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 […]

Clinton Trump Debate Shows Deplorable State of US Politics by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 27, 2016

Clinton Trump Debate Shows Deplorable State of US Politics by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 27, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – I watched the debate between US Presidential candidates Hilary Rodham Clinton and Donald Trump. It was not the reality show gore fest that many were expecting.   It wasn’t very entertaining or informative.    I don’t think it ultimately will change the voter turn out or results.   It did highlight a […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Perception is Everything in Politics SEPT 23, 2016

I remember reading some comments from Liberal Senator Keith Davies, otherwise known as the “Rain Maker” for his successful stewardship of several Liberal election campaigns. He stressed that in politics, perception was everything- something this latest generation of Liberals seems to have forgotten. Arrogance and entitlement have always been the downfall of the Liberals, whether […]

SD&SG MP Guy Lauzon Abuses Tax Payers With Partisan Mailer by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 16, 2016

Conservative MP Guy Lauzon issued a new mailer.   The purpose of a mailer generally is to communicate with voters in the riding.  It is done at tax payer’s expense and not of the Conservative Party. The latest mailer, which is a whopping 11×17 inches includes  a whopping four pages in English and French, nearly as […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – What Goes Around Comes Around AUG 18, 2016

It didn’t take long for one of Trudeau’s ministers to put their foot in it. As has been reported Minister of Health Philpott has been somewhat free with throwing taxpayers dollars around on limousine service in the GTA. Some of the excuses that have been reported are just laughable… it wasn’t a limo it was […]

Trudeau Gov’t Not Being Open & Accountable Over Phoenix Payroll Issue by Keith Beardsley JULY 21, 2016

Trudeau Gov’t Not Being Open & Accountable Over Phoenix Payroll Issue by Keith Beardsley JULY 21, 2016

If you know someone in the Public Service or someone who has recently retired from the government- chances are you know someone who hasn’t been paid or who isn’t receiving the pay and benefits that they are supposed to be getting. We all have friends in that situation. Stop and think for a minute about […]

From Behind the Green Closet Door – Marijuana Dispensaries in Ottawa by Roy Berger July 17, 2016

In choral unison the macabre delirious Kings and Queens of dope , otherwise known as the Federal Marijuana Task Force, obsessed with narcotic fumes screamed in rage, “Get those green n*****s off Parliament Hill!” They put on their Hazmat suits and arc welding masks recently to observe top secret video taped evidence of ten thousand […]

Bill Amell of Lunenberg Thinks South Stormont Council is All Wet LTE  JUNE 28, 2016

What kind of a group of officials do we have in South Stormont council and working in office making decisions? We need to sweep the lot of them out next election! They work on double standards and cost homeowners like me too much money because of their decisions. Why are they suddenly denying clean water […]

CFN Interviews Long Time Ottawa & Cornwall Ontario Commentator JULES PART 1  MAY 15, 2016

CFN has always innovated and led the way in viewer comments in our community.   The Standard Freeholder has nuked their comments section, but CFN has evolved and has a very clear policy. Our most popular commentator has been “Jules”.  She’s had 2,963 comments approved as a viewer, and probably as many not approved because […]

Cornwall Ontario Mayor Gets Free Art for Office While Public Gallery Set to Close After Funding Cut to Zero MAY 11, 2016

Cornwall Ontario Mayor Gets Free Art for Office While Public Gallery Set to Close After Funding Cut to Zero MAY 11, 2016

Cornwall Ontario as a community has historically poorly supported the arts.  With an influx of seniors from communities that do support the arts it makes sense for some of those sports dollars to shift. Sadly, that isn’t the case.  The city’s 36 year old public art gallery, TAG Cornwall, is to close this year after […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Keith Agrees With Justin Trudeau APRIL 5, 2016

I don’t often agree with Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, but I do think he is going in the right direction with his open membership proposal. In this country our politicians often lament that the population is largely disengaged from our political process and we try to find all sorts of ways to attract young voters- […]

Fire Puts Future of Snowdon Theatre in Jeopardy by Kristian Gravenor MARCH 28, 2016

A Montrealer once penned a famous short story about a neighbourhood that went undetected by municipal bureaucrats. When the top Montreal bureaucrat found out that the whole area had been left undetected due to a lost filing cabinet card, he went to visit it and found a paradise on earth where people got along well […]
