Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 14, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we play catch-up, and man, there is a lot of news out there, so we have to take our hour this week and cover all points. We’re going to start in Ottawa where the SNC Lavalin affair has gone on simmer, but there are other controversies. Then it’s off to Ontario and Alberta to look at the provincial political situation. And the last stop, of course, is Washington D.C. where things got very litigious for the President’s former friends. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 28, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll be ping-ponging between matters at home and abroad. In Canada, the leader of the NDP will finally be back in the Commons after winning one of three contentious by-elections, and in Ontario, controversies continue to pile up for the provincial government. Meanwhile, in Vietnam, two world leaders are meeting to accomplish something, while “something” seems to be exactly what we got from the Vatican’s meeting on sex abuse last week. Yay! More good news!! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 7, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the state of the union is deeply cynical with a hint of despair. We’ll talk about Trump’s latest attempt to pivot to presidential, and we’ll talk about the Ford government’s latest pivot away from transparency. After the break, we’ll consider if a serial killer can teach us something about the present tolerance for the queer community, and if a city councillor not taking the bus can tell us something about our transit system.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 17, 2019

On Open Sources Guelph this week, we’ll continue our ongoing coverage of the slow decline of western civilization. In the U.K., Brexit comes to a full boil, and in the U.S., the Russian investigation goes back on the front burner as the President, somehow, looks dirtier. Here in Canada there’s not much more to be proud of. Justin Trudeau shuffled his cabinet, but is he really just shuffling deck chairs on a sinking ship, even while his Reconciliation dreams become a new nightmare? Oh, the pain! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 20, 2018

On this week’s Open Sources Guelph, we go live one last time before 2019! After this week, we’ve got two weeks of holiday programming, which is good because we need the break from this political madness. The madness on both sides of the border spill into this week’s show as we look at all the President’s investigations in Washington, and all the scandals at Queen’s Park racing to catch up. We’ll also talk to the other new councillor on city council, and look back at the very busy first month of the new term. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 6, 2018

With episode 200 out of the way, this week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going back to the current news, and there’s a lot of news to consider. This week, we travel the world as world leaders met in Argentina in a comedy of errors called the G20. Back home, we’re still worried about oil, and in Ontario we’re worried about nepotism. We’ll then wrap up the hour with a tribute to latest member of the President’s Club to take his leave. Continue reading
