CORNWALL Ontario – The buzz around City Hall via the Chem Tanks is that shortly Economic Development head Mark Boileau will be shifted out into Stephen Alexander’s gig, and that Bob “Vienna Sausage” Peters will take over the department.
Now of course this is rumour and speculation; but it sadly is almost believable based on how the Kilger council operates. With Transport Canada and the Mayor admitting that the department was contacted in February and June 2013 and they refusing to answer why those communications never made it to open council it kinda looks stinky.
After all, City Hall still has not dealt with Mr. Peters working on the mayor’s campaign last term while on City Time when Mr. Peters submitted and discussed the mayor’s campaign banner with CFN during office hours.
And what better way to reward someone’s silence and black ops than a promotion? It’s how it’s done at Cornwall City Hall, right? The not so deft selling out of our waterfront by the Kilger council is embarrassing; a corrupt government doling out a favour in the last year of its mandate.
In my opinion there should be no management promotions at City Hall until there is a new duly elected council.
Frankly City Hall needs to come clean on the tank fiasco and Council needs to ask next Tuesday in open council through the mayor the basic question.
Why didn’t Economic Development notify council about the Trillium communications?
Then again maybe they did and there is a deeper and darker answer to that question that voters may never learn the truth of?
The real negative of the Chem tanks won’t be their appearance, but the impact of having freighters pull up across from the condos and the impact of all those trucks on Montreal Road, and streets, and who will pick up the tab of repairing those roads from the heavy trucks? You dear CFN viewers.
Remember that come election time or when you’re stuck in single lane traffic sucking diesel fumes.
