Time for Doug Ford to Step Up & Deal with Randy Hillier & Rod Phillips.  By Jamie Gilcig

DECEMBER 30, 2020 – Premier Doug Ford likes to portray himself as a “friend”.

Cornwall Needs a COVID-19 Lockdown as Cases Explode & Paul Roumeliotis Needs to be Replaced. By Jamie Gilcig

NOVEMBER 7, 2020 – I feel bad for the Cornwall Community Hospital Staff, at least those that don’t do smoke breaks out back without masks or social distancing.

Chris Wallace Loses Control of First US Presidential Debate.  By Jamie Gilcig

SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 – If Politics truly are a blood sport, veteran journalist and Fox broadcaster Chris Wallace proves it after a brutal Presidential debate.

Erin O’Toole is Pushing Me to Support the Liberals in the Next Election.  By Jamie Gilcig

SEPTEMBER 18, 2020 – I am a hyper non partisan voter. I go one election at a time because I’ve seen the damage that partisan politics cause.

Premier Ford We’re Not Ready for Stage 3. By Jamie Gilcig

JULY 14, 2020 – As I sit here I fear for my community. I fear that our leadership is failing again by not clearly mandating the wearing of masks and not enforcing what laws and rules are in place. That’s not a mix for success and it doesn’t make sense to move forward until we […]

Cornwall & EOHU Failing on Social Distancing & Masking Up. By Jamie Gilcig #covid19

What a wild week. So much illness. So much death. We will survive, but the World will never be the same, much as it changed after 9/11. And it’s just beginning. We will see a huge financial disaster, one of epic size that we haven’t seen in about 100 years. We all will be losing […]
