CFN – Two whistleblowing cases against the city; tossing this scribbler out of council with the use of 7 police officers for not liking my t shirt and now Mayor Bob Kilger, a former NHL ref and father of a former NHL player is being fingered for the end of the Cornwall River Kings after one season! The team which never seemed to be on a concrete platform apparently is pulling the plug and moving away?
“We have no choice,” Lapierre said in a short interview, blaming the team’s relationship with the city, Mayor Bob Kilger in particular, as well as inability to co-exist with the Jr. A Cornwall Colts in the same arena.
“He’s just killing us,” Lapierre said of Kilger, but would not get into more specifics.
Lapierre added further questions will be answered during Thursday’s press conference.
The mayor said he’s waiting to get more details.
“I’m not going to react to anything until I hear from the hockey club specifically,” Kilger said.
So much for Mayor Kilger’s scoffing at the CFIB’s report on our city’s ability to nurture new business in its Community in Boom yearly.
We will be updating Thursday.
