CORNWALL Ontario – Bob, Bob, Bob. It’s time to hang it up. I know the buzz is your busy helping the Feds dump the harbor properties on we poor taxpayers of Cornwall. I get it when you sleep more nights away from Cornwall than here that you can lose your priorities. Your […]
Should Mayor Kilger & Councilor Grant Resign Over Mayhem at Waterfront Committee Meeting in Cornwall Ontario
CORNWALL Ontario – Mayor Bob Kilger of Cornwall Ontario did it again. Rumors are that the local Corus Radio station and he are not on speaking terms because of a staffer that let him have it on his last day. ERIC SPENCE STORY Bobby holds grudges. He loves to spend city dollars on his […]
Mr. Lauzon, I would like to thank you for doing an outstanding job in representing your riding here in Cornwall. When we were challenged with what we had initially perceived as a terrible infliction, “Chemical Tanks on our Cornwall Waterfront” you stepped right in, investigate and quickly and clearly shared your findings with […]
CORNWALL Ontario – Team Cornwall held its annual AGM. Team Cornwall President Gilles Latour, who doesn’t reside in Cornwall; but in nearby Long Sault in South Stormont led the way in ….what I’m not sure. Other media headlines stating “Dozen’s Attend Team Cornwall AGM” are surely not something to be proud of. Gone are […]
CORNWALL Ontario – The Free Holder has a new Editor; one Hugo Rodrigues. He recently wrote about the Chem Tanks. It’s always interesting reading another perspective; but any perspective has to be clearly based on the facts. Has Mr. Rodrigues, as the Editor of the TC Media owned Seaway News Todd Lihou been giving Mayor […]
11th Councilor by Jamie Gilcig- Circus Over Freeholder Story on MacDonald Lauzon Resignation Suggeston
CFN – The circus that has become the Chem Tanks plunked on our waterfront by Trillium Distribution Cornwall Inc. has taken a bizarre turn. Mark A MacDonald who is running for council suggested that Council demand that Guy Lauzon resign. It makes for great filler on a slow news day; but is quite bewildering? What’s more […]
Mark A MacDonald Alleges Cornwall Ontario Being Bullied By Federal Government Over Chem Tanks on Waterfront
Greetings MP Lauzon: Further to my email to you last week, take notice that I am still waiting to hear from you, when will the chemical tank farm be removed from our waterfront? Construction at the site continued all weekend despite city issued “Stop Work Orders” and continued widespread public calls for work to stop. […]
CORNWALL Ontario – Mark A MacDonald likes to throw around the term Occupy or Occupy Cornwall. Who can blame him. We all like to have some bad ass street cred; but frankly this gerrymandering about the Chem tanks is creating support for the bad guys. If you believe the spin the entire City of […]

Kilger Council Fails – Trillium Distribution Cornwall Inc. To Resume Construction of Chem Tanks – March 31, 2014
CORNWALL Ontario – Unsurprisingly work recommences at the Trillium Distribution Cornwall Inc. site. Despite rallies, petitions and a clear message to the politician’s our voices have gone unheeded. At root is Mayor Kilger and Council’s refusal to speak to the issue of the Mayor’s press release which confirmed communication to CFN from Transport Canada; that […]
Is the Fix In as Council Give Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger Signing Rights Over Harbour Lands by Jamie Gilcig
CORNWALL Ontario – While Mayor Bob Kilger and his council in Cornwall can spin the current discussions with the Federal Government over the Harbour lands, the bottom line is that council gave a green light with a 8-1 vote (councilor Samson was in Florida again) for the Mayor and Clerk (herself a lawyer) to sign […]
11th Councilor – City Hall Needs to Come Clean on the Chem Tanks as 1 Month Adjournment Announced by Jamie Gilcig
CORNWALL Ontario – City Hall here in Cornwall just issued a release stating that Trillium Distributing Cornwall Inc. is going to halt for a month while ongoing talks continue. Frankly that’s frightening. The Mayor and Council have still refused why Economic Development knew about the project starting in February 2013. Council has not brought […]
11th Councilor by Jamie Gilcig – We need more truth in Waterfront Negotiations between Kilger Council, MCA & Feds
Should any deals be made before the 2014 Municipal Election?
CORNWALL Ontario – Cornwall’s waterfront is in play. The Chem tank situation is the Canary in the Coal mine and now our Mayor is at play with the Federal government. Akwesasne is involved is well. What should be alarming to the public is that this is all being conducted behind closed doors in an […]
The colossal mistake of building chemical storage tanks on our waterfront is a prime example of a city council lacking clear direction, which I must take some responsibility for. We desperately need a city council that can focus on an agenda that will bring some meaningful progress to our city. Resignations, criminal charges, huge payoffs and secret […]
Mark A MacDonald Doesn’t Believe Cornwall Officials Were Powerless Over Illegal Chem Tanks on Waterfront – Letter to the Editor
Are you kidding me, city officials are powerless to stop the construction of the illegal chemical storage tanks that are being built on our waterfront! This is insane. The company ignores the “Stop Work Order” and they forge ahead with the tank farm. If an ordinary guy ignored an Order, he would have been […]
11th Councilor – Is Bob Peters Going to Get Mark Boileau’s Job for Rigging the Chem Tanks on Cornwall’s Waterfront?
CORNWALL Ontario – The buzz around City Hall via the Chem Tanks is that shortly Economic Development head Mark Boileau will be shifted out into Stephen Alexander’s gig, and that Bob “Vienna Sausage” Peters will take over the department. Now of course this is rumour and speculation; but it sadly is almost believable based on […]
11th Councilor – A Wake Outside of the Chem Tanks in Cornwall Ontario – Press Conference at City Hall 2 PM Thursday Feb 20, 2014
CORNWALL Ontario – Humility can be a great lesson. What we are learning today as Transport Canada and the Federal government allowed Trillium Distribution Cornwall Inc. to pour concrete and finish their Chemical tanks on our waterfront is that when you don’t work together you lose. In this case our community loses. It’s […]
