An Anti-Nationalist Mayor

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Yiannis Boutaris, the controversial and unorthodox mayor of Thessaloniki, Greece's second-largest city, made headlines earlier this year when he was beaten up by a group of right-wing nationalists. Boutaris is unafraid to speak his mind even if it makes him enemies or goes against the status quo. Boutaris has won the admiration of many for his attempts to turn his city's economic fortunes around and build its future. He joins The Agenda to discuss his life and work. He recently visited the 6 Degrees Toronto conference on citizenship and inclusion and dropped by The Agenda to discuss his life and work.
