Speaking Municipally: It's not quite Chili enough to treat people like human Beans

Speaking Municipally: It's not quite Chili enough to treat people like human Beans

In Episode 117 of our weekly podcast on municipal politics, hosts Troy Pavlek and Mack Male discussed the recent video that showed Edmonton police officers ordering people sheltering in the Central Station LRT to leave without any assistance. The wind chill made it feel below -30 C that night.

"Our extreme weather response is meant to keep people safe and warm, which is why it was frustrating to see a video showing folks being removed from an LRT station, without being directed to City supports and partner agencies who could be of help," tweeted Mayor Don Iveson following the incident.
