GUELPH POLITICAST #153 – Guelph Stuff: Year in Review

Had enough of this autopsy of the year 2018 that every media outlet is doing? Hold on you your butts because Guelph Politico’s got one more: December’s edition of “Guelph Stuff.”

On this second edition of this new monthly “column” in the podcast, we talk about competing Top 5s. Guelph Politico contributor Eli Ridder offers his Top 5 news stories of the year, and we look at the Top 5 from Guelph Politico, which has already been posted. The criteria was simple: news stories about Guelph we think had the most impact this year.

By any metric, it was a very busy news year. We had two elections in 2018, a entirely new provincial government that shook up the province, social issues increasing in severity and shaking faith in the system, a rise in local crime including a summer streak of indecent acts, and on top it all was the usual friction over contentious issues and policy at city hall.

So whether you’re about to enjoy 30 or 40 minutes of reminiscing about all that happened in 2018, or whether this is going to add to your anxiousness about seeing this year done at midnight on Monday, let this podcast be your farewell and adieu to everything that made up this 18th year of the 21st century. At least everything Guelph-related in 2018!

So let’s review the year that was on this edition of the Guelph Politicast!
