Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 25, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we learn again that elections have consequences. Here in Canada, we’ll look at the consequences of two very big provincial elections at either end of the country, and here in Ontario we’ll again look at what happens when you elect a party with no costed platform. But hey, it could be worse. The head of your government might be an unindicted co-conspirator who may only not be in jail right now because he’s President of the United States! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 11, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we look to the future. Not the type of future with jetpacks and stuff, but the more immediate future about the 2019 Federal Election. Specifically, are we doing enough to tackle the creeping alt-right, not to mention foreign influencers looking to peddle? Back in the present, we’ll look at the new Ontario government’s first budget, and the doings south of the border at the other southern border. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 28, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph many of our ongoing stories lines come to a head, but it’s not exactly the end of the story. We’ll look at the questions that still linger even though the Mueller Report has been delivered. We’ll cover the beginning of the Alberta election, which might be the end of one brief dynasty. Abroad, we’ll look at the exit that didn’t happen, but still might, and then a candidate in Israel’s election seems to be depending on some of that foreign interference. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

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
