Mission Statement & Contact Us

The Cornwall Free News – Canada’s Largest & Most Read Gonzo Newspaper Online 24/7!

Gonzo journalism is a style of journalism that is written without claims of objectivity, often including the reporter as part of the story via a first-person narrative.

2000px-Gonzo.svgThe word “gonzo” is believed to be first used in 1970 to describe an article by Hunter S. Thompson, who later popularized the style.

Mission Statement

CFN is an online newspaper whose Mission is to give voice to the many who’d never have an opportunity to have a voice whether via op-ed, letters, or comments on stories.

To be non-partisan and allow voices to be heard even though our ownership, editors, staff, sponsors, and viewers may not always agree with them.

For people to have voice, but still do so in a safe manner although they may be challenged strongly for those opinions.

And that by creating a forum to share unfiltered news and opinions that we may as a society speak to each other and exchange ideas that can lead to growth of our culture, community and society in a positive manner and show people that they do count; their voices do count, and that anyone can change their world.

Our Vision

CFN’s vision is to see our community participate in a lively discussion of the issues that matter to them no matter how small or obscure.   We want to nourish and help create strong voices.

In these days of spoon fed values and massive societal conformity for people to think about issues and not just follow the pack.   Whether it be questioning why decisions are made or confronting people and holding them accountable; CFN’s vision is to help empower people while educating and entertaining.

The news can be a living thing.   And one newspaper can be very different than others.   We also want to create a haven to attract the most talented people in the Universe where they can excel and gain from their talents, voices, and artistry with less restrictions, not more.

CFN is not just “the news”  It’s people’s views.  It’s what they are passionate about.   It’s about showing the world what they can do or what they’ve done.

    What the hell is wrong with our Cornwall city police force. They are rude arregent don’t care about the public and when you go see them for help its just the run around. This is unaccdeptable service and PR

    Hi I would just like to say there is way too much closed door meetings. What is the city hidding with all the closed door meetings. We do need a new mayor that will let the people know what is going on instead of all the secrets we have now

  4. Hugger1   August 11, 2014 at 8:49 AM

    The stupid thing about closed meetings is that they could be happenin more often. I happened to find the rules for them one time and council could go into closed meetings to discuss purchasing light bulbs, if they chose to do so.

    Folks this is the wrong section for your comments. Please post in the story or category page where the discussion is occurring. Thanks!

    Hi Jamie…I don’t usually comment on all the BS that goes on in our corrupt little city but I have seen that name Kevin Dockery splashed in your NEWSPAPER (not blog) and I would like to run something by you. Next time that idiot Dockery has a comment for you ask him why he lost his job at Prince/Olymel foods? A little birdie tells me that it’s because of {MODERATED} So with that said if anyone believes a word that comes out of that liar’s mouth than they are just as ignorant as Dockery is.

    Take care.

    Both my husband and I wished to vote, but only one of us is allowed. You are missing a pile of votes using this method.

    Claire our polls go by IP numbers. If you only have one internet account in your home you can only vote once.

    This online newspaper gets more beautiful every time I see it.

    As a tax paying citizen. I have a large issue with the Cornwall Beerfest being moved and allowed to be hosted at Lamoureux park. How is it an event that is 100% for profit that has been moved from the Nav Centre due to an incredibly bad business deal on the organizers part now been moved to city land with a city councilor (Towndale) as the sponsorship co-ordinator who also stands to make money off of the event.

    There are some huge issues here. I am a fan of the event. But something incredibly fishy is going on here. Would love to see you investigate.
