This council reflects our mayor perfectly. Sloppy, unthinking, feebly emotional, and all veneer with little to no substance, leadership, or remote understanding of her and their roles on council. It just goes to show that if you sell your soul to Labour and agree to rubber stamp their demands youContinue Reading

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.

Cornwall Ontario – Last night’s debate involving the four Mayoral candidates revealed true colours and where “THEIR” priorities are.

Cornwall Ontario – One wonders what Cornwall CAO Maureen Adams has to hide by not sending releases to the largest newspaper in the city?  From excerpts published in other media  it certainly doesn’t look highly important?  In fact striking CUPE workers and organizers seemed incensed at the nature of theContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –  Running for office isn’t the only way to help a community.  For many it’s a vain ego thing.  I just turned down a new provincial party looking for a local candidate.   Looking around the table here in Council there really are only 1 or 2 that trulyContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –  Call it a Million Dollar Solution!    Even CUPE knows that Cornwall is in a budget crisis, but sometimes you need dramatic solutions to dramatic problems. You can’t blame city workers and their union for trying to improve their lot.  It’s part of what they do. TheContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –   Our city councilor here in Cornwall, Claude McIntosh,  actually once wrote about me having to do all the jobs here at CFN as though it were something to be embarrassed about or amateur.   Of course he’s participated on a City Council that boycotts this newspaper and inContinue Reading
