This week on Open Sources Guelph, we don’t need to make a play for our independence since we’ve already got it! So what are we going to do with our independence? We’re going to talk to a city councillor!! Ward 6’s Dominique O’Rourke will be our guest this week, and then we will talk about the latest from Iran, and another pair trying to strike out on their own… Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for January 16, 2020”
This week on Open Sources Guelph, we take one last kick at the breaking news can before the holiday break. We’ll tackle what’s going on in Canada as the Prime Minister makes the end-of-year media rounds, we’ll look at the latest from the quest to remove Trump from office, and we’ll talk to the youths about how they’re trying to help those that need the most help during the winter months.

Welcome back to this crazy year already in progress, and an all-new year of Open Sources Guelph! Unfortunately, the news didn’t take a break, so there’s a lot of stuff to catch up on, like the government shutdown south of the border. In Canada, we’ll talk about whether carbon tax and electoral reform have a future here, and in our last segment this week, Scotty talks to a kindred spirit.

As a holiday treat, this episode of Open Sources Guelph is going to try an avoid any discussion about our old friends Don and Doug. For the first half of the sow, we’re going to aim for an international flavor by talking about the wave of protests in Paris the last month, and the fact that there seems to be no way out for Brexit. Closer to home, we’ll talk about advocating for a local detox centre, and the always fascinating topic of censorship… of Christmas songs.

It’s Back to School Week, and that means people are getting back to the normal routine of things. This week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph is no exception, so as we head into fall, it seems appropriate to reset the clock a little (so to speak). On today’s show we’re going to update you on four big issues that have had a lot of moving parts of the last couple of weeks. In the international, we’ve got the ongoing NAFTA negotiations. In the national, we’ve still got no Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. In the provincial, we’ve got more lawsuits for the PC government. And, in local, we’ve got a proposed suspension of bylaw enforcement. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 6, 2018”
Open Sources Guelph is always looking for efficiencies, so just like Doug Ford we’re going to cut everything in half! Half the time, half the issues, half the hosts… Just kidding, we wouldn’t do that to Scotty! In all seriousness, we’re going to spend half the show this week taking a serious look at the municipal elections this fall, both the things that Ford has done and the things he hasn’t done. In the second half of the show, we’ll talk about the latest, and sorta surprising #MeToo development, and whether owning the libs is a smart political strategy. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 2, 2018”
This week on Open Sources Guelph we have a very good relationship with Russia. Just kidding! Unlike the U.S. President in a press conference, there will be no butt kissing of the Russian Republic, and it’s not so benevolent dictator here. Once we get these shocking developments on the international stage out of the way, we’re going all-Canadian with news from Ottawa, British Columbia, and Guelph.
