This week, hear Part 2 of the annual Terra Informa Fun Drive Live show! The live show features interviews from Canadians of all walks of life and focuses on municipal government and its power to affect a community. With Alberta-wide elections approaching quickly on October 21 this is an excellent time to get educated about the changes that can or can’t be made by your municipal government. In part 2, we spoke to an Edmonton group trying to promote progressive candidates, and to an Edmonton engineering student who’s seen the extremes of environmental issues municipalities try to deal with.
