Open Sources (Ep. #388) Show Notes for August 18, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back! After enjoying some bee-free time outdoors, we’re back in our respective bunkers and ready to get down to business as unusual. To wit, Ontario’s premier had some bee troubles to go with all the other troubles he’s bee’n facing lately, which are nothing compared to the troubles facing a certain Florida man. What else? How about a talk with a doctor *and* a politician?

This Thursday, August 18, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

Bee Positive. At least he could laugh about it. Yes, last Friday a bee flew into Premier Doug Ford’s mouth, but solving the challenges facing Ontario right now is a bit more difficult, especially when some of the government’s solutions get a less than warm reception when mentioned to Ontario’s mayors at the AMO conference this week. We’ll talk about the buzz around the provincial government. (Sorry.)

Mar-a-Law & Order. Last week, FBI agents went to a Florida resort, but they weren’t interested in a vacation. The search warrant executed on Mar-a-Logo, the permanent home of former U.S. President Donald Trump, was one of a number of legal developments that affected Trump and his associates in the last two weeks, so we will break down the latest news, and the concerning fallout from his followers.

Doctor Change. Before we went on break, we interviewed a nurse, so for our first show back we’re going to interview a doctor! Liberal MPP for Don Valley East, Dr. Adil Shamji will join us this week to talk about Ontario’s healthcare crisis while wearing his two hats, one as a politician and the other as an emergency physician and the medical director of 11 different homeless shelters in Toronto. He’ll talk about his experience, and what changes he thinks we need to make to improve our healthcare system.

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