So I was at the G20 Rally…Why I’m so proud to be a Canadian today! Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario – June 27, 2010 VIDEO

Cornwall ON – I love Canada.  I love being Canadian.   Yesterday was an historic day in our country.   I know many of you have seen titillating images of a burning police car or two, and some broken windows, but standing in the midst of the 20,000 + people attending the rally in Queens Park […]

Protest BP Rally Saturday June 12 – 2 PM, Big Oil, Government, Your Voice, Accountability and you. EDITORIAL by Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – There’s a lot of spin right now and it’s as choppy as the waves bringing that BP oil to American and possibly Canadian shores. BP is spending a lot of money maneurvering search engines and media as they try and spin the story to minimize the impact on the company and its […]

Canadian Medicare on the Ropes – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – June 2, 2010 – Cornwall Ontario

Canadian Medicare on the Ropes – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – June 2, 2010 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – I love reading about our Medicare system in Canada from outside sources.   It’s interesting to see other perspectives. LINK Canada, fretting over budget strains, wants to prune its system, while the United States, worrying about an army of uninsured, aims to create a state-backed safety net. Healthcare in Canada is delivered through a […]

Do you want to live in a Soylent Green Kind of World – Medicare, Eldercare, and you.   Editorial – Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario – May 25, 2010

Cornwall ON – Isn’t it horrible when you dread going to a hospital whether as a patient or for a loved one or friend?   I got the call Monday morning.   Heart attack.  The person called 911 and made it to the hospital quickly where two angioplasties were inserted into the artery and the […]

Cornwall ON – Today for lunch at the Agapé food bank the menu du jour was a vegetable soup, some cooked ham, scalloped potatoes, some white bread with hydrogenated margarine, coffee, and cold rice pudding.   For $1 it’s a deal.  Many of the packed room eating didn’t have to pay.    The space was […]

Editorial – Is it time for Canada to get its snout out of the Alberta Oil Sands?  Gulf Tragedy Hits Louisiana – Cornwall Ontario – May 2, 2010

Cornwall ON – As I write this there’s an awful lot of oil heading towards the Louisiana coastline; some of which has already advanced into pockets and is impacting wildlife and the environment. So far very little has been done; and it looks like this will be even bigger than the Exxon Valdez in impact on […]

Have you hugged your Pizza Delivery Driver lately?  Or your Dog?  Or your Mom?  Or your MP?  Cornwall Ontario – April 24, 2010

Cornwall ON – I love my dog.  This is Lily.   She’s a Basenji and is in her “Golden Years”.   As she nears her 15th birthday she’s slowing down a bit.   She’s lost some teeth which is genetic for line sadly which makes it harder when she flips out and attacks my Rottweiler. […]

The Real War on Drugs in Ontario and Canada – Editorial – Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario – April 18, 2010

Cornwall ON – The Real War on drugs takes place each and every day. It’s not cocaine; it’s not Mary Jane as one of our radio guests call it. It’s pharmaceuticals and the pressures from big drug companies on Medicare. Recently Ontario slashed the prices pharmacies are allowed to charge for generic drugs and cut […]

I’m at a Political Crossroads.  What should I do dear readers?  EDITORIAL  Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario – March 28, 2010

In my political life I’ve only voted three times.    It’s not that I’m apathetic.  It’s not that I don’t care.   It’s that to me when I vote for someone that means I not only endorse them, but they represent me.   I’ve supported a lot of candidates; worked for quite a few as […]

You can’t wash your hands of Healthcare – Accountability and Medicare – Editorial – Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario – March 14, 2010

Some problems you can’t just wash away.    The hot topic in Cornwall if not in all of Ontario is health care.  Chiefly slashes to health care budgets which of course lead to job cuts. While there are plenty of fingers to point ultimately the bottom line is that we as Canadians, at all levels […]

Desperate PQ Pauline Marois Suggests Liberal Premier Jean Charest Corrupt – Editorial – Cornwall Ontario – March 14, 2010

The PQ must be getting desperate.   The internet killed their vision of Separatism that she and some of her “Pure Laine” Separatists visioned, and now because the PQ has not evolved politically into this century with the rest of the population of Quebec they sit in the shadows lobbing grenades as they did in this recent article claiming […]

EDITORIAL – NAFTA Under the Gun – Canada should never be for sale – Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario – March 10, 2010

It may be time to circle the wagons here in Canada.  A group of politicians in the US are planting the seeds to open the NAFTA trade agreement. Created during the Mulroney era, NAFTA has been argued on both sides of the border since its inception.   This US initiative is essentially being directed in […]
