What a weird city I live in. I’m witnessing a lot of hatred in Cornwall. Most of it is on social media and some of it comes from the most surprising places.
Most of it is based on gossip and lies too spread as only gossip seems to be spread Cornwall style.
What those people don’t realize is that it’s more a reflection of the person writing it than the person they are usually writing about.
Cornwall is a funny kind of place. It is a city where the Ontario Government spent over $50 million dollars on something called Project Truth not to cover up a pedophile ring as some think; but to cover up for those who covered up for pedophiles and worse. Frankly in many people’s opinions these people were worse people than the monsters they allowed to exist. One of the biggest companies in Cornwall for example has a convicted pedophile as their in house legal rep.
It’s time for Ms Wynne and her government; the same government that was in charge for Project Truth; start asking the AG to investigate the truth and end this charade of injustice.
A lot of people get hurt when you live in shadows and lies. Sadly those that shine a light on the bad guys or expose them, as I have, take a beating. The degree of that beating has a direct correlation to the integrity and values of a community; whether it be a village, city, province, or even country.
As many know I was charged by the police back in February for allegedly making threatening phone calls. It’s now been over four months that Bell provided categoric proof that as described in the crown’s documents that I did not in fact make the alleged phone calls as per the production order of my phone records.
There were no phone calls from my phone at the time described, on the date described. None. On either occasion. My phone clearly was spoofed.
During all of this time I have had to live under certain conditions that have impacted my ability to do my job and earn a living. It has impacted my relations with friends and clients. It has been a dark stain that is still hanging over our community and frankly has been the darkest stain since Cornwall Police Officer Perry Dunlop and his family were threatened and forced to leave Cornwall. During that dark period of Cornwall history many on the police force left with the buzz being simply that many could not tolerate what they saw from within.
Of course the internet has changed the world since those many years ago. Today people from all over the world can view some of the hatred pouring out of the people of Cornwall. They also see that the voices of good people are silent. They are allowing that ugly reflection to show to the world.
And of course those are only the ones that post publicly. There are those that deal their poison from the shadows like a certain Federal MP hopeful.
Our leaders stand down; silent, while abuse occurs; while hatred is spewed.
I was involved in a story last winter involving Swastikas in CCVS high school. The issue wasn’t graffiti or even the swastikas as hateful a symbol as they were. The issue was that Principal Patricia Brown ignored a family member of Holocaust survivors three notifications over a period nearly stretching to a month.
The irony is that while I was eventually sued by the Upper Canada District School Board the VP who actually took charge and did the right thing the day that I attended the school has been promoted and Mr. David K Thomas; the man who led the School board and the man that threatened me while yelling on the phone, and was most likely behind the law suit has abruptly retired under a cloud of mystery.
The UCDSB has not taken any action after I filed my defense in Superior court months ago. The question was why would any suit be issued in the first place?
In life we sometimes have to make hard choices and stand up to bullies. We have to stand up to the ignorant, the petty, and the evil.
It’s not easy; but those choices we make; one way or the other colour our society.
Here in Cornwall choices have been made for generations that have led us into being a city of bullies and those afraid of bullies. The rare people that brave the bad guys become examples by the bad guys to keep the rest in line. We’ve seen it recently at City Hall with the abuse of the whistle blowers. We’ve seen it in the abuse of this newspaper and myself via Mayor Kilger’s three year boycott, and we are seeing it in the handling of these utterly ridiculous police charges and abuse by the crown in not resolving this and not dropping them.
A few months ago I sent out a letter to all of the MPP’s in Ontario except the one without email. I heard back from a few and some of the Conservative ones forced our MPP Jim McDonell to write a letter to the AG. That letter has not had any response in over a month from 720 Bay Street. None. No calls, no letters. In fact the current crown in Ottawa has actually made things worse as though punishing me for being public about a situation that no innocent person in this country should ever have to experience. She seems to be willfully ignoring the real evidence of the production order and dragging this on as long as possible. Frankly in my opinion she should be fired for her actions as should the crown she replaced, but I’m not a lawyer and the law is a funny language.
Sadly the laws of our land protect crowns from gaming the system and abusing innocent people at public expense. At the end of the day there will be some held accountable; but most likely the crown attorney’s will not. This case if anything shows how political our justice system is and that’s very scary.
I will continue my campaign for Mayor of Cornwall in spite of the dirty tricks and the alleged surprise I was told today was in store for me as it seems that there is a conspiracy afoot to have me arrested on live tv.
Now that’s scary.
I will be emailing those MPP’s again shortly and again ask for them to ask 720 Bay Street to open an investigation into this situation and sadly the conditions I’m under at the moment prevent me from even sharing what I believe the result of that investigation should be.
There are many many people watching this unfold. From places all over the world. I know there are good people in Cornwall and Ontario; but frankly it’s time for them to step up to the plate and start to do the right things.
And the first is for my charges to be dropped and those responsible held accountable. The sooner that happens the sooner our community can heal from this latest abuse and corruption.
