Crazed Cat Lady Tries to Bully CFN into Coverage by Jamie Gilcig 082018

Cornwall Ontario – It’s odd, some of the requests we get for assistance.   As this newspaper is about to celebrate our tenth anniversary of somehow surviving in this culturally toxic town it never stops to astound me how entitled some people think they are? Our first two years we essentially said yes to everyone no […]

The Whistle-blower Forum by Diane Shay – Election Promises Broken re: Transparency, Integrity & Accountability in Cornwall

The Whistle-blower Forum by Diane Shay –  Election Promises Broken re:  Transparency, Integrity & Accountability in Cornwall

“The world will not be destroyed by evil but by those who watch without doing anything” Albert Einstein. Well it’s that time again to renew councils contracts through our election process. When one is hired to do a specific job and fails miserably should they get their contracts extended another four years? This question will […]

#CCPS Police Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 081118

Cornwall Ontario – For many of us journalists we know no hours.   We can be working days straight at a time.  We can work at odd hours.  Many of us have no set schedules. CFN does not have public offices.  When I need to meet someone we do it in public spaces.  There are security […]

Seniors Leaving Cornwall Too –  Cost of Living Corruption Lack of Culture Cited 080718

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was chatting with a friend who’s nearly 80 and she’s planning to sell her home and leave Cornwall.   She shared a few more of her friends were leaving too. Another friend in her 40’s shared that she’s moving to Ottawa and then shares that she has about a half dozen […]

What Does Hugo Rodrigues Have Against Cornwall Councilor Mark MacDonald by Jamie Gilcig 080418

What Does Hugo Rodrigues Have Against Cornwall Councilor Mark MacDonald by Jamie Gilcig 080418

Media can be a bewildering thing.    We are flooded with content through the day.  Local, regional, National, happy stories, tragedies, tales of injustice, and crime. Yet at the end of the day we filter all that down to a few stories on a good day. With 4 utterly pointless candidates for mayor and 32 […]

Open Letter to Ontario Premier Doug Ford Regarding MinComs and Media in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 080318

Dear Doug, I sit here in my office of my struggling Independent media outlet.   An outlet that was fair and friendly with you during the election. Even though we’re the largest in our market with large audiences in other key Ontario markets we received zero advertising from your campaign or the PC party during the […]

Why I Didn’t Run for Mayor or Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072818

Why I Didn’t Run for Mayor or Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072818

Cornwall Ontario –   From offers of hand made suits  by Montreal tailors and volunteers it was very tempting to run for office in Cornwall this election. When I ran in 2014 I had one clear objective which I was very proud of the results contrary to what Hugo Rodrigues likes to spew.    I wanted […]

It’s Time for Fire Insurance By Laws in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072718

It’s Time for Fire Insurance By Laws in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072718

Cornwall Ontario – Another major fire in Cornwall Ontario.  Another round of appeals for help from “victims” who’ve lost everything. It’s tragic, but for many it’s a self inflicted wound that also impacts the community. In Ontario renters insurance can be had for as little as $15 per month.  That’s a package of cigarettes or […]

Cornwall Ontario – You have to love kids. A friend of mine, Myrna,  who was in the Girl Guides organization as a Brownie, Girl Guide, Sea Ranger and Guider, told me about her two grandsons, Graydon, who will be 6 next week and Lachlan who will be 4 soon. Whenever the family gather at the cottage, […]

Maurice Dupelle & Bad Politics Leave Agape Food Bank on the Brink in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 071618

Cornwall Ontario –  One of the biggest problems in Cornwall is the utter failure of charities due to really bad politics. The United Way for example boycotts this newspaper.  They also kept missing their funding targets so they no longer have them.  Instead of acting like a responsible charity and pursue their mandate they fail […]

Hugo Doesn’t Seem to Understand Why the Poor Election Candidate Turnout for Cornwall?  By Jamie Gilcig 071418

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was having a beverage with a gentleman I was expecting to run for mayor of Cornwall Ontario.   He was bright, successful, connected to the community and had the gift of gab.   He was clearly far superior to the only person to put their name forth so far, one David Murphy, […]

Over 200 Million Reasons To Worry About the Cornwall Waterfront by Jamie Gilcig 071318

Over 200 Million Reasons To Worry About the Cornwall Waterfront by Jamie Gilcig 071318

Cornwall Ontario – The problem with a lack of community leadership is that issues can bite you in the bum before you realize what hit you.  Corruption and political impotence do not lead to a successful community. While the ol rumours and allegations about a certain former mayor’s love for a good game of cards […]

Justin Trudeau – The Hypocrite-In-Chief by Warren Kinsella 070918

“I strongly deny the groping allegation that I already admitted to and apologized for.”   WARRENKINSELLA.COM – That is Justin Trudeau’s defence in the ongoing groping scandal, basically. And it is so truly pathetic, so fucking ludicrous, satirical news show The Beaverton ridiculed it with that very headline. The shifting, shifty prevarications of the Prime Minister of […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Column #125 & Comics in the 50s! 070918

  Cornwall Ontario – One of the joys of being a kid in the 1950’s was the comic books. Remember Batman and Robin and the Bat mobile, Superman and Lois Lane, Wonder Woman, Flash Gordon, Dick Tracey and his famous watch, Bugs Bunny and “What’s up, Doc?”, Archie Andrews and Betty and Veronica, Uncle Scrooge, […]

Will Cornwall Become Brampton 2.0 in 2018 Municipal Election? by Jamie Gilcig 070818

Cornwall Ontario – In the 2014 Ontario municipal election CFN viewers were credited with being the change in Cornwall. Out went one long time corrupt Mayor and politician along with half of his council,  and in came a mayor who allegedly stood against the corruption including having resigned during the term as councilor.   We now […]

Justin Trudeau’s Political Suicide is Not Pretty to Watch – by Jamie Gilcig 070718

Cornwall Ontario – Justin Trudeau has been an interesting politician.  Tailor made for the strange age we live in.  He’s visual more than substantial.   There have been no great ideas or National directions emanated from him during his entire political career unlike his father, whom whether you agreed or notas PM,  clearly was a leader […]

BMO Donates to Winchester Hospital After Cashing in on Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 070618

Cornwall Ontario –  Some irate taxpayers in Cornwall were offended when they read that the Bank of Montreal just sent a big bag of cash over to the Winchester Hospital instead of CCH, especially as Cornwall just bought it’s old empty BMO building on Pitt Street,  in need of millions of dollars of renovations,  for […]
