blankON THE COVER — “Rising To The Top! — 18
In the fall of 2019 CBC Canada announced that Chris Ensing was the new anchor of “CBC Windsor News at 6” and shortly after, Bell Media chose Windsor native and popular local music jock, Dan MacDonald, as host of the weekday morning radio program, “The Dan MacDonald Show” on AM800 CKLW. These two young men are on now on top of Windsor’s media scene. Biz X’s Joe McParland — author of our column, “Have A Cup Of Joe With Joe” — knew interviewing them both was a great story idea and he asked the Publisher who agreed with a resounding “YES, go for it”!

6 Editorial Viewpoint: Relocation Of The Glengarry Housing Project Weighed The City of Windsor has sought Expressions of Interest on the properties surrounding Windsor Arena and Windsor Water World, which has triggered questions from columnist Alan Halberstadt about the possible relocation of the hopelessly outdated Glengarry public housing project. City Council has kept any such plans under wraps, although Councillor Kieran McKenzie (see photo courtesy of Kieran McKenzie) has made it clear he would not support any mass relocation of inhabitants of public housing.
