Robert Brock Frost Honoured With Most Committee Seats in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JAN 13, 2015

Kim_Jong-Un_SketchPeople’s Republic of Cornwall Ontario – Monday night the Great Council of theBrock Frost Council DEC 8 2014 People’s Republic of Cornwall Ontario decreed that honorable Councilor Brock Fraud Frost most honoured status as he was placed on seven Committees, most of this most honorable council.

Mr. Frost, known for deceiving bad capitalist pig hockey fans into getting him elected by buying their hockey team and then stiffing them, as well as funny real estate deals against a US American capitalist pig was selected over all others for his acumen and integrity.

He was in particular put on the committees for Waterfront and Cornwall Housing as well as the Audit Committee.

He is a shining beacon of all that is honorable about the People’s Republic of Cornwall Ontario.

The Port Divestiture Committee is being led by Mayor O’Shaugnessy, and Councillors Bernadette Clement, Elaine MacDonald, and aged and honourable Claude “Leaky” McIntosh.  This should ensure a smooth transition of polluted crown lands so that Akwesasne can make money and Cornwall taxpayers can pay bill.   It is time to pay back to the Great victims of Capitilism and English Imperalism via the great purse that is the Cornwall rate payer who may have to pay 5.88% extra this year because…….sending two litigators to a small claims settlement hearing adds up.

Carilyne Hebert, on the lay committee, saw her mother join a committee.  As the Lay Committee worked in camera (read Hugo Rodrigues editorial in the Standard Freeholder) we have no  idea whether the most honorable with tacky tattoos recused herself of that conversation or if they swapped support to let other relatives and friends in like Andre Rivette’s son Rodney who ended up on two boards.

Punished were despised and soon to be exiled editor of CFN Jamie Gilcig and Roland Besner.   Both supported the uprising of the people to keep a family ice rink which the Honorable council did their best to destroy at Capitalist holiday instead of teaching by laws to children via VIP desires.   Together both applied to be on ten committees but no seats were given.  Julia Lucio, who some question whether she can spell her own name,  was given two seats on committees due to her incredible grasp of ethics including charging for food reviews and selling front page headlines and stories of her newspaper as advertising as has been spoken of glowingly with much respect and support.

Even venerated elder Glen Grant was put in high esteem and placed on two committees showing that the People’s Republic of Cornwall Ontario will stand for its generations of tradition in honouring those that give to their community in the way that only people like Glen Grant can.

 

You may now leave approved comments of glory of your Supreme Council of the People’s Republic of Cornwall Ontario.

UPDATED Jan 15, 2015

It should be noted that this was a satirical piece and that Mr. Frost had less slots than Councilor Bernadette Clement who while on environmental board remained silent while the city was trapping beavers in our nature park.  Cornwall politics can be wacky and sometimes levity is the only device to endure the travails of weirdness.

Jamie I am sitting here laughing myself to pieces and my dear man I knew what Caroline Hébert was about from the first time that I looked at her and you have been moderating me since day 1 but I tell you that I didn’t like her from way back. Frosty is very intelligent and a schemer very much like Cornwall’s notorious Willie Wise and he sure pulled a fast one on the people “no sheeple” of Cornwall who fell for all the lies. Wait until the sheeple get their tax bills in the mail and see how many homes… Read more »

Honestly, I can’t wait until “The Story Of Cornwall” goes national. Everything is such a joke and the funniest part seems to be that no one thinks they will be held accountable! I cannot understand how someone who is PROVEN to be distrustful is appointed to city development groups. Grab your popcorn people.

Isn’t being on the Waterfront and Cornwall Housing committeess a conflict of interest for Brock?

Jules….let’s wait until the tax rate increase is settled BEFORE we panic. I highly doubt the tax increase will be anywhere near what was suggested. This happens all the time. Bring in a dream budget then get it whittled dow to what council and the taxpayers can accept.

Audit Committee ? What a slam dunk match up.

Again, I have been passed over for any lay appointment positions in this city. I did have hope for this new council for them to see me as one to make a real difference in this community but they went back to hang on to the old boys and girls to continue to slide back into the slimy ways of the past eight years of Kilgerism and give away lay appointments to the old boys club again. Time to think about moving on this summer as soon as I have settled my current commitments. I know that I deserve more… Read more »

Took a drive out to Long Sault. Now I understand why Cornwall is stagnating. If I was staying in Ontario I could live there very easily. Funny, retirees left Quebec because of the provincial tax burden and uncertain political climate and now retirees leave Ontario because of the financial tax burden caused by a decade of Liberal thunderstorms and failed energy programs. Should Cornwall council choose to ignore the looming financial nightmare which lies ahead for the average Cornwall resident then it will have expedited the further demise of the community. Without some reality entering into the budget review process… Read more »

Hugger how much can they cut more than what they have already? Honestly when BOB (gee I miss that pet name) left the bird cage seat I said that he would leave everyone with a nice little package and I was right. Snow removal alone costs a bundle and BOB went and increased the chief of the Barney Fife PD’s salary and guess who is going to pay for that nice package – oh yes you all guessed it – I have to get some gold stars for good guessing. If the town cannot afford to shovel the snow then… Read more »

Garden Girl this time you and I are thinking alike – LOL LOL I know this can be kind of dangerous and hilarious at the same time. I am laughing so hard here and waiting for the rest of the country to get hold of the loonie bin of Cornwall. You all wonder why I am so wacky well anyone would be being from Cornwall. Mr. Samler I was hoping that you would get elected and you are an intelligent man and you can sit back and see the looniness going on and you are way too intelligent for that… Read more »

Jules, I’m not a councilor nor a city administrator. But I do know that initial city budgets are brought in with extras added in. It’s done so, when they get the budget cut down to an acceptable level the taxpayers are happy and the counilors can say “look what we did.” Every city does this.

Change is good. However, I don’t see any of it in these committee appointments. The names may have changed, but the attitude hasn’t.

Hugger1

Maybe with new people the attitude will change on the committees. We’ll have to wait and see.

Reminds me of the saying “The more things change, the more they stay the same” by French novelist Alphonse Karr.

Revenge, or tit for tat, plays a big part in municipal politics. And not just in Cornwall. Look at othrt cities where groups of councillors or taxpayers will align themselves with the person or group perceived to be in power.

David Oldham

Hugger1 you are correct, change can be good, unless we merely get a loonie in exchange for four quarters.

We’ll see where we stand after the first couple of meetings of the various committees.

Do they not have to file reports or minutes of meetings? I know when I was on cmmittees at work we had to file reports / minutes to the director or DG.

If they not have to file reports or minutes of meetings how do we know they just aren’t meeting to chow down on pizza and talk hockey?

Hugger1

I agree. Sometimes they are flawed? Sometimes they’re re-written? Sometimes they miss something? Only solution would be to have ALL committees meet in the council chambers with the new camera/ system being purchased to record closed meetings. And no, I am not suggesting all committee meetings be closed.

Cornwall has so many neglected issues such as Poverty, Homelessness,Housing,Transit, Unemployment, Senior Issues, Lack of Doctors and other Social issues that will now continue to go by the wayside or be neglected by this council and now partisan Lay committees and boards. I recognized these issues and stepped up to work on resolving these issues. The city promote these committees as working or action groups but they are in fact nothing more than groups of social tea parties for their friends. They want no part of activism or actual working to help resolve issues and their causes. This is why… Read more »

A while ago I was thinking long and hard about Leslie and we all thought good we get rid of BOB and put in a new bird cage liner and get rid of the old. Now hear this folks. Leslie said just as he was coming in to the cat bird seat that “if there was an old boys club then it wouldn’t exist anymore” what a load of crock BS he dished out to the sheeple who elected him. Cornwall has always been an old boys club and if you want an honest government it doesn’t exist in Cornwall… Read more »

Mr. Samler I agree all the way 100% and more with you that Cornwall has too many serious issues and if you think that the mayor and counsel are going to change these things think again. I want you to look at two videos that Jamie posted on youtube.com and one was of Pat Finnerty (he starts off with a joke and gets into serious issues) and the other is BOB knocking Gerry Samson because Gerry brought up about seniors and low income people unable to pay for the high rents, etc. and BOB didn’t want to hear about the… Read more »

I agree with what Gary Samler said. Let’s let them have a few meetings before we bury them completly. But there’s that name again that so many of us hate. Please try too avoid using it.

Hugger if you are talking about your former dear mayor of Cornwall I thought that he had so many fans. I used his name since Jamie doesn’t want the beautiful pet name that I gave him that he deserves instead. Hugger do not get yourself all upset for stupidity. Nothing is worth getting upset about. Hugger I have plenty that I could fly off the handle for (I am not talking about CFN and such things) and there are plenty of problems in this world and I had to learn to calm down.

{MODERATED} Peoples Republic of Cornwall Ontario Censor say subjects that question numbers misled by Capitalist. In PRCO 2+2 sometimes equals an Oreo Cookie. Never contradict satire while train moving or you get cookie crumbles in folds of skin… Admin; Just want to clear something up. You stated that Frost got the most seats on committee but Clement was given 11 & two other councillors got 9. There were quite a few who also received 7 seats too, so Frost was not an exception but rather, the norm. I still don’t think he should sit on any committee having to do… Read more »

I came up with different numbers as well for the councilors and mayor.

I think at the very least that Brock Frost should not be on the Waterfront and Cornwall & Area Housing Corporation committees. As a landowner that is definitely a conflict of interest.

No Jules, I was not referring to Bob Kilger. I was referring people calling Cornwall Corn-hole. I have really despised that name even when I wasn`t living here. There have been worse mayors than Bob Kilger, I just can`t think of any right now. Toronto has had some real dooseies. And if we want to cross the border how about Marian BerryÉ

Simon

Frost shouldn’t have anything to do with the regional airport either, since they are in a land acquisition/development phase, and of course the airport operator is a former (estranged maybe?) business partner of Frosty the Showman.

Just how F’d up is Cornwall?

And probably why I’m not.

David Oldham

Hugger1 the former mayor and councilor you refer to passed away recently. Brian Sylvester was Cornwall’s mayor when the decision was made for the city to divest itself of ownership of our electrical utility. Of course Brian had a council that approved the sale. Dec 31, 2019 is looming on the horizon and I fully expect that this community will understand why that decision may come back to bite this city rather harshly. Bob Kilger may not have been much of a mayor but I would agree he wasn’t the worse although he certainly has duly earned more than a… Read more »

I was not referring to any particular / councilor or mayor. My comment was meant to be general in nature when I said “There have been worse mayors than Bob Kilger, I just can`t think of any right now.”

Gary W. Samler Cornwall I have come to realize over the years is not a community that focuses on priorities. The same issues continue to haunt this community like incurable diseases. Mayors that have either sat on the fence or have had nothing more on the ball than to attempt to leave a legacy seemed to have been all the rage. Proactive, decisive, progressive, reasoned, focused, committed, transparent, open, unbiased, commonsense, inclusive these are all words found in the dictionary but not generally found around the horseshoe in council meetings. Often the sad reality and legacy of Cornwall councils of… Read more »

Sorry Hugger1 I could not resist in stepping up to the plate and putting it out there. I have an issue with people that make blanket statements without qualification. Don’t be afraid to call a spade a spade and if you are not sure of what you are saying than it is probably best to error on the side of caution and say nothing.

I’m sure if I had the inclination I could find lots of mayors with worse records than Bob Kilger.

Mr. Oldham you and Mr. Samler were on my list of both of you would be good for office but I agree with Marc Pilotte. Once you get there you are in for a hell of a surprise just like the world leaders are when they get in. Saying one thing but you are ruled by somebody else who is above you and makes sure that you go by what they say or else. Good people do not get into office because you have to have dirty things that can be hung over you if you do not go along.… Read more »

Actually Hugger1 in respect to the chosen word “worse” in regards to describing mayors in general and Bob Kilger in particular I was not so much thinking of it from a corruption perspective but rather his lackluster performance and contribution as a whole. For me he did little more than collect a paycheck and benefits and unnecessarily accrue massive debt.

Enough of Bob he is now old news and simply part of our history likely quickly forgotten.

Ah, no more Bob Kilger bashing?
