It’s a week of big returns on Open Sources Guelph! First of all, Scotty will be back on the show to talk about the issues of the day. As for those topics, we will revisit that contentious vote in Great Britain with the strange name, the political fallout from the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history still being felt 15 years later, and a certain MP that they used to call PM.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the general theme is dysfunction. In Quebec, some chaos has been created in the provincial legislature with the sudden resignation of a major party leader. In Ottawa, mystery was created as a suddenly unsullied senator returns to work still under a cloud of uncertainty. And here in Guelph, one of the persons mentioned in the kerfuffle last week at council will try to get back on track in doing the good work for the city. This week, we’ll do what we can to overcome internal strife and talk the issues. Continue reading
