Earth Matters by Jacqueline Milner – 2-4-D Spraying by the Counties Council Destroys More than Weeds – March 28, 2010

It is with much sadness in my heart that I find the Counties Council has once again decided to go ahead with introducing poison (2-4-D) into our environment (road side ditches) for the express purpose of killing noxious weeds despite the reports they have received from knowledgeable individuals and groups of the detrimental effect that […]

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 […]

Letter to the Editor – Darlene Jalbert “SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, MEAN WHAT YOU SAY MCGUINTY!!” Cornwall Ontario – March 27, 2010

Dear Editor SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, MEAN WHAT YOU SAY MCGUINTY!! Will this Provincial Liberal government ever learn that your word is worth something in this world? This budget once again shows us that what Dalton says during election time is not at all what you can expect once elected.  In 2004 he introduced the […]

Letter to the Editor – John Milnes of South Stormont Ontario Isn’t Happy with SD&SG Federal MP Guy Lauzon – March 22, 2010

Dear Sir: Congratulations to our local newspapers for their excellent coverage.  They have brought to the surface the total ineffectiveness of our Conservative member of parliament [MP].  Without exception the local newspapers have found Guy Lauzon, the MP in question, to be missing in action on so many issues it is hard to believe he thinks he […]

Earth Matters by Jacqueline Milner – Dance with the butterflies!  – March 22, 2010

Dance with the butterflies! Spring is Here!  New life is evident everywhere one looks.  The blackbirds, crackles and robins have returned.  The birds are busily singing to find a mate to start a new family and building or rebuilding their nests for the season.  Plants are peaking out of their winter hibernation homes, stretching to […]

Letter to the Editor – The State, Citizens and Taxes – Corneliu Kirjan – Cornwall Ontario

The State, Citizens and Taxes For more than two decades, the neoconservative thought that has swept North America has succeeded in imposing its dogma of continually lowering taxes as the only acceptable financial truth.  Elaborated by neoconservative economists and applied in the United States by Republican presidents, this policy has been followed in Canada by […]

Letter to the Editor – Brian Lynch – Cornwall City Council Personal Expense Account Usage – March 17, 2010

Letter to the Editor – Brian Lynch – Cornwall City Council Personal Expense Account Usage – March 17, 2010

Dear Editor: I am concerned that Cornwall’s Mayor and city councillors are misusing the public relations portion of their expense accounts. The statement of expenses for Cornwall City Council for 2009 reveals that the bulk of the $35,000 public relations portion was spent by the Mayor and city councillors on donations to local charities and […]

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 […]

Major Crisis In Food Chain Cause for Sick Society – Commentary by Kevin Parkinson – Cornwall Ontario  – March 10, 2010

Lots of people and lots of organizations talk about the importance of good health these days, but there’s a world of difference between words and actions.  The ‘importance of diet and fitness’ make great sound bites, but there is so much misleading advertising and so many mistruths in what is being said. First of all, […]

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. Created during the Mulroney era, NAFTA has been argued on both sides of the border since its inception.   This US initiative is essentially being directed in […]
