CFN – After a hard hitting near half hour discussing the merits of different pigeons that are causing issues in Cornwall; apparently going back to when Councilor Syd Gardiner apparently lost a lung to pigeon issues.
Eventually the conversation led to the presentation of the Waterfront Committee’s
fact filled report on the Waterfront Committee’s report about the public consultation. The one that had little leaguers protesting the city’s plan to fill a city park with Condos.
Fast forward to the 8 minute or so mark to see a parent really nail the point.
Councilor Thibault caught lying .
My email to City Hall about the cost of the exercise to taxpayers was not responded to today. That would include prepping for the public consultation; the cost of the day itself, and the extensive cost of the online portion and report.
In the end the results were skewed by as much as 7% which could be why City Hall decided to bury it after Greg Kielec’s report of a few week’s ago. A meeting attended by Mayor Kilger himself. A report in spite of the obvious failure of the process the Waterfront committee not only voted to send to council; but agreed to present tonight only to be pulled back. What happened in these few weeks for Cornwall to yank its report?
Cornwall has this little thing where if a committee member misses three meetings without cause they are removed from the committee. Mr. Dubuc & Councilor Thibault have now both missed more than three consecutive meetings. Again City Hall has not answered as to their current designation or if they are still part of the Waterfront committee.
And then there is the issue that people were able to vote multiple times online including after the cut off date which of course is another reason for the report to be killed as it was.
However we have a Waterfront Committee that endorsed a failed report with Mayor Kilger sitting at the table. Surely if there was ever a reason to fold a committee this should be it? Surely this committee has shown itself to be an utter failure and sham?
The big question though is WHO WANTED CONDOS IN LAMOUREUX PARK? Who put brains like Roy Perkins to the task?
And is this now being shifted to the new Streetscape plan via the cryptic Heart of the City/Centreville project that now has multiple committees supporting it even though you have many of the same people on those committees… And the councilor to motion the $12M Streetscape project? Heart of the City poobah, Denis Carr. If that isn’t gross conflict of interest what is? And while it may be up to an individual to state Conflict of interest surely those around the table are not dumb, retarded, and corrupt, no?
It all kinda smells worse than Goose Pooping Day in the Park. I mean; if the public wants development they should be consulted properly and get to vote on it. These snake in the dark loosey goosey stuff with people like Denis “Liar” Thibault surely has to stop?
Well my fellow Cornwallites? What do you think of this mess? Should this Waterfront Committee be disbanded until after the next election? Should Lamoureux Park go condo?
They want the waterfront to be like Brockville’s!
Well again, maybe people in Cornwall do want a hot sexy waterfront like “Brock Vegas” has that has revitalized its downtown core. Maybe it’s time for the people of Cornwall to properly be consulted and for it to be an election issue in two years or so?
