Talking Art in Cornwall & It’s Not Too Late For City to Ditch BOM Building Farce. By Jamie Gilcig 072519

Only in Cornwall can the weird get this weird. What we have is a city that historically has not supported the arts. Right now they are paying more to keep a building empty than they gave to keep its former public art gallery open. The city should not be in the art business. They should […]

Did the Char Lan Sex Abuse Case Fall Through the Cracks? By Jamie Gilcig 071719 #OPP #UCDSB

In our earlier story exposing the incident of SHERYL FONTAINE, a Soccer Coach at Char Lan and a student. LINK more questions begged to be answered than information disclosed? After all, the incident allegedly occurred nearly FIVE years ago with no mention by the OPP or other media. In a small town that’s a long […]

Gail Vaz Oxlade Autism Rant @ Lisa MacLeod Proves the Power of  a Word. By Jamie Gilcig 070119  PROFANITY ALERT

George Carlin would be smiling from ear to ear over the latest explosion about the use of one of his Seven Words you can’t say on TV. Earlier this week Gail, an autism advocate, and clearly not a fan of the Ford gov’t, tweeted out : “Does she know her mother is a heartless cunt? “ […]

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped? By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped?   By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

So I’m reading coverage of a special group think with the assistance from someone from Kingston. They came up with five priorities. The Waterfront, more population, better housing, Economic Development, and Environmental Sustainability (the last of which I’m sure they farted out because they couldn’t’ come up with a real fifth. ) Most of this […]

There Truly is Only 1 Way to Fix Cornwall Ontario BRAMPTON 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 062019

There Truly is Only 1 Way to Fix Cornwall Ontario BRAMPTON 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 062019

The CBC just did a story on Cornwall that certainly won’t help what ails. A population over 5 years older than the rest of the province is only a part of the tale. The biggest problem is the Mayor herself, her team and her supporters. When CFN started in 2009 she was a councilor. Many […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Happy Father’s Day 2019

June 16th. Is Father’s Day. There will be celebrations of family get-togethers and if the weather is nice, lots of BBQ’s to honour all the Dad’s out there. A friend of mine, Bob Katz, just became a new great-grandfather with the birth of his little great-granddaughter Gabriella. What a charming name for a sweet little […]

The Real Issue of People Retention in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 061119

It’s so charming to see the Seaway News hint at some of the core issues here in the River City. It really is, even if they miss the mark. Whether it’s on purpose for fear of losing support from City Hall or simply a lack of talent only the viewer can decide. Shawna O’Neil recently […]

Nick Seebruch Isn’t the Brightest Fellow : FORD BEER @ Corner Stores by Jamie Gilcig 060919

Nick Seebruch Isn’t the Brightest Fellow : FORD BEER     @ Corner Stores by Jamie Gilcig 060919

Nick Seebruch of the Seaway News isn’t the brightest journalist. He takes stands on issues like this while staying silent on important local issues. I get it. When you tell simple truths about bad people doing bad things you end up with less ads in your newspaper. For someone like Nick, possibly being replaced, with […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford May Flowers! Spring is Here & Tiger Tales! 052219

Poets call this the ‘Merry Month of May’. Hasn’t been too ‘merry’ yet with rain and cold damp winds sometimes. But, at least it is Spring. A friend is all thrilled because her crocuses and irises are popping up through the ground and there are flowering trees with pink and white blossoms. The grass is […]

BREAKING Cornwall City Clerk Manon Levesque Exposes Mayor Clement & Campaign Manager For Overspending – Day Before  Committee Meeting 051419

What a dysfunctional attempt at Machiavellian intrigue is going on in the shadows at City Hall in Cornwall. At root is what appears to be the Mayor and CAO throwing Clerk Manon Levesque under the bus for not issuing a final certificate with spending limits for the municipal election that Mayor Bernadette Clement has admitting […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Green Party Opportunities in the Federal Election 050719 #cdnpoli

Lots of folks are watching the recent gains of the Green Party at the provincial level in New Brunswick and PEI and the recent bye-election win in Nanaimo-Ladysmith. They are asking themselves if we are seeing the early beginning of a change in the political landscape. There is no doubt that voters are disenchanted with […]

Was Pellet Gate in Cornwall Really an Umbrella in a Backpack? by Jamie Gilcig 050719

Was Pellet Gate in Cornwall Really an Umbrella in a Backpack? by Jamie Gilcig  050719

Startling communications allege that an event that caused city wide panic and locked down schools and hospitals in January was essentially gross mismanagement by #CCPS Chief Danny Aikman and Deputy Chief Shawna Spowart. The allegations from multiple sources claim that the incident was over an UMBRELLA in a back pack. The original incident, which we […]

CFN Call for Financial Support Due to Conspiratorial City Boycott in Cornwall Ontario 050319  PT1

Canada. Section 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that everyone has “the freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication.” Sadly in the City of Cornwall and SD&G this is a sad joke. It goes beyond freedom of the press and charter rights. I mean, […]
