Will Leslie O’Shaughnessy Quit Again And Be Replaced by Bob Kilger? JUNE 3, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – What about Bob?    Is he coming back?  Is Cornwall turning into a George Romero movie? Leslie O’Shaughnessy is one bad poker player. In other media reports he stated that he had a legal opinion on his Conflict of Interest incident and that he’d be getting a second opinion. Legal opinions are expensive. […]

Conflict of Interest & Harassment in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MAY 28, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – This can be a very very odd town to not only cover news, but deal with how stories are covered. Cornwall Housing threatens to evict seniors and tenants if they put in window air conditioners and we’re the only outlet to cover the story.  Not a peep out of The Freeholder, The […]

CORNWALL Ontario –  It’s been a whirlwind of a week here in Cornwall and CFN Central. As many viewers know all of my criminal charges have now been dropped. Chiefly the police charges that I’d made threatening phone calls and uttered threats against Mike Bedard, formerly of Roy’s & Platinum Pools, and apparently of SCM […]

Sun News Network Gilles Latour Canadian Tire & North Strategic PR Firm – Media Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 13, 2015

CFN – Media is a hard biz these days.   Even the big guns suffer.   Today, on Friday the 13th Sun News Network shuttered down.  They flipped the switch to off.   I won’t get into the merits of Sun News and it’s fake boobed talking heads or far right Rush Limbaugh wannabees. I […]

Cornwall City Council To Vote on New Arts Position – I and Management Say Nay by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 9, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – Sheep.  Not everyone likes them.  They can be a bit like Art.  Well actually that would be taking artistic licence as sheep really aren’t like art unless well….we are entering a fuzzy zone of mystical proportions that probably aren’t relative to tonight’s City Council meeting in Cornwall where one of the issues […]

Cornwall Residents to Rally for Vincent Family Ice Rink FRIDAY DEC 26th 1 PM & Why I Think the Rink Should Stay by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – Sometimes in life you make a mistake.  Sometimes you can even be right and make a mistake. I don’t think too many are disputing the by laws of the City of Cornwall; but an awful lot of folks will be disputing the interpretation and application of those laws by supporting the Vincent […]

2014 CFN Naughty & Nice List & O’Shaughnessy Council Back to the Future Beginning by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – Alas many of us had hope for change after Mayor Bob Kilger and three of his henchmen were bounced in the last election. There was a clear message from the people that change was wanted in our city, but sadly, as some predicted, that change has not occurred, at least not yet. […]

Thoughts on Council Raises & Police Checks for Cornwall Ontario Council by Jamie Gilcig – DEC 18, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – I’m going to pay a rare compliment to our city council.   Maybe rare shouldn’t be the term.   Because of the weirdness that was the Kilger council of the last term there was very little to compliment our elected officials about.  Nearly half of our current council are from that last […]

And it’s Begun – My thoughts on our new Mayor and Council in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – DEC 1, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – Politicians have a funny trait of saying one thing and doing another.  Many in Ontario for example were shocked and bewildered when former Premier Mike Harris actually kept some of his campaign promises. New Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy took the chain of command tonight.  There’s a lot of interesting catch phrases and […]
