    How about Guy Lauzon, MP, for raising our overall political awareness to such an unprecedented level?

    At one time, you knew you were in Cornwall when the only conversations you heard were:

    1) The weather
    2) The (NHL) playoffs
    3) The newest Tim Hortons

    Now we have to add a fourth: How Guy Lauzon is so totally useless!

    Cornwall’s Citizen of the Year Award should go to Guy Lauzon because he’s about the only person everyone is talking about!

    Hi Stan,

    Is that the only criteria you use? Talk? Perhaps the type of talk should have some merit too? I mean, we have people talking about Pigeon’s, the bridge crisis; all these Federal Jobs coming to Cornwall that local residents can’t get; moving CBSA stations to locations that have already been demolished.

    Surely there can be people more deserving of this honour? 🙂

    The only other person that comes to mind is a certain on-line newspaper publisher that certainly keeps us abreast of all the local news and happenings. Maybe that person would be more deserving.

    Thank you Stan, but that would be unfair on behalf of the other candidates and as much as I appreciate the sentiment I truly am not worthy…..

    Dooley Thompson! He lead the charge that has entertained Cornwallites and Akwesasronon alike for months!

    Yes Stan, if you mean that everyone is talking about how useless Guy Lauzon is, then by all means, he should be man of the year in that regards. Most useless, and PMO (not constituent) serving MP of the year that is!

    And of course as well Stan, we all know that Guy voted for his constituents when he voted YES to the HST. That must have been the case anyways, I am sure that more than 50% of SD&G wanted him to vote yes.
