It’s nearly a month till Election Day, which means there’s a lot of ground to cover in the next 30-some odd days. This week on Open Sources Guelph, you join our candidate interview series already in progress as we go into the field again to talk to those that seek the endorsement of the people so that they might become official city councillors.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we were all ready to hunker down and focus on our first batch of municipal election interviews, but no, Doug Ford had to go and break constitutional norms because he wasn’t going to be stopped by some un-elected judge! Or something. Anyway, we’ll talk about all this notwithstanding talk, and then we’ll get right into the interviews. Continue reading
It’s Back to School Week, and that means people are getting back to the normal routine of things. This week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph is no exception, so as we head into fall, it seems appropriate to reset the clock a little (so to speak). On today’s show we’re going to update you on four big issues that have had a lot of moving parts of the last couple of weeks. In the international, we’ve got the ongoing NAFTA negotiations. In the national, we’ve still got no Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. In the provincial, we’ve got more lawsuits for the PC government. And, in local, we’ve got a proposed suspension of bylaw enforcement. Continue reading
It’s the end of summer for us all, but it’s no where near the end of controversy here on Open Sources Guelph. As we prepare to dive deeply into the municipal election, we’ll take a quick peak at the provincial election next door. Meanwhile, south of the border, it seems like we’re reaching a climax on NAFTA renegotiations, all while the President swallows the bitter pill of decency. Speaking of decent, we’ll wrap up with discussion about the Catholic Church’s latest troubles. Continue reading
This week on Open Sources Guelph we go where the people are, and they are all over the place. Officials from cities across Ontario and the provincial government met in Ottawa for AMO, and we’ll talk about how that went. Also, the federal Conservatives are meeting in Halifax, and that’s just getting started. In the second half of the show, we’ll talk about the environment, matters of heatwaves and plastic taxes.
Open Sources Guelph is going Omarosa-free this week! There’s more than enough stuff in the world to be concerned about without a fight between a game show host and a game show contestant even if they are, paradoxically, the President of the United States and a former presidential advisor. Instead, we will look to the rising tide of racism and hate, and the friction between labour and management at Canada’s biggest summer fair. Oh, and we’ll have some guy named “Lloyd” on the show too.

This week on Open Sources Guelph we gaze into the terrifying future. Sort of. Yes, we look ahead to maybe having an NDP leader in the House of Commons again, and what the election might look like a year from now, but there’s also plenty here in the present to be worried about. In Portland, violence seems to be the name of the game as ideologies clash in the streets, and there’s plenty of ideological clashing online too between new enemies, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Government of Canada.
