Open Sources Show Notes for September 17, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the roof is on fire, and so is everything else. Yes, we will tackle the implications of the wildfires spreading across the U.S. west coast, and we will consider the successful gambit of the returning champion Progressive Conservative Party in New Brunswick. After those two issues, we will have another remote chat with our Member of Parliament about federal concerns on the local level. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for September 17, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for April 16, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to do the same thing we do every week, try and take over the world talk about COVID-19. It’s not going away anytime soon, and the pandemic news continues to unfold quickly, so we will once again try and fold it up in a tightly wound 25-minute package. In the second half of the show, we’re going talk to our Member of Parliament about the ongoing Federal response. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for April 16, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 24, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re taking a break after our marathon five-hour live show on Election Night (and if you missed what happened, you can find all five hours on the CFRU archive, or the abridged version on the Guelph Politicast). So this episode is going to be what the kids used to call a “rerun,” but it has a specific purpose because we’re going to recap the recent appearances of Guelph’s once and future Member of Parliament. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 24, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 17, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we have to say goodbye to the 2019 Federal Election as an ongoing story. With five days to go before Election Day, we will welcome the last of our local candidates in the form of Liberal Lloyd Longfield, and then we’ll look back at the election issues we’ve missed, and then we’ll look ahead to how they might affect the final vote. Oh, and read to the very end to found out the best way you should spend Election Night. (Hint: it’s not watching CBC!) Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 17, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 2, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we take a mid-spring break. Does that sound weird? Too bad, we’re doing! Maybe we’re heading to Ottawa to see the Storm in the final round of the OHL playoffs. Maybe we’re heading south to campaign for “Uncle” Joe Biden. Maybe we’re workshopping our puppet musical about the life of Nikola Tesla. In any event, we’re replaying our most recent interviews with the MP and MPP of the riding of Guelph. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 2, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 4, 2019

It’s a new month, but it’s business as usual in news on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph. Most of that is thanks to Ottawa, and the never-ending scandal about that one Montreal engineering firm and the politicians trying to cover for it, but there is new news out there. In one small island in Canada, they may be flirting with an entirely new type of government, but will they seal the deal? So there’s that, and we’ll try and get some insight at the intersection of Federal and local with Guelph’s Member of Parliament. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 4, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 16, 2018

Open Sources Guelph is going Omarosa-free this week! There’s more than enough stuff in the world to be concerned about without a fight between a game show host and a game show contestant even if they are, paradoxically, the President of the United States and a former presidential advisor. Instead, we will look to the rising tide of racism and hate, and the friction between labour and management at Canada’s biggest summer fair. Oh, and we’ll have some guy named “Lloyd” on the show too.
