This week on Open Sources Guelph, we start the final countdown to Election Day. In our last (but not least) batch of Ontario election issues, we will talk to the woman looking to turn her vast community health experience into political action as the next Liberal MPP for Guelph, and then we will talk to a workers’ rights advocate looking to shake up the system and make a case for real change at Queen’s Park.
This Thursday, May 26, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
Turning Back Red? The Liberal Party’s goal this election is to get back into government, or at least official party status, and candidates like Raechelle Devereaux is a big part of that plan. She’s been the CEO of Guelph Community Health Centre for years, and is well versed about life at the intersection of health and social justice, and she joins us this week to talk about turning that experience into political action.
Taylor Made. There’s been a lot of discussion about workers and the rights of workers this election, but the fight for injured workers was well underway long before COVID, and one of Guelph’s front line fighters is Paul Taylor. Running again for the None of the Above Party, Taylor will talk about how he’s been affected by Guelph’s housing crisis and why direct democracy is the answer to an improved Ontario government.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
