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 […]

Are you Politicked Out Yet & Does Anyone Really Care? by Jamie Gilcig DEC 23, 2015

Are you Politicked Out Yet & Does Anyone Really Care? by Jamie Gilcig  DEC 23, 2015

It’s interesting to see what hits a button with people and what doesn’t?   In this age of internet newspapers like CFN we get to see direct results by page view counts, comments, and of course Social Media chatter. In 2015 we also live in an age of near Orwellian times.   Mass media, the […]

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 […]

Dear Cornwall Ontario re: Ryan Gosling by Jamie Gilcig DEC 7, 2015

It was quite amusing to see some local media get excited by our homey Ryan Gosling mentioning Cornwall on Saturday Night Live, a NBC comedic institution led by Canuck Lorne Michaels who hails from Winterpeg.   As many know Ryan, who was born in London, grew up here and got his break via Montreal.   […]

Media Thoughts on Viewer Comments As CBC and Others Shut Them Down by Jamie Gilcig DEC 1, 2015

In a quadruple media reference this morning a very interesting topic was discussed; online comments by viewers. The media trend now is to shut them down.   Locally the Postmedia owned Standard Freeholder has had them shut down for quite awhile, while two other outlets hyper moderate.   In our market we have the only […]

Cornwall City Councilor Brock Frost Messes Up Again by Jamie Gilcig – OCT 5, 2015

Cornwall City Councilor Brock Frost Messes Up Again by Jamie Gilcig – OCT 5, 2015

In a sadly consistent turn Cornwall Ontario City Councilor Robert Brock Frost released another inaccurate  statement to the public, this time involving the lawsuits against himself and local media outlets that published his original defamatory statements. . Court documents reveal quite clearly that the case is still alive, no costs have been awarded, and that the […]

What Makes a City Home by Jamie Gilcig – Thoughts on a Rainy Day in Cornwall OCT 1, 2015

What Makes a City Home by Jamie Gilcig  – Thoughts on a Rainy Day in Cornwall OCT 1, 2015

I had to drive into Montreal for a physical.  I’m very lucky, and have had the same amazing Doctor in Westmount since 1984.   I think it’s been ten years since he stopped accepting patients, and I’m forever grateful to the late Ivan Eaton for turning me onto a very special doctor. I was born […]

The Thimbleheads & I Love Garlic – OR Silly Clique Politics Strike Again in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig

So I have a friend who is an amazing grower.   He has a maple sugar bush and grows many strains of amazing Organic Garlic. He called asking if I was going to be at the fest Sunday.    I said nope.  I would be catching up on house work, catching up on Kat Denning’s […]

Todd & Mac Get Spanky Over Ashley Madison & Methadone in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig

Wow!   Perusing the last few issues of TC Media’s Seaway News it was kinda funny watching Todd & Mac try and tag team. Mr. Lihou must be cranky of late.  He’s taken shots at moi and Freeholder editor Hugo Rodrigues recently.   Of course looking at the page count of the last few issues […]

I Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

I  Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

  While this disturbing, but hotly awesome piece of video is going viral it shows a few things about politics in Canada in 2015. One that the Harperites are extremely unhappy with the Mike Duffy saga; not so much for what Duffy did, but for how it’s played out. Does any reasonable Canadian really believe […]

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

  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 […]
