UCDSB Secondary Schools Literacy Under 50% in Cornwall FRASER Inst. Rankings for 2017/18 050619

It’s pretty sad and scary to see Cornwall’s Secondary School rankings slide further overall in the province according to the latest Fraser Institute Secondary School rankings. Sad, but not unpredictable as the Primary rankings have been scary too. Both St. Lawrence and CCVS scored less than 50% for testing which according to the Fraser is: […]

Canada. Section 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that everyone has “the freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication.” Sadly in the City of Cornwall and SD&G this is a sad joke. It goes beyond freedom of the press and charter rights. I mean, […]

Overspending Complaint Against Cornwall Mayor Highlights Toxic Bully Culture in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 042419

Cornwall is not a unique community. It however does have a strain of bully culture that is very rare in that it’s embraced by its victims, many times more than its bullies, who really, because of cronyism, aren’t that capable. An example is that when I tried to save our Public Art Gallery and ended […]

Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Must Vacate Seat After Campaign Overspending by 29% by Jamie Gilcig POLL

Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Must Vacate Seat After Campaign Overspending by 29% by Jamie Gilcig   POLL

It’s boggling the level that some people and media outlets will sink too. Bernadette Clement has run in five elections, including two for MP. Campaign spending limits are one of the most common features of any run. In fact Ms Clement has a team around her. Not only is she herself a lawyer, but Etienne […]

Justin Trudeau Legal #lavscam Bluff Called by Andrew Scheer by Jamie Gilcig 040719

Yes, I’d love to play poker with our Prime Minister any day. Although much younger, I probably would be fine boxing a round or two with him as well because my grandfather, who was a prize fighter in the 1929’s, when you only got paid if you won, taught me about things like this. Apparently […]

Is Jason Christoff & Cornwall Ontario Anti Vax & Hate Central in Ontario? Part 1 040419

By Mary Anne Pankhurst There’s no doubt that vaccine misinformation harms and kills people. Globally, the evidence for that is in. But do you know misinformation is also a money maker? Fact is, Big Misinfo is a profit-making leviathan. It breaches in both physical and online communities, all tangled up with noxious and weedy conspiracy […]

SD&SG MPP Jim McDonell Tire Fires Autism Incident in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 031919

I’ve only lived in this area since 2004, but something I’ve noticed is that people are not big on being accountable and owning their messes. I know that’s universal, but it’s especially ugly here, especially top down. When MPP Jim McDonell made a total boob of himself using the term “nazi” regarding the former Liberal […]

Clement Council Waste Plan We be an Expensive Disaster by Jamie Gilcig 030819

Ugh snowflakes. Listening to Carolyne Hebert frankly gives me gas. Sadly, we get the government we collectively deserve and a rigged pro labour election has seen her and other snowflakes rubber stamp management budgets and plan. Starting April it appears that we will have a six bag limit in Cornwall per house for Garbage. And […]
