Bus riders left in the lurch
Dear Editor: I am a regular transit user. I am bewildered how city hall decides on a Sunday night to lock out Guelph Transit workers and suspend bus service on Monday morning.
It's not collective bargaining
Dear Editor: I am extremely disappointed with the way that Mayor Karen Farbridge, CAO Ann Pappert and the City of Guelph have vilified the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 1189 in the media for rejecting the city’s offer.

Mayor responds to Guthrie salvo "Guthrie, Furfaro and Hellemond are very irresponsible in undermining the city's position before damages have been assessed and a decision on appeal has been made. They just may have upped the bill and made an appeal more difficult. Shame."

Bus drivers locked out "Why lock them out? Why not wait for a strike or for negotiations to go somewhere? Perhaps the answer is that the city saves money as long as they are not paying their employees and the sooner the better. The employees and the riders don't matter."

An eye-opening experience
My First Hillside column by Laurie Snell: It’s not very often that in one weekend I try tightrope walking, juggling, dancing, attend multiple concerts, see a group of violinists, eat way too much food or go on a mini-hike.
The View From Here: More transit investment should be public demand

The 31st Hillside Festival, which takes place this weekend at Guelph Lake Island, is about more than music.
Lockout outrage

Chance for change
Dear editor: The announcement that Chief Bryan Larkin of the Guelph Police Service (GPS) is decamping for Waterloo presents an opportunity for a change for the better.
