BREAKING – Former Cornwall Ontario Deputy Fire Chief & Whistleblower Rob Hickley Loses Motion after Justice Johnston Rules Against Him

hickleyCFN– 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.

What do you think CFN viewers; has justice been served?   You can post your comments below.

This story may end up being true but the sourcing is rather sketchy

according to a source claiming to have heard this from City Councilor Denis Thibault.

jezz
my glasses fell down Your advertising base….not year
I’m fumbling around like Pm Stevie Harper trying to put out new versions of my story
Hope the RCMP case is better than the one that saw us give pm brian mulrunney 25 million
then we find out later he was getting strange packages in the night like mayor rob ford

This is a SAD story
Whistleblowers…however noble…always get kicked in the teeth
The Brave scientist and others who revealed the Canadian Red Cross and Federal Government
rolls in the Tainted Blood Scandal were thousands upon thousands of Canadians got AIDS and Hep-C because they didn’t heat treat blood(cost about $5) ended up kicked to the curb
Meanwhile Red Cross doctor got Canadians highest paid lawyer…and walked out of court untouched
While so many others got a DEATH SENTENCE

I have always said and continue to say that there is no justice at all in Cornwall. This good man has been hurt badly just like you Jamie along with Perry Dunlop and some others. Thank God that I left Cornwall and it was the best thing that I ever did in my entire life. I feel for Mr. Hinkley as well as for the nurse as well Diane and many others who were pushed down in the dirt for their good deeds. There is no justice only “JUST US”.

Shades of Cornwall Hamilton city employee gets $25,000 after filing harrassement complaint Her Boss who ended up getting fired_for something else_ got 18 months salary worth $200,000 Not pointing fingers but doesn’t this bring up memories of a recent story from Cornwall????? Hamilton Street Railway inspector has been awarded $25,000 by a labour arbitrator because the city did not seriously investigate her complaints about sexual harassment on the job. This case highlights the legal obligation of employers to investigate sexual harassment claims in a timely and thorough way. They must also later take steps to deal with a poisoned work… Read more »

Maybe CFN could spear head a campaign to raise funds to make sure justice is served. Mr Hickley has used up his savings to prove that this city and council is corrupt..I for one will gladly start the ball rolling with a hundred dollar contribution to see that justice is served

While advance funding has been denied this does not mean that Mr. Hickley is not entitled to recovery of his legal expenses when he has successfully proven his assertions in a court of law. I remain cautiously optimistic and if advance funding is required to bring this matter before the court then I would not be opposed to a donation to a legal defense fund in his name. Being optimistic with the potential outcome any recovery of monies (donations) from the City of Cornwall (ourselves) could be either paid out to Diane Shay if she was still out of pocket… Read more »

@BIG MAC …. this non event is petering out. The RCMP investigation has provided the answers already. Exactly how many times is it necessary to ask the same questions when the information is there for all to see. Personally I would like to see the efforts of the members of the house deal with more important issues than one that has already been dealt with. Now it is up to our legal system to deal with the likes of Mac Harb et al. Hopefully justice will prevail and the taxpayer is represented fairly.

Surely you jest!!! non event
Even right wing Sun news admits that people might end up in jail for paying money to buy silence
Just like Richard Nixon our Prime Minister is going to learn the coverup is worse than the crime
Ninty percent of the PMO knew of the payoff but somehow magically Stevie the World biggest Control Freak was in the dark….even a blind man can see the truth

Well you sure gotta give Cornwall Free News credit When somebody posts a comment it stays up Strange how the same can’t be said about standard freeholder When people post negative comments the whole comment section vanishes into thin air just like their credibility Then there is the strange behavior of mr hambleton who put an free ad for supplements at the end of a story about a local weight lifter…unbelievable but then again Toronto star did pay $5,000 for a video of Mayor Ford acting the fool This despite the fact many Journalism profs say this is bad way… Read more »

Well looks like the Free Loader has done it again…All comments relating to whistleblower case vanishes after 10 postings…Obviously city hall controls this rag as well……Hopefully Mr Hickley refuses to give any more interviews with them

Believe Me
Guest

just wrong :
I would also toss in $100 along with I believe many others to help Rob Hickley continue on with his
case against injustice ( Fitz & Kilger ) re. the hiring of Kilger’s ex. Hockey Player son .
On another note Cornwall Standard Freeholder what a sick group they really are over there they are obviously
controlled by the city, money talks and they protect the City from any negative comments that are made and quickly close the site .
CFN has the guts to print negative comments if they are made .

The Freeholder is getting worse ? The mere thought, of a defence fund to help defray the legal bills for Rob Hickley, is obviously causing City Hall to burn the mid-night oil ! As some of our readers have noticed, any negative comments against the City, poof, they disappear ! What gives ? No obscenities, foul language, just negatives towards Council issues .
Anyway, when the defence fund gets rolling, I’m in !

Here are some of the comments that vanished…to save space the formatting is changed but all u have to do is REPLY TO between the names and u get the picture bella-b I wonder if the judge had found for Mr. Hickley if the Freeholder would have left the comments section open.

You can put me down for $100 dollars as well — towards Mr. Hickley’s cost in a case that exposes the corruption of our city governance.

And in the meantime if there is someone with proper experience and skill with setting up crowdfunding… this might be a worthy and successful project.

For forum moderation, CFN is much worse than the SF. At least they allow anyone to post, and only moderate after someone complains.

Here you mostly filter any comment which goes against your views and don’t even allow it to be posted.

I am screen capturing this to show I am commenting but you are refusing to post it!!!!

Those who work for the toilet paper of record SF are known as “presstitutes” and they are all monitored by the powers that be. Those are very big corporations that own the newspapers and I know who owns them since I have been into this for many long years. It takes many huge amounts of millions of dollars to make a very small paper let alone something big. Cornwall is riddled with scandal and you don’t even have to go as far as old Harpo. I laughed when someone here posted Mulroney’s name as “Mulrunney” and yes that is a… Read more »
