Holy Gilles Latour! Resigns From the Board of the Max Keeping Foundation Over Fraud Arrest

kilger & Latour ACORNWALL Ontario – Gilles Latour is having a rough time.   The former chair of Team Cornwall recently  was asked to  “resigned”  from the Max Keeping foundation.   Mr. Latour was an integral part of the creation of the Cornwall chapter (whatever that is) of the foundation.

CFN contacted the MKF and received the following answers to some questions from Keelan Green.

Hi Max Keeping Foundation,


We are doing a story on your former board member Gilles Latour of Latour Wealth Management.


Can you please answer a few questions?


1) From what dates was Mr. Latour on your Board of Directors?

   – July 2012 to September 2014


2)  Did Mr. Latour’s $20K donation ever actually get deposited to the MKF?

     – Our Treasurer is out of town on business today and does not have access to his files while travelling, so I am not able to respond to this question today.


3)  Did Mr. Latour have access or control over any of the Cornwall chapters monies?

     – No


4)  On what date did Mr. Latour leave your board?

   – September 17, 2014


5)  Why did Mr. Latour leave your board?

    – Resigned in order to focus on addressing his legal issues.


6) Has there been any internal or external investigation regarding Mr. Latour’s role or activities with the MKF?

    – No

Mr. Latour has not been convicted of the fraud charges of over $200,000 and it is believed his investigation is ongoing.   Mr. Latour also is alleged to be threatening a supplier he owes monies too that was in the process of taking him to small claims court.  Imagine; someone stiffing you on their bill and then trying to give you grief over it?

It is not clear if the funds donated for the Cornwall chapter have been fully used on the kids.  The foundation does things like help kids get hockey equipment.  Mr. Latour pledged $20K when the local chapter opened.

Christine Lefebvre, Division Manager Department of Planning, Parks & Recreation,  responded to a query about the local chapter as per the city of Cornwall’s website.

  1. Who wants to belong to a bunch of frauds we have Willie, Healy, the doctor’s son who posed as a lawyer and defrauded people, Latour and the list keeps on going. It makes good people ashamed to be part of that town.

  2. Finally GL, one of the clique elite, has done something good.

  3. Hugger I wish that all that clique would pack up and move away mighty far away where they can never be found. They have destroyed Cornwall’s reputation and have hurt many good people. I am doing what I can from my end to alert everyone out there that these people are dangerous because of what they belong to. If people would listen to John F. Kennedy’s speech 10 days before he was assassinated you will all find out who murdered this man. He speaks about the secret societies and how they try to stifle the news. You all have Jamie telling you the truth. Jamie may not be Mr. Canada but he is a mighty good man at telling you all the truth and you should all be thankful and respect that he is in Cornwall to help you. You want better change then there are two very good men running for mayor and that is Jamie Gilcig and Leslie O’Shaughnessey. Be mighty careful with whom you pick as councellors as well. Very few of the councellors have any guts and three already in council are good and they are the following: André Rivette, Gerry Samson and Maurice Dupelle. You ask what to do with the rest of them – show them the way to the dump along with Bare Ass and they can throw themselves in the heap of garbage where they belong. Cornwall does not need 10 councellors at all. These people are there for the money and don’t care at all about the people. There should be no more than 6 altogether.

    Jules are you swaying your symbolic vote for Mayor of Cornwall? Have you become undecided? 🙂

  5. No Jamie my dear man I leave the mayorship for you and Leslie. I would literally scare the living hell out of everyone and make them wake up in my way that wouldn’t be too fitting. LOL LOL. Both of you are two very good people and I mean that. I also respect Mr. Samler and Mark MacDonald and I wish that Mr. Oldham would have tossed his hat in the ring. What I see among those new want to be councellors they are not made to lead. You have to have leadership ability and they lack all the qualities. Jamie I would be so mighty tough that everyone would be like mice running in all directions not knowing what to do. You and Leslie are the better candidates for this job. I like and respect both of you and that is the truth.
