It really is time to regulate the Internet Providers in Canada or Open up Real Fair Competition – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – May 20, 2011

Cornwall ON – So I’m moving.     I of course need internet and after dealing with both Bell Internet and Cogeco can tell you we really need to allow more competition. Cogeco’s internet product by far is the best here in Cornwall Ontario and I called them today to transfer it to our new […]

Of Demagogues & Hypocrites – Attacks on New NDP MP’s and Bell vs Sun Round 2 – Monday Morning dribbles –  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – May 9, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – As I watch the headlines pass by on Twitter and read my daily round of media I’m astounded by the sour grapes attacking of the new rookie NDP MP’s. Astounded that this would be such a huge topic to write about.   Currently the target du jour is Ruth Ellen Brousseau. Ms […]

I agree with Jean Chretien. MP Bob Rae should be the Interim Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – May 7, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

I agree with Jean Chretien.  MP Bob Rae should be the Interim Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada.  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – May 7, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Jean Chretien, three time majority Liberal Prime Minister of Canada, yesterday stated that Liberal MP Bob Rae should be interim leader until a leadership review be held in two years. The Liberals suffered their worst election results in generations; the seeds of which were planted by their own lack of unity with […]

Why We Need Communications Regulations – Bell VS Fox TV North – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – May 5, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – One of the scary things about having Mr. Harper finally get his majority is the impacts and precedents I and many others fear it’s going to set. Before the election UBB was and still is a very large issue.   There was a break, a delay if you will, a proroguing of […]

A Chill in the Morning After Election Night – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – May 3, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Well the Canadian people have spoken.   This morning we wake up to a Harper majority government with the Conservatives picking up 167 of 308 seats in Parliament.   It’s pretty clear. We can talk about the politics of spin.  We can talk about corruption.  We can talk about dirty tricks, but […]

Osama Bin Laden Announced Dead & Canada Votes for its next PM – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig  – May 2, 2011

Cornwall ON – May Day, May 1st has been associated with organized labour for an awfully long time.    During WW2 the Nazi’s tried to make it their day to pull from the Communists who were for so long synonymous with organized labour around the world. On May 1st the US announced that it had […]

The Cornwall Free News Endorses for the 2011 Federal Election…Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – April 29, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – The Twitterverse pounds you with news if you follow enough scribblers and news sites.  It’s like a rush of heroin without the …..heroin.   It’s a busy Manhattan street or the rush of the London tube. Just a cacophony of messages; most of them sales pitches and spins. This has been a […]

Nanos-Land and the New Media by Jamie Labonte – April 24, 2011

South Stormont, ON – There are many major players in the current political battle and most are well known. . There is Stephen Harper, the would-be benevolent patriarch, Michael Ignatieff , the “David” to Harper’s “Goliath” fighting insurmountable polling numbers, Jack Layton, the underdog that makes bold speaches and gestures with no fear of reprisal and of course Gilles Duceppe, […]

So I’m still undecided on who to vote for on May 2 in the upcoming Canadian Federal Election…EDITORIAL by Jamie Gilcig – April 24, 2011

So I’m still undecided on who to vote for on May 2 in the upcoming Canadian Federal Election…EDITORIAL by Jamie Gilcig – April 24, 2011

Cornwall ON – So it’s one week to show time for Canada and all of our futures.    It’s been the most anti-climactic and non-focused election I’ve lived through to date. The Harper game plan is like a Jacques Martin hockey plan; get a lead and hide and hold onto it.  I can’t argue that, […]

Andre Rivette Lone Councilor to Balk at Unsecured Interest Free Loan to Kinsmen Cornwall Lift Off 2011

Andre Rivette Lone Councilor to Balk at Unsecured Interest Free Loan to Kinsmen Cornwall Lift Off 2011

Cornwall ON – Today Cornwall City Council granted a discombobulated Lift Off team an unsecured short term interest free loan of $30,000. One councilor voted against it, Andre Rivettte.  Kudos to him. As a small business owner and home owner I’m shocked and stunned.   Is City Hall really in the banking business now? Can […]

Kinsmen Cornwall Lift Off 2011 Springing a Leak – Goes to City Hall to ask for $30K Loan – Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – April 20, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – The Lift Off Festival is going to City Council today; hat in hand, looking for $30K in loans.   It’s going to put some interesting pressure on council, but in the end I’d be sadly disappointed if these dollars are advanced.  There is no financial device that makes sense to such a loan; especially […]

Bridging the Issues in SD&SG Federal Election Campaign by Jamie Gilcig – April 9, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Joseph Goebbels is considered a great propagandist and one of  the tenets he practiced, not invented as many think, is that if you tell a lie often enough it starts to become the truth. The Ottawa Citizen managed to get all four of our Federal Candidates to sit down for a debate […]

Greens Still Not at Federal Debate Table – Why? Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – April 5, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Greens Still Not at Federal Debate Table – Why?  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – April 5, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – I hate going to court personally.   I really do feel that most times it’s the guilty that are protected more than the victims.   Today Green Party leader Elizabeth May lost her bid to use the courts to force the Media Consortium to allow her to debate the other mostly Federal […]

1984 Happening in China? Is Canada Next? Chinese Artist Ai Weiwei, Writers, Human Right’s Lawyers, and Bloggers Detained Over Jasmine Revolution – April 4, 2011

1984 Happening in China?  Is Canada Next?  Chinese Artist Ai Weiwei, Writers, Human Right’s Lawyers, and Bloggers Detained Over Jasmine Revolution – April 4, 2011

Cornwall ON – In George Orwell’s classic novel 1984 it was forbidden to write.  Having pen & paper and using them could be punishable by death.   The book’s first chapter starts in April which makes it ironic to read about Ai Weiwei, the Chinese artist and activist who has just been arrested by Chinese officials […]

Happy April Fools Day! Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – April 1, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Happy April Fools Day!  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig – April 1, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – I was going to write an April Fools story this morning.   Usually I come out with one claiming that I’ve become a Conservative and embrace our local MP Guy Lauzon. Then I started to think about what’s going on around me a bit.  Upcoming elections, Japan, death, destruction, recession, athletes foot, […]
