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.

Open Sources Show Notes for December 19, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we take one last kick at the breaking news can before the holiday break. We’ll tackle what’s going on in Canada as the Prime Minister makes the end-of-year media rounds, we’ll look at the latest from the quest to remove Trump from office, and we’ll talk to the youths about how they’re trying to help those that need the most help during the winter months.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 9, 2019

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. In between, we’ll talk about religious matters of law in Quebec, and take a look at all the people who want to replace Donald Trump as the leader of the free world. Just business as usual.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 9, 2016

Let’s talk elections this week. Who’s running them, who’s taking part in them, and how some people want to change them. This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will dive back into the U.S. Presidential Election, not for the last time, to talk about the end of the primary process, but maybe we should rename this segment “What stupid thing has Trump said now?” Meanwhile, a key Canadian political figure threw her support behind one of Mr. Trump’s rivals, while the federal government continues to dawdle about our own electoral reform ambitions. And in the end, we’ll discuss the Toronto by-election, where one good Ford might fill the shoes of another. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 9, 2016”

It’s a gong show! It’s a circus! They’re acting like children! No, that’s not the U.S. Presidential race that people were talking about this week, but yeah, we’ll get to that. On this week’s Open Sources Guelph we’ll tackle Guelph city council’s tackling of leaks and the hour-and-a-half rake out that happened at the meeting Monday. We’ll also catch up with that election south of the border and all its colourful characters, and catch-up with our local Member of Parliament to get all the latest scoop from Ottawa.

Stop us if you’ve heard this one, but it was a very busy news week here for Open Sources Guelph. No special guests today (but they are coming) but there will be lots of discussion on big topics. For instance, it looks like the one per cent is full of tax cheaters, some of whom you may know by name (stop us if you’ve heard this one). In other news, we bravely descend back into the muck of the U.S. Presidential Election, which marches on in perpetuity to find new levels of insanity. In the back half of the show, we’ll talk Canadian politics with a leadership test for a federal leader, and a leadership test passed for a provincial one. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 7, 2016”

It’s civics, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph. Civics because we’ll be hosting a Guelph city councillor in the second half of the show; drugs because we’re going to be talking about Toronto is exploring a new pilot project that’s had great success in Vancouver; and rock ‘n’ roll because of the U.S. Presidential Election, which remains the greatest show on Earth. It’s everything a Nazi Grandma could love. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 17, 2016”
