Tired of the petty infighting within the local art community the […]

Oh Canada!   Tomorrow is July 1st.  Sadly you won’t see CFN participating in our local event that is about to be rained out (bad karma thanks to Guy) as our MP has hijacked Canada Festivities in our city. Canada Day, above all days, should be inclusive and community building.  Sadly our MP runs the […]

CORNWALL Ontario – Council and management have a chance to show some leadership and do something positive as it’s that time to decide on what to do with our hockey rink contracts.

Liberal Riding Prez Jamie Labonte Joins Local Facebook Hate Group JUNE 15, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – Bernadette Clement is hoping to spring board from Cornwall City Council and run again for the Federal Grits as MP against incumbent Guy Lauzon.

OP ED – Hugo By Elections Are the Rarity – Not the Norm by Jamie Gilcig JUNE 10, 2015

OP ED – Hugo By Elections Are the Rarity – Not the Norm by Jamie Gilcig  JUNE 10, 2015

Hugo, Hugo, Hugo….  The Freeholder editor took on the question of whether to replace an elected official or hold a bye election.  He cited the Brock Frost drama, but omitted to mention the Conflict of Interest lawsuit pending Mayor O’Shaughnessy, and Councilors Hebert and MacDonald. The irony is that some or all of those three […]

Conflict of Interest & Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MAY 28, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – This can be a very very odd town to not only cover news, but deal with how stories are covered. Cornwall Housing threatens to evict seniors and tenants if they put in window air conditioners and we’re the only outlet to cover the story.  Not a peep out of The Freeholder, The […]

Thoughts on a Gloomy Monday Morning in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig MAY 25, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – What a furry week it’s been.  It’s been an odd mix, good and bad, ignorant and nasty with spots of hope and joy. I’ve been getting some missives complaining that I’ve been writing less here on CFN and well…that’s true.   Part of me is glad to be missed, but this life […]

Code of Conduct for Cornwall Ontario City Council an Exercise in Hypocrisy by Jamie Gilcig MAY 12, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario –  Last night was odd and funny.  Cornwall City Council debated a new committee to hash out a Code of Conduct. There is the municipal act, the Council and CAO covenant (a joke document that the Mayor said isn’t even implemented) , and just plain common sense, but this council wants a new […]
