Shameful Trial Muzzled by Justice Deborah Kinsella in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 121318

Cornwall Ontario – Justice Deborah Kinsella, who brought a Judge Judy pencil bag to trial,  gagged a case this writer covered.   Not only did she place a gag order on the plaintiff and defendant.  She put the same order on the witnesses.    While there is a reason to gag elements of a case, to […]

Sale of Cornwall Square Highlights Bob Peters Failure @ Economic Development by Jamie Gilcig 121218

Cornwall Ontario –   I’d like those of you that read this that actually care about the arts locally to think about this.  Digest it. Taste it like a fine wine please. The City of Cornwall, led by Mayor Bernadette Clement and “her girls” will spend about the same money this year keeping the Bank of […]

Clement Tax Council Jacks Water Rates 4.07% in Cornwall By Jamie Gilcig 120818

Cornwall Ontario –  And so it starts.   As predicted the latest council, gerrymandered by local unions and kool aid drinkers saw the first bite into them with Council barely responding to the water rates requested by City Management going up 4.07% This writer doesn’t dispute that the raise is needed.    Political neglect and management […]

Dianne Poirier is a Nitwit – Liberal Francophone Organizer on Display @ McDonnell Rally by Jamie Gilcig 120218

Cornwall Ontario – I kinda giggled when I found out that there was a Canadian Francophone organisation locally.   Not because I disrespect Francophones, but this area has people like that silly man with his pins and of course Dianne Poirier, retired school teacher,  who besides being President of this local group has been a driving […]

Is it Time to Tax or Ban The Ad Bag in Cornwall? by Jamie Gilcig 112918

Is it Time to Tax or Ban The Ad Bag in Cornwall?   by Jamie Gilcig 112918

Cornwall Ontario – We all get them every week.   Mine goes straight to the recycle bin, but that’s exactly why city’s like Montreal are deciding whether to ban them altogether.  LINK Locally TC Media ships them with the Seaway News weekly, but most end up in our landfill.    With more communities banning plastic bags […]

Methinks Amanda Simard Protests Too Much – To Sit as Independent by Jamie Gilcig 112918

Cornwall Ontario –  All governments cannot be all things to all people.  Amanda Simard, a new MPP in Glengarry Prescott Russell who has some experience as a municipal councilor and was a Senate  page clearly either doesn’t understand politics or is playing amateur hissyfit politics. She is the first Conservative MPP in the riding since […]

Cornwall Community Police Refuse to Report Event Costs, Sponsors, & Skip Wednesday Police Blotter by Jamie Gilcig 112218

Cornwall Ontario –   Danny Aikman is a wee fellow.    He made his way through giants to eventually become police chief of the CCPS.  (was there any truth that he only would accept a Deputy Chief that was shorter than he was which was how Ms Spowart got the position?) Oddly enough his start sadly […]

Cornwall Ontario – The Cornwall Community Police Service reported an increase from 71 to 91 Sexual Assault charges that were laid in Cornwall in from 2016 to 2017. You can’t blame a lack of resources.    The CCPS cost per capita is nearly on par with Toronto and nearly 3 times the cost of the […]

It’s Time for Maureen Adams to Give up on Cornwall MPAC Lawsuit by Jamie Gilcig 110718

Cornwall Ontario –  Sometimes adults make mistakes.   There is an old saying….   The difference between winners and losers is how they deal with adversity. Maureen Adams was the city’s Chief Financial Officer before becoming its CAO.  Under her leadership, or lack thereof, the city’s finances have crumbled.   She’s part of a circle jerk between […]

Captain Creepy Wants to Fight the Media by Jamie Gilcig 123018

Captain Creepy Wants to Fight the Media by Jamie Gilcig 123018

Cornwall Ontario –  It was really odd reading the headline about Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer wanting to fight the media or hold us accountable. I have no bone to pick with Captain Creepy.  It’s tough being Stephen Harper light, without substance,  and a face that makes Tim Hudak look kinda warm and fuzzy. I remember […]

Randy Sauve Rants as Comicfest Flops at Civic Complex 102918

Randy Sauve Rants as Comicfest Flops at Civic Complex 102918

Cornwall Ontario –  There’s a certain ignorance and nastiness in Cornwall that’s embodied in people like my former neighbor Randy Sauve. There’s no crime in not being bright or capable of running one’s life without baby bonus.  There is when you stalk and rant after people who can create and build things without government assistance […]

Cornwall CAO Confirms She Nominated Voisine For Fire Chief Award on Public Dime 102918

Cornwall CAO Confirms She Nominated Voisine For Fire Chief Award on Public Dime 102918

Cornwall Ontario –  As CFN reported recently the odd circus that has been the city spending wads of cash to make silly vanity videos of Fire Chief Pierre Voisine.   LINK Ms Adams is not answering to the costs of the video, but sources have said that city have spent over $20K, but it has now […]

New Regimes in South Stormont & South Glengarry May Spell Change 102518

New Regimes in South Stormont & South Glengarry May Spell Change 102518

Cornwall Ontario – Unlike Cornwall’s vote both South Stormont and South Glengarry voters sent a message that change was desired; chiefly fiscal change.   In South Stormont this is chiefly ironic as Cornwall CAO Maureen Adams and many Sunshine list decision makers in Cornwall reside in the township.   IE, they don’t support the #taxrape and corruption […]

Pharmacist Hanna Pled Guilty to Fraud Over $5K – License Not Suspended by College 221018

Pharmacist Hanna Pled Guilty to Fraud Over $5K – License Not Suspended by College 221018

Cornwall Ontario – One has to wonder what it takes for a pharmacist to lose their license from the Ontario College of Pharmacists? If the College’s discipline panel deems behavior by one of their members to be: …disgraceful, dishonourable and unprofessional… Wouldn’t that be enough? For one case,  billing dead patients didn’t do the trick […]

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

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy Confronted at Civic Complex Debate by Julie Johnston  101118

Cornwall Ontario – Last night’s meet, greet, and debate revealed that politicians do lie and I and Council candidate Brent Charles was surprised to finally get an honest answer from Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy regarding his failures and lies broken promises as a mayor.
