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. Questions like how many calls for service the police had from last Friday to Sunday.  Where other services voluntarily release that to media, our police service, led by Chief Dan Parkinson, refuses to answer […]

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

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. The one consistent seems to be that it appeared that all hadn’t been […]

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

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 Police & Fire Services Refusing To Be Transparent. By Jamie Gilcig JUNE 8, 2017

Cornwall Police & Fire Services Refusing To Be Transparent. By Jamie Gilcig JUNE 8, 2017

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

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. Oddly enough there were less reported crimes in Cornwall in 2016 even though they still are raising their budgets. The police service is a cash cow.  It comes down to money and power.    If you’re […]

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

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

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 CAO Maureen Adams calls Kilger T Shirt Incident DISTRACTION as City Release Settlement info MAY 16, 2016

Cornwall CAO Maureen Adams calls Kilger T Shirt Incident DISTRACTION as City Release Settlement info MAY 16, 2016

Oddly enough today the City of Cornwall issued a press release.  Kevin Lajoie, Public Information Officer, once again neglected to include CFN in the release and I only found out about it after a reporter contacted me for comment. What our new CAO calls a distraction was a clear violation of Human Rights and Freedom […]

Kilger or O’Shaughnessy? Who’s the Better Mayor of Cornwall? POLL August 16, 2015

Kilger or O’Shaughnessy?  Who’s the Better Mayor of Cornwall?  POLL  August 16, 2015

I was chatting with a veteran Cornwall politico this week and the subject turned to a common one; whether current Cornwall mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy was an improvement over the man he defeated, Bob Kilger? This was after Les lost a key vote on hiring of fire fighters at Monday night’s council meeting.   I pointed […]

The Deadbeat, Hurricane Hart, Funny Cops, Frosty the Clown, & the Crowns by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 21, 2015

(photo:facebook) CORNWALL Ontario –  It all started with a settlement hearing at Small Claims court in Cornwall Ontario. Sadly, Mike Bedard of Platinum Pools would not pay his seasonal bill, again.      So CFN was forced to take him to court to try and collect a bill.  This would not be the first time Mr. […]

Leak & Cover Up at CCPS headquarters in Cornwall Ontario? Chief Parkinson Refuses to Answer Questions MARCH 19, 2015

Leak & Cover Up at CCPS headquarters in Cornwall Ontario?  Chief Parkinson Refuses to Answer Questions MARCH 19, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – It’s not easy at the top.    Cornwall Community Police Chief granted an interview to the lowly Todd Lihou at the Seaway News. Todd gets lots of police news; perhaps because one of his confreres son works for the CCPS; perhaps because Todd himself tried to be an officer himself. It might […]

SD&G MP Guy Lauzon Outs CCPS Officers Involved in Donation to Mystery Man in Cornwall Ontario – FEB 4, 2015

CFN –   Harper MP Guy Lauzon singled out a group of Cornwall Police that he stated were responsible for donating to the mystery man who sold his wedding ring, after 54 years of marriage, to allegedly pay for food for he and his wife who the story states is suffering from Alzheimer Disease. He […]

CAJ Prez & Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues Burns Source on Twitter by Jamie Gilcig – NOV 21, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – The Canadian Association of Journalists and Sun Media’s Standard Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodgrigues burned a source live on Twitter this morning. Incensed over his interpretation of a CFN story Mr. Rodrigues went on the war path on social media calling out this writer and calling moi a liar after we tipped the […]

271 Days Later – My Police Charges Still Not Dropped – Political Smear 101 by Jamie Gilcig  NOV 7, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario –  I was asked what was the hardest part of this last year?  Was it the police charges?  Was it that after Bell provided a production order that categorically stated that I never made the calls (nearly six months ago!)  that the police and crown put forth in their disclosure that not one, […]

PLEASE SIGN our Petition to the Attorney General of Ontario to have the wrongful charges dropped against Jamie Gilcig and Investigate the event fully.

PLEASE SIGN our Petition to the Attorney General of Ontario to have the wrongful charges dropped against Jamie Gilcig and Investigate the event fully.

It’s very rare that I appeal to the community and there are some that will suggest that this appeal is strictly for myself; maybe for selfish reasons, but it’s certainly not meant to be treated. On February 7th my life changed.  I had gone to court to try and collect from a client.  There was […]

Is Everyone Treated Equally Under the Law in Cornwall Ontario? Confusing Over City Driver Burning By Flashing Bus

Is Everyone Treated Equally Under the Law in Cornwall Ontario?  Confusing Over City Driver Burning By Flashing Bus

(photo: Facebook) CORNWALL Ontario – Did he or didn’t he?  A confusing media report suggests that a City employee is not being charged for clearly burning by a school bus with its lights flashing. One person cited his nephew having a knock on his door and being given a $500 ticket for the same offense […]
