This week we speak with author Philip Slayton, whose new book Mayors Gone Bad, is in bookstores now. Slayton, a former Bay Street lawyer, examines the bad behaviour
― and in some cases outright criminality ― so rampant in mayoral offices across the country (including Halifax).
We also speak with Emma Van Rooyen a Kings County councillor who resigned abruptly last week citing what she termed an old-boys' network and personal vendettas.
Plus, the report on last year's snow removal debacle left Halifax City Council cold, though the frustration councillors feel toward CAO Richard Butts is heating up.
