My wish is to hear the mayor, city councillors, residents and everybody involved enthusiastically support the idea of integrating Guelph in the Greenbelt.
Are bike lanes on Speedvale worth it?
I felt compelled to reach out and provide some input from a resident who lives on Stevenson Street North.
Speedvale not the dilemma it’s been made out to be
It sure seems like council has its hands full with the Speedvale Avenue project on the books.
Taxes to CPI push resonated with voters
As the campaign manager for Mayor Cam Guthrie during last year’s municipal election, I can attest to the fact that one of, if not the, main issues was the continual increases in property taxes under the former mayor’s leadership.
In defence of elementary school teachers

Enough is enough, teachers
Dear Ediitor: I seldom write to newspapers, seldom get politically involved, although the Draconian federal government we have presently is changing that, too.
Dog walker just obeying rules
