On todays program: Chris attempts to chat about Le Tour, magnificent French scenery & sleep deprivation after only one coffee. Local news includes last weeks lively Walmer Street public meeting in Abbotford. This weeks guest is Sue Freeman from Guardians of the Flemington Road Gum, we chat about this iconic Lemon-scented gum's long, rich history in Parkville, proactive reasons why it must be retained, despite the CityLink Tulla Widening Project marking it for removal and why it shouldn't be removed for either "safety" concerns or a painted bicycle lane.  

Sue lets us know how to get involved with the Guardians 24-hour roster to protect the tree until a suitable solution is available and why planning issues must be more conducive towards community & local environmental concerns.

For additional upcoming events, see our public calendar.
