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

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. Again, how many on council actually earn a living other than by the public purse? How many actually […]

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

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. His Friday editorial hits the nail on the head. Instead of dealing with the adversity of the budget for Cornwall […]

Budget Time Highlights Failure of Council in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig DEC 6, 2016

Budget Time Highlights Failure of Council in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig DEC 6, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – In business if you consistently make bad decision you end up shutting down.  Just ask Bryan Merkley. However when it comes to the public purse the cash never stops flowing. There are tipping points and Cornwall has been redlining for awhile now. Denis Carr is back in his seat as budget committee […]

Cornwall Ontario Heckled & May Lose It’s Largest Newspaper by Jamie Gilcig DEC 5, 2016

Cornwall Ontario Heckled & May Lose It’s Largest Newspaper by Jamie Gilcig DEC 5, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – Starting CFN in 2009 has been an amazing experience.   It’s been brutal in many ways exposing the darkest sides of any community I’ve ever seen not in a cheap tv series or movie. While by far my experience with people in this town has been pleasant, it’s been mostly that on […]

Toxic Culture @ Root of School Closings Failures in Cornwall Area by Jamie Gilcig NOV 20, 2016

Toxic Culture @ Root of School Closings Failures in Cornwall Area by Jamie Gilcig NOV 20, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – I left Team Cornwall after a sampling of its former President Gilles Latour, who’s now waiting his court dates from charges of fraud, including of his mother. I also am no longer a member of the Cornwall & Area Chamber of Commerce.    When I first ran for a seat on its […]

Cornwall Ontario Orlando Tribute An Exercise in Hypocrisy by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 18, 2016

Cornwall Ontario Orlando Tribute An Exercise in Hypocrisy by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 18, 2016

I wasn’t invited to the Orlando tribute here in Cornwall on Friday.   Nor was CFN sent a release or invite which is odd as we’re the only newspaper in this community that has not only truly been Gay positive, but actually has sponsored (that’s given actual free advertising for Corus radio types viewing) to […]

Bernadette Clement Play for the Senate or Judgeship? March 19, 2016 LTE

Bernadette Clement  Play for the Senate or Judgeship?  March 19, 2016  LTE

Dear Editor,   Ever step into the kind of muck that takes hold of your foot — twist and turn, and you’re more stuck, and deeper in? And when you get loose, you’re minus a shoe, or there’s a clod of mud that won’t come off without a mess on your hands.   Stepping in […]

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 […]

HOLY GILLES LATOUR! Details on Cornwall Ontario Rip Off King by Jamie Gilcig Jan 12, 2016

HOLY GILLES LATOUR!   Details on Cornwall Ontario Rip Off King by Jamie Gilcig Jan 12, 2016

Gilles Latour represents the very worst of the corruption that is so pervasive in Cornwall Ontario.    The bullying, the abuse, and back room wheeling and dealing.    The former President of Team Cornwall, and Liberal bag man for Bob Kilger and other prominent politicos is alleged to have not cooperated with the MFDA investigation […]

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 […]

Mario Leclerc States that Bernadette Clement Had Easier Ride – LTE Oct 29, 2015

Hello Editor, RE: LTE: NDP did not provide enough change – Cornwall Newswatch It is with great interest I read the opinion expressed by Brian Lynch which I agree in principle. However, there are two elephants in the room that the author failed to mention for understandable reasons. Who has moved the NDP to the […]

Was it Racism & Homophobia That Did in Bernadette Clement’s Campaign? by Jamie Gilcig

Was it Racism & Homophobia That Did in Bernadette Clement’s Campaign? by Jamie Gilcig

Walking through the aftermath and wreckage of the election that just ended CFN has been talking to a lot of voters across the riding asking why they voted for who they chose and why they rejected candidates? Not surprisingly Bernadette Clement was tarred and feathered for being a Francophone woman with many citing allegations that […]

Lauzon A Pigeon With No Roost as Trudeau Gains Majority – Clement Back to Council by Jamie Gilcig

Lauzon A Pigeon With No Roost as Trudeau Gains Majority – Clement Back to Council by Jamie Gilcig

Canadians have spoken, and loudly, condemning Stephen Harper and rebuking his policies to the point of giving Justin Trudeau and his Liberals a full majority. Thomas Mulcair and his NDP fared even worse than Harper sliding back to their traditional less than 50 seats. Locally Guy Lauzon handily beat City Councilor Bernadette Clement for a […]

Of a Veggie Burger & The End of a Very Silly Election by Jamie Gilcig

Of a Veggie Burger & The End of a Very Silly Election by Jamie Gilcig

This has been the most disappointing of elections.   It’s like rows of Neanderthals grunting and throwing poo at each other here in SD&SG with no change expected. CFN was moving towards endorsing the NDP before the writ dropped which would be a first, but the local candidate, Patrick (Veggie) Burger, was so disappointing that […]

Cornwall Councilor Maurice Dupelle Talks Chem Tanks After Lauzon Eruption by Jamie Gilcig OCT 16, 2015

Cornwall Councilor Maurice Dupelle Talks Chem Tanks After Lauzon Eruption by Jamie Gilcig OCT 16, 2015

CFN chatted with Cornwall City Councilor Maurice Dupelle over the Chem Tank scandal and cover up that has leaked its way into the Federal election as Councilor Bernadette Clement is running for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals. While many media and politicos are targeting Lauzon the cover up clearly was by the City of Cornwall.    The […]

A Canadian Election Break Down With One Week to Go by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

A Canadian Election Break Down With One Week to Go by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

So with one week to go where do we stand with one of Canada’s longest elections? Stephen Harper clearly will not enjoy another majority which has many Canadians rejoicing.    Scandal after scandal has plagued his government, but most simply have grown tired of the politics of fear mongering and threats.    As my mentor […]

SD&SG Riding President Calls Incumbent MP A Bully on Social Media by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

SD&SG Riding President Calls Incumbent MP A Bully on Social Media by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

As we get closer to the 19th it seems the local Liberals are feeling the frustration from trailing so badly in the poll numbers.      Or simply they have an utter boob as a riding President and simply didn’t replace him as they never had much hope of actually winning?   At the 8 […]

Will Justin Trudeau Drop Clement As SD&SG Candidate Over Chem Tanks? By Jamie Gilcig OCT 10, 2015

Will Justin Trudeau Drop Clement As SD&SG Candidate Over Chem Tanks? By Jamie Gilcig OCT 10, 2015

With the reinforcement of the City Council that SD&SG Federal Liberal Candidate Bernadette Clement was a key part of covering up the Chem Tank contract from the public can Justin Trudeau afford a potential scandal? Clearly City Hall knew about the Chem Tanks nearly a year before they were constructed and by hiding that information […]
