Open Sources (Ep. #367) Show Notes for March 3, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s a lot of bad news. Internationally circumstances force us to go back to Ukraine where the war still rages and shows no sign of stopping. More locally, we go back to Nova Scotia to talk about the inquiry into one of Canada’s worst crimes, if not *the* worst crime. In more positive news, we will happily welcome another one of our local upcoming provincial election candidates to the show.

This Thursday, March 3, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

Putin His Place. The War in Ukraine is not going the way Vladimir Putin wanted it to as Ukraine has held up surprisingly well against the onslaught, and almost one week later, Russia had still not take the capital city. But while the west has been united in support, and in sanctions, it seems to have not deterred Putin from a destructive course that will, at the very least, see thousands of Ukrainians dead. So what happens next?

The Inquiry. Almost two years ago next month, a lone gunman raced around rural Nova Scotia on a 13-hour killing spree that resulted in 23 dead (including the shooter) and three others injuried. So what went wrong, and what failures in law enforcement led to the worst mass shooting in Canadian history? That’s exactly what an inquiry is now looking into, but are they going to find the answers everyone wants?

Peter Plan. If you listen to this show, then you probably know that there’s a provincial election in a couple of months. The candidates are getting ready to make their case that they’re Queen’s Park ready, and one of those people in Guelph is Progressive Conservative candidate Peter McSherry. We’ll talk to McSherry about why he’s running, what his issues are, and what he’s looking forward to out on the campaign trail.

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