Liberal MP Candidate Bernadette Clement Off to AMO Conference During Race by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

I was asked to run in the current Federal election as an Independent candidate.  A group had come together, cash in hand, ready to roll, but I decided I couldn’t do it with any integrity. Yes it would be fun to stand on stage and debate Guy & Bernie, to point out their frailties and […]

Beardsley 1 – Trudeau 0 on CTV Sound Bite to Fire Harper Staff #CDNPOLI Aug 16, 2015

Don’t you just love this man’s high standards? “Stephen Harper picked these people, he hired them, he promoted them, he protected them, and he’s keeping them on the public payroll while they run his election campaign even though he knows full well everything that they did,” Trudeau said (Referring of course to the staffers in […]

Clement Fumbles First Big PR Event of Election – Snubbed by Freeholder as Trudeau Visits Highland Games by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario — It’s been a bumpy beginning to the campaign for Cornwall City Councilor Bernadette Clement.    She’s been part of a council this term that has attacked family ice rinks at Christmas and made National news again for getting jiggy with worm and lemonde selling kids. Her riding president, Jamie Labonte, was also […]

Canadians have been given front row seats to one of the longest elections in our history. With 76 days left we can only pray that at some point in time it becomes interesting. There certainly wasn’t much excitement in the first few days of the campaign to grab our attention. Do voters care that Mulcair […]

Kathleen Wynne Ducking Patrick Brown By Election by Jamie Gilcig JULY 27, 2015 #onpoli  POLL

Premier Wynne blinked and has officially delayed PC leader Patrick Brown’s first opportunity to win a seat and sit at Queen’s Park. Normally it’s a courtesy to allow a leader of a party to gain their seat.     Delaying a by election is usually a sign of nastiness or fear. In Wynne’s case it […]

Time for Harper MP Guy Lauzon to Not Run Canada Day in Cornwall & City Ad Boycott of Largest Media  June 30, 2015

Oh Canada!   Tomorrow is July 1st.  Sadly you won’t see CFN participating in our local event that is about to be rained out (bad karma thanks to Guy) as our MP has hijacked Canada Festivities in our city. Canada Day, above all days, should be inclusive and community building.  Sadly our MP runs the […]

Clement Wins Liberal Nomination to Face Lauzon in 2015 Federal Election JUNE 24, 2015 #cdnpoli

Well one thing is becoming clearer.  It really doesn’t appear that Bernadette Clement wants to be a city councilor in Cornwall?  She has attempted to run for upper political office or hope to become a judge each election. Last night the local Liberal riding went through the charade of a nomination race with Ms Clement […]

Ontario Yours to Discover Snubs Cornwall & Eastern Ontario by Jamie Gilcig – JUNE 18, 2015

An Ontario travel website seems to think the province ends at Ottawa and Kingston.   A quick visit to the website shows that Eastern Ontario has no section and that the Cornwall area is lumped into Ottawa with no areas highlighted on its map. Eastern Ontario seems to be listed as “The Countryside” Our region, […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley on Justin Trudeau’s All Things to All Policy Announcement JUNE 17, 2015

At first glance it looks like Justin Trudeau’s recent policy announcement of a list of items that he would implement if he becomes Prime Minister was based on the wisdom of a former adviser and campaign strategist for Pierre Trudeau.  Keith Davey would always argue that “It is when the Liberal Party shifts to the […]

Liberal Riding Prez Jamie Labonte Joins Local Facebook Hate Group JUNE 15, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – Bernadette Clement is hoping to spring board from Cornwall City Council and run again for the Federal Grits as MP against incumbent Guy Lauzon. It makes sense.  Her council is in disarray and dysfunctional. Lauzon has no debating skills and his track record is full of political opportunity for a capable candidate. […]

Quick comments on some of the events and issues of the past week Polling numbers are getting interesting as a three way race is developing. It is always good for democracy when the public is engaged.

Will I Vote for Brown or Elliott Sunday? by Jamie Gilcig Ontario PC Leadership Kicks Off

CORNWALL Ontario – Politics are a fascinating fact of our lives.   They embrace the truly worst of human nature and rarely our best. It’s a blood sport.   The results impact all of our lives in so many ways. After the utter historic failure of Tim Hudak the Ontario Conservatives headed out to find […]

Letter to the Editor by Pastor Tom Newton : Municipalities will obey ban on prayers APRIL 23, 2015

  Yes, the High Court of the Land has spoken, and many gladly obey. Another nail in the coffin of religious freedom and expression! I am not surprised at the High Court’s decision here, seeing its track record on past ungodly actions: abortion, same sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, and many others. The trend is more […]
