Conrad Black :   Seeking Radical Change in Ontario the Choice is Clear 060718

Ontario’s long-awaited election day is finally almost upon us.

Digesting the Ontario Leadership Election Debate by Jamie Gilcig 053118

Cornwall Ontario – This has been a mystifying election.   Leadership issues with the PC’s, the demise of a Premier and her party, and Andrea Horwath digging her heels in and not doing the right thing, as Doug Ford did, and jettisoning candidates that clearly should not be in elected office.   And yes, Hitler memes qualify […]

Is the Ford Campaign Running Out of Steam?  By Jamie Gilcig 052518

Cornwall Ontario – Even short campaigns have their peaks and valleys.    After it became clear that Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberals were toast there’s been a huge shift, especially from the Labour Block, back to the NDP which has given Andrea Horwath and her NDP momentum.

LIBS REDLINING in Ontario as Wynne in Danger of Losing Own Seat as Labour Turns 051918

Wynne “Trumpwins” Ford as Moody’s Drops Ontario Rating by Jamie Gilcig 041918

Cornwall Ontario – You get the feeling that Kathy doesn’t really know how to drive a truck, or run a province, and apparently now not campaign as she lashed out at PC leader Doug Ford recently, comparing him to Donald Trump and unleashing her own inner Hillary. The problem is that telling the public that […]

Silence is Golden for Ford Campaign as June Election Nears – by Jamie Gilcig 033118

Cornwall Ontario – Contrary to what certain pundits blather about,  Doug Ford was the opponent Kathy Wynne didn’t want to face.

Patrick Brown – People’s Guarantee Not Guaranteed.  By Jamie Gilcig 112717

Cornwall Ontario – Don’t you hate the utterly Orwellian titles politicians are giving their game plans?  Kathy loves to use the term “fair” in her bills and plans even though most are certainly not fair to those that pay for them.
