Cornwall Ontario – Museum curator Ian Bowering has authorized us to print his apology to CFN after openly smashing his hand into our news camera and shutting if off by flipping the door to the camera shut while we were covering the Waterfront Chemical tank protest here in Cornwall Ontario.
Below is his email unedited. Please never physically interfere with news media. We are just doing our job.
I am not authorized to agree to the costs without a referee, but I am sincerely sorry that the incident happened, as I know that you are trying and are successful in covering Cornwall news.
With regard to costs, if you do find that there has been damage do let me know and I am sure that we can find a resolution. As for printing anything I have written, I do not write anything that the public cannot see.
Mr. Bowering had been attending the rally and handing out material about the history of the lot where the construction was taking place.
