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!

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. #359) Show Notes for January 6, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back after a holiday break. Did we miss anything? I know, we’ll tell you. Let’s see, we took a sudden U-turn back to lockdown this week in Ontario, but we did make some some progress on Truth and Reconciliation. On the other hand, it’s the first anniversary of that time a bunch of people tried to overthrow America for a game show host, and has anyone heard from Putin lately? Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #359) Show Notes for January 6, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #336) Show Notes for July 22, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got leadership issues. We’ll head to Manitoba where the effort to right the ship on Indigenous affairs blew up spectacularly on live TV (see above), and then we’ll go to the Federal level where there’s actually some good news for one beleaguered national leader. In the back half, we welcome, perhaps, our most prestigious guest yet, Ontario’s Official Opposition leader! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #336) Show Notes for July 22, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #334) Show Notes for July 8, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we bring you some good news and some bad news. We start with bad news and more signs of the growing climate catastrophe, but there is some good news on the Indigenous file after weeks of basically terrible news. However, to end the show, we go back to the bad in U.S. politics where alternate realities continue to collide half-a-year after everything should have changed. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #334) Show Notes for July 8, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #333) Show Notes for July 1, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the holiday is a work day. By a matter of cosmic coincidence, and some slight mathematical adjustments authorized by Pope Gregory XIII in the 16th century, this week’s show is on Canada Day, and our focus is on the original Canadians. We’re discussing residential schools, Canada Day, and we’ll have an interview with three local Indigenous people about challenging all that. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #333) Show Notes for July 1, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #330) Show Notes for June 10, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we tackle complexity. Even though everybody apparently agrees that we need more action on Indigenous issues, there hasn’t been much, and then we will have a personal health moment to talk about all our vaccine options. Then, we fill focus on simpler things, like the friction between the government and teachers, with the head of one of the province’s four teachers’ unions.
