TVO’s flagship current affairs program, The Agenda with Steve Paikin, returns to London on Sunday, February 26 as part of the TVO On The Road tour. Members of the public can register for free tickets to be part of the audience for the recording of two episodes. The first episode focuses on the lingering effects of the 2008 recession. While London has experienced job growth, it’s been slower to bounce back than other areas of Ontario - that has some wondering if the London area is being left behind. The second episode examines social challenges, including racism and poverty, and what London is doing to break down those barriers.
The episode will be recorded at the Donald J. Smith School of Building Technology, Woodworking Shop on the London Campus of Fanshawe College.
