Open Sources (Ep. #382) Show Notes for June 23, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we consider change. Out of Toronto there was a report about policing that proved the worst case scenario, but will those numbers make a distance? Also, might this be the last session of the Canadian government led by the current prime minister? Some people think it’s possible. In the back half? We will work through some change of our own by talking to some local Indigenous voices. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #382) Show Notes for June 23, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #370) Show Notes for March 24, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, there’s war, peace and optimism. The war part is obvious, it’s another week of death and despair in Ukraine, and still with now end in sight. In peace news though, two major Federal parties have reached a deal to govern for the next few years if they can figure out how to make it world. Optimism? Well, we have a candidate who hopes he will be Guelph’s next Member of Provincial Parliament. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #370) Show Notes for March 24, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #366) Show Notes for February 24, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re in search of peace. There’s some of that in Ottawa now, but it’s by no means a guarantee that it’s going to last, which is why we’re dedicating the first half to the show to the Freedom Convoy fallout. Elsewhere, we’re looking at Schrödinger’s war in Ukraine, plus the unofficial kick-off of the 2022 Ontario Provincial Election (though it’s really just the start of the new legislative session). Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #366) Show Notes for February 24, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #365) Show Notes for February 17, 2022

This week, Open Sources Guelph is going back to the convoy. Brace yourselves. A lot has changed since we last talked about the politics of these anti-mandate protests, and all levels of government have given us a lot to chew on these last few days. So there’s that, plus we will talk about the hate and scorn cast against the Canadian media. For the second half of the show, Mike Schreiner’s back just as you knew he would be. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #365) Show Notes for February 17, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #363) Show Notes for February 3, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re occupying the airwaves starting at 5 pm, but we promise to give them up at 6 pm. Unlike some people, we know how to not wear out our welcome, but we also known Nazis are bad. We’re going to talk about you-know-what in Ottawa, and the surprisingly fast and destructive effect on the Conservative Party, plus we’ll have an interview with a provincial party leader. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #363) Show Notes for February 3, 2022”

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”
