Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 31, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we laboured to make our pre-Labour show Trump-free, but the man can’t let a week go by without blowing the doors off another political norm, and last Friday he broke about 12 even as a hurricane was bearing down on the U.S. We’ll have to discuss Trump’s latest move to undermine common decency, but we’ll also talk about the new faces (and positions) in the federal cabinet, and the new routes and schedules for Guelph Transit with the man who runs that service.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 24, 2017

This seems about right. If there’s one image to sum up the Trump presidency, let it be a picture of the man himself staring at the eclipsed sun despite literally hundreds of thousands of warnings to do the exact opposite. As for the show, this week on Open Sources Guelph we’ll talk about Trump’s not-new war policy, refugee concerns from the moderate to the alt-right in Quebec, and we’ll welcome to the show, for the first time, another Liberal Member of Parliament.  Continue reading

We will dedicate some overtime to that subject this week, and then we will talk about why it’s hard out there to be Conservative in Ontario right now, and what an east coast newspaper’s going to do now that a very long-term strike is over.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 10, 2017

This may be a shortened work week, but the length of Open Sources Guelph stays exactly the same. This week, we’ll welcome back out local provincial representative to the show and talk to her about all the things going on at Queens Park, and the countdown to next year’s election. In news, we’ll look at another election, the one to find a new NDP leader, and we’ll talk about a new develop in Syria and ask, are there any good guys left there?  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 3, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going green. For the first half anyway. We’ll have an interview with a not-so-well known but now very influential Green Party politician, and no, it’s not Mike Schreiner. (He was on a few weeks ago.) Speaking of green though, we will dig into a contentious environmental and legal issue, and talk about why it’s so darn hard for our prime minister to stop having his picture taken… Continue reading
