Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 18, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to get election ready! The Federal Election is just a few weeks away, so we’ll check on the status of some of the major parties, plus talk in-depth about one party’s very particular move that made headlines locally and nationally. And on top of all that, we’ll welcome another member of Guelph’s City Council to the studio for another substantive chat about local issues.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 20, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we revisit a couple of our favourite people, one is a youthful, active, left-leaning Canadian politician in his late-40s, and the other is an inactive, inattentive, and far-right leaning American businessman turned politician in his mid-70s. Who are they? Well, they’re not one of the councillors from Guelph’s fourth ward, who will be our special guest in studio this week. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 20, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 7, 2019

This week, Open Sources Guelph will give up cynicism for Lent. Just kidding! We might as well give up breathing!! So considering that, we’ll spend this week talking about the end of the Liberal Party of Canada, and the death knell of the New Democrats. Good thing we didn’t give up hyperbole for Lent either. In any event, we’ll welcome back an old friend from Ward 2 to talk about the budget, and all the latest issues from City Hall. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 7, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 20, 2018

On this week’s Open Sources Guelph, we go live one last time before 2019! After this week, we’ve got two weeks of holiday programming, which is good because we need the break from this political madness. The madness on both sides of the border spill into this week’s show as we look at all the President’s investigations in Washington, and all the scandals at Queen’s Park racing to catch up. We’ll also talk to the other new councillor on city council, and look back at the very busy first month of the new term. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 20, 2018”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 15, 2018

This week, Open Sources Guelph is awash in galling behaviour. In the United States, the President decided to skip the opportunity to remember veterans so he could pout and rage tweet in his hotel room, and in Ontario’s capital building you still never know who might be a scandal waiting to happen. It’s a bummer to be sure, and one that’s compounded this week as we say goodbye to a regular guest as he retires from the political stage. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 15, 2018”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 25, 2018

Finally, we’re getting back to normal on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph, and by “normal”, we mean in Trump adjusted terms. The big man will come up in a tertiary way on today’s show, but he will not be our focus. Instead, we’ll be looking at the fallout of the Municipal Election race here in Guelph and other places, the ongoing controversy over the apparent murder of a journalist in Turkey, the lack of controversy from Canada legalizing pot, and we’ll look ahead to the next election. (Naturally.) Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 25, 2018”
