Guelphspeaks’ recipe to return competency to municipal government


Most people in the city are aware of the pickled soup that represents our municipal governance.

As a public service here is a recipe for getting the soup out of the pickle we are in.


Take a handful of reality

Add dollop or two for truthfulness – for taste

Stir in a big chunk of transparency

A cup of alum to suck up the mistakes, false statements and misjudgment of public understanding

Pump in 99 gallons of fresh air to open the secret and closed-door council meetings

Add a Thesaurus to parse the words used to obfuscate the truth

Provide a set of jumper cables to ignite citizens to realize how our city has been hijacked by the Left masquerading as progressives

Shake, not stir a new Chief Financial Officer who will not knuckle under  Mayor Farbridge and her controlling gang of eight on council

Fill every council meeting with citizens eating pizza and ice cream  displaying protest signs – “We won’t take it any longer”

Set paying taxes aside if the rate of increase is greater than the rate of  inflation

Beat downtown bar and club owners to control drinking and violent behaviour

Whisk a quart of curry to persuade the university to open its licensed  establishments on weekends, or municipal permits will not be approved


Stir vigorously and expect major change in the way our city is being managed

    Makes total sense to me and will probably work too.
