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. Perhaps because of the garishness of American politics, the immense amounts of […]

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 […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Vimy Ridge No Place for Partisanship APRIL 11, 2017

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 […]

Kelly Coulter Price Crunching Legal Marijuana vs Black Market APRIL 09, 2017

VICTORIA BC – Let’s just say that, hypothetically speaking, the current black market in Canada is based on three models of cultivation. The first model is the seasonal outdoor grower, the second is the hobby indoor grower and the third is the commercial indoor grower. Model one harvests every fall and sells his/her crop based […]

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 […]

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 – 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.
