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.

Of course, Pride highlighted some concerns of its own, and that’s something else we’ll dig into this week. But that’s not the end of the excitement! Along with the news this week, we’ll welcome back to the show Guelph’s next Member of Provincial Parliament, who, as you might have heard, made some history.
