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.

Geez we get an awful lot of emails and comments about us not liking Stephen Harper, Guy Lauzon, or the Conservative Party of Canada.  We get called a “Liberal Rag”, a “NDP Voice” , and a reusable “Green Party of Canada” cloth. The fact is that the “Free” in The Cornwall Free News is that […]

Water meters for Cornwall Ontario.   Hmm….Nope.   I don’t want one.  I don’t know too many people that do and I certainly don’t think too many think that they will save a whole lot of money.

“They Took My Whole Room” Ottawa Area Radio Pirate Jayhaed Still Spinning Tunes and Being A Juvenile – Online Now only – January 16, 2010

So I’m listening to little Jayhaed Saade’s online radio station.  He’s busy dropping f-bombs over tracks while soliciting money.  It’s hypnotizing.   It shows what happens when parenting goes awry.     It also gives a reason why some minors should be tried as adults in court. It looks like he’s a bit unhappy about […]
