We’re quickly approaching the end of the year and the holiday season here at Open Sources Guelph, and that means this will sadly be our last live show of 2017. We never thought we’d get to the end of 2017, but we did, and we’re relieved. So before diving into our annual political movie picks and awards, we’ll look at the recent election. No, not that election, the one that happened in Canada this week. We’ll also talk about a new guaranteed income plan in Canada, the results of the Guelph City Council debate on the hydro merger, and the year in Guelph politics. Continue reading

There’s some big trouble brewing on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. No, no one on this show has broken the law, but someone that was once in the Trump administration sure did! How about the Trudeau government, anyone breaking the law there? Maybe not, but that doesn’t mean the opposition isn’t kicking up some kind of fuss. And finally, no laws were broken during the passing of the city budget this week, but some feelings were probably hurt. Continue reading
It’s a local affair on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. We will shirk the circus and the clown car south of the border, and the sadder and scarier events worldwide to deal with the process and politics here in Guelph, the province of Ontario, and in the country of Canada. Nation-wide, the Liberal government want us to help them help us get into more housing. Provincially, the official opposition announced it’s plan to charm your vote next year, and it may not be completely terrible. Meanwhile, there are big decisions coming up locally, and a member of city council will join us to talk about his thoughts.
This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going international, and then we’re coming around again all the way back to local affairs. So we’ll go Dutch on the German election and talk about our great expectations, and greater disappointments with the vote. Then, in Canada, your boyfriend Justin Trudeau’s having trouble with tax reform, and if you thought maybe Chelsea Manning can help, she’s not allowed into the country apparently. To wrap up, we’ll talk about the non-fun had by Guelphites following this year’s Homecoming frivolity. Continue reading
This week on Open Sources Guelph, we laboured to make our pre-Labour show Trump-free, but the man can’t let a week go by without blowing the doors off another political norm, and last Friday he broke about 12 even as a hurricane was bearing down on the U.S. We’ll have to discuss Trump’s latest move to undermine common decency, but we’ll also talk about the new faces (and positions) in the federal cabinet, and the new routes and schedules for Guelph Transit with the man who runs that service.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going green. For the first half anyway. We’ll have an interview with a not-so-well known but now very influential Green Party politician, and no, it’s not Mike Schreiner. (He was on a few weeks ago.) Speaking of green though, we will dig into a contentious environmental and legal issue, and talk about why it’s so darn hard for our prime minister to stop having his picture taken… Continue reading
This week on Open Sources Guelph we’re having summer thoughts. The federal government has risen for the summer, and we will recap a not-so-great couple of months had by the prime minister, and then we will look at the special holiday weekend coming up and what it means to a couple of curmudgeon’s with their own community radio show. But there are some politicians that don’t take the summer off, or they at least don’t take July off. We’ll host another one of the Royal City’s representatives on this week’s show. Continue reading
