CFN– This has not been a great month for former Cornwall Ontario Deputy Fire Chief Rob Hickley. Mr. Hickle,y after claims of being forced into retirement has now discovered that he has lost his motion for the City to pay the costs of his Whistle Blowing claim against the City of Cornwall.
The allegations stem from the hiring of Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger’s son, former NHL player Chad Kilger, to the city’s fire department via the graces of former CAO Paul Fitzpatrick.
The Honorable Mr. Justice J.M. Johnston denied the motion for advance funding according to a source claiming to have heard this from City Councilor Denis Thibault.
According to another source Justice Johnston wrote that Mr. Hickley still had his own resources to use if he chose to, and that Mr. Hickley still intended to pursue litigation even if denied.
Mr. Hickley and attorney Fay Brunning had not issued comment as of press time.
