#CCPS Taze Mentally Ill Man Who had DROPPED Weapons in Cornwall – NO SIU Report by Jamie Gilcig 091218

Cornwall Ontario –  For several years now this newspaper has struggled with the CCPS for more transparency and more disclosure. Unlike forces in Kingston they refuse to give out a breakdown of calls of service.  They begrudgingly now give out a total of calls for the day although there are days they don’t report any […]

Wanna Buy a Newspaper? Turn Key Cornwall Regional Eyeballs – CFN FOR SALE

Wanna Buy a Newspaper?  Turn Key Cornwall Regional Eyeballs – CFN FOR SALE

February will be the tenth anniversary of this newspaper.   That’s a long time and a lot of hard work. It’s resulted in over 1 million human pageviews monthly.      LINK Sadly, CFN never became the creative fount of positivity I envisioned when I started this venture in February of 2009.   You can’t do creative marketing […]

Ford Gov’t Focusing more on Math than Sex Ed in Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 082918

Cornwall Ontario – The Ford government just issued a release outlining the failings of our educational system which seemed to focus more on Sex Ed than Math.   It seems that many would have our education system replace parenthood (although in far too many circumstances you can’t blame them) than simply teach our kids the importance […]

T Storm ALERT for the Cornwall Ontario Area – Possible Tornadoes in Area 082918

Cornwall Ontario – Eastern Ontario is about to get a whupping from Mother Nature including TORNADO warnings in the Newington and Winchester areas nearby. Please use caution and do not wear tin foil hats until the all clear is given or the zappy thing ports you safely to Nurbital. We will update as silly people […]

#CCPS Police Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 081118

Cornwall Ontario – For many of us journalists we know no hours.   We can be working days straight at a time.  We can work at odd hours.  Many of us have no set schedules. CFN does not have public offices.  When I need to meet someone we do it in public spaces.  There are security […]

2018 Cornwall Election Candidate Meeting Cancelled for Thursday August 9, 2018

2018 Cornwall Election Candidate Meeting Cancelled for Thursday August 9, 2018

Cornwall Ontario –  What an odd Municipal election this is.   Almost no media coverage to date and an invite for an evening for council and mayoralty candidates to meet at the Knights of Columbus Hall for tonight was cancelled due to several candidates refusing to attend. The meeting would have been open to the public. […]

Autism Parents Angry @ Cornwall Square as Mom Escorted Off By Security for Loud Child Complaint 080818

Cornwall Ontario – You’d think as empty as Cornwall Square usually is they’d be happy to have anyone shopping, but sadly an incident occurred involving a mom of an autistic boy. Apparently a security guard took issue with loud noises from the child and not only asked them to leave, but walked with them into […]

Seniors Leaving Cornwall Too –  Cost of Living Corruption Lack of Culture Cited 080718

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was chatting with a friend who’s nearly 80 and she’s planning to sell her home and leave Cornwall.   She shared a few more of her friends were leaving too. Another friend in her 40’s shared that she’s moving to Ottawa and then shares that she has about a half dozen […]

Open Letter to Ontario Premier Doug Ford Regarding MinComs and Media in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 080318

Dear Doug, I sit here in my office of my struggling Independent media outlet.   An outlet that was fair and friendly with you during the election. Even though we’re the largest in our market with large audiences in other key Ontario markets we received zero advertising from your campaign or the PC party during the […]

Why I Didn’t Run for Mayor or Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072818

Why I Didn’t Run for Mayor or Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 072818

Cornwall Ontario –   From offers of hand made suits  by Montreal tailors and volunteers it was very tempting to run for office in Cornwall this election. When I ran in 2014 I had one clear objective which I was very proud of the results contrary to what Hugo Rodrigues likes to spew.    I wanted […]

Maurice Dupelle & Bad Politics Leave Agape Food Bank on the Brink in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 071618

Maurice Dupelle & Bad Politics Leave Agape Food Bank on the Brink in Cornwall Ontario – by Jamie Gilcig 071618

Cornwall Ontario –  One of the biggest problems in Cornwall is the utter failure of charities due to really bad politics. The United Way for example boycotts this newspaper.  They also kept missing their funding targets so they no longer have them.  Instead of acting like a responsible charity and pursue their mandate they fail […]

So After a Busy Weekend of Listening Do You Want Me to Run? Election 2018 & Brampton 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 071618

So After a Busy Weekend of Listening Do You Want Me to Run? Election 2018 & Brampton 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 071618

Cornwall Ontario –   It’s really weird getting stopped in public places and asked to talk about politics and in particular my running for office again this 2018 election. The most common theme I heard over the weekend is that this town would putrefy with David Murphy as mayor.  I can’t say I disagree with that […]

Hugo Doesn’t Seem to Understand Why the Poor Election Candidate Turnout for Cornwall? By Jamie Gilcig 071418

Hugo Doesn’t Seem to Understand Why the Poor Election Candidate Turnout for Cornwall?  By Jamie Gilcig 071418

Cornwall Ontario –  So I was having a beverage with a gentleman I was expecting to run for mayor of Cornwall Ontario.   He was bright, successful, connected to the community and had the gift of gab.   He was clearly far superior to the only person to put their name forth so far, one David Murphy, […]

Over 200 Million Reasons To Worry About the Cornwall Waterfront by Jamie Gilcig 071318

Over 200 Million Reasons To Worry About the Cornwall Waterfront by Jamie Gilcig 071318

Cornwall Ontario – The problem with a lack of community leadership is that issues can bite you in the bum before you realize what hit you.  Corruption and political impotence do not lead to a successful community. While the ol rumours and allegations about a certain former mayor’s love for a good game of cards […]

Death of Journalists in MD Shooting Highlights Needs of Free Press by Jamie Gilcig 062918

Cornwall Ontario –   This has been a very traumatizing week for a lot of people.   Being  a mere mortal myself we all only have so much endurance. While getting ready to escape Cornwall to celebrate the Strawberry Moon at a very dear friends joint, the news hit of the five journalists shot dead in Maryland.  […]

Bank of Montreal Arts Centre in Cornwall Will be an Election Issue by Jamie Gilcig 062718

Bank of Montreal Arts Centre in Cornwall Will be an Election Issue by Jamie Gilcig 062718

Cornwall Ontario – What a weird group around the council table Cornwall has.    It’s odd, as though some on council have brain function issues….or simply are trying to copy Brockville. Brockville’s art centre renovated an old theatre; with much public money, into a stunning and lovely facility that is a gem and attraction for […]
