The Cornwall Election That Really Wasn’t.  By Jamie Gilcig 221018

Cornwall Ontario –   They say in 12 Step that you can’t truly start your recovery until you hit rock bottom. This 2018 election normally would be that rock bottom.  Time will tell if it’s so. A corrupt city management and council have essentially rigged the election.   All you have to do is look at who […]

Whistleblower Forum by Diane Shay – Cornwall Ontario Just Isn’t Safe 101918

Well, I have made several trips to Cornwall over the last six month to find a home. Over time I felt less and less comfortable in these surroundings and I finally had to admit to myself that I just don’t feel safe in Cornwall. There are some very nice homes even though the taxes are […]

Any Cornwall Candidate that Supports the BMO Arts Centre Doesn’t Deserve Your Vote by Jamie Gilcig 101818

Cornwall politics are essentially shameless, corrupt, and frankly the government we collectively deserve. No other issue highlights this better than the BMO farcical art centre hustle. Essentially for over 30 years the city doled out a very very meagre amount of money to sustain the charity that was our Public Art Gallery.  Run by fumble […]

Cornwall Resident Puts Riverdale House Up for Sale After Election Candidate Disgust LTE 101718

Please excuse the edits.  It is the city of Cornwall that educated me. They did not do a very good job on the English. Please read the additions. It is to laugh. There is not a Mayor candidate in this election that is worth supporting. The councilors are not any better. They are totally out of […]

If You Don’t See Your Election Candidate Ad on CFN Don’t Vote for Them by Jamie Gilcig 101218

If You Don’t See Your Election Candidate Ad on CFN Don’t Vote for Them by Jamie Gilcig 101218

Cornwall Ontario – CFN has over 1 million human pageviews monthly.   It’s been that way for a awhile, but what quite a few people, and sadly many in the political and business realms locally, don’t get is that whether they like this newspaper, its publisher, or writers, and content is that the majority of the […]

It’s Time to Stop Giving the Cornwall Colts a Free Ride by Jamie Gilcig 100418

Cornwall Ontario – Geez there are fire sales and bad deals,  and there is the sweetheart deal that the City of Cornwall is giving the Cornwall Colts for some reason?   I mean this is worse than a Marc Bergevin trade. At issue is that the city has two facilities that have far too much empty […]

Cornwall Mayoralty Debate Exposes Lack of Leadership by Julie Johnston 100418

Cornwall Mayoralty Debate Exposes Lack of Leadership by Julie Johnston 100418

Cornwall Ontario – Last night’s debate involving the four Mayoral candidates revealed true colours and where “THEIR” priorities are. Bernadette continues to show her preference on an art center yet cries about the “poor” in the same breath. The tactic of repeating and repeating the same words like “infrastructure”,  “art center,” “partners” felt like a brainwashing […]

Bad Management & Council Lead to High Taxes in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Bad Management & Council Lead to High Taxes in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Cornwall Ontario – The city likes to give out voodoo numbers when it comes to tax increases, but the bottom line is the bottom line.  If you raise taxes nearly 20% per term without increasing revenues something always gives out. Even worse, if you borrow money to pay for a tax increase, as Cornwall did […]

Whistle-blower Forum 2018 Election & 2014 Election Broken Promises Pt 3  by Diane Shay 100118

  Cornwall Ontario – October 22, 2018 is almost here. Time to reflect before casting that vote. In the words of Albert Einstein: “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil but because of those who look on and do nothing” …which continues to reflect this Councils lack of ability […]

Cornwall Glen Stor Dun Lodge Whistleblower JULIE JOHNSTON on Mayoralty Options in 2018

Cornwall Glen Stor Dun Lodge Whistleblower JULIE JOHNSTON on Mayoralty Options in 2018

I was not completely anonymous when I came forward in December 2010 describing the consequences of a micromanager at the Glen-Stor-Dun Lodge. One councillor was aware a letter was sent to city council. This is how we found out the severity of censorship (obstruction of justice) within the city as council did not receive their […]

Bad Politics Again Hit SD&G OSPCA as Fundraiser Turnout Falls #EPICFAIL 092418

Cornwall Ontario – The SD&G Ospca twice refused full year ad plans from this newspaper, one paid for by a local businessperson.    Playing politics instead of putting the animals first has led to tragic results. “This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Carol Link, manager. “We had a low turnout […]

#CCPS Taze Mentally Ill Man Who had DROPPED Weapons in Cornwall – NO SIU Report by Jamie Gilcig 091218

Cornwall Ontario –  For several years now this newspaper has struggled with the CCPS for more transparency and more disclosure. Unlike forces in Kingston they refuse to give out a breakdown of calls of service.  They begrudgingly now give out a total of calls for the day although there are days they don’t report any […]

Wanna Buy a Newspaper?  Turn Key Cornwall Regional Eyeballs – CFN FOR SALE

February will be the tenth anniversary of this newspaper.   That’s a long time and a lot of hard work. It’s resulted in over 1 million human pageviews monthly.      LINK Sadly, CFN never became the creative fount of positivity I envisioned when I started this venture in February of 2009.   You can’t do creative marketing […]

Ford Gov’t Goes Full Poutine & Invokes Not Withstanding Act Over Toronto Council Decision 091018

Cornwall Ontario – Shock and Awe as an Ontario Conservative government takes a page out of Quebec politics to chop up Toronto City Council. The only issue this writer has are the optics.  Surely there are other councils, like the one here in Cornwall which are not serving the public equitably. Many in the public […]
