Event description
Join John Matheson for breakfast and a look tensions between two levels of government - municipal and provincial - and what to do about it.

About this Event

Joni Mitchell’s classic song, Both Sides Now, told of different perspectives on relationships, love, illusion and reality.

Who knew it applied so well to provincial-municipal relations?

Over the past 25 years, John Matheson has looked at provincial-municipal “love” from both sides, advising premiers, ministers and literally hundreds of mayors.

He will share his thoughts on this dynamic relationship and how it is evolving.

  • An overview of the evolving relationship between the provincial government and municipalities.
  • Processes and procedures that have promise for improving the relationship and improving results for citizens.

This program will be of interest to local government officials in Ontario as well as provincial civil servants, both of whom are wrestling with arrangements to provide public-sector services and projects in which they both have a strong stake.
