Marijuana Politics & Akwesasne. By Jamie Gilcig 080119

Akwesasne has a long history of weed traffic. While many focus on the illegal tobacco smuggling; Marijuana has long been moved through Akwesasne. In fact when this newspaper covered allegations of Fentanyl laced cannabis they were based in Akwesasne. Frightening enough, the EOHU ran to another media squealing that there wasn’t any. All the local […]

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? “ […]

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 […]

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 […]

UCDSB Secondary Schools Literacy Under 50% in Cornwall FRASER Inst. Rankings for 2017/18 050619

It’s pretty sad and scary to see Cornwall’s Secondary School rankings slide further overall in the province according to the latest Fraser Institute Secondary School rankings. Sad, but not unpredictable as the Primary rankings have been scary too. Both St. Lawrence and CCVS scored less than 50% for testing which according to the Fraser is: […]

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, […]

Overspending Complaint Against Cornwall Mayor Highlights Toxic Bully Culture in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 042419

Overspending Complaint Against Cornwall Mayor Highlights Toxic Bully Culture in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 042419

Cornwall is not a unique community. It however does have a strain of bully culture that is very rare in that it’s embraced by its victims, many times more than its bullies, who really, because of cronyism, aren’t that capable. An example is that when I tried to save our Public Art Gallery and ended […]

SD&SG MPP Jim McDonell Tire Fires Autism Incident in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 031919

I’ve only lived in this area since 2004, but something I’ve noticed is that people are not big on being accountable and owning their messes. I know that’s universal, but it’s especially ugly here, especially top down. When MPP Jim McDonell made a total boob of himself using the term “nazi” regarding the former Liberal […]

McDonell Office Staff Call Police on Autism Protesters in Cornwall Ontario 031219

A very tiny protest led to police officers rushing to MPP Jim McDonell’s office on 2nd Street West in Cornwall this afternoon. It’s alleged that staff hit the actual panic button when a 5 year old wouldn’t stop fidgeting with the blinds in the riding office. No charges have been laid and the CCPS has […]

Dr. Paul & EOHU Playing Politics Over Safety.  Is there a Measles Outbreak in Cornwall Area? 022519

One of the most frustrating thing about dealing with the political corruption in Cornwall is we are kept from basic public resources that our taxes pay for. Specifically the Eastern Ontario Health Unit does not provide or respond to requests from this, the largest newspaper in Cornwall, about important health crisis such as your Fentanyl […]

Yada Yada Yada MPP Randy Hillier Suspended From PC Caucus Over NDP Autism Spat 022020

Randy Hillier is kinda like the Don Cherry of Ontario Politics. You either love his style or you want to strangle him with his suspenders, metaphorically of course. The firebrand MPP got into a match over Autism which has led to the suspension by Premier Doug Ford so his caucus can mull…. My Statement:#onpoli pic.twitter.com/Tab6k5TMOK […]

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. […]

Cornwall Ontario – Justice Deborah Kinsella, who brought a Judge Judy pencil bag to trial,  gagged a case this writer covered.   Not only did she place a gag order on the plaintiff and defendant.  She put the same order on the witnesses.    While there is a reason to gag elements of a case, to […]
