About the Blog

I blog about the many great things this city is up to as well as my perspectives on local issues.

My musings are my own and do not necessarily represent the official position of the City of Guelph or Guelph City Council.

I moderate comments (sorry) to filter out spam (what a waste of humanity) and trolls (ditto).  I believe in the Golden Rule – treat others in the way you would like to be treated.

Be brave.  Tell us who you are.  Enough with the silly fake names like grumpy_citizen. Let’s build trust by being accountable for our comments.  We live in a society where we are free to participate in our democratic process without fear of retaliation.  Let’s defend that right by using it and remember – we can “disagree without being disagreeable”.

Important:  Posted comments will not become part of the official public record on a matter before Council. If you want a voice in local decision making, please email the clerk@guelph.ca with your comments.  If you have a particular concern or question that you would like me to assist with, you can send an email  to mayor@guelph.ca or call my office at 519-837-5643.

I am the primary author of the blog but every now and then you will see a post or comment from my Communications Assistant.
