Dana Bingley & Beyond 21 Play Politics in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig JULY 15, 2016

I live in a very very strange town.    Because of a City Hall led boycott many agencies refuse to send press releases or invites to CFN even though their works require the most amount of exposure to be successful. I watched from our public art gallery, which is in the process of wrapping up […]

Kevin O’Leary is taking a page or two from Donald Trump in the US and trying to position himself for a leadership run to replace Stephen Harper for the Conservative Party.

Graham Greer Isn’t My Kind Of Man – Musical Mayhem in the River City by Jamie Gilcig

I love that image that an area photog did of moi.  He meant it badly, mostly because he’s kinda young and probably never understood or watched Citizen Kane.     He’s an example of a young person in Cornwall, with some talent, who sold his soul to get the love from a ever shrinking clique. […]
