#CCPS Spowart & Aikman Get 2019 Hypocrite of the Year Award for Pink Shirt Anti Bullying by Jamie Gilcig 022719

There’s hypocrisy and then there’s the brand of hypocrisy that is part of the Cornwall Ontario Bully Culture. When asked about an incident of alleged bullying, with a racial slant, that occured in his pre police days, this is what Chief Aikman sent to this newspaper. Mr. Gilcig, I received your email of November 22, 2018. […]

Magnificent SNC-Lavalin Scandal is Absurdly Canadian by Conrad Black 022319

Magnificent SNC-Lavalin Scandal is Absurdly Canadian by Conrad Black 022319

This is too innocuous for the Americans, too wholesome for Latin America, too complicated for the Swiss and Scandinavians The SNC-Lavalin affair is the quintessential Canadian controversy. It is alleged by unnamed sources that the former justice minister and attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was pressured to order her officials to assess fines rather than prosecute […]

Seniors Situation Room  by Dawn Ford – First Dementia Villages in Canada 021919

These snowy days remind me of the winters we had when we were kids. I can’t remember too many days though that the schools were closed unless it was a very big storm. Bet we would have liked that. We walked back and forth to school and attended from 9 to 4pm, going home for […]

Jody 1 Justin 0 – Butts Resigns from Trudeau PMO by Jamie Gilcig 021919

Jody 1 Justin 0 – Butts Resigns from Trudeau PMO by Jamie Gilcig 021919

Hell hath no scorn like…… Gerald Butts has resigned. This is mammoth. By legal stance it of course is not an indication of any guilt, but by political standards it’s a fart breath away from going full McGuinty, who oddly enough was where Gerald Butts cut his teeth politically. It’s odd in 2019; that the […]

Conrad Black: Trudeau Liberals Bungled the Overblown SNC-Lavalin Affair 021619

Conrad Black: Trudeau Liberals Bungled the Overblown SNC-Lavalin Affair 021619

By accepting her change of positions, Wilson-Raybould has largely disqualified herself from complaining now about the motives for her so-called demotion The SNC-Lavalin matter has become a showcase for a panoply of media and political attitudes of widely varying levels of justification. To review some of the elements, there was nothing wrong, practically or ethically, […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Justice Committee on SNC-Lavalin Scandal Goes Nowhere – 021419

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley –  Justice Committee on SNC-Lavalin Scandal Goes Nowhere – 021419

Yesterday the drama on the Hill unfolded as expected when the Justice Committee met on the SNC-Lavalin scandal. Everyone knew opposition MPs would be demanding answers to the SNC-Lavalin mess while the Liberals would try and stonewall any investigation. Other than a lot of phony outrage, did anyone actually expect the Liberals to allow an […]

Justin Trudeau’s SUNNY DAYS Turn Cloudy as Jody Wilson-Raybould SNC Lavalin Scandal Blows Up by Jamie Gilcig 021419

Justin Trudeau’s SUNNY DAYS Turn Cloudy as Jody Wilson-Raybould SNC Lavalin Scandal Blows Up by Jamie Gilcig 021419

There’s a certain irony about writing this piece on Valentine’s Day as it appears for many their Love for Justin Trudeau has gone stone cold. Most don’t remember that JT was in 3rd place trailing Thomas Mulcair and Stephen Harper at one time in the last election run when he and his team started passing […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Is Thomas Mulcair Right About NDP Votes Turning Green?

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Is Thomas Mulcair Right About NDP Votes Turning Green?

Back on February 4th Tom Mulcair was speculating that some NDP supporters might think the Green Party deserved a second look. It is an interesting thought. Should it happen, it could seriously damage the election chances of the NDP, and it has the potential to damage the Liberals as well. The NDP is in bad shape- […]

Garden Girl – Beginning of the 2019 Garden Dream 020519

This is probably my 10th year playing in the dirt. It all started with a small herb garden one year at a friend’s cottage in the Kawarthas. The next year, the lavender all came back, with the chives, and the mint. This is where I learned that mint cannot be trusted to stay where you […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Optimism About Heart & Stroke Month 020419

The Optimist Creed is very inspiring. I happened to come across a copy of it recently in some papers. We are fortunate in Cornwall to have a local Optimist Club which was chartered in 1948. According to their web site, the late Norm Ross was the chapter President. There were 59 charter members at that […]

Should Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Come Out of the Closet? by Jamie Gilcig 020419

Should Cornwall Mayor  Bernadette Clement Come Out of the Closet? by Jamie Gilcig 020419

There have been multiple allegations that our own Mayor, Bernadette Clement (a fellow former Montreal person), has been in a long term relationship with local lawyer Kimberly Walsh who’s the Chancellor at the local Catholic Diocese and formerly bankrupt lawyer, for many moons. In 2019 gender, religion, sexuality should play zero role in access to […]

Eric Duncan Not a Gimme for Conservative Nod in SD&G by Jamie Gilcig 020119

Eric Duncan Not a Gimme for Conservative Nod in SD&G by Jamie Gilcig 020119

No surprise that Eric Duncan wanted to get into the race quickly to replace the thug and corrupt bully that Guy Lauzon was. As his former #1 Duncan played a huge role for the Big Blue Machine in this region, but that machine has seen a few wheels fall off over the years. Not enough […]

Cornwall Council Fails Again on Garbage Contract by Jamie Gilcig 012919

Cornwall Council Fails Again on Garbage Contract by Jamie Gilcig 012919

What is the point of having a city council or having an issue come to council if it doesn’t have an actual say? More bs answers over the garbage contract. Someone should be fired simply for the fact that there should be language in all RFP’s and tenders that Council has the right to refuse […]

Cornwall Doesn’t Pay Respect on International Holocaust Memorial Day by Jamie Gilcig 012819

Cornwall Doesn’t Pay Respect on International Holocaust Memorial Day by Jamie Gilcig 012819

Cornwall is a city where its sitting MPP, Jim McDonnell caused publicity by at the time comparing the Premier of the province to Nazi’s. There was a vibrant Jewish community in Cornwall, but most have left. Cornwall’s culture besides being a bully culture by nature, can be very intolerant. And yet when we elect a […]

Is Cornwall & SD&G the Child Suicide Capital of Canada? by Jamie Gilcig 012719

Is Cornwall & SD&G the Child Suicide Capital of Canada? by Jamie Gilcig 012719

Did I hear anything about the young girl that took her own life? For the second time in two years I was queried that recently. We don’t like to talk about suicide. The police do not put it on the blotter. Here in Cornwall they refused to give me any numbers or data. After much […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Ice Cream @Cornwall Square, Art & a Tiger Tale!  012119

We lost the Brookdale Mall some years ago. I loved the Miss Cornwall Restaurant and it was also handy to have a movie theatre in the same mall. Recently we lost the Eastcourt Mall which was another nice mall but, like the Brookdale Mall area, there are still lots of nice stores there which people […]

Cornwall Elementary Schools Fail – Only 4 in Top 50% for Province FRASER REPORT 2019

Cornwall Elementary Schools Fail – Only 4 in Top 50% for Province FRASER REPORT 2019

Apparently if you want a good education in Cornwall you need to attend a francophone Catholic school according to the report from the Fraser Institute. What appears when you peruse the numbers is that Cornwall has a higher percentage of special needs students and a higher number of students who scored below average on tests. […]
