Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 16, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s about all the unanswered questions. Will another scandal permanently sink the Liberals chances for re-election? Which political party will disappointed progressives find more appealing in the election? Will Doug Ford ever run out of scandals? And is there an election somewhere that might be bigger and stranger than anything going on in Canada? Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 18, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to give ourselves a bit of a beak before the long weekend. Instead of our usual panorama of new and breaking news from the past week, we’re going to have a series of interviews on this edition of the show. We’ll hear from our own Member of Provincial Parliament, a man who wants to the Member of Parliament for a nearby riding, and a leader in organized labour for Ontario workers, and they all have something to say. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 7, 2019

This week, Open Sources Guelph will give up cynicism for Lent. Just kidding! We might as well give up breathing!! So considering that, we’ll spend this week talking about the end of the Liberal Party of Canada, and the death knell of the New Democrats. Good thing we didn’t give up hyperbole for Lent either. In any event, we’ll welcome back an old friend from Ward 2 to talk about the budget, and all the latest issues from City Hall. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 20, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph, things go a little topsy-turvy. The one member of the team that usually goes out and gets the political interview, was too busy to do it this week. Then, at the other end of the show, we cross a little into End Credits territory by talking about the rare intersection of pop culture and politics. In between though, we’ve got juicy stuff about addressing Canada’s racist past, and its trading future.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 9, 2017

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.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 17, 2016

We’re pleased to take a break from the live-feed of the Washington circus this week on Open Sources Guelph to deal with more present matters here in Canada. Yes, there are plenty of leadership-related predicaments here in the Great White North, and they need to be given some air time too. For instance, did you know that no one’s running for the federal NDP leadership yet? Meanwhile, things are getting a little off the rails in the Federal and Alberta Conservative leadership campaigns, and if you’re a journalist in Montreal, you better check your phone, because your phone might be listening to you.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 28, 2016

After taking a week off, we have a lot of politics to catch up on with this week’s Open Sources Guelph. First, we’ll go to Philly where history was made as the first woman to win a major party nomination accepted with the trepidation of some in her party. It was serious stuff, the kind of stuff that make you want to take a trip to the circus. The Republicans threw one last week in honour of coronating their 2016 nominee, the orange-coloured ego man. Hopefully, this is something that will not be repeated next year when the Federal Conservatives and NDP choose a leader here in Canada. Speaking of circuses, the Canadian senate is hoping to go back to relative anonymity now that its members have all been cleared of criminal charges. It would be a crime to miss this week’s episode.  Continue reading
