This week on Open Sources Guelph, we continue our journey on the election trail with another trip around the ward map.

Open Sources (Ep. #384) Show Notes for July 7, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going back to the swamp. It’s been a pretty consequential week for anyone that wants to see You-Know-Who held to account, and speaking of losers, we will talk about all the ways that some people are making life harder for all our LGBTQ2+ friends. In the second half of the show, we will go out into Wellington County to make new friends… who will soon retire from politics. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #384) Show Notes for July 7, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #382) Show Notes for June 23, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we consider change. Out of Toronto there was a report about policing that proved the worst case scenario, but will those numbers make a distance? Also, might this be the last session of the Canadian government led by the current prime minister? Some people think it’s possible. In the back half? We will work through some change of our own by talking to some local Indigenous voices. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #382) Show Notes for June 23, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #368) Show Notes for March 10, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re flying the yellow and blue. We’re heading back to Ukraine to talk about the latest war developments and the refugee crisis, and we’re going to talk about the local response with the head of Guelph’s Ukrainian Catholic Church.

Open Sources (Ep. #360) Show Notes for January 13, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will demonstrate for some under-reported news stories. For instance, are we putting too much on the back of the vaccine hesitancy movement, and why haven’t we heard more about the far-right contenders in this year’s provincial election? Speaking of the coming vote, our guest this week is one of the candidates in Guelph, and she has a lot of healthcare expertise.
