From Vilifying John A. MacDonald to Antifa –  Our society is under attack.  By Conrad Black 090217

The mindless deferences to native blood libels against 95 per cent of Canadians should be replaced by the efficient placation of legitimate grievances; no less, and no more Police fire pepper spray at protesters during a demonstration in downtown Washington after the inauguration of President Donald Trump on Jan. 20, 2017. From within. The incessant […]

Brenda Norman & Garlic Fest Highlight Cornwall Racism in Maclean’s by Jamie Gilcig 083017

Cornwall Ontario – Brenda Norman is a petty political toe rag that has now bit the hand that’s fed her.   Not even from Cornwall, but from Quebec,  she embraced the worst elements of the clique to get her Garlic Fest up and running making it yet another poorly attended clique event that you didn’t […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – A Mini Cabinet Shuffle 082917

Ottawa Ontario – Ottawa awoke from its summer slumber today when Trudeau or perhaps more accurately his PMO staff decided to put together a small cabinet shuffle.

Time For Trudeau Gov’t to Stop Politicizing Refugee Programs.  By Jamie Gilcig 082817

Cornwall Ontario – There’s nothing more frightening than having to flee for your life from a war torn country.

Was There No Crime in Cornwall for 5 Days?  No Reports From CCPS 081728

Cornwall Ontario – With a budget of approximately $18M per year it’s boggling how the Cornwall Community Police Service under Chief Dan Parkinson and a police board chaired by Andre Rivette refuses to communicate with the public. Where other nearby services put out notices in a timely fashion our police service reveals less than 2% […]

Cornwall Ontario – Blaring headlines are all over Canadian media with the news of Senator Mike Duffy suing the RCMP and Senate for close to eight million dollars.

CFN Will Not be Covering the Cornwall Nationals Due to Rodney Rivette 082317

Cornwall Ontario – Hockey is a challenging business in this community.  Heck, just about any business is challenging in Cornwall due to our depressed economy. CFN has a strong and successful history of supporting events and groups (when we’ve been allowed to) but the chicanery and mayhem that ranges from corruption from City Hall to […]

Cornwall Ontario Refuses Free Bus Passes to NAV CAN Refugees 082317

CORNWALL ONTARIO –   Elaine Macdonald should not be on Cornwall City Council.  The President of the Labour Council has been in conflict on more than one occasion.  She’s petty, ignorant at times, and corrupt.   But like all people we all have our good and bad sides. She championed a very very smart play […]

Should Canada Build A Wall & Bill President Trump Personally?  By Jamie Gilcig 081917

Cornwall Ontario – As NAV Can gets filled at the taxpayer’s expense as I type these words I think it’s time to maybe consider building a wall in this region between the US and Canada and send the bill to US President Donald Trump. Now I don’t mean to send to the bill to the […]

Looking Forward @ Canada Day in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 081417

Cornwall Ontario – So after my editorial about Guy Lauzon’s partisan control over Canada Day here in Cornwall a lot of chatter and great ideas have been floated through my inboxes.

If Premier Couillard Really Wants Anglos to Return to Quebec. By Jamie Gilcig 081417

Cornwall Ontario –   I’m a refugee of Quebec.  One of the multitude of Anglos that left (along with a lot of  Francophones) for a multitude of reasons. I write this the day after helping empty my Mom’s Cote des Neiges apartment and finding an album of pics from the two short films I shot […]
