Vote recount flawed system "Alan I don't see any flaw in the counting process, though perhaps in the reasoning for a recount. All parties knew that the counting method was going to be exactly the same as last time. What did they expect to happen? Einstein said "Insanity: doin"

A loss of identity in Canada, now Guelph "I guess I have been living under a delusion in Canada all these years. I was always taught that the essence of democracy was debate and every opinion having the chance to be represented. I am seriously disturbed by the response of the followers of "

Jaywalking big problem in Guelph "There is no doubt that there are pedestrian/traffic problems in Guelph. The city has doubled since I moved here, and we all feel the growing pains in different ways. As a historical note, did you know that the term "jaywalker" was coined by the auto"

Tax system not senior-friendly
Dear Editor: I agree with the comments of Jay Kumar in regards to Guelph’s assessment system (Tribune letters, May 5)
Food trucks for thought
Food trucks are becoming something of a phenomenon in many parts of Ontario – and maybe soon in Guelph too. Established restaurants, which pay property taxes, might not be among their fans, though.
All parties should meet to resolve church debate
Dear editor: I have a question for Michael Bird, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Niagara; Dr. Franco Vaccarino, president of the University of Guelph; Guelph Mayor Cam Guthrie ; city council; HIP Developments Inc.; and the McElderry Community Association.
Declining enrolment makes plan unnecessary
Dear editor: My understanding is that Solstice means either of the two times a year when the sun is at its greatest, which to me should be exciting. The institutional-looking Solstice building at Arkell and Gordon is not exciting and will look even worse once it’s in technicolour, and yet they keep on multiplying.
Wind and ice dangers issue for consideration
Dear editor: After listening to the presentations to city council on April 13 regarding the rezoning application for the St. Matthias church property, and reading the many articles and letters in the media, I felt it was time to comment.
It will be a big day for us, too
June 6 will be a big day for Torontonians, when the UP Express starts between Union Station and Pearson airport. But it will also be a significant day for Guelph, as that’s the day it will become possible to get from our own downtown to the airport by train.
Please don’t feed birds white bread
Dear editor: Pet peeve number . . . People who feed birds bread. And right now, people who are feeding baby birds – less than a week old – white bread.
Skatepark jabs are unwarranted
Dear editor: Had Hugh Whiteley taken part in the expansive vetting process to determine the best location for a new skateboard park in Guelph (which has been ongoing since Deerpath was closed in 2009), he would not be so surprised that the Silvercreek location was chosen.
Thumbs down hits wrong targets
Dear editor: A few days has elapsed since I read a recent thumbs down criticizing loud motorcycles and pickup trucks. I was thinking my reaction to it would subside, but it hasn't.
Federal election murmurs
The volley by local political figures in today’s Trib on the merits of the tax plan unveiled last week by Liberal leader Justin Trudeau is part of an intensifying focus on the federal election expected Oct. 19.
Dog duty colouring our world
Dear editor: Guelph’s dog owners are finding creative ways to decorate their neighbourhoods using plastic bags of doggy-do.
Car sharing is the way to go
Dear editor: I am delighted to learn that city council is moving forward with a plan to support the expansion of car sharing (Tribune, May 7).
Diocese big part of problem
Dear editor: I wish to respond to Greg Elliott’s recent letter in defence of the decision by the Diocese of Niagara to sell the St. Matthias church property to HIP Developments for $2 million rather than accept a lower offer from another church congregation.
Some wrong here
It’s hard to figure out what the escalating strike action by Ontario teachers is really all about, but things are getting serious. And as usual, kids and their parents are getting caught in the middle.
Skatepark in violation of Official Plan
Dear editor: I am surprised that city council is determined to violate the planning act by constructing a large and expensive concrete replica of a city-centre plaza – the proposed skatepark structure – at Silvercreek Park where such a structure is prohibited by the Official Plan and zoning bylaw.
City hall, not diocese, makes call on development
Dear editor: There will be no uber student housing on St. Matthias church property if city hall staff recommends to protect and city council votes to retain the current existing zoning (that their official plan designated) of that property. They are the ones responsible for that decision.
