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. Clearly many CFN viewers are dismayed at any Politician of any one party controlling our Federal celebration. What has percolated through is that if […]

You Can’t Hide Taxes in Cornwall.  Fire & Police Refusing Info. By Jamie Gilcig 080317

Cornwall Ontario –  Oddly enough our fire and police services are refusing to answer basic questions and information to this newspaper. Questions like how many calls for service the police had from last Friday to Sunday.  Where other services voluntarily release that to media, our police service, led by Chief Dan Parkinson, refuses to answer […]

Should Maureen Adams Be Fired for Not Informing Council About #Boobygate? JULY 10, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Holy Paul Fitzpatrick!   In what seems to be a chapter out of the ol Kilger council, rookie councilor Justin Towndale went public on his social media page with a statement claiming that council was left out of the loop of the Human Rights Tribunal Case of Nekkid Boobies. As many of […]

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

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 […]

It’s Time to Take Canada Day Back in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig JULY 3, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Another Canada Day in Cornwall.  More social media griping, rain, bad fireworks, crappy bands, Cornwall sucks, blah blah.   I get it. It’s time though, that if the public want a better Canada Day festivity to take charge.   There’s no reason for a sitting MP to be running Canada Day in […]

No Action for Cornwall Art Centre.  By Jamie Gilcig JUNE 12, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – TAG Cornwall, the now closed Public Art Gallery of Cornwall had dusty plans for an Art Centre from 1995.   The City of Cornwall of course never moved forward and slashed funding for the Charity to zero for 2015 and 2016 before it closed, instead spending the amount of money to keep […]

No We Really Don’t Need Fireworks Sales in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig MAY 24, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  I normally am for anything that helps the economy of this community, but a recent move to  support fireworks sales in Cornwall just makes no sense? One of the biggest runaway areas of our budget in Cornwall are our Fire Services.    We have one of the highest rates of fires in Ontario.   Lower […]

Paying it Forward & Why Good Deeds Are Important – by Jamie Gilcig MAY 23, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – I received an email from a college alumni today.  They wanted to use a CFN photo of a certain politician. This numpty financially boycotts this newspaper.  His track record is he got elected back home because of his family name after failing at the political game in a much bigger pond. He’s […]

Gay Cornwall News Blogger Attacks Gay N Dundas Mayor MARCH 21, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Holy Patrick Brown!   It must have been a slow day for Gay Conservative Cornwall News Blogger Bill Kingston, or as he’s been called, “The Queen of Mean”, as he cobbled together a fascinating take on which SD&G Counties council member spent the most cash.

City & Counties Squabble Goes Public – Highlights Need for Amalgamation by Jamie Gilcig MARCh 14, 2017

City & Counties Squabble Goes Public – Highlights Need for Amalgamation by Jamie Gilcig MARCh 14, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – The Counties of SD&G and the City of Cornwall are essentially waving their dirty laundry around as they duke it out in public over their shared services issues. Essentially both councils lack the ability to professionally work together.  The County for example, did not send their letter to this media outlet even […]

North Dundas Conservative Mayor Eric Duncan Comes Out of the Closet MARCH 8, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – In 2014 I asked if politicians should still be in the closet.   Today, in 2017, rising conservative star and North Dundas Mayor Eric Duncan surprised very few people by coming out.  He came out on of all places Linked in.  He didn’t issue a press release; at least we didn’t get […]

Josh Frappier Wants to Rename the Civic Complex in Honour of Bob Turner LTE March 2, 2017

Michael’s Right! Let’s Honour Bob Turner!   Michael Labelle’s wonderful February 15 letter inspired me to do a little bit more research into Bob Turner, his legacy, and the (typically pathetic) steps that Cornwall’s municipal government has taken to honour the man subsequent to the city’s having torn down the Bob Turner Memorial Centre on […]

LTE – Josh Frappier Doesn’t Appear to be a Fan of Cornwall Councilor Elaine MacDonald FEB 9, 2017

And here she is folks, Cornwall’s dime-store version of Tony Blair, Daniel Ortega, and Hosni Mubarak. In honour of Elaine MacDonald’s 7 years of treacherous collaboration with the corrupt Trudeau-McGuinty-Wynne Liberal Party establishment and her resulting betrayal of artists, home owners, seniors, taxpayers, workers, and small business owners in Cornwall as well as feminists, progressives, and […]

Cornwall Ontario City Council Signs Harbor Deal Without Public Consultation by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 26, 2016

The deed was done under cover.    No public consultation.  No real public information delivered.  A non nonsensical that jeopardizes the future of the city of Cornwall Ontario. The bad drama started with the Chem Tanks and ended with the release below by the city which actually rezoned the land “prior” to announcing the deal. […]
