Open Sources (Ep. #403) Show Notes for December 1, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we catch up with old friends. Dinner with friends has gotten the former U.S. President into trouble again, and being a little too quick with the proverbial hickory stick has made a lot of people in China mad at their president-for-life. Guess we’ll just have to make some new friends, and that’s what we do this week as we interview another one of Guelph’s new councillors.

This Thursday, December 1, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

Yeezy Does It. On the weekend, Donald Trump entertained some diner guests at his fake-White House/country club in Florida, rapper Kayne West and his new friend the white supremacist hate monger Nick Fuentes. Naturally, Trump claims to have no idea how West and Fuentes ended up having dinner with him, but how will this further escalate the growing anti-Semitic sentiment in the U.S. and North America?

The Zero Effect. A fire at a residential building in northwest China sparked a string of nation-wide protests not seen in the Xi Jinping era, and likely not seen since the Tiananmen Square uprising in 1989. Why? The “COVID Zero” policies that seem to have prevented firefighters from saving lives in the fire because after three years, the policy is as harsh as it ever was. How did China let their COVID fight go so wrong?

Saved By Michele. As we continue our formal introduction to the new Guelph city councillors, we come around to Ward 3 and it’s interesting to note that this ward replaced their outgoing female councillor with the one female candidate who was running in the ward? We will also Michele Richardson about those great expectations, the new realities of Bill 23 and what to expect at her first planning meeting next week.

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