Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 12, 2018

Look up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a balloon shaped like the President of the United States as a baby, and it’s going to fly over London in honour of his visit to the United Kingdom! We’re going to try and stay grounded on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, but we’ll still be looking over matters provincially and globally on this edition of the show. We’ll check on the Throne Speech here in Ontario, consider our own border issues here in Canada, and then go international with the man who inspired the balloon, and the internal political strife of one of the places he’s visiting.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 5, 2018

This week’s Open Sources Guelph is sandwiched by change, with violence and sadness in the middle. On the outside, we’ve got a new government in Ontario that’s been sworn in and been making changes, along with a new government in Mexico that’s hoping for the same. On the inside, we’ll look at another mass shooting event in America, this time against reporters, and those allegations against our feminist PM that just won’t go away. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 21, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to try and not make the children cry, but it will be hard. We’ll discuss the latest from the humanitarian crisis south of the border, which is stressful enough to make you want to take a puff of the wacky tobaccy. That will have to wait a few more months here in Canada, but if there’s one thing you won’t have to wait for, it’s the new Ontario government undoing the work of the last one. All that, plus some depressing discussion about the dangers of the big city streets, are coming up on this week’s show. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 14, 2018

It’s back to normal this week on Open Sources Guelph! While the election (one election) is over and done with, there’s still a lot to dissect after Thursday’s vote, and we will dissect all those details on multiple levels be they local, regional and provincial. And since the election has forced us to take a break from U.S. stuff for a while, we’ll check back in with our orange friend south of the border, who has now started mixing it up with Justin Trudeau, and just before he tried to see if he can make a new friend in North Korea. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 10, 2018

Enjoy our last burst of punditry for a while, because next week on Open Sources Guelph it’s going to be all about the candidates. Before all that though, we’re going to be talking about the Ontario election in a broader sense by catching up with the leaders, and then we will look west where the Alberta Conservatives are counting down to their own change election. Also, we’ll talk about the new anti-hate organization that’s arisen from the response to the Toronto Van attack and other incidents of extremism here in Canada, and we’ll finish off with something a little… mellow. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 3, 2018

It’s all a waiting game on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. That writ is going to drop any minute now and we’re going to be in full-blown provincial election mode, but until then we’re going to have to stay tuned and see what everyone else is up to while they’re waiting. Maybe they can look at issues of poverty. We’re certainly going to do that, and we’re going to talk about the future of the most famous face on Ontario’s public broadcaster. All that, plus a special guest in terms of a provincial party leader that’s looking for an upset. (And his initials are not M.S.) Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 12, 2018

This week’s Open Sources Guelph is all about the hard questions. Not that we’re known for the soft balls, of course, but take Syria for example, what are the options in dealing with this conflict that’s now been churning for more than seven years? Or pipelines, how do you balance the environmental concerns with the economic prospects, or can you? There’s also predatory payday loans, and the greatest enigma of all, the man called Douglas Ford Jr.? Continue reading
