"J" is for Jurisdiction

Municipal governments are comprised of local elected officials and encompass a range of administrative bodies, including cities, towns, villages, and municipal districts.

Join us in the Political Trenches: Local Government at Work as we examine the most pressing issues confronting municipal governments throughout Canada. I along with my co-hostIan McCormack, President of Strategic Step Inc., will provide insights and perspectives on the challenges and opportunities that confront local governments as they strive to serve their communities.

Today we bring you the letter ‘J’ which stands for Jurisdictions. Later in the episode, we will speak with Reeve Paul McLauchlin, President of the Rural Municipalities of Alberta.

But first, we follow up on the recent federal budget, where the federal government finalized the downloading of the retroactive pay for RCMP Members to Municipalities. Then we will discuss the Province of BC hiring Municipal Advisors to assist local governments, and lastly we will head to Atlantic Canada and talk about inflation causing a headache for municipalities when it comes to potholes.
