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 […]

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

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, […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – Has May Thought Through #lavscam Inquiry Bite? 081819

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 […]

Gail Vaz Oxlade Autism Rant @ Lisa MacLeod Proves the Power of  a Word. By Jamie Gilcig 070119  PROFANITY ALERT

George Carlin would be smiling from ear to ear over the latest explosion about the use of one of his Seven Words you can’t say on TV. Earlier this week Gail, an autism advocate, and clearly not a fan of the Ford gov’t, tweeted out : “Does she know her mother is a heartless cunt? “ […]

View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – JWR & Philpott Miss by Not Joining Greens 052819

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 […]

Overspending Complaint Against Cornwall Mayor Highlights Toxic Bully Culture in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 042419

Overspending Complaint Against Cornwall Mayor Highlights Toxic Bully Culture in Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig 042419

Cornwall is not a unique community. It however does have a strain of bully culture that is very rare in that it’s embraced by its victims, many times more than its bullies, who really, because of cronyism, aren’t that capable. An example is that when I tried to save our Public Art Gallery and ended […]

Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Must Vacate Seat After Campaign Overspending by 29% by Jamie Gilcig POLL

Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement Must Vacate Seat After Campaign Overspending by 29% by Jamie Gilcig   POLL

It’s boggling the level that some people and media outlets will sink too. Bernadette Clement has run in five elections, including two for MP. Campaign spending limits are one of the most common features of any run. In fact Ms Clement has a team around her. Not only is she herself a lawyer, but Etienne […]

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 […]

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 […]

Kevin Lalonde Out in South Glengarry – More Change – Still no CAO  020619

The Director – Development, Chief Building Official of South Glengarry had been under a lot of heat. After CAO Bryan Brown was terminated many wondered why Lalonde wasn’t terminated at the same time. No details have come out of the township. No statement has been issued, but the township by phone confirmed that Mr. Lalonde […]

South Glengarry Mayor Frank Prevost confirmed to CFN that CAO Bryan Brown was terminated. Mayor Prevost stated that the township wanted to go in a new direction.

One would be hard pressed to find any politicians or their staff showing any Christmas spirit on either Twitter or Facebook these days. The animosity continues to reach new heights every day as political partisans of all stripes continue their attacks on each other. One of the biggest changes that I have observed over the […]

Retired Cornwall Firefighter Mark A MacDonald – Bob Turner Would Make 1 Central New Fire Station LTE 100218

The new Council really needs to consider the possibility of having one central location for the new fire station, such as the old Bob Turner site. Attached is a map of the city that clearly shows a 6 minute response time that covers most of the city and is still well within the allowable response times […]

Bad Management & Council Lead to High Taxes in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig 100218

Cornwall Ontario – The city likes to give out voodoo numbers when it comes to tax increases, but the bottom line is the bottom line.  If you raise taxes nearly 20% per term without increasing revenues something always gives out. Even worse, if you borrow money to pay for a tax increase, as Cornwall did […]

Bad Politics Again Hit SD&G OSPCA as Fundraiser Turnout Falls #EPICFAIL 092418

Cornwall Ontario – The SD&G Ospca twice refused full year ad plans from this newspaper, one paid for by a local businessperson.    Playing politics instead of putting the animals first has led to tragic results. “This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Carol Link, manager. “We had a low turnout […]
