Clement Does the Lumley 2 Step On Cornwall Saving Cash from CUPE STRIKE 091218

Cornwall Ontario –  It’s very hard to be a good liar.   Keeping up a false veneer takes a lot of stamina and skill.  People like Cornwall City Councilor Bernadette Clement ultimately fail and badly.   While Councilor Clement likes to come across as sweetness and light with bountiful positivity more and more people see through that.

Wanna Buy a Newspaper?  Turn Key Cornwall Regional Eyeballs – CFN FOR SALE

February will be the tenth anniversary of this newspaper.   That’s a long time and a lot of hard work. It’s resulted in over 1 million human pageviews monthly.      LINK Sadly, CFN never became the creative fount of positivity I envisioned when I started this venture in February of 2009.   You can’t do creative marketing […]

#CCPS Police Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 081118

Cornwall Ontario – For many of us journalists we know no hours.   We can be working days straight at a time.  We can work at odd hours.  Many of us have no set schedules. CFN does not have public offices.  When I need to meet someone we do it in public spaces.  There are security […]

What Does Hugo Rodrigues Have Against Cornwall Councilor Mark MacDonald by Jamie Gilcig 080418

Media can be a bewildering thing.    We are flooded with content through the day.  Local, regional, National, happy stories, tragedies, tales of injustice, and crime. Yet at the end of the day we filter all that down to a few stories on a good day. With 4 utterly pointless candidates for mayor and 32 […]

Why I Didn’t Run for Mayor or Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072818

Cornwall Ontario –   From offers of hand made suits  by Montreal tailors and volunteers it was very tempting to run for office in Cornwall this election. When I ran in 2014 I had one clear objective which I was very proud of the results contrary to what Hugo Rodrigues likes to spew.    I wanted […]

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. The United Way for example boycotts this newspaper.  They also kept missing their funding targets so they no longer have them.  Instead of acting like a responsible charity and pursue their mandate they fail […]

Hugo Doesn’t Seem to Understand Why the Poor Election Candidate Turnout for Cornwall?  By Jamie Gilcig 071418

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was having a beverage with a gentleman I was expecting to run for mayor of Cornwall Ontario.   He was bright, successful, connected to the community and had the gift of gab.   He was clearly far superior to the only person to put their name forth so far, one David Murphy, […]

We Get the Government We Deserve – Taxes to Go Up Nearly 5% in 2018 Election Year by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario – When I ran for Mayor of Cornwall in 2014 I was really clear about our number one issue, taxes. I had a clear plan that would cut taxes by 5%.   Now knowing the lay of the land; my false police charges, still not held accountable for by a corrupt police chief, crown […]

Happy International Women’s Day 2018 & Why I’m Not a Feminist by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario –   It’s funny how words can become corrupt.  Phrases start out well meaning, but then we humans start to interact and corrupt things.  According to some, Communism is the greatest form of government, but as anyone that ever read or watched Animal Farm can attest, it can be as corrupt as Capitalism. There […]

Millennial Survival in Toronto by E.V. Hutcheon – My Truth About Love 100317

Toronto Ontario – I used to believe that love conquered all- mind you I was seven and addicted to Disney movies and the concept that mice talked and all you need was a fairy-godmother to turn pumpkins into carriages. I used to think that someday when I grew up, my white knight would appear and sweep […]

What a pleasure to come on my Facebook page and not have to see all the “cop-sucking” by the tin pot dictator running the right wing rag in CONwall.

Letter to the Editor – Peter Allen on Kawartha Credit Union Election Process FEB 13, 2016

Transparency and Fairness in Credit Union Elections … Maybe Not! Written by: Peter Allen Credit unions are the unsung heroes of the banking world.
