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.

Are We Being Misled Regarding Clement Marina Project?  By Jonas Malley  JULY 7,2017

Cornwall Ontario – Are we being misled by city officials and a land developer?  Well… at the very least, a “proposed” condominium development on public waterfront and parkland in Cornwall does seem ominously secretive.   Is this condo and capital venture, skirting the proper divestiture of Federal Lands, and is the City of Cornwall sneakily […]
