Open Sources (Ep. #387) Show Notes for July 28, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re thinking about summer vacation.* Before we take a couple of weeks off though, we’ve got a few news items to discuss and an interview to do. In the first half of the show, we will catch up with the battle for Ukraine, and the battle against conspiracy believers right here at home. In the second half, a discussion about healthcare issues with someone who’s in the business.

This Thursday, July 28, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

Raising Ukraine. It’s been a while since we talked about it, but the Russian war in Ukraine is still going, and it’s now been going on for nearly six months now. This week, the European Union has tried again to reduce their dependence on Russian oil, and while there was a new agreement to allow grain shipments from the region again, Russia bombed areas around the ports in Odesa and Mykolaiv. We will talk about the latest.

The Lich of It. Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich is once again free on bail even though she violated the conditions when she was free on bail the first time. Her fellow Freedomer Pat King is also out on bail now, finally free from jail after five straight months behind bars. On Sunday, a Freedom Convoy live-streamer draped an American flag on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Sorry, we’re not done with the Convoy yet…

For Better or Nurse. You may have heard about staffing issues in Ontario’s hospitals. You may have also seen the line-up of ambulances up and down Delhi Street waiting to offload patients at the hospital. But do you know how the hospital’s nursing staff is feeling being overworked in these tough times? This week, Ontario Nurses Association elected president Cathryn Hoy will join us to talk about the pressures on nurses and the changes they need.

*Programming Note: Open Sources Guelph will return with new episodes on Thursday August 18.

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