MAY 24, 2020 – It’s odd how people react to COVID 19. There are those that take it seriously, and those that take it so lightly they compare it to a common flu. What we know is that we don’t know enough about this virus yet. We know we don’tContinue Reading

Media can be a bewildering thing.    We are flooded with content through the day.  Local, regional, National, happy stories, tragedies, tales of injustice, and crime. Yet at the end of the day we filter all that down to a few stories on a good day. With 4 utterly pointlessContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Poor Hugo Rodrigues.   I say that in jest.  The former President of the Canadian Association of Journalism spewed a rant over our pathetic Ministry of Culture, Melanie Joly’s, new whatchamacalit thingy where essentially the biggest gloat was Netflix spending $500M creating content in Canada.  Nothing against Netflix,Continue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –  Oddly enough the Standard Freeholder was pretty much silent when this writer took our very hypocritical Mayor and two councilors to court over their gross conflict of interest over the utter joke that was the Benson Vanity University project that the mayor and councillors Elaine Macdonald, andContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Some Cornwallites can be hyper sensitive about any discussion of the reality of our community.    They don’t want to look at failures or miscues, but instead simply raise taxes and hope the issues go away, or simply bully those who point out that our many wannabeeContinue Reading

CORNWALL ONTARIO –  Unlike Hugo “The Hack” Rodrigues at the Freeholder, I’m not afraid to give someone credit when credit is due.  Nor do I not mention their name like a silly silly petty person. His Friday editorial hits the nail on the head. Instead of dealing with the adversityContinue Reading

That Hugo Rodrigues is one funny cat.   When I issued a release stating my intention to run for mayor again in the next election, and would do all possible to rescind the bizarre Harbor Deal in Cornwall Ontario that would give the good people of Akwesasne a half interestContinue Reading

The lady doth protest too much, methinks For a man that to my knowledge has never set foot in Cornwall’s public Art Gallery, Standard Freeholder Editor Hugo Rodrigues sure likes to write about it. He writes about the gallery far more than say…..the shady Harbor Front deal, or how BigContinue Reading

You ever see someone and you know that either they aren’t sleeping, are about to lose their job, or simply aren’t getting enough TLC? Hugo Rodrigues, editor of the Standard Freeholder, has been on the warpath of late.   We here call it “Gilcig very very lite.” The biggest differenceContinue Reading

CORNWALL Ontario – A simple first paragraph of  a news story has set off a fire storm of controversy between South Stormont Mayor Jim Bancroft and his council and the Standard Freeholder. “A need to set aside money for reserves to help pay for future projects is driving a 12.2%Continue Reading

CORNWALL Ontario -About to be former councilor Glen Grant either has to have the biggest cojones on the planet or have some early dementia kicking in as he took his typical Glen Grant offense to someone; in the case Editor of the Standard Freeholder, Hugo Rodrigues. Hugo published Grant’s letter.Continue Reading

CORNWALL Ontario –  It’s been interesting since Hugo Rodrigues was brought into Cornwall to lead the Freeholder.  It really has.  He’s no dummy, but his Machiavellian gobbleyspin might fool some; but not those that have followed politics. Hugo still has yet to ask the Kilger council the money question regardingContinue Reading

CORNWALL Ontario –  I hate fake.  I hate fake flowers. I hate fake stuff.  Mostly I really am not a fan of fake people and fake spin; especially when it’s petty. Yesterday some very silly persons appearing to lack personal integrity tried to showboat with an ALS Ice Bucket challenge.Continue Reading

(photo:facebook) CORNWALL Ontario – Imagine using ALS as a cause to play petty small town politics?   That’s exactly what some media outlets did in Cornwall Ontario today. Many across social media are using the ALS challenge for the right reasons of raising awareness; but many are also using itContinue Reading

CORNWALL Ontario –  For a new comer Hugo Rodrigues, editor of the Standard Freeholder and poobah at the Canadian Association of Journalists is upset.  He’s mad.  He’s talking radio licenses.   He’s not happy that Corus radio shut down their newsroom in Cornwall terminating three jobs. I agree with him.Continue Reading
