Open Sources (Ep. #325) Show Notes for May 6, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re coming down from May Day, Star Wars Day, and Cinco de Mayo. The news week was almost as busy with provincial pandemic politics this week focused on the long-term care enigma, and the conundrum of anti-lockdown protestors. Federally, the sexual misconduct story in the military keeps getting bigger, and then there’s this other big education story in northern Ontario… Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #325) Show Notes for May 6, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #324) Show Notes for April 29, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we don’t have anything snappy to say. The pandemic is getting way out of control in India, and we desperately need a response. Meanwhile, in the United States, where the virus used to be out of control, the POTUS took a sort of victory lap. We’ll talk about that, and we’ll talk to a member of the provincial NDP caucus from a neighbouring riding about the Ontario angle. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #324) Show Notes for April 29, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #323) Show Notes for April 22, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we can’t handle all the drama at Queen’s Park. There are a lot of juicy stories coming out of the Ontario Legislature this week, but who can keep track of it all? So let’s go to Parliament Hill, where they delivered a budget after a 25-month hiatus, and then we’ll head stateside for a talk about social justice. After the break? Back to Ottawa, and a chat with China’s most hated Canadian! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #323) Show Notes for April 22, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #322) Show Notes for April 15, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we have really mastered the art of covering politics virtually. We start the show with the latest news from the third wave of the pandemic, and then pivot to the online-only policy conventions for two of the major Federal parties from last weekend. After that, we will be joined by another member of Guelph City Council thanks to the power of Zoom. Who is it? Let’s find out! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #322) Show Notes for April 15, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #321) Show Notes for April 8, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we come down off the post-Easter chocolate high with a very busy news week. We’ve got some mixed messages here in Ontario about the latest COVID restrictions, and there’s controversy in Ottawa with allegations of gross (and gross) misconduct. From the U.S., we’ve got a pretty big trial happening across the lakes right now, and there’s this guy from Florida… Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #321) Show Notes for April 8, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #320) Show Notes for April 1, 2021

The original April Fools are back this week with another episode of Open Sources Guelph. We would love to spend the hour making jokes and pulling pranks, but there’s some serious stuff to talk about. We will look at the ever changing pandemic response provincially, and the growing trend of Anti-Asian hate that’s even affected our community. After the break, it’s back to the patio with another Guelph city councillor. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #320) Show Notes for April 1, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #319) Show Notes for March 25, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re having Canada Day three months early. Sort of. Our topics this week are all Canada-centric, from the provincial where we just got a new Ontario Budget just six months after the last one, to the national where the Official Opposition might have failed to make a case that anything has changed. After that, we’ve got the update on the Two Michaels and some museum chat(?). Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #319) Show Notes for March 25, 2021”
