Open Sources (Ep. #353) Show Notes for November 25, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re looking cross country, and mostly about environmental stuff. We will head back to British Columbia where talk about Truth and Reconciliation has hit the proverbial fan again, and speaking of things hitting the fan, WE is back in the news too. For the back half of the show, we welcome back our local MPP to talk about the Ontario government’s very bad week on the environment file.

Open Sources (Ep. #352) Show Notes for November 18, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to talk about the disturbing state of politics. On the environment, the world’s major climate action conference had only minor action. South of the border, it looks likely that a kid who shot people will get off Scott free while a rightwing troublemaker looks like he might be finally paying the price. Before all that though, look, we have a picture of bipartisan co-operation in 2021! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #352) Show Notes for November 18, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #351) Show Notes for November 11, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got some very big things to talk about. Obviously, we always have big things to talk about, but this week, we take a trip into realms more ethereal. Is there a real shift underway giving more power to the workers? Is there really a pandemic of wokeness in the discourse right now? Looking locally though, we’re going to talk about something more tangible, the budget. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #351) Show Notes for November 11, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #350) Show Notes for November 4, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we think globally and act locally. We will talk about that gathering of world leaders in Scotland trying to solve climate change, or at least that’s what they say, and closer to home, the Canadian government is still taking Indigenous people to court. In terms of acting locally, we will talk to the head of Guelph Campaign School about running for something next year. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #350) Show Notes for November 4, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #349) Show Notes for October 28, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the times they are a-changin’. We have a new cabinet for the Federal government, and there were actually a few surprises. We will also talk about how things never really seem to change at the Provincial level, at least on battling COVID. In the back half of the show, we will talk to a Guelph city councillor, who will be looking over a new kind of City of Guelph budget next month. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #349) Show Notes for October 28, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #348) Show Notes for October 21, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got a potpourri. “Potpourri” is the category on Jeopardy! where they’ve got a lot of great answers that don’t fit into other categories, so this week’s show is a potpourri as we discuss the Alberta municipal elections, and the murder of another British Member of Parliament. In the back half of the show, we’re going to interview a Kitchener man who made history in last month’s Federal election. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #348) Show Notes for October 21, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #347) Show Notes for October 14, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we deal again with some heavy issues without any easy answers. In the medical field, we have hospital laying people off who won’t get vaccinated, and in Afghanistan we have people in need but they live under the yoke of some dangerous authoritarians. Meanwhile, here in Guelph, we have a heritage building that was a fire trap. So many issues, and only one hour to cover them. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #347) Show Notes for October 14, 2021”
