This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s all election all the time! As we enter the last few weeks of the Ontario Provincial Election, we’re really going to have to step up our game in getting candidates on the air, so we have two back-to-back interviews. In one corner, we’ve got the returning champion in green trunks, and in the other corner, we’ve got a young challenger wearing orange.
This Thursday, May 19, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
Still Like Mike? That’s the question that Guelphites will be asked on June 2. In 2018, Guelph sent the first Green MPP to Queen’s Park with over 46 per cent of the vote, and though Mike Schreiner spent four years as a “caucus of one” at the legislature, it’s hard to say that he hasn’t been effective on the local and provincial stage. Schreiner will join us to make a case for a re-election, and why he’s not done trying to turn Ontario Green.
Parr and Away. If Andrea Horwath is the Premier-in-waiting, then she may be waiting for the election of people like James Parr. The youngest person in the local race, Parr is running for the New Democrats on a slate of issues important to millennials like him: climate change, housing and mental health. Parr will join us to talk about why he thinks an NDP is the only vote for real change in Ontario, and why the youths will save us.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
