Maurice Dupelle & Bad Politics Leave Agape Food Bank on the Brink in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 071618

Cornwall Ontario –  One of the biggest problems in Cornwall is the utter failure of charities due to really bad politics.

Bank of Montreal Arts Centre in Cornwall Will be an Election Issue by Jamie Gilcig 062718

Not Running for Office Isn’t Always a Bad Thing – by Jamie Gilcig 050318

Cornwall Ontario –  Running for office isn’t the only way to help a community.  For many it’s a vain ego thing.  I just turned down a new provincial party looking for a local candidate.   Looking around the table here in Council there really are only 1 or 2 that truly get what being a councilor […]
