Petula Clark’s song, “Downtown”reminds me sometimes of growing up post war in Cornwall. That line,”Everything’s waiting for you”, says it all.

Cornwall Ontario – We all get them every week.   Mine goes straight to the recycle bin, but that’s exactly why city’s like Montreal are deciding whether to ban them altogether.  LINK Locally TC Media ships them with the Seaway News weekly, but most end up in our landfill.    With more communities banning plastic bags […]

Cornwall Ontario –   Danny Aikman is a wee fellow.    He made his way through giants to eventually become police chief of the CCPS.  (was there any truth that he only would accept a Deputy Chief that was shorter than he was which was how Ms Spowart got the position?) Oddly enough his start sadly […]
