CFN – Cornwall City Councilor Robert Brock Frost has been confirmed as the same Robert Brock Frost we wrote about in an earlier story regarding the lawsuit over the $690K US by Mr. Al Hatset of California who has alleged that Mr. Frost and the Century 21 Agency he worked for took his money and didn’t deliver a property.
Mr. Frost spoke on this Sunday, yet clearly he knew as he was served and made a statement in a successful motion to dismiss that has been appealed. Mr. Frost has not denied that Mr. Hatset’s money went poof and that he didn’t receive the house he had purchased.
CFN can also confirm that Mr. Frost was not a registered real estate agent in Nicaragua.
Mr. Frost has gone on a virtual rampage since our story broke. He appeared on a local online radio show pooh poohing the story, but in an alarming twist has issued not one, but two media releases defaming this writer and CFN using his office as City Councilor to do so.
This one appeared on Bill Kingston’s website.
“You have elected me to lead this city. You have elected me to make Cornwall a better place and this is a mandate that I take very seriously.
I want to live in a city where the spread of hatred doesn’t exist, where rumours are stopped in their tracks and lies are simply ignored.
I have been patiently waiting, and watching, as the lies and rumours poor in from Mr Gilcig and others. I have been accused of numerous allegations which are just complete and utter nonsense. Jealousy is a powerful emotion. One that quickly becomes an obsession and festers in to hate. There are consequences to the words we say and in the end, justice will always prevail.
I am asking the citizens of Cornwall to speak up now. If you have ever been slandered, lied about, viciously attacked or harrassed by Mr Gilcig, or any other person for that matter, please send me your story.
It is time Cornwall rids itself of the incessant hatred and spread of lies that has plagued our city for years now. If we only spent as much time working as we did gossiping, we would all have one fantastic place to call home.
I have to admit that I too would like to live in a city where lies are confronted as I’m sure most Cornwall River Kings fans, Players and Season Ticket holders would as well. Of course confronting those lies should not be met with lawsuits, should it? Will Mr. Frost use City resources to attack those that simply ask questions? Are we back to the Bob Kilger Council before the first meeting has started?
CFN can also confirm that we spoke with Mr. Hatset’s lawyer David Skilling of Gaston & Gaston in San Diego California and that the case is very much alive and that in fact an appellate decision on venue should be forth coming.
Mr. Hatset also alleged that Mr. Frost used the services of Edmonton Criminal Lawyer Kelly Dawson (dsscrimlaw.com) early in the case.
Mr. Dawson’s specialty from his webpage:
Kelly’s practice tends to focus on serious cases involving complex factual situations where witness credibility must be challenged aggressively (eg. murder, sexual and domestic assault). Another area of focus involves driving offences (eg. impaired and dangerous driving), particularly where the charges involve bodily harm or death.
According to Mr. Hatset who CFN spoke with via telephone from Nicaragua, Mr. Dawson attempted to negotiate on behalf of Mr. Frost. Mr. Hatset claimed that there was never an issue of Mr. Frost being innocent and that the offer presented via Mr. Dawson was rejected.
As for the Edmonton connection:
(Screen cap from Mr. Frost’s website) Mr. Frost mentions transferring from Edmonton in 2010 around the time that the nastiness heated up.
Mr. Hatset is vowing to pursue this case until it’s resolved.
Mr. Frost has not been convicted of any charges as of yet and none of the allegations have been proven in a court of law.
Mr. Frost reneged on his promise to fund both Cornwall River Kings games this past weekend as the LNAH has officially taken over the team.
It’s not clear if a new ownership group has been resolved.
