SD&SG MP Guy Lauzon Abuses Tax Payers With Partisan Mailer by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 16, 2016

Conservative MP Guy Lauzon issued a new mailer.   The purpose of a mailer generally is to communicate with voters in the riding.  It is done at tax payer’s expense and not of the Conservative Party. The latest mailer, which is a whopping 11×17 inches includes  a whopping four pages in English and French, nearly as […]

MPP Randy Hillier Pens Letter that Slaps Down Seniors Cuts & PSW Abuse AUG 10, 2016

Randy Hillier, the PC MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox & Addington is one of my favorite politicians in Ontario.   It’s not that I agree with all of his positions or support his party, but when you talk with him you can feel a passion and integrity that is sorely lacking in so many other elected officials.

$210,581, nearly $20 per resident of the township,  is about how much taxes are going up for South Stormont residents this year, or about 3.8%.  Ironically Deputy Mayor Tammy Hart and  her puppets fellow elected council, Jim Bancroft,  and Donna Primeau, ran on a platform of transparency, accountability, and killing the contract with the South Stormont […]

South Stormont Doesn’t Show up for South Stormont News Trial MARCH 19, 2016

When the plan to start the South Stormont News rolled forward it was simple and basic. Help promote the community and offer something that most communities its size don’t have any longer, a local news presence. The South Stormont News was incorporated in Ingleside.    A deal was struck for a one year contract to […]

Can Patrick Brown Really Change the Culture of the PC Party in Ontario? by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 7, 2016

Can Patrick Brown Really Change the Culture of the PC Party in Ontario? by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 7, 2016

As many regular CFN viewers know I am “Hyper Non Partisan” politically.  I decided, after dealing with politicians here on CFN that I could no longer support Partisan Politics. It made no sense from a personal view point.    Yes, belonging to a group could be a good thing, but it also can be an […]

Local Impact for Cornwall Ontario Tenders & Why Isn’t Ed Lumley Buying the Complex New Seats by Jamie Gilcig

Local Impact for Cornwall Ontario Tenders & Why Isn’t Ed Lumley Buying the Complex New Seats by Jamie Gilcig

I know.  What an odd picture to header a column, but then, this is an odd town with an ever odder City Council. The problem is the old adage, “You get the politicians you deserve.” After all, this is a town that over 4,000 people voted for Robert Brock Frost, and hardly anyone voted for […]

Yes Virgina, It’s Time to Stop the City Hall Led Boycott of CFN JAN 21, 2016

Yes Virgina, It’s Time to Stop the City Hall Led Boycott of CFN  JAN 21, 2016

10,000,000 is a very very large number.   Can you imagine the impact on Cornwall and area businesses if they had those impressions instead of through google ads? CFN had an early policy of not having digital ads as we wanted to focus on local, but due to a most likely illegal boycott led by […]

Are you Politicked Out Yet & Does Anyone Really Care? by Jamie Gilcig DEC 23, 2015

Are you Politicked Out Yet & Does Anyone Really Care? by Jamie Gilcig  DEC 23, 2015

It’s interesting to see what hits a button with people and what doesn’t?   In this age of internet newspapers like CFN we get to see direct results by page view counts, comments, and of course Social Media chatter. In 2015 we also live in an age of near Orwellian times.   Mass media, the […]

Go Home Mohammed – More Cornwall Ontario Racism Highlighted in CBC Story of Girls Hockey Game

Go Home Mohammed – More Cornwall Ontario Racism Highlighted in CBC Story of Girls Hockey Game

I mulled over whether to write this story or not.    I get abused and attacked every time I highlight something negative about our city; even though what I write about is true. When I wrote about Swastikas in a local high school and used the R word it led to being legally bullied by […]

Jim Brownell Being Keynote at Team Cornwall AGM is Like Gilles Latour Hosting a Mother’s Day Event by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – The latest presser from Team Cornwall announcing Jim Brownell as the key speaker shows how disconnected the group has become. Frankly it may be time to either sit down and figure out what Team Cornwall really should be or disband it. Having Jim Brownell be a key speaker for this group is […]

The Deadbeat, Hurricane Hart, Funny Cops, Frosty the Clown, & the Crowns by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 21, 2015

(photo:facebook) CORNWALL Ontario –  It all started with a settlement hearing at Small Claims court in Cornwall Ontario. Sadly, Mike Bedard of Platinum Pools would not pay his seasonal bill, again.      So CFN was forced to take him to court to try and collect a bill.  This would not be the first time Mr. […]

Arts Culture & Sleazing for University Money at City Council or Dear Gerry Benson by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – I took Sunday off.  I wanted to mull this piece before scribbling it onto the web. This weekend saw something incredibly positive happen for Cornwall that proves a major point I’ve been standing on for several years. People in the region care more about Arts and Culture than they do about Sports. […]
