Description

What are the policy issues that matter leading into the 2018 Ontario municipal election? What goes into covering the city hall press beat? How has the media landscape changed in recent years, with the decline of traditional media and in the era of ‘fake news’? What have these changes meant for reporting on municipal affairs? How have journalists learned to adapt and stay relevant?

On October 2, IMFG and School of Cities hosted a panel discussion of journalists who looked at the important policy issues ahead of the October municipal election.
