Another Pregnancy Issue at the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre by Jamie Gilcig FEB 3, 2017

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – O’Leary in the Shark Tank FEB 3, 2017

As O’Leary or his team commits another blunder by posting a video of him having fun at a shooting range just as the funerals for the Mosque victims in Quebec starts, sharks of every colour- blue, red, orange and green should be circling around him.

It is Time to Clean Up the Cornwall Community Police Service? by Jamie Gilcig JAN 26, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  The Standard Freeholder ran a puff piece spinning a higher amount of complaints about the CCPS. Oddly enough there were less reported crimes in Cornwall in 2016 even though they still are raising their budgets. The police service is a cash cow.  It comes down to money and power.    If you’re […]

Brad D Eamer of Cornwall Wants City to Switch to OPP  JAN 26, 2017

To the Editor . Once again we watch helplessly as our City Council wrestles with our 2017 budget. This city is so desperate to save money that anything and everything is on the table, and rightly so. Council cuts a few thousand here and there, but can’t seem to address the really big budget items. […]

Conrad Black States that Canadians Will Grow To Like Donald Trump JAN 8, 2017

Conrad Black States that Canadians Will Grow To Like Donald Trump JAN 8, 2017

An instant industry has developed in Canada about how to adjust to a Trump presidency, as if the nature of the United States has metamorphosed instantly and unrecognizably. Almost all of this concern is unnecessary. Donald Trump has never expressed any grievances against Canada, and his limited experiences here, from skiing in the Laurentians to […]

Christmas Cronyism in Cornwall as Councilor Hebert Lands Gig @ EOTB by Jamie Gilcig DEC 30, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – Another cronyism hiring in Cornwall Ontario.  As in many smaller cities it’s really hard to get a reasonably good, non minimum wage job,  never mind an actual “Career”.

Another #Epicfail Civic Complex Event Fail Due to Petty Cornwall Politics by Jamie Gilcig DEC 29, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – I always marvel at the depths that the Bob Peters, Bernadette Clement, Guy Lauzon cliques, and their sillier psychophantic followers,  will sink to in proving, that one, they aren’t terribly good at what they do, and two, that whether or not they like it the vast majority of this city reads CFN […]

David Reevely Responds to Team Cornwall Disconnect by Jamie Gilcig DEC 22, 2016
