CFN – With the Province of Ontario considering new locations for OPG Casinos the conversation has started again here in Cornwall.

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, […]

How Facebook Reunited Me With the Very First Girl I Ever Dated by Jamie Gilcig – March 18, 2012

  CFN – I always marvel when people recoil from the internet or websites like Facebook.    They’re tools; inanimate unless people do something with them, like broccoli or automatic hand guns.

The Power of Words – When the Lawyers Start to Dance –  Editorial By Jamie Gilcig – March 13, 2012

CFN –  Transference is an interesting concept.   Essentially many people view what others would do based on what they would do. For example; if I thought that someone hated me and would tell lies about me then I would tell lies about them.    In some strange sense it would be acceptable to my […]
