Open Sources Show Notes for January 16, 2020

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”

Open Sources Show Notes for January 9, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back to our regularly scheduled program and what a program! As we start the new decade, we’ve got one crisis seemingly averted (for now) in the Middle East, and another crisis that’s seemingly being ignored in Australia. In matters that are not crisis-like, but still pressing, we’re going to talk about the start of the Weinstein trial, and the latest on the pipeline fight in British Columbia.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 27, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph is no jaunty burger flipping affair. Of course, we weren’t the ones demoted from being finance minister after just one budget, but it’s hard to believe that’s a cause for celebration. We’re going to cover the upheaval at Queen’s Park last week, and speaking of disasters, we’ll revisit the Trump White House again. In the back half of the show, we’ll look at the ongoing concerns of election security, and the potentially greater threat of nuclear power (or is it a threat?). Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 27, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 26, 2018

THIS WEEK ON OPEN SOURCES GUELPH… Sorry, this week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to walk softly and carry a sarcastic tone. Yes, we need to talk about Trump’s foreign policy, such as it is. We’re also going to talk about how it’s going with Doug Ford and Justin Trudeau on a pair of tricky portfolios. (Hint: It’s not going well.) And to wrap it up, we’re going to not get on the bus. Because in certain places in the country, there are no more buses. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 26, 2018”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 19, 2017

It’s time for another week of fun and adventure here on Open Sources Guelph, and by “fun” and “adventure”, we mean concern and insanity. Back in the U.S., the president decided that he’s had enough of international diplomacy no matter how well it’s working. Meanwhile, in Calgary, the voters there have decided that they like their current municipal leadership just fine, thank you. But there is cause for concern. For instance, might Canada be primed for its own big short? And what about your Halloween costume, is it politically correct enough?  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 19, 2017”

If last week’s show was a major bummer, we try to lighten things up on this week’s Open Sources Guelph with some news that’s a little more hopeful, or at the very least head-scratchingly unbelievable. We look ahead to the coming week as Parliament gets back down to business, and we look at the Official Opposition’s upcoming leadership race and the surprising entry into that race. In other news, relations with an old enemy have thawed a little further, while another damp chill falls over the Canadian media landscape. We said we’d try!

We’re back! It’s the beginning of year two on Open Sources Guelph, and the beginning of a new year, and when those two forces combined it makes for a very busy work week indeed. More trouble in the Middle East? Check. Presidential Election talk? Check? Current U.S. President makes last ditch effort for gun control? Check. Nuts that prove the reason why gun control is needed? Check, and double check! Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 7, 2016”
