Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 7, 2017

There’s some big trouble brewing on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. No, no one on this show has broken the law, but someone that was once in the Trump administration sure did! How about the Trudeau government, anyone breaking the law there? Maybe not, but that doesn’t mean the opposition isn’t kicking up some kind of fuss. And finally, no laws were broken during the passing of the city budget this week, but some feelings were probably hurt.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 23, 2017

There are no easy answers on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. The year 2017 will likely go down as the one where everything changed for women in the workplace, and the allegations keep coming in against more and more powerful men, and we’ll talk about the latest on the political side of things. Also, college students are finally back at school, but the real question is what have they lost? We see again that these vaunted pipeline projects also lose, even if they win, and people in Toronto are wondering if they’ve gained something by getting rid of traffic from a key section of King Street.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 2, 2017

Welcome to November, and can you believe it’s almost been a year since Donald Trump was first elected as President of the United States? Neither can we. It’s felt like three years! But seriously, the man himself will be one of the topics on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, as we dive into the highly consequential events this past Monday and what it means going forward. We’ll also talk about the recent attack in New York, and why it seems to be treated differently than *other* recent events, and we’ll have a sit down chat with a provincial cabinet member who is not our MPP.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 19, 2017

It’s time for another week of fun and adventure here on Open Sources Guelph, and by “fun” and “adventure”, we mean concern and insanity. Back in the U.S., the president decided that he’s had enough of international diplomacy no matter how well it’s working. Meanwhile, in Calgary, the voters there have decided that they like their current municipal leadership just fine, thank you. But there is cause for concern. For instance, might Canada be primed for its own big short? And what about your Halloween costume, is it politically correct enough?  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 5, 2017

This calls for a celebration! That seems to be the news this week on Open Sources Guelph, because, as they say, every dark cloud has a silver lining. That dark cloud includes some violence in Spain over a vote of independence by one of the regions there, and the pitiful reaction of the U.S. government to recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. The silver lining? How about the fact that a federal party elected a visible minority as its new leader? Or the fact that the electoral reform fight is far from over?  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 31, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we laboured to make our pre-Labour show Trump-free, but the man can’t let a week go by without blowing the doors off another political norm, and last Friday he broke about 12 even as a hurricane was bearing down on the U.S. We’ll have to discuss Trump’s latest move to undermine common decency, but we’ll also talk about the new faces (and positions) in the federal cabinet, and the new routes and schedules for Guelph Transit with the man who runs that service.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 17, 2017

So what did you do last weekend? Chances are you neither stood for, or against, Nazism and white supremacy, but on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph, we will look at someplace that’s change the face, or perhaps revealed the face, of modern America this past Saturday in Virginia. We will dedicate some overtime to that subject this week, and then we will talk about why it’s hard out there to be Conservative in Ontario right now, and what an east coast newspaper’s going to do now that a very long-term strike is over.  Continue reading
