Lauzon A Pigeon With No Roost as Trudeau Gains Majority – Clement Back to Council by Jamie Gilcig

Canadians have spoken, and loudly, condemning Stephen Harper and rebuking his policies to the point of giving Justin Trudeau and his Liberals a full majority. Thomas Mulcair and his NDP fared even worse than Harper sliding back to their traditional less than 50 seats. Locally Guy Lauzon handily beat City Councilor Bernadette Clement for a […]

Conrad Black Writes Stephen Harper’s Political Obituary – OCT 17, 2015

The arguments for voting for Conservative Leader Stephen Harper are numerous and persuasive. He has been a competent and diligent prime minister who has avoided fiscal imprudence, brought us well through the 2008 financial crisis and has gone to great and imaginative lengths to keep taxes down and shrink public-sector spending as a share of […]

SD&SG Riding President Calls Incumbent MP A Bully on Social Media by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

SD&SG Riding President Calls Incumbent MP A Bully on Social Media by Jamie Gilcig OCT 12, 2015

As we get closer to the 19th it seems the local Liberals are feeling the frustration from trailing so badly in the poll numbers.      Or simply they have an utter boob as a riding President and simply didn’t replace him as they never had much hope of actually winning?   At the 8 […]

Media Pushing Hard for Justin Trudeau Victory in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig OCT 11, 2015

Media Pushing Hard for Justin Trudeau Victory in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig OCT 11, 2015

Maybe Stephen Harper was right all those years claiming an unfair media bias…or maybe all those years of claiming media bias are coming home to bite him on his thinking parts, but this election is seeing a clear surge this Thanksgiving weekend of media mania for all things Justin Trudeau and the Liberals. Which is […]

Burger Knocks Lauzon Down and Clement Kicks Him by Reg Coffey

Patrick Burger, Guy Lauzon, Bernadette Clement, Elaine Kennedy CFN- It was a feisty debate at the Civic Complex last night. Three of the four candidates were ready for battle and battle they did. The Green Party Candidate, Elaine Kennedy, was much more circumspect about the election preferring to talk about the environment and communication in general […]

Garden Girl is Sick of the Money Sucking Vortex & the Federal Election – OCT 3, 2015

Apparently Stephen Harper has visited S.,D. & G. and proclaimed that rural Canada should have better internet. The problem is not that we don’t have decent internet, it is that we are expected to pay astronomical amounts for data when our urban friends pay a pittance. Especially when our incomes are compared. In fact, there […]

Lauzon Toughs It Out During Election While Wife Endures Lymphoma by Jamie Gilcig

Lauzon Toughs It Out During Election While Wife Endures Lymphoma by Jamie Gilcig

It’s an odd and strange election here in SD&SG.  With MP Guy Lauzon polling with over 60% support there is little doubt he will be re elected.   The lack of pork delivered to the riding this term clearly shows that the Harper team feel no threat to SD&SG turning Red or Orange. In fact […]

Letter to the Editor – Tom Manley On Conservative Tax Credits SEPT 20, 2015

Conservative Tax Credits Are Big Government The Harper Conservative are proposing a tax credit for service club memberships. That follows earlier tax credits for volunteer firemen, children’s organized sports, and children’s organized cultural activities. These are all very noble and worthy endeavours. But do they need tax credits? Do tax credits make them more worthy […]

Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown Forces Premier Wynne to Retreat With First Question at Queen’s Park SEPT 15, 2015

Ontario Conservative leader Patrick Brown took his seat at Queen’s Park and took aim at Premier Kathleen Wynne with his first question.

After Meeting Local NDP Candidate I Can’t Vote in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 20, 2015 #CDNPOLI

After Meeting Local NDP Candidate I Can’t Vote in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 20, 2015 #CDNPOLI

This has to be the weirdest Federal election I’ve lived through.    I’m now a hyper partisan voter.  No more party allegiances for me. The problem is that in this race the one leader I’d lean towards I’ve lost all faith in.    Nor do I see that much separating the three main parties. Yes, […]

I  Think You’re A Lying Piece of Shit – It’s Not Just Harper Politics by Jamie Gilcig AUG 18, 2015

  While this disturbing, but hotly awesome piece of video is going viral it shows a few things about politics in Canada in 2015. One that the Harperites are extremely unhappy with the Mike Duffy saga; not so much for what Duffy did, but for how it’s played out. Does any reasonable Canadian really believe […]

Beardsley 1 – Trudeau 0 on CTV Sound Bite to Fire Harper Staff #CDNPOLI Aug 16, 2015

Don’t you just love this man’s high standards? “Stephen Harper picked these people, he hired them, he promoted them, he protected them, and he’s keeping them on the public payroll while they run his election campaign even though he knows full well everything that they did,” Trudeau said (Referring of course to the staffers in […]

Clement Fumbles First Big PR Event of Election – Snubbed by Freeholder as Trudeau Visits Highland Games by Jamie Gilcig

CORNWALL Ontario — It’s been a bumpy beginning to the campaign for Cornwall City Councilor Bernadette Clement.    She’s been part of a council this term that has attacked family ice rinks at Christmas and made National news again for getting jiggy with worm and lemonde selling kids. Her riding president, Jamie Labonte, was also […]
