Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Seniors Dealing with Covid-19 & Celebrating Girl Guides

JUNE 11, 2021 – The Pandemic has brought a lot of changes and upset to everyone, not to even mention some of dire consequences. Some seniors are finding the time long although a friend told me that she is now walking outside more often for exercise and to ease some of the boredom. She intends […]

Ontario to Replace Dr. David Williams With Smarter Doc. By Jamie Gilcig

MAY 31, 2021 – Dr. David Williams has come under fire during the War against Covid-19 in Ontario. His counsel and decisions have left the province and government open to abuse and ridicule. While it’s late in the game; hopefully Ontario can avoid a fourth wave of the virus that has crossed our planet by […]

No Fans @ Leafs Game 7 – Blame Ontario Premier Doug Ford & Randy Hillier.  By Jamie Gilcig

MAY 30, 2021 – The Habs allowed 2500 rabid fans to attend game six of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs which was a cathartic celebration for those who have endured the Covid-19 Pandemic, but it wasn’t a high risk US style move. It was a reward for a community that has worked […]

Cornwall Kitten Killer Corey Dennison Deserves  a Much Longer Jail Sentence. By Jamie Gilcig

MAY 28, 2021 – Having personally seen how bad the level of injustice is led by corruption and incompetence in Eastern Ontario, and watched a case with Judge Deborah Kinsella allowing a senior mentally delayed man to be violated by a crown and nearly end up in jail for a alleged crime that should never […]

MAY 6, 2021 – “Spring has sprung. The grass is riz. I wonder where the birdies is?” Well, not around this bird feeder for sure. Bob Katz took this photo watching the big black furry squirrel, manoeuvred himself off a wooden beam to this feeder. He filled himself up with lots of seeds apparently before […]

Freeland Budget Geared for Votes More than Supports during Covid-19.  By Jamie Gilcig

APRIL 20, 2021 – Like most things related to politicians disappointment is the usual result. Other media will put the party spin out and highlight the smoke, but the bottom line is that if you are a public servant you’re rocking, but if you’re part of the working class who have paid the biggest price […]

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 […]

MARCH 8, 2021 – On television we see the lineups outside the COVID-19 vaccination clinics. Must be a cold wait for some people, seniors included.

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 […]

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 […]
