You probably know who all the new members of city council and the school board are, but do you know how it all unfolded on Election Night? Preserved for posterity, and for the edification of those who might have otherwise been busy on Monday night, we’re going to replay nearly two hours of non-stop political nerdiness as we counted all the votes as they rolled.
This week’s episode of the podcast was recorded live-to-air on Election Night this past Monday. Starting when the polls closed at 8 pm you will be able to listen as Scotty Hertz and I followed all the ups and downs of the polls in Guelph, took a look at some of the key races around Ontario, and threw in a generous number of trademark non-sequiturs that have become your favourite part of live election coverage on CFRU!
So, let’s flashback to Election Night, and remember how we got here on this week’s Guelph Politicast!
