Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 29, 2018

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 22, 2018

This Open Sources Guelph is going to be a dire one. We’re going to talk about Brexit, which is going about as well as everyone expected. We’re going to talk about sex abuse, which seemed to have been baked into the culture of a prestigious Toronto school. We’re going to talk about the lack of support for trans rights in the governing PC Party. And we’re going to talk about our country’s environmental failures. Hold on to your butts. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 15, 2018

This week, Open Sources Guelph is awash in galling behaviour. In the United States, the President decided to skip the opportunity to remember veterans so he could pout and rage tweet in his hotel room, and in Ontario’s capital building you still never know who might be a scandal waiting to happen. It’s a bummer to be sure, and one that’s compounded this week as we say goodbye to a regular guest as he retires from the political stage. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 8, 2018

After taking a couple of weeks off from election talk, we’re back at it this week on Open Sources Guelph! In fact, we’ve missed elections so much, we’re importing coverage.

Meanwhile, people in Calgary are having an election, but in this one you can’t ignore the issues because it’s a plebiscite! Back home, we will welcome to the show our first post-election interview with a new city councillor. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 1, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it might get ugly. We’re coming off a very bad week south of the border, and it only seems to promise to get worse if you-know-who has his say. Worse still, that style of politics seems to be spreading, so we’ll make a pit stop in Brazil before heading home where fighting action on climate change has become a way to bring the country together it seems. We’ll also play catch-up with what will hopefully be a more positive development in democracy. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 25, 2018

Finally, we’re getting back to normal on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph, and by “normal”, we mean in Trump adjusted terms. The big man will come up in a tertiary way on today’s show, but he will not be our focus. Instead, we’ll be looking at the fallout of the Municipal Election race here in Guelph and other places, the ongoing controversy over the apparent murder of a journalist in Turkey, the lack of controversy from Canada legalizing pot, and we’ll look ahead to the next election. (Naturally.) Continue reading
