Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 11, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re getting into the weeds. It’s summer, after all, and our politicians aren’t making a lot of news like they should, so let’s get into the issues. For instance, since when did protesting pipelines make you a target for our own spies? Why is everyone so angry about a movie? Why isn’t everyone more angry about the treatment of children in U.S. government custody? And what if most of us are wrong about our own thoughts on immigration here in Canada?

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 6, 2018

With episode 200 out of the way, this week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going back to the current news, and there’s a lot of news to consider. This week, we travel the world as world leaders met in Argentina in a comedy of errors called the G20. Back home, we’re still worried about oil, and in Ontario we’re worried about nepotism. We’ll then wrap up the hour with a tribute to latest member of the President’s Club to take his leave. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 6, 2018”

So some staff happened this week. Too much stuff for a single episode of Open Sources Guelph, but since we only do one episode a week, that’s all you’ll get. So here’s what’s going down: a week full of American zaniness, the Canadian reaction on two key fronts, and some very serious talk about a year in First Nations affairs. We’ll try and decode all the official and unofficial things coming out of the White House, the fallout of how Donald Trump’s new direction affects Canada, and we’ll wrap up with an update about Aboriginal matters with our resident expert on Aboriginal issues.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 26, 2017”

If last week’s show was a major bummer, we try to lighten things up on this week’s Open Sources Guelph with some news that’s a little more hopeful, or at the very least head-scratchingly unbelievable. We look ahead to the coming week as Parliament gets back down to business, and we look at the Official Opposition’s upcoming leadership race and the surprising entry into that race. In other news, relations with an old enemy have thawed a little further, while another damp chill falls over the Canadian media landscape. We said we’d try!
