lihouCORNWALL Ontario – It’s time for our 2014 First Quarter Lihou Report; named after Seaway News Editor Todd Lihou who raved about their numbers without really giving any numbers.    His narrative inspired this new name change in our reporting as CFN has always tried to be upfront about the support we get from you; our amazing viewers!

This installment of the Lihou Report is our First Quarter Report for 2014 which of course includes traffic from January 1, 2014 to March 31, 2014.

  3. Jamie during your short while in Cornwall you have accomplished a great deal more than what the toilet papers of record – SF and toilet paper Jr. Seaway News has ever done in all their years of operation. The whole bunch of them are mighty jealous of your accomplishments. Congratulations and I knew that you can do it and always have.
