St. Mary’s Hospital Death in Montreal After Patient Refused Emergency Surgery JAN 20, 2016

PLEASE SIGN our Petition to the Attorney General of Ontario to have the wrongful charges dropped against Jamie Gilcig and Investigate the event fully.

It’s very rare that I appeal to the community and there are some that will suggest that this appeal is strictly for myself; maybe for selfish reasons, but it’s certainly not meant to be treated. On February 7th my life changed.  I had gone to court to try and collect from a client.  There was […]

Letter to the Editor on Electricity In Ontario by William Hopkinson of Cornwall

Hydro One has to be stopped.   With the recent announcement that the Ontario Hydro debt retirement charge will be taken off hydro bills in 2016 they seem to be buttering up the Ontario voter and taxpayer.  That debt was actually paid off in 2010.  Thankfully, in Cornwall we are not subject to the Ontario Hydro […]

Do We Really Care About Healthcare in Ontario?   by Jamie Gilcig – April 1, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – There’s a picture of Elaine MacDonald leading a march down Pitt Street over the health accord in today’s Freeholder.

$14 Minimum Wage in Ontario? I say no and why by Jamie Gilcig January 21, 2014

$14 Minimum Wage in Ontario?  I say no and why by Jamie Gilcig  January 21, 2014

CFN –   There are calls again to raise the minimum wage.    As someone who’s worked for minimum wage in their lifetime I understand the symbolism of that term, but what it’s become is a fulcrum for poverty development that actually hurts the employability of masses of people. Advocates rightly state that it’s near […]

Why is the Province of Ontario & Area Agencies Boycotting CFN via Ad & Notice Placements?

Why is the Province of Ontario & Area Agencies Boycotting CFN via Ad & Notice Placements?

CFN – One of the biggest obstacles in growing our humble independent media outlet is the bizarre boycott of CFN by government agencies.

The Possibility of Hamilton, Ontario by Jacqueline Milner

CFN – A recent visit with a friend in Hamilton, Ontario opened my eyes to “POSSIBILITY”.  The possibility of growing flowers and food on my own front yard.  Many front yard vegetable gardens were sighted on my stroll through an older neighborhood.  Think of the possibilities this offers.  The possibility of nutritious low cost food, […]
