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.

Have Local Liberals Taken Over the Glens by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 6, 2016

Cornwall is one of the oddest communities I’ve ever lived in and I’ve lived in a few.     The political corruption fingers through everything from City Hall, to charities, and even our SD&G Highlanders apparently. First you have former MPP Jim Brownell named as Honourary Lt. Colonel.    That was a little weird as […]

Ghomeshi Verdict Shows Need for Attorney General Reform in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 25,2016

Jian Ghomeshi’s life will never be the same.  The countless legal bills incurred, the damage to his reputation, and at the end of the line the loss of quality of life and earnings can never be repaired. Chiefly because there is no real accountability of Crown Attorney’s in Ontario.    Cases have two factors, the […]

Bernadette Clement  Play for the Senate or Judgeship?  March 19, 2016  LTE

Dear Editor,   Ever step into the kind of muck that takes hold of your foot — twist and turn, and you’re more stuck, and deeper in? And when you get loose, you’re minus a shoe, or there’s a clod of mud that won’t come off without a mess on your hands.   Stepping in […]

Conrad Black: University Decision to Remove John A. Macdonald Statue is Cowardly & Disgraceful MARCH 12, 2016

Canada is suffering from a prolonged pandemic of moral self-flagellation promoted by hemophiliac bleeding hearts and militant native agitators.

Wynne Libs War Against Vaping & E Cigs Continues with New Laws by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 10, 2016

Some agendas are more clear than others.    The Ontario government makes a lot of money off of the licensing of tobacco products.   In theory those monies are supposed to offset the high medical costs of traditionally smoked tobacco. E Cigs have grown exponentially with many using them as a tool to refrain from […]

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. It made no sense from a personal view point.    Yes, belonging to a group could be a good thing, but it also can be an […]

Is New EOHU Restaurant Sign Program a Weapon in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JAN 1, 2016

A new sign grading for local eateries goes into effect in 2016.    In theory it’s a great idea giving consumers a clear window via a Green card, inferring safety, yellow, and red for closed.    However in theory Communism is the best form of government which has never really worked out. The issue is […]

Is it Time to Regulate Gasoline Prices in Canada by Jamie Gilcig – DEC 29, 2015

How many times during a week do you hear people ask why the price of gasoline is still so high when the price of oil has dropped so much? While we hear rhetoric about possible issues, the real focus should be on the Federal and Provincial governments allowing for gouging of the public.  Chiefly both […]

Are you Politicked Out Yet & Does Anyone Really Care? by Jamie Gilcig  DEC 23, 2015

It’s interesting to see what hits a button with people and what doesn’t?   In this age of internet newspapers like CFN we get to see direct results by page view counts, comments, and of course Social Media chatter. In 2015 we also live in an age of near Orwellian times.   Mass media, the […]
