Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 26, 2018

The warmer weather has ushered in a very political news week on Open Sources Guelph. We’ll catch-up with the latest in local political news, and the latest from the Federal Liberals who are acting like an election’s coming. Circumstances also demand that we revisit Trump World on today’s show, while another set of circumstances demand we revisit the growing influence of the alt-right.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 1, 2018

This week is a Canadian affair on Open Sources Guelph. There’s a lot of stuff going on at the federal level, not the least of which is the announcement of the budget, but there’s also still a lot to unpack, and not just luggage, from the PM’s recent Southeast Asian excursion. After that, we’ll talk about our own Conservative leader following in the example of the conservative leader south of the border, and why we’re mad at the major media providers this week.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 1, 2018

Oh man, we’ve got some issues this week on Open Sources Guelph, and men is the biggest one. In the first half of the show, we’ll talk about the ongoing issues of sexual harassment and assault allegations, which have now found their way to being exposed in Canadian politics and media. And yes, we’ll talk about how one of Toronto’s favourite* sons has now ingratiated himself in the drama. In the back half, we’ll discuss the latest about the pending Russian election, and we’ll look back at two tragedies from a year ago that have become largely forgotten. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 18, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got Canadian problems. This will not be an easy one to parse, because these are complicated situations and complicated issues. For instance, what do you do when the system for paying federal employees seems practically unable to work right? What can be done about the persistent allegations of harassment on a Canadian university campus? How should we respond to a made up hate crime? And is it time to give our Indigenous people veto power in lawmaking? It’s a conundrum heavy show to be sure.  Continue reading

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 14, 2017

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

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 7, 2017

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
