This week on Open Sources Guelph things get serious. Well, they're pretty serious every week, but it's not every week that we're talking about a foreign government allegedly killing a Canadian citizen on Canadian soil. And to think we were going to start this week with talk of grocery prices... So there's that, plus we'll talk about the seasonal return of COVID-19 and in local news, we will turn to one of our city councillors about some of the latest doings at 1 Carden Street.
This Thursday, September 21, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
Modi Operandi. It wasn't the bombshell we were expecting as the fall session of Parliament opened. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the June killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a Sikh Khalistani separatist in Surrey, was connected to the Indian government. The announcement helped explain the seemingly frosty relations between Trudeau and Narendra Modi a couple of weeks ago at the G20. But how will this impact Indo-Canada relations, and the India's broader role in world affairs?
Face/Cough. It's cold and flu season again, and you should probably add RSV and COVID-19 to that cadre. It's probably safe to say that COVID-19 never left us, but now we're feeling it's embrace again, especially after Dr. Theresa Tam did a media conference while wearing a mask. As we start fall, the number of COVID cases is definitely going up, the last boosters are on the wain, and nobody's wearing a mask anymore. Are we ready for the next wave?
Eastbound and Downer. Last week at Guelph City Council, they had a big meeting about housing and the gaps in social services. The desperation of the housing situation in Guelph is apparent, but the solutions seem a lot harder to find. We're going talk about that this week with Councillor Cathy Downer, who's also going to talk to us about the fights to protect heritage, next week's debate about parking minimums downtown, and, just in time for Homecoming, we will cover some town and gown matters too.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
