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

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

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 […]

Fighting Lies & Bullying on Anti Bullying Day – Clarifying the Randy Sauve Defamation Lawsuit. 022620

As some know in this world sometimes you have to hold people accountable. Thus I issued defamation lawsuits against Randy Sauve & UCDSB teacher Tracy Champagne for publishing that I write “Fake” or “Fabricated” news. To be clear, any delays in the Randy Sauve lawsuit are directly a responsibility of the lack of attention Randy […]

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 […]

NAVCAN in Cornwall to Have 11 AM Employee Meeting Over COVID 19 Coronavirus Scare 021820

What utter insanity filled with lies and misinformation. This writer feels for all the workers who are at NAV wondering what the heck is going to happen. Some have shared they have been told that they won’t be forced to come into work, but wouldn’t get paid. We’re waiting to hear of the developments from […]

Lack of Local Leadership Led to Coronavirus Victims @ NAV Can.  NAV knew for over a Week Without Telling Cornwall! By Jamie Gilcig 021720

EDITORIAL: They say you get the government you deserve and that has played out in spades sadly here in Cornwall. While MP Eric Duncan and Mayor Bernadette Clement were jigging it up at Mamma Mia Saturday night the Federal government issued a release that Princess Diamond was going to dump their poor Canadian passengers at […]

Work Starts @ Nav Can in Cornwall in Preparation for 250+  Coronavirus COVID 19 as Employees Fear for Safety 021720

By Joseph Kay – Special Contributor: And so it begins… Cornwall’s Nav Centre has gone viral (in the news at least) as it stages its own mini “Come From Away”… amid “forced labour” for unrepresented employees. Starting early this morning crews began a cleanup of the arrival point for persons being placed into quarantine. The […]

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. […]

We Get Letters :  Michael Labelle Says Goodbye Cornwall, Not Been Nice 121319

Editor’s Note. Mike was born in Cornwall. Went off for his career, and attempted to retire to Cornwall having purchased a home in Riverdale. Hi Jamie. I thought I should make it official for you. I am no longer a resident of Cornwall. Before I trash them I should give the thumbs up. 1/ the […]

We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko on Calibration of Smart Meters & Cornwall Water Meters 120519

We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko on Calibration of Smart Meters & Cornwall Water Meters 120519

Water Meters: OK what makes Cornwall so unique to have one of the highest water consumption per capita in all of Canada (ref.: Based on the city’s research, people across Canada use about 250 liters of water per person per day while in Cornwall it’s about 450 liters.”). How was this figured obtained – was […]

Cornwall Residential Water Meters A Desperate Cash Grab. By Jamie Gilcig #cwlpoli 120519

Cornwall Residential Water Meters A Desperate Cash Grab.  By Jamie Gilcig #cwlpoli 120519

The most stunning thing about Cornwall Politics is that the sheep are stunningly silent until it’s too late. Facing an anticipated 7% tax rate hike, city management and council have been flirting and floating having “Smart Water Meters” for the approximately 16,000 buildings in Cornwall. The basic argument for such meters is usually conservation. Numbers […]

Scotia Bank Call Centre Folds More Job Decay in Cornwall Ontario. By Jamie Gilcig 112219

Scores, Lowe’s, and now the Scotia Bank call centre. It’s becoming clear that Cornwall Ontario simply isn’t a place to succeed in business. Normally closures come after Christmas, but there are starting to flood before. A weak employee pool, corrupt and incompetent City Hall, scandals, high electrical rates, and runaway taxes simply are not good […]

We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko – Another Business Closing in Cornwall 112119

Another Business Closing : It’s sad, another loss for workers and bigger unemployment lines. In parallel, Cornwall at least on paper gets another black eye. Perception all around will be that Cornwall cannot keep business afloat. Most of us suspect though that two (2) big box hardware stores in Cornwall was ill conceived at the […]

Cornwall Mayor Clement Hugs Disgraced Educator John McMartin Who Was Charged w Child Sex Assault 111919

This council reflects our mayor perfectly. Sloppy, unthinking, feebly emotional, and all veneer with little to no substance, leadership, or remote understanding of her and their roles on council. It just goes to show that if you sell your soul to Labour and agree to rubber stamp their demands you too can have a lovely […]
