Toronto: Hundreds of Sikhs gathered at a ceremony for the start of construction of a new Gurudwara in Guelph city, Ontario. “The ceremony marked the beginning of a building process that starts now (Monday) and should take about nine months to complete,” Guelph Mercury newspaper quoted Ravi Rai, spokesperson for the Guelph Sikh Society, as saying. “The estimated cost of the building is seven million Canadian dollars (US $5.3 million),” he added. Rai said 200,000 Canadian dollars (US $150,000) were raised over the weekend while hundreds of thousands of dollars had been donated by devotees previously. About 5.1 million Canadian dollars (US $3.8 million) in loans have been secured.
