Clement Council Waste Plan We be an Expensive Disaster by Jamie Gilcig 030819

Ugh snowflakes. Listening to Carolyne Hebert frankly gives me gas. Sadly, we get the government we collectively deserve and a rigged pro labour election has seen her and other snowflakes rubber stamp management budgets and plan. Starting April it appears that we will have a six bag limit in Cornwall per house for Garbage. And […]

Trashy Meeting of Cornwall City Council Turns Ugly Over Garbage Recycling Contract 011619

Leave it to Cornwall City Management to find ways to turn the optics ugly when it comes to contracts and RFPs. Just like the GSDL Pharmacy contract where it appeared that Medical Arts Pharmacy was screwed over, now long time service provider HGC is fighting for its survival locally.

It’s Time for Maureen Adams to Give up on Cornwall MPAC Lawsuit by Jamie Gilcig 110718

Pink Mafia & Labour Hijack Cornwall Election – McGillis Back in South Stormont – 2018 Election Coverage 231018

Cornwall Ontario –  It was a flawed election Monday night.   Clearly there was an issue with the electronic voting as the city’s website kept flashing to zero votes and then trickling in amounts.

LTE FRANK PREVOST KNEW – Will the Cornwall Regional Airport Crash and Burn? 221018

Dear Editor, On Friday October 26, 2018, Cornwall takes a giant leap… toward irrelevance.

Friday October 26, is […]

The Cornwall Election That Really Wasn’t.  By Jamie Gilcig 221018

Cornwall Ontario –   They say in 12 Step that you can’t truly start your recovery until you hit rock bottom. This 2018 election normally would be that rock bottom.  Time will tell if it’s so. A corrupt city management and council have essentially rigged the election.   All you have to do is look at who […]

Picking the Lesser Evil for the Cornwall Ontario 2018 Election by Julie Johnston 101918

Picking the Lesser Evil for the Cornwall Ontario 2018 Election by Julie Johnston 101918

Picking the lesser evil! Four years ago, I voted for Leslie O’Shaughnessy because Bob Kilger allowed the city to crucify whistleblowers and chose to protect the abusers instead! So I chose the lesser evil! My gut at the time knew that O’Shaughnessy would be no different but I took the chance that maybe, just maybe, […]

Any Cornwall Candidate that Supports the BMO Arts Centre Doesn’t Deserve Your Vote by Jamie Gilcig 101818

Cornwall politics are essentially shameless, corrupt, and frankly the government we collectively deserve. No other issue highlights this better than the BMO farcical art centre hustle. Essentially for over 30 years the city doled out a very very meagre amount of money to sustain the charity that was our Public Art Gallery.  Run by fumble […]

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 […]

Cornwall Ontario – Geez there are fire sales and bad deals,  and there is the sweetheart deal that the City of Cornwall is giving the Cornwall Colts for some reason?   I mean this is worse than a Marc Bergevin trade. At issue is that the city has two facilities that have far too much empty […]
