Time for Doug Ford to Step Up & Deal with Randy Hillier & Rod Phillips.  By Jamie Gilcig

DECEMBER 30, 2020 – Premier Doug Ford likes to portray himself as a “friend”. While he’s done some good work during Covid, he has failed the province dramatically by simply not putting the right people in charge to deal with the pandemic. Chiefly, his Minister of Health, Christine Elliot. Covid-19 emergency laws and guidelines are […]

Eastern Ontario & Ottawa Now in Orange Zone After Ford Presser – Still no Mandatory Mask Wearing. By Jamie Gilcig

NOVEMBER 13, 2020 – It’s like telling a kid that if they don’t do what you tell them ABSOLUTELY nothing will be done to them. A stern looking Premier Ford and a scared in the headlights Christine Elliot finished their live press conference. There was much rending of garments, warnings, and stern verbiage, but no […]

Premier Ford We’re Not Ready for Stage 3. By Jamie Gilcig

JULY 14, 2020 – As I sit here I fear for my community. I fear that our leadership is failing again by not clearly mandating the wearing of masks and not enforcing what laws and rules are in place. That’s not a mix for success and it doesn’t make sense to move forward until we […]

More Questions Than Answers Left by EOHU Regarding Cornwall Food Basics COVID 19 Confirmed Worker PETITION to Remove PAUL Roumeliotis. By Jamie Gilcig

APRIL 20, 2020 – It’s boggling that an entity that is supposed to serve public health is boycotting this newspaper and refusing to release info that supposedly is meant to save and protect lives.

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?

Nick Seebruch Isn’t the Brightest Fellow : FORD BEER     @ Corner Stores by Jamie Gilcig 060919

Nick Seebruch of the Seaway News isn’t the brightest journalist. He takes stands on issues like this while staying silent on important local issues. I get it. When you tell simple truths about bad people doing bad things you end up with less ads in your newspaper. For someone like Nick, possibly being replaced, with […]

Cornwall Ontario –  All governments cannot be all things to all people.  Amanda Simard, a new MPP in Glengarry Prescott Russell who has some experience as a municipal councilor and was a Senate  page clearly either doesn’t understand politics or is playing amateur hissyfit politics.
