Is it Time for a Gas Boycott in the Cornwall Area?  NO MacEwen’s Gas from MAY 7-14, 2018

Cornwall Ontario –  Here’s an issue you kinda sorta can’t blame the government on.   While the high cost of gasoline is heavily taxed, if you live in this part of Ontario seeing 20-30 cent price swings per litre is a regular occurrence. That can be over a freaking $1.00 per US gallon! What we seem […]

Not Running for Office Isn’t Always a Bad Thing – by Jamie Gilcig 050318

Cornwall Ontario –  Running for office isn’t the only way to help a community.  For many it’s a vain ego thing.  I just turned down a new provincial party looking for a local candidate.   Looking around the table here in Council there really are only 1 or 2 that truly get what being a councilor […]

Cornwall City Council Needs a Time Rule for Long Winded Gas Bags by Jamie Gilcig 050118

Cornwall Ontario – I sat through my second council meeting in nearly three years.  (More about that in another column) but one thing was still the same. Bernadette “Flipper” Clement still bloviated as though she was in full campaign mode.  Not sure what she’s campaigning for now, but it certainly didn’t seem like the pocket […]

As CUPE Strike Drums Beat in Cornwall Ontario – Maybe Cut Management Salaries by 25%? A Thought by Jamie Gilcig 043018

Cornwall Ontario –  Call it a Million Dollar Solution!    Even CUPE knows that Cornwall is in a budget crisis, but sometimes you need dramatic solutions to dramatic problems. You can’t blame city workers and their union for trying to improve their lot.  It’s part of what they do. The entire blame for this lies […]

Misjustice as Fmr CCPS Sgt Brian Snyder Appointed Justice of the Peace in Cornwall Ontario – 042718

Cornwall Ontario – In Ontario you don’t have to be a lawyer or paralegal to be appointed as a Justice of the Peace.  You don’t need any legal training or background.   Essentially you need a highschool diploma, which is why former Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger couldn’t become one, and really good political connections. Former Cornwall […]

Conflicted Council in Cornwall Adds $500K to Benson Vanity CIC Slush by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario –  David Murphy has aspirations to run for Mayor of Cornwall in 2018.   In the meanwhile he voted to support the vanity project of his long time employer, Gerry Benson.

Dysfunctional Conflicted Corrupt Cornwall Ontario City Council Heads to Ombudsman While Budget Burns by Jamie Gilcig 042418

Cornwall Ontario –   One area lawyer refers to Mayor Leslie O’Shaugnessy as a hobo.   They get irate that the man won’t wear a tie to council and dresses shabby even to going as far as once saying he was going to drop some coins onto the mayor’s desk to help him go to Agape and […]

Wynne “Trumpwins” Ford as Moody’s Drops Ontario Rating by Jamie Gilcig 041918

Cornwall Ontario – You get the feeling that Kathy doesn’t really know how to drive a truck, or run a province, and apparently now not campaign as she lashed out at PC leader Doug Ford recently, comparing him to Donald Trump and unleashing her own inner Hillary. The problem is that telling the public that […]

The Problems of the Culture of “Choosing Cornwall” by Joe Boyer – 041718

CFN to Appoint Emily Hutcheon Associate Publisher – 041518

Cornwall Ontario –   Our city councilor here in Cornwall, Claude McIntosh,  actually once wrote about me having to do all the jobs here at CFN as though it were something to be embarrassed about or amateur.   Of course he’s participated on a City Council that boycotts this newspaper and in fact his last column,  after […]
