CORNWALL Ontario – Disgraced former Team Cornwall President Gilles Latour was actually thanked by current Team Cornwall President Peter Gault early this morning in what has to be one of the most bizarre public statements in light of the black eye Mr. Latour has given to the local business community.
Mr. Latour was present at the event at the Galaxy theatre. The nearly 300 strong were present to review the year.
Mr. Latour is fighting over 60 police charges relating to his activities from a five month investigation into his actions at Latour Wealth Management with fraud allegations nearing the $1M mark. That investigation is still ongoing and police are still seeking more information.
Mr. Latour has ducked media since his charges and kept a low profile, but couldn’t resist appearing early this morning.
Most of the City Council appeared including criminal councilor Brock Frost. Former mayor Bob Kilger was not in attendance.
Mr. Latour also left the board of the Max Keeping Foundation.
