Who’s Becoming an Open Source the Next Couple of Weeks?

The next month is going to be very busy for special guests here on Open Sources Guelph! We’ve got a federal politician, a provincial politician, and a Guelph city councillor along a panel of local all-stars for our annual tribute to all things Green.

April 13 – Rick Peterson. Till a few months ago he was just the President of Peterson Capital in Vancouver, but now Rick Peterson is making his play to be the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, and the leader of the Official Opposition. We’ll talk to Peterson about his background, his policy ideas, why he thinks the party needs a political outsider to lead it, and why he’s the only businessman in the race that seems to be taking it seriously.

April 20 – Michael Harris. Continuing our quest to get to know our neighbouring politicians, we’re pleased to welcome MPP for Kitchener-Conestoga Michael Harris to the show. Harris is currently the PC Transportation and Research and Innovation Critic, so you can imagine there’s a lot to discuss, and Harris is a regular face when criticizing the provincial government and Kathleen Wynn. So we’ll talk about what the PCs plan on doing differently, and what Patrick Brown might have in store as the Premier in waiting.

April 27 – Earth Day Special. It will be five days late, but Open Sources will be having it’s annual Earth Day special as per usual, with a full hour of environmental talk, which should be very interesting this year given that President Trump has surrendered the war on Climate Change. So we’ll focus on local solutions! The hour will feature two round tables of local environmental groups including Plastic Free Guelph and Transition Guelph. Stay tuned for the full roster.

May 4 – Dan Gibson. The Ward 1 Councillor will be making an encore appearance on our show to talk about the latest developments from Guelph’s original Ward. From his motion earlier this year to promote commercial development along York Rd. to his latest motion to push the City of Guelph to net zero emissions, Gibson’s been very busy this year so far, and we’re sure there’ll be lots more to talk about before the fourth…

If you have any questions for our guests, or have any ideas for future topics and guests, please feel free to get in touch with us.
