Tea Party Tim Trashes US President Obama – Snubs Bruins White House Celebrations – January 25, 2012

CFN – We owe Tea Party Tim Thomas a debt of gratitude.   It’s a slow week in the NHL.  No major news out there as the All Star break approaches.  Nobody really cares about the All Star game so Mr. Thomas deciding to be a totally classless human being is making the news far […]

Should Cornwall Ontario Have a Moratorium on Waterfront Development Until a Referendum Question is asked at the next Election?  POLL VIDEO

CFN – After going to Cornwall City Council for awhile you learn a few things.   One, there’s more manure spread than a farm in Spring; and two if someone is on a committee it’s because they have a vested interest or they are doing what they are told. Council also has this wonderful trait […]

What Makes CFN Tick and WHY I Keep Writing by Jamie Gilcig – January 19, 2012

Political Activist Russell Barth Not Impressed by Liberal Call for Marijuana Legalization – January 17, 2012

Political Activist Russell Barth Not Impressed by Liberal Call for Marijuana Legalization – January 17, 2012

CFN –   As someone who has been up to his eyeballs in pot activism for 9 years, I would classify this Liberal vote to legalize pot as a bamboozle. The delegates did the right thing, and should be commended for their hard work, but the party will likely not follow up on this. Not […]

Liberal Party Going GREEN – Legalizing Marijuana Right Step as Party Rebuild and Growth Continue – January 16, 2012

CFN – So I’m not seeing it yet.   This weekend’s Federal Liberal caucus probably drew more people than the Conservatives and NDP combined.
