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. In local news, we’re going to talk about one of Guelph Ward 1 councillors who’s been in the middle of a whirlwind lately.

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.

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”
