Guelph is not Toronto

I recently received a robocall from Councillor Cam Guthrie. His simplistic take on taxes is tailored to appeal to people who are only focused on paying less, much like the supporters of Rob Ford in Toronto.
Surely we can expect more from our councillors than this made-in-Guelph, Ford Nation pitch for our vote!

      Yea but at least he will be able to manage the city a lot better than Farbridge. Besides I look forward to Farbridge losing the election as the slander and lies that guelphcitizen and 59 Carden Street are posting will be in vain.

    Well taxes in Guelph are high enough as it is, thanks to Farbridges tax and spend policy, people voted her in and look where it got us, a city that got sued for $19 million, a mayor who doesn’t respect the tax payer, doesn’t have a open or transparent government, has the mercury and guelphcitizen post lies 84% tax base for residents, highest tax rate in Ontario, failed to get a new main branch library built, failed to get a parking garage downtown built, bike lanes where they aren’t needed, stripping peoples rights with anti-nuissance bylaws, can’t get the bin system right for condos, service shutdown days in June and July 2010, a transit strike (the drivers wanted to work but the city being what it is never wanted to listen to them), Reids suing the city for $2 million, failure to attract businesses to the city to lower the residential tax base. No commercial development in the east end, failure to take accountability and shifting blame, a traffic circle in St. Georges Square which I am uncertain if it will work or not. High vacancy rate downtown, had to buy River Run and GSEC because they couldn’t stand on their own.

    The list goes on.

      I also forgot Farbridge is guilty of making Guelph like Toronto as well with all her so called revival of the downtown.
