Open Sources (Ep. #393) Show Notes for September 22, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we continue our journey on the election trail with another trip around the ward map. It’s been a long September (nor December like the Counting Crows song), but we’ve collected another quintet of candidates for this new episode of the show including a couple of people running Ward 2, a visitor from the west end, and a couple of runners from wards south of the river.

Open Sources (Ep. #392) Show Notes for September 15, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph we’re still on the campaign trail. In fact, we’re pretty much living there. We come to you again with dispatches from across the city, mostly from the even number wards. We’ve got two incumbents and three challengers and two of the five guests this week are going head-to-head. The rest? They’re going to work hard to use their 10 minutes to tell why they’re worthy or your vote. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #392) Show Notes for September 15, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #391) Show Notes for September 8, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re heading back to the campaign trail, which is essentially where we’re living for the next several weeks. So we’ve lined up another quintet of municipal election candidates; five down and a great many more to go. So join us once again as we put politically active people in the spotlight and ask them to tell us – and you – why they want to be a city councillor working out of 1 Carden Street.

Open Sources (Ep. #386) Show Notes for July 21, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re thinking charitably. The Pope is coming, so we’re going to put away our sinful ways and talk about his visit, plus the pressing need to take desperate action on housing in Canada. In the back half of the show, we will talk about the local effects of the housing crisis, and other matters, with the head of Guelph’s city council, none other than Mayor Cam Guthrie! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #386) Show Notes for July 21, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #381) Show Notes for June 16, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get back into the swamp. We go back south of the border to talk again about the long corruptible coattails of Donald Trump, and we will also take some time to catch up with the latest from the Conservative leadership race here in Canada. For the second half of the show, we will say an official goodbye to another Friend of OSG who’s decided to retire from politics. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #381) Show Notes for June 16, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #376) Show Notes for May 5, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get to finally unleash our pent up election frustration. The Ontario campaign is finally underway, and we will talk about the stakes before we get a chance to talk to the candidates. We will also, for obvious reasons, have an update about the war in Ukraine. In the back half of the show, a Guelph city councillor might be making his final appearance as a Friend of OSG. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #376) Show Notes for May 5, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #371) Show Notes for March 31, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, slap coverage will be kept to a minimum, unless, of course, the topic of a very immature social media post from the Alberta Premier comes up. Jason Kenney is among our topics of conversation this week, and we will also, obviously, talk about the latest war news from Ukraine. Closer to home, one of CFRU’s city councillors will join us to talk about plans of the official variety. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #371) Show Notes for March 31, 2022”
