EI Premium Rebate is Political Marketing – Letter to the Editor by Tom Manley

EI Premium Rebate is Political Marketing – Letter to the Editor by Tom Manley

The old saying is “any free advertising is good advertising”. The Harper Conservatives exploit that by getting air time over a useless rebate in EI premiums. 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

Greetings: The upcoming Labour Council debate is a prime example of doing the same thing and expecting a different result.  It’s an attempt by the CDLC to push their own agenda and it only results in dividing candidates.Chemical tanks on our waterfront, resignations, criminal charges, huge payoffs, and closed door meeting violations, are just a […]

Letter to the Editor from MP Claude Gravelle Canada Needs a National Dementia Plan – Aug 14, 2014

I have a 43-year-old teacher volunteering on my campaign for a national dementia plan because, astonishingly, Matt’s wife who is 45 is already in secure, long-term care with the illness (Frontotemporal dementia, FTD) . They have three children – 14, 12 and 10. About 15 per cent of the 750,000 Canadians living with dementia are […]

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.

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

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

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 […]

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 […]
