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.

Did Local Conservatives @ Cornwall & Area Chamber of Commerce Steal Driver Data Too? 052118

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 […]

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 […]

Misjustice as Fmr CCPS Sgt Brian Snyder Appointed Justice of the Peace in Cornwall Ontario – 042718

Cornwall Ontario – In Ontario you don’t have to be a lawyer or paralegal to be appointed as a Justice of the Peace.  You don’t need any legal training or background.   Essentially you need a highschool diploma, which is why former Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger couldn’t become one, and really good political connections. Former Cornwall […]

Wynne “Trumpwins” Ford as Moody’s Drops Ontario Rating by Jamie Gilcig 041918

Cornwall Ontario – You get the feeling that Kathy doesn’t really know how to drive a truck, or run a province, and apparently now not campaign as she lashed out at PC leader Doug Ford recently, comparing him to Donald Trump and unleashing her own inner Hillary. The problem is that telling the public that […]

Cornwall Ontario –   Our city councilor here in Cornwall, Claude McIntosh,  actually once wrote about me having to do all the jobs here at CFN as though it were something to be embarrassed about or amateur.   Of course he’s participated on a City Council that boycotts this newspaper and in fact his last column,  after […]

Crumbling Cornwall Area Old Guard & Lack of Replacements as Benson Charity Golf Classic Folds 040718

Cornwall Ontario – The Benson Charity Golf Classic has folded.  Another cultural event dying in an area already nearly void of culture.

CFN 1 on 1 with Ontario PC Leader DOUG FORD April 6, 2018

Silence is Golden for Ford Campaign as June Election Nears – by Jamie Gilcig 033118

Cornwall Ontario – Contrary to what certain pundits blather about,  Doug Ford was the opponent Kathy Wynne didn’t want to face.
