Open Sources Show Notes for November 26, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph will formally start our transition to getting through these last few episodes before our Christmas break and the end of 2020. Still, it’s been another busy seven days in the news business, and we will spend our hour catching up with the Biden transition, and the creeping of conspiracy theories in Canada. Staying in Canada, we will also talk about the back end problems with the CERB, and how housing is still an issue despite the pandemic.

Open Sources Show Notes for November 19, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Plague, Death, War, and Spite. One of those may not be an actual Horseman, put it is a fairly succinct description of the current occupant of the White House who is letting Plague and Death run unchecked. Things aren’t much better plague-wise speaking here in Ontario, or in the rest of Canada, and that’s where War comes in. He’s got his own room in Alberta and everything!

Open Sources Show Notes for November 12, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s schadenfreude time! Sadly we can’t dedicate the whole hour to sad orange man, but we can discuss his status as a loser for at least one segment. After that, we will talk about the “Great Whole Foods Poppy Controversy of 2020” (TM), and we will talk to our local MPP about last week’s budget reveal, and the current status of fighting COVID-19 here in Ontario. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for November 12, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 29, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph is another one of those weeks where there’s almost too much news, and it’s not all related to the U.S. Presidential Election, which is definitely one of our topics for this show. Along with that, we will also talk about the four (!) elections we had in Canada this week, the continuing failures of Reconciliation in Caledonia, and labour strife in Alberta in their… healthcare sector?! Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 29, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 15, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got some leftovers to dig through on our post-Thanksgiving show. COVID is back, not that it ever really left, but things are getting more dangerous as the colder weather arrives. In other leftovers, we’re got “Blue Lives Matter” making a comeback, more news about the American election, and a surprising update about the battle against online hate. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 15, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 8, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph we will take everything we know about a busy news week, pack it in a tote, and leave it in the basement to gather dust because we’ve got a new standard for what a busy news week looks like. So Trump got COVID, and so did, it seems, most of his senior staff, which cast this week’s Vice Presidential debate  in doubt. Meanwhile in Canada, we elected a new Green leader with no problem, and we’ve got a new provincial election to talk about. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 8, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for September 24, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s a jam-packed news week, and there’s a lot of ground to cover. In Ottawa, the government is trying to avoid an election, but the truth is that everybody wants to avoid an election because the number of COVID cases are going up at alarming rates again. And speaking of elections, a new wrench was thrown into the U.S. Election, and since that looks like its so much fun, the Premier of B.C. seems to have decided he’d like to see an election too.
