CORNWALL Ontario – You see some interesting stuff on Social Media and I discovered Cornwallite Jon Irvine and his Cornwall Song. It’s not everyday you see a local song featured, never mind on the Uke!
Sadly Jon is leaving Cornwall; heading off to Halifax apparently; but his Cornwall song will live on digitally for all to enjoy its humour as Jon; like myself, doesn’t hate our fair city.
Mr. Irvine, who cuts down trees as his day job cited a lack of things to do for young people and opportunity as some of the reasons to head on to larger pastures.

Again the issue of youth retention rears its ugly head. While you can’t compare a city the size of Cornwall to Halifax many young people miss the value of being able to have the quality of life that Cornwall offers while being able to zing over to Ottawa or Montreal to party and adventure.
In the meanwhile enjoy the video and please note that there are certain words used that could offend the sensitive and kiddies.
