Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 25, 2018

It’s scandal, murder, and diplomacy this week on Open Sources Guelph, or as we call it, breakfast! We can handle a lot on this show, and on this episode we’ve got a plateful. In Ontario, a former staffer of the former premier is guilty of putting electronic evidence in the electronic trash! In Toronto, the serial killer that wasn’t targeting a vulnerable group in the city, was, and has been arrested. In North America, the free trade deal that might be working fine may about to come to an end. And speaking of endings, we talk about the breaking news about the Ontario PC team. For a weekend anyway. And it might shutdown again… Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 2, 2017

The state of Open Sources Guelph this week is strong. We will be dealing bigly with the latest developments of the Trump administration south of the border, including a speech to the joint session of Congress where the President sounded – gasp! – presidential. Meanwhile in our own backyard, things are not looking too rosy for the Ontario Liberals, but can they turn it around in the next year? Then, in the second half of the show, we’ll talk about being the best activist you can be with a very special guest, and we’ll then look into the ugly face of rising of hatred across all borders.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 15, 2016

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we are finally going to get the media and political class back for all the awful lies they’ve spread about us. Oh wait, sorry, that’s Doug Ford’s script. Here on the show, we do the good work of trying to bring fair, well-researched and humorous political punditry to your radio airwaves, and this week is no exception. From the leadership race no one wants to lead, to the leadership at Queen’s Park that can’t decide where to lead next. From great expectations about Guelph’s budget to dwindling expectations about the presidential race south of the border, we’re going to do our best to bring you the truth… folks. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 16, 2016

It’s been another one of those weeks. A week that reminds just how bad the bad guys can be and how even a night of dancing and frivolity can turn into an unprecedented bloodbath. On Open Sources Guelph this week, we will understandably try and tackle the terrorist attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL, site of what is now the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States. In more political concerns, we’ll talk about how the last two years have been going for the government of Kathleen Wynne here in Ontario, and how our local MPP got a new job in cabinet. Then, we’ll continue with part three of our twelve part series interviewing a member of Guelph’s City Council, who this time hails from Ward 5. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 14, 2016

blacklivesmatterTO

In a rare all-Canada centric edition of Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to cover both political maneuvering and deep-seeded social issues. Of the former, we’ll bookend the show with discussion about the sacrificial ouster of Tom Mulcair from NDP leadership, and the multi-level struggle of governments to get their fundraising in line. Meanwhile, on either side of the break, we’ll deal with the touchy subjects of Black Lives Matter and a new ongoing emergency in an area of Canada that’s synonymous with “ongoing emergency.” Continue reading

AP-GOP-2016-Trump.1

So that happened. No matter where you reside on the political spectrum, watching the drama unfold Tuesday night had you on the edge of your seat as an intrepid, trail-blazing woman tried to hold her own against a consortium of powerful men had you mesmerized… But enough about the Agent Carter finale! This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll eagerly take up the American political discussion again, and mix in the promised dissection of last week’s Ontario Budget. We’ll also talk about the latest developments in Syria, and take a time trip to Guelph’s General Hospital to look at an emergency room emergency situation. Continue reading

Careful With That Knife, Kathleen

Everyone becomes a little bit socialist in a Canadian hospital emergency ward. I don’t know of a single incident of someone spending time in The Emerge who said “please let me pay for this” at the end of it. Those that have the means generally don’t settle for regular care but if a Lamborghini has collided with a Corolla and everyone is bloodied and unconscious, they all end up in the closest ER regardless. That is the key concept of our universal system; we are hopefully all given the same degree of quality care and you will not be billed whether you are of the one percent or homeless. There is usually a fee for the ambulance and a shake down to pay for parking but the service itself is mostly free, for now. If you want to keep it that way, you will need to fight for it at…
