With Taxes Out of Control Cornwall Wants to Buy BMO Building for Art Centre 042218

Cornwall Ontario –  Insanity or Genius?    In an election year with a record budget increase looming an apparent leak from an in camera session is buzzing around town about the City purchasing the BOM building on Pitt Street to create an art centre or facsimile.

The Problems of the Culture of “Choosing Cornwall” by Joe Boyer – 041718

“Choose Cornwall”. I did. In fact, both my wife and I did. We came here to attend St. Lawrence College, (SLC) not knowing much about the area.You can look at tourism sites, review sites and city websites but you never know what kind of culture a place has until you’ve experienced it from the inside. […]

Crumbling Cornwall Area Old Guard & Lack of Replacements as Benson Charity Golf Classic Folds 040718

Cornwall Ontario – The Benson Charity Golf Classic has folded.  Another cultural event dying in an area already nearly void of culture.

TAG 2.0 as Historical Society Impeaches Itself at AGM in Cornwall – by Jamie Gilcig 040218

Cornwall Ontario – Corruption is not new to Cornwall.   Sadly it’s in the culture.  Bullying and ignorance is far too common.   This writer experienced it first hand during my time saving our former Art Gallery before it ultimately folded simply because of the insane politics of this area.    I had actually been able to […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Easter Brings Activities! 040118

Hometown Hockey Fail – It’s Not That Cornwall Isn’t a Hockey Town – Cultureless City by Jamie Gilcig 032318

Cornwall Ontario – Cornwall is a big enough city to have culture.   Yes we have a lower income level, but that usually breeds art.  It usually attracts artists who are always looking for less expensive places to practice their art too. The problem is that there is no true appetite for  culture in this community.  […]

Cornwall Manigats the Seaway Silly Food & Beer Festival Because of Petty Politics by Jamie Gilcig 30318

Cornwall Ontario – After living here in the River City for fourteen years I still get mystified at the tragic load of cow poop that some perpetrate on the public?

Syd Gardiner & Elaine MacDonald Hypocrites When It Comes to Art in Cornwall – by Jamie Gilcig Feb 2, 2018

CORNWALL ONTARIO – In an I’m sure unintentional  bizarre joke the Seaway News ran a piece trumpeting a scrolling image on a TV in the basement of the Civic complex as a triumph for area artists. There are a few real artists in the region, but most have stayed away from the circus. Elaine was […]
