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.
