This week, Open Sources Guelph is awash in galling behaviour. In the United States, the President decided to skip the opportunity to remember veterans so he could pout and rage tweet in his hotel room, and in Ontario’s capital building you still never know who might be a scandal waiting to happen. It’s a bummer to be sure, and one that’s compounded this week as we say goodbye to a regular guest as he retires from the political stage. Continue reading

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it might get ugly. We’re coming off a very bad week south of the border, and it only seems to promise to get worse if you-know-who has his say. Worse still, that style of politics seems to be spreading, so we’ll make a pit stop in Brazil before heading home where fighting action on climate change has become a way to bring the country together it seems. We’ll also play catch-up with what will hopefully be a more positive development in democracy. Continue reading
Finally, we’re getting back to normal on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph, and by “normal”, we mean in Trump adjusted terms. The big man will come up in a tertiary way on today’s show, but he will not be our focus. Instead, we’ll be looking at the fallout of the Municipal Election race here in Guelph and other places, the ongoing controversy over the apparent murder of a journalist in Turkey, the lack of controversy from Canada legalizing pot, and we’ll look ahead to the next election. (Naturally.) Continue reading
It’s Back to School Week, and that means people are getting back to the normal routine of things. This week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph is no exception, so as we head into fall, it seems appropriate to reset the clock a little (so to speak). On today’s show we’re going to update you on four big issues that have had a lot of moving parts of the last couple of weeks. In the international, we’ve got the ongoing NAFTA negotiations. In the national, we’ve still got no Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. In the provincial, we’ve got more lawsuits for the PC government. And, in local, we’ve got a proposed suspension of bylaw enforcement. Continue reading
It’s the end of summer for us all, but it’s no where near the end of controversy here on Open Sources Guelph. As we prepare to dive deeply into the municipal election, we’ll take a quick peak at the provincial election next door. Meanwhile, south of the border, it seems like we’re reaching a climax on NAFTA renegotiations, all while the President swallows the bitter pill of decency. Speaking of decent, we’ll wrap up with discussion about the Catholic Church’s latest troubles. Continue reading
THIS WEEK ON OPEN SOURCES GUELPH… Sorry, this week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to walk softly and carry a sarcastic tone. Yes, we need to talk about Trump’s foreign policy, such as it is. We’re also going to talk about how it’s going with Doug Ford and Justin Trudeau on a pair of tricky portfolios. (Hint: It’s not going well.) And to wrap it up, we’re going to not get on the bus. Because in certain places in the country, there are no more buses. Continue reading
This week on Open Sources Guelph we have a very good relationship with Russia. Just kidding! Unlike the U.S. President in a press conference, there will be no butt kissing of the Russian Republic, and it’s not so benevolent dictator here. Once we get these shocking developments on the international stage out of the way, we’re going all-Canadian with news from Ottawa, British Columbia, and Guelph.
