Luke returns from his sojourn in Winnipeg and tells us how awesome it is. But as that city continues to grow, politicians are considering charging new growth fees to developers. Your hosts ponder what this might mean for Winnipeg’s awesomeness, and whether these kinds of fees help or hinder urbanization.
In segment two, things get loud as jet planes literally fly through the podcast studio and Matt talks about noise bylaws in cities. Do people have a right to peaceful solitude in our Metropolises, or should people just be quiet about noise?
Finally, Vass introduces the topic of whether cities in Canada should have their own minimum wage laws, prompting Matt to have a chilling flashback to his days working at a grocery store.
