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

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

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…

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 26, 2017

So some staff happened this week. Too much stuff for a single episode of Open Sources Guelph, but since we only do one episode a week, that’s all you’ll get. So here’s what’s going down: a week full of American zaniness, the Canadian reaction on two key fronts, and some very serious talk about a year in First Nations affairs. We’ll try and decode all the official and unofficial things coming out of the White House, the fallout of how Donald Trump’s new direction affects Canada, and we’ll wrap up with an update about Aboriginal matters with our resident expert on Aboriginal issues.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 19, 2017

justin-trudeau-town-hall

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we enjoy the last few hours of the Obama era, which we may recognize in the years to come as the Age of Reason. Well, we have reason to be concerned, as do the thousands of people making their way to Washington this weekend to protest the incoming president and we’ve got one of them on the show. We’ll also talk about the problems with our own country’s leader, the problems with trying to lead another country out of a lucrative alliance, and we’ll mark the end of one of the worst abuses of judiciary power of the last 10 years.  Continue reading
