Budget Time Highlights Failure of Council in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig DEC 6, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – In business if you consistently make bad decision you end up shutting down.  Just ask Bryan Merkley. However when it comes to the public purse the cash never stops flowing. There are tipping points and Cornwall has been redlining for awhile now. Denis Carr is back in his seat as budget committee […]

Local Impact for Cornwall Ontario Tenders & Why Isn’t Ed Lumley Buying the Complex New Seats by Jamie Gilcig

I know.  What an odd picture to header a column, but then, this is an odd town with an ever odder City Council. The problem is the old adage, “You get the politicians you deserve.” After all, this is a town that over 4,000 people voted for Robert Brock Frost, and hardly anyone voted for […]

Did David Murphy & Bob Kilger Kill The Cornwall River Kings?   Is Benson’s an Owner of the Colts?

CORNWALL Ontario  –  Alas the River Kings, we knew them well. That David Murphy is quite a guy.  He likes to sound like a game show host, but he also appears to be a  string puller in the background using his clout at City Hall and with the Benson Group. As a matter of fact […]

CORNWALL Ontario – Whatever happened to all those tax dollars spent on the Benson Vanity University project?   The study still has yet to be released to the public.   Looking at the names on the committee above we can see that most have fortunes of their own or multiple tax paid jobs and pensions, […]
