Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 28, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll be ping-ponging between matters at home and abroad. In Canada, the leader of the NDP will finally be back in the Commons after winning one of three contentious by-elections, and in Ontario, controversies continue to pile up for the provincial government. Meanwhile, in Vietnam, two world leaders are meeting to accomplish something, while “something” seems to be exactly what we got from the Vatican’s meeting on sex abuse last week. Yay! More good news!! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 21, 2019

We’re back! After taking a week off to help CFRU mark Black History Month, Open Sources Guelph returns with more stories than you can shake a stick at. So let’s start shaking! We will metaphorically march on Queen’s Park, as everyone seems to be doing, since everyone seems to have a beef with the provincial government these days. Next, we’ll go to the Federal government, where they’re certainly not immune from scandal. Speaking of immunity, there’s not much of it anymore thanks to Anti-vaxxers. And speaking of contagions, we’ll say goodbye to a dream called “HQ2” because of creeping socialism. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 7, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the state of the union is deeply cynical with a hint of despair. We’ll talk about Trump’s latest attempt to pivot to presidential, and we’ll talk about the Ford government’s latest pivot away from transparency. After the break, we’ll consider if a serial killer can teach us something about the present tolerance for the queer community, and if a city councillor not taking the bus can tell us something about our transit system. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 31, 2019

This week, Open Sources Guelph is going to get complicated. In Venezuela, there are some tough decisions about how to handle the tense political situation there. The House of Commons is dealing with some of the same old, same old, but police forces in the country are concerned about a new threat. And finally, we ask the question of our time: do we really need billionaires?  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 24, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get an education. Here in Ontario, we learn that you don’t get something for nothing when it comes to post-secondary education in the Ford era. In Canada, we learn that relations with China are complicated, at least so far as their telecom executives are concerned. South of the border, we learn that sometimes a picture is telling a different story than you might have thought. And in the U.K., we learn that… No, we already knew it was a gong show.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 17, 2019

On Open Sources Guelph this week, we’ll continue our ongoing coverage of the slow decline of western civilization. In the U.K., Brexit comes to a full boil, and in the U.S., the Russian investigation goes back on the front burner as the President, somehow, looks dirtier. Here in Canada there’s not much more to be proud of. Justin Trudeau shuffled his cabinet, but is he really just shuffling deck chairs on a sinking ship, even while his Reconciliation dreams become a new nightmare? Oh, the pain! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 10, 2019

Welcome back to this crazy year already in progress, and an all-new year of Open Sources Guelph! Unfortunately, the news didn’t take a break, so there’s a lot of stuff to catch up on, like the government shutdown south of the border. In Canada, we’ll talk about whether carbon tax and electoral reform have a future here, and in our last segment this week, Scotty talks to a kindred spirit. Continue reading
