Cornwall Ontario Cat Hating Mayor Bernadette Clement Admits City Has Not Done Ford  Line by Line Financial Review. By Jamie Gilcig  082319

Over 90 per cent of eligible municipalities have participated in the Ford governments line-by-line budget review. Cornwall’s Cat hating mayor Bernadette Clement admitted recently at the AMO conference that the city was not one of those to take the provincial funded exercise. Why wouldn’t she and the city do so? After all we clearly have […]

Stolen Valour Canada Responds to Terry Birch Story & CFN FILES 082219

The Terry Birch story is becoming a bigger story because of the recent medal award to him and the weak sauce spin the Local Legion has tried to pull to avoid yet another Stolen Valour stain. Clearly this also exposes statements made to other media by his son on his behalf. Mr. Birch was given […]

Cornwall Legion Shames Itself Again Over Birch Case & CFN Snub. By Jamie Gilcig 082119

This newspaper is generally the only one that will tackle sensitive issues in Cornwall. It’s cost us money, resources, friendships, and even seen myself land in jail on false police charges by a corrupt Police Force that I clearly had not committed. IE, I was charged with making Threatening Phone Calls which a production record […]

Does Canada Have a Gambling Problem? Not Really.

Does Canada Have a Gambling Problem? Not Really.

While the debate surrounding legal gambling, both online and offline, swirls in the US, Canadians have long enjoyed access to legal gambling in some form or another.  Yet, in each of Canada’s 10 provinces and three territories, ‘legal gambling’ takes a very different form. The regulations across each of these areas vary wildly.  What this […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Has May Thought Through #lavscam Inquiry Bite? 081819

Ever since the Ethics Commissioners Report landed with a bang on Trudeau’s desk, the opposition parties have been hard at work attacking the Liberals over the SNC Lavalin scandal. This is what opposition parties are supposed to do, but with an election so close this issue takes on even more importance. For instance, the Leader […]

Stupid is as Stupid Does – Cornwall Council Votes Themselves a Raise – Cats to be Desexed! 081319

Stupid is as Stupid Does – Cornwall Council Votes Themselves a Raise – Cats to be Desexed! 081319

By Jamie Gilcig As repeatedly shared, the recipe for insanity is to repeat something that doesn’t work. Just a snippet from last night’s council meeting. Our corrupt and rigged council voted themselves a modest raise, a bit this year to catch up with tax changes, and bit more because Elaine MacDonald seems to think sitting […]

Marijuana Politics & Akwesasne. By Jamie Gilcig 080119

Marijuana Politics & Akwesasne. By Jamie Gilcig 080119

Akwesasne has a long history of weed traffic. While many focus on the illegal tobacco smuggling; Marijuana has long been moved through Akwesasne. In fact when this newspaper covered allegations of Fentanyl laced cannabis they were based in Akwesasne. Frightening enough, the EOHU ran to another media squealing that there wasn’t any. All the local […]

Talking Art in Cornwall & It’s Not Too Late For City to Ditch BOM Building Farce. By Jamie Gilcig 072519

Only in Cornwall can the weird get this weird. What we have is a city that historically has not supported the arts. Right now they are paying more to keep a building empty than they gave to keep its former public art gallery open. The city should not be in the art business. They should […]

Did the Char Lan Sex Abuse Case Fall Through the Cracks? By Jamie Gilcig 071719 #OPP #UCDSB

In our earlier story exposing the incident of SHERYL FONTAINE, a Soccer Coach at Char Lan and a student. LINK more questions begged to be answered than information disclosed? After all, the incident allegedly occurred nearly FIVE years ago with no mention by the OPP or other media. In a small town that’s a long […]

Gail Vaz Oxlade Autism Rant @ Lisa MacLeod Proves the Power of  a Word. By Jamie Gilcig 070119  PROFANITY ALERT

George Carlin would be smiling from ear to ear over the latest explosion about the use of one of his Seven Words you can’t say on TV. Earlier this week Gail, an autism advocate, and clearly not a fan of the Ford gov’t, tweeted out : “Does she know her mother is a heartless cunt? “ […]

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped? By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped?   By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

So I’m reading coverage of a special group think with the assistance from someone from Kingston. They came up with five priorities. The Waterfront, more population, better housing, Economic Development, and Environmental Sustainability (the last of which I’m sure they farted out because they couldn’t’ come up with a real fifth. ) Most of this […]

There Truly is Only 1 Way to Fix Cornwall Ontario BRAMPTON 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 062019

The CBC just did a story on Cornwall that certainly won’t help what ails. A population over 5 years older than the rest of the province is only a part of the tale. The biggest problem is the Mayor herself, her team and her supporters. When CFN started in 2009 she was a councilor. Many […]

The Real Issue of People Retention in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 061119

It’s so charming to see the Seaway News hint at some of the core issues here in the River City. It really is, even if they miss the mark. Whether it’s on purpose for fear of losing support from City Hall or simply a lack of talent only the viewer can decide. Shawna O’Neil recently […]
