The Hamilton Today Podcast with Scott Thompson:

Scott has returned to Canada and he has some travel stories to share with you! After so much talking to people who went through Pearson about their horror stories, Scott speaks first-hand about how inefficiently Canadian airports are run and apparently it's a laughing stock abroad. Picking up the local news, Scott has a preview of the Fringe Festival in Hamilton with a former Come From Away cast member, and writer/star in a show at Fringe, Eliza-Jane Scott. The big news from yesterday was of course Andrea Horwath announcing her candidacy for Hamilton Mayor. Scott speaks with former Mayor Larry Di Ianni, PoliSci professor Peter Graefe, and rival candidate Keanin Loomis about this and more in the Hammer. The Pope has finally apologized for the Catholic Church’s involvement in Canada’s residential schooling system, and Scott speaks with Settler Scholar Liam Midzain-Gobin, and Native Studies Instructor Dr. Patti Doyle-Bedwell about how this may help the reconciliation process. Quinn Ohler, Global News Edmonton, also gives Scott the feeling on the ground as she reports from outside the Pope’s address. It is all coming up on the Hamilton Today Podcast.
