AP-GOP-2016-Trump.1

So that happened. No matter where you reside on the political spectrum, watching the drama unfold Tuesday night had you on the edge of your seat as an intrepid, trail-blazing woman tried to hold her own against a consortium of powerful men had you mesmerized… But enough about the Agent Carter finale! This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll eagerly take up the American political discussion again, and mix in the promised dissection of last week’s Ontario Budget.

We said we’d never go there, but they tasked us. They tasked us! So on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, we’ll open with discussion of the trial of Jian Ghomeshi, and how just about no one involved, including the media covering it, will come out looking good. We will also dig into the complexities of affordable housing in Guelph, the greater complexities of the war against ISIS, and the curiosities of the U.S. Presidential race. 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 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
