Open Sources Show Notes for September 10, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going Back to School. Not really, but it’s a theme, and we’re going with it as one of the topics of this week’s show. We’re going to talk about the concerns about kids going back to school, and we’re going to talk about Indigenous-Settler relations on an important anniversary. In the back half of the show, we will look at a big issue closer to home in Guelph with one of the representatives from Ward 2. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for September 10, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for June 11, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph looks very much like last week on Open Sources Guelph. We’re going to talk about the latest on the rejuvenated Civil Rights struggle against anti-Black racism and police brutality, and we’ll have the latest about the pandemic, which is still a thing that’s happening. In between, we’ll talk about the road to the White House, which will surely be bumpy no matter how big a lead the newly-minted challenger has this far out from Election Day. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for June 11, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for June 4, 2020

So that happened this week. Those are dozens of American soldiers standing on guard in front of the Lincoln Memorial in the midst of night eight of nation-wide protests following the death of a black man in Minnesota. This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to talk about everything happening in the United States, or at least try, and we’re going to talk about how it reflects on our own systemic racism here in Canada. Plus, isn’t there still a pandemic going on? Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for June 4, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for May 28, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we have the silly, we have the serious, and we have an in-depth discussion with a politician about the issues. This might be one of the most normal episodes we’ve done in a while, but we’ve still got COVID-19 concerns, especially in long term care homes. We’ll also head to Parliament Hill and we’ll talk to a local politician (for the East Coast) about his Canada-wide concerns for all cities. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for May 28, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for May 21, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph we start with dessert. The Premier of Ontario hasn’t told us to eat cake, but he showed us how to make one, which could be just as bad as the other thing once austerity sets in. That’s just one of the topics we’ll explore on this week’s show along with matters of inquiry in Nova Scotia, the latest attack against a free press, and the messed up labour market being created by Amazon, and its “trillionaire” CEO. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for May 21, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for April 30, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going looking for some answers. Is the Ontario government making the right moves in responding to COVID-19? Does the leader of the Liberal Party have any better answers than the ones coming out of the government? And where in the world is Kim Jong Un? We’re going to do some investigating, or rather, as much investigating as we can in quarantine. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for April 30, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for March 12, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s time to look at Ontario politics again. We’ve got a new Liberal leader to talk about, and while the current Ontario government’s definitely got 99 problems, Steven Del Duca is definitely one. In other news, we’ll also talk about the global and local effects of our newly-minted pandemic, and we’ll head to Europe where there’s new concerns about the treatment of migrants at one particular border.
