This week on Open Sources Guelph, we go election crazy by dedicating three-quarters of the show to the Federal Election, which you may or may not know is going on right now. In fact, the 2021 Federal Election is officially half-over now, so let’s talk about the events to far, the latest news about Ontario’s vaccine passport program, and then we’ll welcome our special guest from the newly re-named Animal Protection Party!

Open Sources (Ep. #334) Show Notes for July 8, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we bring you some good news and some bad news. We start with bad news and more signs of the growing climate catastrophe, but there is some good news on the Indigenous file after weeks of basically terrible news. However, to end the show, we go back to the bad in U.S. politics where alternate realities continue to collide half-a-year after everything should have changed.

Open Sources (Ep. #322) Show Notes for April 15, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we have really mastered the art of covering politics virtually. We start the show with the latest news from the third wave of the pandemic, and then pivot to the online-only policy conventions for two of the major Federal parties from last weekend. After that, we will be joined by another member of Guelph City Council thanks to the power of Zoom. Who is it? Let’s find out!

Open Sources Show Notes for November 19, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Plague, Death, War, and Spite. One of those may not be an actual Horseman, put it is a fairly succinct description of the current occupant of the White House who is letting Plague and Death run unchecked. Things aren’t much better plague-wise speaking here in Ontario, or in the rest of Canada, and that’s where War comes in. He’s got his own room in Alberta and everything!

Open Sources Show Notes for October 22, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to get into a realm of law and politics you’ve long demanded we visit: fishing rights! We will head out to the east coast for that big story on Indigenous rights, and then we will look at the recently renewed fracas over the WE scandal. Then, in the second half of the show, we will talk to an old friend and former colleague about the COVID-age at Guelph City Council. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 22, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for September 24, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s a jam-packed news week, and there’s a lot of ground to cover. In Ottawa, the government is trying to avoid an election, but the truth is that everybody wants to avoid an election because the number of COVID cases are going up at alarming rates again. And speaking of elections, a new wrench was thrown into the U.S. Election, and since that looks like its so much fun, the Premier of B.C. seems to have decided he’d like to see an election too. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for September 24, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for August 20, 2020

This week there’s a surprising amount of news for the middle of August on Open Sources Guelph. There’s election news out of the United States, but more surprisingly, there’s election news out of Canada as one of the Atlantic provinces is going to polls. Will there be a Federal election in Canada? Not for a month thanks to some shadiness by Justin Trudeau, which might be the name of a book published by Rebel Media, which we will also talk about.
