CLARIFICATION – An Open Letter to Our Readers and the Conservative Party of Canada – Editorial – Cornwall Ontario – January 24, 2010

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 […]

Is a natural product always earth friendly? – Earth Matters by Jacqueline Milner – January 22, 2010

Is a natural product always earth friendly? Some months ago we switched to recycled newspaper pellets, ‘Yesterday’s News’ for our furry felines as we came to realize that a simple natural clay substance wasn’t necessary the best choice for our home environment or for our earth. According to Wikipedia about 2 million tons of cat […]

(Haitian Tent City in Aftermath of Earthquake) As a Nation we have the wealth, infrastructure, generosity, ability and compassion to create a world class disaster response mechanism.  We must get aid to those that need it, as fast as possible, as any delay will mean lost lives.  This plan could be put in place within […]

Water Meters to be an Election Issue here in Cornwall Ontario? January 18, 2010

Water Meters to be an Election Issue here in Cornwall Ontario?  January 18, 2010

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. Ontario is going through a similar issue with these new “SMART METERS” for electricity.   A politician stated this recently. […]

“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 […]

A true warrior uses his brain.   Muhammad Ali was one of the greatest boxers in history.  He wasn’t a flash in the pan or a shooting star.  He had a long and gloried career.   He wasn’t Joe Louis,but he could knock you out.   He could dazzle you.  He could head f*** you […]

Canadians Have Spoken – Letter to the Editor from Bernadette Clement – Federal Liberal Candidate SD&G – January 15, 2010

Canadians Have Spoken – Letter to the Editor from Bernadette Clement – Federal Liberal Candidate SD&G – January 15, 2010

Canadians have spoken. Most of them are not happy with the Conservative decision to close down Parliament. I agree with them. But Canadians are also tired of old-style party politics. I agree with that too. Younger Canadians are especially disappointed with this approach. There is so much that we need to discuss reasonably together. We […]

Earth Matters by Jacqueline Milner – Are you flushing precious resources down the drain? – January 15, 2010

Are you flushing precious resources down the drain? I had to examine this question after reading Mr. Komorowski’s article on the water meter question a while back. Mr. Komorowski suggested that local government consider a program to subsidize low flow toilets before looking at purchasing and installing water meters to encourage people to conserve treated […]

Letter to the Editor – Gabrielle Riviere-Reid – Victims of Historical Sexual Abuse – Cornwall Ontario – January 15, 2010

Mr Bentley, I just finished reading the press release from the Attorney Generals Office saying that victims of historical sexual abuse in Cornwall will be assessed for local support services while the government evaluates Commissioner Glaude’s recommendations, because the current funding was to help them get through the Inquiry. There are several problems with this: […]

A Call to Tim Hortons to Save Haitians In Haiti, millions are homeless and hundreds of thousands are missing and feared dead.

From Porn to Blade Runner – The Future of “Selfs” Editorial – Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario – January 12, 2010

If I ever teach a film class, or a writing class, Blade Runner will probably be one of my favorite films to share with my students.   It’s a seminal film that explored back then so many issues that are creeping into our reality. Shot in 1982 by directing legend Ridley Scott; based on the […]

Dear Mr Lauzon, The backlash of scorn regarding the conservative governments decision to prorogue Parliament continues on strong.

Getting Ready For More ‘Shock Therapy’ in 2010?

Letter to the Editor – Brian Lynch – “Stephen Harper’s prorogation of Parliament for the second time in 12 months is another attack on Canadian democracy”. – Cornwall Ontario – January 4, 2010

Dear Editor: Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s prorogation of Parliament for the second time in 12 months is another attack on Canadian democracy. There is no valid reason for Prime Minister Harper to suspend the work of Parliament until March 3. Prorogation kills all government legislation pending before Parliament and shuts down all committees, including the […]
