It’s Tuesday: Time to talk politics and yesterday’s new deal between the City of Toronto and the province is being called historic. Actually my favourite commentary was in a tweet from Councillor Mike Colle – it said that Mayor Olivia Chow and Premier Doug Ford should get the Nobel Peace Prize! The deal earmarks up to 9 B from the province and much of that money will come from Queens Parks’ agreement to take over both the Gardiner Expressway and the DVP. There’s also cash for housing, for shelters and the TTC. In exchange, the city has agreed to let Ford have his way on that controversial Spa development at Ontario Place. Was that a fair exchange?
Libby Znaimer is joined by Maureen Leshem who lives in Toronto and is the cousin of 23-year-old Romi Gonen–an Israeli who was last seen at the Nova Music festival on Oct. 7 and has disappeared.
Romi, who is originally from a community in northern Israel, was last heard from her parents during the rampage by Hamas terrorists that killed hundreds at the Nova music festival. Romi attended the festival. Her family including Maureen are now looking for answers and calling for her return home.
Libby Znaimer is joined by Dr. Elena Elimova, a gastrointestinal medical oncologist at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Today, Zoomer Radio along with The New Classical FM are hosting the Third Annual Radiothon in Support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. In addition to raising awareness about the good things happening at the foundation, Libby reflects on her own personal journey in which she recently beat a third bout of Cancer and sets an example to us all about what it means to be a survivor.
