Tom Manley Calls MP Guy Lauzon on Tax Payer Partisan Mail Outs AUGUST 2, 2014 LTE

Tom Manley Calls MP Guy Lauzon on Tax Payer Partisan Mail Outs AUGUST 2, 2014  LTE

I recently picked up the Tax Guide at our local post office, published by our MP Guy Lauzon. Most tax measures in the guide are OK, some implemented by the previous Liberal government, and others adopted by the current Conservative government.   Otherwise, the document is a disgusting partisan rag paid by our tax dollars. […]

While the eminent who’s who of Cornwall has taken up the baton in regard to developing a university at Cornwall, perhaps some questions may be asked about job prospects for future graduates.

Marc Pilote of Cornwall Ontario on Council Pay Increase – July 12, 2014  Letter to the Editor

I normally don’t comment much on municipal affairs but the issue of pay increases for city council that will come up Monday night bothers me no end and proves in my mind that those advocating it are in it for the money. I covered city council for about 30 years and of course pay hikes were always […]

Do We Kill the Messenger?  Letter to the Editor by Dave Windsor of Cornwall Ontario

Yes, Cornwall Has a Kill the Messenger Mentality I see myself as a moderate reasonable unbiased thinker.  So I come to ask myself why is their so much antagonism towards some media reports/reporters in this community.  Here, is what it comes down to, in my modest understandings.  Long term service, small town mentality causing laziness with […]

Letter to the Editor – Harry Valentine Challenges Gilcig Mayoralty Platform – June 30, 2014

Letter to the Editor – Harry Valentine Challenges Gilcig Mayoralty Platform – June 30, 2014

TO: Jamie   I read with interest your promise, if elected to public office, to attract $25/hour jobs to Cornwall. I will urge you re-consider such a promise given that the North American economy is in a mess. The US-dollar is the world’s reserve currency and unless US lawmakers drastically reduce their spending on defense […]

Russell Barth – Should Marijuana Should Be Sold To Kids Like Chocolate Or Cola? June 26, 2014

Russell Barth – Should Marijuana Should Be Sold To Kids Like Chocolate Or Cola? June 26, 2014

CFN – When we look at the science and history of cannabis, we see that it is safer than cola, coffee, or chocolate. When one considers that cola and chocolate products almost always have a lot of sugar in them, and coffee sometimes has sugar, we realize that cannabis is much safer. And when we factor in the myriad […]

Are Canadian Soldiers Being Jailed Over PTSD & Mental Health Issues? – Letter to the Editor – June 17, 2014

Letter to the editor: It seems as though everyone who works for the Ontario Ministry of Justice, including crown attorneys, judges, prison guards and provincial police officers may conduct their duties without being held accountable for the actions or inactions? A very close friend of mine, decorated veteran Sgt Collin Fitzgerald has been wrongfully accused […]

Letter to the Editor on Electricity In Ontario by William Hopkinson of Cornwall

Hydro One has to be stopped.   With the recent announcement that the Ontario Hydro debt retirement charge will be taken off hydro bills in 2016 they seem to be buttering up the Ontario voter and taxpayer.  That debt was actually paid off in 2010.  Thankfully, in Cornwall we are not subject to the Ontario Hydro […]

demise of freedom of speech through social and political correctness in Canada – LTE Pastor Tom Newton of Cornwall Ontario

The demise of freedom of speech through social and political correctness in Canada:   I have been following the events of an American pro-family activist named Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

Mark A MacDonald Alleges Cornwall Ontario Being Bullied By Federal Government Over Chem Tanks on Waterfront

Greetings MP Lauzon: Further to my email to you last week, take notice that I am still waiting to hear from you, when will the chemical tank farm be removed from our waterfront?

Letter to the Editor – Eric Little of Ottawa Ontario on Linguistic Administration Costs

With health care in Ontario taking about half of the annual budget and rising, have you wondered how much administration cost there is, even before the hospital’s share? Is that an area to review for savings?   We see much dedication and administration expense towards the promotion of French through doubling of services, and as […]

Letter to the Editor – Nathanael Newton on Enbridge 9b Pipeline – March 7, 2014

Would you tie yourself to a fence to force the Police to arrest you if you believed in something strongly enough?

Letter to the Editor – Nathanael Newton on Enbridge 9b Pipeline – March 7, 2014

That certainly seems quite extreme; however, this is exactly what 398 students from the United States did last week.   For the past few years 350.org (among many others) has been spearheading a campaign against the expansion of the Keystone XL pipeline that is slated to begin transporting Tar Sands bitumen from Alberta to the […]

Sounds like Mark A MacDonald is Campaigning in Cornwall Ontario – LTE March 2, 2014

The colossal mistake of building chemical storage tanks on our waterfront is a prime example of a city council lacking clear direction, which I must take some responsibility for. We desperately need a city council that can focus on an agenda that will bring some meaningful progress to our city. Resignations, criminal charges, huge payoffs and secret […]
