Finance Minister Morneau Dead Man Walking -View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley 113017

Ottawa Ontario – Finance Minister Morneau has a habit of walking from one political disaster to another- essentially stepping in one cow patty after another- and for no reason other than his own foolishness. But behind his missteps lies a bigger issue and that is what did he tell the Prime Minister and what did […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Trudeau Not Keeping Canadians Safe – ISIS Vets

Ottawa Ontario – When one takes the oath of office as Prime Minister or of Minister of Public Safety, it is implied that you will do your very best to keep Canada and Canadian men, women and children safe. This includes from both external threats and internal ones. But if you are Justin Trudeau, you […]

Ottawa Ontario – With the NDP electing Jagmeet Singh as their new leader we have seen the stage set for an interesting federal election in 2019. In a way it is the passing of the political torch from the baby boomers to the younger generation. Not only is Singh a match for Justin Trudeau on […]

Silver Spoons Morneau & Trudeau Define Liberal Arrogance by Keith Beardsley 090217

Ottawa Ontario – Liberal arrogance will be Justin’s downfall, just as it was for his father and other Liberal government’s. For those who have been around for a while, we all remember Liberal government’s breaking major election promises, not just the minor ones that can be set aside or postponed for economic reasons. Why would […]

Ottawa Ontario – Ottawa awoke from its summer slumber today when Trudeau or perhaps more accurately his PMO staff decided to put together a small cabinet shuffle. At least it had those inside the Ottawa bubble chattering about it quite a bit. I would guess that the rest of the country just tuned it out […]

Ottawa Ontario – I must admit that our visit to the St Albert’s Cheese Factory yesterday started out as a bit of a lark. After reading David Akin’s post on Twitter that Justin Trudeau would be visiting the cheese factory, we decided to go over and see him. The original intention was to try to […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Time to Move On From Khadr 072717

Ottawa Ontario – There is a point with every political attack on an opponent when you have to put a leash on it and move on to another issue. Staying on an issue too long gives your opponent time to get organized and counter attack, thereby limiting your impact. Both the Khadr and Rolling Stone […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Question Period Change Shouldn’t be by Force APRIL 11, 2017

OTTAWA ONTARIO – It is unfortunate that the Liberals have tried to ram the changes to the Standing Orders of the House of Commons down everyone’s throats. Change is definitely needed and some of the changes which come out of the work done by Michael Chong have merit. For instance designating one day as a […]

Ottawa ONTARIO – There are times when it is best to put partisanship aside. The ceremony at Vimy Ridge was one of those moments. It is a shame and a little perplexing that Prime Minister Trudeau didn’t extend an invitation to the opposition leaders to join him there. This was a missed opportunity. Trudeau had […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – CPC Leadership Mudslinging Begins MARCH 20, 2017

Ottawa ONTARIO –  I see that the fun and games have begun in earnest as Tory leadership candidates insult each other and toss accusations of cheating around. All of this coming after O’Leary went public and accused someone of rigging the leadership election. I can’t say that I am surprised that someone has tried to […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – O’Leary in the Shark Tank FEB 3, 2017

As O’Leary or his team commits another blunder by posting a video of him having fun at a shooting range just as the funerals for the Mosque victims in Quebec starts, sharks of every colour- blue, red, orange and green should be circling around him. The blue sharks for the obvious reason that he is […]

OTTAWA ONTARIO – When you hear that the KKK is planning a victory march to celebrate Donald Trump’s election win, it does make you wonder whether or not it was the right move for a candidate to align herself with some of his immigration policies even if there was an attempt to “Canadianize” them. No […]
