Are you Politicked Out Yet & Does Anyone Really Care? by Jamie Gilcig DEC 23, 2015

Are you Politicked Out Yet & Does Anyone Really Care? by Jamie Gilcig  DEC 23, 2015

It’s interesting to see what hits a button with people and what doesn’t?   In this age of internet newspapers like CFN we get to see direct results by page view counts, comments, and of course Social Media chatter. In 2015 we also live in an age of near Orwellian times.   Mass media, the […]

Dear Cornwall Ontario re: Ryan Gosling by Jamie Gilcig DEC 7, 2015

It was quite amusing to see some local media get excited by our homey Ryan Gosling mentioning Cornwall on Saturday Night Live, a NBC comedic institution led by Canuck Lorne Michaels who hails from Winterpeg.   As many know Ryan, who was born in London, grew up here and got his break via Montreal.   […]

Media Thoughts on Viewer Comments As CBC and Others Shut Them Down by Jamie Gilcig DEC 1, 2015

Media Thoughts on Viewer Comments As CBC and Others Shut Them Down by Jamie Gilcig DEC 1, 2015

In a quadruple media reference this morning a very interesting topic was discussed; online comments by viewers. The media trend now is to shut them down.   Locally the Postmedia owned Standard Freeholder has had them shut down for quite awhile, while two other outlets hyper moderate.   In our market we have the only […]

Syrian Refugee Debates Bring Out The Racisim & Ignorance in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig

Syrian Refugee Debates Bring Out The Racisim & Ignorance in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig

It’s sad when pundits…or hacks as in the case of Todd Lihou of the Seaway Media try to make hay on the suffering and misfortune of others. I  just read a very strange and bizarre editorial by Mr. Lihou on the Syrian refugee crisis and his suggestion that there’s plenty O room here in Cornwall. […]

What’s Biting Hugo’s Bum & The Return of Denis Carr to Council by Jamie Gilcig NOV 11, 2015

What’s Biting Hugo’s Bum & The Return of Denis Carr to Council by Jamie Gilcig NOV 11, 2015

You ever see someone and you know that either they aren’t sleeping, are about to lose their job, or simply aren’t getting enough TLC? Hugo Rodrigues, editor of the Standard Freeholder, has been on the warpath of late.   We here call it “Gilcig very very lite.” The biggest difference is that I tend to […]

Captain George’s Fish n Chips Review in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig NOV 2, 2015

Captain George’s Fish n Chips Review in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig NOV 2, 2015

I don’t normally review food from chain restaurants, but my dining companion wanted Fish n Chips and we decided to try “the new place” which turned out to be our new Captain Georges in Cornwall. It felt odd being in what had been a lovely and colorful Mexican restaurant.    The new decor is open […]

A Canadian Election Break Down With One Week to Go by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

A Canadian Election Break Down With One Week to Go by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

So with one week to go where do we stand with one of Canada’s longest elections? Stephen Harper clearly will not enjoy another majority which has many Canadians rejoicing.    Scandal after scandal has plagued his government, but most simply have grown tired of the politics of fear mongering and threats.    As my mentor […]

Cornwall City Councilor Brock Frost Messes Up Again by Jamie Gilcig – OCT 5, 2015

Cornwall City Councilor Brock Frost Messes Up Again by Jamie Gilcig – OCT 5, 2015

In a sadly consistent turn Cornwall Ontario City Councilor Robert Brock Frost released another inaccurate  statement to the public, this time involving the lawsuits against himself and local media outlets that published his original defamatory statements. . Court documents reveal quite clearly that the case is still alive, no costs have been awarded, and that the […]

Bob Noble of Ingleside Ontario Served Defamation Lawsuit Papers – OCT 3, 2015

After posting hundreds of statements and comments on social media Robert “Bob” Noble of Ingleside was served a defamation lawsuit today on behalf of CFN editor Jamie Gilcig. A sample of some them can be viewed on www.hatemirror.com . The process server stated that Mr. Noble flew into a rage, cursing, and suggesting that God […]

Todd & Mac Get Spanky Over Ashley Madison & Methadone in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig

Todd & Mac Get Spanky Over Ashley Madison & Methadone in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig

Wow!   Perusing the last few issues of TC Media’s Seaway News it was kinda funny watching Todd & Mac try and tag team. Mr. Lihou must be cranky of late.  He’s taken shots at moi and Freeholder editor Hugo Rodrigues recently.   Of course looking at the page count of the last few issues […]

I Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

I  Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

  While this disturbing, but hotly awesome piece of video is going viral it shows a few things about politics in Canada in 2015. One that the Harperites are extremely unhappy with the Mike Duffy saga; not so much for what Duffy did, but for how it’s played out. Does any reasonable Canadian really believe […]

Mulcair Wins Predictably Limp Maclean’s Leadership Debate by Jamie Gilcig AUG 7, 2015

Mulcair Wins Predictably Limp Maclean’s Leadership Debate by Jamie Gilcig AUG 7, 2015

The Maclean’s City TV Leadership Debate limped its way through the evening.   It wasn’t long, and it certainly wasn’t deep in scope. There was some grade school cheese with the sets having a blue background and the hosts wearing blue ties.   Nothing like some subliminal suggestion for the really dumb viewers. Elizabeth May […]

Stephen Harper Calls 78 Day Election – Local Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig AUG 2, 2015 #CDNPOLI

Stephen Harper Calls 78 Day Election – Local Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig AUG 2, 2015 #CDNPOLI

If money talks Stephen Harper will have another majority government.   Of course when you make the rules it’s expected that you get good results.    Right now Mr. Harper set the rules that they benefit himself and his party and it just might work. Justin Trudeau, if an election were held today would finish […]
