Is the Fix In as Council Give Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger Signing Rights Over Harbour Lands by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – While Mayor Bob Kilger and his council in Cornwall can spin the current discussions with the Federal Government over the Harbour lands, the bottom line is that council gave a green light with a 8-1 vote (councilor Samson was in Florida again) for the Mayor and Clerk (herself a lawyer) to sign […]

Is Mayor Kilger Soaking Cornwall Ontario in Secret Waterfront Negotiations? MEETING 8PM March 18, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – Like something out of the movie Chinatown it looks like the Mayor and some of his team have been caught gerrymandering in the dark with regards to the divestiture of Harbour lands in Cornwall.

Sounds like Mark A MacDonald is Campaigning in Cornwall Ontario – LTE March 2, 2014

The colossal mistake of building chemical storage tanks on our waterfront is a prime example of a city council lacking clear direction, which I must take some responsibility for. We desperately need a city council that can focus on an agenda that will bring some meaningful progress to our city. Resignations, criminal charges, huge payoffs and secret […]

Mark A MacDonald Doesn’t Believe Cornwall Officials Were Powerless Over Illegal Chem Tanks on Waterfront – Letter to the Editor

Are you kidding me, city officials are powerless to stop the construction of the illegal chemical storage tanks that are being built on our waterfront!   This is insane.

CORNWALL Ontario – Guess who wrote this commentary? It’s city council’s main responsibility. Once a year they decide how to spend your tax dollars, my tax dollars.

The 11th Councilor by Jamie Gilcig – How Much did the Kilger Council Spend on the My Place Event that drew 67 out of 45K citizens?

CORNWALL Ontario – The City of Cornwall has spent a lot of money hiring a team of consultants to initiate a new study, in an election year, focused on Cornwall being our place.  Of course it’s phrased “My Place” and judging from the behavior of the Mayor and his cronies on council the term has […]

The 11th Councilor by Jamie Gilcig – Why did Andre Rivette Support $10K Consultant on Cornwall Ontario City Council Pay Raise Question? Jan 29, 2014
