This week on Open Sources Guelph we have a very good relationship with Russia. Just kidding! Unlike the U.S. President in a press conference, there will be no butt kissing of the Russian Republic, and it’s not so benevolent dictator here. Once we get these shocking developments on the international stage out of the way, we’re going all-Canadian with news from Ottawa, British Columbia, and Guelph.

This week’s Open Sources Guelph is sandwiched by change, with violence and sadness in the middle. On the outside, we’ve got a new government in Ontario that’s been sworn in and been making changes, along with a new government in Mexico that’s hoping for the same. On the inside, we’ll look at another mass shooting event in America, this time against reporters, and those allegations against our feminist PM that just won’t go away. Continue reading
It’s back to normal this week on Open Sources Guelph! While the election (one election) is over and done with, there’s still a lot to dissect after Thursday’s vote, and we will dissect all those details on multiple levels be they local, regional and provincial. And since the election has forced us to take a break from U.S. stuff for a while, we’ll check back in with our orange friend south of the border, who has now started mixing it up with Justin Trudeau, and just before he tried to see if he can make a new friend in North Korea.

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
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.

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
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
