Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 29, 2019

 

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we wind down the summer with a relaxing look at the schizophrenic diplomatic situation around the world. Seriously, the global political order is not coming apart at the seams, it just feels like it. Anyway, we’ll talk about that ball of zany that sums up the lost weekend at the France hosted G7, and we’ll look at the seriously explosive situation in Kashmir. Closer to home, we’ll look at the past politics of the Federal Conservative leader, and whether there’s a possibility that a more rational Republican might unseat the standard-bearer in 2020.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 22, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we finally have an election in progress to talk about, just not the one we were expecting.  Yup, the writ has been drawn up in Manitoba for a provincial election there, but before we get into those issues, we’ve got stuff to talk about right here in Ontario as our Premier tried to convince the cities he’s done so much too that he’s not such a bad guy. In the back half, we’ll talk about gun issues here and in America, and what it really means to be Antifa. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 15, 2019

We’re back! After a surprisingly brief two-week vacation, Open Sources Guelph is back on the air with an all-new episode, and we’re ready to hang with you through to this fall’s Federal Election and beyond. That will be our first topic on our first episode back as we look at the moves of the federal party leaders ahead of the writ. We’ll also talk about the mysterious end of a high-profile sexual predator, the seriousness of provincial separation (in the west end), and the latest from the tension-filled situation in Hong Kong.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 25, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re wondering if anyone’s going on summer vacation. In Ottawa, the news keeps coming even as we’re counting down to a fall election. In the United States, the special counsel is back in the news despite his best efforts. In the U.K. there’s a new sheriff in town, and he’s going to make people do what he wants on Brexit (apparently). And finally, not to disturb your calm, but the rent is pretty damn expensive here in Canada, and we have the data to prove it now.  Continue reading

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to get election ready! The Federal Election is just a few weeks away, so we’ll check on the status of some of the major parties, plus talk in-depth about one party’s very particular move that made headlines locally and nationally. And on top of all that, we’ll welcome another member of Guelph’s City Council to the studio for another substantive chat about local issues. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 11, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re getting into the weeds. It’s summer, after all, and our politicians aren’t making a lot of news like they should, so let’s get into the issues. For instance, since when did protesting pipelines make you a target for our own spies? Why is everyone so angry about a movie? Why isn’t everyone more angry about the treatment of children in U.S. government custody? And what if most of us are wrong about our own thoughts on immigration here in Canada? Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 4, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, everyone loves a parade. This could be a reference to the Fourth of July sideshow that Trump is putting on today, but it could just as easily be a reference to his parade of embarrassments and scandals in the last week alone. Along with that, we’ll talk about the protests in Hong Kong, the politics of cartooning, and a Supreme Court case that should have a positive effect on victims of rape seeking justice in Canada.
