View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – The Silly Season Attack Ads, Fake News & More are Upon Us 091019

The silly season has arrived. Normally I would reserve that for the so called “news reports” we receive over the summer, but there is an election on October 19th. Party war rooms are already hard at work, with coffee drenched staffers pouring out hundreds of Twitter tweets, smack downs and stupid comments daily. Gone are […]

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

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 […]

Eric Duncan Just Won SD&SG as Liberals Fold and Run Heather Megill in Federal Election 090519 #cdnpoli

Boy that debate should be scintillating. Justin Trudeau and his team may know something Canadians don’t? With a tight National race every riding is important. While favored to win; Eric Duncan certainly is no shoe in vote and the riding’s history is such that dropping in a candidate would’ve been a good option. Team Trudeau […]

My Vote is Up for Grabs in the Canadian Federal Election in October. By Jamie Gilcig 090219

It’s funny being a journalist in 2019. My inbox recently started to flood with releases by both the Liberals and Conservatives. Smart. We not only own a large local audience, but are have great pools of viewers in Cities like Ottawa, Toronto, and even Montreal. The internet is content driven and we provide content that […]

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

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 […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Protest Over #lavscam Ethics Committee Shutdown A Tad Much 082119

So, the Liberals shut down the ethics committee- what else is new? Did anyone actually expect the Liberals to allow the opposition to investigate Trudeau’s conduct just weeks before an election? Let us get serious – there isn’t a party out there that would allow this to happen – it would be political suicide. Time […]

Cornwall Legion Shames Itself Again Over Birch Case & CFN Snub. By Jamie Gilcig 082119

This newspaper is generally the only one that will tackle sensitive issues in Cornwall. It’s cost us money, resources, friendships, and even seen myself land in jail on false police charges by a corrupt Police Force that I clearly had not committed. IE, I was charged with making Threatening Phone Calls which a production record […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Has May Thought Through #lavscam Inquiry Bite? 081819

Ever since the Ethics Commissioners Report landed with a bang on Trudeau’s desk, the opposition parties have been hard at work attacking the Liberals over the SNC Lavalin scandal. This is what opposition parties are supposed to do, but with an election so close this issue takes on even more importance. For instance, the Leader […]

Stupid is as Stupid Does – Cornwall Council Votes Themselves a Raise – Cats to be Desexed! 081319

Stupid is as Stupid Does – Cornwall Council Votes Themselves a Raise – Cats to be Desexed! 081319

By Jamie Gilcig As repeatedly shared, the recipe for insanity is to repeat something that doesn’t work. Just a snippet from last night’s council meeting. Our corrupt and rigged council voted themselves a modest raise, a bit this year to catch up with tax changes, and bit more because Elaine MacDonald seems to think sitting […]

Frustrated Contractors Exploring Class Action Against City of Cornwall Ontario for Permit Delays 080219

CFN has been getting calls from area contractors complaining of high priced delays because of what they feel is incompetence and abuse at City Hall in Cornwall Ontario. Every week delay is costing me thousands of dollars…It adds up! Anonymous Contractor They’re explaining that these delays trickle down to service providers. At the end of […]

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 […]

64 Sudden Deaths in Cornwall & SD&G So Far This Year JULY 25, 2019 #OPP #CPS

One of the issues that this newspaper has been fighting for has been proper police and emergency service disclosure. While the police don’t give out every call for service; some forces, like in Kingston, give a breakdown. The SD&G OPP do that on occasion, but the Cornwall Police refuse. That means that we media are […]
