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.

You’ve probably heard of the term “Ward of the State”. It refers to a situation where the court takes responsibility for the well-being of an individual.

I’d like to turn those words around and redefine them at the same time.

Think of it as: State of the Ward. In this case, I’d like it to refer to a situation where the Councillor discusses the well-being of their constituents.

I’d like to suggest that we get our Councillors to formally present their own State of the Ward every year throughout the month of January about what’s happened over the previous year in the Ward, including plans, progress and remaining challenges.

I’m not looking to add more work to the Councillor’s job. What I am looking for is some focus. And some sharing. And some learning.
