Hugo Rodrigues Pandering to Cornwall Over Wasted Amazon HQ2 Bid by Gilcig 102817

Cornwall Ontario –   It’s tough being number one sometimes.  It means the jealous kids won’t play with you much; at least the underdeveloped and really immature ones. For example I have a lot of media peers outside of Cornwall that I get along with, and even sometimes collaborate with, but not here in Cornwall.   When […]

O’Shaughnessy Pulls a Kilger as Freeholder Reports to Ombudsman.  By Jamie Gilcig 092317

Cornwall Ontario –  Oddly enough the Standard Freeholder was pretty much silent when this writer took our very hypocritical Mayor and two councilors to court over their gross conflict of interest over the utter joke that was the Benson Vanity University project that the mayor and councillors Elaine Macdonald, and Carilyne Hebert sit on.   […]

Amazon PR Stunt by Bob Peters Highlights Reason for Change in Economic Dev092117

Cornwall Ontario –  Economic Development is one of the biggest envelopes in the City of Cornwall’s budget.  It also now entails tourism. Sadly, under the reign of Mark Boileau & Bob Peters it’s been an underperforming joke.  Oddly enough Boileau was promoted up and Peters was given tourism and some outside agencies; IE more responsibility.

Cornwall Ontario Refuses Free Bus Passes to NAV CAN Refugees 082317

CORNWALL ONTARIO –   Elaine Macdonald should not be on Cornwall City Council.  The President of the Labour Council has been in conflict on more than one occasion.  She’s petty, ignorant at times, and corrupt.   But like all people we all have our good and bad sides.
