Budget Time Highlights Failure of Council in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig DEC 6, 2016

CORNWALL ONTARIO – In business if you consistently make bad decision you end up shutting down.  Just ask Bryan Merkley. However when it comes to the public purse the cash never stops flowing. There are tipping points and Cornwall has been redlining for awhile now. Denis Carr is back in his seat as budget committee […]

Have Local Liberals Taken Over the Glens by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 6, 2016

Cornwall is one of the oddest communities I’ve ever lived in and I’ve lived in a few.     The political corruption fingers through everything from City Hall, to charities, and even our SD&G Highlanders apparently. First you have former MPP Jim Brownell named as Honourary Lt. Colonel.    That was a little weird as […]

Would You Buy a Car from SD&SG Liberal Candidate Bernadette Clement? By Jamie Gilcig

City Councilor Bernadette Clement looked more blue than red as she finally kicked off her campaign in Morrisburg yesterday.    The heat was unbearable and wilted the crowd of mostly seniors and staffers.

CORNWALL Ontario –  Monday night two subjects stood out.   Now these were distractions from the bigger mess of our budget which preliminary numbers are looking at a tax increase of over 5% which simply is not acceptable, especially considering the bloating of taxes through eight years of Kilger rule. The first issue I’ll write […]

Federal  Liberal Bash In Cornwall Ontario a No Show for Domenic LeBlanc by Jamie Gilcig JAN 22, 2015

Thoughts on Council Raises & Police Checks for Cornwall Ontario Council by Jamie Gilcig – DEC 18, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – I’m going to pay a rare compliment to our city council.   Maybe rare shouldn’t be the term.   Because of the weirdness that was the Kilger council of the last term there was very little to compliment our elected officials about.  Nearly half of our current council are from that last […]
