Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 2, 2018

Open Sources Guelph is always looking for efficiencies, so just like Doug Ford we’re going to cut everything in half! Half the time, half the issues, half the hosts… Just kidding, we wouldn’t do that to Scotty! In all seriousness, we’re going to spend half the show this week taking a serious look at the municipal elections this fall, both the things that Ford has done and the things he hasn’t done. In the second half of the show, we’ll talk about the latest, and sorta surprising #MeToo development, and whether owning the libs is a smart political strategy. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 12, 2018

Look up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a balloon shaped like the President of the United States as a baby, and it’s going to fly over London in honour of his visit to the United Kingdom! We’re going to try and stay grounded on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, but we’ll still be looking over matters provincially and globally on this edition of the show. We’ll check on the Throne Speech here in Ontario, consider our own border issues here in Canada, and then go international with the man who inspired the balloon, and the internal political strife of one of the places he’s visiting.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 11, 2018

We’re back! After a holiday break, Open Sources Guelph returns for its epic fourth year of practical news discussion and interviews with local newsmakers. There’s none of the latter this week, but we’ve got plenty of the former. Read any good books lately? Well, we hear there’s one about a certain American administration. Also, it turns out that Trudeau might have been palling around with terrorists after all (in a manner), for some reason people are angry about a pay raise for the people making the least, and people out in the cold are still getting the cold shoulder. So it’s another year in paradise, apparently.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 1, 2016

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we say goodbye to a dictator. Or maybe that’s goodbye to a working class hero. There’s a lot of controversy there as the prime minister knows, and we’ll keep serving up the controversy as Justin Trudeu’s Liberals seem to be hedging on that electoral reform he so vehemently promised last fall. Speaking of flip-flops, we’ll head to Toronto where the mayor there now thinks that tolls aren’t so bad, and we’ll round up the week by talking about everyone’s favourite President-Elect whose wrath we expect to feel on Twitter any day.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 18, 2015

This week’s Open Sources Guelph is going to be epic. It will have the best topics as discussed by the best hosts of the best community radio station in Canada. Seriously. No one is more committed to workers rights and social justice than Scotty Hertz. And Adam A. Donaldson? Clearly the best political mind in the Royal City, without a doubt. If you’re not listening to Open Sources, you’re fired! You might as well export all your national pride to China, along with our manufacturing, because this week’s episode is going to be epic. Or didn’t I already mention that. [The preceding was meant to be read in a bombastic, egocentric vaguely New Jersian accent.] Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 11, 2015

Unless our ship comes in, and we help our friend sell that expensive piece of art for a generous finders fee, Open Sources Guelph will be back on the air as usual on Thursday. This week, after sticking our hands in the muck of the Senate spending scandal, we will wax on the coming election as it’s shaping up here in the Royal City. Then, in the “Lightning Round,” we’ll discuss coffee and politics, carding and cops, and the return of an old frenemie thought forgotten in Federal politics. Continue reading

A Tale of Two Mayors (in Comedies)

22_Minutes_2009

Last night on The Hour Has 22 Minutes, correspondent Mark Critch came to Toronto to catch up with Mayor John Tory and indulge a pleasant day of tobogganing. (Tobogganing not being banned in Toronto as it is in other Ontario municipalities, I refer you to the previous discussion we had about it on the show.) While the entire affair was funny and enjoyable, it did get me thinking (remembering really) of the last time 22 Minutes came to Toronto to talk to the Mayor…. Continue reading
