Looking Forward @ Canada Day in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 081417

Cornwall Ontario – So after my editorial about Guy Lauzon’s partisan control over Canada Day here in Cornwall a lot of chatter and great ideas have been floated through my inboxes. Clearly many CFN viewers are dismayed at any Politician of any one party controlling our Federal celebration. What has percolated through is that if […]

If Premier Couillard Really Wants Anglos to Return to Quebec. By Jamie Gilcig 081417

Cornwall Ontario –   I’m a refugee of Quebec.  One of the multitude of Anglos that left (along with a lot of  Francophones) for a multitude of reasons. I write this the day after helping empty my Mom’s Cote des Neiges apartment and finding an album of pics from the two short films I shot […]

Something Fishy @ Cornwall Fire Service Under Pierre Voisine. By Jamie Gilcig 080917

Cornwall Ontario – A war seems to be waged from the Cornwall Fire Services against Cornwall City Councilor Mark A MacDonald? At root has been Councilor MacDonald’s position that the city has to come to grip with Fire and other services. Essentially we have to live within our ability to pay and that fire and […]

Could Bad McDonalds Service in Cornwall Signify the End of the World?  By Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario – I’m a cheater.  Yes indeed, with my partner in CFN, Reg Coffey, roasting some of the finest beans in the region I secretly love my Mickey D’s iced coffee. Sadly though the service at our two local drive throughs is utterly and consistently dreadful.   Last week I was in line with […]

You Can’t Hide Taxes in Cornwall.  Fire & Police Refusing Info. By Jamie Gilcig 080317

Cornwall Ontario –  Oddly enough our fire and police services are refusing to answer basic questions and information to this newspaper. Questions like how many calls for service the police had from last Friday to Sunday.  Where other services voluntarily release that to media, our police service, led by Chief Dan Parkinson, refuses to answer […]

Why Isn’t the CCPS Reporting Rash of Robberies in Cornwall?  072617

Cornwall Ontario – Social media is abuzz after the robbery of the beloved downtown Riley’s bakery.  But after sifting through a lot of pages and talking to a lot of people it appears that at least five other businesses were broken into. The one consistent seems to be that it appeared that all hadn’t been […]

#boobygate Coverup in Cornwall is Rank – Chem Tanks 2.0  By Jamie Gilcig JULY 14, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – I’ve always marvelled what anyone can have against the female breast and nipples?   Watch television and people have no issues with shows like The Walking Dead which has some of the most senseless and frightening gore I’ve ever seen in my near 53 years on this planet; but show a nipple […]

Ontario Needs to Invest in Health CARE as Much as in Buildings.  By Jamie Gilcig JULY 14, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – It has been published that the Cornwall Community Hospital is rationed 60 hours per day for doctors.  That includes emergency where tragically so many end up because they simply don’t have a GP.  Clinics are so brutal that the wait times are near what they would be in emergency which compounds the […]

Liberal Minister Sandals Stakes Patrick Brown Over Govt Advertising JULY 13, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – It’s fun watching the election rhetoric ramp up.  I think Minister Sandals missed though on this one.  Instead of spinning back to Mike Harris perhaps it might have been more on the money to mention that not once did Mr. Brown complain about Prime Minister Harper’s Action Plan that saw millions spent […]

Because the meeting was in camera CFN cannot confirm […]

Should Maureen Adams Be Fired for Not Informing Council About #Boobygate? JULY 10, 2017

Should Maureen Adams Be Fired for Not Informing Council About #Boobygate? JULY 10, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Holy Paul Fitzpatrick!   In what seems to be a chapter out of the ol Kilger council, rookie councilor Justin Towndale went public on his social media page with a statement claiming that council was left out of the loop of the Human Rights Tribunal Case of Nekkid Boobies. As many of […]

Are We Being Misled Regarding Clement Marina Project? By Jonas Malley JULY 7,2017

Are We Being Misled Regarding Clement Marina Project?  By Jonas Malley  JULY 7,2017

Cornwall Ontario – Are we being misled by city officials and a land developer?  Well… at the very least, a “proposed” condominium development on public waterfront and parkland in Cornwall does seem ominously secretive.   Is this condo and capital venture, skirting the proper divestiture of Federal Lands, and is the City of Cornwall sneakily […]

It’s Time to Take Canada Day Back in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig JULY 3, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Another Canada Day in Cornwall.  More social media griping, rain, bad fireworks, crappy bands, Cornwall sucks, blah blah.   I get it. It’s time though, that if the public want a better Canada Day festivity to take charge.   There’s no reason for a sitting MP to be running Canada Day in […]

How the rise of Canada is in some ways greater than even America’s. By Conrad Black JUNE 30, 2017

Because it is always consensual and never revolutionary, it has relatively less drama than have had the other G-7 countries National Archives of Canada-PA-091061/ THE CANADIAN PRESS The countries that are today the G-7 leading democratic economic powers all underwent radical political changes between […]
