Welcome to the Labour Day edition of Talkin’ ‘Bout Windsor. Tonight, Robert and Ian continue to look at the excessive costs involved with the proposed new Taj Ma City Hall in Windsor. As well, they toured the downtown and spoke with two business men who extolled the virtue of the core, but warned of problem areas. The hosts checked out the jazz scene in Windsor, the latest job fair, and the problems with Transit Windsor. All that plus In Memoriam.
