Open Sources (Ep. #321) Show Notes for April 8, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we come down off the post-Easter chocolate high with a very busy news week. We’ve got some mixed messages here in Ontario about the latest COVID restrictions, and there’s controversy in Ottawa with allegations of gross (and gross) misconduct. From the U.S., we’ve got a pretty big trial happening across the lakes right now, and there’s this guy from Florida… Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #321) Show Notes for April 8, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #320) Show Notes for April 1, 2021

The original April Fools are back this week with another episode of Open Sources Guelph. We would love to spend the hour making jokes and pulling pranks, but there’s some serious stuff to talk about. We will look at the ever changing pandemic response provincially, and the growing trend of Anti-Asian hate that’s even affected our community. After the break, it’s back to the patio with another Guelph city councillor. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #320) Show Notes for April 1, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #319) Show Notes for March 25, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re having Canada Day three months early. Sort of. Our topics this week are all Canada-centric, from the provincial where we just got a new Ontario Budget just six months after the last one, to the national where the Official Opposition might have failed to make a case that anything has changed. After that, we’ve got the update on the Two Michaels and some museum chat(?). Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #319) Show Notes for March 25, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #318) Show Notes for March 18, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we skip over the luck of the Irish and get right to the anger of the Scots, and there’s a lot to be angry about. From a COVID conspiracy shindig in our town to a mega-media merger that’s unlikely to help anyone with access or pricing, we will make our outrage known. After that, we will turn to Guelph MP Lloyd Longfield, who will hopefully help bring the temperature down. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #318) Show Notes for March 18, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #317) Show Notes for March 11, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re in a mood to celebrate, or we would be if the special occasion in question was something other than the start of a global pandemic. On this paper anniversary of the COVID-19 lockdown, we will talk about the politics of vaccines, and the racial politics of being royal. And in terms of local politics, we will talk about the surprisingly bitter politics of patios.

Open Sources (Ep. #316) Show Notes for March 4, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we going to go far north if only in spirit because we can’t presently leave our protective bunkers. Dr. Pierre Fogal, a certified climate change hero, will take us around 80 degrees north this week as we talk about his work and his research at the Arctic Circle. Before that, we will stick closer to home with Alberta politics, and then go far afield with the intelligence report about the high-profile murder of a journalist. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #316) Show Notes for March 4, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #315) Show Notes for February 25, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will wrap up the month with a multifaceted discussion that will take us from the present, to the future, and back to the past. We will look at the contentious debate about a certain Conservative motion this week, and we will look at the provincial conservatives move to… protect the environment? In the back half, we’re talking again about Facebook’s world takeover, and we’ll remember a notable bit of Canadian political history.
