LETTER TO THE EDITOR – Stephen Harper’s Conservative Government Attacks Liberal Opposition: Tries to Associate Michael Ignatieff with Anti-Semitism – Kevin Parkinson – November 21, 2009

Politics sunk into an unprecedented abyss last week in this country when the Prime Minister of Canada approved advertising that accused the official opposition, the Liberal Party of Canada, of being  associated with anti-Semitism.

So let’s say that […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR – Kevin Parkinson – H1N1 Flu Vaccine – Cornwall Ontario

The media continues almost daily to browbeat the Canadian public into accepting the H1N1 vaccine,  now approved by Health Canada, a very shady government department that is intimately linked to the pharmaceutical giants. If you doubt that, read Shiv Chopra’s new book, “Corrupt to the Core,” and you’ll be horrified when you see how deep the […]

So why does Cornwall want Fewer City Councilors? Who gains and what are the impact of such a possibility? CORNWALL ONTARIO

So why does Cornwall want Fewer City Councilors?  Who gains and what are the impact of such a possibility?  CORNWALL ONTARIO

A tiny item snuck through this week’s city council meeting in Cornwall.    I love how council defers tough issues to city management for assessment and reports.  Usually it’s done so with the tacit goal of management coming back with justification with council’s desire. So is this concept of reducing city council about power?  Right now […]

So What Would you do to keep your seat if you were a MP??  Elections are good for the Economy – 2009 Federal Election

Politics are a blood sport.    They are not for the squeamish.   We don’t really want honest politicians.  We don’t want fair politicians.  We want our politician’s to serve our best interest.  We want our MP to bring Jobs and prosperity to our riding; even if it’s at the loss of another community. This is human […]
