Jack Layton proposes National Pension Insurance Program – NORTEL

Jack Layton proposes National Pension Insurance Program – NORTEL

It’s so odd that we have to legislate things that should be a given or simply reinforce what should be laws.   Company A stiffs their employees and essentially gets off the hook with all of their executives in the clear.    Bad Desperate Man holds up a Cab and ends up in prison. I like Jack […]

Local TV – Separating the BS from Reality – CRTC – FREE TV

Up until the death of Analog TV you could put up your antenna and pull in free local signals.  That’s how TV has worked for years.   The ability to put up a transmitter was strictly enforced by the Government via the CRTC which controls radio and tv and what licensing fees are paid and what […]

Mayor Kilger frets over Cities Image – Youth Not Happy – No Dollars for Arts in Cornwall – Bridge Crisis still ongoing – Cornwall Ontario – Tourism

Wow, that’s a mouthful.   L I N K “Kilger didn’t completely rule out the prospect of taking on additional projects such as a new arts centre — an idea which has been floating around for some time — however he cautioned that the city’s financial picture will have to be kept in mind. “We’re […]

People’s Fire Video – www.awkwesasnepeoplesfire.com – UPDATE

This video was just posted on http://www.akwesasnepeoplesfire.com/ which is a website with a unique insight into the goings on at the tent in Akwesasne.   There’s so much spin out there and so much that hasn’t been covered.  It’s good to see the perspective from those at the center of the storm. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQQNz0FKCKI&feature=player_embedded I think […]

So why does Cornwall want Fewer City Councilors? Who gains and what are the impact of such a possibility? CORNWALL ONTARIO

So why does Cornwall want Fewer City Councilors?  Who gains and what are the impact of such a possibility?  CORNWALL ONTARIO

A tiny item snuck through this week’s city council meeting in Cornwall.    I love how council defers tough issues to city management for assessment and reports.  Usually it’s done so with the tacit goal of management coming back with justification with council’s desire. So is this concept of reducing city council about power?  Right now […]

Free Holder Writer’s Story picked up Nationally – Bourque.org and the Sun – CORNWALL ONTARIO – Kevin Lajoie

It’s funny how a story can be changed by a little […]

You can’t fight City Hall – Especially in Cornwall – City Fails residents of Glengarry Apartments – Cornwall Ontario October 13, 2009

Normally this entry would be filled with video clips and photos inspired by the words and actions of our Cornwall City Council and Mayor. I’m not doing that tonight, because frankly tonight I’m very disappointed. Today was a let down.   It showed the lack of vision by many on council and the lack of truly […]

Cornwall City Council – Tuesday October 13, 2009 – Hot Topic GLENGARRY APARTMENTS condo conversion

Tonight should be a busy Cornwall City Council meeting.    If you’ve never seen how your town works you should stop by and watch.  It’s free and can be very entertaining as well as educational. Like they say; whomever “they” are; “If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem.” The topic du […]

Akwesasne Bridge Crisis Update – Monday October 12, 2009 SEAWAY INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE – Cornwall Ontario – EDITORIAL

The trusses are up at the winter base being built  next to the CBSA post on the Island.   I stopped by early Saturday morning.   Everything was wet and mucky, but moving forward. There was a turkey dinner served today, and a fundraiser as people are digging in and preparing for the winter.    There’s also been […]

2008 Deficit Numbers released – How bad did Stephen Harper blow it?

L I N K “When the final calculations for 2008 are released, that shortfall is expected to come in at $5.8 billion. That’s nothing, however, compared to the $55.9 billion annual deficit the Conservatives predict for 2009 as they flood the country with money in a bid to offset the impact of the recession.” This […]
