Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Art, Charity, & Thanks for Paramedics 100919

Hand washing is paramount now that the flu season will be upon us. I read in a few articles that the problem is that we don’t wash our hands long enough. It was suggested that when washing with soap and good warm water to sing the “Happy Birthday” song – two verses and also to […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford May Flowers! Spring is Here & Tiger Tales! 052219

Poets call this the ‘Merry Month of May’. Hasn’t been too ‘merry’ yet with rain and cold damp winds sometimes. But, at least it is Spring. A friend is all thrilled because her crocuses and irises are popping up through the ground and there are flowering trees with pink and white blossoms. The grass is […]

Seniors Situation Room  by Dawn Ford – Easter, Passover, & CCVS. 042319

This has been a busy week with Christians getting ready to celebrate Easter and our Jewish Friends celebrating Passover. Stores had been stocked for many weeks with Easter eggs and bunnies – all ready for our Easter Bunny to deliver. Exciting morning for kids. I remember years ago when I was teaching Sunday School to […]

Dear Premier Ford – Carbon Taxes & Gas Gouging in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 041119   PETITION

I don’t envy your job Doug. I would never want to be Premier of Ontario. I admire your fight against the pointless and abusive cash grab that is the carbon tax. While that is going to be a long fight there is something your government can actually nail down and help we struggling Ontarian’s with […]

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 […]

Black and white TV and rabbit ears!! Those were the days of great comedy , westerns and other shows , all suitable for family viewing. None of the shows had any vulgarity so all the family could spread the rabbit ears as far as they would go and watch our favourites on TV. I loved […]

The Alexandria Cornwall Catholic Diocese issued a release today related to charges against Deacon Peter McBride, 78. According to Florida media he was observed receiving a sex act while in a massage room. Oddly enough the release above is different than the one in Florida which reported that the US diocese notified our local as […]
