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

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 […]

Eric Duncan Just Won SD&SG as Liberals Fold and Run Heather Megill in Federal Election 090519 #cdnpoli

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 […]

My Vote is Up for Grabs in the Canadian Federal Election in October. By Jamie Gilcig 090219

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 […]

Liberal Hopeful Heather Megill Polls Worse Than STD.  By Jamie Gilcig 082819 #cdnpoli

The local Liberal riding association still has not rolled out a candidate for the October Federal election. It’s an interesting paradigm. With local thug Guy Lauzon retiring his long time flunky, Eric Duncan, is running in his place. Duncan is a very rare out of the closet Conservative candidate. Ironically the buzz has been tepid, […]

Duncan Trotted Out as Token Gay Voice for Scheer in CBC Spin Story on Gay Marriage Comments. By Jamie Gilcig 082819

Most political Canadians know that there’s been a historic glass ceiling for Gay Conservatives with political aspirations. Ask John Baird. Ask Scott Brison who walked over to the Liberals so he could comfortably be who he is. The Liberals rolled out some vintage video of Scheer. It’s politics baby! That’s how it works. To be […]

So, the Liberals shut down the ethics committee- what else is new? Did anyone actually expect the Liberals to allow the opposition to investigate Trudeau’s conduct just weeks before an election? Let us get serious – there isn’t a party out there that would allow this to happen – it would be political suicide. Time […]

Ever since the Ethics Commissioners Report landed with a bang on Trudeau’s desk, the opposition parties have been hard at work attacking the Liberals over the SNC Lavalin scandal. This is what opposition parties are supposed to do, but with an election so close this issue takes on even more importance. For instance, the Leader […]

The Greens will continue to get major media coverage which will ramp up as we get closer to the election date. We are already seeing this happen. Why? Media types will have a hard time saying positive things about the Trudeau government and I suspect many feel disappointed and betrayed by his broken promises, utter […]

Yesterday Jody Wilson-Raybault and Jane Philpott decided to run as independent candidates in the next election. While I respect their choice, I do wonder if it was the wisest move for these two talented MPs. Obviously, they have reasons for not choosing the Green Party, most likely policy differences. However, it is rare that any […]

Lots of folks are watching the recent gains of the Green Party at the provincial level in New Brunswick and PEI and the recent bye-election win in Nanaimo-Ladysmith. They are asking themselves if we are seeing the early beginning of a change in the political landscape. There is no doubt that voters are disenchanted with […]
