Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 21, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to try and not make the children cry, but it will be hard. We’ll discuss the latest from the humanitarian crisis south of the border, which is stressful enough to make you want to take a puff of the wacky tobaccy. That will have to wait a few more months here in Canada, but if there’s one thing you won’t have to wait for, it’s the new Ontario government undoing the work of the last one. All that, plus some depressing discussion about the dangers of the big city streets, are coming up on this week’s show. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 14, 2018

It’s back to normal this week on Open Sources Guelph! While the election (one election) is over and done with, there’s still a lot to dissect after Thursday’s vote, and we will dissect all those details on multiple levels be they local, regional and provincial. And since the election has forced us to take a break from U.S. stuff for a while, we’ll check back in with our orange friend south of the border, who has now started mixing it up with Justin Trudeau, and just before he tried to see if he can make a new friend in North Korea.

All the excitement, and policy discussions, and campaigning, and ad hominem attacks, and debate avoidance, and exhaustion, comes down to this.

From CFRU election headquarters, where our magic wall is using dry erase markers on an actual wall, we are ready to bring you all action from the epic conclusion of the 2018 provincial campaign!  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 31, 2018

This is the end… of our campaign coverage for the 2018 Ontario Provincial Election, and Open Sources Guelph is wrapping up with a profile of the last two candidates in the race (that will talk to us). Before we get to the ‘L’ parties though (Liberal and Libertarian), we’ll stop and do a little chit chat about how this election’s been, how the parties have fared in these last few weeks of campaigning, and whether or not Guelph is really about to make history of a certain colour. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

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. Continue reading
