Are Partisan Ontario Politics Impacting Hospital Wait Times in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig MAY 31, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – With the province rationing health care times a big question that’s starting to loom is whether this City is paying a price for electing Conservative Jim McDonell not once, but twice during this near 15 year run of Liberal governments in the province. Not only that, but the last McGuinty election win […]

Another Cornwall Clique Business Goes Down in Flames Candace Zimmer VITALGLOW May 31, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – I never am happy when a business goes down in flames.  However when it’s a business that boycott’s CFN it takes the sting away a bit.. I mean why would you open a business in a community and not send a release to the largest newspaper?   Why would you refuse to […]

Cornwall Bans Baptist Pastor After Jehovah Witness & Ribfest Complaints  MAY 30, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Whether you agree with his beliefs or not you have to give Pastor Tom Newton of the Calvary Baptist Church in Cornwall an “A” for consistency. Pastor Tom is rarely without a picket sign and his guitar at events in the Cornwall area.  He has never been violent, and while some may […]

Bob Peters Clique Burning Through Cornwall Cash While Staff Get Wages Frozen? MAY 26, 2017

Bob Peters Clique Burning Through Cornwall Cash While Staff Get Wages Frozen?  MAY 26, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Can you imagine a magazine called “Cornwall Living” not really about living in Cornwall?   The vanity magazine is grossly subsidized by Bob Peters and the City via its Economic Development department. You can’t blame TC media who simply are trying to run a business, but when City Staffers are about to […]

Conspiratorial Hate Group Member Bob Noble Plagiarizes Editor’s Manchester Commentary MAY 25, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –   What a weird world the internet and social media are molding.   Out of the pain, fear, and suffering connected to the terrorist attack in Manchester this week an old nasty hate filled man decided to “steal” some poetic words. It worked too with many praising him on social media.  Only […]

P&G Swiffers Jobs in Brockville – 500 Jobs to Be Lost by 2020  MAY 24, 2017

CORNWALL ONTARIO –  It’s ironic.  Even though Brockville is very different than Cornwall Ontario there’s a certain snooty nasty Eastern Ontario Conservativeness that exists there.   Brockville loves to look down their noses at Cornwall and many times there’s cause. Ironically it’s how MPP Steve Clark originally cot into power as Brockville mayor (he served […]

No We Really Don’t Need Fireworks Sales in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig MAY 24, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  I normally am for anything that helps the economy of this community, but a recent move to  support fireworks sales in Cornwall just makes no sense? One of the biggest runaway areas of our budget in Cornwall are our Fire Services.    We have one of the highest rates of fires in Ontario.   Lower […]

Paying it Forward & Why Good Deeds Are Important – by Jamie Gilcig MAY 23, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – I received an email from a college alumni today.  They wanted to use a CFN photo of a certain politician. This numpty financially boycotts this newspaper.  His track record is he got elected back home because of his family name after failing at the political game in a much bigger pond. He’s […]

Mayor & MP’s Picnic All Wet – MP Lauzon Refuses to Disclose Canada Day Budget – by Jamie Gilcig MAY 23, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –   Monday was a rainy drizzly day in Cornwall.  Apparently our mayor, not big on original thought or ideas of his own, tried to team up with another sizzling mind in MP Guy Lauzon to have a partisan party in Lamoureux Parc at taxpayer expense. Did you know about it?  I didn’t. […]

Conrad Black Agrees With President Trump – Dishonest Media Are the Enemy of the People MAY 19, 2017

Even allowing for the astonishing pyrotechnics of current American politics, the Canadian journalistic reaction has been rather disappointing. Canadians have a unique ring-side seat on American personalities and events, and flatter themselves that they know that country better than any other foreigners do. Perhaps because of the garishness of American politics, the immense amounts of […]

Elaine MacDonald Puts Cornwall in Liability Position After Wage Freeze Shadow Negotiations MAY 19, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –   I live in a very strange community.   Here in Cornwall the people that clean city hall can’t run for council.  Yet Elaine MacDonald, President of the Labour Council, can. That’s letting the fox in the henhouse when it comes to the staff that make the city work. Likewise it tends […]

CORNWALL ONTARIO – Cornwall City Council finally agreed at a residential tax hike for this budget of just under 2%.

Cornwall Resident MICHAEL LABELLE Doesn’t Like his Home Town LTE May 12, 2017

What a pleasure to come on my Facebook page and not have to see all the “cop-sucking” by the tin pot dictator running the right wing rag in CONwall. The crime-infested SEWER polluted with HATE MONGERS. The city where city council knows the people are not “intelligent enough to elect city councilors” I could not […]

Why Businesses Need to Be More Professional With Media & Market Smart by Jamie Gilcig MAY 10, 2017

CORNWALL ONTARIO – This morning I received a release from a major Home Store chain.   It was professionally written and normally I’d be intrigued. I emailed back explaining that we’d love to assist, but that we generally don’t do so for businesses that boycott us. That means if we have never sold an ad […]

School Closures Being Politically Massaged in Eastern Ontario by Jamie Gilcig MAY 4, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – One of the biggest problems in managing the school system in Ontario are the multitude of school boards and weakness of politicians to make the right decisions.
