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

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

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 […]

Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy Confronted at Civic Complex Debate by Julie Johnston  101118

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 about the justification of the approximately […]

It’s Time to Stop Giving the Cornwall Colts a Free Ride by Jamie Gilcig 100418

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 that have far too much empty […]

NOTWITHSTANDING THIS, NOTWITHSTANDING THAT by Warren Kinsella 091818

Toronto Ontario – Show of hands: how many of you expected the Ontario government to lose the constitutional challenge of its Bill 5, which aimed to reduce the size of Toronto’s city council? No one? Exactly. No one – no one who has been paying attention, at least – expected Doug Ford’s government to lose. Municipalities […]

Whistle-blower Forum by Diane Shay – 2018 & 2014 Election Promises  Broken Part 2

I have been searching online for major accomplishments of this Council and came up short other than ongoing significant tax increases over the past 10 years and building the Benson Centre. Tax payers simply cannot afford to leave this Council in power. Each and every day city employees work to meet the needs of taxpayers. […]

Ford Gov’t Goes Full Poutine & Invokes Not Withstanding Act Over Toronto Council Decision 091018

Ford Gov’t Goes Full Poutine & Invokes Not Withstanding Act Over Toronto Council Decision 091018

Cornwall Ontario – Shock and Awe as an Ontario Conservative government takes a page out of Quebec politics to chop up Toronto City Council. The only issue this writer has are the optics.  Surely there are other councils, like the one here in Cornwall which are not serving the public equitably. Many in the public […]

Is Democracy Dead in Cornwall Ontario? By Jamie Gilcig 082818

Is Democracy Dead in Cornwall Ontario?  By Jamie Gilcig 082818

Cornwall Ontario – Democracy dies when people don’t tend to it.  That means voting. It means being active more than just at elections. It means becoming aware to some degree of what the monkeys at City Hall get up to.   I mean we have a city clerk that can’t even get candidate contact information correct […]

Bernadette Clement Lies to the Public as She Runs for Mayor by Jamie Gilcig 082318

Cornwall Ontario –  Lawyers can be a smart bunch, cagey too.   It’s rare to get them “on the record” unless they want to be on the record which is why it’s so much fun to get them to chat off the record when the opportunity arises. “Flipper is as good a politician as she is […]

The Whistle-blower Forum by Diane Shay –  Election Promises Broken re:  Transparency, Integrity & Accountability in Cornwall

“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 another four years? This question will […]

2018 Cornwall Election Candidate Meeting Cancelled for Thursday August 9, 2018

2018 Cornwall Election Candidate Meeting Cancelled for Thursday August 9, 2018

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 have been open to the public. […]

Seniors Leaving Cornwall Too –  Cost of Living Corruption Lack of Culture Cited 080718

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was chatting with a friend who’s nearly 80 and she’s planning to sell her home and leave Cornwall.   She shared a few more of her friends were leaving too. Another friend in her 40’s shared that she’s moving to Ottawa and then shares that she has about a half dozen […]
