O’Shaughnessy Stakes Ground for Mayor’s Race – Declares It Is About Kilger’s Record – Sept 21,2014

Leslie SEPT 19 2014CORNWALL Ontario – Leslie O’Shaughnessy showed a little rust.  After all it’d been over a year since he left public office; but he warmed up as the capacity crowd at the Ramada In who listened to him talk about why he resigned in protest from his role as City Councilor of Cornwall Ontario and why he’s running for mayor.

On Bob Kilger Withholding councilors email, not once, but twice and outlining Elder Abuse at Glen Stor Dun Lodge as well as a councilor being intimidated at an in camera meeting as well as not getting written reports from Paul Fitzpatrick and management.

more on the Diane Shay case.

Walking out of closed door meetings unless a staff reported included – some council members knew more than others – Cornwall did not terminate Donna Derouchie , but settled; refused to vote on issue – city changed plea to guilty over Shay with one page report – $850K spent in closed door meeting in that one page report filled with “crap” – Kilger instructions to tell public change to guilty plea over costs – tells Kilger he would state that it was because we were guilty – Kilger never stated to public that insurance would have covered if victorious in court ; no cost to city – instance of abuse at GSDL reported late – Kilger acused Leslie of changing information – closed door session info provided confirming ministry statement of abuse.

Kilger owed the public the truth – Kilger lied – letter from 2009 turned his stomach – not one, but two investigations – Kilger did not follow instructions from council – Kilger lied to the city lawyer – Robert Menagh – Kilger talked new HR direction – no new direction ever presented to council – Leslie’s public apology to Diane Shay – Could not believe the city could do that to an individual – Menagh was scapegoat, another story to be told.

Was ready to resign – could no longer trust information recieved – admits should have left in Dec 2011 – would not touch on the illegal meetings that the public was not notifed for – mentions Cornwall Free News – City to take legal action to get CFN shut down – agreed that story we were print was what he had heard – lawyers and city “CFN nothing more than a blog” – lawsuit never happened – “how can the corp sue without council’s approval?” – City was paying lawyers to monitor CFN – “It didn’t cost much money” Kilger had no authority to do such a thing – Rivette interview on CFN – singled out at in camera meeting leading to Fournier investigation.

Emotional about intimidation by your peers – Leslie appointed witness by Andre – Rivette had done nothing wrong – could not watch Kilger rule by intimidation – direction of council not followed – could not trust sr management or Mayor – met with city solicior about leaving before second investigation commenced – told and showed lawyer that he had been lied to – resigned on April 10 in protest – did not quit –

Kilger did not do it alone – met Diane Shay and other whistle blowers after resigning – met with Menagh – what was withheld was totally unheard of – on Councilors Murphy and Dupelle – talks about Andre Rivette – promotes Greg Kielec –

Diane Shay holding people accountable – the case needs to go to court and the truth be told – “you cannot fix something until you know how it’s broken ” – “my term on council from disappointment to disgust, to rage” – intimdation and bullying – “we bury it behind closed doors” – “it has to be talked about in the community” – more to come during the campaign – “if Diane Shay can go through six years of this, I can go for six weeks” – to Kilger “Debate the issues. This isn’t going to go away.” – Paying off Diane Shay is not the answer. Going to court is; but not at her expense.” –

If anyone needs motivation to vote for Leslie O’Shaughnessy for mayor and not the current train wreck please view these videos. They provide enough proof that change is needed.

WHAT in Heaven’s name has been going on behind closed doors involving democratically elected people who are supposed to represent the interests of the population ???? A nurse witnessed a case of elder abuse at a city-owned nursing home is alleged to have reported the incident to the Ministry of Health . . . . MOH regulations require that such incidents have to be reported to them. So WHY did City of Cornwall officials persecute a nurse who was required by law to follow MOH regulation ???? Is this the reason behind the resignations of the former manager of the… Read more »

There are serious allegations against a former CAO that may possibly implicate the incumbent mayor. Are these isolated incidents or have we merely become aware of the proverbial TIP-of-the-ICEBERG ??? If these allegations are the tip-of-the-iceberg that have recently surfaced above water, then the question begs to be asked as to what else has being transpiring behind closed doors that involves city officials ?? With regard to the alleged case of elder abuse at a city operated nursing home, the EOHU has staff who regularly visit and monitor nursing homes. Did EOHU staff and the head of EOHU know anything… Read more »

This is one of the few times that I wish to God that I was in Cornwall to vote for Leslie O’Shaughnessey and this is a mighty good man to come forward about the abuses give to Ms. Shay, Mr. Rob Hickley and God knows how many others as well. Mr. Menaugh who is a former HR man knows plenty as well of what was going on and he was a fall guy in a this train wreck. Even to want to take Jamie’s paper CFN out of action because Jamie gives everyone the truth and is doing what he… Read more »

Some 25-years ago, then Mayor Brian Lynch initiated an audit of city management. The outside auditor concluded that “too much power was concentrated in the office of the CAO” . . . the CAO was subsequently terminated from that post. Several members of council protested in support of the then CAO, sounding like Shakespearean actors in Julius Caesar announcing loudly, “For Brutus is an honourable man!” Today we need to ask the question, “Is too much power concentrated in the office of Cornwall’s CAO”????? It is very likely that there was excess power concentrated in the office of the CAO… Read more »

Hugger1…You have said it very nicely in two sentences. I am quite sure as the campaign goes on, Leslie will tell a whole lot more. Kilger must have his head up his own ass by now, the SCUMBAG he is. The truth may even come out about his son being hired by the city. Couldn’t even pass the entrance exam but yet he is still hired. Go figure!
To you Jamie, THANKS for the great reporting.

Thank you Hugger. This is one of the times that I wish that I was in Cornwall to give my vote to Leslie O’Shaughnessey with whom I have great respect for even though I don’t know him personally. I guarantee you Hugger that I do not follow Ottawa’s crooked politics and do not intend to vote here at all. My daughter will not vote nor my husband – we know that it is crooked but I have not seen such crooked things involved with Bare Ass and Ottawa and Toronto and I will not vote for any of them.

Election Strategy – How to get an incumbent who is surrounded by controversy, re-elected. Begin with people around him who are suspected of being involved in controversy and get them to resign their posts . . . . . make sure there is a reward for them for having resigned. Even if the office the person occupies was previously involved in controversy and the present office holder is squeeky clean, their resignation would benefit the incumbent who may then declare that he/she will begin their next term with an entirely new team that will be free from past political baggage.… Read more »

{MODERATED because the SF does not allow links to CFN} In the article Bob denies the allegations Leslie O’Shaughnessy mentioned Friday. It’s so easy to deny these things when they happened behind closed doors, eh Bob. I’m hoping some of the current councilors will come out and collaborate Leslie O’Shaughnessy allegations further sealing Bob Kilger’s fate.

HARRY, I ENJOYED OUR DISCUSSION ON FRIDAY NIGHT. MY COMMENTS ARE AS FOLLOWS: REGARDLESS OF WHAT COUNCIL DID OR DIDN’T KNOW FROM 2008 TO 2010, THEY WERE DEFIATELY INFORMED IN 2011, YET THEY DID NOT DO AN INVESTIGATION EITHER UNDER THEIR OWN WHISTLEBLOWER POLICY OR HARASSMENT POLIY AND WENT ON TO NEEDLSSLY SPEND TAX DOLLARS ON A DEFENCE WHICH WAS NON EXISENT. THERE STRATEGY WAS TO DENY, DELAY, DIVIDE AND DISCRIT WHICH AT THE 11TH COLLAPSED BECAUSE MS. DEROUCHIE DID NOT ATTEND COURT AND REFUSED TO TESTIFY. THE HEARING HAD TO BE MOVED FORWARD TO OCTOBER WHEN THE CITY ULTIMATELY… Read more »

Great CFN Coverage Jamie on this story the truth must come out and it will surface, and Yes Leslie’s VISION for Cornwall going forward will also be made very CLEAR.
Also as you are no doubt aware what has surfaced so far is just the TIP-of the-ICE- BERG.
STAY TUNED FOLKS!

It is going to take André Rivette, Maurice Dupelle and Gerry Samson to come forward to testify and the word of these three men weigh a lot. As for the people of Cornwall Jamie mentioned something mighty true and that is their brains are fogged with the filthy contaminated poisons from Domtar as well as ICI, Courthaulds and others and it causes retardation, cancer, asthma, etc. Cornwall’s air and soil will be contaminated for over a hundred years to come. The toilet papers of record are just that “toilet paper” and nothing more. Jamie has the only paper that is… Read more »

Good comments.

I’ve noticed the CSF has started to show more balls and is reporting news as it should be reported. Case in point was Leslie O’Shaunessy’s meet and greet Friday. They at least questioned the mayor on the allegations.

Did someone report this to the Ontario Bar Association?

What about Helen Finn? She is our city clerk AND a lawyer in Quebec. Should she not be bringing irregularities up dyring open council meeings or to the taxpayers attention?

jules
Guest

Helen Finn is licenced in Québec as a lawyer and even if she knows the laws she may not be able to say anything if she does not have an Ontario licence to practice law. Boo Boo is a practicing lawyer in Cornwall from what I gather and she is supposed to bring up things that are not appropriate. The blame lies on Boo Boo and not so much on Helen Finn.

Cornwall hockey years ago when Mayor Martelle was in the mayor’s job there was a freeze on hiring of the Barney Fife PD’s and one man who is a professional engineer applied in the department and he didn’t get the job but Martelle’s son got in and there was a freeze on hiring. There is a great deal of injustice and that I will agree 100% and more all the way. There is so much of that going on even here in Ottawa. It used to be way back in my day that you got hired because of your qualifications… Read more »

And the clique strikes again. Glen Grant calling for a recorded vote on the proposed development at 1154 Montreal Rd requesting reduced taxes and other funding reeks of clique interference again. Council has to realize you spend money to make money. Allowing this development would have shown to other developers that Cornwall was open for business, Allowing a recorded vote allowed the mayor to get his 2 cents in. Sure the taxes would have been reduced for 10 years. But after that taxes would have been normal. More examples of why major change is needed around the council table.

I stand corrected/ But does it really matter?

If, we the electors, don’t seize this opportunity to clean house on October 27th, with all of this information that has come forward, we deserve what we got ?
On a personal note, I have often wondered if an outside Police Agency should be entering this fiasco, to investigate the allegations that have been brought forward ? These are indeed serious issues !

Hugger1
Guest

I agree BEBE REBOZO. But for it to happen a formal complaint must be made and presumably by a current council member. As Kilger has most of the current council on his side whose going to make the complaint?
