Does Council Really Need to Fund a $70K Study for Sunday Bus Service in Cornwall Ontario FEB 5, 2016

Does Council Really Need to Fund a $70K Study for Sunday Bus Service in Cornwall Ontario FEB 5, 2016

It’s odd.  We live in a City where we pay large salaries to city staff and managers and then elect a mayor and council to lead. They then dump off decisions to even more pricey consultants.  Does this make any sense?  Maybe we shouldn’t have staff and managers and just hire consultants to run Cornwall? […]

Local Impact for Cornwall Ontario Tenders & Why Isn’t Ed Lumley Buying the Complex New Seats by Jamie Gilcig

I know.  What an odd picture to header a column, but then, this is an odd town with an ever odder City Council. The problem is the old adage, “You get the politicians you deserve.” After all, this is a town that over 4,000 people voted for Robert Brock Frost, and hardly anyone voted for […]

Is New EOHU Restaurant Sign Program a Weapon in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JAN 1, 2016

A new sign grading for local eateries goes into effect in 2016.    In theory it’s a great idea giving consumers a clear window via a Green card, inferring safety, yellow, and red for closed.    However in theory Communism is the best form of government which has never really worked out. The issue is […]

Santa’s trip over Canada this year will be a bit different.  With a chance of hitting 20 celsius this Christmas Eve it might not be hot cocoa and layers kind of weather.

Chem Tank Cover Up Points to Bob Peters in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – DEC 9, 2015

Incredulously enough City Council asked the very person at the root of the Chem tank cover up scandal to issue a report, which he did last month. Bob Peters is the number two in our Economic Development office.  His tome to council reads like a game of Three Card Monte.  See the joker?   Follow […]

Go Home Mohammed – More Cornwall Ontario Racism Highlighted in CBC Story of Girls Hockey Game

I mulled over whether to write this story or not.    I get abused and attacked every time I highlight something negative about our city; even though what I write about is true. When I wrote about Swastikas in a local high school and used the R word it led to being legally bullied by […]
