Open Sources Show Notes for December 12, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, Christmas comes early. At least it does if you want to hear sound bites from the six contenders that want to be the future leader of the Liberal Party of Ontario. They were all in Guelph last weekend, and we got them all on the record. Speaking of Ontario matters, we’re also going to talk about the current situation with the teachers, and then we’ll look to the other side of the pond and their current electoral situation.

Open Sources Show Notes for November 7, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it seems like we’re all about endings and separations. We’ve got a growing number of people out west eager to start their own country, we’ve got a Federal party leader leaving her job behind, and we have the U.K. holding an election to decided if they’re really leaving the E.U. this time. On the other hand, it looks like transit expansion might be starting in Toronto, and, if there’s time, we’ll consider the question why someone thinks that Ben Mulroney is the savior of the Conservative Party.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 5, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re all like “When are you going to call an election, Justin!” But seriously, folks, there’s lots of serious stuff to discuss. The battle between the NDP and Green Party for the hearts and minds of Canadian progressives just got hotter, the legal battle over the carbon tax marches on in spite of common sense, everything about Donald Trump battles for our attention, and the Brexit situation in the U.K. has somehow managed to become a bigger battle. Put your serious faces on, this is going to be a rough one. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 5, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 25, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re wondering if anyone’s going on summer vacation. In Ottawa, the news keeps coming even as we’re counting down to a fall election. In the United States, the special counsel is back in the news despite his best efforts. In the U.K. there’s a new sheriff in town, and he’s going to make people do what he wants on Brexit (apparently). And finally, not to disturb your calm, but the rent is pretty damn expensive here in Canada, and we have the data to prove it now.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 25, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 12, 2018

Look up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a balloon shaped like the President of the United States as a baby, and it’s going to fly over London in honour of his visit to the United Kingdom! We’re going to try and stay grounded on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, but we’ll still be looking over matters provincially and globally on this edition of the show. We’ll check on the Throne Speech here in Ontario, consider our own border issues here in Canada, and then go international with the man who inspired the balloon, and the internal political strife of one of the places he’s visiting. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 12, 2018”

This week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph will touch on several different aspects of news and current affairs: politics, the economy, technology and diplomacy. In Canada, we’ll consider the epic series finale to the Duffy trial, nearly one year long in the making, and we’ll consider Bombardier asking “Please sir, may I have so more?” of the Federal government. In the States, a rich and powerful corporation is sticking up for individual privacy, and Great Britain is trying to decide if it will be greater without being ankled by the European Union.
