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 thatContinue Reading

It’s boggling the level that some people and media outlets will sink too. Bernadette Clement has run in five elections, including two for MP. Campaign spending limits are one of the most common features of any run. In fact Ms Clement has a team around her. Not only is sheContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Unlike Cornwall’s vote both South Stormont and South Glengarry voters sent a message that change was desired; chiefly fiscal change.   In South Stormont this is chiefly ironic as Cornwall CAO Maureen Adams and many Sunshine list decision makers in Cornwall reside in the township.   IE, they don’tContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –  It was a flawed election Monday night.   Clearly there was an issue with the electronic voting as the city’s website kept flashing to zero votes and then trickling in amounts. Electronic voting is hinky at best.   Stories have been done about kids hacking the system. For theContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –   They say in 12 Step that you can’t truly start your recovery until you hit rock bottom. This 2018 election normally would be that rock bottom.  Time will tell if it’s so. A corrupt city management and council have essentially rigged the election.   All you have toContinue Reading

Picking the lesser evil! Four years ago, I voted for Leslie O’Shaughnessy because Bob Kilger allowed the city to crucify whistleblowers and chose to protect the abusers instead! So I chose the lesser evil! My gut at the time knew that O’Shaughnessy would be no different but I took theContinue Reading

Cornwall politics are essentially shameless, corrupt, and frankly the government we collectively deserve. No other issue highlights this better than the BMO farcical art centre hustle. Essentially for over 30 years the city doled out a very very meagre amount of money to sustain the charity that was our PublicContinue Reading

Please excuse the edits.  It is the city of Cornwall that educated me. They did not do a very good job on the English. Please read the additions. It is to laugh. There is not a Mayor candidate in this election that is worth supporting. The councilors are not any better.Continue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – CFN has over 1 million human pageviews monthly.   It’s been that way for a awhile, but what quite a few people, and sadly many in the political and business realms locally, don’t get is that whether they like this newspaper, its publisher, or writers, and content isContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Last night’s meet, greet, and debate revealed that politicians do lie and I and Council candidate Brent Charles was surprised to finally get an honest answer from Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy regarding his failures and lies broken promises as a mayor. During the meet and greet, O’Shaughnessy was asked aboutContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Geez there are fire sales and bad deals,  and there is the sweetheart deal that the City of Cornwall is giving the Cornwall Colts for some reason?   I mean this is worse than a Marc Bergevin trade. At issue is that the city has two facilities thatContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Last night’s debate involving the four Mayoral candidates revealed true colours and where “THEIR” priorities are. Bernadette continues to show her preference on an art center yet cries about the “poor” in the same breath. The tactic of repeating and repeating the same words like “infrastructure”,  “art center,”Continue Reading

  Cornwall Ontario – October 22, 2018 is almost here. Time to reflect before casting that vote. In the words of Albert Einstein: “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil but because of those who look on and do nothing” …which continues to reflectContinue Reading

“The world will not be destroyed by evil but by those who watch without doing anything” Albert Einstein. Well it’s that time again to renew councils contracts through our election process. When one is hired to do a specific job and fails miserably should they get their contracts extended anotherContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –  What an odd Municipal election this is.   Almost no media coverage to date and an invite for an evening for council and mayoralty candidates to meet at the Knights of Columbus Hall for tonight was cancelled due to several candidates refusing to attend. The meeting would haveContinue Reading
