Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 7: Adding a round-about at Line 26 between Stratford and St. Marys/London/401 W

Exits from this roundabout to Line 26 are now closed. This first phase of construction should not significantly affect through traffic on Hwy 7; however, from July 2nd until October, the roundabout will be closed to all traffic. Detours will be signposted, and drivers should allow extra time to follow them.

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Ideas: Marx and After

The Disrupters
In partnership with CBC Radio’s Ideas, a five-part series that explores the roots of modern identity through the ideas of five people who flipped the table of conventional thought. 

Marx and After
What’s the value of a unit of work, and who decides? What’s the ultimate legitimacy around owning a piece of land? Marx threw out questions that seemed to invite answers that would make the world a more equitable place, but that little experiment didn’t work out too well. Is there another way that Marx’s ideas might work in practice? Democratic Socialism says yes.

Panellists:
Sheila Copps, former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada
Arne Kislenko, Associate Professor of History, Ryerson University
Rick Salutin, Toronto Star current affairs columnist
