Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Wards chats with Khaled Iwamura about housing, Brock University, Black History Month, and more.


The housing task force said municipal fees and processing times are slowing down housing builds…What are your thoughts?

What do you think is the solution for affordable housing?

What’s the plan for that Robert Bateman high school property with Brock University?

Are more post-secondary opportunities something that Burlington will continue to aggressively pursue?

When can we expect to see shovels in the ground at sites like 409 Brant or 2069 Lakeshore or 2082 James St.?

Following up on last week’s discussion about the future of the hydro lines at Burlington Beach. In Nov. 2020, you and Gary Carr wrote a joint letter to the Hydro One CEO asking about moving or burying the lines. Did you ever hear back? February 21 is the next milestone date in the province’s reopening plan. Do you think they should get rid of the vaccine QR code system?

You have a workshop of your preferred growth plan…what do you hope to get out of this?

It is Black History Month…is there any highlight events that you would like to chat about?
