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.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s about all the unanswered questions. Will another scandal permanently sink the Liberals chances for re-election?

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.
