Walsh Pressure Cleaning Responds To Calls From Boycotters of CFN – March 26, 2014

walshCORNWALL Ontario – As many of our loyal viewers and subscribers know CFN has been the victim of a conspiratorial boycott that leads all the way, as many believe, to Queen’s Park and the Wynne Government?

In many ways it’s worse than the Rob Ford boycott of the Toronto Star; but we have our occasional moment, and have hung on these two plus years.   We’ve doubled out traffic and are the most read newspaper in the region; but have been cut off from advertising from the Province, Provincial Agencies, Schoolboards, Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, Team Cornwall, local charities, as pretty much there is so much inter connectivity it’s like being in The Stepford Wives!

One of the reasons we hang on is because of some of the incredible people that live, work and play in our great city.  Yes, there have been some clients like Lawyer Milena Cardinal that have capitulated to the cliques (instead of telling the truth) after her conversation with monkeys like Nicholas MacNaughton, but then there are very special tough Cape Breton people like Wyatt Walsh of Walsh Pressure Cleaning and his mom Patricia.

It was his mom that first elbowed Wyatt to advertise with us, and that led to us working together on Beavergate here in Cornwall when the City had actual Conibear Kill traps in Guindon Park, a nature park at path entrances where dogs, kids, and illiterate politicians were in danger.

So when the Walsh’s heard that they were mentioned in a hate group on facebook they were shocked and then Ms Walsh temper flared which is never a good thing as she’s one feisty woman I’d never want to be on the wrong side of!

Elections are coming of course and everything changes.  CFN still rolls out the news and uncovers some truths that some would prefer not be shared, but then, that’s why you read us.  It’s a strange irony; but I think it’s more reflective of the business culture and leadership of Cornwall than we at CFN.

Thanks to Wyatt and his Mom Patricia for being brave and speaking up instead of simply withdrawing.  With the business climate in Cornwall we need more people less afraid to cower to cliques so we can grow!

I congratulate the Walsh family and every word that they said was the absolute truth. You showed that you are a good and honest people. Jamie is the best reporter in Cornwall and the rats that are in the toilet paper of record – SF and that dirty Seaway News which is the junior toilet paper of record makes no sense at all except to line a bird cage, wash your windows or train your puppy or use as mulch in your garden but nothing in the way of news. I live in Ottawa and am from Cornwall and every… Read more »

It is kind of amazing the amount of energy that crew put into patting each other on the back for the same types of comments over and over Last week they had a picture of a guy lying drunk claiming it was cfn Three days later they are screaming about a facebook photo of one of them It is all very strange Then u have the others like stellabystarlight who posted here until u had to give your name now she is making comments against cfn over at the freeholder wow what a double standard They also rail against the… Read more »

atta boy Wyatt. sing it loud and sing it clear. like yourself, business has made me a publicly known figure.and like yourself, and JG, i don’t follow the common road. we prefer one less traveled . up until a year ago i had no interest in politics or any personal involvement, then one afternoon, something caught my eye, a comment by a friend had sent me into a rant about what was transpiring, their reply was, well check this guy out on CFN, so i did. since then i have my morning coffee reading his editorials, rarely a dull moment.… Read more »

It could happen to any of us and we should all keep it in mind. Angry mobs form when we want to lay blame for whatever’s making us uncomfortable, afraid or even paranoid. And when a mob identifies what it “believes” is the cause (consider the Salem Witch Hunt) such as an individual, like Jamie, or a group ( CFN advertisers), the mob rationalizes its attacks are somehow justified. It’s interesting that the local angry mob (remember: the mob named itself) now self-describes as a fun group discussing local news, sports and events. Thank you for being a smart and… Read more »

Good for Walsh Pressure Cleaning for not caving to the mob mentality and pressure (no pun intended).

Small Town stories

On the other side of the Internet debate is the administrator of the “Dr. PJ Pace — The truth?” Facebook page.

She said she set up the online forum to support a close friend who told her he had been abused by Pace. She said she did not want to be identified because that would make it too easy to learn her friend’s identity.

She said she felt she needed to set up the site after the effusive praise that followed Pace’s death. “He may have been a great man to other people but these victims need closure,” she said.

Mr. Walsh you have a trade and when people have trades they can work anywhere unlike people with a profession or just some job. Always be positive about yourself and you have a strong and intelligent mom. Your mom said it best and she described it like the “wild wild west” like it truly is and like the Dukes of Hazard and Peyton Place. Cornwall is too small and it is like living on a farm or village but worse when you have the Mafioso in charge. Jamie is the best that hit town and is telling you all the… Read more »

reminiscent of clint eastwoods character portrayal in The Good The Bad And The Ugly, its easy to see who is the starring character in this show, and we all know who the bad guys are being played by, but the ugly? the ugly is the fact that until a short period of time past, if i were to want to read any current information about cornwall, i was forced to read the sun news. those days “they” (the sun) didn’t hold back on newsworthy articles, drug busts, smuggling, illegal aliens, murders, they were all news in the sun and usually… Read more »

Mr. Rothwell you wrote an excellent piece just now and you are completely right. I remember my own parents said that way back there was some sort of a cartoon type of a display in the “toilet paper of record – SF” and it depicted Cornwall as the “town of idle men” that everyone was living on welfare. That is exactly what Cornwall is renowned for as well as smuggling cigarettes, drugs, guns, alcohol and even the smuggling of people. Cornwall made international headlines in Time Magazine back in 1993 about its smuggling and got the name of “smugglers alley”.… Read more »

I sort of agree with Jules here. But have a few points. The Time magazine infamy is over 20 years ago. Time to move on from that.

As for smuggling any town, city, village with close proximity to the border and / or waterway will have that. If they don’t do it here, if they’re shutdown, etc. they just move it to another town, city, village.

Debbie Cameron…I’d love to join your FaceBook group. But I use a pseudonym for a reason, Jamie knows the reason. Thus I cannot join any groups using my real name. Basically it’s due to my wife working for one of the local municipalities. I’ve criticized the local politicians on here and on other media websites. I don’t think she should suffer repercussions due to my voicing my opinion. And we all know that cliques exist and if you (or a spouse, friend, etc.) speak out against the local politicians repercussions will happen and swiftly.

I sure can see Hugger’s position and I agree with him on that. When I went on facebook years ago it wasn’t anything political and people would just argue and put people down for no reason. I have seen it on the forums that I would go on. When you are fully exposed with your own name it is much worse if you live in that community. I have turned myself off completely of ever going back to Cornwall. The days of me working is finished and my children are the future along with all the young people today. The… Read more »

It’s time to turn Cornwall around, do a 180º turn from where it is now. If we did a 360º as Jules suggested we’d be right back where we started. Not a good idea. Make changes now and keep the younger generations here now and forever.
