AROUND THE BLOCK

September 11, 2009 — An age cap reversed

Posted in Uncategorized by nicktaylorvaisey on October 1, 2009

Featured interviews:

Today on the show, we spoke with Ted Horton about the efforts that Ottawa’s student community made to lobby city councillors to remove the age limit that was slapped on student bus passes on July 1. Only a couple of days after council ended up both reconsidering anf then repealing the measure on Sept. 9 (with unanimous support), Ted came on the show and talked about how it all went down.

We also talked to Fiona Sant, the organizer of the inaugural Sandy Hill community garage sale. Although she refused to be as brash and arrogant as I would have hoped, we talk about how the garage sale will measure up against its formidable opponent in the Glebe.
