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

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, […]

We Get Letters :  Michael Labelle Says Goodbye Cornwall, Not Been Nice 121319

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

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 […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Time For Andrew Scheer to Take a Walk in the Snow #cdnpoli 120119

Back in 1984, Pierre Elliot Trudeau went for his famous walk in the snow and then announced his resignation. Perhaps it is time for Andrew Scheer to do the same. It is time for Scheer to put his ego aside and consider the impact of his staying on as leader on the party, his family […]

Cross Border Shopping Blues for Upstate NY Self Inflicted.  By Jamie Gilcig 112719

Growing up in Montreal in the 70’s led me, as well as thousands of my fellow near border Canadians to spending time in Upstate NY. My dad being my dad we ended up owning a few houses, and after having breakfast in a “joint” called Ma Coakley’s kitchen. After eating breakfast there one Saturday morning […]

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley – New Cabinet, Same Trudeau 112219 #cdnpoli

When does 35+2= 0 That isn’t new math, that is the sum total of Trudeau’s new cabinet. Adding two extra ministers hasn’t helped a bit and the deadwood remains, maybe shuffled around a bit, but still there. Let’s look at 3 examples: Mona Fortier is the new Minister of Middle Class Prosperity. Now there is […]

We get Letters – RE Confused Cornwall Naturopathic Funding by PAC & City Council 111419

From a CFN viewer: Here’s my understanding of Heart of the City protocol: 1.       It is always best if you actually own real property before applying; 2.       You then apply for funding (new roof, new doors, new windows, a sign, etc) 3.       You submit application; 4.       Approved….YEAH!!!! 5.       City registers a LIEN on title that EVERYBODY CAN SEE!!!!! YEAH! 6.       Once time line […]

Election Day is finally here. In spite of a dismal election campaign by all of the parties exercise your democratic right and vote. It was one of those campaigns where voters wish a POX on all of them. People I talk to and that includes several partisans, made up their minds walking into the voting […]

Election Leadership Debate 2019 : Canada Loses.  By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli

What an utter farce this election has been. The format for what should’ve been the “Big” debate was a mess. The format blew chunks. Canadians needed and some actually wanted to hear from the candidates, but the Consortium of media outlets that put this together seemed more focused on gender politics than Canadian politics. If […]
