Open Letter to Ontario Premier Doug Ford Regarding MinComs and Media in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 080318

Dear Doug, I sit here in my office of my struggling Independent media outlet.   An outlet that was fair and friendly with you during the election. Even though we’re the largest in our market with large audiences in other key Ontario markets we received zero advertising from your campaign or the PC party during the […]

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 […]

City of Cornwall Runs Up Legal Bill Acquiring Mayor’s Personal Judgment 072718

It’s Time for Fire Insurance By Laws in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072718

It’s Time for Fire Insurance By Laws in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072718

Cornwall Ontario – Another major fire in Cornwall Ontario.  Another round of appeals for help from “victims” who’ve lost everything. It’s tragic, but for many it’s a self inflicted wound that also impacts the community. In Ontario renters insurance can be had for as little as $15 per month.  That’s a package of cigarettes or […]

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 […]

Justin Trudeau – The Hypocrite-In-Chief by Warren Kinsella 070918

“I strongly deny the groping allegation that I already admitted to and apologized for.”   WARRENKINSELLA.COM – That is Justin Trudeau’s defence in the ongoing groping scandal, basically. And it is so truly pathetic, so fucking ludicrous, satirical news show The Beaverton ridiculed it with that very headline. The shifting, shifty prevarications of the Prime Minister of […]

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.

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 […]

Justin Trudeau’s Political Suicide is Not Pretty to Watch – by Jamie Gilcig 070718

Cornwall Ontario – Justin Trudeau has been an interesting politician.  Tailor made for the strange age we live in.  He’s visual more than substantial.   There have been no great ideas or National directions emanated from him during his entire political career unlike his father, whom whether you agreed or notas PM,  clearly was a leader […]

BMO Donates to Winchester Hospital After Cashing in on Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 070618

Cornwall Ontario –  Some irate taxpayers in Cornwall were offended when they read that the Bank of Montreal just sent a big bag of cash over to the Winchester Hospital instead of CCH, especially as Cornwall just bought it’s old empty BMO building on Pitt Street,  in need of millions of dollars of renovations,  for […]

Cornwall Ontario –   And it’s on!   Premier Doug Ford essentially told Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to jam his illegal immigration influx that is costing taxpayers millions of dollars per year and straining resources across the board in Ontario.   Trudeau visited the Premier in what appears to be the day after Ontario stopped cooperating when it […]
