Open Sources Show Notes for April 16, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to do the same thing we do every week, try and take over the world talk about COVID-19. It’s not going away anytime soon, and the pandemic news continues to unfold quickly, so we will once again try and fold it up in a tightly wound 25-minute package. In the second half of the show, we’re going talk to our Member of Parliament about the ongoing Federal response.

This Thursday, April 16, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

Long Term Scare. As we enter the second month of COVID-19 lockdown the primary concern turns to long-term care homes, where nearly half of all COVID-19 deaths in Canada have been suffered. Can we address the systemic ignorance with emergency measures? Meanwhile, south of the border, Donald Trump kicked off the post-Easter period with an off-the-rails press conference that started with propaganda, and ended with authoritarianism. We’ll talk about those developments, and many more…

Lloyd Again (Naturally). All eyes on are on the Federal government, from which a lot of the COVID-19 response has been directed. The pressure is on for the Trudeau government to not just deliver virus protections, but to help make sure there’s an economy to come back to once the quarantine is lifted. We’ll talk to Guelph MP Lloyd Longfield about all those issues, how the government is going to try and address the gaps for students and workers in the gig economy, and about the potential effects on Canadian agriculture.

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