Thoughts on Council Raises & Police Checks for Cornwall Ontario Council by Jamie Gilcig – DEC 18, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – I’m going to pay a rare compliment to our city council.   Maybe rare shouldn’t be the term.   Because of the weirdness that was the Kilger council of the last term there was very little to compliment our elected officials about.  Nearly half of our current council are from that last […]

Election Blog – Jamie Gilcig – Mayor – Cornwall Ontario – Converting Our Library Into An Arts Centre

The Arts are something we roll out every election in Cornwall.   These last few years have seen them politicized with Elaine MacDonald bullying her way through them with the use of a few Trillium grants.
