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.   […]

Have Local Liberals Taken Over the Glens by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 6, 2016

Have Local Liberals Taken Over the Glens by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 6, 2016

Cornwall is one of the oddest communities I’ve ever lived in and I’ve lived in a few.     The political corruption fingers through everything from City Hall, to charities, and even our SD&G Highlanders apparently. First you have former MPP Jim Brownell named as Honourary Lt. Colonel.    That was a little weird as […]

Metro Closing in Cornwall Ontario Highlights Poor Economic Development in Community by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 28, 2016

Metro Closing in Cornwall Ontario Highlights Poor Economic Development in Community by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 28, 2016

As council fiddles and sells the community’s future with its shady Harbor Front deal with the Feds and Akwesasne Metro has announced that it will be shutting its doors in a few months.  About 75 people will lose their jobs, about a third of those full time employment where it’s becoming more difficult to find […]

Ghomeshi Verdict Shows Need for Attorney General Reform in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 25,2016

Ghomeshi Verdict Shows Need for Attorney General Reform in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 25,2016

Jian Ghomeshi’s life will never be the same.  The countless legal bills incurred, the damage to his reputation, and at the end of the line the loss of quality of life and earnings can never be repaired. Chiefly because there is no real accountability of Crown Attorney’s in Ontario.    Cases have two factors, the […]

It’s Time for Justin Trudeau to Show Up at 420 Ottawa by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 14, 2016

It’s Time for Justin Trudeau to Show Up at 420 Ottawa by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 14, 2016

One of the strongest positions that assisted Justin Trudeau in his majority victory was the Liberal party’s position to legalize Marijuana. Trudeau failed to defend Marc Emery’s extradition to the US that was more about industrial competition and advantage more than any other factor.  Allowing a Canadian citizen to be extradited for something that wasn’t […]

Conrad Black: University Decision to Remove John A. Macdonald Statue is Cowardly & Disgraceful MARCH 12, 2016

Conrad Black: University Decision to Remove John A. Macdonald Statue is Cowardly & Disgraceful MARCH 12, 2016

Canada is suffering from a prolonged pandemic of moral self-flagellation promoted by hemophiliac bleeding hearts and militant native agitators. The latest outburst of it is the recent decision of the governors of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ont., to withdraw from an arrangement to erect statues of all 22 of Canada’s former prime ministers on […]

Wynne Libs War Against Vaping & E Cigs Continues with New Laws by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 10, 2016

Wynne Libs War Against Vaping & E Cigs Continues with New Laws by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 10, 2016

Some agendas are more clear than others.    The Ontario government makes a lot of money off of the licensing of tobacco products.   In theory those monies are supposed to offset the high medical costs of traditionally smoked tobacco. E Cigs have grown exponentially with many using them as a tool to refrain from […]

Why I Will be Boycotting the Seaway Food Festival & All 11 Eateries by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 8, 2016

Why I Will be Boycotting the Seaway Food Festival & All 11 Eateries by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 8, 2016

As some of you know CFN has been the victim of a conspiratorial boycott led by City Hall since 2012.    In its 4th year the tentacles sadly extend through the community. City Hall actually had their lawyer state that the largest newspaper in the community is a blog.  A very odd thing to say, but […]

Can Patrick Brown Really Change the Culture of the PC Party in Ontario? by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 7, 2016

Can Patrick Brown Really Change the Culture of the PC Party in Ontario? by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 7, 2016

As many regular CFN viewers know I am “Hyper Non Partisan” politically.  I decided, after dealing with politicians here on CFN that I could no longer support Partisan Politics. It made no sense from a personal view point.    Yes, belonging to a group could be a good thing, but it also can be an […]

Kevin O’Leary Con Leadership Run Opens Language Debate in Canada by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 2, 2016

Kevin O’Leary Con Leadership Run Opens Language Debate in Canada by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 2, 2016

Kevin O’Leary is taking a page or two from Donald Trump in the US and trying to position himself for a leadership run to replace Stephen Harper for the Conservative Party. Like Trump he’s picking off popular topics that are getting him a lot of press. It’s not rocket science.   Hold out hope to […]

Are the Police Doing Due Service For Fraud Investigations in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig FEB 28, 2016

Are the Police Doing Due Service For Fraud Investigations in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig FEB 28, 2016

Fraud is a huge crime issue facing many communities.    They take immense resources from law enforcement and the legal system, yet here in Cornwall many are not even investigated. The standard line of recent vintage cases from the CCPS is that investigations can take five months. Now many in the public that might not […]

Federal Harbour Lands Deal of Secrecy Fiscal Threat to Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig FEB 18, 2016

Federal Harbour Lands Deal of Secrecy Fiscal Threat to Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig FEB 18, 2016

There is a reason why the Federal Government is trying to unload harbour lands across Canada.    Most are polluted or have historic environment issues that literally could cost billions of dollars to resolve. Cornwall’s harbour is so polluted that when a movement to create a beach occurred a few years ago it was pointed […]

Bad Asset Management Leads to Habs Fall From Grace in 2015/16 by Jamie Gilcig FEB 17, 2016

Bad Asset Management Leads to Habs Fall From Grace in 2015/16 by Jamie Gilcig FEB 17, 2016

Going into this season Habs GM Marc Bergevin made very few impact changes.   Washington for example, clearly saw a need for some secondary scoring support and nabbed TJ Oshie, and Justin Williams. Montreal saw some lottery tickets.    Alex Semin, Zach Kassian, and Tomas Fleischman.     While “Flash” had a good start, as […]

Corruption, Intimidation & Lying Will be Why I Recommend Closing TAG Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig FEB 13, 2016

Corruption, Intimidation & Lying Will be Why I Recommend Closing TAG Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig FEB 13, 2016

A lot of good people have been hurt this year trying to save the City of Cornwall’s public art gallery.   From years of historic corruption, poor governance, and a lack of support in a community that is very very weak artistically the final insults to decency were delivered this week. It’s entrenched why this […]

Clarifying Slanted Media & Mistruths About TAG Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 5, 2016

Clarifying Slanted Media & Mistruths About TAG Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 5, 2016

The problem with media is that sometimes, really bad journalists with really poor integrity can take innocent bits of an answer and build a perspective that creates an entirely different meaning. Today the Seaway News issued yet another hatchet job against TAG Cornwall, the city’s 34 year old public art gallery that may be shutting […]
