Open Sources Show Notes for November 14, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get to say goodbye to one of the greatest Canadians who hasn’t been too great for a long time. Oh yes, we’re going to have our say about the Don Cherry controversy, and we’re going to dig back into the swamp for a little impeachment talk. At the bottom of the hour, we’re going to get a little more serious and talk about one of the most disturbing, ongoing crimes of our times with someone who’s lived it.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 31, 2019

Happy Halloween! We’ve got the scariest punditry you could ever imagine on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph. There’s danger and intrigue as the Federal leaders gather their thoughts after the election, there’s a bottomless well of horrors being revealed in Washington as the investigation into Trump goes deeper, and then there’s the most ghastly of all creatures, a smiling Doug Ford telling you he wants to be your friend. [Inset evil laugh.] Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 31, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 26, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we fly the orange flag of welcome for local NDP candidate Aisha Jahangir, the latest candidate to join us for our 2019 series of interview for this Federal Election, but that’s just half the show. For the second half we’re going to look out further at the national campaign, and then take in all the latest drama south of the border, which this week has been more substantial than usual.

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 12, 2019”

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 September 5, 2019”

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. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 29, 2019”

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 August 22, 2019”
