Seaway News For Sale Too – Is City Hall Politics Destroying Media in Cornwall? by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 20, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  I live in a very strange community.  Ignorance and corruption are literally destroying our local economy.   Now two of the main three media are for sale, and the Standard Freeholder is rumored to be wobbly.  Corus Radio chopped its newsroom staff a few years ago as well.

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Vimy Ridge No Place for Partisanship APRIL 11, 2017

Ottawa ONTARIO – There are times when it is best to put partisanship aside. The ceremony at Vimy Ridge was one of those moments.
