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. And in terms of local politics, we will talk about the surprisingly bitter politics of patios.
Get some friends together and watch this week’s episode of Open Sources Guelph! (Maybe not those ^^^ friends.) We’re going to talk about those friends and the disturbing allegations around them, and we’re also going to talk about the latest protests erupting from China’s newest crackdown in Hong Kong. After that, we’re going to catch up (virtually) with a member of our own local city council to talk about some of the latest developments in Guelph news.

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.

Or something. Anyway, we’ll talk about all this notwithstanding talk, and then we’ll get right into the interviews. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 13, 2018”
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”

School might be out for summer, and so is Peter Mansbridge, but Open Sources Guelph keeps up its good works all year long and today will be no exception. Summer fun at Toronto Pride was interrupted for some seriousness as one group forced the annual event to get back to where it started from. Others, it seems, will have more time off than they bargained for, as a major crown corporation is looking to force its workers into accepting a new deal. And finally, we’ll talk to one of the few politicians that’s taking the time this summer to work harder… on his musical career. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 7, 2016”
