View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – What’s Justin Trudeau Got to Hide?  031319

So, what do the Liberals have to hide? It certainly looks like they need to hide something when you consider how fast they shut down the emergency meeting of the Justice Committee. At this point it looks like Trudeau has decided to double down and dig in and simply take his lumps on the SNC-Lavalin […]

The Liberals have stumbled their way into a disaster by Conrad Black 031019

Conrad Black: The Liberals have stumbled their way into a disaster Justin Trudeau can still clean it up, by addressing the real issues: whatever is the right thing for prosecutors to do can still be done, but the government has foolishly straddled a serrated political knife-edge As the SNC-Lavalin controversy is inexplicably fumbled, a few […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – A Snap Election for the Trudeau Liberals? 030219

What an amazing day yesterday! A brutal day for the Liberal Party and especially staff in the PMO. Jody Wilson-Raybould’s testimony was devastating and no matter how the Liberals now attempt to discredit her testimony and no matter how many attack dogs they send out to dispute what the former Attorney General stated- they can […]

The Director – Development, Chief Building Official of South Glengarry had been under a lot of heat. After CAO Bryan Brown was terminated many wondered why Lalonde wasn’t terminated at the same time.

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Time for a Christmas Truce 122418

One would be hard pressed to find any politicians or their staff showing any Christmas spirit on either Twitter or Facebook these days. The animosity continues to reach new heights every day as political partisans of all stripes continue their attacks on each other. One of the biggest changes that I have observed over the […]

Retired Cornwall Firefighter Mark A MacDonald – Bob Turner Would Make 1 Central New Fire Station LTE 100218

The new Council really needs to consider the possibility of having one central location for the new fire station, such as the old Bob Turner site. Attached is a map of the city that clearly shows a 6 minute response time that covers most of the city and is still well within the allowable response times […]

Bad Management & Council Lead to High Taxes in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Cornwall Ontario – The city likes to give out voodoo numbers when it comes to tax increases, but the bottom line is the bottom line.  If you raise taxes nearly 20% per term without increasing revenues something always gives out. Even worse, if you borrow money to pay for a tax increase, as Cornwall did […]

Bad Politics Again Hit SD&G OSPCA as Fundraiser Turnout Falls #EPICFAIL 092418

Cornwall Ontario – The SD&G Ospca twice refused full year ad plans from this newspaper, one paid for by a local businessperson.    Playing politics instead of putting the animals first has led to tragic results. “This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Carol Link, manager. “We had a low turnout […]

What Does Hugo Rodrigues Have Against Cornwall Councilor Mark MacDonald by Jamie Gilcig 080418

Media can be a bewildering thing.    We are flooded with content through the day.  Local, regional, National, happy stories, tragedies, tales of injustice, and crime. Yet at the end of the day we filter all that down to a few stories on a good day. With 4 utterly pointless candidates for mayor and 32 […]

Cornwall Ontario – Thank you, Paul Wernick, for having the courage to speak out.

Advanced Voting Down Nearly 15% in SD&SG Due to Corruption & Democratic Failure by Jamie Gilcig

Cornwall Ontario – With reports of Advanced Polling down nearly a whopping 15% in SD&SG clearly abuse by local riding teams and Elections Ontario are leading indicators. Instead of advertising for example, where you’re reading this right now, Elections Ontario advertised with US social media companies.   Surely someone should be fired for that? Likewise, the […]

Ottawa Ontario – There have been a lot of media reports on Prime Minister Trudeau’s strange meeting with the Boyle family. So far the story simply doesn’t add up.
