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 […]

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.

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Looking Ahead 2016 Pt 3  The Conservatives

The Conservatives begin 2016 in a very different place from where they have been for the last 10 years. Defeats are never fun, but they offer the Conservatives a chance to rejuvenate, rebuild and rededicate themselves to promoting Canadian Conservative values. Forget about American, Australian and British values, focus on Canadian values. Defeat offers a […]

Gross Political Cronyism Funding the IPM in SD&G by Jamie Gilcig MAY 5, 2015

CFN – A recent Standard Freeholder story starts off  with a very telling question. “How do you justify spending $100,000 of tax money on marketing purposes?” That’s what we call a “money question” not because of the cash in play, but because it rips to the root of the act.  You really can’t justify that […]

CORNWALL Ontario – Politicians say a lot of things.   They really do.

Liberal Del Jones of Morrisburg Ontario Looks Forward to the End of the Harper Government – LTE  Aug 19, 2013

Each day that passes we are one day closer to the end of the Harper government and for me that is enough motivation to work hard on behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and Justin Trudeau.   Mr. Harper’s comments that Liberals have “dangerous ideas” and their proposals are “so extreme they would make […]
