Calgary’s municipal election is now behind us and the mayor and council are getting up to speed in their roles.

Podcast editor and host Sam Chipera spoke with Rachel Timmermans, SAMRU’s external vice president, and Duane Bratt, a Mount Royal University political science professor about the results and what they mean.

Bratt says that the new government has a whole, “host of challenges,” due to the change in seats on council and with a new mayor. 

However, Timmermans says that she looks forward to the new open minded council to support Calgarians and to hold a conversation on how best to improve the city.
