This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to really get into the election issues, and for a change it’s not going to involve punditry. This week, we’re going to start our candidate interviews with two back-to-back contenders in the form of Communist Party candidate Juanita Burnett, and then we’re going to talk about other controversies with the election.
This Thursday, September 19, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
A Matter of Work. The first candidate we’re interviewing in this election needs no introduction because this is not her first time as a candidate, or as a candidate being interview on Open Sources. Juanita Burnett is running for the Communist Party for the third time, but in her first time as a Federal candidate, and we’ll talk to her campaign and making workers and labour a priority in 2019.
What a Week. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau really stepped in it this week, or we should say, he stepped in it 20 or 30 years ago. The brown face, and then black face, controversy hit the stolid campaign trail like a tonne of bricks, and made international news in the progress. So can Trudeau mount a comeback and save his re-election hopes, and what about the deeper racial implications at the hear of the controversy?
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
