Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 18, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to get election ready! The Federal Election is just a few weeks away, so we’ll check on the status of some of the major parties, plus talk in-depth about one party’s very particular move that made headlines locally and nationally. And on top of all that, we’ll welcome another member of Guelph’s City Council to the studio for another substantive chat about local issues. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 11, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re getting into the weeds. It’s summer, after all, and our politicians aren’t making a lot of news like they should, so let’s get into the issues. For instance, since when did protesting pipelines make you a target for our own spies? Why is everyone so angry about a movie? Why isn’t everyone more angry about the treatment of children in U.S. government custody? And what if most of us are wrong about our own thoughts on immigration here in Canada? Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 4, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, everyone loves a parade. This could be a reference to the Fourth of July sideshow that Trump is putting on today, but it could just as easily be a reference to his parade of embarrassments and scandals in the last week alone. Along with that, we’ll talk about the protests in Hong Kong, the politics of cartooning, and a Supreme Court case that should have a positive effect on victims of rape seeking justice in Canada. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 27, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph is no jaunty burger flipping affair. Of course, we weren’t the ones demoted from being finance minister after just one budget, but it’s hard to believe that’s a cause for celebration. We’re going to cover the upheaval at Queen’s Park last week, and speaking of disasters, we’ll revisit the Trump White House again. In the back half of the show, we’ll look at the ongoing concerns of election security, and the potentially greater threat of nuclear power (or is it a threat?). Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 20, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we revisit a couple of our favourite people, one is a youthful, active, left-leaning Canadian politician in his late-40s, and the other is an inactive, inattentive, and far-right leaning American businessman turned politician in his mid-70s. Who are they? Well, they’re not one of the councillors from Guelph’s fourth ward, who will be our special guest in studio this week. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 13, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we will again tackle the pressing issues of the day, and maybe have a few laughs along the way. But probably not. We’re drowning in plastic, and then there’s the drastic changes made by the Ford government, which has decided to take the next five months off having been so productive. We’ll also have a visitor in the form of one of Guelph’s 12 city councillors. Hint? She’ll be doing the interview in her home ward. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 6, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to tackle head on a national tragedy. Even though it’s Indigenous History Month in June, a time for celebration, we’re going to do a deep dive into the end of the Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and the other issues our First Nations people are facing. Then, a humour break, as Donald Trump once again storms the diplomatic world. And finally, we’ll talk about how the world seems to be turning on alternative medicine. Continue reading
