Mayor & MP’s Picnic All Wet – MP Lauzon Refuses to Disclose Canada Day Budget – by Jamie Gilcig MAY 23, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –   Monday was a rainy drizzly day in Cornwall.  Apparently our mayor, not big on original thought or ideas of his own, tried to team up with another sizzling mind in MP Guy Lauzon to have a partisan party in Lamoureux Parc at taxpayer expense. Did you know about it?  I didn’t. […]

Wynne $50M Min Income Plan Voter Pandering by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 24, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – There’s a reek of petty desperation and vote buying in the latest cookie being tossed to voters in Ontario.    At the end of the day many see through it though.    Lindsay, Hamilton, and Thunder Bay have been chosen for a pilot project for guaranteed minimum incomes. $50M divided by 4,000 […]

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 – O’Leary In As Race Really Begins JAN 19, 2017

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 […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Short Term Gain Can Lead to Long Term Pain NOV 15, 2016

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 […]

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 […]

Conrad Black Reviews Early Days of Trudeau Regime JULY 10, 2016

Conrad Black Reviews Early Days of Trudeau Regime JULY 10, 2016

A pattern is emerging in the conduct of the Trudeau government. It straddles fairly stylishly between gestures to the trendy and fashionable cutting leftward edge of its support without grossly offending the solid centre of the country that provides the majority for any Canadian federal government. That centre was fairly comfortable with the Harper government, […]

Lauzon A Pigeon With No Roost as Trudeau Gains Majority – Clement Back to Council by Jamie Gilcig

Lauzon A Pigeon With No Roost as Trudeau Gains Majority – Clement Back to Council by Jamie Gilcig

Canadians have spoken, and loudly, condemning Stephen Harper and rebuking his policies to the point of giving Justin Trudeau and his Liberals a full majority. Thomas Mulcair and his NDP fared even worse than Harper sliding back to their traditional less than 50 seats. Locally Guy Lauzon handily beat City Councilor Bernadette Clement for a […]

Conrad Black Writes Stephen Harper’s Political Obituary – OCT 17, 2015

Conrad Black Writes Stephen Harper’s Political Obituary – OCT 17, 2015

The arguments for voting for Conservative Leader Stephen Harper are numerous and persuasive. He has been a competent and diligent prime minister who has avoided fiscal imprudence, brought us well through the 2008 financial crisis and has gone to great and imaginative lengths to keep taxes down and shrink public-sector spending as a share of […]

SD&SG Riding President Calls Incumbent MP A Bully on Social Media by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

As we get closer to the 19th it seems the local Liberals are feeling the frustration from trailing so badly in the poll numbers.      Or simply they have an utter boob as a riding President and simply didn’t replace him as they never had much hope of actually winning?   At the 8 […]

Media Pushing Hard for Justin Trudeau Victory in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig OCT 11, 2015

Media Pushing Hard for Justin Trudeau Victory in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig OCT 11, 2015

Maybe Stephen Harper was right all those years claiming an unfair media bias…or maybe all those years of claiming media bias are coming home to bite him on his thinking parts, but this election is seeing a clear surge this Thanksgiving weekend of media mania for all things Justin Trudeau and the Liberals. Which is […]

Burger Knocks Lauzon Down and Clement Kicks Him by Reg Coffey

Patrick Burger, Guy Lauzon, Bernadette Clement, Elaine Kennedy CFN- It was a feisty debate at the Civic Complex last night. Three of the four candidates were ready for battle and battle they did. The Green Party Candidate, Elaine Kennedy, was much more circumspect about the election preferring to talk about the environment and communication in general […]
