Open Sources Show Notes for November 7, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it seems like we’re all about endings and separations. We’ve got a growing number of people out west eager to start their own country, we’ve got a Federal party leader leaving her job behind, and we have the U.K. holding an election to decided if they’re really leaving the E.U. this time. On the other hand, it looks like transit expansion might be starting in Toronto, and, if there’s time, we’ll consider the question why someone thinks that Ben Mulroney is the savior of the Conservative Party.

[Inset evil laugh.] Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 31, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 5, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re all like “When are you going to call an election, Justin!” But seriously, folks, there’s lots of serious stuff to discuss. The battle between the NDP and Green Party for the hearts and minds of Canadian progressives just got hotter, the legal battle over the carbon tax marches on in spite of common sense, everything about Donald Trump battles for our attention, and the Brexit situation in the U.K. has somehow managed to become a bigger battle.
