Open Sources Show Notes for December 10, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got a full slate of the issues that aren’t getting a lot of attention these days. In the first half, we’ll talk about the action to undermine provincial conservation authorities, and the lack of action on homelessness in places across Canada.

Open Sources Show Notes for November 19, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Plague, Death, War, and Spite. One of those may not be an actual Horseman, put it is a fairly succinct description of the current occupant of the White House who is letting Plague and Death run unchecked.

That’s just one of the topics we’ll explore on this week’s show along with matters of inquiry in Nova Scotia, the latest attack against a free press, and the messed up labour market being created by Amazon, and its “trillionaire” CEO.

Does the leader of the Liberal Party have any better answers than the ones coming out of the government? And where in the world is Kim Jong Un? We’re going to do some investigating, or rather, as much investigating as we can in quarantine. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for April 30, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for March 12, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s time to look at Ontario politics again. We’ve got a new Liberal leader to talk about, and while the current Ontario government’s definitely got 99 problems, Steven Del Duca is definitely one.
