More Clique Cronyism as EOTB Denis Thibault Hires City Councilor HEBERT June 5, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – No sireee, no Cronyism and corruption in the River City as Councilor Carilyne Hebert announced her new gig at the EOTB. The Eastern Ontario Training Board is run by long time Liberal and former City Councilor Denis Thibault. Essentially funding is politically massaged to government friendly hangers on and companies that tow […]

Elaine MacDonald Puts Cornwall in Liability Position After Wage Freeze Shadow Negotiations MAY 19, 2017

Elaine MacDonald Puts Cornwall in Liability Position After Wage Freeze Shadow Negotiations MAY 19, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –   I live in a very strange community.   Here in Cornwall the people that clean city hall can’t run for council.  Yet Elaine MacDonald, President of the Labour Council, can. That’s letting the fox in the henhouse when it comes to the staff that make the city work. Likewise it tends […]

Taxation Without Representation in Cornwall as Water Taxes Going Up – by Jamie Gilcig DEC 20, 2016

Taxation Without Representation in Cornwall as Water Taxes Going Up – by Jamie Gilcig DEC 20, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – It’s only 1.48%, but how many in Cornwall are not seeing their incomes go up by that much?  And of course while the percentage may sound small, these taxes rarely if ever go down. Again, how many on council actually earn a living other than by the public purse? How many actually […]

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

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 Councilor Mark MacDonald Balks At Bus Trip of Public Works Buildings OCT 6, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – While some CFN viewers have asked if City Councilor Mark A.

Cornwall Ontario Orlando Tribute An Exercise in Hypocrisy by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 18, 2016

Cornwall Ontario Orlando Tribute An Exercise in Hypocrisy by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 18, 2016

I wasn’t invited to the Orlando tribute here in Cornwall on Friday.   Nor was CFN sent a release or invite which is odd as we’re the only newspaper in this community that has not only truly been Gay positive, but actually has sponsored (that’s given actual free advertising for Corus radio types viewing) to […]

Did Cornwall Councilor Claude McIntosh Leak Finn Termination to The Seaway News? JUNE 16, 2016

Did Cornwall Councilor Claude McIntosh Leak Finn Termination to The Seaway News?  JUNE 16, 2016

Oh look, another BREAKING story about City Hall in the Seaway News?   The TC Media paper has a sitting City Councillor on the payroll in one Claude McIntosh. The long time former Standard Freeholder lawsuit attractor doesn’t write these stories, but there does seem to be a large volume of “scoops” coming from City […]

Conrad Black: University Decision to Remove John A. Macdonald Statue is Cowardly & Disgraceful MARCH 12, 2016

Conrad Black: University Decision to Remove John A. Macdonald Statue is Cowardly & Disgraceful MARCH 12, 2016

Canada is suffering from a prolonged pandemic of moral self-flagellation promoted by hemophiliac bleeding hearts and militant native agitators. The latest outburst of it is the recent decision of the governors of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ont., to withdraw from an arrangement to erect statues of all 22 of Canada’s former prime ministers on […]

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 […]

City Code of Conduct Exercise a Total Toothless Tiger by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 26, 2015

City Code of Conduct Exercise a Total Toothless Tiger by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 26, 2015

So I just finished reading the document that Mayor O’Shaughnessy & CAO Norm Levac are trying to ram though a all too often gullible public.  Remember, this is the city that elected Brock Frost. The principle of a Code of Conduct is of course a wonderful thing other than the thought that if you have […]

Cornwall Councilor Brock Frost to Put My Waterfront Casino Idea on Council Docket by Jamie Gilcig JULY 7, 2015

Cornwall Councilor Brock Frost to Put My Waterfront Casino Idea on Council Docket by Jamie Gilcig JULY 7, 2015

Well he may be the most embattled councilor in the city.  He may be under legal messes from his Nicaraguan Real Estate dealings with Al Hatset and his River Kings fiasco, not to mention sending out a press release saying that yours truly made sexual advances at him at a sales meeting (which he neglected […]

Conflict of Interest Application In Cornwall to Change Date as Judge in Conflict On Same Committee JUNE 19, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – In an ironic and um….conflicted twist, Cornwall Ontario Solicitor David Sherriff Scott of the firm Borden Ladner Gervais (BLG) has requested a new judge for the first appearance of the Conflict of Interest Application against Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy, & councilors Elaine MacDonald, and Carilyne Hebert because of a conflict of the judge […]

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

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

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

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 […]
