Kingston, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Mississauga and Brockville round out our top ten and we’ll be visiting Brockville or Brock Vegas as it’s becoming known this month to profile this charming city just down the river from us in Cornwall and some of the things they’ve accomplished including their Arts and the impact it’s having on the city.

It’s fun sometimes to see what drives people to CFN from Google and other search engines.  Here’s a snapshot from this morning of the last 30 searches that brought viewers to us.

We were asked about the site started by our former tech person, failed politician, and mediocre mimic,  Chris Savard.    We have not included it in this list because a vast majority of its traffic comes from aggregation.    There’s nothing wrong per se with aggregation, but it’s pass through traffic in the sense that stories from other media appear and draw eyeballs only to have them click on the links and move to another site.

We have a sister website, that we experimented with aggregation and it works really well and Daily Dish is about to be re-activated.   Here on CFN though we like our news home cooked as apparently many of you do too!
