This month our guest is Dave Meslin, author of TEARDOWN: Rebuilding Democracy from the Ground Up. Meslin is an activist, artist, and community organizer who inspires better engagement between governments and citizens. He formed the Toronto Public Space Committee that in 2005 was chosen as the "Best Activist Group" by both EYE Weekly and NOW magazines. TPSC published the first issue of Spacing Magazine, an award-winning urban affairs publication. Meslin appears as an expert on political engagement on national media. His TED talk about apathy has more than 1.5 million views and his 90-second video clip from the 2016 federal election coverage, using colourful stacks of Lego bricks to explain how our voting system fails us, has over 2.5 million views on Facebook alone.
We will be asking Meslin for his thoughts on how to make climate the issue for our municipal election in October. You won't want to miss this episode!
