Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 16, 2016

orlando

It’s been another one of those weeks. A week that reminds just how bad the bad guys can be and how even a night of dancing and frivolity can turn into an unprecedented bloodbath. On Open Sources Guelph this week, we will understandably try and tackle the terrorist attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL, site of what is now the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States. In more political concerns, we’ll talk about how the last two years have been going for the government of Kathleen Wynne here in Ontario, and how our local MPP got a new job in cabinet. Then, we’ll continue with part three of our twelve part series interviewing a member of Guelph’s City Council, who this time hails from Ward 5. Continue reading

AP-GOP-2016-Trump.1

So that happened. No matter where you reside on the political spectrum, watching the drama unfold Tuesday night had you on the edge of your seat as an intrepid, trail-blazing woman tried to hold her own against a consortium of powerful men had you mesmerized… But enough about the Agent Carter finale! This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll eagerly take up the American political discussion again, and mix in the promised dissection of last week’s Ontario Budget. We’ll also talk about the latest developments in Syria, and take a time trip to Guelph’s General Hospital to look at an emergency room emergency situation. Continue reading

We said we’d never go there, but they tasked us. They tasked us! So on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, we’ll open with discussion of the trial of Jian Ghomeshi, and how just about no one involved, including the media covering it, will come out looking good. We will also dig into the complexities of affordable housing in Guelph, the greater complexities of the war against ISIS, and the curiosities of the U.S. Presidential race. Continue reading

Almost two weeks after the attacks in Paris, things seem to be unraveling all the more in terms of the world’s tenuous geopolitical situation. This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll do our small part to offer insight and analysis on these perilous circumstances, and the consequences of the ongoing war, like refugees. Meanwhile in Canada, the domestic picture is not so rosy with money issues and the return of a name whom in no small way had a huge impact on the outcome of the election. Continue reading

In a strange turn of fate, the year on Open Sources Guelph began with an attack on Paris, and as the year winds down, Paris has come under attack again. As the news has buckled under the weight of changing developments, we will also take a look at two homegrown developments, whether a serial killer has the right to sell awful conspiracy/spy fiction, and the struggle for the Royal City to balance the books once again.

Kory Teneycke Says that Conservative Ad is More “Truthful” Than the News

Kory-Teneycke-still

With the arrival and equally quick dismissal of HarperPAC this week, another big election story was missed as the Conservative Party of Canada launched an online ad meant to delegitimize Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s plan to pull Canadian troops from the fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Posting an online ad to YouTube is nothing new, especially with an election campaign waiting to begin this fall, but the controversy here is that the Conservative Party used sound and video from ISIS’ own media to make the case against Trudeau. You might think that’s in bad taste, or that it even contravenes provisions in the Conservatives’ own recently passed Bill C-51, but it’s okay because according to Conservative spokesman Kory Teneycke, they’re more truthful than the news.
