Cornwall City Councillor Brock Frost has released a new video. It must definitely reassure the residents of Cornwall about his committment to the city, or maybe a few ideas and how to boost the local economy right? Wrong. It’s a grocery list of allegations which have allegedly been levied against him.
I’m a big believer of “innocent until proven guilty” and if there are no real charges then it’s rarely even worth a discussion. I’m not sure why Brock chose to post this video and what he hopes it will achieve. Only he knows that.
I could talk about the River Kings drama, or the Ottawa situation or maybe even the entire resignation journey but all that in my world is done and in the past.
Let’s look forward. Let’s get back to the task at hand, let’s deal with city issues and ideas to improve this great city we live in. This video could have been just that…letting the constituents who voted for him know that he is committed and is ready to get back to work and put all that behind him.
Instead it appears he has or will start an organization (Canadian Organization Against Libel and Slander) for people who have been wrongfully accused and will lobby to update or change libel and slander legislation and the Canadian criminal code.
It’s time to put the focus back on the city and the work that needs to be done here.
