Cornwall Mentally Delayed Man Egged @ Dairy Queen 080518

Cornwall Ontario – The River City can be a boring place, but a familiar face so many know is Carl.

He’s mentally delayed, but loves to ride his bike all over the region ranging far out of Cornwall.

Besides his bikes he loves guitars.   When I had a store on Montreal Road he’d be a regular and would drive a hard bargain when he spotted some old radio he wanted.

Sadly, there are some less charitable and ignorant sods in this town and apparently they egged Carl while he was taking a break at the local Dairy Queen in broad daylight.

Carl does have a home, but many think he’s homeless because he spends his days, even in Winter, peddling around and living his life.   While many have no time for people like Carl, most smile and are friendly as he really is harmless.

They say a society is only as strong as its weakest link.   Egging someone like Carl is not something that should be tolerated and those responsible hopefully will be caught and held accountable.

There’s been no word if the CCPS were called or if surveillance cameras picked up the attack.

Hopefully Carl is ok.

We’re still waiting word from the CCPS to confirm that there was a complaint filed.


Desk Sgt Mark Anderson confirmed that there have been no complaints filed with the CCPS at this time nor has the Dairy Queen sent in any cctv footage.




  1. Just this afternoon I was telling hubby how society went to hell and when I fell on this column it showed exactly my feelings about this dirty low life society that hurts other people. I have seen some men in Cornwall who go all day on their bikes even to Long Sault and such places – nothing wrong with that and this disabled man wasn’t doing anything wrong and this happens.

  2. Jamie, fact is that Carl has a home but people find him sleeping at different places in the city from early morning to late evening. I’ve seen him cursing and swearing at people for no reason at all. His hygiene is also another reason some stores don’t want him in their stores. He should perhaps he in a group home where he can get proper care. I don’t like being negative but its facts.

    Pete I totally get it, but he his harmless and he does go when asked to. Believe me there are far more deserving people (like half of council) that should be in institutions. He’s not hurting people and part of me thinks he loves his freedom to be mobile and do as he pleases. I just don’t think he deserves to be egged or hurt. Whoever did this needs to be held accountable and watching the clique patting another clique member on the back because he tosses him the odd free breakfast frankly is appalling. Mr. Quinn should’ve called the police and turned over his CCTV footage. Apparently there’s been a lot of egging going on in Cornwall and this might be a part of whomever’s doing it.

  4. I would never egg him or anybody else and if I were to see anybody egg him or others, I’d step up and say something or do something. For the most part, he is harmless but I’ve seen get mad, cross and swear at people.

    I’ve seen a lot of people do those things. They all don’t require to be charged or put in an institution. You should see my recreational road rage at some of our local drivers 🙂

  6. This is simply unacceptable! People these days are horrible to people who seem different then themselves and take it upon themselves to justify it! This is a prime example of why I hate people! Every one he comes into Walmart’s he’s always polite and keeps to himself. Pete you’ve seen him when he’s had a bad day, does that mean you can critize and be little him?
    Don’t worry I’ll wait..
