CORNWALL Ontario –  Social media is part of the fabric of life and society now.   On July 17th Cornwall River King owner and Conservative Real Estate agent Brock Frost, who also is a candidate for council in Cornwall, took a low swipe at Mike Duffy who had not been convicted, but only charged with 31 offences.

That of course engaged the public and the president of his booster club, Mike Crowder, decided to pipe in which led  to our story.

It turns out that Mr. Crowder was fired for revealing personal information about Mr. Duffy.  It’s not clear yet whether Mr. Crowder posted his comments, and others,  while on duty at the hospital or not?

crowder quote july 18th 2014

Mr. Crowder alleged in his lawsuit against this writer that our story led to his termination.

Of course this case will be aggressively defended, and Mr. Crowder held accountable for a frivolous lawsuit.

Mr. Crowder also participated in a local facebook group that was started by the same founder after its predecessor was taken down for hate symbols.

The current group is considered by many to be a hate group filled with cyber bullying and criminal harassment.

Mr. Frost has since removed the thread from Facebook.  He did not respond to a request for comment.

Hospitals don’t fire people for no reason. Mr. Crowder revealed info on a patient. So, the hospital did their investigation and found he should be fired. Why he’s trying to pin his firing on you is beyond comprehension.

When you work in a hospital one of the very first things that they tell you whether you are a paid employee or a volunteer is that you do not say anything that goes on or who is in the hospital. I was a volunteer back in the mid 60’s till 1970 and I had to keep quiet about what went on or who was in there. I agree fully about Duffy and all the rest of the crooks and I am boiling about all of them but we cannot say anything in the hospital because of being brought up… Read more »

Sorry but I find this whole story rather confusing?

What is the lead and or where is the info on what is about and why it is written??

Hugger, most places can fire someone for merely being someone, even unions have lost their umph on that….

The Ottawa Hospital has rightfully very strict confidentiality protocols like ALL health care institutions . As evidenced those policies are enforced and Mr.Crowder was found guilty of violating the confidentiality policy. So as I understand this; Mr.Crowder violated the Hospitals policy on confidentiality (of which he agreed to comply with as conditions of employment) and the Ottawa Hospital was informed of this direct violation and he feels that Jamie should be held accountable by lawsuit for Mr.Crowder’s actions and loss of employment? As a Registered Nurse at the Ottawa Hospital I have access to patient information and there is very… Read more »

Sounds to me that Mr. Crowder is possibly his own worst enemy. Some individuals like to point the finger rather than accept responsibility. That is not human nature but rather a unfortunate flaw or absence of character. As I mentioned in a previous comment the dilemma for those that use social media is that hitting delete does not erase history.

Christopher Cameron….do you really think Mr. Crowder will do this? I don’t he would, he’d have to admit he’s wrong. He should drop his case against Jamie, but that isn’t going to happen either.

Hugger1,
Yes, that would mean he would admit fault of his actions.
Sadly it seems he would prefer to blame others for his own actions and default on accountability.

I would think that Mr. Duffy would have recourse for breach of privacy. Mr. Crowder should prepare all his credentials and facts in light of a possible multi-thousand of dollar law suit by Mr. Duffy, claiming slander of character.

Diddlysquatt is right I think that Mr.Crowder may by this action created an opportunity for Mr.Duffy’s retribution ,and well that fish is much bigger ….good luck with that Mr.Crowder …Jamie is small fish compared to Mr.Duffy …have fun with that…you reap what you sow.

Those people on that site sure do have a focus. Or as much focus as retarded drunk Stormontian people can have. Losing his job was just stupid. He has no case, countersue hard.

I think Mike Duffy has bigger things to worry about than Mike Crowder.

Jamie I know you were trying to be fair saying a local editor was no longer part of the xFlies but after reading cornwall free speech page..which he still lists on his facebook page…its the same group of haters on both sites.
Free speech only goes so far as this local man(MC) has found out. He joins a growing list of people who have lost jobs over facebook posts

Can someone in the know inform me what the privacy breach actually was? Outside of personal opinion. Had he disclosed that Mr.Duffy had cancer or was dying then yes I would get the issue of broken privacy. My understanding is the hospital already prior to his comments had mentioned Mr. Duffy was a patient at the hospital. So what information was given other then his own personal view of Mr. Duffy? I’m not on anyone’s side before I get bashed. Just want to know if I’m missing something here

Paul Thomas…..Mike Crowder revealed that Mike Duffy was a patient at the UOHI. It was a breach of patient confidentiality, even if Mike Duffy’s wife said the same thing.

Jamie I meant people all over the world have lost jobs for facebook posts. If MC hadn’t posted on Facebook he would still have his job. Now he has unwanted 15 min of fame as Postmedia story has gone across Canada.
ps
When your in hospital at your weakest you don’t need anybody saying anything about you being there without permission from chief of staff to lowest staff member

It doesn’t matter if Duffy was at the hospital having a second dose of trough slop or having his appendix out or dying of starvation or whatever it may be nobody is allowed to know who is in the hospital even your own relatives. The only way that they are allowed is if the patient contacts them or the doctor or someone high up to disclose that the patient is there or if they croaked or whatever it may be. Those of us who were volunteers at the lowest end of the totum pole was not allowed to reveal anything… Read more »

Ottawa Citizen posts a correction on JC story somebody must have objected to some small wording or something
“Note: an earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the data Crowder was placed on administrative leave and fired.”
