Under Canada’s Economic Action Plan, our government stepped up with a $200 billion package for troubled lenders – the Extraordinary Financing Framework.  In normal […]

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 […]

Dear Editor People who pose such a threat to the safety of Canadians, that upon extensive reviews  have their refugee request denied, or, have such a checkered background, that they will not qualify, and as such, chose not to apply. Now given Canada’s most open and generous policies toward refugee claimants, that we even identify those illegally crossing […]

Conrad Black:  Only Muslims Can Attract Collective Admiration from Non-Muslims FEB 24, 2017

Toronto ON – There are several problems with the House of Commons private members’ motion 103 on “systemic racism and religious discrimination.” It is based on the assertion that there is a “need to quell” an “increasing public climate of hate and fear” and, implicitly, that the Parliament of Canada has the ability to “quell” […]

Conrad Black Thinks the Conservative Leader Has to Speak French FEB 19, 2017

CFN – For many weeks I have been reviewing and meeting candidates for the leadership of the federal Conservative party. It has been an astonishing race, with a multiplicity of candidates, few of whom are household names to a significant number of Canadians, and in an electoral process that is a computerized, remote-control treatment of a […]

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 – The Conservative leadership race is finally attracting attention. Kevin O’Leary’s entrance into the campaign has finally achieved what has been missing to date- IE interest. With fourteen in the race, is it time for a few to take “a walk in the snow?” Is it time for a number of the contenders […]

CORNWALL ONTARIO – Canadians woke up in January and realized that they had to find a way to pay for all those Christmas presents bought on their credit cards. Others, especially seniors on fixed incomes, were struggling to figure out what items they would have to do without, because the cost of gas and hydro […]

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. This is politics and mud throwing and making your opponent look bad is definitely the name of the game. Liberal rhetoric in the last campaign- “open and accountable”, a new way of doing things, sunny ways etc. […]

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. He stressed that in politics, perception was everything- something this latest generation of Liberals seems to have forgotten. Arrogance and entitlement have always been the downfall of the Liberals, whether […]

SD&SG MP Guy Lauzon Abuses Tax Payers With Partisan Mailer by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 16, 2016

Conservative MP Guy Lauzon issued a new mailer.   The purpose of a mailer generally is to communicate with voters in the riding.  It is done at tax payer’s expense and not of the Conservative Party. The latest mailer, which is a whopping 11×17 inches includes  a whopping four pages in English and French, nearly as […]

It didn’t take long for one of Trudeau’s ministers to put their foot in it. As has been reported Minister of Health Philpott has been somewhat free with throwing taxpayers dollars around on limousine service in the GTA. Some of the excuses that have been reported are just laughable… it wasn’t a limo it was […]
