Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Events, Painting & a Tiger Tale 012020

Soup’s on!! That has a nice delicious sound to it. “Comin’, Ma!” Oops! No! Ma’s not cooking. Twenty chefs are. And…if you want some, go to the Civic Complex on January 21st. in Salons ABC anytime from 11:30am until 2pm. According to information I received from the Alzheimer Society, there will be 20 soups by […]

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, you owe the American Government an Apology. By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli #uspoli 011420

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, you owe the American Government an Apology.   By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli #uspoli 011420

It’s been a hot mess watching the tragedy play out in Iran. The shooting down of an Ukranian airplane with 57 Canadians out of 173 souls was an act of terrorism and murder. While some are calling it an accident, the plane clearly flew from Iran. IE, flight control in Iran knew it was in […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Will Trudeau Pounce on PC Leadership Void? #cdnpoli 122219

If you love comedy you will enjoy following the Conservative Party after they lost the 2019 election. Over decades of working with and for them, I often heard them say how the country should be run more like a business. Well they can’t even run their own party and if their party was a business, […]

Seniors Situation Room by   Dawn Ford  2019 Christmas & Hanukkah & CNIB Guide Dogs 121619

I received a beautiful 2020 calendar from CNIB Guide Dogs. Wonderful photos of the dogs each month. I went on line to read more about this organization. There are three career options for the dogs: Guide Dogs which are partnered with adults with sight loss, Buddy Dogs are partnered with children with sight loss and […]

Rona Ambrose is the Only Possible Leader Able to Defeat Trudeau for Conservatives.  By Jamie Gilcig 121319 #cdnpoli

Andrew Scheer lost to Justin Trudeau. No need to rehash the high end baggage that Trudeau and his Liberals carried into this last Federal Election, but it’s clear to say that a party only one term out of office with a strong base should’ve earned an easy majority. Does that Conservative brand have issues? Yes, […]

We Get Letters :  Michael Labelle Says Goodbye Cornwall, Not Been Nice 121319

Editor’s Note. Mike was born in Cornwall. Went off for his career, and attempted to retire to Cornwall having purchased a home in Riverdale. Hi Jamie. I thought I should make it official for you. I am no longer a resident of Cornwall. Before I trash them I should give the thumbs up. 1/ the […]

We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko on Calibration of Smart Meters & Cornwall Water Meters 120519

Water Meters: OK what makes Cornwall so unique to have one of the highest water consumption per capita in all of Canada (ref.: Based on the city’s research, people across Canada use about 250 liters of water per person per day while in Cornwall it’s about 450 liters.”). How was this figured obtained – was […]

Cornwall Residential Water Meters A Desperate Cash Grab.  By Jamie Gilcig #cwlpoli 120519

The most stunning thing about Cornwall Politics is that the sheep are stunningly silent until it’s too late. Facing an anticipated 7% tax rate hike, city management and council have been flirting and floating having “Smart Water Meters” for the approximately 16,000 buildings in Cornwall. The basic argument for such meters is usually conservation. Numbers […]

With dreams of Santa on the way, children are getting excited. I went on line to learn about how this Santa Claus legend first began. It is traced to a benevolent monk born in Patara, near Myra in modern day Turkey, about 270 AD, Saint Nicholas, a fourth century Christian saint of children and sailors, […]

Conrad Black: The IPCC isn’t quite as apocalyptic as Greta Thunberg 120219 #grnpoli

I am not trying to twist the IPCC’s meaning. It clearly acknowledges that an acceleration (and a slight acceleration at that) in global warming is not certain and if it occurs at all, it will not be solely due to human activities. The Green Terror grips Canada. Everyone can agree that environmental pollution should be […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Time For Andrew Scheer to Take a Walk in the Snow #cdnpoli 120119

Back in 1984, Pierre Elliot Trudeau went for his famous walk in the snow and then announced his resignation. Perhaps it is time for Andrew Scheer to do the same. It is time for Scheer to put his ego aside and consider the impact of his staying on as leader on the party, his family […]

Cross Border Shopping Blues for Upstate NY Self Inflicted. By Jamie Gilcig 112719

Cross Border Shopping Blues for Upstate NY Self Inflicted.  By Jamie Gilcig 112719

Growing up in Montreal in the 70’s led me, as well as thousands of my fellow near border Canadians to spending time in Upstate NY. My dad being my dad we ended up owning a few houses, and after having breakfast in a “joint” called Ma Coakley’s kitchen. After eating breakfast there one Saturday morning […]

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley – New Cabinet, Same Trudeau 112219 #cdnpoli

When does 35+2= 0 That isn’t new math, that is the sum total of Trudeau’s new cabinet. Adding two extra ministers hasn’t helped a bit and the deadwood remains, maybe shuffled around a bit, but still there. Let’s look at 3 examples: Mona Fortier is the new Minister of Middle Class Prosperity. Now there is […]

Scotia Bank Call Centre Folds More Job Decay in Cornwall Ontario. By Jamie Gilcig 112219

Scores, Lowe’s, and now the Scotia Bank call centre. It’s becoming clear that Cornwall Ontario simply isn’t a place to succeed in business. Normally closures come after Christmas, but there are starting to flood before. A weak employee pool, corrupt and incompetent City Hall, scandals, high electrical rates, and runaway taxes simply are not good […]

We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko – Another Business Closing in Cornwall 112119

Another Business Closing : It’s sad, another loss for workers and bigger unemployment lines. In parallel, Cornwall at least on paper gets another black eye. Perception all around will be that Cornwall cannot keep business afloat. Most of us suspect though that two (2) big box hardware stores in Cornwall was ill conceived at the […]

Cornwall Mayor Clement Hugs Disgraced Educator John McMartin Who Was Charged w Child Sex Assault 111919

This council reflects our mayor perfectly. Sloppy, unthinking, feebly emotional, and all veneer with little to no substance, leadership, or remote understanding of her and their roles on council. It just goes to show that if you sell your soul to Labour and agree to rubber stamp their demands you too can have a lovely […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford  Snow, War Amps & Kenny Rogers in Cornwall 111919

On Nov. 11th we had a big snow fall. Luckily it held off until the Remembrance Day ceremonies were over. I had this vague memory of being there as a kid with my class from Central Public. I talked to some seniors and they were talking about the days when they used to go to […]
