What happened to that place? I walked by there a few days ago and it's empty and for lease. I wonder what the final straw was. Is she in jail yet?

Does anyone know what her sentence was for the plane threat. It couldn't have been much if she is already back in Ottawa spreading her hate again.

Glad to see that the dumb byatch got what she deserved. She's been screwing people in Ottawa for at least 15 years. She's a professional scammer, who knows how to manipulate legal situations and police because she's been in so many - practice makes perfect. I had a private detective call me a couple years back saying that she had put a friend of mine on a "hit list". I'm not sure what keeps the internet cafe open - since she owes so many people money on a regular basis. Good work on this site and keep it alive - people need to know what she is like. Has she been convicted of harboring the attempted murderer? I guess she just wanted to protect one of her good friends from the sewers.

I just came accross this site. I too worked at the internet cafe, although it was only for 2 weeks. I, like others here, took the job thinking it would be good since I could study at the front desk while working. But I had a very bad feeling about the place after being there for only a couple of shifts, so I immediately decided that I would work until my first pay and then get the hell out of there. I worked there during the period of time in which Lori was in jail for the threats, etc. I heard many a horror story while I was there and decided that I really did NOT want to meet this woman. Her lunatic friends came in every so often - clearly high out of their minds and often screaming about money being owed them, etc. And I just wanted to add to this discussion that I really think her parents are completely corrupt as well. Because they liked me when I was working there, they would frequently tell me things like, "_____ forgot to get paper for the machine! Well, that's coming out of his pay!". I was so relieved to get my money and get out of there! And might I note that they paid in cash, so that we "wouldn't have to worry about taxes". They always talked about all the employees who had "stolen" from them...but it was clear to me that any stealing was done because people were not being paid. It was one of the most shady places I have ever witnessed and I was completely uncomfortable with everything about it.

I worked at AE Micro for just 2-3 months, it was the worst employment I ever had. I was witness to numerous illegal activities, and was even scolded when I turned away someone I suspected of selling stolen DVD's...they were, but how was I to know that Lori wanted to buy them? After working at a very reputable company as a secretary for 5 years, the disorganization and shoddy business I witness while I worked there was appalling! I spent most of my time on msn talking to my friends! I witness half naked women, cutting them selves while stoned on crack in the bathroom, I was told to invest in retirement plans that involved buying acres of hardwood trees, and I had to deal with conflicts with paying customers on a continual basis. Lori scared the shit out of me personally, and I was so glad to be outta there even though I had to fight for every cent I was owed! After being there and witnessing that I was one of the most hardworking, honest employees they had it made me very angry that they would try and cheat me my wages. I probably saved them more money by simply counting my till correctly and not stealing from them! In conclusion this was the worst job I ever had, and I am so sorry for the people who were there when this terrible stabbing happened. It serves her right, and I hope that you guys all get outta there as fast as possible.

I just called and told them I quit. I'd been working there since mid-October. As a student, it was a great job since I could study and I had previous IT experience so it was a cake-walk. SWAT did raid the place, but I wasn't working. That should have been my first clue to get out. Needless to say, I won't be going anywhere near there again.

Well - it does not surprize me hearing about Lori and knifing at the cafe. I thought she might grow up and learn a lesson (well deserved) by causing the aircraft to return to Pearson two years ago. I worked there back in 2002 and there were many horror stories about her not paying me on time - wrong amounts on cheques, all the B.S. that everyone goes through. Well - she fired me for "insubordination" (what a joke) - I filed a complaint wth the Ontario Labour Relations Board. There was an investigation - she was order to show up and produce files for wages etc., Of course - she is so spoiled by her parents who bail her out of EVERYTHING, she did not respond. Well - guess what -- they FINED HER $750.00 on 23 February 2003. ITS ABOUT TIME someone finally made HER pay for her gross behaviour to MANY MANY employees who could not fight back. She picked the WRONG PERSON to screw with. And she tried to appeal it - saying she was out of the country when they served the papers on the internet cafe. Of course SHE LOST and had to pay. Finally - fairness to at least one of her employees. And I worked with John and Keri . Imagine trying to have employees break the law - to satisfy her needs! She gives a whole new meaning to the word "idiot" . I hope she goes to jail this time - for breach of the last recognizane in the airplane episode. SHE DESERVES JAIL TIME! Lots of love Lori - your 'retributive justice' employee, Rod

I've never 'worked' for the moron, but I've encountered her at the 'cafe' after meeting her in a social setting. I witnessed her negotiating with an employee to pay her $5 per hour so she could work 'under the table'. I've also witnessed her on several of her maniacal whirlwinds. What a fucking moron. at one point, a police officer from the Hull department entered the store wanting to speak to the owner about an issue. I've never seen anyone look so 'deer caught in the headlights' in my life. He wanted info about someone who might have used the computers in the cafe. The guilty look on Lori's face screamed 'put the cuffs on me, I'm 100% guilty'. I wondered what she was feeling guilty about. As for asking people to commit grand theft auto, I know you FRY and I have no doubt she asked you to do it. The woman is whacked!

I worked at A&E for about 5 months and yes she 'dicked me around with the pay cheques when she was managing the place...luckily I was working for her parents most of the time. Karma/stupidity caught up with her. She just got out of jail for reporting a false bomb threat on her trip to Mexico (she is out of her fucking mind!!!). I can't believe that there is a site dedicated to her nonsense and that she has been in business for this long: unbelievable.

The Internet Cafe. I remember it well. Working for an unstable employer is difficult, stressful, and depressing. The shady business with the Night Watchman/Local Drug Dealer (ie: driving him to various places for vaguely defined purposes) was absolutely ridiculous. I knew the job was worthless when I first began and ended up performing a job 1) I wasn't hired for, and 2) doing it for much less money. It's rather interesting how employees only last about 3 months before they are fired on a whim or paranoid delusion. Luckily I quit before I could be litegated for some imaginary infraction.

As I said, I would be manager for a short time - and that time has now passed.  Friday I showed up to drop off a network card I borrowed and to collect my pay.  I entered my upstairs office (using my key) and proceeded to try to see who I could get to work the midnight shift.  Then Lori called and spoke with Jon who was working at the front cash.  Lori told Jon to call the police on me, as I was not to be in my office.  Jon did not call the police, but he mentioned this to me.  I then spoke with Lori and she said she had personal things in my office, and she didn't want me there.  I explained I was just trying to staff the overnight shift, so she said "No problem - sorry I was listening to people and...just forget it - go on with what you were doing".  I then decided that it was time I resigned.  I took my pay ($300 is all I received each week, plus $70 meal allowance).  So I took my $300 and left my invoice signed (paid) with Jon at the front cash.  On the way out, I used my cell phone to call Lori, and I resigned.  Later that night I got an email from Lori stating that by taking my pay I has 'betrayed her trust'.  Imagine that - just by taking my pay that I earned (and note I worked 7 extra shifts at cash that past week!), she CALLED THE POLICE to report I stole my pay!  I was pretty shocked!  But I called the police and they informed me that as I was the manager, had the key, and had always taken my pay every Friday, there was no case.  Well, I hate to leave the staff alone there with her, but I had no choice.  Good luck to them - they will need it!

Recently I accepted the mgr.job at the cafe (Dec.8) and have since been doing what I can to ensure the staff are treated very fair.  I wont be there for long, but while I am things will done right.  Most importantly, Lori has say in payment of bills, but while I am there NOBODY is permitted to deal with my staff but myself.  And yes we know all about the past and take it seriously.  However as nobody but myself is managing the store presently, we don't have to deal with any crap.  So you have my word that as long as I'm managing, you will be treated with respect as a customer or staff.  And feel free to call 230-9000 and ask any staff member off the record what they think of me.  I am their firewall - they dont have to deal with the crap.  I don't have control over the T4s, etc. but I do ensure everyone working for me gets paid and have a good working environment.  But after I leave sometime in the near future, you may want to look at the new management after me, and carefully consider if its a suitable work environment.  Note, all of us working at the AE Internet Cafe do it for our own experience in the field, and none of us intend to remain for a long time.  Most importantly, by my managing the place, I ensure many good people have jobs that they enjoy.  I do my best to provide for a healthy work environment.  If I'm there, you have my word I will do my best to treat you fairly and protect you from any harsh environments.  - Terry

Hey man,

I just read your internet cafe horror story. Thanks! When I first finished school I was offered a job there, but I never called back to schedule
an interview. At the time, I had a bite that was more interesting. well, that prospect went sour and I've kind of regretted not taking the Internet 
cafe job ever since. Not anymore. Now I can clearly see that I've dodged a bullet. 
Again, thanks! :)

I don't know if it was you that worked for Lori McConkey at AE micro, but by God man, I completely agree. Did you know she asked me to 
commit grand theft auto for her? With her crank dealer? And she was going to pay me 60 dollars.. Sacrement, this woman needs a wake up call 
from the cops.
