CFN – In light of the footloose five who were allegedly fired by the city of Cornwall we did a little sniffing.   While the city is still under it’s own leaky Cone of Silence questions are being asked now about all staff who potentially could have “stolen time” from the city.

Should Bob Peters of Economic Development be fired for working on this banner  below and other activities during Mayor Kilger’s re-election campaign on City time?

denise kilger for mayor

Former Clerk Denise Labelle-Gelinas had this on her Facebook status.    During the election there were other allegations of City Staff acting on behalf of the mayor on City Time as well.

The city is still refusing to disclose to the public what this messy waste of tax dollars is about. They are not being accountable nor replying to emails or answering media calls in a timely fashion.

It appears that the replacements of Paul Fitzpatrick & our clerk by Norm Levac and Helen Finn may simply be a change of the face, but not a change of how things have been done.

And what of the Mayor himself?  Would someone like to check his attendance record during this and last term at committee meetings for the city?

While he recently had time to sit in on a new Waterfront condo development (on the former Domtar lands) and personally walked through with inspectors for the Truffles Burger Bar patio application (which was expedited) has the Mayor himself been giving the city value for the time he himself has spent?   Does breakfast at Napoleon’s count as time spent on the job?

Should every city paid employee or contractor be monitored?   The truth needs to come out about not only what happened to the five, but more importantly the process.   Were they arbitrarily or unfairly fired?  Were they treated differently than other staff?   The public deserve answers.

It is really no one’s business about the 5 employees, they are not elected officials, they are ordinary citizens. What took place between the employer and employee should not be open to public scrutiny. It is a private matter.

Tax payers money is a poor excuse for trying to find out what really happened. Actually, tax payers should be happy that the employer finally put a stop to it “IF IN FACT IT IS TRUE”

Because we are tax payers doesn’t give us the right to delve in to private matters.

Better late then never!!!!

Yes Bob Peters should be fired for campaigning during work time. The other employees who were fired by the city should remain fired. There is absolutely no excuse for any loafing around or doing other work than the one that is assigned to you. If you do not do your work there are thousands waiting in line for your job.

Wow Jules !!! You must be a perfect shiny worker who has never ever slacked off. We don’t know anything about those 5 employees and their job performance or personal lives. All we know is that they were terminated for theft of time. Just because we pay taxes it does not mean we get to be judge, jury and executioner.

Stella… is right on this one. As I have said, if Todd Lalonde was not one of the five, we would never even have heard about these employees–as it should be. Should Bob Peters be fired? He should never have been re-hired–nor should have been his wife. They both left the City, their positions were filled, and yet here we are with both of them being paid HUGE unjustifiable salaries. This all rests on Paul Fitzpatrick and his desire to surround himself with people who owe him. And where is he today–still laughing at the rest of us. All of… Read more »

Elzoey when you pay huge taxes and you see this craziness going on you get mighty upset and any normal person would be mighty upset. Taxes are going through the roof and every year my rent goes up a lot of money and the same for people who own (I owned a house and I know the cost and it is humoungous) and I don’t accept people to loaf around at all. I am a tough cookie when it comes to work ethic. I left jobs where there was not enough work and I got terrible headaches sitting around and… Read more »

Whoever does the next campaign will have to sharpen their PhotoShop skills… dressing up a disgraced old political goat to match that bright, tanned, and vital fabrication of the last campaign… that’s going to be a full-time job.

Bob Peters get fired?? Bob Peters should have never been re-hired period. This guy is so high on himself, it’s a fight between him and Gilles Latour to see who’s crap is browner.

I am also a thrifty sister Jules, put in a hard 40hr work week and pay high taxes. All I am saying is that we don’t know anything about those 5 people so why pick on them? They could be hard working employees that have been setup, who knows. Peace 🙂

To people the dirty 5 were the guys who answered
the phone to help u , 24 -7 . Holidays – nights – weekends.
Instead of criticizing stand behind these guys.

Guys instead of putting them down.

You have inexperience people doing this job now.

Wake up part people from the complex.

People that do not have a clue how

The city functions . Re water . Sewer . Roads .

Don’t get me wrong but some of these people

Are x Domtar employees . The city seems

To have an abundance of x Domtar employees.

WHY ?

LEAVE BOB PETERS ALONE!

NO, Not at all, he should not get fired. He has done very well for the City of Cornwall. We do not know all the facts, and if I would be running for this city, I definetely would be contacting Bob Peters for his help and knowledge. LEAVE HIM ALONE, HE IS DOING A FABOULOUS JOB.

Done the job . Not easy . It seems they were

Responsible for every department after hours.

They did a super job for what they had

As a tax a payer, I am highly interested why the fabulous five were dismissed. I am also interested why they are entitled to their jobs again after they were dismissed a few weeks ago. Weren’t they dismissed for a reason? How can a dismissal get rescinded? Are these five on leave with pay? If they are re-hired will they receive back pay? Why do some people refer to the Mayor as “bare a$$?”

I am not related to Mr. Peters at all. He is one of the nicest guys working for the city, he makes things happen, does it right, gets the job done..All I can say, is “Leave him alone”.

Somehow I thinks this Gregg guy who is posting is the same Gregg that started all this by being caught at the gym on city time. A super job for what they had to work with, wow really? Sit at home or drive around is a tough job. By far are you responsible for every department after hours, not even close to the truth.

I really think getting rid of the fab “5” was a way to discredit Todd Lalonde and make it look like part of a bigger issue. Could be that the grand pooba heard that maybe Todd was going to take a run at his the Mayors seat or even council. One way to get rid of any perceived or real competition is to discredit them. Happens in Ottawa all the time and who spent lots of time there?
What say you admin?

You are wrong!!!!!
Nope not at all. I am not a relative, I am not part of any clique at all, I don’t care for them, I am not Mr. Kilger, or Mr. Fitzpatrick, I am someone that has dealt with him at the City. Bob Peters has done very well for the City and for our community. For the third time on this subject, I recommend leaving him alone.

To the person who posted “To Jules” we will not leave Bob Peters alone at all and he should go. Cornwall has a town of complete and total corrupt people working there and it is long past due to throw all those bums out on the duffs. The vast majority of us left Cornwall many years ago knowing what was going on even way back then so can you imagine how worse things became. Well they sure did worsen. Cornwall had some of the best people in the past but now the vast majority have left and will never ever… Read more »

The first comment sums up the definition of an “AIR HEAD” and the mind set of all too many. We are not discussing a “private” company situation. WE ARE THE EMPLOYER ! IT MOST CERTAINLY IS OUR BUSINESS AND OUR RIGHT TO BE INFORMED ! This same individual believes that a Canadian should only be concerned about their own province of residence. That what goes on elsewhere in the country should not be their concern. If anyone else truly believes that what a public servant does during “tax paid time” is not of concern please feel free to direct your… Read more »

STELLABYSTARLIGHT you have a uncanny ability to demonstrate with every word that you type your inability to comprehend the simplest of information. A voter and taxpayer to a municipal government body would be comparable to a shareholder of a publicly traded company. In both instances accountability is to the taxpayer/shareholder. While outside of work hours you have certain privacy rights, during working hours an employee is fully accountable. You must know more than most, perhaps insider information? I do not know if the situation was handled properly. It is my business since I pay my share and therefore it is… Read more »

Stella David Oldman is right. Even you are the employer of those city workers. The salaries that those people receive come out of the city’s taxes. The same holds true in other provinces where we all share in the tax burden and what the senators do, the PM and his gang and even the simple little employee that I used to be was paid by your tax dollars and yes you have to care what is being done on the jobs. There was so much loafing around and I cannot get into all these matters because it is confidential but… Read more »
