Matt and Jeremy welcome Todd Litman and Travis Paterson to the show for a discussion of the upcoming Victoria city council by-election and a look at the issues most pressing to Victoria voters. Todd is a consultant and researcher who runs Cities for Everyone and the Victoria Transport Policy Institute and Travis is a local journalist with the Oak Bay News. The guests discuss the candidates and their positions on key issues, and dive deep on affordable housing, homelessness, the pandemic, police funding, and the perceived shortcomings of Victoria's political culture. The panel notes that former hot-button issues -- including bike lanes and the Crystal Pool -- seem to have fallen by the wayside.
