Failures of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Process by Doug George-Kanentiio 042419

Akwesasne Mohawk Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, that $60,000,000 effort designed to address the “cultural genocide” we, the former ‘inmates’ of the residential schools experienced is a failure.  Since it began operations in 2008 the Commission has crossed Canada, heard the testimony of 6,500 people and published two volumes of its findings. It has made […]

Justin Trudeau Legal #lavscam Bluff Called by Andrew Scheer by Jamie Gilcig 040719

Justin Trudeau Legal #lavscam Bluff Called by Andrew Scheer by Jamie Gilcig 040719

Yes, I’d love to play poker with our Prime Minister any day. Although much younger, I probably would be fine boxing a round or two with him as well because my grandfather, who was a prize fighter in the 1929’s, when you only got paid if you won, taught me about things like this. Apparently […]

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 […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – What’s Justin Trudeau Got to Hide?  031319

So, what do the Liberals have to hide? It certainly looks like they need to hide something when you consider how fast they shut down the emergency meeting of the Justice Committee. At this point it looks like Trudeau has decided to double down and dig in and simply take his lumps on the SNC-Lavalin […]

The Liberals have stumbled their way into a disaster by Conrad Black 031019

Conrad Black: The Liberals have stumbled their way into a disaster Justin Trudeau can still clean it up, by addressing the real issues: whatever is the right thing for prosecutors to do can still be done, but the government has foolishly straddled a serrated political knife-edge As the SNC-Lavalin controversy is inexplicably fumbled, a few […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – A Snap Election for the Trudeau Liberals? 030219

What an amazing day yesterday! A brutal day for the Liberal Party and especially staff in the PMO. Jody Wilson-Raybould’s testimony was devastating and no matter how the Liberals now attempt to discredit her testimony and no matter how many attack dogs they send out to dispute what the former Attorney General stated- they can […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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

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?

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- […]

Eric Duncan Not a Gimme for Conservative Nod in SD&G by Jamie Gilcig 020119

No surprise that Eric Duncan wanted to get into the race quickly to replace the thug and corrupt bully that Guy Lauzon was. As his former #1 Duncan played a huge role for the Big Blue Machine in this region, but that machine has seen a few wheels fall off over the years. Not enough […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Trudeau Gov’t Does a Mini Shuffle 011419

A busy day in politics as Trudeau does a mini shuffle. Some moves were surprising, some not so much. Kicking O’Regan out of Veterans Affairs was simply a survival move, IE save Trudeau’s buddy and put him somewhere else and hope he doesn’t screw up there as well. Personally, I think he will be just […]
