Confusion & Corruption Erupt from Cornwall Over National Post Spanking & Seaway News Corrects Defamatory Slur of CFN. By Jamie Gilcig 110719

We live in a community that sadly discounts truth and integrity. Where terms like “fake news” get bandied around by people that truly have no understanding of news or how news works. Some of whom get elected to office. If you live in a community with little accountability this is how circus behavior occurs. Blow […]

No Treat to Taxpayers in Cornwall as Council Treats Naturopath to $45K Grant. By Mary Anne Pankhurst  110119

Just before Halloween, when it was announced that city council is shelling out $45,000. to sweeten the launch of a local naturopath’s ‘medical clinic,’ some people couldn’t help but wonder if the “treat” is some sort of a trick. Like many communities across Canada, Cornwall has a recruitment plan and is trying to attract doctors. This […]

So the official mouth pieces for the city are floating a piece with the Police Brotherhood, surprise, surprise, wanting more officers hired. They want a discussion.

Sunday Bus Debate in Cornwall Ontario – Here are 2 Solutions.  By Jamie Gilcig 090619 #cwlpoli

When I ran for mayor of this odd city one of my platform concepts was to create free busing in the city, seven days per week. The idea was to create a three year pilot project and shake down the province and the Feds. From the numbers I’d crunched it was clear that the status […]

Talking Art in Cornwall & It’s Not Too Late For City to Ditch BOM Building Farce. By Jamie Gilcig 072519

Only in Cornwall can the weird get this weird. What we have is a city that historically has not supported the arts. Right now they are paying more to keep a building empty than they gave to keep its former public art gallery open. The city should not be in the art business. They should […]

There Truly is Only 1 Way to Fix Cornwall Ontario BRAMPTON 2.0 by Jamie Gilcig 062019

The CBC just did a story on Cornwall that certainly won’t help what ails. A population over 5 years older than the rest of the province is only a part of the tale. The biggest problem is the Mayor herself, her team and her supporters. When CFN started in 2009 she was a councilor. Many […]

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.

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.
