CORNWALL Ontario -About to be former councilor Glen Grant either has to have the biggest cojones on the planet or have some early dementia kicking in as he took his typical Glen Grant offense to someone; in the case Editor of the Standard Freeholder, Hugo Rodrigues.

Hugo published Grant’s letter.

Re: “Who advises vs. who decides,” Nov. 22, 2014.

Hugo Rodrigues owes an apology to the volunteers who are members of the 23 city boards and committees.

In the Nov. 22 editorial, Hugo insulted the members of these boards and committees by insinuating they did not follow the city’s procedural bylaw. He especially identifies the waterfront committee members, but does so without attending a single meeting.

Hugo states, “I’ve seen numerous examples where members of these committees mistakenly believe they are the ones making decisions.”

How is that possible with you do not personally witness these so-called infractions? If you didn’t see it in person, then it must be second-hand information or hearsay, which has as much credibility as your editorial comments.

Volunteers on these 23 boards and committees should be thanked for their service rather than unjustifiably criticized.

Glen G. Grant

Cornwall

It was vintage Grant.    I’m not sure if his head has been too far up MP Lauzon’s nether regions for too long or what, but this scribbler was there that day of the Waterfront Committee meeting, and Mr. Grant still hasn’t apologized for his antics that day including leading a vote to have CFN struck from the minutes as attending media.  Of course he didn’t apologize for putting his hand on Roland Besner during the election either.

 

Mr Grant nor anyone that voted in support of that amendment have not apologized to CFN or the community. As one criminal lawyer stated, that without media covering important events nothing is documented which is how Cornwall nearly ended up with a condo in the parking lot of the Civic Complex courtesy of Glen Grant and his committee.

Here is Mr. Grant leading the charge to move in Camera which was deemed illegal by Commish Stephen Fournier.

As you can see in the video it was Grant that posited and seconded the motion for the illegal meeting in spite of his years of experience.

Here’s the money shot from Grant showing his true colours.

They might have only had B&W tv’s and four channels when Glen was a tot, but he does know that video never lies, especially raw video as evidenced above.  Those are his words.    Sadly not a single member of the Waterfront committee has apologized to date for following Grant’s lead on either issue.

Here is Mr. Grant wrangling with Mr. Fournier at council.  At the 3:10 Mark Mr. Fournier schools Grant.

That’s why none of them should be allowed, including and especially Mr. Grant, to be on any committees this term of council and not until they’ve shown some improvement in judgement.

As for thanking, well his fellow board member Keitha Fisher was thanked with a lovely patronage gig from Denis Thibault at the EOTB where our tax $$$ will be spent after both were on the WFC.

Asked for comment, in particular about Glen’s shots Hugo Rodrigues responded via email; (Unedited)

While I did not specifically state in the column when and where I had seen committee members believing they had the power to decide, Glen Grant assumes it had to be in Cornwall. I’ve covered four other municipalities and two school boards where I’ve seen this in action. It was a fair comment based upon things I’d personally witnessed elsewhere and the very behaviour mayor-elect Leslie O’Shaughnessy had criticized within the waterfront development committee.

CAJ Prez Hugo Rodrigues

As to his opinion that one has to personally know, attend and witness with one’s own eyes and ears something in order to be qualified to comment on it? Many people have been able to educate themselves on an issue, form an opinion and express that opinion without having been ‘in the room,’ and without having a lifelong connection to any individuals involved.
