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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

After every election loss there is always a lot of soul searching and internal party reviews and of course blame. Needless to say, the Conservative Party is doing that now. But before the “leaders in waiting” start sharpening their knives, they should first decide on just what and who the Conservative Party represents. Dennis Matthews […]

View From the Hill. By Keith Beardsley – Election Aftermath & Messy Days Coming #CDNPOLI 102219

Election 2019 has come and gone, and the aftermath will be felt for years to come. Other than the defeat of Lisa Raitt and Ralph Goodale I wasn’t surprised by the results. With such a poor showing in Alberta and Saskatchewan, watch for Trudeau to appoint Goodale to the Senate and make him a cabinet […]

Election Day After a Dismal Campaign Period – View From the Hill. By Keith Beardsley 102119 #CDNPOLI

Election Day is finally here. In spite of a dismal election campaign by all of the parties exercise your democratic right and vote. It was one of those campaigns where voters wish a POX on all of them. People I talk to and that includes several partisans, made up their minds walking into the voting […]

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley – Trudeau Wearing Bullet Proof Vest @ Rally Not a Sign of a Strong Canadian Democracy 101319 #cdnpoli

At last night’s rally, Trudeau was surrounded by bodyguards and it is reported that he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Like him or not, this is not a healthy sign for democracy in Canada. No politician or their family should ever feel threated. However, it is a sign of the times as faceless people hiding […]

Election Leadership Debate 2019 : Canada Loses.  By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli

What an utter farce this election has been. The format for what should’ve been the “Big” debate was a mess. The format blew chunks. Canadians needed and some actually wanted to hear from the candidates, but the Consortium of media outlets that put this together seemed more focused on gender politics than Canadian politics. If […]

Impotent Andrew Scheer Fumbling as Liberals Flirt with Majority Win.  By Jamie Gilcig  #CDNPOLI 100719

The election that nobody seems to care about trundles on. This will be an historic loss if Andrew Scheer gives The Trudeau Liberals a majority win. With a history of broken election promises and gross hypocrisy the Conservatives simply have failed to deliver a strong game with much of the blame landing on Mr. Scheer. […]

Conrad Black : Trudeau is a Hypocrite & Weak Leaders 092319

If the government generally was playing it straight and not trying to gain re-election by defaming its opponents, Trudeau could have expressed regret, claimed he’d learned and moved on The election campaign to date has been an exercise in idiocy and cowardice. It is obviously embarrassing for Justin Trudeau to have had to admit to […]

Could This Be a Solution for Akwesasne?  Property Rights and Prosperity: A Case Study of Westbank First Nation 091719

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — By establishing individual property rights, the Westbank First Nation in British Columbia’s southern Interior has become entrepreneurial and prosperous, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank. “Westbank has created an environment where band members can create wealth that benefits both the […]

Who Won the First Canadian 2019 Election Leaders Debate?  By Jamie Gilcig #CDNPOLI 091319

Justin Trudeau skipped the first leadership debate. It’s a sign of how bad things are in Canadian Politics and the protection of our Democracy. That he didn’t finish last even though he didn’t attend says a lot. Andrew Scheer did better than this writer expected. His people got him to grin less, and he was […]

Prime Minister Doug Ford in 2023 or Sooner?  By Jamie Gilcig 091219 #cdnpoli

Doug Ford is in the cat seat right now. With an expected Trudeau Minority win he just has to glide through this election without tipping the pot. While he’s come on hard early in his Ontario mandate, he’s also shown a willingness to reconsider positions and govern the province, and not just his party, which […]

The silly season has arrived. Normally I would reserve that for the so called “news reports” we receive over the summer, but there is an election on October 19th. Party war rooms are already hard at work, with coffee drenched staffers pouring out hundreds of Twitter tweets, smack downs and stupid comments daily. Gone are […]

Boy that debate should be scintillating. Justin Trudeau and his team may know something Canadians don’t? With a tight National race every riding is important. While favored to win; Eric Duncan certainly is no shoe in vote and the riding’s history is such that dropping in a candidate would’ve been a good option. Team Trudeau […]

It’s funny being a journalist in 2019. My inbox recently started to flood with releases by both the Liberals and Conservatives. Smart. We not only own a large local audience, but are have great pools of viewers in Cities like Ottawa, Toronto, and even Montreal. The internet is content driven and we provide content that […]
