Arbitration Award for Cornwall Firefighters  Obscene LTE William Hopkinson NOV 28, 2015

Obscene is one way to put it.  The way arbitrators treat taxpayers is what I’m referring to.  The latest labour contract arbitration award for Cornwall firefighters is nothing short of obscene and short-sighted.  In brief the firefighters received 1.5% for Jan. 1, 2013, 1% for July 1, 2013, 1.5% for Jan. 1, 2014, 1% for […]

It’s sad when pundits…or hacks as in the case of Todd Lihou of the Seaway Media try to make hay on the suffering and misfortune of others. I  just read a very strange and bizarre editorial by Mr. Lihou on the Syrian refugee crisis and his suggestion that there’s plenty O room here in Cornwall. […]
