Stanstead Town­ship - Hot meet­ing ex­pected tonight

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Stanstead Town­ship’s usual quaint meet­ing should be a dif­fer­ent thing tonight as le Jour­nal de Montreal and num­ber one French broad­caster TVA have had the mu­nic­i­pal­ity ‘in their sights’ over the last few days. At is­sue is the never end­ing con­struc­tion site of a multi-mil­lion­aire (this news­pa­per’s li­bel in­sur­ance is not enough to cover a law suit by this per­son so he will re­main un­named) that the news­pa­per and the news sta­tion have in­ves­ti­gated. The town is re­fus­ing to turn over, as is the law, the con­struc­tion per­mit in whole and the mayor is say­ing that the redacted ver­sion was done on or­der of the town’s lawyer. Asked by a reporter who they were, she re­fused to an­swer. For years, the town’s lawyers have been Monty Coulombe, now Monty Sylvestre, as nu­mer­ous ref­er­ences on the mu­nic­i­pal­ity at­test.

The meet­ing starts tonight at 7:00.
