Current affairs radio that takes you beyond headlines
The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) is a quasi-judicial board responsible for hearing land use planning appeals. The last several years have seen this unelected body criticized for usurping the decisions of municipalities, being developer friendly and not being consciousness of community needs.
Young people today face many barriers to financial stability including high tuition fees, housing prices and limited child care spaces. At the same time, there is an aging population in Canada and across North America with many seniors exiting the workforce. The result has primarily been government policies, especially in health care, leading to large increases in spending for services for seniors. Does this represent intergenerational inequality? Are young people being left behind by a system that disproportionately supports seniors?
We take a look at mental health and corrections in Canada today. What needs to be done to improve mental health outcomes for people in contact with the criminal justice system? We examine different stages of the criminal justice system and community care, as well as their relationship to persons with mental illness.
Beyond the Headlines (BTH) is a one-hour current affairs talk radio show aimed at providing a greater understanding and thoughtful discussion of the various policy issues in our daily news headlines. BTH aims to take listeners beyond the immediacy of our daily news.
Our show airs Mondays from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00p.m. on CIUT 89.5 FM in Toronto.
Beyond the Headlines (BTH) is produced by a team of volunteers. We are young policy professionals, and we aim to make in-depth analysis of current policy issues more accessible to you.
BTH operates, records, and broadcasts out of CIUT 89.5 FM at the University of Toronto. CIUT 89.5 FM is Toronto’s preeminent, listener-supported, presenter of leading-edge music and spoken-word programming since 1966. CIUT reaches listeners from Barrie to Buffalo, Kitchener to Cobourg, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
BTH would not be possible without the support of CIUT and listeners like you. Please consider supporting our partners at CIUT 89.5 FM. This way we can keep taking public policy issues out of the hallways and on to the airwaves.
BTH is also generously supported by the School of Public Policy and Governance (SPPG) at the University of Toronto. SPPG aims to form a hub for policy discourse, bringing researchers, practitioners, and community members together in order to contribute to policy debates, development, and discussion across many areas of expertise, both nationally and internationally.
