Cornwall Ontario River Kings Owner Steve Moreau Blames Team Closing on City AUG 24, 2016

Cornwall Ontario River Kings Owner Steve Moreau Blames Team Closing on City AUG 24, 2016

As the death rattles for the Cornwall River Kings shake, owner Steve Moreau answered a few questions for CFN regarding the shutting down of the team. Ironically a last ditch effort by Rodney Rivette is another example of the dysfunction and corruption of the culture in Cornwall.  Where was ol Rodney during the Summer when […]

River Kings & Art Gallery Closing Show Clear Lack of Community Support in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig AUG 21, 2016

River Kings & Art Gallery Closing Show Clear Lack of Community Support in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig AUG 21, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – There are a core group of people in Cornwall that like to wear their civic pride like a badge of honor or Nero fiddling while Rome burned. Finish near the last in Entrepreneurial studies, and you’ll hear complaints about how the study was done. Celebrate our pizza as though it’s the best […]

MPP Randy Hillier Pens Letter that Slaps Down Seniors Cuts & PSW Abuse AUG 10, 2016

MPP Randy Hillier Pens Letter that Slaps Down Seniors Cuts & PSW Abuse AUG 10, 2016

Randy Hillier, the PC MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox & Addington is one of my favorite politicians in Ontario.   It’s not that I agree with all of his positions or support his party, but when you talk with him you can feel a passion and integrity that is sorely lacking in so many other elected officials.

Maureen Adams Not Answering How Much Failed Loblaws Centre Cost Cornwall AUG 8, 2016

Maureen Adams Not Answering How Much Failed Loblaws Centre Cost Cornwall  AUG 8, 2016

The City of Cornwall is about to write a cheque for over $2 Million dollars to buy back a large chunk of its Industrial Park as Loblaws is bailing on the 121 Acre parcel in the city’s industrial park. Was it a game of chicken with its Quebec Unions for concessions?  Part of the Shoppers […]

Dana Bingley & Beyond 21 Play Politics in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JULY 15, 2016

Dana Bingley & Beyond 21 Play Politics in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JULY 15, 2016

I live in a very very strange town.    Because of a City Hall led boycott many agencies refuse to send press releases or invites to CFN even though their works require the most amount of exposure to be successful. I watched from our public art gallery, which is in the process of wrapping up […]

Hypocrisy in Cornwall Ontario Over Cenotaph Desecration by Jamie Gilcig JULY 13, 2016

Hypocrisy in Cornwall Ontario Over Cenotaph Desecration by Jamie Gilcig JULY 13, 2016

“It is a first. I have never seen such a blatant defacement of our sacred symbol and believe that if other Canadians could see it, they’d be as outraged as I am,” says Bill Maxwell, who is secretary of the Legion’s Poppy and Remembrance Committee. A young man lies in prison waiting a bail hearing […]

Conrad Black Reviews Early Days of Trudeau Regime JULY 10, 2016

Conrad Black Reviews Early Days of Trudeau Regime JULY 10, 2016

A pattern is emerging in the conduct of the Trudeau government. It straddles fairly stylishly between gestures to the trendy and fashionable cutting leftward edge of its support without grossly offending the solid centre of the country that provides the majority for any Canadian federal government. That centre was fairly comfortable with the Harper government, […]

Liberal Cronyism in Cornwall Ontario – LIHOU to Heart of the City via EOTB July 8, 2016

Liberal Cronyism in Cornwall Ontario – LIHOU to Heart of the City via EOTB July 8, 2016

More cronyism in Cornwall Ontario as CFN has learned that former TC Media Seaway News editor Todd Lihou has been given a two year contract with Heart of the City, an arms length agency in Cornwall, funded with tax dollars,  which employs City Councilor Denis Carr as it’s manager/leader. We received irate phone calls from […]

Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues Missing Boat on Harbor Debate in Cornwall Ontario OP ED by Jamie Gilcig

Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues Missing Boat on Harbor Debate in Cornwall Ontario OP ED by Jamie Gilcig

That Hugo Rodrigues is one funny cat.   When I issued a release stating my intention to run for mayor again in the next election, and would do all possible to rescind the bizarre Harbor Deal in Cornwall Ontario that would give the good people of Akwesasne a half interest in the project; the venerable […]

Conrad Black : Exaggerated Reaction to Brexit from the EU JUNE 26, 2016

Conrad Black : Exaggerated Reaction to Brexit from the EU  JUNE 26, 2016

The absurdly exaggerated reaction to the British vote to leave the European Union demonstrates the complacency and incompetence of the governing elites in Britain and Western Europe, and how those attitudes rippled out, unchallenged, in the international media and financial markets. There is some analogy with the comeuppance given the American political class by the […]

Cornwall Ontario Orlando Tribute An Exercise in Hypocrisy by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 18, 2016

Cornwall Ontario Orlando Tribute An Exercise in Hypocrisy by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 18, 2016

I wasn’t invited to the Orlando tribute here in Cornwall on Friday.   Nor was CFN sent a release or invite which is odd as we’re the only newspaper in this community that has not only truly been Gay positive, but actually has sponsored (that’s given actual free advertising for Corus radio types viewing) to […]

Why Does Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues Hack at TAG Cornwall – by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 16, 2016

Why Does Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues Hack at TAG Cornwall –  by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 16, 2016

The lady doth protest too much, methinks For a man that to my knowledge has never set foot in Cornwall’s public Art Gallery, Standard Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues sure likes to write about it. He writes about the gallery far more than say…..the shady Harbor Front deal, or how Big Ben is leeching poison into […]

2 Minutes for Diving to Ruth Ellen Brousseau as Trudeau Breaks Delay by Jamie Gilcig MAY 19, 2015

2 Minutes for Diving to Ruth Ellen Brousseau as Trudeau Breaks Delay by Jamie Gilcig MAY 19, 2015

The lady doth protest too much, methinks What odd days in our Nation’s Capitol as members of the NDP caucus practice clear reverse sexism over Justin Trudeau tapping into his inner Jean Chretien as video shows him charging across the floor to end a delay to bull through Bill C-14 on Assisted Dying as opposed […]

Cornwall CAO Maureen Adams calls Kilger T Shirt Incident DISTRACTION as City Release Settlement info MAY 16, 2016

Cornwall CAO Maureen Adams calls Kilger T Shirt Incident DISTRACTION as City Release Settlement info MAY 16, 2016

Oddly enough today the City of Cornwall issued a press release.  Kevin Lajoie, Public Information Officer, once again neglected to include CFN in the release and I only found out about it after a reporter contacted me for comment. What our new CAO calls a distraction was a clear violation of Human Rights and Freedom […]

Cornwall Ontario City Council Signs Harbor Deal Without Public Consultation by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 26, 2016

Cornwall Ontario City Council Signs Harbor Deal Without Public Consultation by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 26, 2016

The deed was done under cover.    No public consultation.  No real public information delivered.  A non nonsensical that jeopardizes the future of the city of Cornwall Ontario. The bad drama started with the Chem Tanks and ended with the release below by the city which actually rezoned the land “prior” to announcing the deal. […]

Cornwall Politics Take Wind Out of CAPE by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 25, 2016

Cornwall Politics Take Wind Out of CAPE by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 25, 2016

This Winter I chatted with Carol Grant (now Sauve) about CFN sponsoring CAPE.    We have a history of success promoting local events. Sadly politics have seen festivals like Lift Off and Winterfest  destroyed by Cornwall City Council petty politics. Telling groups who to advertise or work with always is a recipe for disaster.   […]
