Russell Barth OP ED – RE: So I’ve changed my mind about Marijuana – July 6, 2011 – Nepean Ontario

  CFN – Jamie Gilcig probably thinks he is as hip as hip can get, now that he has finally dragged his opinion into the 21st century. But sadly, he still gets it kind of wrong. First off, although “dope” is still an accepted slang term for marijuana, it denotes stupidity (as in, you would […]

When Did “Liberal” become a bad word or How Canada’s Learning to Love Blue?  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – July 3, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – We are living in scary odd times.    In the US, where terms like Neo-Con get used a lot, George Bush and his cronies were tossed out after eight years in office.   War, an economy nearing Greek like stages; and public dissension probably not seen since the 60’s rule many parts […]

Healthcare, Healthcare, a bit more Healtcare – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – June 22, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Healthcare, Healthcare, Healthcare.   There is no issue as important in Canada right now.  It’s about our identity; our sovereignty, and frankly it’s about who we are and how we treat each other. It’s also about money and power and when those two get together it can be a very bumpy ride.   […]

PERSONNE N’A DEMANDÉ D’ÊTRE PAUVRE – Mario Leclerc – 18 juin, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Certaines personnes sont ruinées du jour au lendemain, pour cause de dettes, de rupture familiale ou à la suite du décès de […]

Cornwall ON – I’m still a rookie in the journalism field.     I’m not really a journalist although I portray one occasionally.    I’ve not been burdened with some of the hypocritical rhetoric it takes to be a top notch network Newsy. My eyes have really seen a bit of how news works; what […]

A Media Ho at the Crossroads – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – June 9, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Apparently I’m a big Ho.  Prostitute, whore, seller of words and souls for a few pence occasionally pressed into my tiny corporate hands.    A friend was visiting from a foreign land last night and wanted me to show him the sights of Montreal.  Seeing as there was this burst of lighting and rain […]

Brigitte DePape – Two Words – Fifteen Minutes of Fame – Hope for Canadian Democracy and Young People – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – June 4, 2011

Cornwall ON – Brigette DePape  (Bridgette Marcelle) entered our Canadian history books by a simple act of defiance.   It was gorgeous.   A simple sign with two words on it.   She sacrificed a great job to own that moment of our shared history and gained a National and in many cases International platform […]
