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.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 31, 2019

Happy Halloween! We’ve got the scariest punditry you could ever imagine on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph. There’s danger and intrigue as the Federal leaders gather their thoughts after the election, there’s a bottomless well of horrors being revealed in Washington as the investigation into Trump goes deeper, and then there’s the most ghastly of all creatures, a smiling Doug Ford telling you he wants to be your friend. [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. Put your serious faces on, this is going to be a rough one. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 5, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 27, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph is no jaunty burger flipping affair. Of course, we weren’t the ones demoted from being finance minister after just one budget, but it’s hard to believe that’s a cause for celebration. We’re going to cover the upheaval at Queen’s Park last week, and speaking of disasters, we’ll revisit the Trump White House again. In the back half of the show, we’ll look at the ongoing concerns of election security, and the potentially greater threat of nuclear power (or is it a threat?). Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 27, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 13, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph we will again tackle the pressing issues of the day, and maybe have a few laughs along the way. But probably not. We’re drowning in plastic, and then there’s the drastic changes made by the Ford government, which has decided to take the next five months off having been so productive. We’ll also have a visitor in the form of one of Guelph’s 12 city councillors. Hint? She’ll be doing the interview in her home ward. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 13, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 30, 2019

Summer is here, so tune into Open Sources Guelph this week while sitting out on the patio drinking a beer. That’s the vision that the Ontario government wants you to follow up on, or perhaps the only response to this week’s news is a good stiff drink. Anyway, we’ll be talking about the latest from the Ontario government, election moves from a pair of former Liberals, and then news from Europe on the future of Brexit, and the new parliament that the continent just elected. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 30, 2019”

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 May 16, 2019”
