This week on Open Sources Guelph we have a very good relationship with Russia. Just kidding! Unlike the U.S. President in a press conference, there will be no butt kissing of the Russian Republic, and it’s not so benevolent dictator here. Once we get these shocking developments on the international stage out of the way, we’re going all-Canadian with news from Ottawa, British Columbia, and Guelph.

Look up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a balloon shaped like the President of the United States as a baby, and it’s going to fly over London in honour of his visit to the United Kingdom! We’re going to try and stay grounded on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, but we’ll still be looking over matters provincially and globally on this edition of the show. We’ll check on the Throne Speech here in Ontario, consider our own border issues here in Canada, and then go international with the man who inspired the balloon, and the internal political strife of one of the places he’s visiting.

This week’s Open Sources Guelph is sandwiched by change, with violence and sadness in the middle. On the outside, we’ve got a new government in Ontario that’s been sworn in and been making changes, along with a new government in Mexico that’s hoping for the same. On the inside, we’ll look at another mass shooting event in America, this time against reporters, and those allegations against our feminist PM that just won’t go away. Continue reading
This week’s Open Sources Guelph takes us on a journey to a mysterious and forbidden land just down the 401: Toronto. One weekend had both reason for celebration and reason for concern, as Pride festivities were overshadowed by more news that seems to say that the city may be a little less safer than normal due to all the gun violence. Of course, Pride highlighted some concerns of its own, and that’s something else we’ll dig into this week. But that’s not the end of the excitement! Along with the news this week, we’ll welcome back to the show Guelph’s next Member of Provincial Parliament, who, as you might have heard, made some history. Continue reading
This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to try and not make the children cry, but it will be hard. We’ll discuss the latest from the humanitarian crisis south of the border, which is stressful enough to make you want to take a puff of the wacky tobaccy. That will have to wait a few more months here in Canada, but if there’s one thing you won’t have to wait for, it’s the new Ontario government undoing the work of the last one. All that, plus some depressing discussion about the dangers of the big city streets, are coming up on this week’s show. Continue reading
It’s back to normal this week on Open Sources Guelph! While the election (one election) is over and done with, there’s still a lot to dissect after Thursday’s vote, and we will dissect all those details on multiple levels be they local, regional and provincial. And since the election has forced us to take a break from U.S. stuff for a while, we’ll check back in with our orange friend south of the border, who has now started mixing it up with Justin Trudeau, and just before he tried to see if he can make a new friend in North Korea.

All the excitement, and policy discussions, and campaigning, and ad hominem attacks, and debate avoidance, and exhaustion, comes down to this. Forgoing our usually Thursday afternoon show, Open Sources Guelph is going live to air Thursday night for all the election results! From CFRU election headquarters, where our magic wall is using dry erase markers on an actual wall, we are ready to bring you all action from the epic conclusion of the 2018 provincial campaign!
