Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 23, 2017

There are no easy answers on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. The year 2017 will likely go down as the one where everything changed for women in the workplace, and the allegations keep coming in against more and more powerful men, and we’ll talk about the latest on the political side of things. Also, college students are finally back at school, but the real question is what have they lost? We see again that these vaunted pipeline projects also lose, even if they win, and people in Toronto are wondering if they’ve gained something by getting rid of traffic from a key section of King Street.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 2, 2016

It’s June, and you know what that means, summer gatherings with all your friends on the weekend! Two federal political parties had that same thought last weekend, as they gathered in different parts of the country to talk shop and celebrate their victories or their loses that were really victories. We’ll talk about all the policy, gossip and gaffes that came out of the Liberal and Conservative conventions last weekend, and then dive into two serious issues that have been on the Open Sources Guelph radar for a while now.  Continue reading

That is the key concept of our universal system; we are hopefully all given the same degree of quality care and you will not be billed whether you are of the one percent or homeless. There is usually a fee for the ambulance and a shake down to pay for parking but the service itself is mostly free, for now. If you want to keep it that way, you will need to fight for it at…

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 5, 2015

After taking a week off, Open Sources Guelph is now forced to talk about Justin Trudeau again. The new Prime Minister is “Designate” no more, and he revealed his first cabinet to an excited throng of over 3,500 people at Rideau Hall yesterday. Meanwhile, the countries going to hell in a hand cart. (Thank Justin.) Ontario’s got more than 99 problems and now has two new ones. Meanwhile, buying a house in certain parts of the country is getting more and more expensive, and money maybe having too much influence at one of Canada’s universities. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 16, 2015

Since 1970, the 22nd of April has been known as a time to stop and think about our effect on the planet and all the damage we have wrought on it. It’s Earth Day, and Open Sources Guelph is choosing to celebrate (so to speak) by dedicating a whole show to issues of the environment. In the news this week we’re running out of water to drink, and air to breathe, but there are politicians actually working to try and undo some of the damage. The question is though, are we too late?
