View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Keeping it Simple While Hammering Away at Trudeau in QP – 042618

Ottawa Ontario – Keeping a government off-guard and on the defensive is one of the primary functions of an opposition party’s attack team. We usually see this take place in the daily Question Period.

Conrad Black – Less Selfies, Better Government for Canadian PM Justin Trudeau 031418

Toronto Ontario – It is too early to judge how profoundly Justin Trudeau and his government have been undermined by the debacle of the visit to India, which cannot be laid off by scapegoating Indian and Canadian officials. Coming on the heels of the “peoplekind” fiasco, it has created a worldwide credibility problem for this […]

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. Prime Minister’s just don’t meet with anyone who requests a meeting and it doesn’t matter who that person is or their background.  In most cases, a Prime […]

Andrew Scheer Fails Allowing Scandalized Guy Lauzon to Run Again in 2019 for SD&SG

Cornwall Ontario – While Andrew Scheer, or Harper -2.0, is embracing MP Guy Lauzon’s announcement that he’ll be running for re-election in 2019 it’s clear that his party is dropping the ball locally. It would have been easy enough to allow the corrupt and scandalized Lauzon to ooze away into retirement, but they have chosen […]

Finance Minister Morneau Dead Man Walking -View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley 113017

Ottawa Ontario – Finance Minister Morneau has a habit of walking from one political disaster to another- essentially stepping in one cow patty after another- and for no reason other than his own foolishness.

Warren Kinsella Writes Open Letter to Minister Melanie Joly After Twitter Block 112717

Dear Minister Joly: May I call you Melanie? You’ve blocked my access to your ministerial Twitter account, so please forgive the formality of an open letter. I sense that I’ve upset you, which concerns me deeply. Let’s leave aside, for a moment, the propriety of a public servant (that’s you) blocking the access of one […]

Conrad Black Marvels at Quebec Economic Policy Reversal in Canada 102017

Conrad Black: Quebec is now the beacon of astute economic policy in this country While Quebec becomes an economic leader, most of English Canada is waddling through the wet cement of applied social democratic truisms. Quebec is outpacing Canada economically, for the first time since the piping days of Maurice Duplessis. Under his authoritarian guidance […]

Silver Spoons Morneau & Trudeau Define Liberal Arrogance by Keith Beardsley 090217

Ottawa Ontario – Liberal arrogance will be Justin’s downfall, just as it was for his father and other Liberal government’s. For those who have been around for a while, we all remember Liberal government’s breaking major election promises, not just the minor ones that can be set aside or postponed for economic reasons.
