Hey, it’s 2020! Let’s go back to the 50’s! Quebec Conservative former staffer to both Stephen Harper and Jean Charest Provincially let loose a barrage of homophobia to ram home the point that the Conservative Party in Canada has issues with the LGBT community in spite of what some leadership hopefuls have to say. Emphasizing […]

Royal Canadian Legion Grandstands – Revokes Membership for Stolen Valour But Won’t Name Them 012020

With falling membership the Legion is fighting for its survival. Stolen Valour has been an issue of selective justice for them and in the case of the two recent Cornwall cases, cover ups. Both members were on the Executive of the local Legion prior to being outed. CFN reached out to the Legion to confirm […]

MPP Amanda Simard Throws Hissy Fit – Walks Over to Join Liberals After Francophone Gig Snub.  By Jamie Gilcig 011620

Bratty Conservative MPP Amanda Simard, who caused a huge storm against Premier Doug Ford, has walked the floor. Ironically the decision comes after another of those wacky corrupt Burke women was given a plum gig that it appears Ms Simard was expecting to get. I mean, it must feel bad, losing out to someone from […]

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, you owe the American Government an Apology. By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli #uspoli 011420

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, you owe the American Government an Apology.   By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli #uspoli 011420

It’s been a hot mess watching the tragedy play out in Iran. The shooting down of an Ukranian airplane with 57 Canadians out of 173 souls was an act of terrorism and murder. While some are calling it an accident, the plane clearly flew from Iran. IE, flight control in Iran knew it was in […]

MP Eric Duncan Impotent On Dam Water Issues in SD&SG. By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli 010820

Media reports offer some weak apple sauce to residents that are seeing some strange sites along our waterway. The releasing of waters, which many are of the opinion are being done at the expense of our area and in a heavy handed manner that is impacting our fish and bird populations, have left some of […]

Keith Beardsley Wants to See  A Strong Woman Run for the Conservative Leadership – View From the Hill 010720 #cdnpoli

The Conservative leadership race is off and running. More like a pegged-legged sailor than a sprinter, but at least they are moving. The party is carrying a lot of negative baggage from the 2019 campaign. It will have to do a damn good job of persuading Canadians that they represent a modern Conservative view that […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Will Trudeau Pounce on PC Leadership Void? #cdnpoli 122219

If you love comedy you will enjoy following the Conservative Party after they lost the 2019 election. Over decades of working with and for them, I often heard them say how the country should be run more like a business. Well they can’t even run their own party and if their party was a business, […]

Rona Ambrose is the Only Possible Leader Able to Defeat Trudeau for Conservatives.  By Jamie Gilcig 121319 #cdnpoli

Andrew Scheer lost to Justin Trudeau. No need to rehash the high end baggage that Trudeau and his Liberals carried into this last Federal Election, but it’s clear to say that a party only one term out of office with a strong base should’ve earned an easy majority. Does that Conservative brand have issues? Yes, […]

We Get Letters :  Michael Labelle Says Goodbye Cornwall, Not Been Nice 121319

Editor’s Note. Mike was born in Cornwall. Went off for his career, and attempted to retire to Cornwall having purchased a home in Riverdale. Hi Jamie. I thought I should make it official for you. I am no longer a resident of Cornwall. Before I trash them I should give the thumbs up. 1/ the […]

We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko on Calibration of Smart Meters & Cornwall Water Meters 120519

Water Meters: OK what makes Cornwall so unique to have one of the highest water consumption per capita in all of Canada (ref.: Based on the city’s research, people across Canada use about 250 liters of water per person per day while in Cornwall it’s about 450 liters.”). How was this figured obtained – was […]

Cornwall Residential Water Meters A Desperate Cash Grab. By Jamie Gilcig #cwlpoli 120519

Cornwall Residential Water Meters A Desperate Cash Grab.  By Jamie Gilcig #cwlpoli 120519

The most stunning thing about Cornwall Politics is that the sheep are stunningly silent until it’s too late. Facing an anticipated 7% tax rate hike, city management and council have been flirting and floating having “Smart Water Meters” for the approximately 16,000 buildings in Cornwall. The basic argument for such meters is usually conservation. Numbers […]

Conrad Black: The IPCC isn’t quite as apocalyptic as Greta Thunberg 120219 #grnpoli

I am not trying to twist the IPCC’s meaning. It clearly acknowledges that an acceleration (and a slight acceleration at that) in global warming is not certain and if it occurs at all, it will not be solely due to human activities. The Green Terror grips Canada. Everyone can agree that environmental pollution should be […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Time For Andrew Scheer to Take a Walk in the Snow #cdnpoli 120119

Back in 1984, Pierre Elliot Trudeau went for his famous walk in the snow and then announced his resignation. Perhaps it is time for Andrew Scheer to do the same. It is time for Scheer to put his ego aside and consider the impact of his staying on as leader on the party, his family […]

Fraser Institute: ON Gov’t Workers Paid Over 10% More Than Private Sector Workers. 112819 #ONPOLI

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2019 Government employees in Ontario received 10.3 per cent higher wages on average than comparable workers in the private sector last year, and enjoyed much more generous non-wage benefits, too, finds a new study by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank. “Bringing government-sector compensation in line with the […]

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley – New Cabinet, Same Trudeau 112219 #cdnpoli

When does 35+2= 0 That isn’t new math, that is the sum total of Trudeau’s new cabinet. Adding two extra ministers hasn’t helped a bit and the deadwood remains, maybe shuffled around a bit, but still there. Let’s look at 3 examples: Mona Fortier is the new Minister of Middle Class Prosperity. Now there is […]

Scotia Bank Call Centre Folds More Job Decay in Cornwall Ontario. By Jamie Gilcig 112219

Scores, Lowe’s, and now the Scotia Bank call centre. It’s becoming clear that Cornwall Ontario simply isn’t a place to succeed in business. Normally closures come after Christmas, but there are starting to flood before. A weak employee pool, corrupt and incompetent City Hall, scandals, high electrical rates, and runaway taxes simply are not good […]

We Get Letters – Stephen Czajko – Another Business Closing in Cornwall 112119

Another Business Closing : It’s sad, another loss for workers and bigger unemployment lines. In parallel, Cornwall at least on paper gets another black eye. Perception all around will be that Cornwall cannot keep business afloat. Most of us suspect though that two (2) big box hardware stores in Cornwall was ill conceived at the […]
