2 Minutes for Diving to Ruth Ellen Brousseau as Trudeau Breaks Delay by Jamie Gilcig MAY 19, 2015

The lady doth protest too much, methinks What odd days in our Nation’s Capitol as members of the NDP caucus practice clear reverse sexism over Justin Trudeau tapping into his inner Jean Chretien as video shows him charging across the floor to end a delay to bull through Bill C-14 on Assisted Dying as opposed […]

Mario Leclerc States that Bernadette Clement Had Easier Ride – LTE Oct 29, 2015

Hello Editor, RE: LTE: NDP did not provide enough change – Cornwall Newswatch It is with great interest I read the opinion expressed by Brian Lynch which I agree in principle. However, there are two elephants in the room that the author failed to mention for understandable reasons. Who has moved the NDP to the […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Harper Wins G&M Leader Debate by Default – Mulcair for Best Tie! by Jamie Gilcig

Harper Wins G&M Leader Debate by Default – Mulcair for Best Tie!  by Jamie Gilcig

I have to admit I wanted to hear the three leaders of the parties with an actual chance to lead our government debate.   Elizabeth May would probably have kicked butt, but it’s important for voters to get as good a chance as they can to see the three contenders in action, especially with the […]

View From the Hill By Keith Beardsley – Thoughts of Inside a War Room SEPT 10, 2015

It is no secret that at the moment the Conservative campaign appears to be in trouble and there are plenty of calls for them to hit the reset button. Declining poll numbers are just one of many signs of that happening along with rumours of infighting and incompetence. Some of this will be true, much […]

After Meeting Local NDP Candidate I Can’t Vote in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 20, 2015 #CDNPOLI

After Meeting Local NDP Candidate I Can’t Vote in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 20, 2015 #CDNPOLI

This has to be the weirdest Federal election I’ve lived through.    I’m now a hyper partisan voter.  No more party allegiances for me. The problem is that in this race the one leader I’d lean towards I’ve lost all faith in.    Nor do I see that much separating the three main parties. Yes, […]

I Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

I  Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

  While this disturbing, but hotly awesome piece of video is going viral it shows a few things about politics in Canada in 2015. One that the Harperites are extremely unhappy with the Mike Duffy saga; not so much for what Duffy did, but for how it’s played out. Does any reasonable Canadian really believe […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – The Debate No One Won – AUG 9, 2015 #MACDEBATE

I enjoyed taking part in the True North Political panel on Friday; it was one which didn’t see the usual partisan attacks that we associate with such shows. Instead there was some pretty good discussion and analysis as we looked back at the Thursday leader’s debate. I don’t think it was a stellar debate by […]

Mulcair Wins Predictably Limp Maclean’s Leadership Debate by Jamie Gilcig AUG 7, 2015

Mulcair Wins Predictably Limp Maclean’s Leadership Debate by Jamie Gilcig AUG 7, 2015

The Maclean’s City TV Leadership Debate limped its way through the evening.   It wasn’t long, and it certainly wasn’t deep in scope. There was some grade school cheese with the sets having a blue background and the hosts wearing blue ties.   Nothing like some subliminal suggestion for the really dumb viewers. Elizabeth May […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – And They’re Off!  2015 Election Campaign Begins!  AUG 4, 2015 #CDNPOLI

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 […]

Stephen Harper Calls 78 Day Election – Local Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig AUG 2, 2015 #CDNPOLI

If money talks Stephen Harper will have another majority government.   Of course when you make the rules it’s expected that you get good results.    Right now Mr. Harper set the rules that they benefit himself and his party and it just might work. Justin Trudeau, if an election were held today would finish […]
