CCPS Playing Politics With Public Safety Over Opioid Scare 110717

Cornwall Ontario – There is a true partnership between media and police services.   When there’s an emergency it’s important to reach as many people as possible and that’s where media come in.

Can We Really Cut $5-7 Million from Cornwall Community Police Service Budget?  100517

Cornwall Ontario – With talks of a 6% tax increase coming, chiefly because of a lack of infrastructure reserves, and plummeting property values, one area of cash to dialog on is our police budget which roughly stands at about $18M per year for a city of about 40,000 people. Putting that into context, Toronto spends […]

Was There No Crime in Cornwall for 5 Days?  No Reports From CCPS 081728

Cornwall Ontario – With a budget of approximately $18M per year it’s boggling how the Cornwall Community Police Service under Chief Dan Parkinson and a police board chaired by Andre Rivette refuses to communicate with the public.

Something Fishy @ Cornwall Fire Service Under Pierre Voisine. By Jamie Gilcig 080917

Cornwall Ontario – A war seems to be waged from the Cornwall Fire Services against Cornwall City Councilor Mark A MacDonald? At root has been Councilor MacDonald’s position that the city has to come to grip with Fire and other services. Essentially we have to live within our ability to pay and that fire and […]

You Can’t Hide Taxes in Cornwall.  Fire & Police Refusing Info. By Jamie Gilcig 080317

Cornwall Ontario –  Oddly enough our fire and police services are refusing to answer basic questions and information to this newspaper.

Why Isn’t the CCPS Reporting Rash of Robberies in Cornwall?  072617

Cornwall Ontario – Social media is abuzz after the robbery of the beloved downtown Riley’s bakery.  But after sifting through a lot of pages and talking to a lot of people it appears that at least five other businesses were broken into.

Are Ontario Residents Safe from Police & Judicial System Abuse?  By Jamie Gilcig JUNE 20, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – We have a system that is utterly broken.  It’s a cash machine for law enforcement and judicial system that essentially depend on each other to earn their incomes and improve their budgets. There is a very low threshold of accountability for abuses or errors by police, and almost none against Crown Attorneys. […]

Cornwall Ontario – This newspaper, the largest in this city with over 1 million human pageviews per month, hasn’t had a release from the fire department since Pierre Voisine was promoted.    Unlike many in the fire services I actually live downtown and CFN operates downtown.  I hear the many sirens, but nada from the […]

It is Time to Clean Up the Cornwall Community Police Service? by Jamie Gilcig JAN 26, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  The Standard Freeholder ran a puff piece spinning a higher amount of complaints about the CCPS.

Cornwall Ontario Heckled & May Lose It’s Largest Newspaper by Jamie Gilcig DEC 5, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – Starting CFN in 2009 has been an amazing experience.   It’s been brutal in many ways exposing the darkest sides of any community I’ve ever seen not in a cheap tv series or movie. While by far my experience with people in this town has been pleasant, it’s been mostly that on […]

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 […]
