Open Sources (Ep. #378) Show Notes for May 19, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s all election all the time! As we enter the last few weeks of the Ontario Provincial Election, we’re really going to have to step up our game in getting candidates on the air, so we have two back-to-back interviews. In one corner, we’ve got the returning champion in green trunks, and in the other corner, we’ve got a young challenger wearing orange.

Open Sources (Ep. #353) Show Notes for November 25, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re looking cross country, and mostly about environmental stuff. We will head back to British Columbia where talk about Truth and Reconciliation has hit the proverbial fan again, and speaking of things hitting the fan, WE is back in the news too. For the back half of the show, we welcome back our local MPP to talk about the Ontario government’s very bad week on the environment file.

Open Sources (Ep. #348) Show Notes for October 21, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got a potpourri. “Potpourri” is the category on Jeopardy! where they’ve got a lot of great answers that don’t fit into other categories, so this week’s show is a potpourri as we discuss the Alberta municipal elections, and the murder of another British Member of Parliament. In the back half of the show, we’re going to interview a Kitchener man who made history in last month’s Federal election. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #348) Show Notes for October 21, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #345) Show Notes for September 30, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we thought we were done with Federal politics for at least a week, but the news doesn’t care about our own bright ideas. In the last week, we’ve seen the sudden and surprising end to the saga of the Two Michaels, and the sudden and not-so-surprising end of Annamie Paul’s Green Party leadership. In the back half of the show, we go back to 1 Carden Street to talk about Guelph stuff! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #345) Show Notes for September 30, 2021”

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. Local friction? Got that too! We will talk to a member of city council about the latest business around the horseshoe involving two controversial topics.
