New Regimes in South Stormont & South Glengarry May Spell Change 102518

New Regimes in South Stormont & South Glengarry May Spell Change 102518

Cornwall Ontario – Unlike Cornwall’s vote both South Stormont and South Glengarry voters sent a message that change was desired; chiefly fiscal change.   In South Stormont this is chiefly ironic as Cornwall CAO Maureen Adams and many Sunshine list decision makers in Cornwall reside in the township.   IE, they don’t support the #taxrape and corruption […]

Pink Mafia & Labour Hijack Cornwall Election – McGillis Back in South Stormont – 2018 Election Coverage 231018

Pink Mafia & Labour Hijack Cornwall Election – McGillis Back in South Stormont – 2018 Election Coverage 231018

Cornwall Ontario –  It was a flawed election Monday night.   Clearly there was an issue with the electronic voting as the city’s website kept flashing to zero votes and then trickling in amounts. Electronic voting is hinky at best.   Stories have been done about kids hacking the system. For the second term long time Councilor […]

The Cornwall Election That Really Wasn’t. By Jamie Gilcig 221018

The Cornwall Election That Really Wasn’t.  By Jamie Gilcig 221018

Cornwall Ontario –   They say in 12 Step that you can’t truly start your recovery until you hit rock bottom. This 2018 election normally would be that rock bottom.  Time will tell if it’s so. A corrupt city management and council have essentially rigged the election.   All you have to do is look at who […]

Picking the Lesser Evil for the Cornwall Ontario 2018 Election by Julie Johnston 101918

Picking the Lesser Evil for the Cornwall Ontario 2018 Election by Julie Johnston 101918

Picking the lesser evil! Four years ago, I voted for Leslie O’Shaughnessy because Bob Kilger allowed the city to crucify whistleblowers and chose to protect the abusers instead! So I chose the lesser evil! My gut at the time knew that O’Shaughnessy would be no different but I took the chance that maybe, just maybe, […]

Any Cornwall Candidate that Supports the BMO Arts Centre Doesn’t Deserve Your Vote by Jamie Gilcig 101818

Any Cornwall Candidate that Supports the BMO Arts Centre Doesn’t Deserve Your Vote by Jamie Gilcig 101818

Cornwall politics are essentially shameless, corrupt, and frankly the government we collectively deserve. No other issue highlights this better than the BMO farcical art centre hustle. Essentially for over 30 years the city doled out a very very meagre amount of money to sustain the charity that was our Public Art Gallery.  Run by fumble […]

Cornwall Resident Puts Riverdale House Up for Sale After Election Candidate Disgust LTE 101718

Cornwall Resident Puts Riverdale House Up for Sale After Election Candidate Disgust LTE 101718

Please excuse the edits.  It is the city of Cornwall that educated me. They did not do a very good job on the English. Please read the additions. It is to laugh. There is not a Mayor candidate in this election that is worth supporting. The councilors are not any better. They are totally out of […]

If You Don’t See Your Election Candidate Ad on CFN Don’t Vote for Them by Jamie Gilcig 101218

If You Don’t See Your Election Candidate Ad on CFN Don’t Vote for Them by Jamie Gilcig 101218

Cornwall Ontario – CFN has over 1 million human pageviews monthly.   It’s been that way for a awhile, but what quite a few people, and sadly many in the political and business realms locally, don’t get is that whether they like this newspaper, its publisher, or writers, and content is that the majority of the […]

Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy Confronted at Civic Complex Debate by Julie Johnston 101118

Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy Confronted at Civic Complex Debate by Julie Johnston  101118

Cornwall Ontario – Last night’s meet, greet, and debate revealed that politicians do lie and I and Council candidate Brent Charles was surprised to finally get an honest answer from Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy regarding his failures and lies broken promises as a mayor. During the meet and greet, O’Shaughnessy was asked about the justification of the approximately […]

It’s Time to Stop Giving the Cornwall Colts a Free Ride by Jamie Gilcig 100418

It’s Time to Stop Giving the Cornwall Colts a Free Ride by Jamie Gilcig 100418

Cornwall Ontario – Geez there are fire sales and bad deals,  and there is the sweetheart deal that the City of Cornwall is giving the Cornwall Colts for some reason?   I mean this is worse than a Marc Bergevin trade. At issue is that the city has two facilities that have far too much empty […]

Cornwall Mayoralty Debate Exposes Lack of Leadership by Julie Johnston 100418

Cornwall Mayoralty Debate Exposes Lack of Leadership by Julie Johnston 100418

Cornwall Ontario – Last night’s debate involving the four Mayoral candidates revealed true colours and where “THEIR” priorities are. Bernadette continues to show her preference on an art center yet cries about the “poor” in the same breath. The tactic of repeating and repeating the same words like “infrastructure”,  “art center,” “partners” felt like a brainwashing […]

Whistle-blower Forum 2018 Election & 2014 Election Broken Promises Pt 3 by Diane Shay 100118

Whistle-blower Forum 2018 Election & 2014 Election Broken Promises Pt 3  by Diane Shay 100118

  Cornwall Ontario – October 22, 2018 is almost here. Time to reflect before casting that vote. In the words of Albert Einstein: “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil but because of those who look on and do nothing” …which continues to reflect this Councils lack of ability […]

Is Democracy Dead in Cornwall Ontario? By Jamie Gilcig 082818

Is Democracy Dead in Cornwall Ontario?  By Jamie Gilcig 082818

Cornwall Ontario – Democracy dies when people don’t tend to it.  That means voting. It means being active more than just at elections. It means becoming aware to some degree of what the monkeys at City Hall get up to.   I mean we have a city clerk that can’t even get candidate contact information correct […]

Bernadette Clement Lies to the Public as She Runs for Mayor by Jamie Gilcig 082318

Cornwall Ontario –  Lawyers can be a smart bunch, cagey too.   It’s rare to get them “on the record” unless they want to be on the record which is why it’s so much fun to get them to chat off the record when the opportunity arises. “Flipper is as good a politician as she is […]

The Whistle-blower Forum by Diane Shay – Election Promises Broken re: Transparency, Integrity & Accountability in Cornwall

The Whistle-blower Forum by Diane Shay –  Election Promises Broken re:  Transparency, Integrity & Accountability in Cornwall

“The world will not be destroyed by evil but by those who watch without doing anything” Albert Einstein. Well it’s that time again to renew councils contracts through our election process. When one is hired to do a specific job and fails miserably should they get their contracts extended another four years? This question will […]

2018 Cornwall Election Candidate Meeting Cancelled for Thursday August 9, 2018

2018 Cornwall Election Candidate Meeting Cancelled for Thursday August 9, 2018

Cornwall Ontario –  What an odd Municipal election this is.   Almost no media coverage to date and an invite for an evening for council and mayoralty candidates to meet at the Knights of Columbus Hall for tonight was cancelled due to several candidates refusing to attend. The meeting would have been open to the public. […]

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 […]

So After a Busy Weekend of Listening Do You Want Me to Run? Election 2018 & Brampton 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 071618

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 […]
