Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 12, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re just really eager to get this election started, Justin! (He might be listening.) So we’ll kick off this week’s episode with an election preview, and then we’ll get into the week’s news, which is also, for the most part, about elections. We’ll discuss the increased security for a Federal cabinet minister because of online threats, the results of the Manitoba election, and some more of the U.S. President’s patented Kool-Aid Man diplomacy.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 5, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re all like “When are you going to call an election, Justin!” But seriously, folks, there’s lots of serious stuff to discuss. The battle between the NDP and Green Party for the hearts and minds of Canadian progressives just got hotter, the legal battle over the carbon tax marches on in spite of common sense, everything about Donald Trump battles for our attention, and the Brexit situation in the U.K. has somehow managed to become a bigger battle. Put your serious faces on, this is going to be a rough one. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 29, 2019

 

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we wind down the summer with a relaxing look at the schizophrenic diplomatic situation around the world. Seriously, the global political order is not coming apart at the seams, it just feels like it. Anyway, we’ll talk about that ball of zany that sums up the lost weekend at the France hosted G7, and we’ll look at the seriously explosive situation in Kashmir. Closer to home, we’ll look at the past politics of the Federal Conservative leader, and whether there’s a possibility that a more rational Republican might unseat the standard-bearer in 2020.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 22, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we finally have an election in progress to talk about, just not the one we were expecting.  Yup, the writ has been drawn up in Manitoba for a provincial election there, but before we get into those issues, we’ve got stuff to talk about right here in Ontario as our Premier tried to convince the cities he’s done so much too that he’s not such a bad guy. In the back half, we’ll talk about gun issues here and in America, and what it really means to be Antifa. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 25, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re wondering if anyone’s going on summer vacation. In Ottawa, the news keeps coming even as we’re counting down to a fall election. In the United States, the special counsel is back in the news despite his best efforts. In the U.K. there’s a new sheriff in town, and he’s going to make people do what he wants on Brexit (apparently). And finally, not to disturb your calm, but the rent is pretty damn expensive here in Canada, and we have the data to prove it now.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 4, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, everyone loves a parade. This could be a reference to the Fourth of July sideshow that Trump is putting on today, but it could just as easily be a reference to his parade of embarrassments and scandals in the last week alone. Along with that, we’ll talk about the protests in Hong Kong, the politics of cartooning, and a Supreme Court case that should have a positive effect on victims of rape seeking justice in Canada. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 27, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph is no jaunty burger flipping affair. Of course, we weren’t the ones demoted from being finance minister after just one budget, but it’s hard to believe that’s a cause for celebration. We’re going to cover the upheaval at Queen’s Park last week, and speaking of disasters, we’ll revisit the Trump White House again. In the back half of the show, we’ll look at the ongoing concerns of election security, and the potentially greater threat of nuclear power (or is it a threat?). Continue reading
