Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 29, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we download the data, which is a dangerous business these days. We will dedicate a segment to all the computer stuff going on and why it’s a danger to our privacy and our democracy, and then we will talk about the Canadian angle, and why the Federal Liberals seem to be doing nothing about it. On the back half, we talk about MPs taking action, and getting into some legal hot water over it, and we talk about whether or not high school juniors and seniors really are too young to vote.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 22, 2018

It’s another journey around the world on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph. Obviously, we start out in Ontario where Premier Kathleen Wynne tried to reset the clock, not to mention the agenda. Meanwhile, in Ottawa, the new NDP leader is dealing with his first big controversy, but will he have time to reset the clock before his next election? Speaking of elections, Putin won his, and Trump couldn’t be happier! And, to wrap up, we’ll talk about Canada putting a toe back into peacekeeping.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 15, 2018

It was a non-stop political news weekend that had nothing to do with the words “Donald Trump”, and now Open Sources Guelph is going to deal with what comes next. As well as what happened then. It’s an all Ontario, all hour this week as we look back at the high drama and high tension of the PC Leadership vote, and we look ahead to what Ontario might look like with Official Opposition leader Doug Ford. After that, we’ll talk to another leader, Green Party of Ontario leader Mike Schreiner about what you can do to make sure Mike has a chance to debate Ford (and Wynne, and Horwath) face-to-face.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 8, 2018

It’s another week of dramatic developments here on Open Sources Guelph where we know drama! For instance, we talk about the climactic chapter of a provincial leadership campaign, and if you thought things were sloppy there, then you haven’t heard the news about a certain separatist federal party. Back in Trumpland, that ship is sinking faster than usual, while in Hamilton, it looks like they had a G20 meeting without the meeting (if you know what we mean). Our donuts will never be the same.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 1, 2018

This week is a Canadian affair on Open Sources Guelph. There’s a lot of stuff going on at the federal level, not the least of which is the announcement of the budget, but there’s also still a lot to unpack, and not just luggage, from the PM’s recent Southeast Asian excursion. After that, we’ll talk about our own Conservative leader following in the example of the conservative leader south of the border, and why we’re mad at the major media providers this week.  Continue reading
