Wither thou goest I may or may not follow.

Kudos

Kudos to the Guelph fire fighters who fought the Gummer fire and thought of both the past and the future, by avoiding water-blast damage to the stone work.

Douglas street has been closed to traffic but pedestrians can still use the other sidewalk, protected from potential wall-fall by fencing.

Kudos also to the Downtown Board, aka staff boss Audrey Jamal and her trusty sidekick Downtown Lynn and board president Cornerstone Mark who are going out of their way on a holiday weekend to help those businesses that were burnt-out but who need to get up and running ASAP. The downtown business community is getting some genuine leadership and those effected will probably be hanging shingles back up around downtown early next week.
