Open Sources Show Notes for November 21, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re packed with special guests, one from the local scene, and one from the national scene. In local news, we’re going to talk about one of Guelph Ward 1 councillors who’s been in the middle of a whirlwind lately. Then, in national news, just a day after Justin Trudeau announced his new cabinet, we’ll talk to the newest member of another caucus who hopes to be a thorn in the side of those new members of cabinet.

This Thursday, November 21, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

Dan in Real Life. While this is the time of year where much of council’s attention is taken up with the budget, Ward 1 Councillor Dan Gibson has had an entirely different issue fill his agenda over the last couple of weeks. Gibson will join us to talk about the concerns in his area about the process of developing harm reduction housing, the council motion to look at the site at 106 Beaumont, and how he hopes council might compromise on the issue at this Monday’s meeting.

The Green Coast. The 2019 Federal Election had a lot of big hopes for the Green Party of Canada, but at the end of Election Night, only Fredericton’s Jenica Atwin had won the chance to join the Green caucus in Ottawa. This week, we’re joined by Atwin who will tell us about the growth of Green support across the east coast, how the party’s going to change with the retirement of leader Elizabeth May, and what her goals and ambitions are as the new session of the House begins.

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