Denis Thibault – The Darker Side of Cronyism – Ontario Liberal Hustle in Cornwall Ontario?

Thibault WFCornwall Ontario –  We get a lot of email each and every day at CFN; about 800- 1000 emails each day.  Most get dumped promptly to the trash bin and then you sift through what’s left.

Some of those are tips or pieces of information.   Many times they are not valid or impossible to prove.

We recently had this gem come in.

Am so tired of the “old boys ” club here in Cornwall….a few things for you to look into Denis Thibault leaked news of Rob Hickley losing support for lawyers payment for his suit against the city to Todd Lihou at 2 pm today  

Do you think it is odd that Denis  T. has hired Todd Lihou’s WIFE..and recently given her a promotion ( with zero justification) ….talk about influencing media. Oh and Kelli Shaver _ Rick Shaver’s daughter – was the only staff member of an EOTB project (SNAP- with 5 employees- most more qualified than Kelli) to be offered continued employment??? She has now moved on…but the nepotism is ASTOUNDING….more to come

As it turned out the judgement against Mr. Hickley was accurate.
Kimberly Vass Lihou is of course the wife of Seaway News Editor &  Team Cornwall Suck up Todd Lihou.
.
Now Mr. Thibault wears many hats and one is as head of the Eastern Ontario Training Board.   Mr. Thibault will not return emails wearing that hat or provide service to this company for example while sucking back his provincial salary.   (The Eastern Ontario Training Board is Provincially funded)  His relationship with CFN via council should not colour his paid gig with the EOTB; yet it has to date.
.
If you were at the Liberal leadership  nomination meetings at the KOC Hall in Cornwall you would have seen Rick Shaver and his family toddle in and vote.
.
So what we have is the head of agency that dispenses public funds hiring the wife of the editor of a newspaper, and also working with the daughter of said newspaper’s  Manager ( Mr. Shaver lost his publishing title with the Trans Con owned paper)   The same manager who is actively supporting the Liberal Party of  Ontario which Mr. Thibault also is active in.
.
Mr. Thibault also writes a column for Mr. Shaver and of course spends a lot of EOTB money with the Seaway News and of course was the architect of the boycott of CFN with the City of Cornwall.
.
The Province of Ontario, and all provincial agencies to date under the Liberal Governments of both Dalton McGuinty and Premier Wynne also boycott CFN.
.
Anyone seeing a trend here?    There were suggestions and  conspiracy theories that Mr. Thibault was also behind the termination of Greg Kielec at Le Journal de Cornwall over his stories exposing corruption at City Hall here in Cornwall.      Mr. Thibault  via the EOTB had the ability to impact ad dollars for the tiny regional chain in cities like Hawkesbury, Rockland, etc.
.
Since that time Cornwall City Councilor Andre Rivette, another Liberal, has joined Le Journal and lo and behold many ads have started to appear again.
.
Sometimes glimpses of light spill through the shadows of darkness from the halls of politics and business; is this one of those occasions?
.
Is this random?  Is this just friends taking care of friends?  Is this something more dark and sinister?    Should anyone spending tax dollars be able to use them in a partisan fashion?  Is there not a responsibility to the public?
.
The dots in these relationships certainly do connect.  While the conclusion may be not clear and still be questionable it certainly does deserve some scrutiny and consideration.    And government services should be open to all; not only those that support the despot in that position.
.
But with Mr. Thibault supporting the criminal actions and conflict of interest of Mayor Bob Kilger ( a good friend of Dalton McGuinty) and Liberal candidate for just about any position, Bernadette Clement, one can surely wonder how local conspiracy theorists radars are going off?
.
Is this partisan politics at an extreme with deep tentacles leading to Queen’s Park or is it just a sleazy bunch practicing nastiness and cronyism?
.
What do you make of this dear viewers of CFN?   You can post your comments below.
