Budget Time Highlights Failure of Council in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig DEC 6, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – In business if you consistently make bad decision you end up shutting down.  Just ask Bryan Merkley. However when it comes to the public purse the cash never stops flowing.

Cornwall Ontario Heckled & May Lose It’s Largest Newspaper by Jamie Gilcig DEC 5, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – Starting CFN in 2009 has been an amazing experience.   It’s been brutal in many ways exposing the darkest sides of any community I’ve ever seen not in a cheap tv series or movie. While by far my experience with people in this town has been pleasant, it’s been mostly that on […]

BREAKING MFDA Responds to Gilles Latour Media Quotes by Jamie Gilcig DEC 2, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – Holy Gilles Latour!   The former Liberal bag man spoke to Bill Kingston, and reading his words you almost want to pat him on the back and put a few coins in his cup. However the evidence that has been displayed so far paints a different picture. Latour has yet to explain […]

Toxic Culture @ Root of School Closings Failures in Cornwall Area by Jamie Gilcig NOV 20, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – I left Team Cornwall after a sampling of its former President Gilles Latour, who’s now waiting his court dates from charges of fraud, including of his mother. I also am no longer a member of the Cornwall & Area Chamber of Commerce.    When I first ran for a seat on its […]

Time to Think About the Future of Lamoureux Park & Civic Complex by Jamie Gilcig OCT 21, 2016

It is time.  Cornwall is at a critical point in its history.    With a struggling downtown, a weak economy, proposed school closings, a destructive brain drain of our youth, and a toxic business and political culture there are some easy steps forward, and some more difficult ones. Waterfront property is usually the most expensive […]

Clinton Trump Debate Shows Deplorable State of US Politics by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 27, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – I watched the debate between US Presidential candidates Hilary Rodham Clinton and Donald Trump. It was not the reality show gore fest that many were expecting.   It wasn’t very entertaining or informative.    I don’t think it ultimately will change the voter turn out or results.   It did highlight a […]

SD&SG MP Guy Lauzon Abuses Tax Payers With Partisan Mailer by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 16, 2016

Conservative MP Guy Lauzon issued a new mailer.   The purpose of a mailer generally is to communicate with voters in the riding.  It is done at tax payer’s expense and not of the Conservative Party. The latest mailer, which is a whopping 11×17 inches includes  a whopping four pages in English and French, nearly as […]

The City of Brampton just axed 25 management and senior officials in what has to be one of the most progressive house cleaning jobs in Ontario Municipal history.

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.

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

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.

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 […]
