Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 24, 2018

It’s a first this week on Open Sources Guelph! As the provincial election marches on, we will go into expanded edition mode in this episode with three big guests who are all running to be Guelph’s next MPP. The first is hoping for an Orange Crush to help launch her to Queen’s Park, the second is a man who’s struggled to find a good home for himself in terms of parties, and the third proudly states he’s the “none of the above” option.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 17, 2018

Open Sources Guelph is the only place where you’ll be able to hear long form interviews with each of the candidates running to represent Guelph in the 2018 Provincial Election, and it starts this week with two of the Guelphiest! First up is Juanita Burnett of that little party that could started in a Guelph farmhouse almost 100 years ago (the Communist Party). Second is a man also hoping to make history, and no stranger to the show, Mike Schreiner. The Green leader returns to make his case to be Guelph’s Member of Provincial Parliament. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 10, 2018

Enjoy our last burst of punditry for a while, because next week on Open Sources Guelph it’s going to be all about the candidates. Before all that though, we’re going to be talking about the Ontario election in a broader sense by catching up with the leaders, and then we will look west where the Alberta Conservatives are counting down to their own change election. Also, we’ll talk about the new anti-hate organization that’s arisen from the response to the Toronto Van attack and other incidents of extremism here in Canada, and we’ll finish off with something a little… mellow.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 3, 2018

It’s all a waiting game on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. That writ is going to drop any minute now and we’re going to be in full-blown provincial election mode, but until then we’re going to have to stay tuned and see what everyone else is up to while they’re waiting. Maybe they can look at issues of poverty. We’re certainly going to do that, and we’re going to talk about the future of the most famous face on Ontario’s public broadcaster. All that, plus a special guest in terms of a provincial party leader that’s looking for an upset. (And his initials are not M.S.) Continue reading

We roll out the red carpet on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, and on it is a declaration that this week we’re almost all about the Guelph stuff.

On top that, we’ll talk about the reasons why the ultra rich are terrible this week. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 12, 2018

This week’s Open Sources Guelph is all about the hard questions. Not that we’re known for the soft balls, of course, but take Syria for example, what are the options in dealing with this conflict that’s now been churning for more than seven years? Or pipelines, how do you balance the environmental concerns with the economic prospects, or can you? There’s also predatory payday loans, and the greatest enigma of all, the man called Douglas Ford Jr.? Continue reading
