CFN –   It’s been a rough year for Cornwall Ontario City Councilor Denis Thibault.   The long time Liberal mover, shaker, and friend of the legendary Ed Lumley has actually countered council recently over the  sham exercise of having a public consultation this deep into the failed Kilger mandate.

Word at the last Waterfront Committee meeting was that he had resigned.    He had never recovered from the brutal waterfront public consultation that saw his dream of 2,000 waterfront condo’s sink under the weight of picketing Little Leaguers.

Mr. Thibault also was caught lying on camera.

Now word is that he may be losing his plum gig as head of the Eastern Ontario Training Board.   Mr. Thibault has not responded to our emails and it isn’t clear if this is simply may be budget strapped province making a cut or a sensitive minority Liberal government inching away from the Cornwall scandal before an upcoming election?

“From what plan have we been working for the last two-and-a-half years?” said Coun. Denis Thibault in an interview, who noted a municipal election is is just 17 months away. “To me the time for that stuff has passed.

Thibault said strategic planning sessions should be convened at the beginning of a council term, instead of in its home stretch.

“The horses have left the barn,” he said. “Going into a strategic planning (session) with a fragmented council is not necessarily going to result in a plan totally supported by the group.”

Council has worn a fair share of egg on its face this term, with one member resigning, accusations of mismanagement and whistleblower complaints.

Fragmented council?  His words, not this scribblers.   Those hardly sound like the words of someone about to rerun or perhaps even finish his term.  With age and his own health concerns some are wondering if Mr. Thibault may leave the ship before it sinks; maybe as soon as before the May 24th city court date with Deputy Fire Chief Rob Hickley?

Never did trust the man and wasn’t he a Mayor wannabe?

Fragmented council ! Finally someone speaks the truth. I believe as well that the time for strategic planning sessions have come and gone . Perhaps this will start the proverbial ball rolling and other members of council will admit the truth of their failures to adequately represent this community. Any city councilor wishing to make an early departure certainly gets my support.

Never really a big fan of his politically, but his comments regarding strategic planning, were bang-on, 100% correct ! It is way to late for this administration, to even attempt to save face with the electorate ! They are simply trying to save their collected political asses ? This feeble attempt is childish at best ? It is unfortunate & troubling, our administration is dysfunctional ?

My goodness, Councillor Thibault, when did you fall overboard? I remember when I respected all the work you did in this community and then you just seemed to go sideways to protect your Mayor and the CAO–even though you knew it was wrong. Councillor Thibault, forget party politics, and retrieve your integrity, your honesty, your natural sense of wright and wrong. Do not let this destroy what you, beforehand, had accomplished. That particular group will most definitely hang you out to dry along with the rest of Council. Have an eye.

Just read the Apple Sauce column in the Freeloader, once again not comment is allowed. It almost looks like he is pretending to be a real journalist but then he got his facts wrong again. This article asks a question and Apple Sauce read it as a statement of fact, that is if he actually read the article at all. It could be the result of that child’s game where you start a rumour and whisper it in the next person’s ear and then the next and so on and then you see how the story has transformed. Imagine now… Read more »
