GUELPH POLITICAST #190 – Guelph Stuff (Local Election Update)

There’s an election going on. If you know this already, then you are very well-informed, but if you turn on your TV to look for pundits to tell you what they think about the local race, you will be disappointed because they’re all about the national leaders. Someone needs to fill the gap left by short-sighted mainstream media outlets. This sounds like a job for Guelph Stuff! Continue reading “GUELPH POLITICAST #190 – Guelph Stuff (Local Election Update)”

Continue reading “Burnett Tells OSG She Wants to Make a Better National Marriage Through Communism”

GUELPH POLITICAST #182 – Maxime Bernier’s Guelph Town Hall

As we count down to the start of the 2019 Federal Election, we will likely see several special guests from the various political parties come to town, including the leaders themselves. Of course, you’ll recall that at least two party leaders have already come to the Royal City, in last week’s bonus episode you heard from one, and this week, you’ll hear from another. Continue reading “GUELPH POLITICAST #182 – Maxime Bernier’s Guelph Town Hall”

GUELPH POLITICAST #164 – The Rookies (OSG Interviews)

Today, students and community groups on campuses across Ontario will go on strike to protest the Ontario government’s Student Choice Initiative, which could defund in part, or entirely, a lot of different campus clubs, services, and yes, media. One such impacted group would be CFRU, the community radio station that operates out of the University of Guelph. Continue reading “GUELPH POLITICAST #164 – The Rookies (OSG Interviews)”

Open Sources Guelph

This week, Open Sources Guelph will give up cynicism for Lent. Just kidding! We might as well give up breathing!! So considering that, we’ll spend this week talking about the end of the Liberal Party of Canada, and the death knell of the New Democrats. Good thing we didn’t give up hyperbole for Lent either. In any event, we’ll welcome back an old friend from Ward 2 to talk about the budget, and all the latest issues from City Hall.

Karl Wettstein Offers Some Final Thoughts on Council Career on Open Sources

Tonight, the 2014-18 council meets for the final time before the turnover on December 3. One of the two people that will not be on the new council is Karl Wettstein, and before departing the council chamber one last time, the outgoing Ward 6 councillor stopped by CFRU!

Before calling it a political career, Wettstein stopped by to chat with the Open Sources Guelph gang to talk about his time on council, what experiences he’s taking with him, and what lessons he hopes to leave behind. That’s in the back half of the show though, for the first half we talk about the latest troubles in the White House and Queen’s Park.

Open Sources Guelph

This week, Open Sources Guelph is awash in galling behaviour. In the United States, the President decided to skip the opportunity to remember veterans so he could pout and rage tweet in his hotel room, and in Ontario’s capital building you still never know who might be a scandal waiting to happen. It’s a bummer to be sure, and one that’s compounded this week as we say goodbye to a regular guest as he retires from the political stage.
