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

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

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 […]

CFN Call for Financial Support Due to Conspiratorial City Boycott in Cornwall Ontario 050319  PT1

Canada. Section 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that everyone has “the freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication.” Sadly in the City of Cornwall and SD&G this is a sad joke. It goes beyond freedom of the press and charter rights. I mean, […]

Overspending Complaint Against Cornwall Mayor Highlights Toxic Bully Culture in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 042419

Overspending Complaint Against Cornwall Mayor Highlights Toxic Bully Culture in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 042419

Cornwall is not a unique community. It however does have a strain of bully culture that is very rare in that it’s embraced by its victims, many times more than its bullies, who really, because of cronyism, aren’t that capable. An example is that when I tried to save our Public Art Gallery and ended […]

Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Must Vacate Seat After Campaign Overspending by 29% by Jamie Gilcig POLL

Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Must Vacate Seat After Campaign Overspending by 29% by Jamie Gilcig   POLL

It’s boggling the level that some people and media outlets will sink too. Bernadette Clement has run in five elections, including two for MP. Campaign spending limits are one of the most common features of any run. In fact Ms Clement has a team around her. Not only is she herself a lawyer, but Etienne […]

United Way Clique Politics Lead to Demise of Bereaved Families Office in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 032719

Ugh, what a horrible and sad story to write. Death is something that shatters so many lives. It’s part of life. None of us escape it. Sadly one of the few services in Cornwall and SD&G announced that it’s shutting down barring an angel of support after its latest fundraiser drew few donors. IN another […]

Clement Council Waste Plan We be an Expensive Disaster by Jamie Gilcig 030819

Ugh snowflakes. Listening to Carolyne Hebert frankly gives me gas. Sadly, we get the government we collectively deserve and a rigged pro labour election has seen her and other snowflakes rubber stamp management budgets and plan. Starting April it appears that we will have a six bag limit in Cornwall per house for Garbage. And […]

Should Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Come Out of the Closet? by Jamie Gilcig 020419

Should Cornwall Mayor  Bernadette Clement Come Out of the Closet? by Jamie Gilcig 020419

There have been multiple allegations that our own Mayor, Bernadette Clement (a fellow former Montreal person), has been in a long term relationship with local lawyer Kimberly Walsh who’s the Chancellor at the local Catholic Diocese and formerly bankrupt lawyer, for many moons. In 2019 gender, religion, sexuality should play zero role in access to […]
