Cornwall Ontario Mayor Bob Kilger Ditches Settlement Hearing in CFN Panic Button T Shirt Lawsuit
MilkCartonHoodKilger2CFN – Two high priced Ottawa Litigators from the firm of Borden Ladner Gervais LLP  descended into the Courthouse in Cornwall Ontario to represent the City of Cornwall and its mayor Bob Kilger, over the incident that took place in council when the Mayor elected to hit the panic button and call police to remove CFN editor Jamie Gilcig because Mr. Kilger found Mr. Gilcig’s t shirt offensive.

The irony that the man who hit the panic button was in fact missing from the hearing and left CAO Norm Levac to spend the morning in the courthouse with the two tax dollar paid lawyers for a situation that he solely created by initiating a conversation with Mr. Gilcig in council was not missed by many present for the settlement hearing.
.
It appears that there will be a 3 or 4 day trial in the new year; after nominations open for the 2014 Municipal elections.
.
The bigger irony for struggling taxpayers is that the cost of the trial most likely will exceed the amount of the claim.  This after the Mayor and council suggested taxes may be going up by at least 2% in the next budget.
