Can Patrick Brown Really Change the Culture of the PC Party in Ontario? by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 7, 2016

Can Patrick Brown Really Change the Culture of the PC Party in Ontario? by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 7, 2016

As many regular CFN viewers know I am “Hyper Non Partisan” politically.  I decided, after dealing with politicians here on CFN that I could no longer support Partisan Politics. It made no sense from a personal view point.    Yes, belonging to a group could be a good thing, but it also can be an […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

Burger Knocks Lauzon Down and Clement Kicks Him by Reg Coffey

Burger Knocks Lauzon Down and Clement Kicks Him by Reg Coffey

Patrick Burger, Guy Lauzon, Bernadette Clement, Elaine Kennedy CFN- It was a feisty debate at the Civic Complex last night. Three of the four candidates were ready for battle and battle they did. The Green Party Candidate, Elaine Kennedy, was much more circumspect about the election preferring to talk about the environment and communication in general […]

Garden Girl is Sick of the Money Sucking Vortex & the Federal Election – OCT 3, 2015

Garden Girl is Sick of the Money Sucking Vortex & the Federal Election – OCT 3, 2015

Apparently Stephen Harper has visited S.,D. & G. and proclaimed that rural Canada should have better internet. The problem is not that we don’t have decent internet, it is that we are expected to pay astronomical amounts for data when our urban friends pay a pittance. Especially when our incomes are compared. In fact, there […]

Lauzon Toughs It Out During Election While Wife Endures Lymphoma by Jamie Gilcig

Lauzon Toughs It Out During Election While Wife Endures Lymphoma by Jamie Gilcig

It’s an odd and strange election here in SD&SG.  With MP Guy Lauzon polling with over 60% support there is little doubt he will be re elected.   The lack of pork delivered to the riding this term clearly shows that the Harper team feel no threat to SD&SG turning Red or Orange. In fact […]

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 […]

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 – 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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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. The question now becomes where will the anti-Harper vote go? With three opposition parties dividing up that vote, it […]
