The Whistle-blower Forum by Diane Shay – Election Promises Broken re: Transparency, Integrity & Accountability in Cornwall

The Whistle-blower Forum by Diane Shay –  Election Promises Broken re:  Transparency, Integrity & Accountability in Cornwall

“The world will not be destroyed by evil but by those who watch without doing anything” Albert Einstein. Well it’s that time again to renew councils contracts through our election process. When one is hired to do a specific job and fails miserably should they get their contracts extended another four years? This question will […]

#CCPS Police Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 081118

Cornwall Ontario – For many of us journalists we know no hours.   We can be working days straight at a time.  We can work at odd hours.  Many of us have no set schedules. CFN does not have public offices.  When I need to meet someone we do it in public spaces.  There are security […]

2018 Cornwall Election Candidate Meeting Cancelled for Thursday August 9, 2018

Cornwall Ontario –  What an odd Municipal election this is.   Almost no media coverage to date and an invite for an evening for council and mayoralty candidates to meet at the Knights of Columbus Hall for tonight was cancelled due to several candidates refusing to attend. The meeting would have been open to the public. […]

Economic Fail – Cornwall isn’t on the Radar – Aquaworld Developer Stefano Ferrante 080818

Cornwall Ontario –   It seems that failure isn’t an issue at City Hall in Cornwall.   An empty Loblaws site for over two years; no waterfront development,and now confirmation that Cornwall was never in the running for the $115 million dollar Aquaworld Water Park development that is working through the process in nearby Prescott Ontario. Mr. […]

Seniors Leaving Cornwall Too –  Cost of Living Corruption Lack of Culture Cited 080718

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was chatting with a friend who’s nearly 80 and she’s planning to sell her home and leave Cornwall.   She shared a few more of her friends were leaving too. Another friend in her 40’s shared that she’s moving to Ottawa and then shares that she has about a half dozen […]

What Does Hugo Rodrigues Have Against Cornwall Councilor Mark MacDonald by Jamie Gilcig 080418

Media can be a bewildering thing.    We are flooded with content through the day.  Local, regional, National, happy stories, tragedies, tales of injustice, and crime. Yet at the end of the day we filter all that down to a few stories on a good day. With 4 utterly pointless candidates for mayor and 32 […]

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

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

Cornwall Ontario –   From offers of hand made suits  by Montreal tailors and volunteers it was very tempting to run for office in Cornwall this election. When I ran in 2014 I had one clear objective which I was very proud of the results contrary to what Hugo Rodrigues likes to spew.    I wanted […]

Maurice Dupelle & Bad Politics Leave Agape Food Bank on the Brink in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 071618

Cornwall Ontario –  One of the biggest problems in Cornwall is the utter failure of charities due to really bad politics. The United Way for example boycotts this newspaper.  They also kept missing their funding targets so they no longer have them.  Instead of acting like a responsible charity and pursue their mandate they fail […]

So After a Busy Weekend of Listening Do You Want Me to Run? Election 2018 & Brampton 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 071618

Cornwall Ontario –   It’s really weird getting stopped in public places and asked to talk about politics and in particular my running for office again this 2018 election. The most common theme I heard over the weekend is that this town would putrefy with David Murphy as mayor.  I can’t say I disagree with that […]

Hugo Doesn’t Seem to Understand Why the Poor Election Candidate Turnout for Cornwall?  By Jamie Gilcig 071418

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was having a beverage with a gentleman I was expecting to run for mayor of Cornwall Ontario.   He was bright, successful, connected to the community and had the gift of gab.   He was clearly far superior to the only person to put their name forth so far, one David Murphy, […]

Over 200 Million Reasons To Worry About the Cornwall Waterfront by Jamie Gilcig 071318

Cornwall Ontario – The problem with a lack of community leadership is that issues can bite you in the bum before you realize what hit you.  Corruption and political impotence do not lead to a successful community. While the ol rumours and allegations about a certain former mayor’s love for a good game of cards […]

Will Cornwall Become Brampton 2.0 in 2018 Municipal Election? by Jamie Gilcig 070818

Cornwall Ontario – In the 2014 Ontario municipal election CFN viewers were credited with being the change in Cornwall. Out went one long time corrupt Mayor and politician along with half of his council,  and in came a mayor who allegedly stood against the corruption including having resigned during the term as councilor.   We now […]

Would Cornwall City Hall Really Not Pave My Sidewalk?  Neighbors Bring Petition to Council by Jamie Gilcig 070713

Cornwall Ontario – When my neighbor came to me complaining that they city was refusing to repave the sidewalks on our block because I lived on here I laughed at him.   I mean, that’s nuts and silly.   It would be an abuse of the public purse too. Imagine repaving a block up and a block […]

Abram Benedict Re Election as Grand Chief Could Spell Land Fight for Cornwall Waterfront by Jamie Gilcig 070118

Cornwall Ontario – Then next few years will be a defining period for both Akwesasne and Cornwall.  At stake is an extremely valuable strip of waterfront lands that the Federal government will be selling, most likely through a process via Canada Lands where the properties are evaluated and then sold at market values to gain […]
