CFN Turns 8!   What You Can Do to Help Us Serve You Better by Jamie Gilcig FEB 15, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Eight is a mystical number.  It’s also a version of the infinity sign if you turn it sideways. The Cornwall Free News turned eight this week, on the 9th.    I decided to not have any fanfare or major celebration as the last time I did so, our 5th anniversary, I was […]

It is Time to Clean Up the Cornwall Community Police Service? by Jamie Gilcig JAN 26, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  The Standard Freeholder ran a puff piece spinning a higher amount of complaints about the CCPS. Oddly enough there were less reported crimes in Cornwall in 2016 even though they still are raising their budgets. The police service is a cash cow.  It comes down to money and power.    If you’re […]

Brad D Eamer of Cornwall Wants City to Switch to OPP  JAN 26, 2017

To the Editor . Once again we watch helplessly as our City Council wrestles with our 2017 budget. This city is so desperate to save money that anything and everything is on the table, and rightly so.

Christmas Cronyism in Cornwall as Councilor Hebert Lands Gig @ EOTB by Jamie Gilcig DEC 30, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – Another cronyism hiring in Cornwall Ontario.  As in many smaller cities it’s really hard to get a reasonably good, non minimum wage job,  never mind an actual “Career”.
