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.

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.

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 […]
