Why I Will be Boycotting the Seaway Food Festival & All 11 Eateries by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 8, 2016

Why I Will be Boycotting the Seaway Food Festival & All 11 Eateries by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 8, 2016

As some of you know CFN has been the victim of a conspiratorial boycott led by City Hall since 2012.    In its 4th year the tentacles sadly extend through the community. City Hall actually had their lawyer state that the largest newspaper in the community is a blog.  A very odd thing to say, but […]

Yes Virgina, It’s Time to Stop the City Hall Led Boycott of CFN JAN 21, 2016

Yes Virgina, It’s Time to Stop the City Hall Led Boycott of CFN  JAN 21, 2016

10,000,000 is a very very large number.   Can you imagine the impact on Cornwall and area businesses if they had those impressions instead of through google ads? CFN had an early policy of not having digital ads as we wanted to focus on local, but due to a most likely illegal boycott led by […]

Is New EOHU Restaurant Sign Program a Weapon in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JAN 1, 2016

Is New EOHU Restaurant Sign Program a Weapon in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JAN 1, 2016

A new sign grading for local eateries goes into effect in 2016.    In theory it’s a great idea giving consumers a clear window via a Green card, inferring safety, yellow, and red for closed.    However in theory Communism is the best form of government which has never really worked out. The issue is […]

Go Home Mohammed – More Cornwall Ontario Racism Highlighted in CBC Story of Girls Hockey Game

Go Home Mohammed – More Cornwall Ontario Racism Highlighted in CBC Story of Girls Hockey Game

I mulled over whether to write this story or not.    I get abused and attacked every time I highlight something negative about our city; even though what I write about is true. When I wrote about Swastikas in a local high school and used the R word it led to being legally bullied by […]

CFN Subscription Drive – Do You Value Independent Media?  OCT 26, 2015

It’s that time of the year!    Twice per year we ask you, our dear CFN viewers to support your favorite source for independent media. All you had to do was watch the coverage from this last election to see how important not only independent media are, but that your voice gets to be heard […]

Kilger or O’Shaughnessy? Who’s the Better Mayor of Cornwall? POLL August 16, 2015

Kilger or O’Shaughnessy?  Who’s the Better Mayor of Cornwall?  POLL  August 16, 2015

I was chatting with a veteran Cornwall politico this week and the subject turned to a common one; whether current Cornwall mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy was an improvement over the man he defeated, Bob Kilger? This was after Les lost a key vote on hiring of fire fighters at Monday night’s council meeting.   I pointed […]

2,183, 770 Human Page Views for CFN in June 2015 – Where did you advertise? NUMBERS

2,183, 770 Human Page Views for CFN in June 2015 – Where did you advertise?   NUMBERS

  The one consistent when I’ve entertained offers to purchase CFN these past three years has been the request that I remain in some capacity with the paper.    The negotiations that have commenced this week are no different in that aspect. The one big difference was that Cornwall be dropped.    The non local […]

Time for Harper MP Guy Lauzon to Not Run Canada Day in Cornwall & City Ad Boycott of Largest Media  June 30, 2015

Oh Canada!   Tomorrow is July 1st.  Sadly you won’t see CFN participating in our local event that is about to be rained out (bad karma thanks to Guy) as our MP has hijacked Canada Festivities in our city. Canada Day, above all days, should be inclusive and community building.  Sadly our MP runs the […]

The CFN $100,000 Cornwall Challenge for 2015 CLICK FOR DETAILS

CFN represents an interesting cross roads in journalism. Is news different than entertainment? Has the news become too corporate? Are media outlets too afraid to report news for fear of losing clients? Can you trust anything you read if jaundiced by that? Does the public care about important issues? How can they care about important […]

2014 CFN Naughty & Nice List & O’Shaughnessy Council Back to the Future Beginning by Jamie Gilcig

2014 CFN Naughty & Nice List & O’Shaughnessy Council Back to the Future Beginning by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – Alas many of us had hope for change after Mayor Bob Kilger and three of his henchmen were bounced in the last election. There was a clear message from the people that change was wanted in our city, but sadly, as some predicted, that change has not occurred, at least not yet. […]

Yes, the CFN Boycott is an Election Issue in the 2014 Cornwall Ontario Election by Jamie Gilcig

Yes, the CFN Boycott is an Election Issue in the 2014 Cornwall Ontario Election by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – Since December 2011 The City of Cornwall, and in particular Mayor Kilger, has led a boycott that has impacted CFN.  It was borne of a lie and has spread its tentacles wide and deep not only hurting our news outlet; but hurting the community and economy of our city. CFN is an […]

When Old Ontario Liberals Get Upset LOOK OUT! Former MPP Jim Brownell on the Rampage by Jamie Gilcig July 19, 2014

When Old Ontario Liberals Get Upset LOOK OUT! Former MPP Jim Brownell on the Rampage by Jamie Gilcig July 19, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – Jim Brownell is very upset.  He’s ranting on his facebook page about yours truly. His invective is pretty out there for the normally mild mannered and polite retired school teacher and former Liberal MPP for our riding. I have been a huge supporter of Mr. Brownell, but sadly; due to the Liberal […]
