Coming up this week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll start our next round special guest appearances, and they will represent all levels of government for Guelph from the provincial to the federal and back down to the local. Got any pressing questions? We’ll tell you who you can address them to next.
This Thursday, April 21, will mark our Earth Day show, and to celebrate the occasion we will host Green Party of Ontario leader Mike Schreiner. Based in Guelph and Toronto, there will be a lot of ground to cover with Schreiner from the GPO’s stand on nuclear power and the privatization of Hydro One, to local issues like Guelph’s plans for sustainable energy, the Niska Rd. Bridge, and emissions from the Owens Corning plant. Schreiner will be our guest for the full hour.
The next week, April 28, we’ll move on to the Federal scene with Guelph MP Lloyd Longfield. There will be lots to talk about from First Nations relations, to the Federal Budget, to the sale of armored vehicles to the Saudi government, plus how all the latest news from Ottawa is affecting us here in Guelph. (We hear the prime minister came by recently.)
Then on May 3, we will welcome our next interviewee from city council, Ward 3’s Phil Allt. A lot’s been happening at city hall in recent weeks including the review of the Community Energy Initiative, some contentious development projects, and the beginning of a weekly breakfast meet-and-greet with Allt and his colleague Ward 2 Councillor James Gordon. There’s always so much to talk about when it comes to local politics, and so little time.
