I shared a while back that I was working behind the scenes on developing a new media project to cover issues and local news pertaining to the 905 area code. Our initial launch date was July 1, however as you no doubt have noticed that date came and went.
Long story short our ambition was too big for what we would be able to do. So we stepped back and retooled our approach. And what we came up with was this:
Frank Domenic Returns to The 905er – The 905er Podcast
Now on Fountain.fm fountain.fm/the_905er987 Support us there and help keep the podcast going! We welcome back to the podcast Frank Domenic! Frank joins Roland and Joel to recap two previous episodes and look at where we stand now on their issues. Previously we had on Karen Brown, President of the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario to discuss violence in Ontario schools against teachers. Frank is a teacher himself and so his insight into the dynamic in the classroom was invaluable. We also talk about how the trend hasn't decreased but has seemingly become more and more pronounced in our school system. What can be done about it and where are we falling short. Then we follow up on the story we did with the Ontario Health Coalition Executive Director Natalie Mehra. The Ontario Healthcare Coalition is kicking off a referendum for Ontarians to weigh in on the status of healthcare in Ontario. As the Doug Ford government pursues more and more private options for health care, what are people's concerns and fears about the direction the province is going. For the first time, Ontarians will have a chance to directly weigh in on how they view their health care options in the province. How did this conversation get to this point, and are we doing the best to provide Ontarians with the best choices for healthcare? Frank joins us for a lively discussion. This Episode is brought to you by Graham Agnew of Dominion Lending https://grahamagnew.ca/ It takes money and time to this podcast. We love doing what we do, but please consider supporting us if you can so we can keep improving, and keep paying the bills. You can become a monthly or yearly patron on our website at 905er.ca. We didn't like sharing your generosity with that other 'patron' website, so we created our own patron system. Become a patron, get member benefits and our eternal gratitude, and know that you're not mainly funding some crummy web company in the US. Win win! Or, why not buy us a coffee? Nicholas Paul: sound editing. The Quadrafonics: fantastic opening and closing tunes! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
This is a start of a project that is going to grow and take shape into something we hope is influential and meaningful to public debate. We’re in the works to bring this to Apple Podcasts, Google, and Spotify. In the meantime subscribe via the link above and let us know what issues you think need to be talked about.
