Questions and Comments

Question / Comment:

The Mayor's blog says 70% of jobs will remain in Guelph, but it now appears that 70 jobs will remain in Guelph, which is about 52%. The Green Energy & Technology Centre will employ about 10 people, resulting in 50 net jobs lost.

Response:

No one likes to see jobs leaving our community. Guelph Hydro employees will be treated equitably, and we hope to address as many changes as possible through retirement and voluntary separation.

The seven facts on the Mayor’s blog were posted before we negotiated the final terms of the proposed merger. The numbers released in the City’s most recent announcement are accurate.

In the long-term the Green Energy & Technology Centre could attract other businesses and create even more good jobs in Guelph.
