This week on Open Sources Guelph, we take a mid-spring break. Does that sound weird? Too bad, we’re doing! Maybe we’re heading to Ottawa to see the Storm in the final round of the OHL playoffs. Maybe we’re heading south to campaign for “Uncle” Joe Biden. Maybe we’re workshopping our puppet musical about the life of Nikola Tesla. In any event, we’re replaying our most recent interviews with the MP and MPP of the riding of Guelph.
This Thursday, May 2, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will (re) discuss:
Lloyd Stories. It’s probably a difficult time to be a backbench Liberal MP; you’re not really part of the SNC-Lavalin affair, but it’s what everybody wants to talk about. This week on our show, Guelph MP Lloyd Longfield finds himself in just such a position, but we find time to talk about other issues too like the implementation of the carbon tax and the recent loss of auto sector jobs. Plus, there’s an election coming, and we’ll talk to Longfield about what’s concerning him.
Panic Mike. Last week, the Ontario government delivered its first budget under Doug Ford and Finance Minister Vic Fedeli. While many were initially pleased that it didn’t seem like there were that many cuts, the days since have revealed that there was a lot unseen in the fine print. One of those people is Guelph MPP Mike Schreiner, who joins us this week for an in-depth discussion about the government’s budget priorities, the carbon tax court challenge, and how the Ford government might be running defense for their federal counterparts.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
