So are we entering a Depression or leaving the Recession?

So are we entering a Depression or leaving the Recession?

I’m reading a lot of stories of late about the economy.    We have just had some unprecedented financial stimulus given almost world wide.  So of course that’s impacted economies and raised numbers. Unemployment is still going up.   If people aren’t working and making money the economy just cannot grow.   In July Canada lost 45,000 jobs.  […]

Transcontinental Trashing English Content in Montreal Newspapers

Transcontinental Trashing English Content in Montreal Newspapers

To me the whole concept of a community newspaper is to be inclusive.   Local Papers are the lifeblood and only source of information for many communities.   L I N K “Five bilingual weekly newspapers in the Montreal area are now publishing in French only.” Transcontinental has bought a lot of local papers and now is […]

The Bloc Wants EI Changes – Well so do I! EDITORIAL

Geez I wish Gilles Duceppe was a Federalist.   He’s such a strong Politician.    Now he wants changes to the EI system.  I do too.   I’m not sure I want 360 hours to be the line, but I think it needs to be at one standard with certain supplements based on area or needs. Actually I […]

More Medicare/Ohip nonsense – Call your MP.

So I’m busy packing up the remnants of my old store and one of my customers tells me this story. He has COPD and his lung capacity is below 25%.    This makes mobility a real issue. I suggest he apply for a scooter as I have before.    His issue is that the doctors held off […]

Have you Googled yourself lately?

Have you Googled yourself lately?

Having a site like this gives you a lot of information.  It passes through; it passes by; it never stops. I get to see the search terms used that bring people to The Cornwall Free News and was surprised to see my own name as a term. So I Googled myself.   Wow;  that’s an awful […]
