View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley – Trudeau Wearing Bullet Proof Vest @ Rally Not a Sign of a Strong Canadian Democracy 101319 #cdnpoli

At last night’s rally, Trudeau was surrounded by bodyguards and it is reported that he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Like him or not, this is not a healthy sign for democracy in Canada. No politician or their family should ever feel threated. However, it is a sign of the times as faceless people hiding […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Art, Charity, & Thanks for Paramedics 100919

Hand washing is paramount now that the flu season will be upon us. I read in a few articles that the problem is that we don’t wash our hands long enough. It was suggested that when washing with soap and good warm water to sing the “Happy Birthday” song – two verses and also to […]

Election Leadership Debate 2019 : Canada Loses.  By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli

What an utter farce this election has been. The format for what should’ve been the “Big” debate was a mess. The format blew chunks. Canadians needed and some actually wanted to hear from the candidates, but the Consortium of media outlets that put this together seemed more focused on gender politics than Canadian politics. If […]

Impotent Andrew Scheer Fumbling as Liberals Flirt with Majority Win. By Jamie Gilcig #CDNPOLI 100719

Impotent Andrew Scheer Fumbling as Liberals Flirt with Majority Win.  By Jamie Gilcig  #CDNPOLI 100719

The election that nobody seems to care about trundles on. This will be an historic loss if Andrew Scheer gives The Trudeau Liberals a majority win. With a history of broken election promises and gross hypocrisy the Conservatives simply have failed to deliver a strong game with much of the blame landing on Mr. Scheer. […]

Education Action & Strike Call Are Reasons to Look @ the Future of Education in Ontario.  By Jamie Gilcig 100519 #ONPOLI

This writer was shocked this week and it takes a lot to shock someone as jaded as myself. Number 7. Do not administer medication? Really? Social media was littered with reports of children being forced to eat lunch at their desks with some allegations of them having to sit on the hall floors and eat. […]

Yes, it is time to talk Policing in Cornwall. By Jamie Gilcig 092719 #CPS

Yes, it is time to talk Policing in Cornwall. By Jamie Gilcig 092719 #CPS

So the official mouth pieces for the city are floating a piece with the Police Brotherhood, surprise, surprise, wanting more officers hired. They want a discussion. And this writer agrees that there needs to be a discussion, because of the end of the day there are valid concerns and questions. I think it’s safe to […]

Conrad Black : Trudeau is a Hypocrite & Weak Leaders 092319

If the government generally was playing it straight and not trying to gain re-election by defaming its opponents, Trudeau could have expressed regret, claimed he’d learned and moved on The election campaign to date has been an exercise in idiocy and cowardice. It is obviously embarrassing for Justin Trudeau to have had to admit to […]

Cornwall Cat Hating Mayor Bernadette Clement Calls Special Council Meeting After Hot Reaction to Wood Fire Pit Burn Ban. By Jamie Gilcig 091319

Flipper Clement blinked fast after huge amounts of public backlash for the utterly unprofessional and backwards circus this past week that saw her council vote 8-3 in favor of banning back yard wood fire pits and chimeneas. In what clearly is a by law issue she and her council continued their rampage of curtailing people’s […]

Who Won the First Canadian 2019 Election Leaders Debate? By Jamie Gilcig #CDNPOLI 091319

Who Won the First Canadian 2019 Election Leaders Debate?  By Jamie Gilcig #CDNPOLI 091319

Justin Trudeau skipped the first leadership debate. It’s a sign of how bad things are in Canadian Politics and the protection of our Democracy. That he didn’t finish last even though he didn’t attend says a lot. Andrew Scheer did better than this writer expected. His people got him to grin less, and he was […]

Prime Minister Doug Ford in 2023 or Sooner? By Jamie Gilcig 091219 #cdnpoli

Prime Minister Doug Ford in 2023 or Sooner?  By Jamie Gilcig 091219 #cdnpoli

Doug Ford is in the cat seat right now. With an expected Trudeau Minority win he just has to glide through this election without tipping the pot. While he’s come on hard early in his Ontario mandate, he’s also shown a willingness to reconsider positions and govern the province, and not just his party, which […]

The Alzheimer Society is having a month long campaign to fundraise as September 21st is World Alzheimer Day. They are using the “hashtag” #GoBlueForAlz and asking people to wear blue, take a photo and send it to the Alzheimer Society to promote their campaign and help create a welcoming community for dementia. Check out their […]

Cat Hating Mayor Bernadette Clement & Council Vote Against Backyard Wood Fire Pits in Cornwall. By Jamie Gilcig 091019

Thee’s nothing like the crackle of real wood in a chimenea or wood pit. With no real cultural activity in the city other than cover bands and drag nights, weekend fires are a chance for friends and family to enjoy some time together. Some of the best nights I’ve had in this city were around […]

Sunday Bus Debate in Cornwall Ontario – Here are 2 Solutions.  By Jamie Gilcig 090619 #cwlpoli

When I ran for mayor of this odd city one of my platform concepts was to create free busing in the city, seven days per week. The idea was to create a three year pilot project and shake down the province and the Feds. From the numbers I’d crunched it was clear that the status […]

My Vote is Up for Grabs in the Canadian Federal Election in October. By Jamie Gilcig 090219

It’s funny being a journalist in 2019. My inbox recently started to flood with releases by both the Liberals and Conservatives. Smart. We not only own a large local audience, but are have great pools of viewers in Cities like Ottawa, Toronto, and even Montreal. The internet is content driven and we provide content that […]

Always nice to have a party. Good food. Friends. Laughter. And in some cases recognition of work well done. In this photo are some tenants at the Beek Lindsay Seniors Residence who surprised Claudette Quesnel with a beautiful card and gift in recognition of her volunteer gardening work this year. There were 24 residents at […]

Liberal Hopeful Heather Megill Polls Worse Than STD.  By Jamie Gilcig 082819 #cdnpoli

The local Liberal riding association still has not rolled out a candidate for the October Federal election. It’s an interesting paradigm. With local thug Guy Lauzon retiring his long time flunky, Eric Duncan, is running in his place. Duncan is a very rare out of the closet Conservative candidate. Ironically the buzz has been tepid, […]

Duncan Trotted Out as Token Gay Voice for Scheer in CBC Spin Story on Gay Marriage Comments. By Jamie Gilcig 082819

Most political Canadians know that there’s been a historic glass ceiling for Gay Conservatives with political aspirations. Ask John Baird. Ask Scott Brison who walked over to the Liberals so he could comfortably be who he is. The Liberals rolled out some vintage video of Scheer. It’s politics baby! That’s how it works. To be […]
