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

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 […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Keeping it Simple While Hammering Away at Trudeau in QP – 042618

Ottawa Ontario – Keeping a government off-guard and on the defensive is one of the primary functions of an opposition party’s attack team. We usually see this take place in the daily Question Period. The questions that need to be asked can most often be boiled down to three simple ones. 1. What did they […]

CFN to Appoint Emily Hutcheon Associate Publisher – 041518

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.

Can Facebook Fix #Datagate & the Cambridge Analytica Debacle? by Jamie Gilcig 032218

Cornwall Ontario – Many are suggesting that the Cambridge Analytica data issue is simply the tip of the zuckerberg; that in this one instance there’s a whistleblower that clearly defines this instance, but that data from facebook has always been used and reused, and possibly marketed by facebook itself. While those thoughts have not been […]

Conrad Black – Less Selfies, Better Government for Canadian PM Justin Trudeau 031418

Toronto Ontario – It is too early to judge how profoundly Justin Trudeau and his government have been undermined by the debacle of the visit to India, which cannot be laid off by scapegoating Indian and Canadian officials. Coming on the heels of the “peoplekind” fiasco, it has created a worldwide credibility problem for this […]

Fraser Institute: Unemployment Rate Less Reflective of Labour Market 011618

  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A falling unemployment rate will not necessarily indicate a healthy growing labour market in the future, in part because Canada’s population is getting older and more Canadians are retiring from the workforce, finds a new study by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Scheer vs Beyak – 010918

Ottawa Ontario – The Monday news coverage should have been another bad day for Prime Minister Trudeau. Joshua Boyle was going to be in court and the expected news coverage would have dragged the PM’s name and his foolish decision to meet with Boyle into the spotlight yet again. This was something the Liberals certainly […]

Ottawa Ontario – There have been a lot of media reports on Prime Minister Trudeau’s strange meeting with the Boyle family. So far the story simply doesn’t add up. Prime Minister’s just don’t meet with anyone who requests a meeting and it doesn’t matter who that person is or their background.  In most cases, a Prime […]
