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 […]

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

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 […]

An Open Letter to Premier Wynne Regarding Hydro Delivery Charges by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 16, 2017

Dear Premier Wynne, Your legacy will be decided by the Hydro mess that you yourself publicly own. The impact of the abuse of Ontario residents via the debacle that is our Hydro system is public record.  From paying management ten times as much as other provinces, to dumping electricity for less than it costs and […]

Marc & Jodie Emery Doth Protest Too Much Methinks by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 12, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Marc Emery has led an interesting crusade in the name of making Marijuana legal and accessible to Canadians. He, his wife Jodie, and his supporters,  along with others in the mostly BC led industry deserve thanks from all Canadians who think it’s insane for marijuana to be prohibited while tobacco and alcohol can […]

BREAKING MFDA Responds to Gilles Latour Media Quotes by Jamie Gilcig DEC 2, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – Holy Gilles Latour!   The former Liberal bag man spoke to Bill Kingston, and reading his words you almost want to pat him on the back and put a few coins in his cup. However the evidence that has been displayed so far paints a different picture. Latour has yet to explain […]

Holy Gilles Latour Former Team Cornwall Prez Nailed with $900K MFDA Fine NOV 29, 2016

Cornwall Ontario –   I live in a very odd community.  It’s as though the bottle is upside down and nothing spills. Former Team Cornwall President Gilles Latour, who is still facing 43 criminal charges, was fined $900,000.00 by the MFDA for all sorts of icky things against his investment clients including stiffing his own […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Is It Time to Change Moving Expense Rules?  SEPT 28, 2016

There has been lots of controversy and quite a few accusations thrown around about various individuals moving expenses. This is politics and mud throwing and making your opponent look bad is definitely the name of the game. Liberal rhetoric in the last campaign- “open and accountable”, a new way of doing things, sunny ways etc. […]

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 […]

Hypocrisy in Cornwall Ontario Over Cenotaph Desecration by Jamie Gilcig JULY 13, 2016

“It is a first. I have never seen such a blatant defacement of our sacred symbol and believe that if other Canadians could see it, they’d be as outraged as I am,” says Bill Maxwell, who is secretary of the Legion’s Poppy and Remembrance Committee. A young man lies in prison waiting a bail hearing […]

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, […]

Liberal Cronyism in Cornwall Ontario – LIHOU to Heart of the City via EOTB July 8, 2016

Have Local Liberals Taken Over the Glens by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 6, 2016

Cornwall is one of the oddest communities I’ve ever lived in and I’ve lived in a few.     The political corruption fingers through everything from City Hall, to charities, and even our SD&G Highlanders apparently. First you have former MPP Jim Brownell named as Honourary Lt. Colonel.    That was a little weird as […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Keith Agrees With Justin Trudeau APRIL 5, 2016

I don’t often agree with Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, but I do think he is going in the right direction with his open membership proposal. In this country our politicians often lament that the population is largely disengaged from our political process and we try to find all sorts of ways to attract young voters- […]
