Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Time to Honour Dorris & Bob Turner & Tiger Tales 032519

Awarded were Gerry Benson, Vera Joyce, Gail Kaneb, Hugh A. MacDougall, Don Mitchell, Susan Rainey, Onagh Ross, William Shearing, Gary Stokes, Lorne Strader, Stan and Betty Vandenbosch, Johnny C. […]

Trudeau Budget Looks like Pre Cursor to SNAP Election Call. by Jamie Gilcig 032019

Trudeau Budget Looks like Pre Cursor to SNAP Election Call. by Jamie Gilcig 032019

It’s amazing how politics work. There are the kool aid drinkers, the partisans, and then the slim amount of folk that will actually listen and read what is being said before making a decision where to park their vote. With Justin Trudeau fighting for his political life because of the SNC Lavalin scandal or #lavscam […]

SD&SG MPP Jim McDonell Tire Fires Autism Incident in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 031919

SD&SG MPP Jim McDonell Tire Fires Autism Incident in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 031919

I’ve only lived in this area since 2004, but something I’ve noticed is that people are not big on being accountable and owning their messes. I know that’s universal, but it’s especially ugly here, especially top down. When MPP Jim McDonell made a total boob of himself using the term “nazi” regarding the former Liberal […]

Clement Council Waste Plan We be an Expensive Disaster by Jamie Gilcig 030819

Clement Council Waste Plan We be an Expensive Disaster by Jamie Gilcig 030819

Ugh snowflakes. Listening to Carolyne Hebert frankly gives me gas. Sadly, we get the government we collectively deserve and a rigged pro labour election has seen her and other snowflakes rubber stamp management budgets and plan. Starting April it appears that we will have a six bag limit in Cornwall per house for Garbage. And […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – The Care Centre, Heritage Fair & Glengarry Fencibles Bishop’s House Project – 030619

Black and white TV and rabbit ears!! Those were the days of great comedy , westerns and other shows , all suitable for family viewing. None of the shows had any vulgarity so all the family could spread the rabbit ears as far as they would go and watch our favourites on TV. I loved […]

Justin Trudeau Can’t Win Next Election & Should Resign over #lavscam by Jamie Gilcig 022819

Justin Trudeau Can’t Win Next Election & Should Resign over #lavscam by Jamie Gilcig 022819

It’s sad watching the circus that has become the #lavscam scandal. Canadians are getting a rare glimpse, and a sanitized one at that, on the inner workings of government. There is nothing surprising regarding the testimony of former AG Jody Wilson Raybould. It also highlights the degree of Quebec corruption that clearly will not play […]

#CCPS Spowart & Aikman Get 2019 Hypocrite of the Year Award for Pink Shirt Anti Bullying by Jamie Gilcig 022719

#CCPS Spowart & Aikman Get 2019 Hypocrite of the Year Award for Pink Shirt Anti Bullying by Jamie Gilcig 022719

There’s hypocrisy and then there’s the brand of hypocrisy that is part of the Cornwall Ontario Bully Culture. When asked about an incident of alleged bullying, with a racial slant, that occured in his pre police days, this is what Chief Aikman sent to this newspaper. Mr. Gilcig, I received your email of November 22, 2018. […]

Magnificent SNC-Lavalin Scandal is Absurdly Canadian by Conrad Black 022319

Magnificent SNC-Lavalin Scandal is Absurdly Canadian by Conrad Black 022319

This is too innocuous for the Americans, too wholesome for Latin America, too complicated for the Swiss and Scandinavians The SNC-Lavalin affair is the quintessential Canadian controversy. It is alleged by unnamed sources that the former justice minister and attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was pressured to order her officials to assess fines rather than prosecute […]

Seniors Situation Room  by Dawn Ford – First Dementia Villages in Canada 021919

These snowy days remind me of the winters we had when we were kids. I can’t remember too many days though that the schools were closed unless it was a very big storm. Bet we would have liked that. We walked back and forth to school and attended from 9 to 4pm, going home for […]

Jody 1 Justin 0 – Butts Resigns from Trudeau PMO by Jamie Gilcig 021919

Jody 1 Justin 0 – Butts Resigns from Trudeau PMO by Jamie Gilcig 021919

Hell hath no scorn like…… Gerald Butts has resigned. This is mammoth. By legal stance it of course is not an indication of any guilt, but by political standards it’s a fart breath away from going full McGuinty, who oddly enough was where Gerald Butts cut his teeth politically. It’s odd in 2019; that the […]

Conrad Black: Trudeau Liberals Bungled the Overblown SNC-Lavalin Affair 021619

Conrad Black: Trudeau Liberals Bungled the Overblown SNC-Lavalin Affair 021619

By accepting her change of positions, Wilson-Raybould has largely disqualified herself from complaining now about the motives for her so-called demotion The SNC-Lavalin matter has become a showcase for a panoply of media and political attitudes of widely varying levels of justification. To review some of the elements, there was nothing wrong, practically or ethically, […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley –  Justice Committee on SNC-Lavalin Scandal Goes Nowhere – 021419

Yesterday the drama on the Hill unfolded as expected when the Justice Committee met on the SNC-Lavalin scandal. Everyone knew opposition MPs would be demanding answers to the SNC-Lavalin mess while the Liberals would try and stonewall any investigation. Other than a lot of phony outrage, did anyone actually expect the Liberals to allow an […]

Justin Trudeau’s SUNNY DAYS Turn Cloudy as Jody Wilson-Raybould SNC Lavalin Scandal Blows Up by Jamie Gilcig 021419

Justin Trudeau’s SUNNY DAYS Turn Cloudy as Jody Wilson-Raybould SNC Lavalin Scandal Blows Up by Jamie Gilcig 021419

There’s a certain irony about writing this piece on Valentine’s Day as it appears for many their Love for Justin Trudeau has gone stone cold. Most don’t remember that JT was in 3rd place trailing Thomas Mulcair and Stephen Harper at one time in the last election run when he and his team started passing […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Is Thomas Mulcair Right About NDP Votes Turning Green?

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Is Thomas Mulcair Right About NDP Votes Turning Green?

Back on February 4th Tom Mulcair was speculating that some NDP supporters might think the Green Party deserved a second look. It is an interesting thought. Should it happen, it could seriously damage the election chances of the NDP, and it has the potential to damage the Liberals as well. The NDP is in bad shape- […]

Garden Girl – Beginning of the 2019 Garden Dream 020519

This is probably my 10th year playing in the dirt. It all started with a small herb garden one year at a friend’s cottage in the Kawarthas. The next year, the lavender all came back, with the chives, and the mint. This is where I learned that mint cannot be trusted to stay where you […]
