Open Sources Show Notes for December 19, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we take one last kick at the breaking news can before the holiday break. We’ll tackle what’s going on in Canada as the Prime Minister makes the end-of-year media rounds, we’ll look at the latest from the quest to remove Trump from office, and we’ll talk to the youths about how they’re trying to help those that need the most help during the winter months.

This Thursday, December 19, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

The Parliamentary Holiday Special. The House of Commons hasn’t done much in the new session, but they have found new controversy with Jody Wilson-Raybould, even as it turns out that she was right about SNC Lavalin all along. Meanwhile, on the other side of the House, things seem to have calmed down for the Conservatives one week after Andrew Scheer’s resignation. We’ll break down the latest.

…And Then There Were Three. The House of Representatives in the United States voted to impeach Donald Trump, which is just the third time in American History a sitting President has been condemned to a senate trial to determine if he’s violated his Oath of Office and should be removed. It was a party line vote, but Trump handled the news with his characteristic grace and humility. So what comes next?

What About Your Friends? Winter has come, and people are understandably concerned about the people in our community that live out in the cold, and among them is a new group called Your Downtown Guelph Friends. The Friends will be taking part in the show today to talk about what they’ve learned from working with the people on Guelph’s streets, and what they think they need in terms of housing.

***Programming Note: For the next two weeks Open Sources Guelph will air the annual holiday shows with the Political Movies show on December 26, and the Year-End Awards show on January 2.

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