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."

Responsibility skirted
I have to say I heartily agree with Cam Guthrie’s words on Ms. Farbridge's "apology" (Tribune, July 17).

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.

Bus system on brink
Editorial: It has been a rough couple of years for Guelph Transit drivers and riders alike.
Lessons about sharing lost at Market Square

Guest Editorial: Making Guelph a Better Place
In every community, the arts play an important role in strengthening community pride, increasing our enjoyment of public spaces, contributing to economic vitality, and improving community well-being.
Call before you dig great in theory but . . .
Dear Editor: I was both amused and annoyed when I read the recent plea from city hall asking that we don’t start excavations on our property without first calling to make sure we know where all the gas, water and phone lines are located (Tribune, July 1).

Short, long-term thinking key to the future of Guelph
Dear Editor: Peter Zess (Tribune letters, June 30) lauds common sense, citing some recent issues. I feel Guelph has also benefited from a rarer sense – the wisdom to balance short- and long-term thinking.
