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

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 […]

Ford Gov’t Focusing more on Math than Sex Ed in Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 082918

Ford Gov’t Focusing more on Math than Sex Ed in Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 082918

Cornwall Ontario – The Ford government just issued a release outlining the failings of our educational system which seemed to focus more on Sex Ed than Math.   It seems that many would have our education system replace parenthood (although in far too many circumstances you can’t blame them) than simply teach our kids the importance […]

Is Democracy Dead in Cornwall Ontario? By Jamie Gilcig 082818

Is Democracy Dead in Cornwall Ontario?  By Jamie Gilcig 082818

Cornwall Ontario – Democracy dies when people don’t tend to it.  That means voting. It means being active more than just at elections. It means becoming aware to some degree of what the monkeys at City Hall get up to.   I mean we have a city clerk that can’t even get candidate contact information correct […]

Bernadette Clement Lies to the Public as She Runs for Mayor by Jamie Gilcig 082318

Bernadette Clement Lies to the Public as She Runs for Mayor by Jamie Gilcig 082318

Cornwall Ontario –  Lawyers can be a smart bunch, cagey too.   It’s rare to get them “on the record” unless they want to be on the record which is why it’s so much fun to get them to chat off the record when the opportunity arises. “Flipper is as good a politician as she is […]

Mama Bears Chips Stand Review in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 081618

Cornwall Ontario –  Wow!  I didn’t realize how long it’s been since yours truly has done a restaurant review. For this scribbler a review is all about expectations.  Whether it be haute cuisine or a simple chipstand we all have expectations walking in.   We expect a fish n chips shop to serve a fine plate […]

#CCPS Police Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 081118

Cornwall Ontario – For many of us journalists we know no hours.   We can be working days straight at a time.  We can work at odd hours.  Many of us have no set schedules. CFN does not have public offices.  When I need to meet someone we do it in public spaces.  There are security […]

What Does Hugo Rodrigues Have Against Cornwall Councilor Mark MacDonald by Jamie Gilcig 080418

What Does Hugo Rodrigues Have Against Cornwall Councilor Mark MacDonald by Jamie Gilcig 080418

Media can be a bewildering thing.    We are flooded with content through the day.  Local, regional, National, happy stories, tragedies, tales of injustice, and crime. Yet at the end of the day we filter all that down to a few stories on a good day. With 4 utterly pointless candidates for mayor and 32 […]

Open Letter to Ontario Premier Doug Ford Regarding MinComs and Media in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 080318

Open Letter to Ontario Premier Doug Ford Regarding MinComs and Media in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 080318

Dear Doug, I sit here in my office of my struggling Independent media outlet.   An outlet that was fair and friendly with you during the election. Even though we’re the largest in our market with large audiences in other key Ontario markets we received zero advertising from your campaign or the PC party during the […]

Why I Didn’t Run for Mayor or Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072818

Why I Didn’t Run for Mayor or Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072818

Cornwall Ontario –   From offers of hand made suits  by Montreal tailors and volunteers it was very tempting to run for office in Cornwall this election. When I ran in 2014 I had one clear objective which I was very proud of the results contrary to what Hugo Rodrigues likes to spew.    I wanted […]

It’s Time for Fire Insurance By Laws in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072718

It’s Time for Fire Insurance By Laws in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072718

Cornwall Ontario – Another major fire in Cornwall Ontario.  Another round of appeals for help from “victims” who’ve lost everything. It’s tragic, but for many it’s a self inflicted wound that also impacts the community. In Ontario renters insurance can be had for as little as $15 per month.  That’s a package of cigarettes or […]

So After a Busy Weekend of Listening Do You Want Me to Run? Election 2018 & Brampton 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 071618

So After a Busy Weekend of Listening Do You Want Me to Run? Election 2018 & Brampton 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 071618

Cornwall Ontario –   It’s really weird getting stopped in public places and asked to talk about politics and in particular my running for office again this 2018 election. The most common theme I heard over the weekend is that this town would putrefy with David Murphy as mayor.  I can’t say I disagree with that […]

Hugo Doesn’t Seem to Understand Why the Poor Election Candidate Turnout for Cornwall? By Jamie Gilcig 071418

Hugo Doesn’t Seem to Understand Why the Poor Election Candidate Turnout for Cornwall?  By Jamie Gilcig 071418

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was having a beverage with a gentleman I was expecting to run for mayor of Cornwall Ontario.   He was bright, successful, connected to the community and had the gift of gab.   He was clearly far superior to the only person to put their name forth so far, one David Murphy, […]

Will Cornwall Become Brampton 2.0 in 2018 Municipal Election? by Jamie Gilcig 070818

Will Cornwall Become Brampton 2.0 in 2018 Municipal Election? by Jamie Gilcig 070818

Cornwall Ontario – In the 2014 Ontario municipal election CFN viewers were credited with being the change in Cornwall. Out went one long time corrupt Mayor and politician along with half of his council,  and in came a mayor who allegedly stood against the corruption including having resigned during the term as councilor.   We now […]

Justin Trudeau’s Political Suicide is Not Pretty to Watch – by Jamie Gilcig 070718

Justin Trudeau’s Political Suicide is Not Pretty to Watch – by Jamie Gilcig 070718

Cornwall Ontario – Justin Trudeau has been an interesting politician.  Tailor made for the strange age we live in.  He’s visual more than substantial.   There have been no great ideas or National directions emanated from him during his entire political career unlike his father, whom whether you agreed or notas PM,  clearly was a leader […]

Abram Benedict Re Election as Grand Chief Could Spell Land Fight for Cornwall Waterfront by Jamie Gilcig 070118

Cornwall Ontario – Then next few years will be a defining period for both Akwesasne and Cornwall.  At stake is an extremely valuable strip of waterfront lands that the Federal government will be selling, most likely through a process via Canada Lands where the properties are evaluated and then sold at market values to gain […]
