Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 28, 2017

We’ve had a very busy revolving door this year on Open Sources Guelph. In 2017, we’ve had about 40 different people come through the studio or talk to us on the phone. We’ve hosted City Councillors, Members of Parliament, Members of Provincial Parliament, candidates for party leadership, party leaders, professors, and activists.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 7, 2017

There’s some big trouble brewing on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. No, no one on this show has broken the law, but someone that was once in the Trump administration sure did! How about the Trudeau government, anyone breaking the law there? Maybe not, but that doesn’t mean the opposition isn’t kicking up some kind of fuss. And finally, no laws were broken during the passing of the city budget this week, but some feelings were probably hurt.  Continue reading
