Remember when Rick told Earl McRae of the Sun that Don Robertson, the great-great-grandson of John Robertson, the “founder” of Bells Corners, supported the concept of changing the name of Robertson Road to Lloyd Francis Boulevard?
It soon became clear that no such person exists and that Earl had caught Rick telling yet another whopper – it’s all documented here.
I blogged that Don Robertson had been found but I was only kidding.
Imagine my surprise when I saw an email from Don Robertson in my mailbox!
Not the fake Don Robertson that Rick invented, but a real Don Robertson, the chairman of National Capital Crime Stoppers.
It was a letter to his lawyer, congratulating her for sending me another letter threatening legal action if I don’t remove photos of Rick in jail taken by a Crime Stoppers photographer. Mr. Robertson mentioned that it was Lida Chiarelli who was pressuring Crime Stoppers to threaten me, and he hoped that Rick and Mrs. Chiarelli would be happy with the latest letter: “this should wrap the issue up once and for all.”
It’s nice to have confirmation that Rick and Lida are reading my blog. To be safe I removed the photos that belonged to Crime Stoppers from these two posts:
I don’t see the big deal with these photos – I’ve never suggested on this blog (not yet, anyway) that our councillor is a criminal or has done anything illegal (well, there was that “illegal” campaign contribution that he accepted, but all that has been cleared up and apologized for). Sleazy politics and backroom deals are not illegal in Ottawa (unfortunately).
