Don, it would appear that you know very little about what is actually going on in Guelph. You state that you have looked at Mayor Farbridge’s claims. Exactly how have you done this? As a journalist you really should do your research before you write anything about our city, especially leading up to a municipal election. It just makes you silly. Very disappointing indeed.
