Open Sources Show Notes for August 20, 2020

This week there’s a surprising amount of news for the middle of August on Open Sources Guelph. There’s election news out of the United States, but more surprisingly, there’s election news out of Canada as one of the Atlantic provinces is going to polls. Will there be a Federal election in Canada? Not for a month thanks to some shadiness by Justin Trudeau, which might be the name of a book published by Rebel Media, which we will also talk about.

Open Sources Show Notes for August 6, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, there are a lot of unknowns. Will there be a proper school year with COVID still a thing? Are we ignoring Canada’s growing far-right extremism and conspiracy theorists? And what about future political leaders, who is going to run alongside Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket, and who will lead the Green Party of Canada into the next election? This week, we’ll try to get some answers. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for August 6, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for June 25, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to take a break from the ongoing stories that have so pre-occupied us these last few weeks to revisit some golden oldies. We’ve got Canada-China relations, we’ve got some Donald Trump stuff, and we’ve got the Conservative leadership race for a well-rounded news diet.

Open Sources Show Notes for June 11, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph looks very much like last week on Open Sources Guelph. We’re going to talk about the latest on the rejuvenated Civil Rights struggle against anti-Black racism and police brutality, and we’ll have the latest about the pandemic, which is still a thing that’s happening. In between, we’ll talk about the road to the White House, which will surely be bumpy no matter how big a lead the newly-minted challenger has this far out from Election Day.

Open Sources Show Notes for March 5, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we want to focus on the nice things in life, like the crossover team-up of two young female activists, but instead there’s some grimier stuff we have to deal with, like a certain disgusting sticker that depicts one of the ladies above. We’re also going to talk about the rise in hate towards Canada’s First Nations’ people, the latest from the Democrats, and the official ballot for Canada’s own leadership race in the Opposition Party.

Open Sources Show Notes for February 27, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s more of the same hits as we look at the now expanded rail blockades, and the latest from the race to find the 46th American President. In new stuff, we’ll look at the latest test to Canada’s laws regarding sex work, and we’ll have an appropriately timed conversation with the Minister for Women (and other things). Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for February 27, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for February 13, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, there’s friction. When Canadians leave home, interesting things seem to happen, which may be the least controversial thing we discuss this week. Next, things are far from cool as the debate over constructing a pipeline hits an all-new level of agitation, the contest to find a Democratic candidate is still as contentious as ever, and we’ll wrap up by talking about how we should react when controversial figures get some bad news of their own.
