Lanrick Bennett Jr.

Every once in a while Gregg and I sit down for a chat about Toronto – The city we love…well, the city we believe can be better.

Our guest this week loves Toronto. Alot. So much so that he and his son took the TTC to all 100 public libraries in this city. And they lived to talk about it. He’s a former Toronto City Council candidate. And I’m sure not for the last time.

Please Welcome! to the show, Lanrick Bennett Jr.
