Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 30, 2019

Summer is here, so tune into Open Sources Guelph this week while sitting out on the patio drinking a beer. That’s the vision that the Ontario government wants you to follow up on, or perhaps the only response to this week’s news is a good stiff drink. Anyway, we’ll be talking about the latest from the Ontario government, election moves from a pair of former Liberals, and then news from Europe on the future of Brexit, and the new parliament that the continent just elected.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 23, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to try and look past the usual suspects to get at some of the under reported stories in the news this week. Among them, we’ll look at an official investigation into money laundering, and a key turn of phrase that’s a giant step forward in dealing with out racist past. Speaking of racism, that’s still a thing, and a couple of people in Canada are doing their best to bring it back, while some American states are trying to bring back their own dark past for women’s rights.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 16, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s about all the unanswered questions. Will another scandal permanently sink the Liberals chances for re-election? Which political party will disappointed progressives find more appealing in the election? Will Doug Ford ever run out of scandals? And is there an election somewhere that might be bigger and stranger than anything going on in Canada? Continue reading

It’s another busy week here in the Open Sources Guelph newsroom. We’ve got environmental stuff on the go with talk about the carbon tax and the small matter of a million species dying out.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 2, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we take a mid-spring break. Does that sound weird? Too bad, we’re doing! Maybe we’re heading to Ottawa to see the Storm in the final round of the OHL playoffs. Maybe we’re heading south to campaign for “Uncle” Joe Biden. Maybe we’re workshopping our puppet musical about the life of Nikola Tesla. In any event, we’re replaying our most recent interviews with the MP and MPP of the riding of Guelph. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 25, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we learn again that elections have consequences. Here in Canada, we’ll look at the consequences of two very big provincial elections at either end of the country, and here in Ontario we’ll again look at what happens when you elect a party with no costed platform. But hey, it could be worse. The head of your government might be an unindicted co-conspirator who may only not be in jail right now because he’s President of the United States! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 18, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to give ourselves a bit of a beak before the long weekend. Instead of our usual panorama of new and breaking news from the past week, we’re going to have a series of interviews on this edition of the show. We’ll hear from our own Member of Provincial Parliament, a man who wants to the Member of Parliament for a nearby riding, and a leader in organized labour for Ontario workers, and they all have something to say. Continue reading
