EDITORIAL – NAFTA Under the Gun – Canada should never be for sale – Jamie Gilcig – Cornwall Ontario – March 10, 2010

It may be time to circle the wagons here in Canada.  A group of politicians in the US are planting the seeds to open the NAFTA trade agreement.

Kennedy, third in the 2006 Liberal leadership race thought an alliance with Quebec’s Stephane Dion in fourth place would beat frontrunner Michael Ignatieff. Kennedy was right and the Liberals ended up with a fourth-best leader. Dion then carried […]

Letter to the Editor – John Milnes – Incompetence and Security – February 28, 2010

Dear Sir: Prime Minister Harper, aided by Luc Lauzon and all the other anti-democracy Conservative Members of Parliament, determined to close down Parliament so they could play around, unimpeded by the opposition.  Everything fell nicely into place. The nightmare of Haiti was to provide a ready made grandstand opportunity and the security at our airports gave them […]

Letter to the Editor – Rebuttal from Ken Smith to Markus Noé – Why Coalitions Rarely Happen in Canadian Politics – February 19, 2010

Stand-alone leadership is what defines the Liberals and Conservatives as main parties. Both main parties secretly fear joining coalitions because it dilutes their image as a main party. Stephen Harper, […]

These cuts will certainly hurt the quality of health care in Cornwall and area. With an aging and growing population, the provincial government should […]
