This week we speak with author Philip Slayton, whose new book Mayors Gone Bad, is in bookstores now. Slayton, a former Bay Street lawyer, examines the bad behaviour  — and in some cases outright criminality —€• so rampant in mayoral offices across the country (including Halifax).

We also speak with Emma Van Rooyen a Kings County councillor who resigned abruptly last week citing what she termed an old-boys’ network and personal vendettas.

Plus, the report on last year’s snow and ice removal debacle left Halifax City Council cold, though the frustration councillors feel toward CAO Richard Butts is heating up.
