View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – What Goes Around Comes Around AUG 18, 2016

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 […]

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, […]

Ghomeshi Verdict Shows Need for Attorney General Reform in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 25,2016

Ghomeshi Verdict Shows Need for Attorney General Reform in Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – MARCH 25,2016

Jian Ghomeshi’s life will never be the same.  The countless legal bills incurred, the damage to his reputation, and at the end of the line the loss of quality of life and earnings can never be repaired. Chiefly because there is no real accountability of Crown Attorney’s in Ontario.    Cases have two factors, the […]

Kevin O’Leary Con Leadership Run Opens Language Debate in Canada by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 2, 2016

Kevin O’Leary Con Leadership Run Opens Language Debate in Canada by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 2, 2016

Kevin O’Leary is taking a page or two from Donald Trump in the US and trying to position himself for a leadership run to replace Stephen Harper for the Conservative Party. Like Trump he’s picking off popular topics that are getting him a lot of press. It’s not rocket science.   Hold out hope to […]

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 […]

Was it Racism & Homophobia That Did in Bernadette Clement’s Campaign? by Jamie Gilcig

Was it Racism & Homophobia That Did in Bernadette Clement’s Campaign? by Jamie Gilcig

Walking through the aftermath and wreckage of the election that just ended CFN has been talking to a lot of voters across the riding asking why they voted for who they chose and why they rejected candidates? Not surprisingly Bernadette Clement was tarred and feathered for being a Francophone woman with many citing allegations that […]

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 […]

Of a Veggie Burger & The End of a Very Silly Election by Jamie Gilcig

This has been the most disappointing of elections.   It’s like rows of Neanderthals grunting and throwing poo at each other here in SD&SG with no change expected. CFN was moving towards endorsing the NDP before the writ dropped which would be a first, but the local candidate, Patrick (Veggie) Burger, was so disappointing that […]

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 […]

A Canadian Election Break Down With One Week to Go by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

A Canadian Election Break Down With One Week to Go by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

So with one week to go where do we stand with one of Canada’s longest elections? Stephen Harper clearly will not enjoy another majority which has many Canadians rejoicing.    Scandal after scandal has plagued his government, but most simply have grown tired of the politics of fear mongering and threats.    As my mentor […]

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

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 […]

Letter to the Editor – Tom Manley On Conservative Tax Credits SEPT 20, 2015

Conservative Tax Credits Are Big Government The Harper Conservative are proposing a tax credit for service club memberships. That follows earlier tax credits for volunteer firemen, children’s organized sports, and children’s organized cultural activities. These are all very noble and worthy endeavours. But do they need tax credits? Do tax credits make them more worthy […]
