Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 20, 2018

On this week’s Open Sources Guelph, we go live one last time before 2019! After this week, we’ve got two weeks of holiday programming, which is good because we need the break from this political madness. The madness on both sides of the border spill into this week’s show as we look at all the President’s investigations in Washington, and all the scandals at Queen’s Park racing to catch up. We’ll also talk to the other new councillor on city council, and look back at the very busy first month of the new term. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 6, 2018

With episode 200 out of the way, this week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going back to the current news, and there’s a lot of news to consider. This week, we travel the world as world leaders met in Argentina in a comedy of errors called the G20. Back home, we’re still worried about oil, and in Ontario we’re worried about nepotism. We’ll then wrap up the hour with a tribute to latest member of the President’s Club to take his leave. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 22, 2018

This Open Sources Guelph is going to be a dire one. We’re going to talk about Brexit, which is going about as well as everyone expected. We’re going to talk about sex abuse, which seemed to have been baked into the culture of a prestigious Toronto school. We’re going to talk about the lack of support for trans rights in the governing PC Party. And we’re going to talk about our country’s environmental failures. Hold on to your butts. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 15, 2018

This week, Open Sources Guelph is awash in galling behaviour. In the United States, the President decided to skip the opportunity to remember veterans so he could pout and rage tweet in his hotel room, and in Ontario’s capital building you still never know who might be a scandal waiting to happen. It’s a bummer to be sure, and one that’s compounded this week as we say goodbye to a regular guest as he retires from the political stage. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 1, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it might get ugly. We’re coming off a very bad week south of the border, and it only seems to promise to get worse if you-know-who has his say. Worse still, that style of politics seems to be spreading, so we’ll make a pit stop in Brazil before heading home where fighting action on climate change has become a way to bring the country together it seems. We’ll also play catch-up with what will hopefully be a more positive development in democracy. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 13, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we were all ready to hunker down and focus on our first batch of municipal election interviews, but no, Doug Ford had to go and break constitutional norms because he wasn’t going to be stopped by some un-elected judge! Or something. Anyway, we’ll talk about all this notwithstanding talk, and then we’ll get right into the interviews. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 6, 2018

It’s Back to School Week, and that means people are getting back to the normal routine of things. This week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph is no exception, so as we head into fall, it seems appropriate to reset the clock a little (so to speak). On today’s show we’re going to update you on four big issues that have had a lot of moving parts of the last couple of weeks. In the international, we’ve got the ongoing NAFTA negotiations. In the national, we’ve still got no Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. In the provincial, we’ve got more lawsuits for the PC government. And, in local, we’ve got a proposed suspension of bylaw enforcement. Continue reading
