Watergate in Cornwall? Mayoralty Candidate Mark A MacDonald has Campaign Office Broken Into – Cornwall Ontario – October 2, 2010

Cornwall ON – Cornwall City Councilor and candidate for Mayor Mark MacDonald had his campaign office broken into.    With a police office across the street and close circuit cameras in the East End in place someone kicked in the glass to the office front door and entered.

One note book computer was reported stolen and no other damage was reported.

  1. A police station across the street and cameras? It should be pretty easy then to find out who did it.

  2. One guess…..guess who?

    Now now, we were just teasing. I know Montreal Road and I’m sure there was no political intent on the break in 🙂

  4. If the notebook was in visable site to those looking in the building from the outside…it was an invitation for a “smash and grab”.

  5. publicity stunt…. Great idea!

    What kind of logic is that? If you show cleavage is that it was an invitation for a “feel and grab”?

    I could see the publicity stunt though. Mark has done that through out his whole term as a Cornwall City Councillor, similar to Korey the Kid. A good heart but something still lacks. If you remember, Mark and Andre Rivette were going to earn us a lot of money from Robert H Saunders. They were going to block traffic. Well until it came time to produce.

    More recently he stood in the same neighbourhood promoting the small stores in the east end as well as how redevelopment should be carried to support the smaller industries. Mark I think now you know why businesses do not want to move into the east end.

  7. Why was MacDonald using city property in his campaign office? Sounds like mis-appropriation to me.

  8. Where should the businesses move Smee? The information pamphlet about the cameras in Le Village showed that crime rates were just as high downtown.

    A publicity stunt? The cost of replacing the glass on it’s own would be enough to make it too much trouble let alone cleaning it up but the possiblity of fines for calling in the police to investigate I would hope would be the biggest reason why this is probably not a publicity stunt.

  9. You missed the point Alan
    It is not where businesses should locate but what must be done before business should locate in the east end. Though many good people live there it is still recognized as French Harlem, One good thing can be said about, Kaneb is doing a good job finally turning their property into living quarters. I just wonder who will live there knowing the reputation of the area.

  10. Sorry Alan that was for Keyene

  11. To Alan Palmer: for your information, council members are required to purchase their laptops when they are elected to office. So, therefore, your comment on mis-appropriation was totally unfounded.
