Open Sources (Ep. #342) Show Notes for September 9, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got a great election interview double-header. In this corner, we have a returning champion, the NDP candidate Aisha Jahangir, who wants to be Guelph’s first NDP Member of Parliament. And in this corner, we have the new kid, Green Party candidate Michelle Bowman, who will try and make this riding fully Green and not just half-Green. Election Day is almost here!¬† Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #342) Show Notes for September 9, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #336) Show Notes for July 22, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got leadership issues. We’ll head to Manitoba where the effort to right the ship on Indigenous affairs blew up spectacularly on live TV (see above), and then we’ll go to the Federal level where there’s actually some good news for one beleaguered national leader. In the back half, we welcome, perhaps, our most prestigious guest yet, Ontario’s Official Opposition leader! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #336) Show Notes for July 22, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #331) Show Notes for June 17, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, there’s friction. In this province, the friction is around the use of constitutional tools for legislation ruled unconstitutional, but on Parliament Hill, the friction is between members, and former members, of the Green Party.

Open Sources Show Notes for October 8, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph we will take everything we know about a busy news week, pack it in a tote, and leave it in the basement to gather dust because we’ve got a new standard for what a busy news week looks like. So Trump got COVID, and so did, it seems, most of his senior staff, which cast this week’s Vice Presidential debate¬† in doubt. Meanwhile in Canada, we elected a new Green leader with no problem, and we’ve got a new provincial election to talk about. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 8, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for August 6, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, there are a lot of unknowns. Will there be a proper school year with COVID still a thing? Are we ignoring Canada’s growing far-right extremism and conspiracy theorists? And what about future political leaders, who is going to run alongside Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket, and who will lead the Green Party of Canada into the next election? This week, we’ll try to get some answers. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for August 6, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for November 21, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re packed with special guests, one from the local scene, and one from the national scene.
