Fireworks over Richmond Drive as Cornwall City Council lets Stormont off the Hook and delays Truck Ban – Cornwall Ontario – November 9, 2009

Fireworks over Richmond Drive as Cornwall City Council lets Stormont off the Hook and delays Truck Ban – Cornwall Ontario – November 9, 2009

wyattdog Mr. Wyatt Walsh was not a happy camper last night as he watched Cornwall City Council delay a truck ban they had given 60 days notice that they’d implement.

It was a good night for Mayor Bob Kilger to be away.   Councilor Andre Rivette sat in as mayor and presided over a very animated session.  andre Residents filled the Council chamber to capacity with Mayor McGillis having to stand in an outer doorway.

Issues raised by many of the residents included excess speed by trucks, which some claimed the life of a dog recently.  It was suggested that this time it was a dog, but that there have been close calls with children and pedestrians.

There were also allegations of threats and abuse towards some of the residents that have been visibly in favor of the truck ban.   Jake or Air brakes being used in front of certain homes causing back flaps of trucks to clang loudly, and drivers shouting abuse as people walked the road.

The fireworks came after the decision by council to delay implementation of the truck ban to go over several options.   Mr. Walsh had an altercation with Mayor McGillis and made heated statements to the effect that he’s going to issue suit to resolve the issue if the city insists on not banning trucks from the road.

He claims that information is being withheld and even suggested “the fix” was in.   We should have video by tomorrow.

Jackie Brazeau of Atchison Road wants the ban to remain in place.   She sited noise as her biggest concern.

It was also suggested that opposed to what has been written that many of the houses on Richmond road were there prior to the Quarries.

Kayla Smy, 16 stated: “I wouldn’t drive that fast and I’m a teenager!”   Mr. Wyatt was quoted “I have not talked to anybody that wants the trucks on that road” in reference to residents who have complained.

Mayor McGillis and members of the quarry team refused comment for this story.

Wyatt Walsh wants the truth.   We will be adding video as it becomes available.
