Randy Sauve Rants as Comicfest Flops at Civic Complex 102918

Cornwall Ontario –  There’s a certain ignorance and nastiness in Cornwall that’s embodied in people like my former neighbor Randy Sauve. There’s no crime in not being bright or capable of running one’s life without baby bonus.  There is when you stalk and rant after people who can create and build things without government assistance […]

The Cornwall Election That Really Wasn’t.  By Jamie Gilcig 221018

Cornwall Ontario –   They say in 12 Step that you can’t truly start your recovery until you hit rock bottom. This 2018 election normally would be that rock bottom.  Time will tell if it’s so. A corrupt city management and council have essentially rigged the election.   All you have to do is look at who […]

Whistleblower Forum by Diane Shay – Cornwall Ontario Just Isn’t Safe 101918

Well, I have made several trips to Cornwall over the last six month to find a home. Over time I felt less and less comfortable in these surroundings and I finally had to admit to myself that I just don’t feel safe in Cornwall. There are some very nice homes even though the taxes are […]

If You Don’t See Your Election Candidate Ad on CFN Don’t Vote for Them by Jamie Gilcig 101218

Cornwall Ontario – CFN has over 1 million human pageviews monthly.   It’s been that way for a awhile, but what quite a few people, and sadly many in the political and business realms locally, don’t get is that whether they like this newspaper, its publisher, or writers, and content is that the majority of the […]

Bad Management & Council Lead to High Taxes in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Bad Management & Council Lead to High Taxes in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Cornwall Ontario – The city likes to give out voodoo numbers when it comes to tax increases, but the bottom line is the bottom line.  If you raise taxes nearly 20% per term without increasing revenues something always gives out. Even worse, if you borrow money to pay for a tax increase, as Cornwall did […]

Wanna Buy a Newspaper?  Turn Key Cornwall Regional Eyeballs – CFN FOR SALE

February will be the tenth anniversary of this newspaper.   That’s a long time and a lot of hard work. It’s resulted in over 1 million human pageviews monthly.      LINK Sadly, CFN never became the creative fount of positivity I envisioned when I started this venture in February of 2009.   You can’t do creative marketing […]

We Get the Government We Deserve – Taxes to Go Up Nearly 5% in 2018 Election Year by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario – When I ran for Mayor of Cornwall in 2014 I was really clear about our number one issue, taxes. I had a clear plan that would cut taxes by 5%.   Now knowing the lay of the land; my false police charges, still not held accountable for by a corrupt police chief, crown […]

Did You Know Aulstville Filmfest Was this Weekend – Politics Mar Events in Cornwall 012818

More Cronyism in Cornwall w Lajoie Hiring for Tourism as Water & Sewer Rates Rocket Up 122117

Cornwall Ontario – There’s a dark side to journalism.  Play ball, don’t report certain things, report others in favorable terms and you too could do the Heart of the City to City Hall shuffle as Kevin Lajoie did, and now Todd Lihou appears to be doing. All on the public’s dime.    Now this isn’t […]

Freeholder’s Rodrigues Realizing He’s a Lobster Over State of Journalism 100517

Cornwall Ontario – Poor Hugo Rodrigues.   I say that in jest.  The former President of the Canadian Association of Journalism spewed a rant over our pathetic Ministry of Culture, Melanie Joly’s, new whatchamacalit thingy where essentially the biggest gloat was Netflix spending $500M creating content in Canada.  Nothing against Netflix, but taking advantage of a […]

Looking Forward @ Canada Day in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 081417

Cornwall Ontario – So after my editorial about Guy Lauzon’s partisan control over Canada Day here in Cornwall a lot of chatter and great ideas have been floated through my inboxes.

Cornwall Ontario – No sireee, no Cronyism and corruption in the River City as Councilor Carilyne Hebert announced her new gig at the EOTB.
