Seniors Situation Room – By Dawn Ford – Has it really been ten years?

August 5, 2022 – Canada Day had come and gone . Some seniors were talking about the ‘old days’, many moons ago when the fathers would bring the fireworks to the curb outside their homes and light them up. All down the street were big blasts of colour as the fireworks hit the air. Some […]

Can Pierre Poilievre Beat Justin Trudeau in the Next Canadian Election?  By Jamie Gilcig

Yes kiddies, that’s where we’re heading. Reading and watching partisan media wogs has been a lot of fun as the leadership evolves. Justin doesn’t seem to be bothered. He just left to Costa Rica for a vacation which is not a politically astute move. Lord knows everyone needs a vacation, but surely a Staycation would’ve […]

As Ontario’s Healthcare System Crumbles It’s Time to Think Outside of the Box.   Tax Free Crisis Shifts.  By Jamie Gilcig #ohip #medicare #onpoli #cdnpoli

July 27, 2022 – One of the biggest things the Covid-19 Pandemic has done is show how truly weak and messed up our healthcare system is. This isn’t something that can easily be fixed. Money alone will not solve the issues which impact different provinces differently depending on their systems. In Cornwall, the city just […]

Freeland Stiffs Canadians with New Inflationary Action Announcement. #cdnpoli By Jamie Gilcig

June 17, 2022 – For those on fixed incomes, or lower incomes, or working class incomes, or middle class incomes, the announcement by Liberal Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland is a slap to the face. Many of its facets are not new, but already in her last budgets. Many of the facets are promises down the […]

Melanie Joly Digs a Deeper Hole over Russia Mess VIEW FROM THE HILL by KEITH BEARDSLEY

JUNE 15, 2022 – The present Minister of Foreign Affairs, Melanie Joly, needs to learn when to be quiet. It is enough that a bureaucrat in her department attended a Russian Embassy reception when Canada is supporting Ukraine against the Russian invasion. But to keep insisting the buck stops with her and she didn’t know […]

Conservative Leadership New Membership Number Shell Game can Backfire VIEW FROM THE HILL by Keith Beardsley

JUNE 13, 2022 – Here we go again, teams of partisans backing various candidates shouting out their membership numbers in the Conservative Leadership race. While we all know this is a fool’s game, those partisans buried in their bunkers think this is important and in effect are shouting out “look at me, aren’t we great”. […]

Patrick Brown Comment Highlights US Shift in Canadian Politics During Conservative Leadership Race.  VIEW FROM THE HILL by Keith Beardsley

JUNE 13, 2022 – Patrick Brown’s comment that he wouldn’t run for the Conservatives if Poilievre was the leader was quite frankly dumb. From a strategic viewpoint he gains nothing,first round but loses a lot. He comes across as a bit of a sore loser and he hasn’t even lost yet. Maybe he forgot that […]

May 21, 2022 – Cornwall is starting to reel at the loss of a critical health service. The McConnell walk in clinic, situated right next to the hospital, is shutting down leaving thousands of area residents at a loss for healthcare and surely what will add more pressure to hospital emergency services. Cornwall, a failing […]

Did You Watch the Ontario Leaders Debate?  Did You Know There’s an Election?  By Jamie Gilcig

May 17, 2022 – I was tweeting today that there were more of we media and pundits watching the leadership debate last night than viewers. Ol Steve Paikin & the incredibly hot Althia Raj moderated a motley mess which showed how truly putrid our leadership is across the board, and asks the question why can’t […]

Seniors Situation Room – Happy 106th Birthday to Edna Dorey & Happy Mother’s Day! By Dawn Ford

May 4, 2022 – Well, we’ve had our April showers, so here come our May flowers. I saw a wee little crocus peeking it’s head and tiny leaves through a muddy spot. So teeny-weeny yet making it through the earth. Beautiful to see and watch each day as it grows into a lovely little flower. […]

Yes, it’s time to Boycott Shopping in Cornwall Ontario until Covid Mask Mandates return.  By Jamie Gilcig

April 4, 2022 – Sadly I work in a town that has been #covid derelict since day one. Part of it is our $400K man Paul Roumeliotis who refused to have Covid laws enforced, and allowed Randy Hillier to have multiple rallies on the grounds of our local health unit. This area has one of […]

Doug Ford Gas Tax Redux is Blatant Hypocrisy & Vote Pandering

April 4, 2022 – For many of us struggling through Covid in Ontario it feels like the Ford Government secretly supports the Randy Hillier crowd. Horrible take back of mask mandates as a sixth wave of a World Wide pandemic that has killed over 5 million people and you can’t even shop safely. The public […]

FEBRUARY 21, 2022 – Here we go again, yet another Conservative leadership race. Maybe we will get it right this time.
