The Guelph Mercury has been the paper of record in our community for many years. I have had complaints and differences of opinion with the editors.
This week, the paper’s editorial of the city’s response to the Ministerial letter declining to proceed with an audit, drew unusual over-the-top comments from the Chief Administration Officer and the Mayor.
But the Mercury editorial took a balanced response and quoted parts of Minister’s letter, also received by GrassRoots Guelph members.
Thanks to the Mercury editors who kept their heads. They produced a commentary that was fair and accurately reflected the intent of Minister Linda Jeffery in her letter to all parties.
She never said nor inferred that the GRG petition was a “waste of time.”
