View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Is It Time to Change Moving Expense Rules?  SEPT 28, 2016

There has been lots of controversy and quite a few accusations thrown around about various individuals moving expenses.

Clinton Trump Debate Shows Deplorable State of US Politics by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 27, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – I watched the debate between US Presidential candidates Hilary Rodham Clinton and Donald Trump.

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Perception is Everything in Politics SEPT 23, 2016

I remember reading some comments from Liberal Senator Keith Davies, otherwise known as the “Rain Maker” for his successful stewardship of several Liberal election campaigns.
