Very proud to share this

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:

905 Round-Up: Sewage Leaks, HATS in Hamilton and Greenbelt Spin The 905er Podcast

It turns out that the city of Hamilton continues to have problems with sewage.  This time it appears that for 26 years raw sewage has been emptying out into Hamilton Harbour.  The good news in this situation is that it also appears that Hamilton City Council is not covering it up and working to act proactively on the issue.  A sign of things to come? We shall see. A few weeks ago we talked with now Councillor Ted McMeekin about the Hamilton Alliance for Tiny Shelters or HATS.  For sometime they were looking for permanent site for the shelters, and it appears they are one step closer to it.  A site on Barton St is where they are currently housed. Will it last? Lastly, Bill 23 has passed at Queen's Park.  Critics have been pointing out the costs that will be downloaded onto the municipalities of the 905 on top of the loss of greenbelt land.  However, the government is immediately going into spin mode to convince Ontarians that this will save them money.  Spoiler: It won't. This episode of The 905er is brought to you by our sponsor: South River Brewing.  Listen to this episode to see how you can save money on your next order by visiting the link below: South River Brewing It takes money and time to create two podcasts a week.
