It has been brought to my attention that Coun. Leanne Piper did declare a ”pecuniary interest with regards to OMB Hearing -716 Gordon Street by virtue of her employment with the University of Guelph. And did not discuss or vote on the matter.”  The confusion arose from a newspaper report that the council meeting was unanimous in challenging the application by Abode Varsity Living to build two towers for student housing on the site of the Best Western Motel. Guelphspeaks regrets this error and continues its policy to make every effort to correct mistakes.

    A simple Google search would have gave you that information, this clearly shows that this blog is entirely based on your opinion and not actual fact. Another example would be your comment that the University is the largest employer in Guelph (which it is not). Your credibility is dropping pretty quickly, no wonder the Merc fired you.

    • Stge: Thanks for the kind words. At least I put my name on what I write. The blog is a commentary on events concerning our city. As for my credibility, you got that wrong. More and more folks are following the blog and commenting, just like you.

    We enjoyed your opinions in the Mercury and missed you when you were gone. Now we look forward to this blog to see the other side of the coin so to speak. There is to much one sided opinion in our newspapers. You are a breath of fresh air.
