Author: Ashley Munson Don’t look now, but Memorial Cup fever is spreading across Canada with Halifax, Nova Scotia serving as the host and epicenter of the junior hockey world. The host Halifax Mooseheads (Quebec Major Junior Hockey League), Guelph Storm (Ontario Hockey League), Rouyn-Noranda Huskies (QMJHL) and Prince Albert RaidersContinue Reading

I was not completely anonymous when I came forward in December 2010 describing the consequences of a micromanager at the Glen-Stor-Dun Lodge. One councillor was aware a letter was sent to city council. This is how we found out the severity of censorship (obstruction of justice) within the city asContinue Reading

“The world will not be destroyed by evil but by those who watch without doing anything” Albert Einstein. Well it’s that time again to renew councils contracts through our election process. When one is hired to do a specific job and fails miserably should they get their contracts extended anotherContinue Reading

  “Make up your mind that no matter what comes your way, no matter how unfair, you will do more than simply survive.  You will thrive in-spite of it.”  Joel Osteen. All retaliation impacts many employees and is a serious issue for organizations not to mention very difficult to resolve.Continue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – When I ran for Mayor of Cornwall in 2014 I was really clear about our number one issue, taxes. I had a clear plan that would cut taxes by 5%.   Now knowing the lay of the land; my false police charges, still not held accountable for byContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –  There are many people that you meet who at first seem to be more than they really are. Etienne St. Aubin is one of those.    He recently ran a piece in the Freeholder trying to whitewash the Maclean’s article that embarrassed the community for no other reason thatContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Holy Paul Fitzpatrick!   In what seems to be a chapter out of the ol Kilger council, rookie councilor Justin Towndale went public on his social media page with a statement claiming that council was left out of the loop of the Human Rights Tribunal Case ofContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Surviving a conspiratorial City of Cornwall led boycott isn’t easy.   As we approach our 8th Anniversary good news is always nice to see especially as we survive on a near non budget with little to no staffing. Thanks to our many contributors and supporters who helpedContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –  The Standard Freeholder ran a puff piece spinning a higher amount of complaints about the CCPS. Oddly enough there were less reported crimes in Cornwall in 2016 even though they still are raising their budgets. The police service is a cash cow.  It comes down to moneyContinue 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

CORNWALL ONTARIO – Starting CFN in 2009 has been an amazing experience.   It’s been brutal in many ways exposing the darkest sides of any community I’ve ever seen not in a cheap tv series or movie. While by far my experience with people in this town has been pleasant,Continue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – Holy Gilles Latour!   The former Liberal bag man spoke to Bill Kingston, and reading his words you almost want to pat him on the back and put a few coins in his cup. However the evidence that has been displayed so far paints a different picture.Continue Reading

Cornwall Ontario –   I live in a very odd community.  It’s as though the bottle is upside down and nothing spills. Former Team Cornwall President Gilles Latour, who is still facing 43 criminal charges, was fined $900,000.00 by the MFDA for all sorts of icky things against his investmentContinue Reading

CORNWALL ONTARIO – I left Team Cornwall after a sampling of its former President Gilles Latour, who’s now waiting his court dates from charges of fraud, including of his mother. I also am no longer a member of the Cornwall & Area Chamber of Commerce.    When I first ranContinue Reading

Cornwall Ontario – It would be interesting to have a review done of Judge Rick Leroy’s transcripts for the Diane Shay case as well as the conflict of interest case brought against Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy and councilors Elaine Macdonald and Carilyne Hebert who sat on the board of a groupContinue 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

Oh look, another BREAKING story about City Hall in the Seaway News?   The TC Media paper has a sitting City Councillor on the payroll in one Claude McIntosh. The long time former Standard Freeholder lawsuit attractor doesn’t write these stories, but there does seem to be a large volumeContinue 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
