View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Eve Adams Winners & Losers FEB 12, 2015

Political types tend to look at every action that takes place as a win or lose situation. This is especially true in today’s hyper-partisan political environment where each side regards the other parties as the enemy, not just as competitors for the hearts and minds of voters. In this super charged environment capturing one of […]

Did John Baird Hit the Glass Ceiling? MP Resigns Cabinet Post by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 3, 2015 POLL

CFN – John Baird was one of the Harper government’s most interesting Cabinet ministers.   Today he announced that he’s stepping down from his post and will not be running again.   There’s wild speculation about what has triggered his decision. Could it be that MP’s that retire before the end of February get their […]

Conrad Black: Radical Islam poses a real, direct threat to the West — including Canada JAN 24, 2015

CFN – It is distressing to witness the waffling and quibbling in both federal opposition parties over Canada’s contribution to the anti-terrorist effort in the Middle East, and even more depressing to note the failure of the opposition to show any recognition of the nature of the intensifying struggle between the West and radical Islam. […]

Federal  Liberal Bash In Cornwall Ontario a No Show for Domenic LeBlanc by Jamie Gilcig JAN 22, 2015

CORNWALL Ontario – It was another embarrassing night for the local Federal Liberal riding association under President Jamie Labonte.   The lightly employed prez saw his guest speaker for the spaghetti fund raiser not show up and a crowd of less than 30 attended at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Sadly it marred the announcement of Corey […]

View From The Hill By Keith Beardsley – Time For Harper to Sit Down Over Minister Attacks

CFN – This past week we have seen Prime Minister Harper keep with tradition and stand during Question Period to defend two of his embattled ministers. One has to wonder why? The foul ups and bad optics that Veteran Affairs minister Fantino created for himself, should not require the Prime Minister to defend him. It […]

SD&G MP Guy  Lauzon Doesn’t Understand Poverty by Jamie Gilcig DEC 2, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – Politicians say a lot of things.   They really do. And then there are those like our MP who will say just about anything the PMO’s office wish him to say like what he did in Parliament recently on Poverty. Yes, there’s an election coming and surprisingly Mr. Lauzon isn’t going to […]

Was Hubert Lacroix Hired to Dismantle the CBC by Jamie Gilcig – NOV 17, 2014

CFN – It seems that there’s a move a foot to kill the CBC.  And it’s coming from within. Hubert Lacroix, the reigning President of our Nation’s broadcaster looks like Gordon Gekko a business guy/bureaucrat brought in to dismantle the CBC one block at a time. He didn’t work his way up the broadcaster, but was […]

Cover Up Over Poppy Defacement & Mockery in Hate Group Supported by SD&G Highlanders Hon Lt Colonel Jim Brownell – Nov 1, 2014

CORNWALL Ontario – What does the Poppy mean to you as Remembrance Day approaches?   Should we be remembering those who sacrificed their lives only one day per year? Many people have different thoughts about the Poppy which is used by the Legion to raise funds for our Veterans.   Many return maimed, wounded, or […]

From hopelessness to hope: Cornwall’s poppy defacement after the tragic loss of reservist Nathan Cirillo By Mary Anne Pankhurst

From hopelessness to hope: Cornwall’s poppy defacement after the tragic loss of reservist Nathan Cirillo  By Mary Anne Pankhurst

Hope doesn’t always spring eternal. This was especially true (for me) in late summer, after the 100th anniversary of WW1 slipped back into the past, and August was on the wane. By that time, it was fully two months after the defacement of the poppy (by a gang that grew to well over 550 Cornwall-N-Area […]

Will the Blood of Cpl Nathan Cirillo be in Vain After Shooting in Ottawa by Jamie Gilcig OCT 22, 2014 #harper

CFN – Today was a dark day in Canadian history.   A man (or men) killed one of our brave Canadian soldiers.   The second this week.   Why is this happening?   Politics.   There are people dying in wars all over the world.  In particular the Middle East.  Far more than we have […]

Where to, Canada? A Canadian looks at the country that welcomed him and his family forty-six years ago. by PJ Robertson

CFN – In “The Art of Fiction” Henry James cites “the very obvious truth that the deepest quality of a work of art will always be the quality of the mind of the producer.” Inasmuch as a country is a work of art—a work in progress, to be sure—its deepest quality will be the quality of […]
