Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 10, 2018

Enjoy our last burst of punditry for a while, because next week on Open Sources Guelph it’s going to be all about the candidates. Before all that though, we’re going to be talking about the Ontario election in a broader sense by catching up with the leaders, and then we will look west where the Alberta Conservatives are counting down to their own change election. Also, we’ll talk about the new anti-hate organization that’s arisen from the response to the Toronto Van attack and other incidents of extremism here in Canada, and we’ll finish off with something a little… mellow.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 3, 2018

It’s all a waiting game on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. That writ is going to drop any minute now and we’re going to be in full-blown provincial election mode, but until then we’re going to have to stay tuned and see what everyone else is up to while they’re waiting. Maybe they can look at issues of poverty. We’re certainly going to do that, and we’re going to talk about the future of the most famous face on Ontario’s public broadcaster. All that, plus a special guest in terms of a provincial party leader that’s looking for an upset. (And his initials are not M.S.) Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 3, 2018”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 22, 2018

It’s another journey around the world on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph. Obviously, we start out in Ontario where Premier Kathleen Wynne tried to reset the clock, not to mention the agenda. Meanwhile, in Ottawa, the new NDP leader is dealing with his first big controversy, but will he have time to reset the clock before his next election? Speaking of elections, Putin won his, and Trump couldn’t be happier! And, to wrap up, we’ll talk about Canada putting a toe back into peacekeeping.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 22, 2018”

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 January 25, 2018”

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. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 2, 2017”

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 September 15, 2016”

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.
