Since everyone seems to have the right of freedom of speech, Guelph seems to be the black sheep in it all. Marc Black the owner of a business called
Hempire happens to be on a street that has been under construction for 5 years, with the amount of business lost, Marc decided to email a bunch of the
council and workers of the city a comparison of city workers to the Three Stooges, however the city is suing him for it as they claim it is libel and
slander. It kinda reminds me of when the city was going to sue protesters for $5 million for being on some land slated for development. The city never
used to do this sort of thing by suing people left right and center, but the businesses on Carden are planning on suing the city for lost business.
Yep, I have an update the city backed off the shop owner as other businesses started supporting him, apparently the city was also going to try and sue
the newspaper for the letter Marc sent. But this is all too true with the bully tactics Guelph uses, a friend of mine sucessfully sued the city,
however someone who was working for the city threattened him, but my friend won, and he is telling newspapers around Canada how much the city workers
have lied and people getting paid off by the city to lie to a judge etc.
But some merchants have been bullied while other times other merchants things have been running just fine with communication.
yea, but this council can't accept constructive criticism, I am surprised people don't protest the actions of the administration in the city, but
the thing is if those protests turn violent, the downtown is small, lots of bars, and it could cause a lot of trouble for both the local government,
and the shop owners.
