Carl Zehr
Long time mayor of the City of Kitchener, Carl Zehr, sits down with Rob to talk about the Economic Development Investment Fund's impact on the city's downtown and where Kitchener is headed now. “The centre of a city is so important. It’s the heart that makes a city tick. If you don’t have a strong core, the rest will start to deteriorate. In the 80s and 90s people would say ‘I never go downtown, why would I do that?' That’s the point they weren’t feeling pride in their city, It was clear something had to be done.” - Carl Zehr
