Cornwall’s Waterfront Development Committee
To personally attack the people who volunteered their names to sit on this committee is just plain ignorant. How many people do you think applied for this committee and more importantly how many of the those attacking the integrity of Mr. Perkins and Mr. Menard do you think applied for this committee…….I think ZERO! So, it’s not fair to personally attack the people, who have the most experience in construction, for applying to be members of a development committee when that’s where their experience lays and arguably how they can help our city the most!
Let’s call a spade a spade and stick to the topic of discussion. The idea of developing any part of the parking lot in question was not looked upon favourably and was for lack of a better term…a bad idea! Move on!
Development of the Domtar Sites, Oil Tanks, Si Miller, etc. would beautify the waterfront and downtown core as well as be welcomed by those opposed to the development of any green space.
The committee claims we are all misinformed but I never heard anything other than the words CONDO or CASINO when the topic was discussed.
Cornwall City Council
Cornwall City Council has started fence jumping to save their political careers and it makes me laugh to see how desperate many of them have become. One week for an idea and the next against. Well you can see that re-election has become more important to some other than progression.
The biggest shocker of the year, so far, was when I read Claude MCintosh’ column when he declared Mayor Kilger and most of Council would be re-elected if an election where to take place today. Did the mayor take Claude out for lunch and give a big old take one for the team pat on the behind? Council has been shamed by the loss of a councillor believed to be due to abundance of secret meetings, firing of managers for mistreating staff, questionable actions by the CEO and need I say more? Mayor Kilger declared that if Mark MacDonald was elected council would become a gong show…..well this council is this biggest Gong Show in the city’s history! They either do nothing when they should or the do something when they shouldn’t……..a total train wreck!
This council is running scared and cringes when it sees any other media that isn’t the freeloader! And if they aren’t afraid then they really are out of touch with reality and how we perceive them!
Two huge thumbs up to the Cornwall Minor Baseball Association for sticking up for the baseball park! The speech given at the waterfront development meeting was strong and ensured the proverbial backhand was felt and heard!
Did Pat Finucan say that he was impartial by defending the waterfront committee after Mr. Aubin’s criticism of some members! I may not agree with Mr. Aubin but I call your BXXXXXXX; Mr Finucan and raise you two BXXXXXXX’s! How can the campaign chair for Mr. Kilger’s mayoral campaign, which chose the waterfront committee, be impartial? If you ran the campaign for the individual who choose this committee and now the public doesn’t like who was chosen would you not try to defend these people to purely protect your interests or past decisions? Shame on you for thinking we are all that dumb!
But it doesn’t surprise me that the clique believes their own BXXXXXXX!
