  1. Something is wrong with the list, I don't see fe's second riches mans name on the list. Could this mean he's lying once again about how rich he really is? Lol

    1. Like I said: he's small potatoes in this scandal. He thinks he's in the inner circle but he's not. They just use him as their mouthpiece and let him take the flack. When the time comes, he'll be dropped like a rock. What then, Petey?

  3. Spread this on Facebook and post their pictures to the front page of all press the way pictures of the four appeared. Marina Butler just shot herself in the foot. Issue suit against the Ward 4 Councillor by hiding behind a patsy and then run against Hill in Ward 4.. That's ballsy even for her, She should be ruled ineligible.

    1. The person who wrote the above did identify himself as Howie. This whole plan to destroy four duly-elected councillors by a mayor-by-five-votes, a defeated councillor (Whitfield) and a non-elected official who defies scrutiny and even FOI requests as well as their funders is worthy of a criminal investigation. Will that happen? Probably not unless people demand it. Not likely to happen in this town where everyone is afraid.

    So there is 6 companies, people, and associated businesses that I and my business will never go to/work with again. I could care less who they support, or in this case, not support, but its the under-handed approach these people have taken, hiding behind an obvious pawn. Is this how they also do business?

    It boggles my mind that at a time when everyone is concerned about a lack of jobs and businesses closing that these people would jeopardize their own business (and their employees) by potentially alienating at least half of their clients/customers. In the end, what is this lawsuit really going to change?

    Then you have an owner of a mediocre restaurant who thinks he has all the answers to the worlds problem, meanwhile he is too arrogant to realize that he is part of the problem. No person who claims to be in it for the good of fort erie would constantly brag about how much money he has and or what 'people of power' he converses with. Just because someone eats in your restaurant, doesnt make them your friend or business associate. No wonder jarvis st is in the situation it is in, as much as I hate see it this way. Make that 7 companies and businesses I, and my business will ever associate with.

    Rant over...

    1. Well Said! We stopped going to that restaurant along time ago and are now adding a few other business to avoid to!

    2. It is unclear whether Howard Beattie and his wife have anything to do with the office supply store. You will notice that there was no indication of that on the list I published. It's bad enough these people contributed to this vexatious lawsuit. It is important for people to become aware that there was a plan, started directly after the election. Marina Butler's request for a compliance audit on John Hill was the start.

  5. I try to imagine how this might have all come about. Someone had to come up with the idea to file the conflict of interest suit. Then they had try to recruit and co-ordinate financiers and they all had to agree how to proceed. Do you think they sent them letters asking if they were interested in filing suit, or perhaps phone calls or a private meetings? They had to recruit a lawyer to handle all the details. Do you think they met as a group or individually? What did they discuss when they met? This is not something that happened on a whim. It was well orchestrated, detailed and financed. Could it be anything but a conspiracy?

    1. Very much one! It is also a conspiracy against the people that voted for these men.

  6. The list is impressive I used to buy ink and supplies from Beaties, they just lost another customer , Doug Martin was the guy that killed the Millers Creek marina Project by cancelling the trunk sewer line that was to go through that project, in fovour of the Frenchmans Drain project that does nothing for Crescent Park sewage woes.

  7. Not sure if impressive is the word...but I feel obliged to tell you that you are making a mistake assuming that the ink and supply store is involved It is not owned by the people you are thinking it is owned by. Please check your facts before making such an assumption. Hint: A simple google search by putting in a name and add Fort Erie to the search parameter will give you more current info.

  8. So Mr Thibert according to Shular's statement orchestrated the meeting with the lawyer & the signing of the affidavit's. Considering the issue regarding Salter was behind closed doors & the rules are pretty clear NO disclosure to anyone regarding any information discussed etc. So how is it that the "Puppet Master" aka Thibert was not only privy to the meetings & discussions but spear headed the complaints against the 4 councillors. Mr Thibert is NOT part of the Management of the Town hall & certainly should not be involved with a Human Resources issue. In my opinion he has broken the law & should be charged. The taxpayers of Fort Erie are the losers & now with the above list of contributors to this law suit against the 4 it certainly makes it clear who in fact runs the Town. Might I add that they have done just a fabulous job & the Town is Booming - NOT. Their interference may explain why industry isn't coming to Town, hard questions need to be asked & answered.

    1. Absolutely! Thibert should have nothing to do with a human resources matter discussed privately behind closed doors. Its none of his business! Yet it seems it is none of the taxpayers business how he spends THEIR money! Who DOES runs this town?

  9. I wonder what back scratching happened to buy the people here?? Or is it our Mayor and Thibert that have been bought?

  10. Oh and to you Ninja wannabes, Since when is asking a PUBLIC Servant a question and expecting an answer Harassment? The People being Harassed though were these our councillor's since 2010 ( these people even paid for a build board to harass them! ) Actually your Buddies Thibert and Whitfiled also Harassed,Ann Marie by when she was on council! Take of the Blinders People!! Thibert and his " Comrades "have been controlling this town for too long, trying to push around and eliminate those that disagree with them !

    1. The taxpayer funded lawsuit against me was also part of the plan. Things have been said about me and others on social media and blogs that are slanderous but we don't have access to the funds necessary to initiate lawsuits against these people.

  11. I think people here are starting to get just how deep rooted our degradation is here.

    There is A LOT more.

    This is only the the tip of the massive stinking iceberg that screws this town for their own selfish ends. This is most of the reason that FE is in such a state. My hat is off to THE FOUR for trying to turn this utter mess around.

  12. A recent article in a trade publication regarding the Fort Erie Race Track's support of Equilottery, track CEO Rick Cowan (often unheard of when Jimmie hogs the spotlight) was quoted. Perhaps, maybe, I hope, that Jim is finally getting put in his place which should be exclusively as the General Manager of the Fort Erie Economic Development and Tourism Corporation. As presented in the past three posts, Thibert has been involved heavily in the Conflict of Interest case against the four councillors.

  13. This is a blog that facilitates information about the real scoundrels, in the Town of Fort Erie, hats off to a very brave lady, Ms S Bowers , she who laughs last , laughs best, !! Sharon, you have done a great public service and the gal that has an unshaken belief, that goodness will triumph over evil. Thank you very much.!!!

  14. Will you please show excerpts from Steve Pessaro's sworn declaration? Let's see if he followed the deceitful underhandedness that his boss the mayor orchestrated. No viable harassment case by lawyer Heather Salter, just too many questions to hide behind any longer regarding that Bay Beach land possession, I guess.

    And how did he vote? I am wondering, if it was a 4 to 2, don't we already think that the four split their votes? I assume two wanted to take Heather's empty threats to court and the other two wanted to just show her to the door the fastest cheapest way possible. So, how then did Pessaro and martin vote? Did they IN FACT vote for the settlement that martin was indeed griping about? I want to know.

    How did Eddie Haskel [Stevie] vote? Our mayor wantabee.

  15. Second Porgeys opinion of the move to post true info the sheep paper would not even consider printing if its publishing life depended on it. A breakthrough for the rights of the public to see what is going on, and has gone on in the realm of legal backscratching and backbiting. The ninjaws as usual hide behind covered faces and branish weapons, thanking various people for financing what became a time consuming distraction when there are so many other things that urgently need attention. The George Babbit blog, (look up that parasite on Google), they should be calling themselves. A wise person once said, "be careful of what you ask for, you might just get it". Looks like the Ninjars have now implicated themselves by association. Should run a candidate . Their campaign slogan could be... "Id rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy", or something catchy like that.

  16. James Miller, multi million dollar fire Dec 27?? That James?? No sprinklers? Many valuable cars melted?? Wood interiors, not even a Halon fire supression system, (1970s tech). Smart guy. Could have been a contender. We can all learn from his mistakes, including the donations.

    1. not the first time. Go back a few more years to the very suspicious fire at the old Niagara Power Co building on Queen St. Was a bar in its final days owned by a couple people including none other. Beautiful building too. It's a crime with no statute of limitations.

    2. you want more dirt on how FE's so called First families operate when they are not trying to suppress the democratic process with their millions. Ask questions about the VIN tag swapping caper and hot cars coming down from Quebec. Local cops could not get to the" bottom of " at the time.

      FORT ERIE where if you're not dirty you're not anybody.

      (this is the cesspool that people like THE FOUR and Madam Editor swim in trying to turn the town around. Screw with these dirt bags and their sweet side deals and you have the soap opera of the last 4 years)

  17. Tomorrow, I will be posting Tim Whitfield's cross examination excerpts. It is quite interesting that Whitfield declined to bring forth a compliance audit request after he lost his re-election bid to John Hill in Ward 4. But he signed on to the conflict of interest suit against John Hill and three other councillors a couple of years later. He had declared he was out of politics. You'll see the arrogance and attitude that so endeared him to his constituents and what caused him to lose in a landslide. Oh course, Marina Butler caused the expensive audit which proved nothing. She has also supported the lawsuit and is now running for election in Ward 4. We hear that she may soon withdraw her name. Too close to the scandal.

  18. So our five vote Mayor has his financial backers for his hissy fit vendetta lawsuit to damage reputations of good duly elected Councillors.
    All because Tim Whitfield and Martha Lockwood lost their positions and by a large margin.

  19. It seems that there are some people that think it is perfectly fine for a Mayor and certain councilors that follow him and his buddy Jimmy Thibert directions, to provide information that happens behind close doors and is SUPPOSED to be kept there unless approved in council.

    Thibert is NOT a councillor nor is Tim Whitfield, for Doug Martin, Shular and I understand Pessaro as well, to be blatantly provided any information that was not approved is a Breach of Trust. Those that think this is ok, should asked themselves what other information from behind close doors meetings have these people also told their friends? If our x-lawyer "Salter" has also provided information that she signed a disclosure for is also in Breach, I wonder if her new bosses is aware of this?

    FYI, releasing these people's names who have PAID to further harassed our four councillors is NOT the same as those that donated money to help fight the OMB Decision and if you try to take those people to court to get that information you will lose! But your Lawyer will still get paid!

  20. Sharon, The Paladino/Speedway story seems to be very slow in coming to light; are you sure about this? Paladino in one of the horse track stories referred to the "NASCAR track"; perhaps he found out it wasn't.

    1. I have heard that the rumour is false about Paladino buying the CMS. My original source is adamant that he did buy it. Who really knows? maybe it is still being negotiated. Still not good news coming from Dubai about financing for anything. Seems the Mid East banking is in freefall.
