I’m not big on veneers.    Politicians live by them.   I’d rather be liked, or disliked, for whom I am than who I want people to see me as. There’s been a certain irony to watch the hate and stupidity roll here in Cornwall of late. We have the Bill & Todd show where […]

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.

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

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.
