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 21, 2019

Open Sources Guelph came on the air with a discussion of extremism back in 2015, and it’s been kind of a recurring theme ever since. This week, extremism hits New Zealand and we’ll talk about the implications, as well as the implications for Canada’s own growing hate movements. On the lighter side, we’ll also talk about the newly revealed Federal budget, and the latest follies from Queen’s Park. 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 24, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get an education. Here in Ontario, we learn that you don’t get something for nothing when it comes to post-secondary education in the Ford era. In Canada, we learn that relations with China are complicated, at least so far as their telecom executives are concerned. South of the border, we learn that sometimes a picture is telling a different story than you might have thought. And in the U.K., we learn that… No, we already knew it was a gong show.
