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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped? By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped?   By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

So I’m reading coverage of a special group think with the assistance from someone from Kingston. They came up with five priorities. The Waterfront, more population, better housing, Economic Development, and Environmental Sustainability (the last of which I’m sure they farted out because they couldn’t’ come up with a real fifth. ) Most of this […]

Charity Starts @ Home for Agape Food Bank Chair & Cornwall City Councillor Maurice Dupelle  020819

Calls, emails, and social media messages to Cornwall City Councilor Maurice Dupelle, who’s also the chair of the Agape, have gone unanswered as of press time. Johanne Couture, the Agape Executive Director responded with a nasty “NO COMMENT” regarding allegations that Mr. Dupelle has essentially hired several family members to work at the local food […]

Should Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Come Out of the Closet? by Jamie Gilcig 020419

Should Cornwall Mayor  Bernadette Clement Come Out of the Closet? by Jamie Gilcig 020419

There have been multiple allegations that our own Mayor, Bernadette Clement (a fellow former Montreal person), has been in a long term relationship with local lawyer Kimberly Walsh who’s the Chancellor at the local Catholic Diocese and formerly bankrupt lawyer, for many moons. In 2019 gender, religion, sexuality should play zero role in access to […]

Cornwall Council Fails Again on Garbage Contract by Jamie Gilcig 012919

Cornwall Council Fails Again on Garbage Contract by Jamie Gilcig 012919

What is the point of having a city council or having an issue come to council if it doesn’t have an actual say? More bs answers over the garbage contract. Someone should be fired simply for the fact that there should be language in all RFP’s and tenders that Council has the right to refuse […]

Trashy Meeting of Cornwall City Council Turns Ugly Over Garbage Recycling Contract 011619

Trashy Meeting of Cornwall City Council Turns Ugly Over Garbage Recycling Contract 011619

Leave it to Cornwall City Management to find ways to turn the optics ugly when it comes to contracts and RFPs. Just like the GSDL Pharmacy contract where it appeared that Medical Arts Pharmacy was screwed over, now long time service provider HGC is fighting for its survival locally. For the record I’m happy for […]

Clement Tax Council Jacks Water Rates 4.07% in Cornwall By Jamie Gilcig 120818

Cornwall Ontario –  And so it starts.   As predicted the latest council, gerrymandered by local unions and kool aid drinkers saw the first bite into them with Council barely responding to the water rates requested by City Management going up 4.07% This writer doesn’t dispute that the raise is needed.    Political neglect and management […]

It’s Time for Maureen Adams to Give up on Cornwall MPAC Lawsuit by Jamie Gilcig 110718

Cornwall Ontario –  Sometimes adults make mistakes.   There is an old saying….   The difference between winners and losers is how they deal with adversity. Maureen Adams was the city’s Chief Financial Officer before becoming its CAO.  Under her leadership, or lack thereof, the city’s finances have crumbled.   She’s part of a circle jerk between […]

The Cornwall Election That Really Wasn’t.  By Jamie Gilcig 221018

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 to do is look at who […]

Picking the Lesser Evil for the Cornwall Ontario 2018 Election by Julie Johnston 101918

Picking the Lesser Evil for the Cornwall Ontario 2018 Election by Julie Johnston 101918

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 the chance that maybe, just maybe, […]

Any Cornwall Candidate that Supports the BMO Arts Centre Doesn’t Deserve Your Vote by Jamie Gilcig 101818

Any Cornwall Candidate that Supports the BMO Arts Centre Doesn’t Deserve Your Vote by Jamie Gilcig 101818

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 Public Art Gallery.  Run by fumble […]

Cornwall Resident Puts Riverdale House Up for Sale After Election Candidate Disgust LTE 101718

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. They are totally out of […]

Wendy the Weed Witch – Which Strains of Marijuana Describes City Councilors 101418

It’s election time and campaigning has begun. If you are anxious and nauseous about it, you are not alone. Four years truly pass quickly yet people forget the previous campaign only to be told the exact same lie four years later. One has to ask what are these people smoking? I can tell you what […]

If You Don’t See Your Election Candidate Ad on CFN Don’t Vote for Them by Jamie Gilcig 101218

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 is that the majority of the […]
