The Lawyer’s Daily: Windsor Law Centre for Cities report examines impact of pandemic on municipal governance

(13 October 2020) The Lawyer’s Daily reports on the centre’s first report, States of Emergency: Decision-Making and Participatory Governance in Canadian Municipalities During COVID-19.

Director of the Windsor Law Centre for Cities, Dr. Anneke Smit tells The Lawyer’s Daily that the goal of the report on municipal governance during COVID was to ask “what have we learned from this experience?

How quick, how nimbly were they able to respond, and what are some best practices that might inform both municipal practice in the future and also perhaps legislative reform?”
