Letter to the Editor – The Interview  by William Hopkinson JAN 20, 2015

I was just curious how many, if any, people have seen “The Interview?” My wife and I watched it on VOD Saturday night on our local television service provider.  I can see why the North Koreans are a “little” upset at Columbia Pictures / Sony Pictures.  The North Koreans, for the most part, are not […]

From hopelessness to hope: Cornwall’s poppy defacement after the tragic loss of reservist Nathan Cirillo  By Mary Anne Pankhurst

Hope doesn’t always spring eternal. This was especially true (for me) in late summer, after the 100th anniversary of WW1 slipped back into the past, and August was on the wane.

In fact, they get double messaging by falsely claiming job creation benefits. For one, a rebate of pennies in EI premiums to small businesses does not create jobs. A […]

Mark A MacDonald Calls Cornwall & District Labour Council Divisive  – LTE  Sept 4, 2014
