Open Sources (Ep. #352) Show Notes for November 18, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to talk about the disturbing state of politics. On the environment, the world’s major climate action conference had only minor action. South of the border, it looks likely that a kid who shot people will get off Scott free while a rightwing troublemaker looks like he might be finally paying the price. Before all that though, look, we have a picture of bipartisan co-operation in 2021! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #352) Show Notes for November 18, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #350) Show Notes for November 4, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we think globally and act locally. We will talk about that gathering of world leaders in Scotland trying to solve climate change, or at least that’s what they say, and closer to home, the Canadian government is still taking Indigenous people to court. In terms of acting locally, we will talk to the head of Guelph Campaign School about running for something next year. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #350) Show Notes for November 4, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #345) Show Notes for September 30, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we thought we were done with Federal politics for at least a week, but the news doesn’t care about our own bright ideas. In the last week, we’ve seen the sudden and surprising end to the saga of the Two Michaels, and the sudden and not-so-surprising end of Annamie Paul’s Green Party leadership. In the back half of the show, we go back to 1 Carden Street to talk about Guelph stuff! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #345) Show Notes for September 30, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #344) Show Notes for September 23, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we still have a lot to say about the 2021 Federal Election. We will dedicate the first half of the show to talking about all the election news we didn’t cover on Monday night, and what the results mean going forward. In the second half of the show, we will talk about the return of a certain Alberta Premier to the national stage, and the latest from a certain angry Florida retiree.

Open Sources (Ep. #341) Show Notes for September 2, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we go election crazy by dedicating three-quarters of the show to the Federal Election, which you may or may not know is going on right now. In fact, the 2021 Federal Election is officially half-over now, so let’s talk about the events to far, the latest news about Ontario’s vaccine passport program, and then we’ll welcome our special guest from the newly re-named Animal Protection Party! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #341) Show Notes for September 2, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #334) Show Notes for July 8, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we bring you some good news and some bad news. We start with bad news and more signs of the growing climate catastrophe, but there is some good news on the Indigenous file after weeks of basically terrible news. However, to end the show, we go back to the bad in U.S. politics where alternate realities continue to collide half-a-year after everything should have changed. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #334) Show Notes for July 8, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #322) Show Notes for April 15, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we have really mastered the art of covering politics virtually. We start the show with the latest news from the third wave of the pandemic, and then pivot to the online-only policy conventions for two of the major Federal parties from last weekend. After that, we will be joined by another member of Guelph City Council thanks to the power of Zoom. Who is it? Let’s find out! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #322) Show Notes for April 15, 2021”
