Cornwall Memes Page Disappears from Facebook After Creator Claims Visit From Police – Nov 8, 2013

cwm5ACornwall Ontario – Cornwall Memes captured the interest of the region.   The childish, rude, and insulting Facebook page ridiculed City Hall, local schools, and the “Culture” and institutions of Cornwall Ontario.    The page drew over 5,500 “likes” in just one month eclipsing the actual City of Cornwall’s Facebook page.

cwm faveWhile CFN does not know the identity of the creator of Cornwall Memes we can confirm that via messaging through Facebook they confirmed that they had received a visit from Cornwall Police.    The Police did not have a name, but had simply followed up on the IP number that Facebook would have most likely given if an entity like the city had it legally attained.

Shortly after that conversation the page was taken down from Facebook.  We do not know if it was done by Facebook or voluntarily taken down; but many people are asking questions and wanting answers.

In the meanwhile a new page has been created.    LINK

Bring Back Cornwall Memes gives the public a chance to like the page and hopefully for the truth to be found out.

What do you think dear viewers of CFN?  You can post your comments below.

My question arising out of this story is…did intimidation win out over freedom of speech ?

I’ve never visited the site but the two pictures you show above would be enough for Facebook to delete the site based on their “Community Standards”, especially if they received enough complaints.

Really Roger? how did the 2 pictures above in any way contravene Facebook’s ToC?

@ Anon – ” how did the 2 pictures above in any way contravene Facebook’s ToC?”

Well there is a swastika on the arm of the person looking in the window in the teenage pregnancy toon. Oh wait, the school board doesn’t consider that offensive anymore so it doesn’t bread the “Community Standards”.

Dear Reg Facebook recently changed the rules and now allow videos of people being beheaded as long as the poster is using it to say they don’t like the practice BBC News ‎- 2 days ago A film of a woman being beheaded in Mexico caused an international outcry when Facebook refused to remove the offending footage So I guess making fun of Cornwall is worse than killing videos???????? The amount of info facebook collects about the people CRAZY enough to post their whole lives online makes the NSA look like inspector Clouseau Every time somebody gets arrested or in… Read more »

Really, Police were used to find a page on facebook? Wow, great use of the police and the tax payers money to work on this case.
Go Cornwall GO! Not.
What a waste. People need to get the stick out of their a**es and lighten the hell up.
I am sure there are WORSE things that a meme on facebook telling you what you already know about Cornwall.

FFS! SMH!

It isn’t easy to get an IP address But on TV show about Canada Border security…they show officers going thru cel phone and computers looking for info…..if you password protect your device they can’t force you to give it to them..but..they can seize your device This despite the fact the Canadian supreme court just ruled police need a warrant to go thru your devices Police entering a home with a search warrant have no right to examine any computers they find unless a judge has given them specific permission, the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled unanimously If they do… Read more »

LOL LOL. I have seen a write up that describes Cornwall to a T about teenage pregnancy and the young people and other things. I didn’t see any swasticas in this unless I missed something. I don’t use Facebook or any of that childishness so I don’t go there at all.

Jules, you really really really need a Facebook page. It would be a hoot!
We could be “friends”!

I’m not sure the type of content that was on this facebook page lately but if it contained material that was offensive to specific individuals (including peoples pictures taken) then it could have classified as hate speech or at the least offensive to the point where the individual being ridiculed would be in a position to ask the page owner to take the material down. If the page owner did not remove the offensive material or did not remove it in a timely manner than the person would be in a position to sue the posters and possibly the page… Read more »

admin November 8, 2013 at 1:36 pm Hey STF what if someone at City Hall used to work for a large successful Internet company? If they went from successful company to City Hall they would need more help than i can give them Even if the cops show up at your house they still have to try and prove WHO was on the computer Just remember KIDS if you have files you won’t gone….use a heavy duty file destroyer so you don’t get caught out like the guy with the deleted file of the Rob Ford crack video that they… Read more »

I agree with Tim Bradley about facebook making fun of people and ridicule and so much so that many young people are committing suicide. I too am a parent and wouldn’t want this to happen. I think that facebook should be abolished all together. Furtz I wouldn’t give you the opportunity of having me on facebook at all whatsoever. This world is in enough hell with that site on. I do not agree with any of it at all. I come on here and there are people who do not take me serious but more for entertainment. Well Furtz I… Read more »

Seriously though, the Cornwall Memes page was a hoot. The commentary and photos, though often crude, really hit home. The only thing I can think of that may have caused the page to be removed, were photos of a certain chipstand owned by a local man, known as a hebephile. There erupted several heated discussions involving him, his children and young girls who had worked for him. These arguments crossed the line in a big way, and would have been definite and justifiable grounds for removal of the page. It’s a pity, because the iconoiclastic posts were quite a hoot,… Read more »

No worries, Jules. Just joking about being “friends”.

Troll is probably correct Remember seeing all kinds of photos of the hotdog stand but didn’t take the time to figure out the story If you are accusing people of a crime….I can see why cops might come knocking Unless your Mayor Rob Ford and they see you exchanges packages with a known drug dealer.. Lawyer Clayton Ruby said cops should have got a warrant…taken a sample of the suspected drugs..tested them..then arrested the Mayor Really really wished they would have done that..because this guy is going to have a heart attack live on TV and I don’t wish this… Read more »

Furtz you are a young man and have a lot of life yet to live. I have gone through the ridicules in my day in school and I used to be a very shy person but I outgrew all of that shyness and learned to fight back. A lot of young people today are stuck behind the computer and know nothing at all about life and how to deal with others. I am getting old now at 62 years old and have many long years ahead of you. I used to be a little bit like you where I didn’t… Read more »

I think it was very nice of the Cornwall Police to take time out of the very busy and somewhat shady schedules to stop doing Police work and stop on someones Freedom of Speech. Does someones harmless opinion of their city (as many people feel the same) warrant a visit by the police? Is that truly a crime, let alone the crime we need them focusing on? Someone should tell them, there’s no bribe in that! Seriously, Maybe Cornwall should look towards improving their image, generate more higher paying jobs, create activities for the kids and help get the vast… Read more »

@ Jules. Don’t make assumptions. I’m retired, and old enough to receive old age security. Believe it or not, but you aren’t the only one around here who’s been around the block a few times.

Furtz the way you write I assumed that you were a young person in your twenties and thirties. You see Furtz when people blog and don’t know one another you cannot tell who is who and when people go on the likes of Facebook and other such nonsense and hurt others without knowing them then how do you think the other person takes that. I knew the people who hurt me in school but that is water all gone under the bridge as they say and life goes on. When people are so ignorant to trash others on the likes… Read more »

Is there ever any positive/good news that ever comes out of that city by the river? Surely, if all of this negative publicity the City of Cornwall experiences were just a run of bad luck, that bad luck would have run out by now.

Wouldn’t it have?

jules
Guest
Cory it is more than Cornwall just having bad luck. This kind of thing has been going on before I was ever born but nothing was publicized on TV or international news like what it is today. There has always been poverty and unemployment in Cornwall even when Domtar and Courthaulds and other industries were in full operation. The problem with Cornwall is that only certain people were employed in the mills and they were pulled in by their fathers and grandfathers throughout time and others were left at the wayside in life. Pedophelia exists in most places but Cornwall… Read more »

It’s doubtful that the police or any like authority were responsible … otherwise http://home.cogeco.ca/~vote/pageCorruption.html would disappear too.

@ Jules. A few days ago, you trashed EVERYONE who chooses to remain in Cornwall. How mature and thoughtful was that? And later you said that I have a lot of learning to do because I don’t share your religious views! And now you are suggesting that I am an immature senior, it seems, because I have a sense of humor and enjoy joking around now and then. From one senior (slightly older) to another, I offer this… Just because you’ve lived for sixty-two years, doesn’t mean you have automatically acquired infinite wisdom even though you might think you have.

Furtz I too love to joke around and believe me I joke a lot in my household. My children are so serious that I cannot joke with them at all and only with my husband when he is in a good mood or I try to put him in one. When it comes to strangers that I do not know then I am usually more serious except certain times. The young people in Cornwall have no future with industries all gone and yes they have to go and find work elsewhere. This is a worldwide catastrophe that we are facing… Read more »

Furtz there is something about me and that is I would not go and take pictures of a business and post it on the net whether good or bad since that would hurt that person’s business. I joke plenty about Cornwall and some of its people but would not hurt a business nor an individual unless I felt that I had to for a certain reason. I poke fun at Bare Ass and his gang (clique) since they are public figures and are crazy. I would not go and take an individual like yourself and put your picture and poke… Read more »

OK Jules. Let’s call a truce for now. All I ask is that you stop insulting me for not sharing your religious views. We all bumble through life as best as we can, and judging others based on your own personal life experience is way over the line and not appreciated.

Furtz I have absolutely nothing against you. I don’t know you at all personally nor anyone else here on the blogs. I always say what I think and feel and it may hurt some people at times but that is me. I remember the good days of Cornwall and they are always implanted in me and will never leave. I do not like today’s Cornwall at all whatsoever. Cornwall has not changed for the better but for something that is despicable. You and I are up in age and we have seen the better days.

I think that it was Cornwall Memsies who wrote that if Cornwall had better jobs then people would not be on drugs. I have to disagree. Look at Mayor Ford this man is the head of Canada’s largest city and look at what he did.

The good people have not left Cornwall. The city has its own identity that benefits from all the positive energies of its populace. Regardless of the contentious issues that plague the community (many of the same issues that plague every other community for that matter) Cornwall has a heart and lots of young people that shouldn’t be saddled with a stigma they had no part in creating. Cities change and sometimes for the better. Cornwall is only doomed if the people who live there give up. This publication gives me hope because of the impassioned and erudite comments offered by… Read more »

oops here I go stacking my comments again.

Something that doesn’t get stated enough.
As long as I can remember and I see that it continues today, Cornwall has had a proud tradition of producing exceptional young talents in many different fields of endeavour including music, the theatre and amatuer sports. Talents that have left a positive impression of Cornwall wherever they travelled. Somebody is doing something right in the community

It’s true that we have good young people, and it’s true that they are not the ones responsible for the degeneration of a community. It is true also, that our responsible and intelligent young people are leaving the rot, corruption and backwardness of the Cornwall establishment in droves… fairness and opportunity are more easily acquired, and hard work and honestly better rewarded elsewhere. Meanwhile, the greedy powers that be in Cornwall — a shameless clique that first serves its family and friends — a brood of snakes that offers little to the likes of us. They are graceless and corrupt… Read more »

When reading some of these post it is surprising that there are citizens still living in Cornwall.
