  1. Great things are happening in Cornwall and you are one of them Maurice! Your dedication and passion for all you do is always evident in the decent way you treat people and truly care about them.

    Cornwall is so fortunate to have someone like you be our voice and represent us at Council.

    Congratulations on a job (many) well done and the best of luck to you and your family in the future as you continue on this part of your life journey.

    We are honoured to know you!!

  2. Way to go Maurice and keep up the good work. You, André and Gerry have done good things. I wish you the best on the election. I hope that Mark A. MacDonald gets in as well as Mr. Samler. I believe in not more than 6 or 7 councellors for such a small town. Ten councellors is way too much and that is one of the reasons for too high of a tax rate. It is long overdo for a real overhaul. You are one that I am rooting for from Ottawa. Cornwall is my hometown. All the best and to all that I have named go for it.
