Open Sources (Ep. #350) Show Notes for November 4, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we think globally and act locally. We will talk about that gathering of world leaders in Scotland trying to solve climate change, or at least that’s what they say, and closer to home, the Canadian government is still taking Indigenous people to court. In terms of acting locally, we will talk to the head of Guelph Campaign School about running for something next year. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #350) Show Notes for November 4, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #336) Show Notes for July 22, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got leadership issues. We’ll head to Manitoba where the effort to right the ship on Indigenous affairs blew up spectacularly on live TV (see above), and then we’ll go to the Federal level where there’s actually some good news for one beleaguered national leader. In the back half, we welcome, perhaps, our most prestigious guest yet, Ontario’s Official Opposition leader! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #336) Show Notes for July 22, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #333) Show Notes for July 1, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the holiday is a work day. By a matter of cosmic coincidence, and some slight mathematical adjustments authorized by Pope Gregory XIII in the 16th century, this week’s show is on Canada Day, and our focus is on the original Canadians. We’re discussing residential schools, Canada Day, and we’ll have an interview with three local Indigenous people about challenging all that. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #333) Show Notes for July 1, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #330) Show Notes for June 10, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we tackle complexity. Even though everybody apparently agrees that we need more action on Indigenous issues, there hasn’t been much, and then we will have a personal health moment to talk about all our vaccine options. Then, we fill focus on simpler things, like the friction between the government and teachers, with the head of one of the province’s four teachers’ unions. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #330) Show Notes for June 10, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #329) Show Notes for June 3, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re at the anger stage of grief. The anger is directed at our bloody, complex past and the discovery of more crimes against Canada’s Indigenous peoples, but it’s also directed at some politicians in the United States who want to forget the recent past. After working through our grief, we will talk to Ontario’s Liberal leader, and the fight he’s getting ready for one year from today! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #329) Show Notes for June 3, 2021”

Open Sources Show Notes for July 2, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the Canada Day long weekend is five days long, and we’ve got to work! On the plus side (?) there’s so much work to do, and so many stories to cover. Considering the holiday, we will look at the issue of our beloved prime ministerial statues, and how the current PM is making it rain for his friends. After the break, we’ll look at the latest foreign policy controversy for the White House and the political question of mandatory masks. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for July 2, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 5, 2018

This week’s episode of Open Sources Guelph is a chorus of abuse. The Government of Ontario is abusing deficit spending by making some big spending promises. The Pope is trying to avoid having to apologize for the abuses of his Church on Canada’s First Nations people. A U.S. broadcaster is abusing the trust of the people by reaching for fake news talking points. And animal abuse activists are taking out their frustrations with a Toronto restaurant. This one’s going hurt… Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday April 5, 2018”
