This week on Open Sources Guelph, contrarian opinions are welcome, and they always will be. Wish we could say that was true in Russia, which is doing everything it can to convince its people that they are not in an aggressive war against Ukraine. We have to talk about that again, and we will also talk about the race to be Canada’s next Federal Conservative leader, plus, a city councillor stops by for another chat.
This Thursday, March 17, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
“No War.” We’re now three weeks into the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and things are not improving. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a desperate plea for a no-fly zone to the Canadian Parliament on Tuesday, while journalists covering the war have been killed, and the scuttlebutt now says that Vladimir Putin is giving his soldiers permission to commit crimes. Is there really no end in sight for this disastrous war?
Pierre’s Routine. Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown announced his bid to lead the Conservative Party of Canada last weekend, which officially makes this Conservative leadership race bigger than the last one. Still, with Brown, Jean Charest, Leslyn Lewis and Roman Baber all in the race, it still looks like it’s Pierre Poilievre’s to lose, as reflected in Brown’s first political attack on Monday, but does he or anyone else have a chance?
Allt-ered States. Guelph City Council has returned to (hybrid) in-person meetings, and one of the people that was actually there in-person was Ward 3 Councillor Phil Allt. This week, Allt goes virtual again to talk with us about the latest doings at Guelph City Hall, the fallout of the the council compensation debate, and whether or not certain City of Guelph capital projects are being put on pause again due to inflation.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
