Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 28, 2017

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

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 31, 2017

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.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 3, 2017

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

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 29, 2017

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

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 6, 2017

It’s another week on Open Sources Guelph, and there’s a lot of Canadian political news to get to. First, a couple of exclusives! We’ll have a first hand account of the the latest Conservative leadership debate this past weekend, plus an interview with one of the people running for the NDP leadership race (albeit the topic is a very specific issue). In the back half of the show, we’ll talk about changing the rules of the game in the House of Commons and why everybody’s so mad about all the money other people are making. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 16, 2017

After weeks of waiting and handwringing, the time has finally come on Open Sources Guelph to deal with something you’ve been on the edge of your seat expecting: the arrival of first politician interview from  outside Guelph. Kitchener-Waterloo MPP Catherine Fife will be our special guest this week, the first of what we hope will be many sitting MPs and MPPs from the immediate area to join us on the show. We’ll also talk about that other hotly anticipated meet-up, the one between the King of Selfies and the Reality TV president, and then things will get serious about the future of Guelph Hydro.  Continue reading

From Spannerbook: Parkamania

Spannerbook

Justin Trudeau is on another barn-stormy, petrol sucking national tour, popping up this past week in The North with a “Justin” branded parka that has just enough fur trim to appease the seal hunters yet not enough for the soft PETA types to scream murder outright. The ship of state sails on, straight down the centre in the ever consistent Liberal way – tacking starboard so that that Bay Street is not displeased yet occasionally veering to port to soothe the conscience of the glowing hearts of his amorphous middle class voters. He probably thought Iqaluit was far enough away from anyone who might want to keep harping on about the unceremonious ditching of electoral reform but even the Parka Plebs will not let it go. 

justin-parka-2The electoral reform promise may have been flushed but it’s still swirling around in the bowl. Justin is running out of rhetorical tricks and…
