View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – The Bar Has Been Set by Justin Trudeau

CFN – Conservative and NDP fundraisers must be patting themselves on the back today and thanking Justin Trudeau for their good fortune. With Trudeau’s pronouncement that he plans on winning a 170 seats and a majority in the next election, the fundraising letters to NDP and Conservative supporters almost write themselves. Nothing rallies an organization and […]

Ten Seats in Quebec for the Harper Conservatives in Next Election? Keith Beardsley View From the Hill

CFN – Don’t you just love the summer doldrums and some of the political speculation that abounds in the news? One such story around speculation that the Conservatives under Harper could win ten seats in Quebec in the next election was certainly attention getting.

Justin Trudeau & Liberals Make Play for SD&SG On Canada Day 2014! by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario – Justin Trudeau is stopping in Alexandria and Cornwall Ontario on Canada Day.  With a year until his first election shot at becoming Prime Minister of Canada every seat will count.

CFN – Justin Trudeau probably shocked his Senate caucus colleagues more than the voting public today when he announced he was removing Liberal senators from the Liberal caucus, thereby limiting the caucus to elected members of parliament.

CFN – Our MPs finally stopped squabbling long enough to agree to depart from Ottawa for their home constituencies. I doubt too many Canadians will miss Question Period or for that matter the attacks and counter-attacks that have become the daily pattern when the House of Commons is sitting. Other than the Senate scandal, Ottawa […]

Mike Duffy Stephen Harper & Justin Trudeau – What an odd scent in the air by Jamie Gilcig

CFN – It’s funny reading the latest on the Senate scandal, Stephen Harper’s possible political demise, and Justin Trudeau’s ascent. It’s almost like it’s a bad script. What we do know.
