Whistleblower responds to report


The following statement was issued by Cornwall whistleblower Diane Shay in re- sponse to the Fournier report. As the public are aware, the City was con- victed for illegal retaliation against me in October 2011 in relation to resident abuse at the Lodge. The City Council was then investigating for answers as to why the three members of senior management of the City had par- ticipated in illegal retaliation, causing legal defence costs of $200,000 and payment of a fine. As Mr. Fournier’s report reveals, during the course of Council seeking answers, two whistleblower complaints (one of which was mine) were filed directly to Council. Every aspect of the whistleblower complaints was withheld from the public. Since the public were not noti- fied, the employees of the City were also not made aware. The decision of City Council to not tell the public anything about the complaints, and todeal in camerawith everything about the complaints (including their existence) was entirely discretionary. Total secrecy was not mandatory, as Mr. Fournier has found. City Council withheld all information from the public. Mr. Fournier has only limited powers of recommendation, but he recommends that Council consider that the public had the right to know or at least receive some form of notice about a whistleblower com- watts per month will see its monthly invoice increase by $2.52. Pescod attributed the increase to the long-term wholesale electricity supply con- tracts with Hydro Quebec. “Like all other utilities in Ontario, the wholesale cost of electricity in Cornwall is passed through to customers.’ “The long term contracts with Hydro Que- bec provide security of supply and rate sta- bility to December 2019,” said Pescod. “Cornwall Electric rates continue to com- ated with the low-level bridge project, the city is warning motorists. Through traffic will be detoured via Cum- berland Street and Second Street during the work period. The area will remain open to local traffic only for resident’s access to properties within the closure area, where construction activities permit. The section of the recreational path near the bridge construction site is expected to remain open during this period, but could change subject to construction activities.

plaint being under investigation. The information that is revealed within Mr. Fournier’s report could have been made available to the public, as it was hap- pening. As the reports verify, both whis- tleblowers asked City Council on July 30, 2012 to amend the whistleblower policy to notify the employees about the inves- tigation and appointment of investigators, and to put witness protection protocols into place, along with staff training. Also

The city was right to conduct discussions about two whistleblower cases behind closed doors, the city’s closed meeting in- vestigator has ruled. Stephen Fournier made the ruling in a re- port to be presented during a special public meeting of city council on May 7. “It is the investigator’s opinion that council’s actions to preserve the confidentiality of the pro- cess were warranted in this case.” But Fournier also ruled that the city was too vague in its description of the issue is used to warrant discussing the whistle- blower issues in closed session. “In the opinion of the investigator, the term “personnel matters” it is so broad that it lacks the general degree of specific- ity contemplated under the procedural re- quirements of Section 239 of the Act .” He suggests future agendas of closed sessions dealing with whistleblower com- plaints actually note that council note in its resolution that it is move in-camera to discuss a “confidential report relating to the city’s whistleblower policy.” “The confidential report/discussion was often referred to as a Confidential (Report)- Personnel Matter(s) in the resolutions of the open council meeting to move in camera . “The matters that were discussed in the closed sessions from June11, 2012 to Febru- ary 19, 2013, and the grounds cited for do- ing so were appropriate under Section 239 of the Act ,” wrote Fournier in the conclusion of his report.

in July both Whistleblowers waived the need to keep their identity anonymous so that employees could be notified. It would have enhanced the investigation process, if the public were aware of the ex- istence of investigations and could supervise Council’s ac- tions. The public could have questioned the powers (or lack thereof) of the investigators,

and could have monitored to ensure there were no more allegations of retaliation against these or other employees of the City. If there had been public notification, City employees would have felt the pro- tection of City Council and the public for the purposes of giving their evidence in such difficult circumstances. This is the second report of Mr. Fournier in relation to closed meetings of Council following the conviction of the City for il- legal retaliation in October 2011. Answers pertaining to that conviction have still not beenprovided to the public by City Council. pare favorably to surrounding electrical utilities,” he added One silver lining in the rate increase is that eligible Cornwall Electric residential and small business customers will continue to receive the Ontario Clean Energy Ben- efit that will save customers 10 per cent on electricity costs. Pescod also is reminding customers that Cornwall Electric customers are not subject to the debt retirement charge that users of Ontario Hydro must pay.

Gisele said there were bamboo curtains at the back of the residence which were quick- ly engulfed in flames. “It was like throwing a match into hay,” she said. City fire officials wrapped up their investi- gation late Thursday. They are listing the cause of the fire as “undetermined”, according to acting fire chief Richard McCullough. Jonathan and Gisele are staying at the home of Gisele’s sisters in the meantime. Gisele had just last her husband and was hoping that the urn containing his ashes was still intact. The urn was later recovered for her by fire- fighters. RE/MAX CORNWALL REALTY INC.


A resident at a housing co-operative in Cornwall’s north end believes a Wednes- day night fire that gutted the home oc- cupied by he and his mother was deliber- ately set. “My house got torched,” Jonathan Briere told The Journal during an interview at the scene of the blaze. “So if I put it bluntly, I got burned down last night.” Briere woke his sleeping mother, Gisele, and fled the townhouse at the Royal Oak Housing Co-op at 708 Twelfth Street East after he saw a flash and then flames at the back of their unit. “I turned my head and it was lit up, and I

displaced Kashechewan elders in different communities can connect with their leader- ship and support agencies. Canadian Red Cross has established a Central Registration Bureau hotline where Kashechewan residents can call in and lo- cate community members. The number is 1-855-797-8875. Emergency Management Ontario is cur- rently working with a number of Northern Ontario communities that are facing flood- ing challenges as a result of rapid snow melt and rainfall. The City of Cornwall will be entering into an agreement with Aboriginal Affairs & Northern Development Canada for full cost recovery for the event. AANDC has deployed a representative to Cornwall to assist with expenditure ap- provals and to work with the City and the Kashechewan residents. At approximately 10 a.m. on Sunday, May- or Bob Kilger declared a state of emergency for the City of Cornwall to serve as a host community for the evacuees.

The City of Cornwall was expecting to receive approximately 160 additional Kashechewan residents Monday who have been temporarily relocated from their Northern Ontario community due to flooding concerns. They were to join the 187 evacuees that arrived in Cornwall on Sunday. Six airplanes carrying evacuees were ex- pected to arrive at Cornwall Regional Air- port this past Monday afternoon, with the first flight scheduled for 12:30 p.m. A total of approximately 350 evacuees will be staying at the Nav Centre along the St. Lawerence River in Cornwall’s east end for the duration of their stay. It is unknown at this time exactly how long the Kashechewan residents will be staying in Cornwall. Operations on the ground in Cornwall have been orderly with no major issues. Evacuees are acclimatizing to their new ac- commodations and a number of agencies are working with appointed Kashechewan liaison officers here in Cornwall.

Consolidated Bottle cheques ‘not a windfall’, police warn

To the editor:

ers too—despite Conservative pledges to never introduce an “iPod tax.” Other tax hikes in the federal budget—on everything fromhospital parking to life insurance—will cost Canadians hundreds of millions more. Incredibly, the Conservatives deny up and down that they are raising taxes—as if your wallet somehow just gets lighter all on its own. Their dishonesty is disproven by all the rev- enue booked in their own budget numbers. Canadians understand that governing sometimes requires difficult choices. But Mr. Harper might find that when Canadians can’t count on their own Prime Minister to give them the straight goods on taxes, they start looking for someone who can. liamentary mailing and printing privileges to put their ugly message in taxpayer-fund- ed pamphlets to be distributed across the country. This is a gross misuse of tax dollars that should be going toward constructive public discussion of public issues, not par- tisan character assassination. At least 19 Conservative backbenchers have had the courage to reject this wasteful and dishonest abuse. They say it’s beneath their standards. But what about your MP? Mr. Lauzon has a choice—he can choose to say no to Stephen Harper and refuse to clutter your mailbox with this abusivemate- rial, or knuckle under. Which will it be? Wayne Easter,MP Liberal Party of Canada

Canadians should get ready to pay more for everyday goods. Prime Minister Harp- er and the Conservative government is imposing a tax grab on families by hiking tariffs on everything from coffee makers to bicycles. A tariff is a tax, andmany of the goods sold in Canadian stores come from countries that will soon get caught up in higher tariffs when they are brought into Canada, raising prices. Costs for baby cribs, vacuum cleaners, bar- becues and more will go up by an average of 3%. All in all, it amounts to a $330 million a-year tax grab from families struggling to make ends meet. It will drain our businesses and drive consumers across the border. The measures also hit digital music play- Word is out that Conservatives plan to use your tax dollars to mail their juvenile pro- paganda against Justin Trudeau to your home. Will MP Guy Lauzon sink to that level? The answer is in the mail. By now you’ve probably seen the TV com- mercials. In them, the Conservatives use out-of-context fabrications and falsehoods to try to smear the new Liberal leader. Lib- erals instead are responding with a positive campaign that introduces Canadians to the real Justin Trudeau, focused on his plans to fight for middle-class families and for all those who are working so hard to join the middle-class.

Colts lose heartbreaker in Fred Page semi-final

their rivals across the water with a –surprise 3-2 upset of the Capitals Friday evening. The Bearcats went on to beat theWestern Capitals by the same score in the Fred Page Cup final, but it took an extra frame for the Cats to dispatch their rivals in the game to determine who plays in the national cham- pionship for the RBC Cup. The Colts once again proved they could match the Capitals defensively, but could not get the puck past veteran Capitals net- minder Kevin Baillie who wrapped up his fifth season this weekend behind a team full of 20-year-old veterans. JP Harvey scored the game winner off the faceoff for the Capitals at 3:55 of the first overtime period on a set up by Danny Chi- asson to give the Western Capitals the their second 1-0 win of the tournament over the Colts. JamesEdwardson,whogotthestartforthe Colts after replacing the struggling Jordan Piccolino in net against Longueuil the previ- ous day, stopped 27 of 28 shots in the loss. The Colts made it into the semi-finals with a riveting come-from-behind victory against

But the Colts rebounded with two goals in the second period, to climb within one goal of Longueuil and then two more, in- cluding the game winner by Mitch Zion with less than eight minutes left in the third to hang on for the victory. Zion led the Colts with two goals while Michael Pontarelli added one goal and one assist. Piccolino who had struggled after a strong performance in the Colts open- ing game against the Western Capitals, was replaced by Edwardson after 38 minutes between the pipes after let- ting in four goals on just nine shots. Alexandre Lemieux opened the scoring with an unassisted market at 4:36 to give College Francais a 1-0 lead. Domenico An- tonacci scored at 11:03 to extend the lead to 2-0. Alli scored 26 seconds later at 11:29 But Marc-Olivier Phaneuf scored a short- handed marker at 17:09 to increase the lead to 3-1 and Connor Gagnon scored at 19:24 to widen Longueuil’s lead to 4-1 after the first period. Zion on scored on the powerplay at 4:15 into the second to cut the lead in half at 4-2 and Pontarelli scored an unassisted goal 34 seconds later to initiate the Colts; come- back. Alexandre Gendron scored at 3:08 in the third to tie the game at 4-4 and then Zion scored the game winner on the powerplay at the 12:48 mark to ad- vance his team to the semi-final game.

The Cornwall Colts squeezed into the Fred Page Cup semifinals with a comback win against Longueuil, but, for the second time in a row, couldn’t squeeze the Mari- time Hockey champions. The CCHL champions lost a heartbreaking 1-0 decision to the Summerside Western Capitals of P.E.I in the Fred Page semi-final Saturday evening, ending their captivating post-season run. The Colts had just come off an exhila- rating come-from-behind victory against College Francais de Longueuil on Friday afternoon to earn a last minute berth into the semi-finals. But they probably weren’t expecting it would be the Maritime cham- pions they would be facing in the semis.

It was a must-win game for the Colts, who were winless com- ing into their final round-robin game of the tournament against after being routed 6-2 by the Bearcats on Thursday evening. The Colts outshot Longueuil 12-11, but found themselves trailing 4-1 heading into the dressing room – Khalid Alli had the only Colts’ goal -- after a dismal first period hauntingly similar to the one just a day ear- lier in their loss against the Truro Bearcats. Colts goaltender Jordan Piccolino and forward Mitch Zion chat in this picture from the CCHL playoffs. The two players’ Fred Page Cup performances were a con- trast in opposites. Piccolino was pulled in the last game of the round robin and watched back up James Edwardson play in Saturday’s semi-final. Zion, mean- while, shined offensively and was the only Colt named to the tournament’s all- star team.

ACTUALITÉ Le Speedway a son Talk show

Dans son intervention devant le parterre de journalistes venus assister à la con- férence de presse, Scott Hanton, directeur de la course a indiqué, entre autres, que celle-ci s’ouvrira par la série Canadian Na-

tionals pour les modifiés-358. Et déjà, les amateurs du Cornwall Motor Speedway, dont la directrice générale est Carol Morin-Flanagan, n’hésitent pas à pa- rier que les absents auront vraiment tort.

spectateurs. Or, témoigne l’organisateur de l’événement, ils étaient tous venus pour courir.» Ainsi, pour donner une chance aux nou- veaux, le promoteur a dû scinder la caté- gorie des Sportsmen en deux, avec, d’un côté, les experts et de l’autre les novices, qui pourront de ce fait, rester plus longtemps dans la compétition. L’autre nouveauté concerne l’aspect mé- diatique de la manifestation qui prendra les allures d’un véritable Talk show, à travers des entrevues en direct. Les animateurs Bri- an Mulligan et Hugh Primeau vont décorti- quer l’actualité du sport automobile dans la région en compagnie des commanditaires et des pilotes. Ce programme d’une durée de 30 min- utes sera aussi une rétrospective des faits marquants de la course automobile au cours des sept derniers jours. M. Morin reconnaît qu’il s’agit là d’une grande innovation et annonce, par ailleurs, «des prix fort intéressants à gagner» et l’arrivée de nouveaux partenaires.


Le promoteur du Cornwall Motor Speed- way, Ron Morin, a présenté les détails de l’édition 2013 de la course automobile qu’il organisera dès le 19 mai et les nou- veautés qu’il pense y apporter. Lors d'une conférence de presse le 1er mai au restaurant Au Vieux Duluth, M. Mo- rin a indiqué que son souci constant était d’innover à chaque saison afin de rendre la compétition la plus intéressante possible pour les spectateurs et les concurrents. Dans la catégorie Sportsman, il a noté une augmentation rapide du nombre de pilotes, qui pourrait atteindre 30 cette année. «C’est beaucoup et il faut les séparer, ce qu’on ne faisait pas dans le passé. Avant, on prenait les vainqueurs et les perdants rentraient à la maison ou devenaient des

ont eux-mêmes achetées. Ça les intéresse, et leurs amis seront aussi de la partie pour former une belle et grande famille», se ré- jouit le professeur qui se souvient d’Alain, de François, de Jean-Michel, de Jérôme, d’Anthong et de bien d’autres qui ont fréquenté son école. Le but du projet, le pilote inventeur ne s’en cache pas, c’est de lutter contre le décrochage, de garder les étudiants dans l’école et de les motiver pour qu’ils termi- nent au moins leurs études secondaires avec un diplôme en poche. L’enseignant en mécanique vise les cinq premières places au championnat du Corn- wall Motor Speedway. Depuis 2005, il a glané sur son parcours divers titres dans les catégories semi-pro, recrue et champion. Ces performances l’ont fait monter dans la cour des grands du Pro Stock où il n’entend pas jouer les seconds rôles. M. Lalonde a certainement tout pour être le super médaillé de l’auto; auto dans laquelle il a découvert l’antidote au décrochage sco- laire. vis-à-vis des patients. Elle avance que la maladie mentale survient généralement en réaction à des situations pénibles comme le deuil, la séparation, l’anxiété, la perte d’un emploi, etc. L’intervenante clinique à l’Équipe psycho-sociale de Stormont, Dun- das et Glengarry propose, pour éviter ce mal, de prendre soin de soi-même, d’avoir une bonne alimentation, une bonne nuit de sommeil, de faire du sport, bref de respect- er l’équilibre entre le physique, les émotions et le mental.


...c’est le moins que l’on puisse dire à en- tendre l’un des participants à la course automobile au Cornwall Motor Speedway. Marc Lalonde est enseignant de méca- nique à l’École secondaire catholique de Plantagenet. L’inventeur d’une voiture de course performante, dans les quatre murs de son atelier d’un village ontarien, promet de belles surprises sur le circuit cette année. Il a fait entrer ses élèves dans la course automobile en les associant à la fabrica- tion de son bolide nerveux, connu pour ses prouesses dans différentes épreuves. Un projet innovant dont les vertus péda- gogiques ne semblent pas encore démen- ties, huit ans après sa création. «Cette année encore, relate M. Lalonde, deux de mes élèves vont courir en semi-pro à Cornwall avec leurs propres voitures, qu’ils

Santé mentale sans tabou À l’occasion de la semaine nationale de la santé mentale, qui a commencé le 6 mai pour se terminer le 12 prochain, Heidi Pou- lin, intervenante clinique à l’Équipe psycho- sociale de Stormont, Dundas et Glengarry, nous parle de l’importance de cet événe- ment et nous aide à mieux aborder la ques- tion.

Les mathématiques en famille L’organisme Partir d’un bon pas a mar- qué, le 3 mai, la fin de l’année scolaire après les six semaines qu’a duré son programme Mathématiques en famille. Destinées aux enfants de quatre ans et à leurs parents francophones, les activités conçues par Chantal Quesnel et son équipe visent à susciter l’intérêt des participants pour les mathématiques dans leur vie quo- tidienne et à les familiariser avec les nou- velles terminologies. Selon les initiateurs de ce programme gé- néralement confié aux Centres de la petite enfance, «les parents peuvent montrer aux enfants les relations et les suites en mathé- matiques en jouant aux cartes pour mettre en pratique les habiletés fondamentales, en triant la lessive, les ustensiles ou l’épicerie, en trouvant des sujets de discussion mathé- matiques autour de la maison (promenades mathématiques) et en parlant des mathé- matiques dans le monde quotidien des en- fants.» Les différents exercices proposés par Par- tir d’un bon pas répondent à ce critère. Avec le bocal d’estimation rempli d’objets, les enfants apprennent à compter. Les belles histoires racontées sur la tanière d’un our- son et les boîtes vides leur permettent de connaître les formes et beaucoup d’autres choses. Les participants au programme Mathé- matiques en famille reçoivent, à la fin de la session, un certificat délivré par l’organisme. Le Centre d’éducation et de formation de l’Est ontarien (CÉFEO) souhaite rassurer sa communauté scolaire : les programmes offerts se poursuivent comme à l’habitude! À la suite de la décision du Upper Can- ada District School Board (UCDSB) de se retirer du partenariat, le CÉFEO, qui pos- sède des campus à Casselman, Rockland, Hawkesbury et Cornwall, tient à informer la population que tous ses programmes de diplomation et de certification offerts en français demeurent intacts. La décision du UCDSB n’aura aucun impact sur la qualité des programmes offerts présentement ou à l’avenir. De plus, le CÉFEO continuera d’offrir sa gamme de cours de plaisir et loi- sirs en français et en anglais selon les be- soins de la communauté adulte. Comme à l'habitude, le guide de programme sera distribué en août 2013.«Nous continuons d’offrir aux élèves de plus de 16 ans, ainsi qu’aux adultes, des programmes novateurs et flexibles touchant l’ensemble des con- naissances, des compétences et des valeurs nécessaires pour devenir des citoyens con- fiants, responsables et productifs au sein de la communauté», de souligner Roxanne Berthelot, directrice du CÉFEO. Le CÉFEO continuera d’offrir des programmes de qualité dans notre région
