View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Perception is Everything in Politics SEPT 23, 2016

I remember reading some comments from Liberal Senator Keith Davies, otherwise known as the “Rain Maker” for his successful stewardship of several Liberal election campaigns. He stressed that in politics, perception was everything- something this latest generation of Liberals seems to have forgotten. Arrogance and entitlement have always been the downfall of the Liberals, whether […]

SD&SG MP Guy Lauzon Abuses Tax Payers With Partisan Mailer by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 16, 2016

Conservative MP Guy Lauzon issued a new mailer.   The purpose of a mailer generally is to communicate with voters in the riding.  It is done at tax payer’s expense and not of the Conservative Party. The latest mailer, which is a whopping 11×17 inches includes  a whopping four pages in English and French, nearly as […]

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 […]

Trudeau Gov’t Not Being Open & Accountable Over Phoenix Payroll Issue by Keith Beardsley JULY 21, 2016

Trudeau Gov’t Not Being Open & Accountable Over Phoenix Payroll Issue by Keith Beardsley JULY 21, 2016

If you know someone in the Public Service or someone who has recently retired from the government- chances are you know someone who hasn’t been paid or who isn’t receiving the pay and benefits that they are supposed to be getting. We all have friends in that situation. Stop and think for a minute about […]

From Behind the Green Closet Door – Marijuana Dispensaries in Ottawa by Roy Berger July 17, 2016

In choral unison the macabre delirious Kings and Queens of dope , otherwise known as the Federal Marijuana Task Force, obsessed with narcotic fumes screamed in rage, “Get those green n*****s off Parliament Hill!” They put on their Hazmat suits and arc welding masks recently to observe top secret video taped evidence of ten thousand […]

Bill Amell of Lunenberg Thinks South Stormont Council is All Wet LTE  JUNE 28, 2016

What kind of a group of officials do we have in South Stormont council and working in office making decisions? We need to sweep the lot of them out next election! They work on double standards and cost homeowners like me too much money because of their decisions. Why are they suddenly denying clean water […]

CFN Interviews Long Time Ottawa & Cornwall Ontario Commentator JULES PART 1  MAY 15, 2016

CFN has always innovated and led the way in viewer comments in our community.   The Standard Freeholder has nuked their comments section, but CFN has evolved and has a very clear policy. Our most popular commentator has been “Jules”.  She’s had 2,963 comments approved as a viewer, and probably as many not approved because […]

Cornwall Ontario Mayor Gets Free Art for Office While Public Gallery Set to Close After Funding Cut to Zero MAY 11, 2016

Cornwall Ontario Mayor Gets Free Art for Office While Public Gallery Set to Close After Funding Cut to Zero MAY 11, 2016

Cornwall Ontario as a community has historically poorly supported the arts.  With an influx of seniors from communities that do support the arts it makes sense for some of those sports dollars to shift. Sadly, that isn’t the case.  The city’s 36 year old public art gallery, TAG Cornwall, is to close this year after […]

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- […]

Fire Puts Future of Snowdon Theatre in Jeopardy by Kristian Gravenor MARCH 28, 2016

Fire Puts Future of Snowdon Theatre in Jeopardy by Kristian Gravenor MARCH 28, 2016

A Montrealer once penned a famous short story about a neighbourhood that went undetected by municipal bureaucrats. When the top Montreal bureaucrat found out that the whole area had been left undetected due to a lost filing cabinet card, he went to visit it and found a paradise on earth where people got along well […]

Conrad Black: University Decision to Remove John A. Macdonald Statue is Cowardly & Disgraceful MARCH 12, 2016

Canada is suffering from a prolonged pandemic of moral self-flagellation promoted by hemophiliac bleeding hearts and militant native agitators. The latest outburst of it is the recent decision of the governors of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ont., to withdraw from an arrangement to erect statues of all 22 of Canada’s former prime ministers on […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Combat Mission or Liberal BS?  March 8, 2016

It has been fascinating watching the Trudeau Liberals twist and squirm over their definition of combat in Iraq. If you believe their nonsense talk points (which can only be dreamt up in a political staff meeting) our forces on the ground in Iraq are not in a combat role. The Liberals prefer to parse and define […]

Kevin O’Leary Con Leadership Run Opens Language Debate in Canada by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 2, 2016

Kevin O’Leary is taking a page or two from Donald Trump in the US and trying to position himself for a leadership run to replace Stephen Harper for the Conservative Party. Like Trump he’s picking off popular topics that are getting him a lot of press. It’s not rocket science.   Hold out hope to […]
