CORNWALL Ontario – Stephen Fournier, Closed Meeting investigator for the City of Cornwall Ontario has confirmed that the Mayor and two veteran councilors allowed a meeting of the Waterfront Committee to move in camera wrongly.
The details of the report will be released by City Hall shortly; but it the core issue is why would politician’s follow rules if they know that there are no penalties?
Mr. Fournier has no ability to penalize or punish a municipality for violating the rules.
Mayor Kilger actually threw committee chair Lee Cassidy under the bus when giving another media outlet a comment suggesting that committee members needed more “training” however the video clearly shows the chair asking for advice prior to moving in camera; advice that the Mayor nor Councilor Glen Grant or Denis Carr offered.
We will be updating this story once the full report has been tendered to us.
