.. Books, history, neighbourhood issues, find services, like doctors, pharmacists, day care yoga, dance classes, see a movie, .... Bringing children and families to the space here is building an audience, a market, an awareness for the waterfront beyond the neighbourhood. It appears to be a natural extension of things already in the area, a skating rink, a coffee shop, lovely walking spaces, fishing from the pier. Please keep us in the loop about this great Hamilton community asset. I will be watching too!!
