Get some friends together and watch this week’s episode of Open Sources Guelph! (Maybe not those ^^^ friends.)

In Canada, we learn that relations with China are complicated, at least so far as their telecom executives are concerned. South of the border, we learn that sometimes a picture is telling a different story than you might have thought. And in the U.K., we learn that… No, we already knew it was a gong show.
