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 25, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we learn again that elections have consequences. Here in Canada, we’ll look at the consequences of two very big provincial elections at either end of the country, and here in Ontario we’ll again look at what happens when you elect a party with no costed platform. But hey, it could be worse. The head of your government might be an unindicted co-conspirator who may only not be in jail right now because he’s President of the United States! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 11, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we look to the future. Not the type of future with jetpacks and stuff, but the more immediate future about the 2019 Federal Election. Specifically, are we doing enough to tackle the creeping alt-right, not to mention foreign influencers looking to peddle? Back in the present, we’ll look at the new Ontario government’s first budget, and the doings south of the border at the other southern border. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 21, 2019

Open Sources Guelph came on the air with a discussion of extremism back in 2015, and it’s been kind of a recurring theme ever since. This week, extremism hits New Zealand and we’ll talk about the implications, as well as the implications for Canada’s own growing hate movements. On the lighter side, we’ll also talk about the newly revealed Federal budget, and the latest follies from Queen’s Park. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 14, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we play catch-up, and man, there is a lot of news out there, so we have to take our hour this week and cover all points. We’re going to start in Ottawa where the SNC Lavalin affair has gone on simmer, but there are other controversies. Then it’s off to Ontario and Alberta to look at the provincial political situation. And the last stop, of course, is Washington D.C. where things got very litigious for the President’s former friends. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 28, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll be ping-ponging between matters at home and abroad. In Canada, the leader of the NDP will finally be back in the Commons after winning one of three contentious by-elections, and in Ontario, controversies continue to pile up for the provincial government. Meanwhile, in Vietnam, two world leaders are meeting to accomplish something, while “something” seems to be exactly what we got from the Vatican’s meeting on sex abuse last week. Yay! More good news!! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 21, 2019

We’re back! After taking a week off to help CFRU mark Black History Month, Open Sources Guelph returns with more stories than you can shake a stick at. So let’s start shaking! We will metaphorically march on Queen’s Park, as everyone seems to be doing, since everyone seems to have a beef with the provincial government these days. Next, we’ll go to the Federal government, where they’re certainly not immune from scandal. Speaking of immunity, there’s not much of it anymore thanks to Anti-vaxxers. And speaking of contagions, we’ll say goodbye to a dream called “HQ2” because of creeping socialism. Continue reading
