Claude McIntosh Does it Again – Will Councilor Rivette Respond to Political Hatchet Job?

CFN– Holy Gilles Latour Claude McIntosh did it again!    The victim of this week’s hatchet job is Cornwall Councilor Andre Rivette.   It looks like Claude and the Mayor must’ve had a few pops again and the sympathetic boyhood friend pulled out the poison pen and let go one.
