Cornwall Ontario – Since Denis Sabourin moved into Cornwall Ontario from Monkland there are many wondering if he’ll be taking the plunge back into the political spectrum?
While some are asking if he’d run again for MP (he fared better than Bernadette Clement did, and without a two year lead in) and some mentioning him for MPP, the vast chatter is on him running again even if his old boss while MP, Bob Kilger, somehow survives his own scandals.
Mayor Kilger besides having health problems is under fire for three whistle blowing incidents in this term alone and other lawsuits pending stemming from the actions and scandals connected to former Cornwall CAO and Ed Lumley bag man Paul Fitzpatrick.
When CFN contacted Mr. Sabourin he laughed and said since he and his wife have moved to Cornwall a large number of people have been asking him if he was going to run for office again.
The shrewd politico though refused comment when asked if he was mulling a run for office at any level as he’s busy with his new legal practice. SDG Paralegal Services. (613 360 5633)
CFN asked James Borer, President of the local Provincial Liberal riding association and he provided us with the following for publication:
“In keeping with a democratic process it is the PLA membership, whom meet the criteria to vote, who should elect the next Nominee for our riding. I support the democratic process. I also believe that people in positions of influence should not use their position to unduly influence others.”
