If Premier Couillard Really Wants Anglos to Return to Quebec. By Jamie Gilcig 081417

Cornwall Ontario –   I’m a refugee of Quebec.  One of the multitude of Anglos that left (along with a lot of  Francophones) for a multitude of reasons. I write this the day after helping empty my Mom’s Cote des Neiges apartment and finding an album of pics from the two short films I shot […]

#boobygate Coverup in Cornwall is Rank – Chem Tanks 2.0  By Jamie Gilcig JULY 14, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – I’ve always marvelled what anyone can have against the female breast and nipples?   Watch television and people have no issues with shows like The Walking Dead which has some of the most senseless and frightening gore I’ve ever seen in my near 53 years on this planet; but show a nipple […]

Time to Not Allow Trucks to Use Passing Lanes in Ontario?  By Jamie Gilcig JUNE 15, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Transport trailers can be one of the most frightening part of driving for motorists, especially on major highways like the 401 or 417 here in Eastern Ontario. The OPP just issued a release stating that they are involved in over 25% of road fatalities. Among the 1,342 fatal motor vehicle collisions on […]

His brow furrowed deeply as he concentrated at the spot on the old stone wall.  One day he’d have bushy brows, but today they were sweaty with concentration.    A feeble beam spiraled from his index fingers and bounced against the wall.   A bit of smoke wafted as his feet pushed into the old […]

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 […]

School Closures Being Politically Massaged in Eastern Ontario by Jamie Gilcig MAY 4, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – One of the biggest problems in managing the school system in Ontario are the multitude of school boards and weakness of politicians to make the right decisions. Four year terms pass fast, and making a decision like closing a school or library can cost at election time as many have threatened on […]

Seaway News For Sale Too – Is City Hall Politics Destroying Media in Cornwall? by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 20, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  I live in a very strange community.  Ignorance and corruption are literally destroying our local economy.   Now two of the main three media are for sale, and the Standard Freeholder is rumored to be wobbly.  Corus Radio chopped its newsroom staff a few years ago as well. It’s getting harder to […]

Have Cornwall Community Police Solved All Crime – Is it Time to Amalgamate by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 28, 2017

CORNWALL ONTARIO – As I write this the CCPS have not reported any crime since February 23.  That’s five days.   It’s a bit bewildering considering their budget? The United Counties of SD&G with about 50% more population, and far larger area to cover including CCPS Chief Dan Parkinson’s home outside of the City, had […]

She had this amazing face; proud, beautifully handsome, with angles that showed shadows of pain and hurts that could never be healed. It stopped him cold, and took his breath away.    It wasn’t just beauty.  It wasn’t about beauty.   It was magnetically magical. He typed the words to her and she typed them […]
