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 […]

Cornwall and Toronto Share many of the Same Municipal Election Issues – January 4, 2010

We’re both Waterfront cities.  We both have diverse multicultural communities with all the challenges and benefits that it brings. Budget shortfall issues plague both cities. Transportation is a big issue too. Expansion of the airport and the new low level bridge have the potential to turn Cornwall into a BOOM town if done right and […]

Photo Radar about to be Dropped in Arizona – I say get rid of them all!  Cornwall Ontario – January 3, 2010 EDITIORIAL

I don’t like Water Meters, but I hate Photo Radar.   No, I’ve never been caught yet, but to me Photo Radar represents the worst of those paranoid “Big Brother” theories coming home to roost. Arizona looks like they’ll be pulling theirs down.    Good for them.  Maybe it’s more of a reason to consider […]

Earth Matters by Jacqueline Milner – Looking for an Eco-friendly Multi-tasking solution this New Year? – January 1, 2009

Looking for an Eco-friendly Multi-tasking solution this New Year? I was visiting a friend recently and as my reputation as an ecologically minded person precedes me she asked what cleaning products I used in my home? 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. Just when I gave him a thumbs up for at least creating the perception of strength he pulls one from the Richard Simmons School of Strength and Conditioning by calling a […]

Holiday Stress: How to Avoid It – By Markus Noé Tis the season for everyone to be surrounded with yuletide joy, happiness and everything else that goes with Christmas.

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 […]
