I would like to set the record straight regarding the chemical tanks on our waterfront. The federal government bullied the city of Cornwall and shoved that deal down our throats. At one point Councillor Rivette had even suggested calling in the army to stop them and now he is talking about rules when it comes to dealing with the feds.
The only rule in politics is that there are no rules in politics, especially when it comes to the federal government owing us money for the damage that they have done to our gorgeous waterfront.
Our city is in desperate need of cash and we need to use every angle possible to get extra money, without raising taxes. We are short over 5 million dollars in our capital reserves and now is the time to push the feds for help.
Mark A. MacDonald
Councillor, City of Cornwall
