As Scotty Hertz continues his search for King Solomon’s mine or whatever, the retconning of Open Sources Guelph this week continues with its transformation into a hardcore news show without any of that working class hero nonsense. So what are we doing this week? We’ve got the singing city councillor, and Guelph’s most well-known pot activist! Okay, so it’s not going to be *super* serious, but we’re going to tackle serious issues, in a serious way, with some fine and affable local characters. In other words…
This Thursday, September 14, at 5 pm, Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
1) Sing James. So far as first meetings went, it was a long one this past Monday as the first planning meeting of the fall at city council went almost three hours to tackle just one item. Ward 2 Councillor James Gordon had to step away before the debate was over, but he’s got plenty of time to make himself heard on a lot of hot debates coming up, which includes this coming Monday’s first meeting on the City’s service reviews. Gordon is a fixture at the Labour Day Picnic, so surely we will have something to say about whether or not the City is going to privatize garbage, and we’ll also talk to Gordon about what he’s got on his agenda heading in to the busy fall session.
2) The Bong Song. Did you guys know that Canada is legalizing marijuana next year? It’s true, and as MPs who are part of a committee implementing legalization meet this week on Parliament Hill to hear testimony, Open Sources will hear its own testimony from Kornelis Klevering. Brother Kase has run for the Marijuana Party in the last several federal elections in Guelph, and he has some very strong opinions about the way the federal government has enacted its legalization agenda, and presumably where that agenda is heading. We’ll talk about the latest pot developments, and whether Jeffrey Shaver (pictured above) will ever get his bong bank.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
