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.

Over 6 months ago, I did a Cityist called The Benchmark Project. It was a simple proposal for the City of Hamilton to provide affordable opportunities for Hamiltonians to place a plaque on a city bench honouring a family member or someone else important to them. In that podcast, I included information about the City’s existing program where for between $1500 and $2500, you could purchase a bench from the City of Hamilton and they’d throw in a commemorative plaque.
In this podcast, I provide an update about my correspondence and communication with my Councillor, Jason Farr, and with City staff. It’s not a pretty picture.

    You continue to raise the bar on civic discourse. As I become more exposed to city management culture I am shocked by the unwillingness of those responsible for service delivery to step outside of the narrow box of limited expectations. The lack of care of community, job ownership or even to consider simple alternatives continue to remain endemic challenges in city bureaucracy. This issue is particularly dear to me as I could not afford 1,500$ for a celebration of my mother's life.

    Keep up the amazing and vital work in asking the city to do better!
