Open Sources Guelph came on the air with a discussion of extremism back in 2015, and it’s been kind of a recurring theme ever since. This week, extremism hits New Zealand and we’ll talk about the implications, as well as the implications for Canada’s own growing hate movements. On the lighter side, we’ll also talk about the newly revealed Federal budget, and the latest follies from Queen’s Park. Continue reading

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
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
This week on Open Sources Guelph we go where the people are, and they are all over the place. Officials from cities across Ontario and the provincial government met in Ottawa for AMO, and we’ll talk about how that went. Also, the federal Conservatives are meeting in Halifax, and that’s just getting started. In the second half of the show, we’ll talk about the environment, matters of heatwaves and plastic taxes.
This week is a Canadian affair on Open Sources Guelph. There’s a lot of stuff going on at the federal level, not the least of which is the announcement of the budget, but there’s also still a lot to unpack, and not just luggage, from the PM’s recent Southeast Asian excursion. After that, we’ll talk about our own Conservative leader following in the example of the conservative leader south of the border, and why we’re mad at the major media providers this week. Continue reading
We’re quickly approaching the end of the year and the holiday season here at Open Sources Guelph, and that means this will sadly be our last live show of 2017. We never thought we’d get to the end of 2017, but we did, and we’re relieved. So before diving into our annual political movie picks and awards, we’ll look at the recent election. No, not that election, the one that happened in Canada this week. We’ll also talk about a new guaranteed income plan in Canada, the results of the Guelph City Council debate on the hydro merger, and the year in Guelph politics. Continue reading
It was a big, big week for Canadian political news, and Open Sources Guelph is here to analyze it all! Or some of it. Or four different topics in it. Well, three really. Okay, so obviously the big story is that there’s a new Official Opposition Leader, and he’s got a lot to do if he’s to unite the party and put together a campaign policy that can defeat the Trudeau Liberals in two years. We’ll talk about what happened at the Conservative convention, talk about what’s happening with the B.C. government, and how one form of terrorism is not being covered like the other. Continue reading
