CFN – Councilor Andre Rivette is one of the few on Council that puts his money where his mouth is when it comes to seniors in Cornwall Ontario. First off he is one now! Second, his work on trying to save Cornwall General in spite of Mayor Kilger saying he’s not married to the facility helped show his dedication to the health and safety for Seniors in our community and especially at Glen Stor Dun Lodge.
Which is why he was upset and stormed out of the budget meeting after the budget committee voted down his motion to take monies out of reserves to take care of the fire control panel needs, a system that stopped being produced 21 years ago!
I’m requesting the following information in regards to the Fire Panel Update/Inspection report date 2013/07/12.
The report dated Feb. 22,2013 was given to Council this morning.
I want to once again voice my concerns in regards to not taking action to address what I believe is a health and safety concerns at the Glen Stor Dun Lodge. I’m requesting you provide me with the following;
Confirmation letter from our insurance carrier that we are in compliance an that they endorse the action taken in regards to this report and we have done our due diligence.
I would also ask that our fire service provide us with a letter after their inspection of the location and review the concern as indicated in the report by Simplex Grinnell and their recommendations.
I’m requesting both these additional reports be in writing and that copies of these letters be forwarded to Mayor and Council ASAP
Your attention to my request would be greatly appreciated
Councillor Andre Rivette
The motion was moved by Councilor Rivette, seconded by Gerry Samson, another senior, with a recorded vote. Councilors Denis Carr, Denis Thibault, Bernadette, Elaine MacDonald, Glen Grant, and Dave Murphy voted against. Absent were Syd and Maurice Dupelle.
So if anything happens at Glen Stor Dun Lodge, a facility the Mayor’s own mother resides in, this year voters know who cares about being fiscally prudent and about Senior care and safety and who doesn’t.
