Are Stephen Days Numbered? UnTendered Contracts for Billion Dollar Boondoggle?? What do you think Canada? Cornwall Ontario – June 15, 2010

Cornwall ON – Is Stephen Harper a spent force?   Yes, he’s Prime Minister of a minority government; but it’s been a maligned government which has done far too much to sow disunity in our country.   So much disunity that the thought of coalitions start to make more and more sense.

Harper issuing Gag Orders? View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Cornwall Ontario – June 8, 2010

Cornwall ON – It’s quite amusing to see the media response to a so called “gag order” issued by PMO. This email told MPs not to discuss home mortgages with two reporters working on a story.
