Digesting the Ontario Leadership Election Debate by Jamie Gilcig 053118

Cornwall Ontario – This has been a mystifying election.   Leadership issues with the PC’s, the demise of a Premier and her party, and Andrea Horwath digging her heels in and not doing the right thing, as Doug Ford did, and jettisoning candidates that clearly should not be in elected office.   And yes, Hitler memes qualify […]

Is the Ford Campaign Running Out of Steam?  By Jamie Gilcig 052518

Cornwall Ontario – Even short campaigns have their peaks and valleys.    After it became clear that Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberals were toast there’s been a huge shift, especially from the Labour Block, back to the NDP which has given Andrea Horwath and her NDP momentum. Lots of momentum. And in elections, especially […]

The Whistle Blower Forum by Diane Shay – Reporting Elder Abuse @ Glen Stor Dun Lodge  052218

LIBS REDLINING in Ontario as Wynne in Danger of Losing Own Seat as Labour Turns 051918

Cornwall Ontario – It’s fascinating to watch the political death of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.   From the defection of ministers and other MPP’s who decided to bail and not run; to teacher’s unions going back to the NDP the day the writ dropped,  and other union leaders telling members to vote NDP or PC based […]

OSPCA & City Report Fail on Cat Issue in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 051818

Cornwall Ontario – It’s sad to see cat owners and kitties being used as pawns in a game that simply is about cash. At the root is the OSPCA wanting the cat control business in Cornwall.  Maybe they deserve it, but there are legitimate questions that need to be answered and they are refusing to […]

Is it Time for a Gas Boycott in the Cornwall Area?  NO MacEwen’s Gas from MAY 7-14, 2018

Cornwall Ontario –  Here’s an issue you kinda sorta can’t blame the government on.   While the high cost of gasoline is heavily taxed, if you live in this part of Ontario seeing 20-30 cent price swings per litre is a regular occurrence. That can be over a freaking $1.00 per US gallon! What we seem […]

Not Running for Office Isn’t Always a Bad Thing – by Jamie Gilcig 050318

Cornwall Ontario –  Running for office isn’t the only way to help a community.  For many it’s a vain ego thing.  I just turned down a new provincial party looking for a local candidate.   Looking around the table here in Council there really are only 1 or 2 that truly get what being a councilor […]

Cornwall City Council Needs a Time Rule for Long Winded Gas Bags by Jamie Gilcig 050118

Cornwall Ontario – I sat through my second council meeting in nearly three years.  (More about that in another column) but one thing was still the same. Bernadette “Flipper” Clement still bloviated as though she was in full campaign mode.  Not sure what she’s campaigning for now, but it certainly didn’t seem like the pocket […]
