The Worst List in Cornwall for 2015 – CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS April 4, 2015

The Worst List in Cornwall for 2015 – CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS April 4, 2015

daveVANCORNWALL Ontario –  CFN is putting together a list of the top, or perhaps bottom, list of people in our amazing city.  These are the self serving nasties that hold our community back and discredit us again, and again, but for mystic (or not so mystic) reasons are still allowed to play outside unattended or properly medicated.

Even worse, through cronyism they place some of their friends in positions of authority that further impact our community.

The list is for 2014 and not historic and of course is not just for politicians.   It can be for something as simple as being a horrible hockey coach.     And as odd as this may sound some of the same people on the this list might also be considered for a Best list of 2015.   Human nature is a funny thing….

If you wish to submit your selections please email jamie@cornwallfreenews.com

Jamie,

I will comment on Politics of course. The last City Council with the exception of now Mayor O’Shaughnessy all qualify for this list. In my opinion doing nothing when you are fully aware of the facts makes you complicit and is just another form of retaliation.

I can’t help but laugh and at the same time feel very sorry for the sheeple of Cornwall who fall for this evil bunch and they bend over and take it very well from the powers that be and that is what is holding Cornwall back. All of this bending over has been inherited and passed down for years on end and hurting the little people something awful. All there are are scandals after scandals and cover ups and pay outs and the worst that I could ever think about was under BOB’s administration but still under Leslie things have… Read more »

There will be resolution/transparency in my case. The City can provide trsndparency voluntarily or in a court room. At the end of the day the result will be the same. They are in the same position they were in 2011 and it will be interesting to see if they choose the same path.

As I have commented before, past behavior reflects future behavior. Should this path be chosen the taxpayers will ultimately have to endure the significant cost.

Take Care,

Diane

Diane when I wrote that piece I was thinking all about the living hell that you went through and still going through along with some others. The guilty were paid with hush money and they should all be tried. Unfortunately this justice system is a joke and it is all JUST US and not justice. Our Canadian law protects the guilty and the innocent pay a terrible price. I was thinking about Rob (from the fire department) who was ostracized by BOB and his gang and he isn’t in the best of health and he knew what they were all… Read more »

Jules,

I agree the system is very broken. I don’t expect justice at this point but I can and will provide transparency which I hope will help all Whistleblowers like, Rob, Julie, Jamie a well as the current Mayor and anyone else who has been exposed to retaliation for simply making a legal, moral and ethical decision.

Just as you commented this is a culture which has been embraced for many, many years. Hopefully this will be the first of many steps to ensure that this does not continue to happen to anyone else.

Take Care,

Diane Shay

I’d like to nominate a certain homophobic preacher.
Can I do that?

Jamie,

Both the City and I have exchanged evidence and therefore the future will involve mediation or a trial. Regardless of the path transparency will occur.

Take Care,

Jaime, since my last blurb under my pen name was not published, I’ll put my name to my comment in hopes that you will post my opinion. Without repeating myself, I wrote initially that I was shocked at your request for the community to participate in your servey of the “worst peopel list”. I find your choice of words to try to entice your readers to air their valid concerns about others very inappropriate,inflamatory, and just down right unprofessional journalism. I also find it very offensive that you would encourage mud slinging along with posting pictures and names of people… Read more »

Jamie,how is this gonna help our amazing city, it wil just give Cornwall more bad publicity.My idea of a good newspaper is to report the news,not create it.

Barb Wollinger
Guest
Jamie, I was never in the shadows, I agree that people who hold power and control, who “run” the city and systems should be held accountable for wrong doings. And it is newsworthy to publish such articles to draw attention and awareness to whats’ really going on. I support your efforts on this type of journalism. But to be honest, posting a picture of this community couple as a headline to your invitation to your readers to participate in the “worst people list”, is misleading in my opinion. To me, it smacks of your personal issue with them. What ever… Read more »

Barb Wollinger….I’ve learned to accept Jaime and his style of journalism. I don’t always agree with him, he can verify that. But it is his show, so I let him run with it. He’s an adult, so he knows of the possible consequences of anything he does. I agree with Brian Green this “list” will bring more bad publicity to the city, something we don’t need.

Barb Wollinger I was born and raised in Cornwall all my life and I could never tolerate the people in charge of Cornwall at all whatsoever and knew that there was no life there for me nor for my family and left for good. When I first left Cornwall back in 75 the people that I worked with in the federal government laughed and poked plenty of fun at Cornwall – everybody knew more things about that town than what I did. One thing is that since Jamie came to Cornwall he has been exposing some things but he can’t… Read more »

Once again my comments have been misinterpreted; surprise, surprise!!! I am not more concerned with the issues being exposed than the actual harm they cause. I don’t know where that came from. So put away the Halloween mask. What I am tired of is all the doom and gloom about Cornwall. How about a “feel good” story from time to time? It may not get the clicks that doom and gloom stories get, but whatever. And when I said “show” I meant it in the context of this being your operation, your business. You can do what you want, when… Read more »

The photo of a wayward old Cornwall Councillor and a shiny child-like would be Cornwall social climber makes one wonder whose mother would be more ashamed.

And if Cornwall even had a social ladder, it would be hard to imagine a lower rung to step on than Murph… unless you’re into that stuff.

Barb for way too long a time small town Cornwall has been sweeping the dirt under the carpet and nobody has been held accountable. A certain mayor that we all know about just calls the “freeloader” and tells them not to publish what is going on. Those in charge are to blame all the way and they get away with everything. I am no Pollyanna and I come out with plenty and Jamie doesn’t publish most of what I say but I can say this I am more than fed up of certain people getting away with it all and… Read more »

Jules, I appreciate what you are saying. I am hardly a person with my head stuck in the sand when it comes to the Cornwall community. I am painfully aware of some of it’s darkest cover-ups such as Project Truth, wrongful dismissals of solid community members, the horrible treatment of whistle blowers, political high jinks, and overall coruption; I can site many incidents of first hand knowledge of this and more but my experience has taught me that while I still have to live and work here, one has to be careful. In saying this, I agree that the spot… Read more »

Very well put Barb Wollinger. In particular I wholeheartedly agree with your statement “When I look at the bigger picture, Cornwall is really no different than any other place, except that “it” just seems to be more blatant, more of it out there for a community of this size.” I’ve been saying this for quite a while now, but people don’t seem to get it.

Admin….While I agree somethings are unique to Cornwall, others are not. Each city has its own quirks. That cannot be denied. As I’ve said before what happens in Cornwall sticks out more due to its size.

Thank you Hugger1, Jamie, like you and many others in our community, I have lived and worked in many other places. Although I was not born here, I do consider Cornwall my home town. Perhaps the better days of my youth in Cornwall has given me rose coloured glasses. I still say that this town has unique features, the country side communities, affordable housing options, beaches, farm land, and friendly people. Perhaps Cornwall being a close knit community, the dirty laundry gets aired very quickly, and the “guilty” rely on their peers to keep things hushed up. Cornwall, in my… Read more »

I must say, this is not journalism. This is mud-slinging.
If you want to paint Cornwall in a good light, brushing it with dung first won’t make it shine any brighter.
This is, by definition, name calling.
Creating a hate list – doesn’t level a playing field, it digs your own hole deeper.
Jamie, you have many good ideas to make Cornwall a better place. This isn’t one of them.

Big difference between a “worst list” and a “hate list.”
