Was Cornwall Newswatch Bill Kingston The Neighbor That Complained About Cadieux Kids Worms in Cornwall ? #wormgate

The Cadieux family was shocked to read a story written by Bill Kingston of Cornwall Newswatch who turns out to be their neighbor!

Mr. Kingston owns the charming home across from the street which caused some neighbors to ask if Mr. Kingston was the party that complained to City Hall which led to an order to shut down the worm business that their children were working on in the Summer.

From Mr. Kingston’s piece:

“While Bedford said the department would respond to a land use complaint, the issue at Second Street West would have fallen under two bylaws – the comprehensive zoning bylaw and the signs bylaw.

“You don’t want a proliferation of signs in a neighbourhood…in a residential area.” The signs bylaw allows a small sign for your name but you can’t identify a home occupation.”

Kids selling worms is a “home occupation”?  Really?  The tenor of the story almost suggested some sort of weirdness on the part of the family who have garnered support from neighbors and people as far away as Alexandria and even a gentleman that came from Long Sault to purchase some of the kids worms.

One local car dealer (who we won’t mention because they boycott CFN) even offered to let the kids sell worms from their lot on Saturdays, which is a lovely gesture.

There’s a certain double irony in that Mr. Kingston failed to report on one  of, oddly enough, biggest news stories to date this year in Cornwall while living across the street, and if he was the person who fingered the kids the bigger irony is that he himself is an entrepreneur allegedly taking tax dollars in the Self Employment program via St. Lawrence College after Corus Radio shut down their newsroom and terminating his former position as News Director.

Mr. Kingston did not respond to our question prior to publication.

This isn’t Mr. Kingston’s first time upsetting viewers with some suggesting that he caters to local politicians instead of viewers.

 

What do you think dear CFN viewers?  You can post your comments below.

I,m wondering now if Bill could drop this low, I was giving Bill shit in this video & called him chicken shit,guess I was more right than I knew,how despicable can one man get. Maybe somebody should check to see if he was drawing unemployment while receiving money from Newswatch…serves him right.

To be fair, no one knows for sure if it was him that complained. I’m not a fan of his, however i really can stand mob mentality on the internet and accusing someone of something without facts, evidence or proof. Good on you Marry for getting in his face to get your point across. We need more folks like you at protests around here.

Jerry, Myself & others tried our best to awaken Cornwall about several corruption & conflicts of interest but facts remain, most people couldn,t give a rats ass about what goes on around Cornwall…that is until it happens to them which of course is too late. We had seen a problem & tried our best to fix it. In rallies we had no more than 200 come out to support & show interest.Many sheeple live in Cornwall,they are content with the status quo;(

Bylaw will not reveal who filed the complaint.

Jerry I agree….mob mentality gets you no where.

Mary Bray. Taxpayer / voter complacency is rampant everywhere. It’s no worse in Cornwall than any other city. It shows much more in Cornwall due to our size.

I never said it was okay that what happens here or elsewhere was okay. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make this a better place to live and grow our families and businesses. The silliness of Cornwall stands out due to its size. If you think bylaw in other cities don’t deal with nuisance complaints you are sorely mistaken. Perhaps Jules and others wouldn’t be attacked if she wasn’t continually attacking the city we live in. It’s fine for her to mention her opinion of Cornwall. But to continually attack Cornwall in a lot of her comments crosses the line.… Read more »

if the city takes action on this, goes to court the person who complained will be known by name and address. that is how it works.

Jules, I have no problem with Jule’s opinion of Cornwall. The problem I have is she puts down the common folks that live here. I can understand ripping on council or police or any other authority. However calling regular citizens names just for living here is a little messed up. Like her saying the worm sign family and the Monico rink family are really good people, then in the next breath say that anyone living in Cornwall are insane, pedophiles and criminals. Jules you of all people know how hard it is to just pick up and move a family… Read more »

I sincerely enjoyed Mary Bray’s comment and she said it right and eloquently unlike myself who does attack. Jamie and Hugger and folks what others think about me does not affect me one darn bit. I have all the confidence in myself and I laugh like a nut over all what is happening but one thing is that I hold good people in my heart like the Cadieux family and the teachers that made the ice rink. I have two adult kids now and know what it is like to raise a family and it isn’t easy at all and… Read more »

Jerry I do have to jump in here and I made a huge write up that Jamie didn’t put through and I will try to make this brief as I can. Jerry as God is my witness I have never meant to hurt you or some good people that I feel are good from my area of the computer screen. I never had bad feelings or tried not to towards you and towards many others with an exception to this person called Miss Steak and I remember one other person like lthis Miss Steak and cannot remember the addy that… Read more »

For you to think that the nonsense that happens in Cornwall doesn’t happen elsewhere is beyond laughable. Welfare use and fraud happens everywhere…..wakeup!!!

Cornwall still has a ways to go before ridding itself of its former history. Baby steps, baby steps.

Very well put Jerry.

Yes Cornwall has some unique challenges. But I dare you to name me a town or city that doesn’t.

Well, Cornwall sure doesn’t have a monopoly on pettiness. Cities all across Canada are banning everything from tobogans to lemonade stands tto street hockey. And now kids cant sell worms. Canada: old Huron word meaning “land of no fun.”

There are three things in the mix: a bloated bureaucracy doing pretend work; miserable bed wetters who want to make everyone’s life as sad as their own; and a population that sits idly by instead of stopping the nonsense.

I never said things were rosy in Cornwall. Yes, Cornwall has its issues, as does every town and city in the world. Cornwall deals with its issues as best it can. Each town / city deals with ts issues in their own way. Cornwallites have been kept down for so long its hard to keep fighting if you don’t see any progress. Throw in Cornwall’s previous reputation as a mill town and it does not help. Town / city reputations are hard to shake and I fear Cornwall will never shake the reputation it has now.

LOL LOL. ROLF! I think that I need the Royal Hospital for the Mentally Insane and be placed as soon as possible or is it wacky Cornwall. I just read one article on the freeloader and something about someone’s noisy parrot in the Riverdale area of town. I thought that I have seen and read it all until now. No wonder I am wacky – Cornwall has made me that way. If any of you haven’t read that article please do so. I need help desperately – I am roaring with laughter literally. I can’t believe the insanity of Cornwall.… Read more »

And again someone that says they don’t read the Cornwall media, but yet they read the Cornwall Standard-Freeholder. What is it? Either you read the local media or you don’t?? And now you’re insulting people with mental issues calling the Royal Ottawa Hospital the Royal Hospital for the Mentally Insane.

Hugger1, You left Kingston out of having issues, You can do better than that,there must be one LOL

Hugger1
Guest

Just a few examples were quoted. I’m sure if I researched further I could find issues with any city or town.

Jerry
Guest

Not to mention that Cornwall should managed by the ward system. That would help solve a lot of the issues we have. But you know, that would make sense so fugget about it.

Hugger1
Guest

A ward system has been suggested by a few people. How do we go aboutggetting it discussed at council?

Hugger1
Guest

Agreed. But putting it off until the election after next IMHO is a waste of time and money. m As well, getting this in place will show real progress as the city councillors would then be accountable to a specific area, not city wide. It’s too easy now for them to brush off a topic now. We need this put in place for the next election, not in time for an election seven years away.

Hugger you mentioned the two words before “baby steps” and if Cornwall were to continue taking “baby steps” it would never get out of the rut that it is in and I guarantee you that. Cornwall is in a mighty bad situation with the reputation that it got itself into and try getting out of that one when everyone knows all about it. When one’s reputation is destroyed it is gone for good.

Hugger1
Guest

JUles, nothing gets changed overnight. Yes, Cornwall has a bad reputation for some previous incidents. But it can be changed. It won’t happen overnight. That’s what I meant by baby steps.

{MODERATED for unadulterated butt kissing} I think Jamie should be mayor. He has all the answers in life. Life would be a lot simpler if we all just listened to Jamie. Yeah Jamie!

jules
Guest
Jamie would be one of the most sane people as mayor compared to all the insanity that we have seen so far. Leslie was supposed to be more normal than BOB but instead we see one more wacky than BOB bsesides yours truly. LOL LOL. Just this morning I was thinking about the Vincents and all what they went through and they left Cornwall for better and saner pastures. The Cadieux family are going through their bits of crazyness right now and there will be more to come. One thing about Cornwall it just keeps me laughing.

The last time I checked the Vincent’s house was still for sale. Price and location may be a factor.

Jamie it was yesterday that I read where someone said that the Vincents have left Cornwall so I ran with it. My mistake or would I put it as my mistrake. LOL LOL.

Jamie, Hugger and folks have you seen the seaway news by any chance. If you haven’t go and look at it. The piece that I looked at was about some Italian man who has a house on Sydney Street in Cornwall and take a good look at his swimming pool. The man makes his home in Florida according to the write up and it looks much worse than Sanford and Son’s dump. The water is green ready as a mosquito breeding ground of disease and garbage – you all have to see this. The insane, stupid, backward city hall goes… Read more »

Jules….the city has sent the owner not only a notice of inspection, but also an order demanding that the property be cleaned up about a month ago. But those “requests” have been ignored. The city is meeting Wednesday a.m. to figure out what to do next. I say have the city clean the mess up and add it to the owner’s tax bill.

Hugger1

I just did an MLS search. It looks like the Vincent house has been sold.

{MODERATED} Sorry Ryan. You chose to be active in the boycott/hate group. Live down to it now.

David Oldham

Hugger1 ….in Ottawa a property that fails to meet standards ends up with work orders registered against it. Work that ends up being carried out by the city ends up being added to the tax bill. Eventually the home changes hands or the offending owner ponies up and the taxes including the additions are paid.

In Cornwall, who knows? You might ask one of the councilors, however they are not noted for answering direct questions. They could after a period of time recommend a study or ask someone in Toronto. Don’t hold your breath waiting for a reply.

Hugger1
Guest

Apparently clean up work was to begin today.

I would imagine the same rules apply here if the owner doesn’t complete city ordered work.

jules
Guest

Jerry the ward system is only part of a solution. If you do not have good representation then you are in trouble. I thought that Leslie would be an improvement over BOB and it turned out that both are wackos. The same holds true for council there are hardly any normal people sitting there around the horseshoe and are there for their own well being. Cornwall is in a real rut and that is true and it is going to take everyone to stand up and fight or else nothing will get done with these bozos.

Hugger1

For those who thinks this only happens in Cornwall. And this isn’t the first time this has happened in Ottawa.

Kids cannot be kids these days and no wonder we have so much crime. All we see are people driving impaired with drugs and alcohol and people are mighty depressed and carrying cell phones around and staring at them like a bunch of zombies crossing the streets and waiting for the OC Transpo cattle cars. I wish that I was living in the 50’s and 60’s but not nowadays.

jules
Guest

I don’t think that Bill Kingston has any kids and whether he does or doesn’t he is a scrooge and maybe had a bad childhood and hates all kids. I feel for the good people who left Cornhole like the Vincent family what they went through with the scrooge snobs on their street who don’t like kids. Kids are enclosed inside their homes here in Ottawa because of the dangers.
