A Chill in the Morning After Election Night – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – May 3, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Well the Canadian people have spoken.   This morning we wake up to a Harper majority government with the Conservatives picking up 167 of 308 seats in Parliament.   It’s pretty clear. We can talk about the politics of spin.  We can talk about corruption.  We can talk about dirty tricks, but […]

Harper Majority Government projected – 10:54 PM – 160+ seats – Ignatieff fails – Layton looks to record 100+ NDP Seats – May 2, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Stephen Harper is smiling tonight as it looks like he’s getting his majority.  In a dark day for Canadian Democracy his spin masters have nabbed the prize. Jack Layton and the NDP have recorded historic gains, but as opposition in a majority government they will have less ability to improve Canada than […]

Osama Bin Laden Announced Dead & Canada Votes for its next PM – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig  – May 2, 2011

Cornwall ON – May Day, May 1st has been associated with organized labour for an awfully long time.    During WW2 the Nazi’s tried to make it their day to pull from the Communists who were for so long synonymous with organized labour around the world. On May 1st the US announced that it had […]

Who should be our next MP? by Richard Komorowski – May 1, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Now that the election is coming to its climax, the inevitable question arises: Is it worth voting, and if so, for whom?  Guy Lauzon For someone who is already 67, and who will be over 70 when the next election is called, Guy Lauzon, the Conservative incumbent, has campaigned remarkably well. However, […]

All Hail the Mighty Wedge Issue! by Jamie Labonte – May 1, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

All Hail the Mighty Wedge Issue!  by Jamie Labonte – May 1, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Wedge issues are like crack cocaine to fringe politicians. They appear to reinforce the base, get huge applause from guaranteed voters and define your platform like nothing else can. Perhaps this is why the Conservative party has seized upon Canada’s long-gun registry. It appeals to the libertarian ideals of many rural folks. Folks that don’t want […]

The Cornwall Free News Endorses for the 2011 Federal Election…Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – April 29, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – The Twitterverse pounds you with news if you follow enough scribblers and news sites.  It’s like a rush of heroin without the …..heroin.   It’s a busy Manhattan street or the rush of the London tube. Just a cacophony of messages; most of them sales pitches and spins. This has been a […]

Orange Surge Sweeping Across Canada.  EKOS POLL Pegs NDP with 98 Seats – April 28, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Prime Minister Layton?   In September of 2009 Mr. Layton took time from his day and granted an interview to a newbie Online newspaper.   I’m sure he had much better things to do, but he gave us a shot and it was an amazing interview. I was truly amazed at how […]

Letter to the Editor – Joe Hueglin of Niagara Falls Ontario on Harper Government Agenda: Plus qu’il change plus que la meme chose – April 28, 2011

Letter to the Editor – Joe Hueglin of Niagara Falls Ontario on Harper Government Agenda: Plus qu’il change plus que la meme chose – April 28, 2011

Interesting is the terminology used by Harper over time. “Canadians want change not constitutional wrangling, said Harper.” were the words used when “New Confederation proposals” were issued by News Release on October 15, 1995. Also stated then was this: “In all cases, Reform’s New Confederation proposals simply require a federal government that is willing to […]

Letter to the Editor by Gary W Samler of Cornwall Ontario – Elections and Choices: The Federal issues – April 27, 2011

The F 35 Stealth fighter bomber purchase is allegedly at $16 billion but in reality is likely higher in cost overruns . That $16 billion: -would build 80,000 homes for Canadians at $200,000 each -would feed 32 million African children for 10 years -would provide four years free post secondary education for 400,000 Canadians -would […]

Nanos-Land and the New Media by Jamie Labonte – April 24, 2011

South Stormont, ON – There are many major players in the current political battle and most are well known. . There is Stephen Harper, the would-be benevolent patriarch, Michael Ignatieff , the “David” to Harper’s “Goliath” fighting insurmountable polling numbers, Jack Layton, the underdog that makes bold speaches and gestures with no fear of reprisal and of course Gilles Duceppe, […]

Lettre d’opinion – ABOLIR LE SÉNAT: VIVE LA DÉMOCRATIE! – Mario Leclerc – Cornwall Ontario – 24 Avril, 2011

Les sénateurs gagnent 132 300 dollars par année comme salaire de base et ils sont là jusqu’à l’âge de 75 ans. Il n’y a pas de doute que la majorité des Canadiens aimerait voir l’abolition du Sénat. Mais les vieux partis politiques le soutiennent par intérêt. Çacoûte plus de 90 millions par année pour cela. Ils ont […]

So I’m still undecided on who to vote for on May 2 in the upcoming Canadian Federal Election…EDITORIAL by Jamie Gilcig – April 24, 2011

Cornwall ON – So it’s one week to show time for Canada and all of our futures.    It’s been the most anti-climactic and non-focused election I’ve lived through to date. The Harper game plan is like a Jacques Martin hockey plan; get a lead and hide and hold onto it.  I can’t argue that, […]

Letter to the Editor – PJ Robertson of Morrisburg Ontario on MP Guy Lauzon’s Contempt – April 24, 2011

In the federal all-candidates debate in the Cornwall Civic Complex, SDSG MP Guy Lauzon is reported to have dismissed Parliament’s contempt ruling against the Conservatives as simply the opposition parties ganging up, and therefore meaningless.   Clearly, Mr. Lauzon has learned nothing about parliamentary democracy and has no time for it.   So, why is he running for re-election […]
