This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re in a mood to celebrate, or we would be if the special occasion in question was something other than the start of a global pandemic. On this paper anniversary of the COVID-19 lockdown, we will talk about the politics of vaccines, and the racial politics of being royal.

This week, Open Sources Guelph will give up cynicism for Lent. Just kidding! We might as well give up breathing!! So considering that, we’ll spend this week talking about the end of the Liberal Party of Canada, and the death knell of the New Democrats. Good thing we didn’t give up hyperbole for Lent either.

As Scotty Hertz continues his search for King Solomon’s mine or whatever, the retconning of Open Sources Guelph this week continues with its transformation into a hardcore news show without any of that working class hero nonsense. So what are we doing this week? We’ve got the singing city councillor, and Guelph’s most well-known pot activist! Okay, so it’s not going to be *super* serious, but we’re going to tackle serious issues, in a serious way, with some fine and affable local characters. In other words… Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 14, 2017”
