Open Sources (Ep. #368) Show Notes for March 10, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re flying the yellow and blue. We’re heading back to Ukraine to talk about the latest war developments and the refugee crisis, and we’re going to talk about the local response with the head of Guelph’s Ukrainian Catholic Church. Down at Queen’s Park meanwhile, it was a week of saying a pre-election “goodbye” to some our favourite and least-favourite MPPs.

Open Sources (Ep. #367) Show Notes for March 3, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s a lot of bad news. Internationally circumstances force us to go back to Ukraine where the war still rages and shows no sign of stopping. More locally, we go back to Nova Scotia to talk about the inquiry into one of Canada’s worst crimes, if not *the* worst crime. In more positive news, we will happily welcome another one of our local upcoming provincial election candidates to the show. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #367) Show Notes for March 3, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #366) Show Notes for February 24, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re in search of peace. There’s some of that in Ottawa now, but it’s by no means a guarantee that it’s going to last, which is why we’re dedicating the first half to the show to the Freedom Convoy fallout. Elsewhere, we’re looking at Schrödinger’s war in Ukraine, plus the unofficial kick-off of the 2022 Ontario Provincial Election (though it’s really just the start of the new legislative session). Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #366) Show Notes for February 24, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #362) Show Notes for January 27, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re talking about international matters, and then we will bring things back to the local. First, we will look abroad at a pair of growing crises in Ukraine and Afghanistan and the fallout of a future war and a past one respectively. In the back half of the show, we will have an interview with one of Guelph’s Ward 2 city councillors about the month that’s passed and the year that’s ahead. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #362) Show Notes for January 27, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #359) Show Notes for January 6, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back after a holiday break. Did we miss anything? I know, we’ll tell you. Let’s see, we took a sudden U-turn back to lockdown this week in Ontario, but we did make some some progress on Truth and Reconciliation. On the other hand, it’s the first anniversary of that time a bunch of people tried to overthrow America for a game show host, and has anyone heard from Putin lately? Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #359) Show Notes for January 6, 2022”

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 July 4, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, everyone loves a parade. This could be a reference to the Fourth of July sideshow that Trump is putting on today, but it could just as easily be a reference to his parade of embarrassments and scandals in the last week alone. Along with that, we’ll talk about the protests in Hong Kong, the politics of cartooning, and a Supreme Court case that should have a positive effect on victims of rape seeking justice in Canada.
