Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 25, 2017

A couple of big, ongoing political storylines are coming to a head on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. Our favourite wildly unqualified President of the United States is been on his first field trip and making new friends (glad that he and the Pope finally buried the hatchet as seen above), and this weekend, the cliffhanger on the leadership of a major Canadian political party will finally be answered. In other news, we’ll welcome an old friend to the show and get the lowdown on the latest goings on with our local government.  Continue reading

This week’s Open Sources Guelph will not begin until we’re shown to our villa. But seriously, unlike a certain luxury music festival organized by the man that gave us “Thug Lovin'”, or a certain American administration that we could name, this week’s show will run like a Swiss watch.
