"Moreland" Council name change + Public Housing under Labor

Wednesday, 29 June 2022 - 9:00am to 10:00am

This week on City Limits, Kevin and Karina speak with Mark Riley, Mayor of the council formerly known as Moreland.

 He discusses the decision behind the name change, Jamaican slave plantation roots of the name 'Moreland', and the process by which the Council formally accepted and endorsed 3 name options offered by the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation.

The proposed names are: 

  • Wa-dam-buk 
    Meaning: 'Renew'
  • Merri-bek 
    Meaning: 'Rocky country'
  • Jerrang 
    Meaning: 'Leaf of tree' 

 Learn more about the new name here.

 

Later, Dr Kate Shaw comes on the program to discuss public housing issues under the recently elected Labor Government, gives a criticism of the idea of the so-called "classless" society in which a child of public housing can become Prime Minister, and more.

Wednesday 9:00am to 10:00am
Urban environment issues, analysing government services, both federal and state and local campaigns.
