That’s not the question for […]

Is the Freeholder Getting a Bump up In Ads from City Hall?  Hugo Rodrigues Limp Closed Door Meeting OP ED

CORNWALL Ontario –  It’s been interesting since Hugo Rodrigues was brought into Cornwall to lead the Freeholder.  It really has.  He’s no dummy, but his Machiavellian gobbleyspin might fool some; but not those that have followed politics.
