CBC's "At Issue: City Politics"

Peter, Alan, Andrew, and Chantal discuss the recent Calgary mayoral election, Naheed Nenshi's win and the role that tech savviness may have played in getting a progressive elected in a conservative area.

I can't disagree with Andrew Coyne more on this one. Thank goodness partisanship and party politics don't play the same kind of role in municipal politics here as they do in the U.S..

In general, the "non-partisan" gloss on municipal politics has worked to the advantage of the right wing. Here in Regina, we have right wing councillors elected in wards which would never elect a right winger if they knew.
