Gentleman Jim McDonell Turns SD&SG Blue – Premier McGuinty holds on with 53 seats in Ontario Election – October 7, 2011

CFN –   What an odd end to the Ontario provincial elections.  In the “Big Picture” voter turnout was the key factor with the province slumping under the 50% mark. That means that over half of the eligable voters in this province just couldn’t be bothered or care about voting. How many of those that […]

I endorse Mark A MacDonald to be the next MPP for a Majority Liberal Dalton McGuinty Government for Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig – Editor – The Cornwall Free News

I endorse Mark A MacDonald to be the next MPP for a Majority Liberal Dalton McGuinty Government for Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig – Editor – The Cornwall Free News

CFN –   It’s been a long election season.  Debate after debate, speech after speech, private moments, heated moments, moments that separate one candidate from another. I can say that at both the local riding level here in SD&SG and at the Provincial level where I’ve seen Tim Hudak barr me from an event thus […]

Why Andrea Horwath Bumping the Minimum Wage to $11 Would Kill Small Business & Hurt Seniors – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – October 3, 2011

CFN –  Wow, this 2011 provincial election is almost done.  It’s been an ugly and turdulent affair with Racoons, mice, name calling, liar calling, sleazy 30’s style propaganda, and other trickery. See people don’t get the difference between Ontario NDP and the Federal NDP.   There’s a HUGE difference. The NDP of Jack Layton and […]

The World will not be destroyed by those that do evil; but by those who watch them without doing anything. Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – October 1, 2011

CFN – On Facebook today there was a quote from Albert Einstein; “The World will not be destroyed by those that do evil; but by those who watch them without doing anything.” We live in a conformist world.  Where the Sixties was about confrontation today we shy from it. Why?   Well there’s always a […]

CON-firmative Action – When rookie Party Leaders show their inner ugly – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – September 13, 2011

Cornwall ON –  Tim Hudak was politically spanked this week, and it may in the end cost him the election; although I don’t think he really had much of a chance to win to start? Hudak and his Tea Party Progressive Conservatives pounced like a hyena on a three legged sow with piglets at the […]

Desperate Hudak team sends in the Horsemen.  MPP Lisa MacLeod Joins Mr. McFuddle Mayor Jim MacDonell at Hate Fest in Cornwall Ontario – Saturday September 10, 2011

Cornwall ON –   Isn’t it odd that that Progressive Conservative candidate for SD&SG Jim “McFuddle” McDonell has to have baby sitters when he has a speaking engagement?  Usually it’s Steve Clark, a very Mayor McFuddle strong politician who doesn’t seem to need full day  Kindergarten the way that Mr. McFuddle does. Jim  had MPP […]

Unrest in UK, Syria, China, Spain, Portugal and other places – We need more balance and common sense – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall ON –  Wow, the world seems to be exploding.    Riots across England, Syria, Israel; and even China!   Spain and Portugal, and many other countries around the globe simmering.    Imagine what it takes to get people to that point? httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDgxEYTQk50 Simple answers?  Nope, but I do think it comes down to Universal […]

Systematic Discrimination: What It’s Like Living With A Medical Marijuana License – Opinion by Russell Barth – August 2, 2011

Ottawa ON – I would rather have one than not, but living with a Medical Marijuana License from Health Canada has been a bit of a nightmare. For my wife and I, it has been a stressful and humiliating experience on more than one occasion. The fact that we have to carry “Special Papers” with […]

Harper government divide and conquer – stirring up the language pot from the Nation’s Capitol – July 30, 2011 – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall ON –  The Harper government seems to be tinkering with its divide and conquer policies in Canada, this time doing in our Nation’s capital, Ottawa.    Media reports state that the Federal government has hired secret shoppers to see if businesses are serving consumers in French. While I 100% support people being served by […]

So where do we go from here? Answerless questions and tragic waste of life – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – July 25, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

So where do we go from here?  Answerless questions and tragic waste of life – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – July 25, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON –   Some of you may notice that we here at the Cornwall Free News don’t like to dwell on the standard disaster news story, but frankly I’m overwhelmed by this weekend’s two busiest stories. Both involve death; one the massacre in Norway, and the second being the senseless waste of life that […]

Oh Dear, I’ve upset Chris Savard and Calvin Killoran of Cogeco – Clearing the Air should actually mean CLEARING the air, no? July 21, 2011 – OP ED – Cornwall Ontario

Oh Dear, I’ve upset Chris Savard and Calvin Killoran of Cogeco – Clearing the Air should actually mean CLEARING the air, no? July 21, 2011 – OP ED – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON –   I’m an odd mix.    One of my grand-fathers was a clergyman, a Cantor.  A Cantor is a man of song and learning.   My other grand-father was a pro boxer as a young man who retired undefeated as my grand-mother would not marry a pro boxer! Personally I’d always rather […]

What went wrong with 2011 Kinsman Cornwall Lift Off ? – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – July 20, 2011

Cornwall ON –   So now that the 2011 Kinsman Cornwall Lift Off festivities are over it’s time to do a recap.    As many of you have either heard or read we covered the issue of predatory radio practices by Corus radio for publicly funded events in our region a few weeks ago.  LINK  […]

Decorum or Why Gloating in Politics is Rarely a Wise Thing Mr. Harper.  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – July 11, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON –   Don’t you hate gloaters?  I know I’m not terribly fond of them.    As I read a lot of news. It’s part of the territory; part of the job; part of what I have to do no matter how filtered, jaded, cryptic, and many times innacurate it is. Our Prime Minister […]
