Manage episode 347766419 series 3379258
Could there be a better time to listen to our communities on how they want their politicians to behave? Especially when we’ve seen so many examples of just how bad things can go if we don’t set the right expectations.
In this episode, we’re joined by Mayor Cheryl Christian, Regional Municipality of West St. Paul, offering an inside perspective on Manitoba's mandatory codes of conduct for municipal council members. And, we get some great insight from Mayor Christian about how the new rules (and required training) are playing out in practice. Plus, some tips on how to set boundaries for those who might try to weaponize code complaints for political gain.
