Gail Vaz Oxlade Autism Rant @ Lisa MacLeod Proves the Power of  a Word. By Jamie Gilcig 070119  PROFANITY ALERT

George Carlin would be smiling from ear to ear over the latest explosion about the use of one of his Seven Words you can’t say on TV. Earlier this week Gail, an autism advocate, and clearly not a fan of the Ford gov’t, tweeted out : “Does she know her mother is a heartless cunt? “ […]

Are Cornwall Voters Mentally Handicapped?   By Jamie Gilcig #CWLPOLI June 28, 2019

So I’m reading coverage of a special group think with the assistance from someone from Kingston. They came up with five priorities.

The Real Issue of People Retention in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 061119

It’s so charming to see the Seaway News hint at some of the core issues here in the River City. It really is, even if they miss the mark. Whether it’s on purpose for fear of losing support from City Hall or simply a lack of talent only the viewer can decide. Shawna O’Neil recently […]

Overspending Complaint Against Cornwall Mayor Highlights Toxic Bully Culture in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 042419

Cornwall is not a unique community. It however does have a strain of bully culture that is very rare in that it’s embraced by its victims, many times more than its bullies, who really, because of cronyism, aren’t that capable. An example is that when I tried to save our Public Art Gallery and ended […]

In life people make mistakes. Smart ones clean them up or mitigate them.

Is it Time to Tax or Ban The Ad Bag in Cornwall?   by Jamie Gilcig 112918

Cornwall Ontario – We all get them every week.   Mine goes straight to the recycle bin, but that’s exactly why city’s like Montreal are deciding whether to ban them altogether.  LINK Locally TC Media ships them with the Seaway News weekly, but most end up in our landfill.    With more communities banning plastic bags […]

Cornwall Resident Puts Riverdale House Up for Sale After Election Candidate Disgust LTE 101718

Please excuse the edits.  It is the city of Cornwall that educated me. They did not do a very good job on the English. Please read the additions. It is to laugh. There is not a Mayor candidate in this election that is worth supporting. The councilors are not any better. They are totally out of […]

Bad Management & Council Lead to High Taxes in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Bad Management & Council Lead to High Taxes in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Cornwall Ontario – The city likes to give out voodoo numbers when it comes to tax increases, but the bottom line is the bottom line.  If you raise taxes nearly 20% per term without increasing revenues something always gives out. Even worse, if you borrow money to pay for a tax increase, as Cornwall did […]

Cornwall Ontario –  It’s very hard to be a good liar.   Keeping up a false veneer takes a lot of stamina and skill.  People like Cornwall City Councilor Bernadette Clement ultimately fail and badly.   While Councilor Clement likes to come across as sweetness and light with bountiful positivity more and more people see through that.
