Mario Canseco (@mario_canseco) is a pollster with the new company Research Co. His first poll looks at the popularity of several potential mayoral candidates. Ian, Matthew and Patrick talk with Mario about polling, his new company and the state of the race.
Shauna Sylvester has launched an independent bid for mayor of Vancouver but is she a Vision plant? Meanwhile on the left, COPE is reportedly urging UBC urban designer Patrick Condon to seek their nomination. And on the right, John Coupar seems to be sucking all the air out of the NPA nomination race. Finally, we revisit the ongoing remuneration row going on at the Metro Vancouver board and we look once again into our mailbag.
Ian, Patrick & Matthew look at the state of the Vancouver mayoral election, the Metro Vancouver board's decision to vote themselves a pension increase, more mayors who aren't running again and finish off by responding to the incredible feedback from episode 1!
A quick note: We'll be moving podcast hosts soon (so you won't hear the Anchor ad at the end). This should be seamless but bear with us in the meantime.
In the first full episode of Cambie Report, Ian Bushfield and Patrick Meehan are joined by Erin Reddekopp (https://twitter.com/reddekoppter) from The Tipsy Archives (https://twitter.com/Tipsyarchives) podcast to dive into the history of Vancouver politics, break down how municipal elections work in the city and look at the state of the race.
