This week on Open Sources Guelph, we're not back at school but we're still looking for an education. With this episode, we're trying to get smarter about Greenbelt-gate, which had a number of big developments in the last several days, and a new mass protest based on conspiracy theories that has us worried. For the interview this week, we go to Ward 3 where one of the councillors from Guelph's north end will talk about the fall sitting of the horseshoe at City Hall.
This Thursday, September 7, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
Are You Afraid of the Clark? Things seem to fall apart pretty quickly for Steve Clark, now the former Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. But despite the damning indictment of the integrity commissioner, and the (delayed) resignation of Clark, Premier Doug Ford has affirmed that his government's decision to sell portions of the Greenbelt stands and will now be reviewed, not withdrawn. How much more punishment can the government take on this file?
The Divides of March. This year, there's been something of an alarming uptick in the number of protests, vandalism and death threats against LGBTQ groups, drag time store hour events, and other places that encourage inclusiveness. Now, it seems like the people driving these incidents are combining their efforts into something called the "1 Million March 4 Children", which will take place on September 20 across Canada. Should we be concerned that we're looking at a new Freedom Convoy?
Fallt Preview. It's not just young people getting back to a routine this week, our city council is getting back to business as usual with a very busy fall slate of meetings that will get really real next week with a meeting entirely dedicated to the housing crisis and social service delivery gaps. This week, we're joined by Ward 3 Councillor Phil Allt who's going to tell us what to expect as council tackles planning matters, the multi-year budget, and the struggle to achieve Indigenous reconciliation, and that just covers the first few weeks of September.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
