Conrad Black On the Epic Fail of The Conservatives & Erin O’Toole OPINION #cdnpoli

APRIL 11, 2021 – The incompetent Liberals may win the next election. The only explanation for this is the traditional unfeasibility of the Conservative party. It is almost unimaginable, given the horrifying shambles that the present federal government has made of almost everything, that it is potentially on the brink of a premature election, confident […]

Self Inflicted 3rd Wave Covid-19 Lockdown in Ontario to Happen Because of Ford Gov’t Failure.  By Jamie Gilcig

March 31, 2021 – One would think after a year of a world wide pandemic that best practices would be the rule of the day for the largest province in Canada. Sadly we have failed, and that failure starts at the top. Too many rules without enforcement send the wrong messages to the public. Too […]

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley- O’Toole Convention to Lead to Trudeau Victory

MARCH 21, 2021 – I almost feel sorry for Erin O’Toole today. I say almost because it was his political organization and his staff’s work on the policy convention that has pretty much handed him a loss in the next election. Losing the fight for pro-O’Toole delegates at the riding level selection meetings, cost O’Toole […]

Freshco Claims EOHU Allows Cashiers to Wear Faceshields Only as Variants Land in Cornwall.  By Jamie Gilcig

FEBRUARY 25, 2021 – CFN collates Covid-19 info on our main facebook page. As many know, yours truly has been focused on Covid since December 2019 and trying, many times facing abuse, to get authorities and stores in Cornwall to take the Pandemic seriously. Many times it feels like Noah’s Ark meets Groundhog Day. While […]

Seniors Situation Room.  By Dawn Ford – Elvis & Things to do During Covid-19

FEBRUARY 23, 2021 – It seems that people are finding all kinds of other things to do during our restriction times because of the COVID 19 virus. One lady told me she actually washed and set her own hair because of the beauty salons closures. Now she ponders, do I dare cut it a bit?? […]

Yes, it’s time to save and support local Media, especially this outlet.  By Jamie Gilcig

FEBRUARY 13, 2021 – Being an Independent media outlet is a challenge. It was before Covid-19, but during the pandemic many media outlets have been decimated with thousands of journalists and broadcasters losing their jobs. CFN is on life support. It has been in the red now for several years thanks to a conspiratorial boycott […]

Seniors Situation Room. By Dawn Ford – Groundhog Day & Time to Honour Bob and Dorris Turner in Cornwall

FEBRUARY 11, 2021 – February is a busy month. We just had Ground Hog Day on Feb. 2nd. It was a snowy blowy day but the ground hogs gave their verdict. However, one was “six more weeks of winter” and others, “an early spring”. So…I guess we will have to wait and see just like […]

Time for Pre-election Trudeau  Fact Checking – View From the Hill. By Keith Beardsley

JANUARY 30, 2012 – Today Trudeau is saying “For almost a year, Canada’s borders have been closed to foreign travelers.” That is pretty rich, he either believes his own manufactured Liberal spin or he is a blatant liar. Take your pick, neither shows well on a Prime Minister in a G-7 country. On the day […]

Seniors Situation Room. By Dawn Ford – Covid-19 Stay @ Home Restrictions = New Hobby Opportunities

JANUARY 24, 2021 – With the new ‘Stay At Home’ restrictions, it is a good time for hobbies or to learn new ones when we have to stay indoors so much. When we were kids one of our favourite hobbies was stamp collecting. Some seniors still have the ones they collected as kids and teens […]

View From the Hill. By Keith Beardsley – Time for Ford Government to Crack Down on For Profit LTC Homes in Ontario #onpoli #covid19

JANUARY 24, 2021 – Anyone following the tragic deaths in our long-term care homes knows that this sector of our province has been largely ignored over time by both the present Ontario government and previous ones. Out of sight out of mind would be a good description- until of course an election comes along and […]

JANUARY 21, 2021 – Derek Sloan was finally kicked out of the Conservative caucus today. Whether he was guilty or not of knowingly accepting a donation from Fromm one can argue from now to eternity. But, no one should be surprised he was kicked out; it was long overdue. His previous transgressions were widely known. […]

JANUARY 2, 2021 – Stupidity seems to have infected the political class including- MLA’s, ministers, and political staff. What do they NOT get about restricting travel during the COVID pandemic, especially in provinces with a lock down in place? It is pretty simple- when the health advice on federal and provincial websites is asking you […]

Time for Doug Ford to Step Up & Deal with Randy Hillier & Rod Phillips.  By Jamie Gilcig

DECEMBER 30, 2020 – Premier Doug Ford likes to portray himself as a “friend”. While he’s done some good work during Covid, he has failed the province dramatically by simply not putting the right people in charge to deal with the pandemic. Chiefly, his Minister of Health, Christine Elliot. Covid-19 emergency laws and guidelines are […]
