CORNWALL Ontario – Should all or some of the members of the Cornwall Ontario police board have to resign due to the upcoming Municipal elections?
Mayor Kilger sits on the board as a “Citizen Representative” and his campaign manager Pat Finucan is the chair. Cornwall Councilor Andre Rivette is running for council again, and also sits on the board.
Mr. Finucan, who tried to earn the Liberal provincial nomination and failed also endorsed Mayor Kilger in videos during the last municipal election. Both have deep ties to Queen’s Park.
Mr. Finucan has stated that he didn’t feel there was any issue that should warrant him stepping down.
Compounding the situation are police charges against this writer that the crown is refusing to drop in spite of a production order clearly showing that charges in the disclosure stating that alleged threatening phone calls made from my phone did not in fact occur at all.
And to most reasonable people if the calls did not occur as alleged then anything supposedly stated during them, never occurred.
The disclosure states that calls made from my number at a specific time and duration occurred; but the phone records clearly show that this did not occur. There are in fact phone “spoofing” services that can mimic numbers.
Several law enforcement agencies, off the record, thought it quite bewildering that any charges of this sort would be laid without verifying that the calls occurred from my phone in this situation.
Crown Jennifer Burke was removed from my case, but the new crown still is refusing to drop the charges in spite of the clear proof that I did not make the calls as alleged.
The irony of the situation is that I am living under legal conditions all this time while the party that made the allegations can publicly issue statements whereas I cannot even share what happened as it may identify them.
My life has been impacted now over half of one year since the February 10th charges that were immediately released to the the media via the police blotter.
Complicating this of course is that Mayor Kilger and I are both running for mayor.
Is this justice or simply dirty politics?
