Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 23, 2017

milo-yiannopoulos

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will ponder a week a week without Trump, or at least we’ll try to. It’s hard to separate the larger-than-life current POTUS from just about any discussion about the news, but we’ve heard your cries for relief and we’ll try and give it to you… In the second half of the show. First, we’ll talk about how White House policy is making people run for the border, and not in a delightful Taco Bell way, and then we’ll look at how alt-right darling Milo Yiannopoulos finally went too far. After the break, it’s all about electoral reform Guelph-style, and why the NDP can’t seem to shake the Mulcair-effect, even if they want to. Continue reading

How did Canada do on Refugee Numbers by the End of 2015?

syrian-refugees-20151223

During the Federal Election, the Liberals and Justin Trudeau promised that they would bring 25,000 refugees fleeing from the conflict against ISIS in Syria and Iraq to Canada before the end of 2015. Although the Liberal government made immediate and significant strides to start bringing people here once they were in office, it quickly became a much bigger prospect than it looked on the campaign trail.

Almost two weeks after the attacks in Paris, things seem to be unraveling all the more in terms of the world’s tenuous geopolitical situation. This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll do our small part to offer insight and analysis on these perilous circumstances, and the consequences of the ongoing war, like refugees. Meanwhile in Canada, the domestic picture is not so rosy with money issues and the return of a name whom in no small way had a huge impact on the outcome of the election. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 19, 2015

paris_attack

In a strange turn of fate, the year on Open Sources Guelph began with an attack on Paris, and as the year winds down, Paris has come under attack again. As the news has buckled under the weight of changing developments, we will also take a look at two homegrown developments, whether a serial killer has the right to sell awful conspiracy/spy fiction, and the struggle for the Royal City to balance the books once again.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 27, 2015

“Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job.” The faint praise of a middling bureaucrat in the wake of a tremendous humanitarian disaster still haunts us 10 years later on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. In a bizarre bit of timing, we consider another burgeoning humanitarian crisis, this time in Europe with thousands of refugees trying to escape the chaos of Middle East conflicts. All that, plus the Ashley Madison hacks, and (naturally) all the latest campaign news form the meat of this week’s show. Continue reading
