Guy Jones, 1949-2021


Sadly Guy passed away on December 29, 2021. He was the founding member of the Alternative Resolution Group, and a beloved and well-respected mediator/arbitrator in the city of Toronto. We will miss his intelligence, sense of humour, unique style and humble personality as we navigate the next chapter without him.
