Here is an editorial by Jason Setnyk: There is a popular new page on Facebook entitled “We Love Cornwall”. What does “We Love Cornwall” mean to me? Loving your City doesn’t mean you wear a blindfold, loving your City means working to make it a better place. Team Cornwall, Choose Cornwall, The Chamber and other organizations work diligently to promote this City in a positive light. One of the main objectives of economic development is to bring more jobs to our City, and hopefully better paying jobs too. In addition to economic development, quality of life is important too. I am pleased with the investments made in recent years to infrastructure such as the Benson Centre. I am optimistic that City Council will have the vision to invest in Arts and Culture too based on the findings of the Culture Plan. Of course there is more to loving your City than just promoting it, or investments in infrastructure. Cornwall like other cities faces serious and complex issues including poverty and literacy. Loving your City also means participating, volunteering, and helping make this community a better, safer, and more enjoyable place. There are a lot of non-profit groups that volunteer tirelessly to do just that. Organizations such as the Agape, Tri County Literacy Council, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, The Boys and Girls Club, Baldwin House, organizations like the Kinsmen, and the list goes on and on. There are many ways to Love Cornwall, and loving Cornwall is not just a motto, it is a way of life. I would like to say kudos and thank you to those who promote our City, and those who roll up their sleeves and volunteer to make our community a better place.
