Charlie Smith, editor of the Georgia Straight, discusses last Saturday’s municipal in Vancouver and more, with Joseph Planta.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.
It’s the Monday after the election here in Vancouver, and joining me now to look at what happened is the Georgia Straight’s editor Charlie Smith. With the re-election of Gregor Robertson as mayor and a majority of his Vision Vancouver candidates on council, as well as majorities on parks and school boards, where do we go from here over the next three years? What happened to COPE, their allies in this election, who got shut out? Where’s the NPA? There’s been some thoughtful analysis on the vote on the Straight’s website over the weekend, www.straight.com. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Charlie Smith; Good morning, Mr. Smith.
