Open Sources (Ep. #374) Show Notes for April 21, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got rights! In the second half of the show we will celebrate 40 years of having rights thanks to Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and we’ll talk about that guy picture above who thinks he’s the Free Speech man with a plan. For the first half though, we’ve still got a war in Ukraine to talk about, and there are still questions about a massacre closer to home.

Open Sources (Ep. #353) Show Notes for November 25, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re looking cross country, and mostly about environmental stuff. We will head back to British Columbia where talk about Truth and Reconciliation has hit the proverbial fan again, and speaking of things hitting the fan, WE is back in the news too. For the back half of the show, we welcome back our local MPP to talk about the Ontario government’s very bad week on the environment file.

Open Sources Show Notes for October 15, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got some leftovers to dig through on our post-Thanksgiving show. COVID is back, not that it ever really left, but things are getting more dangerous as the colder weather arrives. In other leftovers, we’re got “Blue Lives Matter” making a comeback, more news about the American election, and a surprising update about the battle against online hate. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 15, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for June 25, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to take a break from the ongoing stories that have so pre-occupied us these last few weeks to revisit some golden oldies. We’ve got Canada-China relations, we’ve got some Donald Trump stuff, and we’ve got the Conservative leadership race for a well-rounded news diet. On top of that, we’ll discuss some good old fashioned investigative reporting. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for June 25, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for May 21, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph we start with dessert. The Premier of Ontario hasn’t told us to eat cake, but he showed us how to make one, which could be just as bad as the other thing once austerity sets in. 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. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for May 21, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for April 23, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get a break from non-stop COVID-19 coverage so that we might talk about other tragedies. We’re going to dedicate some time on this week’s show to talk about the ongoing tragic state of affairs on the East Coast, and then we will talk about the ongoing – could be – tragic state of affairs in the U.S. with some fairly silly protests. We’ll have all that to talk about, plus an interview with the Downtown’s chief advocate too! Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for April 23, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 4, 2015

truth-reconciliation

It’s a very busy week full of very serious issues here on Open Sources Guelph. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission came back with a scathing report and a to-do list a mile long for the government, but will they listen? Peter MacKay is leaving politics, but is he gone for good? A class action lawsuit’s been brought against the RCMP, is this the new battleground of sex discrimination? And the Patriot Act is gone, but is the Freedom Act better (or less ironic)? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this week’s show.
