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 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”

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 “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 27, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 13, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we will again tackle the pressing issues of the day, and maybe have a few laughs along the way. But probably not. We’re drowning in plastic, and then there’s the drastic changes made by the Ford government, which has decided to take the next five months off having been so productive. We’ll also have a visitor in the form of one of Guelph’s 12 city councillors. Hint? She’ll be doing the interview in her home ward. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 13, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 30, 2019

Summer is here, so tune into Open Sources Guelph this week while sitting out on the patio drinking a beer. That’s the vision that the Ontario government wants you to follow up on, or perhaps the only response to this week’s news is a good stiff drink. Anyway, we’ll be talking about the latest from the Ontario government, election moves from a pair of former Liberals, and then news from Europe on the future of Brexit, and the new parliament that the continent just elected. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 30, 2019”

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 25, 2019”

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.
