It’s the start of Year 5 on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. You’re welcome. To mark the occasion, as we usually do at the new year, we’re going to look back at the old one. Yes, it’s time again for our annual awards show, a celebration and a commemoration of the best of the best, and the best of the worst.
This Thursday, January 3 at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
Worst Politician. Oh man, there are so many to choose from… Yes, it was a long, hard year with so many people in power making all the absolute worse decisions possible, and that goes for politicians on both sides of the border. With so many potentials to choose from, just who exactly was the worst enough to be called the worst?
Good News Story of the Year. Was there good news this year? Of course there was, it was just rather difficult to find. Since we’re dedicated semi-professionals we scoured the newspapers, websites, and podcasts of the world to find a reason to get happy, and lo and behold there was an eye in the maelstrom after all!
Dumpster Fire of the Year. Like the Worst Politician, this is the category that keeps on giving, and we aren’t even counting the actual fires! With each new day there was some new scandal, or some new concern. The systems meant to protect us didn’t working, and the work that needs to be done to set up new systems just isn’t coming together. So what’s the fieriest dumpster fire of them all?
Best Politician. For every politician who’s terrible, they have an equal and an opposite. Yes, there are some people out there still trying to do right by their constituents, and we have looked everywhere to find them. No matter your political stripes, you have to respect the ones that able to get past the politics, and deliver on their promises, and we’re going to talk about two of them!
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
