Toxic Culture @ Root of School Closings Failures in Cornwall Area by Jamie Gilcig NOV 20, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – I left Team Cornwall after a sampling of its former President Gilles Latour, who’s now waiting his court dates from charges of fraud, including of his mother. I also am no longer a member of the Cornwall & Area Chamber of Commerce.    When I first ran for a seat on its […]

Cornwall Ontario Councilor Elaine MacDonald Suggests People Move to Counties During Budget Delibs FEB 3, 2016

As odd as politics can be at City Hall, Elaine MacDonald has hit a new low water mark. As reported in other media she stated the following as the budget process kicks off.  “everything is going up, and people should accept the fact that taxes will be going up.   If people want to live lean, […]

The Art Centre Elaine & Carilyne Want to Build on Lies in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig NOV 5, 2015

Yes, I know, I’ve got emails from many of you complaining that I haven’t been writing as much here on CFN these past months. The truth is since January of this year I’ve been spending 40-60 hours per week trying to save our 33 year old institution that is our public art gallery here in […]

Maybe Cornwall City Council Should Go to the Dogs Or Is the City Paying Conflict of Interest Legal Bills by Jamie Gilcig – MONDAY June 15, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – Apologies for not writing as much as I normally do for the last while.    I was in mourning. My beloved dog Melly passed away a week ago Saturday. She was one of the greatest relationships in my life.    She was always there, and always will be.  Sadly she succumbed to […]

OP ED – Hugo By Elections Are the Rarity – Not the Norm by Jamie Gilcig  JUNE 10, 2015

Hugo, Hugo, Hugo….  The Freeholder editor took on the question of whether to replace an elected official or hold a bye election.  He cited the Brock Frost drama, but omitted to mention the Conflict of Interest lawsuit pending Mayor O’Shaughnessy, and Councilors Hebert and MacDonald. The irony is that some or all of those three […]

O’Shaughnessy Takes Frost Approach to Conflict of Interest Suit in Council – Frost Absent – JUNE 9, 2015  #cwlpoli

CORNWALL Ontario –  Shades of Bob Kilger last night at City Council.  Oddly enough both the Seaway News and that wacky Bill Kingston reported on Mayor O’Shaughnessy’s comments regarding a CFN story  yet never reported that the Mayor and Councilors Elaine MacDonald and Carilyne Hebert were served prior to a council meeting (May 25th) with […]

Hypocrites & Scoundrels in Cornwall – Lihou Frost & Almost All of Council by Jamie Gilcig MAY 30, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – I wrote, over a year ago, that Brock Frost was to Politics what Syphilis was to dating. Oddly enough within 24 hours of posting that on Facebook Mr. Frost dialed me up, asked for a meeting and purchased an ad package for his run for Council. It was truly odd as he’d […]

Conflict of Interest & Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MAY 28, 2015

Conflict of Interest & Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MAY 28, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – This can be a very very odd town to not only cover news, but deal with how stories are covered. Cornwall Housing threatens to evict seniors and tenants if they put in window air conditioners and we’re the only outlet to cover the story.  Not a peep out of The Freeholder, The […]

Code of Conduct for Cornwall Ontario City Council an Exercise in Hypocrisy by Jamie Gilcig MAY 12, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario –  Last night was odd and funny.  Cornwall City Council debated a new committee to hash out a Code of Conduct. There is the municipal act, the Council and CAO covenant (a joke document that the Mayor said isn’t even implemented) , and just plain common sense, but this council wants a new […]
