This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get back into the swamp. We go back south of the border to talk again about the long corruptible coattails of Donald Trump, and we will also take some time to catch up with the latest from the Conservative leadership race here in Canada. For the second half of the show, we will say an official goodbye to another Friend of OSG who’s decided to retire from politics.
This Thursday, June 16, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
“It’s Bullsh*t.” After over a year of in-camera investigation, the January 6th Select Congressional Committee has started to release their findings, and the word “damning” doesn’t quite say it. Essentially, everyone told former U.S. President Donald Trump that his claims of election fraud were you-know-what for two months leading up to the insurrection. Now the big question: Will any of this matter to voters this fall?
Deep Blue, See? Summer is here, so that means a lot of travelling to community events and barbeques for the six people that want to be the next leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. The race still seems to be Pierre Poilievre’s to lose, even though he’s gotten dinged over his cryto-dreams this week, and Patrick Brown is started to wonder if he’s made a huge mistake (or the media is). We’ll have an update from the trail.
Theory of James. A couple of weeks ago, Ward 2 City Councillor James Gordon announced that he would not be seeking a third-term at Guelph City Hall. He’s going back to being a full time rockstar, but before he does, he’s going to spend a couple of minutes talking to us about his time on city council, the things he’s proud of, where he wishes he did a little better, and why he wants to foster new and different representation.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
