Is Cornwall’s COVID 19 Coronavirus Pandemic Drill Coming to a Close?  LTE 030320

Dear Editor, From shortly after midnight, and into the early hours of March 6, 2020, the Diamond Princess evacuees hope to leave the Cornwall Nav Centre quarantine facility and take back their lives. And if we’ve dodged a bullet, it’s chiefly because nobody was infected to start with, and it was “in spite of” mismanaged […]

Why Canada’s Reconciliation Plans Have Failed by Doug George-Kanentiio  Akwesasne Mohawk 030120

I am a residential school survivor and this reconciliation thing was a failure from the beginning. Why-because none of those highly paid federal civil servants-including the Native ones-had the common sense to ask us what we thought would work and how. Not once did any of these people come to Akwesasne and ask to meet […]

Council Continues to Waste Cash on Bank of Montreal Art Centre Building Follies. By Jamie Gilcig 022720

I swear you can’t make up this utter and complete waste of money. The Bank of Montreal building is not a former theatre. It does not have parking. It will take millions of dollars to create a black box theatre that will be a white elephant in a community that is struggling financially. This is […]

PREMIUM CONTENT So I’m Watching the 1st Nations Illegal Blockade Drama…It’s Time to Take Action. By Jamie Gilcig  Editorial

What a hot mess. At root is the law of the land is being trampled on. IF a society doesn’t have rule of law respected then our laws are not really worth anything. We have court injunctions not being respected. We have police services refusing to enforce court orders. We have Canada near paralyzed by […]

Gay Agenda Pushing Hard in Cornwall & SD&G – Complaints About Drag Story Time. By Jamie Gilcig

We all want to live in a diverse world and support everyone to be the best person they can possibly be. I know I do. Lord knows I love a good drag show too. Drag Queens, as highlighted in movies like Priscilla and Too Wong Foo helped mainstream what was once a slice of Burlesque. […]

Letter to the Editor on Coronavirus in Cornwall 012620

Letter to the Editor on Coronavirus in Cornwall 012620

Dear Editor, Does Canada have the resources to lock down a population of millions in a half dozen cities? Does Ontario have the wherewithal to build a couple of 1000 bed hospitals in two weeks? Does any public safety authority have the gumption to institute an aggressive screening and tracking protocol? Anyways, while you’re counting […]

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, you owe the American Government an Apology. By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli #uspoli 011420

It’s been a hot mess watching the tragedy play out in Iran. The shooting down of an Ukranian airplane with 57 Canadians out of 173 souls was an act of terrorism and murder. While some are calling it an accident, the plane clearly flew from Iran. IE, flight control in Iran knew it was in […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Will Trudeau Pounce on PC Leadership Void? #cdnpoli 122219

If you love comedy you will enjoy following the Conservative Party after they lost the 2019 election. Over decades of working with and for them, I often heard them say how the country should be run more like a business. Well they can’t even run their own party and if their party was a business, […]

Rona Ambrose is the Only Possible Leader Able to Defeat Trudeau for Conservatives.  By Jamie Gilcig 121319 #cdnpoli

Andrew Scheer lost to Justin Trudeau. No need to rehash the high end baggage that Trudeau and his Liberals carried into this last Federal Election, but it’s clear to say that a party only one term out of office with a strong base should’ve earned an easy majority. Does that Conservative brand have issues? Yes, […]
