We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko – Another Business Closing in Cornwall 112119

Another Business Closing : It’s sad, another loss for workers and bigger unemployment lines. In parallel, Cornwall at least on paper gets another black eye. Perception all around will be that Cornwall cannot keep business afloat. Most of us suspect though that two (2) big box hardware stores in Cornwall was ill conceived at the […]

Cornwall Mayor Clement Hugs Disgraced Educator John McMartin Who Was Charged w Child Sex Assault 111919

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 you too can have a lovely […]

We get Letters – RE Confused Cornwall Naturopathic Funding by PAC & City Council 111419

From a CFN viewer: Here’s my understanding of Heart of the City protocol: 1.       It is always best if you actually own real property before applying; 2.       You then apply for funding (new roof, new doors, new windows, a sign, etc) 3.       You submit application; 4.       Approved….YEAH!!!! 5.       City registers a LIEN on title that EVERYBODY CAN SEE!!!!! YEAH! 6.       Once time line […]

Former CAJ Prez & Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues Publishes McIntosh Personal Email as LTE

I love this town. It’s insane. I swear there’s something in the water, besides residue from Big Ben and lead. CFN has confirmed allegations that the letter to the editor published in the Standard Freeholder from Councilor Claude McIntosh was in fact not a letter to the editor, but in fact an email sent to […]

After Daring Daylight “Attack” on Cornwall Councillor and Mayor… Is Anyone Safe? LTE 111219

Dear Editor, This past week the Cornwall community was stunned by a Facebook post claiming an “attack” had been perpetrated on a Cornwall City Councillor and the Cornwall Mayor. Information in the post suggested that the weapon used in the “attack” may have been a pen, rumoured to have been mightier than a sword; this […]

Confusion & Corruption Erupt from Cornwall Over National Post Spanking & Seaway News Corrects Defamatory Slur of CFN. By Jamie Gilcig 110719

Confusion & Corruption Erupt from Cornwall Over National Post Spanking & Seaway News Corrects Defamatory Slur of CFN. By Jamie Gilcig 110719

We live in a community that sadly discounts truth and integrity. Where terms like “fake news” get bandied around by people that truly have no understanding of news or how news works. Some of whom get elected to office. If you live in a community with little accountability this is how circus behavior occurs. Blow […]

Was Cornwall Council Tricked out of $45K by Sciency-sounding Alt-med Speak Naturopathic Clinic? 110519

Was Cornwall Council Tricked out of $45K by Sciency-sounding Alt-med Speak Naturopathic Clinic? 110519

By Mary Anne Pankhurst There are dangers that can accompany the designation of “Dr.” to people who work in the broad, $ multi-billion marketplace of alternative medicine. Governments and citizens can be tricked, seriously harmed or even killed by the plausible-sounding notions and potions sold by well-spoken, caring practitioners, who use quasi-medical language and props […]

No Treat to Taxpayers in Cornwall as Council Treats Naturopath to $45K Grant. By Mary Anne Pankhurst  110119

Just before Halloween, when it was announced that city council is shelling out $45,000. to sweeten the launch of a local naturopath’s ‘medical clinic,’ some people couldn’t help but wonder if the “treat” is some sort of a trick. Like many communities across Canada, Cornwall has a recruitment plan and is trying to attract doctors. This […]

Could This Be a Solution for Akwesasne?  Property Rights and Prosperity: A Case Study of Westbank First Nation 091719

Cat Hating Mayor Bernadette Clement & Council Vote Against Backyard Wood Fire Pits in Cornwall. By Jamie Gilcig 091019

Thee’s nothing like the crackle of real wood in a chimenea or wood pit. With no real cultural activity in the city other than cover bands and drag nights, weekend fires are a chance for friends and family to enjoy some time together. Some of the best nights I’ve had in this city were around […]

Sunday Bus Debate in Cornwall Ontario – Here are 2 Solutions.  By Jamie Gilcig 090619 #cwlpoli

When I ran for mayor of this odd city one of my platform concepts was to create free busing in the city, seven days per week. The idea was to create a three year pilot project and shake down the province and the Feds. From the numbers I’d crunched it was clear that the status […]

Cornwall Ontario Cat Hating Mayor Bernadette Clement Admits City Has Not Done Ford  Line by Line Financial Review. By Jamie Gilcig  082319

Over 90 per cent of eligible municipalities have participated in the Ford governments line-by-line budget review. Cornwall’s Cat hating mayor Bernadette Clement admitted recently at the AMO conference that the city was not one of those to take the provincial funded exercise. Why wouldn’t she and the city do so? After all we clearly have […]

Reliance Home Comfort Saves the Day After Union Gas Man Can’t Light Pilot.  By Jamie Gilcig 070919

What a long and weird journey. The City of Cornwall in its petty lack of wisdom decided to rip up my downtown street one block up and one block down. One of my neighbors suggested that our block wasn’t done because I live here. I laughed and said that even Maureen Adams couldn’t be that […]

Cornwall Canada Day Fireworks Let Down – MCA Chief Abram Benedict Snubs City After Welcome Sign Gesture 070219

One would think that Grand Chief Abram Benedict would have some love and time for the City of Cornwall? After all the city not only agreed to partner on the Chem Tank location with the MCA, but also recently announced that Mohawk would be added to welcome signs to visitors arriving in Cornwall. Chief Carolyn […]

There Truly is Only 1 Way to Fix Cornwall Ontario BRAMPTON 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 062019

The CBC just did a story on Cornwall that certainly won’t help what ails. A population over 5 years older than the rest of the province is only a part of the tale. The biggest problem is the Mayor herself, her team and her supporters. When CFN started in 2009 she was a councilor. Many […]

The Real Issue of People Retention in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 061119

It’s so charming to see the Seaway News hint at some of the core issues here in the River City. It really is, even if they miss the mark. Whether it’s on purpose for fear of losing support from City Hall or simply a lack of talent only the viewer can decide. Shawna O’Neil recently […]

BREAKING Cornwall City Clerk Manon Levesque Exposes Mayor Clement & Campaign Manager For Overspending – Day Before  Committee Meeting 051419

What a dysfunctional attempt at Machiavellian intrigue is going on in the shadows at City Hall in Cornwall. At root is what appears to be the Mayor and CAO throwing Clerk Manon Levesque under the bus for not issuing a final certificate with spending limits for the municipal election that Mayor Bernadette Clement has admitting […]
