Open Sources Show Notes for November 14, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get to say goodbye to one of the greatest Canadians who hasn’t been too great for a long time. Oh yes, we’re going to have our say about the Don Cherry controversy, and we’re going to dig back into the swamp for a little impeachment talk. At the bottom of the hour, we’re going to get a little more serious and talk about one of the most disturbing, ongoing crimes of our times with someone who’s lived it.

This Thursday, November 14, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

Cherry Bomb. Don Cherry is no stranger to stepping in it, but this time it cost him his long time gig on Hockey Night in Canada. His comments about “those people” enjoying “the land of milk and honey” while not acknowledging veterans by wearing a poppy was caught for all its subtext, although Cherry claims that he was not being a racist in talking about “those people.” Did cancel culture get this one right?

Open House. After weeks of closed door hearings, the Democratic-lead impeachment committees are finally holding open meetings for all the world to see. The question: does hearing all the gory details of Donald Trump’s attempted bribery of the Ukrainian government from the mouths of those that lived it going to persuade the die hard Trump base he’s corrupt?

Prey. The stunning, systematic abuse by Catholic priests on young boys and girls is one of the most horrifying crimes, perhaps only eclipsed by the concentrated effort by the Church to cover it all up. This week, we’ll be joined by Robert McCabe, a survivor who works with other survivors trying to recover from their abuse, and Matt Gallagher, the director of the new documentary Prey, which plays at the River Run Centre Saturday. They’ll talk about the movie, and the push to hold the Church accountable.

Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and at 5 pm on Thursday.
