New Regimes in South Stormont & South Glengarry May Spell Change 102518

New Regimes in South Stormont & South Glengarry May Spell Change 102518

Cornwall Ontario – Unlike Cornwall’s vote both South Stormont and South Glengarry voters sent a message that change was desired; chiefly fiscal change.   In South Stormont this is chiefly ironic as Cornwall CAO Maureen Adams and many Sunshine list decision makers in Cornwall reside in the township.   IE, they don’t support the #taxrape and corruption […]

Dear Editor, On Friday October 26, 2018, Cornwall takes a giant leap… toward irrelevance.

Why I Didn’t Run for Mayor or Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072818

Advanced Voting Down Nearly 15% in SD&SG Due to Corruption & Democratic Failure by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario – With reports of Advanced Polling down nearly a whopping 15% in SD&SG clearly abuse by local riding teams and Elections Ontario are leading indicators.

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 […]
