Episode 22: Suburban Disagreement

Forgive us as we catch up and post some episodes that were recorded nearly a month ago!

In our twenty-second episode we have a spirited conversation about the suburbs. After too many weeks of just agreeing on everything, we decided to pick a topic that would result in a little more back-and-forth!

With Graham defending the surburbs and myself (Mack)¬†questioning our city’s continued outward growth, we discuss lifestyle choices, the cost of building and maintaining City infrastructure, infill development, and much more.

Do residential neighbourhoods pay for themselves? Is revenue distributed equitably across the Capital Region? Why shouldn’t our children have the same housing choices as we did? How do bigger cities manage their sprawl? Will we ever have a regional government in Edmonton? These are just a few of the questions that come up in this episode.

Thanks for listening!
