Cornwall Ontario – 2010 Editorial – Vision at a Critical Time – December 26, 2009

Vision is a funny thing.    Many times there is no “right” vision; simply what a person or group wants.     I’ve lived in Cornwall Ontario now for six years.   It’s been an interesting experience. Cornwall is a very diverse community; and it’s a community in change.   I don’t think I’ve ever […]

So is this concept of reducing city council about power?  Right now […]

Local TV doesn’t really exist.   Today most “local stations” are owned by Corporate Chains.  Look at the logo above.  All of those companies own national chains including our Government owned CBC.
