Melanie Joly Digs a Deeper Hole over Russia Mess VIEW FROM THE HILL by KEITH BEARDSLEY

JUNE 15, 2022 – The present Minister of Foreign Affairs, Melanie Joly, needs to learn when to be quiet.

But to keep insisting the buck stops with her and she didn’t know […]

Conservative Leadership New Membership Number Shell Game can Backfire VIEW FROM THE HILL by Keith Beardsley

JUNE 13, 2022 – Here we go again, teams of partisans backing various candidates shouting out their membership numbers in the Conservative Leadership race.

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley – O’Toole Gag Order on Bill 21 is Weak Sauce

December 19, 2021 – If media reports are correct, O’Toole has prohibited his MPs from speaking out publicly about Quebec’s racist Bill 21. While O’Toole says he is personally opposed to this law, he refuses to say that it should be challenged in court. Instead, he lets it continue to fester as a Quebec based […]

View From the Hill. By Keith Beardsley – Can O’Toole & Conservatives Get Vaxxed for Self Destruction?

NOVEMBER 24, 2021 – For over three months the Conservatives have been dealing with one issue that they can’t seem to put to bed.

Alleged Anti Vaxxers Behind Covid-19 School Spread in Cornwall Ontario.  By Jamie Gilcig

September 23, 2021 – It’s common sense really. If you work with the public, especially vulnerable public, you need to be vaccinated against a virus that has killed millions during this world wide pandemic.

SEPTEMBER 20, 2021 – So it’s election day and Justin Trudeau is flirting with a Majority victory.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 – As we enter the final week of our pandemic election, here is some advice from an old political pro- take a deep breath and relax. Do your own research. Dig deep, ignore the media hype. The media will push poll after poll at you- after all they are paying big dollars […]

September 10, 2021 – Did you watch the debate? All of it? Did you watch the French debates? Do you think anything in the debate really can change the final vote results? These are questions asked every election. But my job as a journalist is to watch the silly things. As a jaded old white […]

AUGUST 28, 2021 – Scary times and scary days during this election. With Covid-19 numbers rising it appears that the Anti Vax faction is starting to boil over.

AUGUST 13, 2021 – With an election call expected any day now, expect the opposition parties to continue their whining about it being unnecessary.
