00:55 – The internet is abuzz from a Canadian report that there’s possibly a new international train service from Toronto through Detroit to Chicago coming.
We discuss the proposal plans; the hurdles as it’s still early; and what could be next.
Here’s background with the original report: https://www.iheartradio.ca/am800/news/dilkens-believes-amtrak-via-rail-link-is-an-exciting-opportunity-1.20532111
09:06 -Then, by listener request, we’re talking about the three current proposals for new Detroit City Council districts. Some districts, according to the U.S. Census, lost more than 15% of their population and every district suffered a loss; and the charter says every ten years there needs to be a redraw.
Here’s a link to the proposals – https://content.govdelivery.com/attachments/MIDETROIT/2023/11/07/file_attachments/2675727/Proposed%20Redistricting%20Detailed%20Boundary%20Maps.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0ThFAznIg0FOCGSKHL9I0A6XHmY6ys2F-_uTxhC6NDi2NhtCDDZAyHSzU
