Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 18, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got Canadian problems. This will not be an easy one to parse, because these are complicated situations and complicated issues. For instance, what do you do when the system for paying federal employees seems practically unable to work right? What can be done about the persistent allegations of harassment on a Canadian university campus? How should we respond to a made up hate crime?

What happens when everyone agrees there’s a problem and are no closer to a solution? And what happens when almost no one wants to host the world? Those are some of the questions, and we will attempt to find some answers. Continue reading
