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.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 11, 2016

donald-trump-ss

On this week’s episode of Open Sources Guelph we consider a name change to the show, at least through to November: “What Stupid Stuff Has Donald Trump Said This Week?” Obviously, that’s how we’ll kick off the show, but we’ll try and keep the insanity of “Cheeto Jesus” to a minimum as we look even further south to the Olympic games in Brazil, which aren’t nearly the disaster of the Trump campaign, but close. Then we’ll head out to Vancouver where one type of housing woe has replaced another, before wrapping things up with the delicate politics of Israel, and what one federal political party might have to say about them.

May Dares Mulcair to Call Harper’s Bluff on Debates

????????????????????????????????????

Green Party of Canada leader Elizabeth May was at the University of Guelph this morning to announce her party’s platform for post-secondary education and addressing youth unemployment, but being the eve of a debate, the media was interested in knowing more about May’s plans, participating via remote on Twitter. The Globe & Mail and Google, who organized tomorrow’s debate on the economy in Calgary, wanted a “steamlined” debate with just Stephen Harper, Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau, but May is still holding out for hope that she can still play ball with the other leaders in a televised debate, and she dared NDP leader Mulcair to make it happen.

VIDEO – Open Sources’ Interview with Elizabeth May

You may have heard this interview on last Thursday’s Open Sources Guelph, but even if you’ve heard it already, you may now be interested in watching it. As you may recall, Green Party of Canada leader Elizabeth May was in Guelph a week ago Monday for the nomination meeting to choose Guelph’s candidate in the upcoming Federal Election. Former Environmental Commissioner of Ontario Gord Miller took the nomination easily running unopposed, so the mood was understandably jubilant. The reason? Greens in Guelph, and across the country, are banking on the idea that May’s 2011 victory in Saanich-Gulf Islands will be the first of many more electoral victories in 2015. After the night’s business was done, Open Sources got a few minutes to talk to May about electoral strategy and Green ambitions for Guelph this October. Continue reading
