Top Trends in Canadian Sport for Youth

Hockey has been Canada’s most beloved sport for over a century. In U Sports, ice hockey is the major trend. However, due to the changing demographics of the country, we’re seeing a change in the sport trends among the country’s youth. The main national sport still holds its value.

So it’s Sunday. A lot has Changed this week, in Cornwall and the World.  By Jamie Gilcig 032220

What a wild week. So much illness. So much death. We will survive, but the World will never be the same, much as it changed after 9/11. And it’s just beginning. We will see a huge financial disaster, one of epic size that we haven’t seen in about 100 years. We all will be losing […]

Weak Clement Council Will Lead to Deaths in Cornwall From the COVID 19 Coronavirus.  Editorial by Jamie Gilcig 031320 #CWLPOLI

Mamma Mia where is our mayor and her social media post writer? Flipper Clement makes a lot of noise, but she has failed this community during this crisis. First there was the NAVCANADA fiasco, and then her perpetual petty unprofessional attack on CFN viewers by refusing to issue information to all media outlets which is […]

Letter to the Editor: The Self Centred and The Ignorant vs. CoVID-19 …Guess Who Wins 031220

Dear Editor, Here’s the problem… People are saying if I get the virus, I get it, and they’re not exercising caution… they are arses and may not know it, so maybe it’s time they heard why. Example overheard today… A Cornwall teacher plans on extending a Caribbean holiday to take advantage of schools being closed […]

Dear Justin Trudeau – Today Wasn’t Enough – You Need to Embrace this Idea to Help All Canadians.  By Jamie Gilcig 031220 #cdnpoli

Covid 19, Coronavirus, Sars2, whatever we’re calling this devastating illness that may kill as many as 6% of us, especially those of us over 50, overweight, with high blood pressure and other health issues is now the World’s main focus. We’ve seen some major gaffes on the part of the Canadian government, and other governments […]

$351,735.30   Is All That’s Been Raised for Cornwall Art Centre BOM Building Fiasco.  By Jamie Gilcig 03092020 #cwlpoli

City Hall confirmed that after several years all that has been raised. IE, money in the bank, from all of those wanting an art centre in Cornwall at the former tiny Bank of Montreal building is a paltry….. $351,735.30 The City to date has purchased the building for nearly $500K. It’s had at least two […]

Is Cornwall’s COVID 19 Coronavirus Pandemic Drill Coming to a Close? LTE 030320

Is Cornwall’s COVID 19 Coronavirus Pandemic Drill Coming to a Close?  LTE 030320

Dear Editor, From shortly after midnight, and into the early hours of March 6, 2020, the Diamond Princess evacuees hope to leave the Cornwall Nav Centre quarantine facility and take back their lives. And if we’ve dodged a bullet, it’s chiefly because nobody was infected to start with, and it was “in spite of” mismanaged […]

Why Canada’s Reconciliation Plans Have Failed by Doug George-Kanentiio Akwesasne Mohawk 030120

Why Canada’s Reconciliation Plans Have Failed by Doug George-Kanentiio  Akwesasne Mohawk 030120

I am a residential school survivor and this reconciliation thing was a failure from the beginning. Why-because none of those highly paid federal civil servants-including the Native ones-had the common sense to ask us what we thought would work and how. Not once did any of these people come to Akwesasne and ask to meet […]

PREMIUM CONTENT So I’m Watching the 1st Nations Illegal Blockade Drama…It’s Time to Take Action. By Jamie Gilcig  Editorial

What a hot mess. At root is the law of the land is being trampled on. IF a society doesn’t have rule of law respected then our laws are not really worth anything. We have court injunctions not being respected. We have police services refusing to enforce court orders. We have Canada near paralyzed by […]

Gay Agenda Pushing Hard in Cornwall & SD&G – Complaints About Drag Story Time. By Jamie Gilcig

We all want to live in a diverse world and support everyone to be the best person they can possibly be. I know I do. Lord knows I love a good drag show too. Drag Queens, as highlighted in movies like Priscilla and Too Wong Foo helped mainstream what was once a slice of Burlesque. […]

Letter to the Editor on Coronavirus in Cornwall 012620

Letter to the Editor on Coronavirus in Cornwall 012620

Dear Editor, Does Canada have the resources to lock down a population of millions in a half dozen cities? Does Ontario have the wherewithal to build a couple of 1000 bed hospitals in two weeks? Does any public safety authority have the gumption to institute an aggressive screening and tracking protocol? Anyways, while you’re counting […]

Keith Beardsley Wants to See  A Strong Woman Run for the Conservative Leadership – View From the Hill 010720 #cdnpoli

The Conservative leadership race is off and running. More like a pegged-legged sailor than a sprinter, but at least they are moving. The party is carrying a lot of negative baggage from the 2019 campaign. It will have to do a damn good job of persuading Canadians that they represent a modern Conservative view that […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Will Trudeau Pounce on PC Leadership Void? #cdnpoli 122219

If you love comedy you will enjoy following the Conservative Party after they lost the 2019 election. Over decades of working with and for them, I often heard them say how the country should be run more like a business. Well they can’t even run their own party and if their party was a business, […]

Rona Ambrose is the Only Possible Leader Able to Defeat Trudeau for Conservatives.  By Jamie Gilcig 121319 #cdnpoli

Andrew Scheer lost to Justin Trudeau. No need to rehash the high end baggage that Trudeau and his Liberals carried into this last Federal Election, but it’s clear to say that a party only one term out of office with a strong base should’ve earned an easy majority. Does that Conservative brand have issues? Yes, […]

Editor’s Note. Mike was born in Cornwall. Went off for his career, and attempted to retire to Cornwall having purchased a home in Riverdale. Hi Jamie. I thought I should make it official for you. I am no longer a resident of Cornwall. Before I trash them I should give the thumbs up. 1/ the […]

We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko on Calibration of Smart Meters & Cornwall Water Meters 120519

Water Meters: OK what makes Cornwall so unique to have one of the highest water consumption per capita in all of Canada (ref.: Based on the city’s research, people across Canada use about 250 liters of water per person per day while in Cornwall it’s about 450 liters.”). How was this figured obtained – was […]

Cornwall Residential Water Meters A Desperate Cash Grab. By Jamie Gilcig #cwlpoli 120519

Cornwall Residential Water Meters A Desperate Cash Grab.  By Jamie Gilcig #cwlpoli 120519

The most stunning thing about Cornwall Politics is that the sheep are stunningly silent until it’s too late. Facing an anticipated 7% tax rate hike, city management and council have been flirting and floating having “Smart Water Meters” for the approximately 16,000 buildings in Cornwall. The basic argument for such meters is usually conservation. Numbers […]

Conrad Black: The IPCC isn’t quite as apocalyptic as Greta Thunberg 120219 #grnpoli

I am not trying to twist the IPCC’s meaning. It clearly acknowledges that an acceleration (and a slight acceleration at that) in global warming is not certain and if it occurs at all, it will not be solely due to human activities. The Green Terror grips Canada. Everyone can agree that environmental pollution should be […]
