We're back at it again like clockwork for Episode 2 of the Peterborough Politics Podcast. This week we delved into the latest city council meeting, specifically about the deferral to add stronger language surrounding Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) to the community safety and well-being plan. We talked about delegations from Conservative MP Michelle Ferreri, former Mayor Diane Therrien, and former Councillor Stephen Wright. Next, we had some hot garbage takes about the new waste collection plan: clear bags, composting, and garbage pickup every other week. Lastly, we saved a little time for some drama we encountered around Drag Story Time. It was a busy week!
