We’re back! After a surprisingly brief two-week vacation, Open Sources Guelph is back on the air with an all-new episode, and we’re ready to hang with you through to this fall’s Federal Election and beyond. That will be our first topic on our first episode back as we look at the moves of the federal party leaders ahead of the writ. We’ll also talk about the mysterious end of a high-profile sexual predator, the seriousness of provincial separation (in the west end), and the latest from the tension-filled situation in Hong Kong.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to get election ready! The Federal Election is just a few weeks away, so we’ll check on the status of some of the major parties, plus talk in-depth about one party’s very particular move that made headlines locally and nationally. And on top of all that, we’ll welcome another member of Guelph’s City Council to the studio for another substantive chat about local issues.

This week on Open Sources Guelph we go where the people are, and they are all over the place. Officials from cities across Ontario and the provincial government met in Ottawa for AMO, and we’ll talk about how that went. Also, the federal Conservatives are meeting in Halifax, and that’s just getting started. In the second half of the show, we’ll talk about the environment, matters of heatwaves and plastic taxes.
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.

In order to reaffirm that there’s a world of politics beyond whatever zaniness that comes out of the Twitter feed of the President of the United States, this week’s Open Sources Guelph is proudly Trump-Free. So what will we talk about instead? Well, there are two federal leadership races in progress here in Canada, and the left-wing one has finally decided to make it an actual election by having more than one guy throw his hat into the ring. Then, in the back half of the show, we’ll look at the growing trend of hate here in Canada, one form that the government’s getting blowback for trying to do something about, and another that the government is considering taking action on.

We’re going into the first long weekend of the summer, but that doesn’t mean that we’re slowing down on Open Sources Guelph. This week’s show will tackle issues of leadership, and issues of justice; the complexities of hosting a party when your own house is on fire, and the complexities of local energy strategies. Before letting it all hang out on the patio, we’re going to cram it all back into our thinking caps as we deal with another busy week in politics, and political issues.
