This week on Open Sources Guelph we have a very good relationship with Russia. Just kidding! Unlike the U.S. President in a press conference, there will be no butt kissing of the Russian Republic, and it’s not so benevolent dictator here. Once we get these shocking developments on the international stage out of the way, we’re going all-Canadian with news from Ottawa, British Columbia, and Guelph.

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.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to try and not make the children cry, but it will be hard. We’ll discuss the latest from the humanitarian crisis south of the border, which is stressful enough to make you want to take a puff of the wacky tobaccy. That will have to wait a few more months here in Canada, but if there’s one thing you won’t have to wait for, it’s the new Ontario government undoing the work of the last one. All that, plus some depressing discussion about the dangers of the big city streets, are coming up on this week’s show. Continue reading
It’s back to normal this week on Open Sources Guelph! While the election (one election) is over and done with, there’s still a lot to dissect after Thursday’s vote, and we will dissect all those details on multiple levels be they local, regional and provincial. And since the election has forced us to take a break from U.S. stuff for a while, we’ll check back in with our orange friend south of the border, who has now started mixing it up with Justin Trudeau, and just before he tried to see if he can make a new friend in North Korea.

The warmer weather has ushered in a very political news week on Open Sources Guelph. We’ll catch-up with the latest in local political news, and the latest from the Federal Liberals who are acting like an election’s coming. Circumstances also demand that we revisit Trump World on today’s show, while another set of circumstances demand we revisit the growing influence of the alt-right. Continue reading
This week’s Open Sources Guelph is all about the hard questions. Not that we’re known for the soft balls, of course, but take Syria for example, what are the options in dealing with this conflict that’s now been churning for more than seven years? Or pipelines, how do you balance the environmental concerns with the economic prospects, or can you? There’s also predatory payday loans, and the greatest enigma of all, the man called Douglas Ford Jr.? Continue reading
It’s another week of dramatic developments here on Open Sources Guelph where we know drama! For instance, we talk about the climactic chapter of a provincial leadership campaign, and if you thought things were sloppy there, then you haven’t heard the news about a certain separatist federal party. Back in Trumpland, that ship is sinking faster than usual, while in Hamilton, it looks like they had a G20 meeting without the meeting (if you know what we mean). Our donuts will never be the same.
