City way or the highway? Richard Florida, professor at the University of Toronto
Politics as we know it was born in cities. It’s no wonder that cities, especially big ones, feel entitled to call the shots for other, sometimes far more impoverished and disadvantaged communities.

Was there something that big-city dwellers, the cosmopolitan elites, failed to grasp about the rest of their countries? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Richard Florida, professor at the University of Toronto and best-selling author.
