Former Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger has had a busy week in the media. First the City releases the settlement with yours truly after he had me removed from a council meeting for not liking my t shirt and now Frank magazine has featured him after disclosing that Bob is now a Federal Lobbyist for Flagship Solutions.
Senior Partner Serge Buy confirmed with CFN that Mr. Kilger is working for the firm.
Mr. Kilger is indeed working with Flagship Solutions. We’re excited that Mr. Kilger is sharing his knowledge, experience and talent with our clients..Thank you,.Serge
A brief excerpt from the Frank story.
Bob’s bid for the Big Chair was also somewhat complicated by a historic sexual assault allegation. The complainant, who’d worked under the honourable member in the early 80s, when he managed the St- Hubert BBQ franchise in Cornwall, went to police with a sordid tale dating back to 1982..Mercifully, the Crown decided, based on the age of the claim and the serious he said/she said limitations of the evidence, against laying charges. That decision came down days before the Speaker elections, but Kilger still found himself pipped at the post by Madame Speaker Peter Milliken..No pension top-up, either, when Gus Clouthier’s gig as Sergeant-at-Arms came open in ’06. Bobsie put his name forward, once again citing his experience as a hockey ref, found himself passed over once again in favour of ex-Mountie Kevin “Killer” Vickers..Shurely playing no part in Kilger’s rejection by House of Commons thingies was his rather unpleasant encounter with the Board of Internal Economy a couple of years previous. Bob, it seems, had inadvertently filed amongst his expense claims rent payments on an Ottawa apartment for a female acquaintance whose name has been lost to posterity..A red-faced Kilger, ratted out by a disgruntled ex-employee, quickly cut a cheque for the difference, and thanks to the BOIE’s ultraquiet proceedings, neither parliament nor (heaven forfend!) the public were subjected to the details of the unfortunate error.
