Jody 1 Justin 0 – Butts Resigns from Trudeau PMO by Jamie Gilcig 021919

Hell hath no scorn like…… Gerald Butts has resigned. This is mammoth. By legal stance it of course is not an indication of any guilt, but by political standards it’s a fart breath away from going full McGuinty, who oddly enough was where Gerald Butts cut his teeth politically. It’s odd in 2019; that the […]

Conrad Black: Trudeau Liberals Bungled the Overblown SNC-Lavalin Affair 021619

By accepting her change of positions, Wilson-Raybould has largely disqualified herself from complaining now about the motives for her so-called demotion The SNC-Lavalin matter has become a showcase for a panoply of media and political attitudes of widely varying levels of justification. To review some of the elements, there was nothing wrong, practically or ethically, […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley –  Justice Committee on SNC-Lavalin Scandal Goes Nowhere – 021419

Yesterday the drama on the Hill unfolded as expected when the Justice Committee met on the SNC-Lavalin scandal. Everyone knew opposition MPs would be demanding answers to the SNC-Lavalin mess while the Liberals would try and stonewall any investigation. Other than a lot of phony outrage, did anyone actually expect the Liberals to allow an […]

Justin Trudeau’s SUNNY DAYS Turn Cloudy as Jody Wilson-Raybould SNC Lavalin Scandal Blows Up by Jamie Gilcig 021419

There’s a certain irony about writing this piece on Valentine’s Day as it appears for many their Love for Justin Trudeau has gone stone cold. Most don’t remember that JT was in 3rd place trailing Thomas Mulcair and Stephen Harper at one time in the last election run when he and his team started passing […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Is Thomas Mulcair Right About NDP Votes Turning Green?

Back on February 4th Tom Mulcair was speculating that some NDP supporters might think the Green Party deserved a second look. It is an interesting thought. Should it happen, it could seriously damage the election chances of the NDP, and it has the potential to damage the Liberals as well. The NDP is in bad shape- […]

Eric Duncan Not a Gimme for Conservative Nod in SD&G by Jamie Gilcig 020119

Eric Duncan Not a Gimme for Conservative Nod in SD&G by Jamie Gilcig 020119

No surprise that Eric Duncan wanted to get into the race quickly to replace the thug and corrupt bully that Guy Lauzon was. As his former #1 Duncan played a huge role for the Big Blue Machine in this region, but that machine has seen a few wheels fall off over the years. Not enough […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Trudeau Gov’t Does a Mini Shuffle 011419

A busy day in politics as Trudeau does a mini shuffle. Some moves were surprising, some not so much. Kicking O’Regan out of Veterans Affairs was simply a survival move, IE save Trudeau’s buddy and put him somewhere else and hope he doesn’t screw up there as well. Personally, I think he will be just […]

Conrad Black : America Reshaping the World Under President Donald Trump 011419

The U.S. is demonstrating almost effortlessly how illusory is the idea that any other country or group of countries can challenge its pre-eminence Almost indiscernible in the endless tumult about President Donald Trump is the objective return of American might, right on our doorstep. A casual sampler of the Canadian, and even the American, media, […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Looking Ahead – 2019

It seems that everyone is producing polls while pontificating about the next election results in 2019. I am not one to put much faith in any election polling this far out- let’s face it they are not much better than a guess and the results can be impacted by the wording, the order of the […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Time for a Christmas Truce 122418

One would be hard pressed to find any politicians or their staff showing any Christmas spirit on either Twitter or Facebook these days. The animosity continues to reach new heights every day as political partisans of all stripes continue their attacks on each other. One of the biggest changes that I have observed over the […]

Dianne Poirier is a Nitwit – Liberal Francophone Organizer on Display @ McDonnell Rally by Jamie Gilcig 120218

Cornwall Ontario – I kinda giggled when I found out that there was a Canadian Francophone organisation locally.   Not because I disrespect Francophones, but this area has people like that silly man with his pins and of course Dianne Poirier, retired school teacher,  who besides being President of this local group has been a driving […]

LTE – Ross Ayotte Calls Out Justin Trudeau on Language Hypocrisy re Ford French Uni Cancellation 112118

CTV  had reported on Feb 14 2012 –   Liberal MP Justin Trudeau is facing a barrage of criticism for suggestions that Quebec separation could be deemed acceptable given the politics of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Now prime Minister Trudeau is trying to divide the French and English population once again by stating Ontario is anti French […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Scheer Disruptions Bad Idea 103118

Ottawa Ontario – Once again, we see Conservative staff being used as props or in today’s case more correctly as “disrupters” at a meeting. This time it was at a meeting of the NATO Association where Liberal MPs banded together to remove a former Liberal, now Conservative MP, from the chair position. Conservative staff proceeded […]

Captain Creepy Wants to Fight the Media by Jamie Gilcig 123018

Cornwall Ontario –  It was really odd reading the headline about Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer wanting to fight the media or hold us accountable. I have no bone to pick with Captain Creepy.  It’s tough being Stephen Harper light, without substance,  and a face that makes Tim Hudak look kinda warm and fuzzy. I remember […]

UCDSB Teacher TRACY CHAMPAGNE Sued for Defamation in Cornwall 091618

Cornwall Ontario –   It’s a scary world we live in when a school teacher commits defamation and refuses to own up to it.  We expect teachers to help instil morals in our future citizens. For Cornwall area educator Tracy Champagne her day in court will be coming up shortly. The incident stems from a social […]

Ford Gov’t Goes Full Poutine & Invokes Not Withstanding Act Over Toronto Council Decision 091018

Cornwall Ontario – Shock and Awe as an Ontario Conservative government takes a page out of Quebec politics to chop up Toronto City Council. The only issue this writer has are the optics.  Surely there are other councils, like the one here in Cornwall which are not serving the public equitably. Many in the public […]
