We get Letters – RE Confused Cornwall Naturopathic Funding by PAC & City Council 111419

From a CFN viewer: Here’s my understanding of Heart of the City protocol: 1.       It is always best if you actually own real property before applying; 2.       You then apply for funding (new roof, new doors, new windows, a sign, etc) 3.       You submit application; 4.       Approved….YEAH!!!! 5.       City registers a LIEN on title that EVERYBODY CAN SEE!!!!! YEAH! 6.       Once time line […]

Former CAJ Prez & Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues Publishes McIntosh Personal Email as LTE

I love this town. It’s insane. I swear there’s something in the water, besides residue from Big Ben and lead. CFN has confirmed allegations that the letter to the editor published in the Standard Freeholder from Councilor Claude McIntosh was in fact not a letter to the editor, but in fact an email sent to […]

After Daring Daylight “Attack” on Cornwall Councillor and Mayor… Is Anyone Safe? LTE 111219

Dear Editor, This past week the Cornwall community was stunned by a Facebook post claiming an “attack” had been perpetrated on a Cornwall City Councillor and the Cornwall Mayor.

Confusion & Corruption Erupt from Cornwall Over National Post Spanking & Seaway News Corrects Defamatory Slur of CFN. By Jamie Gilcig 110719

We live in a community that sadly discounts truth and integrity. Where terms like “fake news” get bandied around by people that truly have no understanding of news or how news works. Some of whom get elected to office. If you live in a community with little accountability this is how circus behavior occurs. Blow […]

Was Cornwall Council Tricked out of $45K by Sciency-sounding Alt-med Speak Naturopathic Clinic? 110519

Was Cornwall Council Tricked out of $45K by Sciency-sounding Alt-med Speak Naturopathic Clinic? 110519

By Mary Anne Pankhurst There are dangers that can accompany the designation of “Dr.” to people who work in the broad, $ multi-billion marketplace of alternative medicine. Governments and citizens can be tricked, seriously harmed or even killed by the plausible-sounding notions and potions sold by well-spoken, caring practitioners, who use quasi-medical language and props […]

No Treat to Taxpayers in Cornwall as Council Treats Naturopath to $45K Grant. By Mary Anne Pankhurst  110119

Just before Halloween, when it was announced that city council is shelling out $45,000. to sweeten the launch of a local naturopath’s ‘medical clinic,’ some people couldn’t help but wonder if the “treat” is some sort of a trick. Like many communities across Canada, Cornwall has a recruitment plan and is trying to attract doctors. This […]

Yes, it is time to talk Policing in Cornwall. By Jamie Gilcig 092719 #CPS

So the official mouth pieces for the city are floating a piece with the Police Brotherhood, surprise, surprise, wanting more officers hired. They want a discussion. And this writer agrees that there needs to be a discussion, because of the end of the day there are valid concerns and questions. I think it’s safe to […]

Could This Be a Solution for Akwesasne?  Property Rights and Prosperity: A Case Study of Westbank First Nation 091719

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — By establishing individual property rights, the Westbank First Nation in British Columbia’s southern Interior has become entrepreneurial and prosperous, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank. “Westbank has created an environment where band members can create wealth that benefits both the […]

Cornwall Cat Hating Mayor Bernadette Clement Calls Special Council Meeting After Hot Reaction to Wood Fire Pit Burn Ban. By Jamie Gilcig 091319

Flipper Clement blinked fast after huge amounts of public backlash for the utterly unprofessional and backwards circus this past week that saw her council vote 8-3 in favor of banning back yard wood fire pits and chimeneas. In what clearly is a by law issue she and her council continued their rampage of curtailing people’s […]

Cat Hating Mayor Bernadette Clement & Council Vote Against Backyard Wood Fire Pits in Cornwall. By Jamie Gilcig 091019

Thee’s nothing like the crackle of real wood in a chimenea or wood pit. With no real cultural activity in the city other than cover bands and drag nights, weekend fires are a chance for friends and family to enjoy some time together. Some of the best nights I’ve had in this city were around […]

Sunday Bus Debate in Cornwall Ontario – Here are 2 Solutions.  By Jamie Gilcig 090619 #cwlpoli

When I ran for mayor of this odd city one of my platform concepts was to create free busing in the city, seven days per week. The idea was to create a three year pilot project and shake down the province and the Feds. From the numbers I’d crunched it was clear that the status […]

Liberal Hopeful Heather Megill Polls Worse Than STD.  By Jamie Gilcig 082819 #cdnpoli

The local Liberal riding association still has not rolled out a candidate for the October Federal election. It’s an interesting paradigm. With local thug Guy Lauzon retiring his long time flunky, Eric Duncan, is running in his place. Duncan is a very rare out of the closet Conservative candidate. Ironically the buzz has been tepid, […]

Duncan Trotted Out as Token Gay Voice for Scheer in CBC Spin Story on Gay Marriage Comments. By Jamie Gilcig 082819

Most political Canadians know that there’s been a historic glass ceiling for Gay Conservatives with political aspirations. Ask John Baird. Ask Scott Brison who walked over to the Liberals so he could comfortably be who he is. The Liberals rolled out some vintage video of Scheer. It’s politics baby! That’s how it works. To be […]

Cornwall Ontario Cat Hating Mayor Bernadette Clement Admits City Has Not Done Ford  Line by Line Financial Review. By Jamie Gilcig  082319

Over 90 per cent of eligible municipalities have participated in the Ford governments line-by-line budget review. Cornwall’s Cat hating mayor Bernadette Clement admitted recently at the AMO conference that the city was not one of those to take the provincial funded exercise. Why wouldn’t she and the city do so? After all we clearly have […]

Stolen Valour Canada Responds to Terry Birch Story & CFN FILES 082219

The Terry Birch story is becoming a bigger story because of the recent medal award to him and the weak sauce spin the Local Legion has tried to pull to avoid yet another Stolen Valour stain. Clearly this also exposes statements made to other media by his son on his behalf. Mr. Birch was given […]

UCDSB Char Lan Teacher SHERYL FONTAINE Pleads No Contest to 8 Counts After Sleeping in Same Bed as Student 082119

Some interesting facts are creeping out of the Fontaine case. For example, why did she end up teaching in Brockville after what happened at Char Lan? Did the UCDSB pull a Project Truth move and shuffle a party with an issue to a new location? The teacher pled no contest to eight counts of professional […]
