CFN – Former Cornwall Ontario city councilor Leslie O’Shaughnessy has announced that he will be releasing a statement Monday regarding why he stepped down April 10th, 2012.
Mr. O’Shaughnessy was hoping to release a statement by June 2012 as he awaited the results of an internal investigation, but delays have led to his near silence since.
We spoke with the former councilor today and he had the following brief quote:
…based on upcoming work that was to be done behind closed doors, I had indicated to the city solicitor on or about April 4 2012 that I would not release a statement until completion of the work that was to commence behind closed doors.
Mr. O’Shaughnessy indicated that his decision did not include the two conflict of interest whistle blower complaints received by the city of Cornwall.
