After Meeting Local NDP Candidate I Can’t Vote in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 20, 2015 #CDNPOLI

After Meeting Local NDP Candidate I Can’t Vote in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 20, 2015 #CDNPOLI

This has to be the weirdest Federal election I’ve lived through.    I’m now a hyper partisan voter.  No more party allegiances for me. The problem is that in this race the one leader I’d lean towards I’ve lost all faith in.    Nor do I see that much separating the three main parties. Yes, […]

I Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

I  Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

  While this disturbing, but hotly awesome piece of video is going viral it shows a few things about politics in Canada in 2015. One that the Harperites are extremely unhappy with the Mike Duffy saga; not so much for what Duffy did, but for how it’s played out. Does any reasonable Canadian really believe […]

Liberal MP Candidate Bernadette Clement Off to AMO Conference During Race by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

Liberal MP Candidate Bernadette Clement Off to AMO Conference During Race by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

I was asked to run in the current Federal election as an Independent candidate.  A group had come together, cash in hand, ready to roll, but I decided I couldn’t do it with any integrity. Yes it would be fun to stand on stage and debate Guy & Bernie, to point out their frailties and […]

Clement Fumbles First Big PR Event of Election – Snubbed by Freeholder as Trudeau Visits Highland Games by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario — It’s been a bumpy beginning to the campaign for Cornwall City Councilor Bernadette Clement.    She’s been part of a council this term that has attacked family ice rinks at Christmas and made National news again for getting jiggy with worm and lemonde selling kids. Her riding president, Jamie Labonte, was also […]

Stephen Harper Calls 78 Day Election – Local Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig AUG 2, 2015 #CDNPOLI

Stephen Harper Calls 78 Day Election – Local Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig AUG 2, 2015 #CDNPOLI

If money talks Stephen Harper will have another majority government.   Of course when you make the rules it’s expected that you get good results.    Right now Mr. Harper set the rules that they benefit himself and his party and it just might work. Justin Trudeau, if an election were held today would finish […]

Time for Harper MP Guy Lauzon to Not Run Canada Day in Cornwall & City Ad Boycott of Largest Media June 30, 2015

Time for Harper MP Guy Lauzon to Not Run Canada Day in Cornwall & City Ad Boycott of Largest Media  June 30, 2015

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 […]

Clement Wins Liberal Nomination to Face Lauzon in 2015 Federal Election JUNE 24, 2015 #cdnpoli

Clement Wins Liberal Nomination to Face Lauzon in 2015 Federal Election JUNE 24, 2015 #cdnpoli

Well one thing is becoming clearer.  It really doesn’t appear that Bernadette Clement wants to be a city councilor in Cornwall?  She has attempted to run for upper political office or hope to become a judge each election. Last night the local Liberal riding went through the charade of a nomination race with Ms Clement […]

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

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. It makes sense.  Her council is in disarray and dysfunctional. Lauzon has no debating skills and his track record is full of political opportunity for a capable candidate. […]

Bernadette Clement to Run for Justin Trudeau in 2015 by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 26, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – Bernadette Clement is taking another crack at SD&SG MP Guy Lauzon in the upcoming election.   She has to win the nomination, but unless some surprise candidate drops in she should be facing another round. In the last election she fared poorly finishing far behind Lauzon, and finishing worse than her candidacy […]

No, I am not Running in 2015 for the NDP – Rumor Put to Rest & Election Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 23, 2015

No, I am not Running in 2015 for the NDP – Rumor Put to Rest & Election Thoughts  by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 23, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – My phone started ringing far too early this morning.   It was surreal, but I live in surreal times in a surreal community. I first have to shoot down and dispel the rumor.  I will categorically not be the NDP candidate for this riding in the upcoming Federal election. As much as […]

Cornwall Ontario Budget Committee Bad Theatre by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 14,2015  #cwlpoli #tagca

CORNWALL Ontario –  The Seaway News editor Todd Lihou was all goo goo over praise given to the paper along with The Freeholder and Cornwall Newswatch. He doesn’t  get why they get that praise.  During the budget process, of which Ms Clement is the chair, the city has been given a near free pass. The […]

I Actually Took the Weekend Off by Jamie Gilcig – Deep Thoughts Covered by February Snow

I Actually Took the Weekend Off by Jamie Gilcig – Deep Thoughts Covered by February Snow

CFN – I accidentally took this weekend off.   I  really did.  It was odd.  It was kinda wonderful.  My critters were happy.  My girl friend was happy.   I was even kinda happy, or at least a bit rested. I napped.  I watched Nashville on Netflix.   I chatted with some friends I hadn’t […]

Federal Liberal Bash In Cornwall Ontario a No Show for Domenic LeBlanc by Jamie Gilcig JAN 22, 2015

Federal  Liberal Bash In Cornwall Ontario a No Show for Domenic LeBlanc by Jamie Gilcig JAN 22, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – It was another embarrassing night for the local Federal Liberal riding association under President Jamie Labonte.   The lightly employed prez saw his guest speaker for the spaghetti fund raiser not show up and a crowd of less than 30 attended at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Sadly it marred the announcement of Corey […]

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

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 […]
