Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 6, 2018

With episode 200 out of the way, this week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going back to the current news, and there’s a lot of news to consider. This week, we travel the world as world leaders met in Argentina in a comedy of errors called the G20. Back home, we’re still worried about oil, and in Ontario we’re worried about nepotism. We’ll then wrap up the hour with a tribute to latest member of the President’s Club to take his leave. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 6, 2018”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 27, 2017

The people have waited long enough, and it is time again for another episode of Open Sources Guelph. On this week’s show, we’ll talk about the man who loves to talk, and talk, and talk, while digging himself into deeper, and deeper, and deeper holes. After that, we’ll look at what’s going on here in Canada. In Alberta, the unification of the right is going about as well as to be expected, Sears employees are mad as hell but there’s not much they can do about it, and there’s a Facebook page with “proud” in the title that might make you feel less proud if you read it.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 27, 2017”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 23, 2017

Now going three weeks strong without a branded Trump topic (you just can’t get away from this guy), Open Sources Guelph comes at you this Thursday with 100 per cent Can Con (and 75 per cent Con Con).

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 17, 2016


We’re pleased to take a break from the live-feed of the Washington circus this week on Open Sources Guelph to deal with more present matters here in Canada. Yes, there are plenty of leadership-related predicaments here in the Great White North, and they need to be given some air time too. For instance, did you know that no one’s running for the federal NDP leadership yet? Meanwhile, things are getting a little off the rails in the Federal and Alberta Conservative leadership campaigns, and if you’re a journalist in Montreal, you better check your phone, because your phone might be listening to you.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 9, 2015


What a week in politics! With the Trial of the Century finally underway, a federal budget coming down the pipe, and not just one, but two, provincial elections in the mix, there’s way too much to talk about this week.

Danielle Smith Loses PC Candidate Vote


The news late last year that Wildrose Party leader Danielle Smith was leading eight of her fellow Alberta Members of the Legislative Assembly across the floor to the governing Progressive Conservative Party was a shocking development. Smith and the Wildrose had truly shaken the real politick of the presumption of ongoing PC rule, but instead, Smith led her rebellion, and now, it seems, she’s led herself to political ruin.
