David Reevely Responds to Team Cornwall Disconnect by Jamie Gilcig DEC 22, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – Some Cornwallites can be hyper sensitive about any discussion of the reality of our community.    They don’t want to look at failures or miscues, but instead simply raise taxes and hope the issues go away, or simply bully those who point out that our many wannabee emperors are in fact wearing […]

Taxation Without Representation in Cornwall as Water Taxes Going Up – by Jamie Gilcig DEC 20, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – It’s only 1.48%, but how many in Cornwall are not seeing their incomes go up by that much?  And of course while the percentage may sound small, these taxes rarely if ever go down.

Hugo is Right – Cornwall City Council Should Not be Delaying Budget by Jamie Gilcig DEC 11, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO –  Unlike Hugo “The Hack” Rodrigues at the Freeholder, I’m not afraid to give someone credit when credit is due.  Nor do I not mention their name like a silly silly petty person.
