Conrad Black: Trump is already the most successful U.S. president since Ronald Reagan 120317

The Canadian media has failed in its coverage of the biggest political news in the world in many years. Trump is the most effective U.S. president since Reagan Toronto Ontario – It is distressing to read and listen to the nonsense in the Canadian media about Donald Trump.

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.

CFN 1 on 1 with Warren Kinsella on Hate Crimes & Recipe for Hate 112917

Cornwall Ontario – It’s amazing how different people’s paths can cross over similar goals.   Fighting racism has been one of mine, and for Warren Kinsella, it’s been a passion for over twenty years, if not longer.

Warren Kinsella Writes Open Letter to Minister Melanie Joly After Twitter Block 112717

Dear Minister Joly: May I call you Melanie? You’ve blocked my access to your ministerial Twitter account, so please forgive the formality of an open letter.

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Jagmeet Singh Sets for an Interesting 2019 Election

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 […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – A Mini Cabinet Shuffle 082917

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 […]

Mike Duffy Will Win Lawsuit But Will Anyone Be Held Responsible?  By Jamie Gilcig 82517

Cornwall Ontario – Blaring headlines are all over Canadian media with the news of Senator Mike Duffy suing the RCMP and Senate for close to eight million dollars.

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Conservatives Underestimated Trudeau 080517

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 […]

Free Holder & Phil Blancher Taken to Task Over Dairy Supply Management System JUNE 5, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – I often wonder why Post Media’s Standard Freeholder would allow one of its competitor’s people to write articles for them?   I know times are hard, what with another round of buyouts that saw the likes of editor Len Hooper, and long time local fave Greg “Boomer” Peerenboom depart, but this week’s […]

Conrad Black Agrees With President Trump – Dishonest Media Are the Enemy of the People MAY 19, 2017

Even allowing for the astonishing pyrotechnics of current American politics, the Canadian journalistic reaction has been rather disappointing. Canadians have a unique ring-side seat on American personalities and events, and flatter themselves that they know that country better than any other foreigners do.
