HOLY GILLES LATOUR!!!!!!??????? If I didn’t read this I would never have believe it. LOL LOL. Well the rich get back what they do to others. Now I bet Bare Ass is worried now. This may just be the tip of the iceberg of things to come. Hold on your seats folks and get out the popcorn and pop or beer. Things are sure getting interesting in Little Sleepy Hollow.

Well well, the clique is starting to fall and one of his partners Bob Kilger is quoted wishing this scum bag all the best, one crook to another right Bobby. How does the lime light feel now Latour, bet this is one story you wish you were not front and center too right. When will his friend Bob Peters be taken down? Everyone knows full well,{MODERATED}also. Eventually when the crap house is full, it must be emptied. Maybe now people will see what many have been saying all along. Team Cornwall is scam, a group of liars, scum bags, cheats,… Read more »

Admin….didn’t you have an article up a while back mentioning that someone big had been accused of these charges?

Everybody take a deep breath, has he been convicted of anything> He has been accused and charged but does this make him automatically guilty? The same goes for Jamie, he was accused and charged, did it mean that he is guilty, no it did not. Let’s have some objectivity here, this town dislikes the fact that anyone can do well and automatically assumes that they are crooks. God forbid that you are ever accused of committing a crime.

Team Cornwall has checked their books? …Already?

One might expect that a forensic accountant would take a bit longer, as no doubt will be the case at the Max Keeping Foundation where Gilles is a board member, and the Ontario Crafts Council where he was Chair of the Fundraising Committee.

@Captain Canuck, I respectfully disagree with you about people in this city disliking the fact that anyone can do well. All Cornwall residents cannot be lumped into one ball. It should always be rewarding to see others do good and who have our best interests at heart and those of the community. Those who don’t have missed the boat in more ways than one. It then becomes a bad reflection on self and those who reward wrong doing to others and with others. People have done well in Cornwall and will continue to do well, they have worked hard to… Read more »

Admin, I also agree with you. We do pay a very huge price for speaking out. I understand about the business community and that is a very sad reflection when that places. If one is honest/sincere and wanting to provide people with the truth, then what purpose would those certain people in the business community have to fear? Could it be that they hope for failure of others and the work you are doing? If so, they are wrong and in that aspect yes, there is something very scary about the culture of this community. That is exactly why the… Read more »

Admin, I was a small business owner in the past. As anyone knows who has a business advertising plays an important role, on both sides. Advertising is part of the business venture and I spent my advertising dollars (at that time) in more than one paper. If I still had my business I would be very pleased to advertise in your paper and know that a wealth of readers were not only being exposed to the truth, stories of local and other interest and a view into the many businesses within our community and other areas. Hopefully more people will… Read more »

I agree with everything One Who Cares said. The mayor and MOST of the city council needs to be changed. Will it be done. Hopefully Leslie O’Shaughnessy can get the job done. I hope we don’t see vote splitting between Leslie O’Shaughnessy and Jamie with Bob Kilger returned to his throne.

Admin…I agree. I’d take it one step furter. If ANY city council has things to be investigated / charged it should be by a non-resident police service. If Cornwall council wants actions of one of its own investigated it should be by another police force, not the CPS. I’m not saying it has to be the OPP, it could be by another city’s police service.

Thank you Admin! If it were possible I would take on the challenge with great pleasure and the hope of having many businesses in our community come on board with CFN as their source for getting the good word out! I will though with others I am in contact with, support CFN and if confronted as to why they don’t advertise with your paper, I will also ask then…Why not!!!

The spotlight is being shone on the cockroaches in Cornwall and see them all run in different directions that they don’t know what to do. Jamie this is what they get for what they did to you. Anybody who has done bad things to me got it back and a great deal worse than what they dished out to me and I swear that is the whole truth. Now I see what they did to you is coming back to haunt them. If you only knew how terrible a penalty that people paid for what they did to me you… Read more »

His first court appearance is Sept. 30. So his trial won’t start until after the municipal election. If he’s convicted watch how fast people distance themselves from him.

Wow!

As it was predicted, so it has been done. Least surprising news story of the year. I hope the families he represents get some of their money back.

@Admin: What would have been so much of a threat in mail that went to city hall to make it disappear? How? Who did that? Why did they do it? Many of these questions remain unanswered, at least to the public. You are correct, it was then up to council or someone to take immediate action when something like this took place. It is something that should have been investigated as per comments @Hugger 1. I absolutely agree. When this issue arose, at a later date I had met with two/three council members and asked had they received my previous… Read more »

One Who Cares…..Council members shouldn’t deny that they received correspondence. But I don’t think that’s the case. I think (& this idea has been floated before) the council’s mail was being pre-screened. By whom? There are numerous suggestions. I think that practice has probably stopped.

We’ll never know what truly happened.

I agree someone should be held accountable? BUT will it happen? I highly doubt it.

One Who Cares
Guest
Hugger 1, I agree with you. Perhaps I should not have used the word deny, but they stated they were unaware that they had received the mail pack that had been previously sent to them. Since there was one pack per council member that meant many packs then had disappeared into thin air. If their mail had been pre-screened, they still should have received what had been delivered to them in their personal name wouldn’t you think? I agree, perhaps we will never know what happened during that time period of why it happened in the first place, but I… Read more »

I agree personal mail should not be opened. However, MP’s in the House of Commons (or as my sister used to call it the House of Comics) have their mail pre-screened all the time. I think, perhaps, someone was being too zealous in their job pre-screening city council mail.

One Who Cares
Guest
Hugger !, yes, I am aware about government mail. Having been in contact for l0 years with various levels of government I know that mail is pre-screened and many times a reply comes from a staff member re: contact. The mail sent to the city council members was the same to each one and regardless if screening took place or not each council member should have received their mail. Something certainly interrupted that specific (and perhaps other) flow of mail that should have gone to every council member and the mayor. I doubt, like the many things that took place… Read more »

When the mail fraud happened no investigation was ever done and don’t forget that the Barney Fife PD fall head over heals with Bare Ass so don’t expect much from this. The same goes for Holy Gilles Latour being rich and has connections this cockroach may get off scot free just like all of them do. If that were you or I we would be blackballed and tarnished for life. One thing is that the entire community knows about Holy Gilles Latour and that alone will put a black mark on his business. The entire gang from Bare Ass and… Read more »

One Who Cares….by pre-screened I mean weeded out. There may have been orders from some of the higher ups to weed out mail regarding certain topics. It could have been done to stop council members from looking into certain topics or potential issues the higher ups didn’t want looked into by council.

Admin…that doesn’t surprise me. The letter writer was probably warned about possible consequences (whether true or not could be subject to debate) if they continued pursuing things dealing with the mayor and / or council.

One Who Cares

Hugger 1, I do agree. In fact your are probably right on target with one. There also could have been concern due to the fact that we do have elections coming up and it would not have been a topic or issue the (Mayor /council and a few others) wanted to deal with. For some as you are aware the only thing that counts is the vote and the assurance that they receive that vote. Meaning, other serious issues that could impact their vote would be of no importance to them, their position came first and not the Cornwall public!!… Read more »

The person or people who cover up for the Mayor in any way know who they are. They will always have to live with the consequences of what they did and the people they may have hurt/or harmed in some way by obeying such dictatorship. It is a frightening prospect to think we live in a community where people continue to be silenced/bullied and perhaps worse due their telling the truth. Such a pretty little community with such a tarnished reputation. This does nothing to build up our community, it only takes it further down a dark path. If we… Read more »

Like I said before this is only the beginning of finding out the dirty things going on by certain people that you put in as trust. You will all hear more as time goes on. Jamie keep your paper going because it is the only paper that tells people the truth. The other “toilet papers of record” hide the truth from the public and nothing but lies.

At the beginning of every council meeting there is an invocation by many different spiritual members from our community. For anyone who has listened, the words fill us with goodness, hope/faith and prayer for the guidance of those who represent us at that City Council meeting. How could the mayor listen, nod his head then go on with each meeting and do the things he has done to others? How could he treat some of those on council in the manner he does if he had truly heard or even understand the words that came so sincerely by those who… Read more »

@Hugger1…you seem to make the presumption that Gilles Latour will plead his innocence hence the need for a trial. It occurs to this reader that charges following a 5 month long investigation might just have merit unless the officers and crown prosecutor(s) are less than competent.

Hugger1
Guest

One Who Cares….I agree 100% with what you said in your latest comments. But we must remember who we are dealing with here. It’s hard for a leopard to change its spots, especially one who has been doing it for so long.

David Oldham….I agree. But upon reading Mr. Latour’s email to his clients I think he will be pleading not guilty. It seems that people at the top think they can pull the wool over ordinary people’s eyes and we will just look away.

One Who Cares you share the same sentiment as I do about Jamie and yes he stayed and he could have gone somewhere else with his journalism skills and he tells the people the truth and not some fairy tale that they want to hear – he tells them what is the truth.

Jules, you cannot judge the actions of some and say that all people are the same. They are not. Bad things happen to good people and many good people still live in this city. We have people in this community who do care about others, who are educated, who do have self respect and who do hope for better times ahead, as many do. Not everyone is cut from the same cloth, so to judge all by the deeds/actions of those who have been dishonest continues to be unfair to other very good people who have resided here their entire… Read more »

One Who Cares thank you for writing. Yes I am angry and that is so mighty true indeed. About good people in Cornwall yes there are plenty and the problem is that those good people are not standing up to Bare Ass and his dirty clique. Everything is swept under the carpet and they are all hoping that it will go away. Bare Ass and council are just reciting words and don’t know the meaning about prayer. When they recite example the “Our Father” that prayer goes for every Christian denomination whether Catholic or Protestant and every word in that… Read more »

You are welcome Jules and I sincerely wish you the best of luck. You are correct, in a larger city it is more difficult to get around to various places and for many it is a hardship. I am certain you miss Cornwall, the good memories you have from the days gone past. Good people never die in our hearts and you can always hold close those things that meant a lot to you then. Cornwall offers that uniqueness in size making things much easier for many to get out/access and to enjoy those places. Hopefully as Cornwall heads in… Read more »

I agree 100%. But some people refuse to let the past go. I’m not saying we have to forget what happened in Cornwall previously. But we have to try and move forward and forge a new future for Cornwall.

Hugger I agree with you that there are a lot of good people in Cornwall and that is true. What is happening is that people don’t stand up to the evil and get rid of them once and for good. The good get stomped on by the clique and Bare Ass and look at what happened lately with Latour scaming the people out of their money. The Barney Fife PD is at it again to protect the dirtbages in Cornwall. Honestly Hugger what kind of a law does this project when the rich get off doing their dirty deeds and… Read more »

Stop it JUles. It disturbs me when I agree with you. Personally I think the Latour case should have been handed to an outside police service because of his connections to Kilger.

I agree with you Hugger and I think that Latour’s case should be handed over to an outside police force. Bare Ass is not the kind of person that I ever want to see as mayor ever again. I hope that Leslie O’Shaughnessey gets in as mayor. Jamie is a mighty good man and does an excellent job with his paper and tells the truth but Leslie has political experience and knowledge on how to expose Bare Ass which is essential for Bare Ass’s defeat.

I went to high school with this guy ,was a big show off and treated woman like crap. Always remembered him that way and never understood how he could be a financial adviser. My gut was right.. {MODERATED} and needs to get oout of this business. It’s not for him.. How come there was no mention on the news about this.? Sue for 104.5 most likely begged them not to say anything about her ‘so called good friend’

Hugger I agree fully with you again. Latour’s case should be handed over to another city to handle the case. I don’t believe that Ottawa should handle it since Bare Ass is connected to Ottawa with the city and the feds. It has to be another municipality somewhere away from this area of the province.
