Well that question prompted me to look into more environmentally friendly solutions to replace at least one of the […]

Letter to the Editor – John Towndrow – Not Happy with Stephen Harper Prorgue of Parliament – Cornwall Ontario – December 31, 2009

Editor, Although not surprised, I am shocked and dismayed as once again Prime Minister Harper prorogues parliament, not for the good of the country but to avoid difficult issues that may further erode confidence in this government! This is one more step in this government’s inexorable drift toward unchallenged power: ducking difficult questions around the Afghan detainees and attacking […]

Letter to the Editor – Brian Lynch re: Stipend Increases for Council – December 30, 2009

December 30, 2009 Dear Editor: I disagree with the recent  suggestion by Mayor Bob Kilger that the City of Cornwall should provide stipends to council members who sit on the boards and committees of various community organizations. This is simply a pay increase through the back door for council members in addition to their regular pay […]

Stephen Harper Takes his Ball and Shuts Down Parliament – BREAKING NEWS – December 30, 2009

He’s done it again.  That wacky Minority government leading Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, has run to Michaelle Jean asking for yet another time out.

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 […]
