Would you buy a set of encyclopedias from these men? This week on Open Sources Guelph, we won’t consider that question, but we will consider a great many others. This episode of the show will take us from the still bruised U.S. Capitol for one senate hearing, to the red chamber of our own senate where there’s very important social matters being debated.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the hits just keep on coming. The blows are physical if you happen to be in Washington D.C., where the Capitol looks like a demilitarized zone due to the actions of the newly re-impeached 45th President of the United States, and let’s not forget the suffering close to home, which is mostly in the form of people coming down with COVID-19.

Open Sources (Ep. #308) Show Notes for January 7, 2021

It’s a new year here on Open Sources Guelph, our seventh year to be precise, and it feels like not much has changed from the last.

In the second half, we will talk about out lingering issues with you-know-who, and for something completely different, we’ll talk about “demolition by neglect”.

In the first half, we’ll talk about the action to undermine provincial conservation authorities, and the lack of action on homelessness in places across Canada.
