Yes Virgina, It’s Time to Stop the City Hall Led Boycott of CFN  JAN 21, 2016

10,000,000 is a very very large number.   Can you imagine the impact on Cornwall and area businesses if they had those impressions instead of through google ads? CFN had an early policy of not having digital ads as we wanted to focus on local, but due to a most likely illegal boycott led by […]

Cornwall City Councilor Brock Frost Messes Up Again by Jamie Gilcig – OCT 5, 2015

In a sadly consistent turn Cornwall Ontario City Councilor Robert Brock Frost released another inaccurate  statement to the public, this time involving the lawsuits against himself and local media outlets that published his original defamatory statements. .

Todd & Mac Get Spanky Over Ashley Madison & Methadone in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig

Wow!   Perusing the last few issues of TC Media’s Seaway News it was kinda funny watching Todd & Mac try and tag team. Mr. Lihou must be cranky of late.  He’s taken shots at moi and Freeholder editor Hugo Rodrigues recently.   Of course looking at the page count of the last few issues […]

Hypocrites & Scoundrels in Cornwall – Lihou Frost & Almost All of Council by Jamie Gilcig MAY 30, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – I wrote, over a year ago, that Brock Frost was to Politics what Syphilis was to dating. Oddly enough within 24 hours of posting that on Facebook Mr. Frost dialed me up, asked for a meeting and purchased an ad package for his run for Council. It was truly odd as he’d […]

How Much Bestiality is Going on in South Stormont Ontario by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 20, 2015  #OPP

CORNWALL, Ontario –  It’s always interesting to see how some media will cover a story.  We generally release the police blotter as delivered by the police. We do that for many reasons; most of them good, but some other media outlets try to step into the spotlight. This was recently released by the SD&G OPP. […]

Are City Council Using Ad Dollars as  Weapon of Control in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 2, 2015

CFN – Is your council using ad dollars as a tool to control media in Cornwall?   It’s a valid question.    For three years now City Council and its tentacles have boycotted this newspaper.  CFN has the largest audience in the city and are the only media outlet to consistently (if at all) publish […]

Sun News Network Gilles Latour Canadian Tire & North Strategic PR Firm – Media Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 13, 2015

CFN – Media is a hard biz these days.   Even the big guns suffer.   Today, on Friday the 13th Sun News Network shuttered down.  They flipped the switch to off.   I won’t get into the merits of Sun News and it’s fake boobed talking heads or far right Rush Limbaugh wannabees. I […]

CFN – Tammy Hart and her very odd council in South Stormont appear to be in retreat after humiliating the township, again.

Ms Hart and friends have an issue with one media outlet […]

2014 CFN Naughty & Nice List & O’Shaughnessy Council Back to the Future Beginning by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – Alas many of us had hope for change after Mayor Bob Kilger and three of his henchmen were bounced in the last election. There was a clear message from the people that change was wanted in our city, but sadly, as some predicted, that change has not occurred, at least not yet. […]

CORNWALL Ontario –  I hate fake.  I hate fake flowers. I hate fake stuff.  Mostly I really am not a fan of fake people and fake spin; especially when it’s petty.
