Cornwall Ontario Waterfront Debacle – Who is to Blame?   Questions?  Ed Lumley Speaks – June 18, 2012

CFN – It’s been an interesting week since the Waterfront Development sessions in Cornwall Ontario.   Politics are always fun to watch; especially when the politicians are smarter and more savvy. The public at the sessions were very loud and clear about not wanting development in their park; development meaning “CONDOS”.   I’m sure the […]

Is the Montreal Student Strike the End of Canada as We Know it?  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig

CFN – Ah what interesting times we live in…   The Montreal Student protest is becoming International news.  Countless pieces have been written about it by hundreds of people… As a former Montrealer who grew up during the 70’s, the heart of linguistic purges in Quebec I saw first hand how Quebec language politics work.

Does Cornwall Ontario Need Ten City Councilors? Waterfront subterfuge?  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – May 22, 2012

CFN – This term of City Council here in Cornwall has shown the holes in the council system.   In a time when the City of Ottawa even is considering dropping from 24 councilors it’s starting to make a lot of sense.   LINK We have ten councilors currently.   There is no ward system […]

I’m told that I […]

Is it Time for People in Cornwall Ontario to Start Working Together & End Exclusivity for Publicly Funded Events?

Is it Time for People in Cornwall Ontario to Start Working Together & End Exclusivity for Publicly Funded Events?

CFN –  Personally I’ve always felt that working with people is always better than not.    Since entering the media biz three years ago I’ve discovered that many people feel otherwise, but I’m going to stick to my perception. I’ve watched community events where one media company asks for “exclusivity” at the expense ultimately of […]

420 on Parliament Hill Sets Attendance Record  by Russell Barth – April 20, 2012

CFN -As Ottawa’s (arguably) most publicly-known marijuana activist, I have been consistently embarrassed in the eyes of my fellow activists – both nationally and internationally – by Ottawa stoners’ propensity for splitting the 420 crowds into two. Year after year, half the participants were going to Parliament Hill, and half were going to nearby Major’s Hill […]

Why I no longer will be a member of any Political Party here in Canada by Jamie Gilcig – March 29, 2012

Why I no longer will be a member of any Political Party here in Canada by Jamie Gilcig – March 29, 2012

CFN –  I’ve  decided to become Issue-Centric politically.    After three years in this industry I’ve lost any desire to belong to a political party. Traditionally I’ve been Liberal, but frankly the Federal scene and local scene have burned that out of me. The utter hypocrisy and evil of people like Stephen Harper, Tim Hudak, […]
