Protesters Hit City Hall in Cornwall Ontario Over Councilor Syd Gardiner’s Attempt to Destroy Signs – March 18, 2013

Syd Protest 1CFN – A small but spirited crowd braved the near -20 weather to protest in front of City Hall in Cornwall Ontario this morning.

Syd Anti Bullying

It was originally a protest about Councilor Syd Gardiner not being charged for trying to destroy their protest signs outside of the last city council meeting.

Those signs were only delivered to police 5 days after and the councilor was not charged with Mischief Under $5,000.

The protesters were also upset at the Kilger council whistle blowing cases and other acts of corruption.

There are also new allegations that Mayor Kilger after the last council meeting was seen joking with another alleged journalist and that  those same signs were in fact in the Mayor’s office.

I tried asking Mayor Kilger about that this morning as he was making a rare appearance in his office.

Jesse Tieman( yes, Randy’s kid!)  from The Cornwall Daily apparently had better luck speaking with the mayor and perhaps we’ll see what was said to him later.

What do you think Cornwall?   You can post your comments below.   Kudos to Cliff from Island Ink Jet who brought a pot of coffee out to the protesters!

The time to take action and make a difference is at elections. That is when our voices count. Rallies just don’t cut it………ask the LFA.

Your sadly mistaken stellabystarlight, protests between ballot days shape things and people’s views. We are so badly treated and sometimes lied to, I am surprised there are not more protests, but then again, our schools have been creating go with flow types for decades.

Networking and social media such as this is far reaching. Kudos to those who had the courage of their convictions to brave the weather and the potential intimidation you may have experienced with your brave actions. For sure these statements will be mined as well as you actions reviewed by those being challenged and by their supporters. What I see a very wrong here is the intimidation leveled at the advertisers and the potential advertisers in the past no. of months. I myself had difficulty accepting some of the wild and crazy comments and statements of CFN yet now after… Read more »

@Stella The time to take action is now not wait until October next year. This council is not waiting til then for their corruption, partisan favoritism, lying, overtaxing, and overspending on high price lawyers instead of providing services to All citizens of Cornwall. People need to know now what is going on here. I for one have no problem standing out on a cold Monday morning for the sake of Democracy and doing what is right. Hiding issues or reading coverup stories in the local rag who did not show up to this protest will not let people see whats… Read more »

Kilger is a coward and a hipocrite and can never face the people. Kilger is finished and should be thrown out as quickly as possible.

I am glad that a lot of the people are finding out the truth about this coward. Kilger will drive Cornwall into bankruptcy. Get him out as quickly as you all can possibly do so.

Hi Hailey, It appears that the turn-out was small, but we have to keep plugging away ? We will have to wait, for the Freeholder to officially give us a count ? So far, not a peep from them ? Qu’elle surprise ? One cannot argue, that the time to make our point, against this dysfunctional Council, is at the ballot box ! But, we must educate & show some of our electorate, what has been going on ! A lot of voters, have a “laisser faire” attitude, so we have to light a little fire under them ? Believe… Read more »

What was that again? Jamie makes up stories, creates situation for a story? So much criticism of Jamie for wearing a t-shirt and fighting back and so few looking at the bigger picture. I agree with Dave Windsor that these advertisers who have pulled their adds with CFN need to wake up and realize this isn’t high school any more. Take a stand and don’t let people intimidate you into doing what they want. These people are doing exactly what they accuse Jamie of doing. They just wrap it up in a nicer package and do it behind closed doors!… Read more »

The cost of litigation and higher taxation should now come out of our Progress Fund. It has to, if council does not agree to make YOU pay your own expenses for high priced lawyers. YOU SHOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR OWN, SIR, AS YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM SUGGESTING OTHERS PAY FOR THEIRS. The taxpayers have been jilted, lied too, EVADED and screwed because of YOUR nefarious activities…not on the cities behalf but solely for your own cover ups and that of others you were covering up for, or who were helping cover up your activities, SIR. Then, get out… Read more »

Diddlyscwat Bare Ass doesn’t deserve the word Sir but the word COWARD, THIEF AND LIAR AND SNAKE IN THE GRASS. He deserves no respect at all whatsoever from you or anyone.

No you cannot wait till October you have to do it now. You have to get the ball rolling and to get people ready who can run as both mayor and councel. You have to get rid of those old bats ready for the Glen Stor Dun – they are not in the 21st century but are way back in the days of serfdom. Stella you want the best for kids and so do I but kids today are going to grow up very fast because they are going to see things that hasn’t been seen since the 30’s era… Read more »

By the way Jules, the SIR was sarcasm. Your points well taken.

To actually believe this man held high office as Speaker of the House of Commons, with a grade ten education is incredible.

Obviously this was not a great feat for a man who has f-o-o-l-e-d everyone for years and years. It makes one wonder about how read this man really is.

Someone once said he was dence as a referee and couldn’t even pass his courses in ref camp.

He didn’t last long as a chicken manager either.

Diddilyscwat…Amazing that he couldn’t pass the ref courses…just like his son couldn’t pass the written examination for the fire department but yet he was still hired after H.R. bypassed many good men and women. He must be saying “THANKS DADDY”
Anybody want to bet that Kilger doesn’t show for the Monday night meeting knowing he will be met with many protesters wearing t-shirts that he so dislikes. Then again, the asshole has no pride…so he will probably be there just so he can push his little panic button again!

Jamie, I/we hope you have been getting some ‘come back’ calls for advertising. You sure deserve it.

All the best.

Diddlyscwat, did you say a grade 10 education? OMG I have grade 13 and find that low. I did a year of college in Cornwall in the secretarial and laugh at that too. I had to reread that sentence of grade 10 over and over again for it to absorb and I said is Diddlyscwat kidding or is it true. Here is that Adams woman working in the finance has university and is working in a back room somewhere and a lawyer as a councel and has university. OMG this is worse than what anybody would want to hear –… Read more »

Jamie you have at least a community college education in journalism. You know the laws of journalism. You are very good at what you do. I would say that you accomplised a great deal so be proud of your paper CFN. It will take the people of Cornwall some time to awaken to the changes that are necessary. These people are not used to change or to things that are modern or to world affairs. They have a mighty long way to go to know what is really going on.

Yes, Jamie was never taught that integrity is a flexible concept.
