Faces of Hate in Cornwall Ontario & SD&G by Jamie Gilcig

jg2CORNWALL Ontario –  Since my political smear involving my being charged by Cornwall Police Services, and my announcing my candidacy for Mayor I’ve seen a tremendous amount of frankly, hate. A small group of people started a boycott page against CFN on social media.  They plunked people into the group.  That’s how I discovered it myself as they added me as a joke.   But things got quite ugly and I left right away as I certainly wasn’t going to give them any legitimacy, and frankly you never argue with a mob, or crazy people, or a mob of crazy people. There was no rational.  It was just digging and looking for blood. daveVAN Cornwall City Councilor David Murphy was there.  Now it’s no secret that Mr. Murphy has boycotted CFN since day one whether via Benson’s , the City, or now with MPP Jim McDonell’s office.  However when contacted to verify, Mr. Murphy immediately removed himself from the group.  He however refused to issue a statement.  After all while he may not like CFN we are a local business and he is supposed to represent local interests as a city councilor. Dave is pictured with one Vanessa Regnier.  More about Ms Regnier later.  (and no, I will not bring up those rumors….) Who added Ms Regnier to the hate group; which her boyfriend Nicholas MacNaughton who works at CIBC has actually posted in; but Guy St. Jean of Neo Vintage Furniture who is …running for council.  I kid  you not.

Only the people in the group which was started by one Kevin Dockery whose claim to fame I believe was that I blocked him on Facebook because he was….well nasty.   I’m not big on wasting time on this planet.  It’s always easier to block than debate, not because I’m afraid to debate; simply because it’s a waste of time if not for a reason.  I really don’t need to practice on monkeys.

I sent a few messages to Mr. St. Jean including one today; but he chose not to respond.   Only he  can answer for his actions which I’m sure he’ll have to once the campaigns really heat up.

denis lapierre boycottAlso in the group are Councilor Denis Thibault and Mrs. Todd Lihou.  Todd is of course editor of The Seaway News.  Denis Lapierre of the Seaway News also is in the group.

And of course Deputy Mayor of South Stormont, Ms Tammy Hart was there to embarrass her community that CFN has a terrific relationship with.   I was at a special council meeting tonight as a group of medical professionals want to sell their building to their young and talented pharmacist and build a new larger health centre.

Ms Hart was the sole vote of dissent in what could have cancelled a near $1.5M project in her community.   Before the meeting started I asked her about her being in the boycott group.

Ms Hart has announced that she’s running again for Deputy Mayor.  Frankly from what I’m hearing she won’t be winning in 2014.

There are more I can list; but frankly I think they’d enjoy me naming them, so I won’t.

Hate is a funny thing.  It holds communities back.  It hurts innocent people caught in the middle like a dear friend and client I lost because frankly, she was afraid to tell the truth, and that’s what bullies do.

They make good people afraid to tell the truth; live their lives, advertise with whom they wish; have lunch with whom they wish.   The divide loyalties and break friendships.  It’s why there are over 20 empty store fronts in Cornwall.  It’s why a lot of things are the way they are in Cornwall.

I want to change that, but I’m one single person who isn’t that strong and mighty.

This year I’m losing a bunch of friends who have had enough and are moving away from Cornwall.   As we get a trickle of Quebecer’s feeling the circus that is Quebec; people in Cornwall are fleeing for many of the same reasons.

It’s time to change.  It’s time to draw the line in the sand.  Enough with bullying.  Enough with corruption, ignorance, pettiness, nepotism, and frankly backward uneducated short term thinking.

As we were sharing in a phone conversation today; I may not win this election.  I may finally get fed up with the bs here in this city and leave myself; but come October   2014 things will be different and my friends that means I’ve won.  Some have said I’ve already won as they have never seen as much election talk this far out of the vote.

Be the change.  I dare you.

And remember we don’t have to let the petty monsters be anything other than petty monsters.   Shine lights on them. It’s like sunlight to a vampire; trust me!

UPDATE 

Facebook removed the boycott group for promoting hatred.

Many of these people I’m sure are CFN regulars. Jamie, start posting some of their rants with their e-mail adresses and their true names attached. I’m positive that these bullies who are trying to drum up support against CFN are the same people who promote tolerance and “pink t-shirt day”. Their misguided actions will make it much easier for me to make my decision on who’s name I will be marking an “X” beside come election day.

In regards to your rants, You my friend are something special The group was started because of degrading of Cornwall and the people in it by YOU. be honest you Did Not like over 500 people standing up against you. Tell your readers how you personally have threatened members of the group. how you called us neo nazis and kkk members how you degraded a female member of this group and her young daughter. I have contacted facebook this morning and they are investing your allegations and your page and support page.Considering you are media source one would think you… Read more »

Who else are you going to add to your posse Kevin? Grow some and speak for yourself instead of approaching others to take up arms against CFN. It must feel liberating for you to finally use your true identity when posting here, instead of some fictitious pseudonym….but no…everybody put their pink t-shirts on, grab ‘yer pitchforks and torches, cause we’re gonna have ourselves a lynching. Kevin, I bet the first thing you did when you got up was check out CFN to get your morning fix.. then you got on Facebook to gossip about the big man..what a joke.

Thanks for notifying me. I was in Cuba for a week and had limited access to the internet and wouldn’t have been able to determine something like that.

Lmfao. Jamie your a liar. You have discriminated this city long enough. Their is nothing you won’t do to harm this city. Whether it be confronting store owners or citizens. You sir hate yourself. You hated the fact that a restaurant banned you from the establishment. You hated the fact people made a group about you. I have never seen anything like this before. So many members of this community dislike one individual. It’s unreal. Yes rob ford smoked crack. Look at what he did for Toronto. Someone like yourself hating members of the winter fest and discriminating against them.… Read more »

When somebody posts that “your” a liar, all you can do is laugh or shake your head.

Best article and comments ever. Except the one a about the tightrope walk from the Seaway Building to Knox Tower.

I agree with what you say Paul about both parties being equally to blame for this nonsense. Although I may have stuck up for Gilcig, I don’t see him as the victim here. I disagreed and argued with Jamie on more than a few issues. I am pro Kilger (and that’s all of them).. Murphy is getting my vote ’cause I like him and he’s trying..and I don’t believe that the Regnier girl is the face of evil..and I would’nt mess with her boyfriend. You see the moderately intelligent reader like myself can bypass the gossip and appreciate it for… Read more »

@420……”tightrope walk from the Seaway Building to Knox Tower.” What does this mean?

I recently created a Facebook group called “Support CornwallFree News, this group is open and accepting like minded individuals who support independent media and free speech. Sadly, this hate group “Boycott CornwallFree News”, aka the “Angry Mob”, have reported 16 posts on my page to Facebook. I have no updates on this situation, but I’m confident Facebook will disregard the complaints, as my group is peaceful & respectful.

Dave Murphy hates no one. He is a kind person. Someone added him to a group and he promptly removed himself….probably realizing the group is not positive and is stooping to a level he wants no part of. I was on it, then removed myself once I saw all the swearing going on. Just my speculation on what he may have done. {MODERATED}

Well I have been off for a brief time trying to recouperate. Jamie just this morning my husband and I went out to get a few things and while coming back we introduced ourselves to a nice Ukrainian lady who was here in Canada since 6 years. I worked with a lovely woman who was half Ukranian from Saskatchewan and half British who have left for the east coast since a number of years to retire. It is very sad what is going on over there and my husband told the woman about the hell in his own country. Canadians… Read more »

Jamie are you feeling alright. Do you really want to be mayor of Cornwall?I certainly would not wish all the hardships this position would create for you if you win this next election and become Cornwalls new Mayor.If you win do you really think the boys who run the show in Cornwall will ever let down?If you do, your only dreaming.Anyways i have talk to family and friends and we are ready to vote for you.Goodluck with your campaign

It would take a humoungous miracle from God to change Cornwall. If the people themselves are not willing to change then nothing will ever change. All the people that I went to school with have left except for a very few who remained behind because of inheriting their father’s business or finding work in a hospital or somewhere or other because of their connections. Everybody else left and will never return. When I first came to Ottawa back in 75 and worked in the federal government the people just roared with laughter about Cornwall. Cornwall is so known to be… Read more »

Jamie (Admin) Marc just told you something that is very true indeed. Did you go back and listen to what Mr. Finnerty said in that video that you have about the rich people in their limosines and the children of Cornwall that go to bed hungry. Listen to the video since the man made very good sense of it all. The clique runs the show and it has driven businesses out of Cornwall. Even what that man Leroux and someone else wrote about in Project Truth is the truth and much more that I know about and was not published.… Read more »
