Cornwall ON – Pierre Bourque asked the question this morning.
What the devil’s going on with Tory MP Lauzon?
Well that’s a very good question. The video clip connected to the story sums up most of it.
This stems from a post made on the Standard Free Holders Website in a story announcing my candidacy as Green Party Candidate for SD&SG.
Now politics being politics it was very disturbing especially because the more you scream you’re innocent the more guilty you look in situations like this. So I contacted Mr. Lauzon who sits on the board of this Habitat Chapter along with his wife, and many of his friends, and asked for a letter to repudiate the obvious slander.
Mr. Lauzon refused as a board member,but Mr. Brian Schofield who was acting chair, and according to the current website for the Habitat affiliate is still on their board, sent the following to the Standard Freeholder and myself.
“Good Afternoon. Mr. Gilcig approached me concerning the attached quote that appeared in your paper or on your website. I was the acting chairperson for Habitat for Humanity during the time that Mr. Gilcig was employed there, and while there were some differences of opinion there was never any question of theft or misuse of funds on his part. Please understand that I am a Conservative and in no way support the Greens political point of view, but I take a very dim view of those who would put forth false accusations to endeavor to tarnish a persons reputation.
Mr. Lauzon still refused to repudiate the slander and of course you see the video from Labour Day at Lamoureux Parc in Cornwall Ontario.
It clearly shows that Mr. Lauzon knew about the video and refused to repudiate the slander. Only Mr. Lauzon can answer to his further comments about me not being able to contact him except via the Minister of Justice or what the Minister of Justice would have to do with any of this.
Of course people may also now ask why he, his wife, and close friends and associates are on this Habitat for Humanity board? Who owned the building and sold it to the affiliate? Who holds the mortgage? Who owns the adjacent highway fronting property?
