CORNWALL Ontario – What about Bob? Is he coming back? Is Cornwall turning into a George Romero movie?
Leslie O’Shaughnessy is one bad poker player.
In other media reports he stated that he had a legal opinion on his Conflict of Interest incident and that he’d be getting a second opinion.
Legal opinions are expensive. Generally you don’t go for a second unless you didn’t like the first. He also stated he’d be having a Press Conference with selected media specifically excluding the largest media outlet in this city, owned by yours truly. That conference never happened.
The municipal act clearly states that if you have an opening you run with someone that offered themselves for the office or call a by election. The city has generally followed that path.
Kilger rammed through a new procedural by law to change that (the Mark MacDonald by law) but many legal minds have said it would never pass the stink test and could cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars in court.
Bob finished second. The question has been his health. For example our t shirt law suit has been adjourned because of his health and if he’s too ill to attend court is he healthy enough to take on the role of mayor again?
Looking at the make up of this council and some of what’s gone on it’s a distinct possibility that Bob may be back as early as next Monday night’s meeting. He’s been seen in Cornwall recently and is getting an honourary plug at St. Lawrence College on Friday (For chem tanks and waterfront development? )
One source stated that one of the reasons that Brock Frost is stepping down is that Kilger would not have him on his council and wanted Denis Carr and one of his other stooges back, most likely Glen Grant.
Elaine MacDonald looks to be left out of the equation which would give her much more time to lobby for her favorite causes like the Agape Centre, flying kites, turning seniors apartments into condos, and destroying 33 year old public art galleries.
City Hall is staying mum as events unfold. It certainly has been an eventful first year of the term to date from the National exposure of shutting down a beautiful family ice rink at Christmas to the Brock Frost circus and other events.
In a normal situation none of this could possibly happen, but this is Cornwall Ontario we’re talking about so it’s probably already signed and delivered.
