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

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 […]

What Teens Need To Know About Marijuana (From An Adult Who Uses Ten Grams A Day) by Russell Barth – July 9, 2011

What Teens Need To Know About Marijuana (From An Adult Who Uses Ten Grams A Day) by Russell Barth – July 9, 2011

CFN – Teens are getting a lot of mixed messages about marijuana these days. At school, the teachers, cops, and so called “experts” come in and tell them that marijuana is addictive, that it causes cancer, brain damage, and mental illness, and that the use thereof will inevitably lead to the spiral of addiction to […]

Russell Barth OP ED – RE: So I’ve changed my mind about Marijuana – July 6, 2011 – Nepean Ontario

  CFN – Jamie Gilcig probably thinks he is as hip as hip can get, now that he has finally dragged his opinion into the 21st century. But sadly, he still gets it kind of wrong. First off, although “dope” is still an accepted slang term for marijuana, it denotes stupidity (as in, you would […]

When Did “Liberal” become a bad word or How Canada’s Learning to Love Blue? Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – July 3, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

When Did “Liberal” become a bad word or How Canada’s Learning to Love Blue?  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – July 3, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – We are living in scary odd times.    In the US, where terms like Neo-Con get used a lot, George Bush and his cronies were tossed out after eight years in office.   War, an economy nearing Greek like stages; and public dissension probably not seen since the 60’s rule many parts […]

Healthcare, Healthcare, a bit more Healtcare – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – June 22, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Healthcare, Healthcare, a bit more Healtcare – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – June 22, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Healthcare, Healthcare, Healthcare.   There is no issue as important in Canada right now.  It’s about our identity; our sovereignty, and frankly it’s about who we are and how we treat each other. It’s also about money and power and when those two get together it can be a very bumpy ride.   […]

PAS DE PITIÉ POUR LES EMPLOYÉS DE L’ÉTAT -le rédacteur d’op par Mario Leclerc – 22 juin, 2011

Cornwall ON – D’ici 2014, les réductions d’impôts décrétées par les Conservateurs en 2006 auront coûté au public 220 milliards de dollars, soit un manque à gagner de 36 milliards par année, qui se traduit par des coupures dans les services publics.   Le gel du budget de fonctionnement des ministères entraînera une diminution importante de […]

PERSONNE N’A DEMANDÉ D’ÊTRE PAUVRE – Mario Leclerc – 18 juin, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – La pauvreté est une question sociale importante car elle affecte les perspectives de développement des enfants et des adultes. Les gens laissés en marge économiquement ont aussi tendance à être en marge socialement. Certaines personnes sont ruinées du jour au lendemain, pour cause de dettes, de rupture familiale ou à la suite du décès de […]

500 Police Say, Make My Marijuana, Mohawk Marijuana Again And Again And Again by Spanner McNeil – June 16, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Twenty years ago, July 11, 1991 First Nation speakers came together from all over North America to commemorate the events known as the Oka Crisis. It was a time of healing, respect, dignity and a strong path forward. What has happened since then? What has happened lately? There was another invasion by […]
