It is a very shortsighted idea to sell off any part of Hydro One.

I wish to respond to the letter “More Risks for Cyclist” from the July 30 Tribune.
Current council was elected to decide what’s best for Guelph
It appears there will at least be some sort of debate about whether the St. George’s Square redesign. And that’s a good thing.
An Uber dilemma lands in Guelph
The dog days of summer are upon us. Traditionally a time when life slows down for various municipal councils, boards and committees; meeting dates disappear as city officials head to the cottage.
