Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 14, 2017

We’re quickly approaching the end of the year and the holiday season here at Open Sources Guelph, and that means this will sadly be our last live show of 2017. We never thought we’d get to the end of 2017, but we did, and we’re relieved. So before diving into our annual political movie picks and awards, we’ll look at the recent election. No, not that election, the one that happened in Canada this week. We’ll also talk about a new guaranteed income plan in Canada, the results of the Guelph City Council debate on the hydro merger, and the year in Guelph politics. Continue reading

In the United States, they too are a but hungover from an election, but they still have a little over a year to go till theirs is over.

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?
