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 […]

Canadian Trucker Convoy Protest is Domestic Terrorism. By Jamie Gilcig – What Will Trudeau & Ford Do About it?

January 31, 2022 – As many of my fellow Canadians I’ve been appalled by what I’ve seen and heard in Ottawa this weekend. Branded as a rally of Truckers upset at Vaccine mandates it clearly has been a orchestrated rage against Canadian Democracy and clear act of Domestic Terrorism actually funded by outside sources. With […]

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley – O’Toole Gag Order on Bill 21 is Weak Sauce

December 19, 2021 – If media reports are correct, O’Toole has prohibited his MPs from speaking out publicly about Quebec’s racist Bill 21. While O’Toole says he is personally opposed to this law, he refuses to say that it should be challenged in court. Instead, he lets it continue to fester as a Quebec based […]

DECEMBER 10, 2021 – As the issue of the teacher in Chelsea who was released for wearing a hijab heats up here is an interesting comparison. John Diefenbaker (former Prime Minister) I am a Canadian, a free Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship God in my own way, free to stand for […]

View From the Hill. By Keith Beardsley – Can O’Toole & Conservatives Get Vaxxed for Self Destruction?

NOVEMBER 24, 2021 – For over three months the Conservatives have been dealing with one issue that they can’t seem to put to bed. Pretty much every story on the Conservative Party has focused on just one issue- vaccinations. It is always a negative story- there is nothing positive in for the Conservatives, no matter […]

Et Tu Denise? Cons Going Full Caesar on Erin O’Toole.  View From the Hill. By Keith Beardlsey

NOVEMBER 16, 2021 – Yesterday one of our unelected senators decided to try to kick start the process to force a leadership review of O’Toole. Denise Batters was appointed by Harper on January 25, 2013. Today however, at a time when we need unity to control the agenda in the House and when we need […]

Why the Conservatives Can’t Beat Justin Trudeau. By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli

SEPTEMBER 20, 2021 – So it’s election day and Justin Trudeau is flirting with a Majority victory. The blessing is that it’s been a short election, but for those that truly care about having a strong democracy there should be much cause for concern. Small media outlets like this one have not had any ad […]

SD&SG Green Jeanie Warnock Only Local Candidate to Sign UBI Pledge. By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli #BasicIncomeNow

September 18, 2021 – Many Canadians are recognizing the possible benefits of having a Universal Basic Income (UBI). A movement has started and 124 candidates in 108 ridings in this current election have taken the pledge to move this forward. #BasicIncomeNow It’s a simple pledge and very clear. If elected, I pledge to actively support […]

View From the Hill – By Keith Beardsley – Watching the Candidates During the Last Week of the Pandemic Election #cdnpoli

SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 – As we enter the final week of our pandemic election, here is some advice from an old political pro- take a deep breath and relax. Do your own research. Dig deep, ignore the media hype. The media will push poll after poll at you- after all they are paying big dollars […]

English Debate Highlights Canada’s Political Mess.  Who Won? By Jamie Gilcig

September 10, 2021 – Did you watch the debate? All of it? Did you watch the French debates? Do you think anything in the debate really can change the final vote results? These are questions asked every election. But my job as a journalist is to watch the silly things. As a jaded old white […]

It’s time for a $1,000 Tax Credit Covid-19 for ALL Front Line Workers in Canada. By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli

September 5, 2021 – I, like many of you reading this, was outraged by the selfish, ignorant, and frankly criminal acts of anti vax, anti mask, anti brain #covidiots protesting at hospitals here in Canada. The irony that these people, when they catch Covid and the unvaccinated, are those needing hospitals the most during this […]

Team O’Toole Going Full Trump?  And How Anti Vax is Ontario Premier Doug Ford?  By Jamie Gilcig

AUGUST 28, 2021 – Scary times and scary days during this election. With Covid-19 numbers rising it appears that the Anti Vax faction is starting to boil over. Based mostly on delusional ignorance, anger at just about every other issue, and in many cases simple mental illness, most Canadians are facing a Delta wave fueled […]

MP Eric Duncan & The NDP Don’t Care About CFN Viewers. By Jamie Gilcig

AUGUST 25, 2021 – It’s always bewildering to see how ignorant and petty some of the political classes can be. Or why those with the thinnest skin are attracted to politics? I mean, if you can’t take legitimate criticism or questions from the media perhaps politics isn’t for you? CFN, and yours truly have been […]
