Election Leadership Debate 2019 : Canada Loses.  By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli

What an utter farce this election has been. The format for what should’ve been the “Big” debate was a mess. The format blew chunks. Canadians needed and some actually wanted to hear from the candidates, but the Consortium of media outlets that put this together seemed more focused on gender politics than Canadian politics. If […]

Impotent Andrew Scheer Fumbling as Liberals Flirt with Majority Win. By Jamie Gilcig #CDNPOLI 100719

Impotent Andrew Scheer Fumbling as Liberals Flirt with Majority Win.  By Jamie Gilcig  #CDNPOLI 100719

The election that nobody seems to care about trundles on. This will be an historic loss if Andrew Scheer gives The Trudeau Liberals a majority win. With a history of broken election promises and gross hypocrisy the Conservatives simply have failed to deliver a strong game with much of the blame landing on Mr. Scheer. […]

Education Action & Strike Call Are Reasons to Look @ the Future of Education in Ontario.  By Jamie Gilcig 100519 #ONPOLI

This writer was shocked this week and it takes a lot to shock someone as jaded as myself. Number 7. Do not administer medication? Really? Social media was littered with reports of children being forced to eat lunch at their desks with some allegations of them having to sit on the hall floors and eat. […]

Yes, it is time to talk Policing in Cornwall. By Jamie Gilcig 092719 #CPS

Yes, it is time to talk Policing in Cornwall. By Jamie Gilcig 092719 #CPS

So the official mouth pieces for the city are floating a piece with the Police Brotherhood, surprise, surprise, wanting more officers hired. They want a discussion. And this writer agrees that there needs to be a discussion, because of the end of the day there are valid concerns and questions. I think it’s safe to […]

Conrad Black : Trudeau is a Hypocrite & Weak Leaders 092319

Conrad Black : Trudeau is a Hypocrite & Weak Leaders 092319

If the government generally was playing it straight and not trying to gain re-election by defaming its opponents, Trudeau could have expressed regret, claimed he’d learned and moved on The election campaign to date has been an exercise in idiocy and cowardice. It is obviously embarrassing for Justin Trudeau to have had to admit to […]

Prime Minister Doug Ford in 2023 or Sooner? By Jamie Gilcig 091219 #cdnpoli

Prime Minister Doug Ford in 2023 or Sooner?  By Jamie Gilcig 091219 #cdnpoli

Doug Ford is in the cat seat right now. With an expected Trudeau Minority win he just has to glide through this election without tipping the pot. While he’s come on hard early in his Ontario mandate, he’s also shown a willingness to reconsider positions and govern the province, and not just his party, which […]

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 […]

My Vote is Up for Grabs in the Canadian Federal Election in October. By Jamie Gilcig 090219

It’s funny being a journalist in 2019. My inbox recently started to flood with releases by both the Liberals and Conservatives. Smart. We not only own a large local audience, but are have great pools of viewers in Cities like Ottawa, Toronto, and even Montreal. The internet is content driven and we provide content that […]

Cornwall Legion Shames Itself Again Over Birch Case & CFN Snub. By Jamie Gilcig 082119

Cornwall Legion Shames Itself Again Over Birch Case & CFN Snub. By Jamie Gilcig 082119

This newspaper is generally the only one that will tackle sensitive issues in Cornwall. It’s cost us money, resources, friendships, and even seen myself land in jail on false police charges by a corrupt Police Force that I clearly had not committed. IE, I was charged with making Threatening Phone Calls which a production record […]

Did the Char Lan Sex Abuse Case Fall Through the Cracks? By Jamie Gilcig 071719 #OPP #UCDSB

Did the Char Lan Sex Abuse Case Fall Through the Cracks? By Jamie Gilcig 071719 #OPP #UCDSB

In our earlier story exposing the incident of SHERYL FONTAINE, a Soccer Coach at Char Lan and a student. LINK more questions begged to be answered than information disclosed? After all, the incident allegedly occurred nearly FIVE years ago with no mention by the OPP or other media. In a small town that’s a long […]

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped? By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped?   By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

So I’m reading coverage of a special group think with the assistance from someone from Kingston. They came up with five priorities. The Waterfront, more population, better housing, Economic Development, and Environmental Sustainability (the last of which I’m sure they farted out because they couldn’t’ come up with a real fifth. ) Most of this […]

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 […]

Was Pellet Gate in Cornwall Really an Umbrella in a Backpack? by Jamie Gilcig 050719

Was Pellet Gate in Cornwall Really an Umbrella in a Backpack? by Jamie Gilcig  050719

Startling communications allege that an event that caused city wide panic and locked down schools and hospitals in January was essentially gross mismanagement by #CCPS Chief Danny Aikman and Deputy Chief Shawna Spowart. The allegations from multiple sources claim that the incident was over an UMBRELLA in a back pack. The original incident, which we […]

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 […]

Justin Trudeau Legal #lavscam Bluff Called by Andrew Scheer by Jamie Gilcig 040719

Justin Trudeau Legal #lavscam Bluff Called by Andrew Scheer by Jamie Gilcig 040719

Yes, I’d love to play poker with our Prime Minister any day. Although much younger, I probably would be fine boxing a round or two with him as well because my grandfather, who was a prize fighter in the 1929’s, when you only got paid if you won, taught me about things like this. Apparently […]

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 […]

Trudeau Budget Looks like Pre Cursor to SNAP Election Call. by Jamie Gilcig 032019

It’s amazing how politics work. There are the kool aid drinkers, the partisans, and then the slim amount of folk that will actually listen and read what is being said before making a decision where to park their vote. With Justin Trudeau fighting for his political life because of the SNC Lavalin scandal or #lavscam […]
