Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 25, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we learn again that elections have consequences. Here in Canada, we’ll look at the consequences of two very big provincial elections at either end of the country, and here in Ontario we’ll again look at what happens when you elect a party with no costed platform. But hey, it could be worse. The head of your government might be an unindicted co-conspirator who may only not be in jail right now because he’s President of the United States! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 18, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to give ourselves a bit of a beak before the long weekend. Instead of our usual panorama of new and breaking news from the past week, we’re going to have a series of interviews on this edition of the show. We’ll hear from our own Member of Provincial Parliament, a man who wants to the Member of Parliament for a nearby riding, and a leader in organized labour for Ontario workers, and they all have something to say. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 11, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we look to the future. Not the type of future with jetpacks and stuff, but the more immediate future about the 2019 Federal Election. Specifically, are we doing enough to tackle the creeping alt-right, not to mention foreign influencers looking to peddle? Back in the present, we’ll look at the new Ontario government’s first budget, and the doings south of the border at the other southern border. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 4, 2019

It’s a new month, but it’s business as usual in news on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph. Most of that is thanks to Ottawa, and the never-ending scandal about that one Montreal engineering firm and the politicians trying to cover for it, but there is new news out there. In one small island in Canada, they may be flirting with an entirely new type of government, but will they seal the deal? So there’s that, and we’ll try and get some insight at the intersection of Federal and local with Guelph’s Member of Parliament. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 28, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph many of our ongoing stories lines come to a head, but it’s not exactly the end of the story. We’ll look at the questions that still linger even though the Mueller Report has been delivered. We’ll cover the beginning of the Alberta election, which might be the end of one brief dynasty. Abroad, we’ll look at the exit that didn’t happen, but still might, and then a candidate in Israel’s election seems to be depending on some of that foreign interference. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 21, 2019

Open Sources Guelph came on the air with a discussion of extremism back in 2015, and it’s been kind of a recurring theme ever since. This week, extremism hits New Zealand and we’ll talk about the implications, as well as the implications for Canada’s own growing hate movements. On the lighter side, we’ll also talk about the newly revealed Federal budget, and the latest follies from Queen’s Park. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 14, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we play catch-up, and man, there is a lot of news out there, so we have to take our hour this week and cover all points. We’re going to start in Ottawa where the SNC Lavalin affair has gone on simmer, but there are other controversies. Then it’s off to Ontario and Alberta to look at the provincial political situation. And the last stop, of course, is Washington D.C. where things got very litigious for the President’s former friends. Continue reading
