Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 8, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph we go around the world! Not literally, of course, and mostly in North America and the U.K., but what we’re saying is that there are world wide implications. From someone that might be the Prime Minister of Canada if he can get his party’s leadership, to a contest to determine who the leader of the United Kingdom will be, to a guy once called the “Leader of the Free World” but seems not even remotely interested in being a leader in his own house. Politics, elections, the environment and terror are all on the docket for this week’s show.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 25, 2017

A couple of big, ongoing political storylines are coming to a head on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. Our favourite wildly unqualified President of the United States is been on his first field trip and making new friends (glad that he and the Pope finally buried the hatchet as seen above), and this weekend, the cliffhanger on the leadership of a major Canadian political party will finally be answered. In other news, we’ll welcome an old friend to the show and get the lowdown on the latest goings on with our local government.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 4, 2017

This week’s Open Sources Guelph will not begin until we’re shown to our villa. But seriously, unlike a certain luxury music festival organized by the man that gave us “Thug Lovin'”, or a certain American administration that we could name, this week’s show will run like a Swiss watch. No guest this week, but we’re going to have lots of discussion about 105 days of Trump, ranked ballots, refusing to pay rent, and why some people this week proved why their best work is behind them.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 13, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph we talk to the man who’s the next leader of the Conservative Party of Canada! You know, if those other 13 people in the race get out of his way. We are happy on this week’s show to be able to talk to Rick Peterson, the bilingual maverick businessman that’s making a serious play to be the head of Canada’s blue team. Before that though, we’ll address the maverick foreign policy of “45” and the maverick action of Guelph’s city council to put the kibosh on online voting. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 30, 2017

On this week’s Open Sources Guelph we have to embrace the inevitable. A long-await return appearance on the show of a much discussed politician… Guelph MP Lloyd Longfield! After having to bail last minute last week, Longfield graciously offered to appear live and in-person on this Thrusday’s show to talk about the budget and other Ottawa-related stuff. Speaking of which, we’ll also discuss the government’s long-awaited plan to legalize marijuana, and while we’re on the topic of drugs, we may need to take some after we check in with Donald Trump and see what he’s been doing and saying lately.  Continue reading

The Weekender: Trump Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

Let us pause the resistance for a moment to wallow in the crapulance of Donald Trump’s reputation as a negotiator and great deal maker. Trump’s election to the U.S. presidency was based on the erroneous notion that he was a businessman par excellence, that he could run the government like a business and make the deals that career politicians cannot. In fact, there’s miles of evidence that shows Trump’s horrid track record as a businessman, and in just 64 very long days there’s now quite a collection of proof that the talents Trump doesn’t have in business are not helping him as president either. Continue reading

Now Donald Trump’s Going to Get a Comic Book Too…

Almost a year ago, we posted about the arrival of Justin Trudeau in comic book form, and how it mirrored the comic book boom of Barack Obama when he was first elected as President in 2008. Well, the new President, Donald J. Trump, is not immune to comic book inspiration in seems, but in the case of “45” this graphic novel is hardly going to be flattering. Continue reading
