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.

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

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 15, 2018

It was a non-stop political news weekend that had nothing to do with the words “Donald Trump”, and now Open Sources Guelph is going to deal with what comes next. As well as what happened then. It’s an all Ontario, all hour this week as we look back at the high drama and high tension of the PC Leadership vote, and we look ahead to what Ontario might look like with Official Opposition leader Doug Ford. After that, we’ll talk to another leader, Green Party of Ontario leader Mike Schreiner about what you can do to make sure Mike has a chance to debate Ford (and Wynne, and Horwath) face-to-face. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 8, 2018

What an exciting time to be in political-centric radio! This week on Open Sources Guelph, there’s is so much friction to observe and report on, and we begin with the emergency leadership race of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, who are being asked to choose between two talented and accomplished women, and Doug Ford. Also, we’ll talk about how the shiny happy future of NDP leadership might actually be tearing the country apart (in parts). Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 1, 2018

Oh man, we’ve got some issues this week on Open Sources Guelph, and men is the biggest one. In the first half of the show, we’ll talk about the ongoing issues of sexual harassment and assault allegations, which have now found their way to being exposed in Canadian politics and media. And yes, we’ll talk about how one of Toronto’s favourite* sons has now ingratiated himself in the drama. In the back half, we’ll discuss the latest about the pending Russian election, and we’ll look back at two tragedies from a year ago that have become largely forgotten. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 21, 2017

Scotty’s back! The Hertz will be back on Open Sources Guelph this week, in person, following his international tour, and we’ll give him some time and space this week to get back into a Canadian frame of mind with a couple of sweet topics. One the one hand, a new NDP leader is about to be named, and on the other, a beloved face of the past is promising a political return (for us to make fun of). All that, plus some news from away, and an interview with a U of G prof that knows all about statue drama… Continue reading
