Elaine MacDonald Leads Hypocrisy Charge in Cornwall Over GSDL RFP by Jamie Gilcig

It’s very rare that this Cornwall Council does the right thing.  That’s why it was pleasantly odd to see them do exactly that over the Glen Stor Dun Lodge Pharmacy RFP as I wrote about it after that fateful Monday evening.  LINK In that piece I posted this question: Monday night’s meeting can be the […]

Council to Waste $47,940 + HST on Arts Centre Feasibility Study by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – Tonight council will most likely be giving out nearly $50K to an architectural firm for a feasibility study to create an arts centre in Cornwall or as many in our city are calling it, an utter waste of tax dollars.

Cornwall Not Buying Local Again – GSDL Pharmacy RFP May Impact Medical Arts Jobs

Cornwall Not Buying Local Again – GSDL Pharmacy RFP May Impact Medical Arts Jobs

The buck stops at the Mayor as he is the leader.   Council dictates policy which in a perfect world is enacted by management.   Then again sometimes management dictates to a weak and ignorant council lacking vision, leadership, and direction. For the second term in a row Council has given the contract for Pharmacy […]

City Code of Conduct Exercise a Total Toothless Tiger by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 26, 2015

So I just finished reading the document that Mayor O’Shaughnessy & CAO Norm Levac are trying to ram though a all too often gullible public.  Remember, this is the city that elected Brock Frost. The principle of a Code of Conduct is of course a wonderful thing other than the thought that if you have […]

It’s Time For Artists To Step Up in Cornwall Ontario as TAG FUNDING Still in Crisis by Jamie Gilcig JULY 11, 2015

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 […]
