Open Sources Show Notes for March 5, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we want to focus on the nice things in life, like the crossover team-up of two young female activists, but instead there’s some grimier stuff we have to deal with, like a certain disgusting sticker that depicts one of the ladies above. We’re also going to talk about the rise in hate towards Canada’s First Nations’ people, the latest from the Democrats, and the official ballot for Canada’s own leadership race in the Opposition Party.

Open Sources Show Notes for February 27, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s more of the same hits as we look at the now expanded rail blockades, and the latest from the race to find the 46th American President. In new stuff, we’ll look at the latest test to Canada’s laws regarding sex work, and we’ll have an appropriately timed conversation with the Minister for Women (and other things).

Open Sources Show Notes for February 20, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to catch up on a couple of ongoing stories, and then look at two new ones because if it’s Thursday, that means there’s too much news to cover! So in the first half we’re going to talk about the latest on the protests supporting the Wet’suwet’an hereditary chiefs, and the escalating friction between the Ontario government and teachers.

Open Sources Show Notes for February 13, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, there’s friction. When Canadians leave home, interesting things seem to happen, which may be the least controversial thing we discuss this week. Next, things are far from cool as the debate over constructing a pipeline hits an all-new level of agitation, the contest to find a Democratic candidate is still as contentious as ever, and we’ll wrap up by talking about how we should react when controversial figures get some bad news of their own.

Open Sources Show Notes for January 9, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back to our regularly scheduled program and what a program! As we start the new decade, we’ve got one crisis seemingly averted (for now) in the Middle East, and another crisis that’s seemingly being ignored in Australia. In matters that are not crisis-like, but still pressing, we’re going to talk about the start of the Weinstein trial, and the latest on the pipeline fight in British Columbia.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 17, 2019

On Open Sources Guelph this week, we’ll continue our ongoing coverage of the slow decline of western civilization. In the U.K., Brexit comes to a full boil, and in the U.S., the Russian investigation goes back on the front burner as the President, somehow, looks dirtier. Here in Canada there’s not much more to be proud of. Justin Trudeau shuffled his cabinet, but is he really just shuffling deck chairs on a sinking ship, even while his Reconciliation dreams become a new nightmare? Oh, the pain!
