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

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Brutal Real Estate Sales Downturn Impact Cornwall Ontario Economy & Highlight Leadership Failures by Jamie Gilcig – JUNE 18, 2015

Over a dozen Cornwall real estate agents have been lamenting the weak market we’re seeing this season.  Inventory is fat and sales are few and far between.

Jim Brownell Being Keynote at Team Cornwall AGM is Like Gilles Latour Hosting a Mother’s Day Event by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – The latest presser from Team Cornwall announcing Jim Brownell as the key speaker shows how disconnected the group has become.

Don’t Blame the OPP if There Are No Charges Laid in the Andrew Olivier Sudbury By Election by Jamie Gilcig

CFN – Don’t blame the OPP if there are no charges filed over the Sudbury By Election.  Recordings published by Liberal hopeful Andrew Olivier are on the internet and there is an investigation, but as many police can tell you it ends up in the hands of the Crown.   And the Crown, which is […]
