Freeland Budget Geared for Votes More than Supports during Covid-19.  By Jamie Gilcig

APRIL 20, 2021 – Like most things related to politicians disappointment is the usual result. Other media will put the party spin out and highlight the smoke, but the bottom line is that if you are a public servant you’re rocking, but if you’re part of the working class who have paid the biggest price […]

Conrad Black On the Epic Fail of The Conservatives & Erin O’Toole OPINION #cdnpoli

APRIL 11, 2021 – The incompetent Liberals may win the next election. The only explanation for this is the traditional unfeasibility of the Conservative party. It is almost unimaginable, given the horrifying shambles that the present federal government has made of almost everything, that it is potentially on the brink of a premature election, confident […]

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley- O’Toole Convention to Lead to Trudeau Victory

MARCH 21, 2021 – I almost feel sorry for Erin O’Toole today. I say almost because it was his political organization and his staff’s work on the policy convention that has pretty much handed him a loss in the next election. Losing the fight for pro-O’Toole delegates at the riding level selection meetings, cost O’Toole […]

FEBRUARY 18, 2021 – In the midst of a deadly pandemic and with a risk of a third wave plus a botched vaccination plan by the Trudeau Liberals, who would have guessed that the most important question facing the nation yesterday was the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank? That is correct folks, if you have never […]

It’s About the Vaccines Stupid!   View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley #CDNPOLI

FEBRUARY 15, 2021 – No matter how Trudeau tries to spin things, present day life in Canada will not return to anything resembling normal until Canadians get their vaccination shots. We have seniors dying in long term care homes because we don’t have the vaccines. People over 60 are at high risk because we don’t […]

Time for Pre-election Trudeau  Fact Checking – View From the Hill. By Keith Beardsley

JANUARY 30, 2012 – Today Trudeau is saying “For almost a year, Canada’s borders have been closed to foreign travelers.” That is pretty rich, he either believes his own manufactured Liberal spin or he is a blatant liar. Take your pick, neither shows well on a Prime Minister in a G-7 country. On the day […]

JANUARY 21, 2021 – Derek Sloan was finally kicked out of the Conservative caucus today. Whether he was guilty or not of knowingly accepting a donation from Fromm one can argue from now to eternity. But, no one should be surprised he was kicked out; it was long overdue. His previous transgressions were widely known. […]

JANUARY 2, 2021 – Stupidity seems to have infected the political class including- MLA’s, ministers, and political staff. What do they NOT get about restricting travel during the COVID pandemic, especially in provinces with a lock down in place? It is pretty simple- when the health advice on federal and provincial websites is asking you […]

NOVEMBER 13, 2020 – As we see COVID-19 numbers starting to spike with a long Winter ahead it’s time for the Ford Government to truly govern this pandemic. Some problems you can write a cheque to fix. Healthcare staff are limited. We only have so many and can only add so many. We need to […]

Chris Wallace Loses Control of First US Presidential Debate.  By Jamie Gilcig

SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 – If Politics truly are a blood sport, veteran journalist and Fox broadcaster Chris Wallace proves it after a brutal Presidential debate. This writer rarely writes about US politics. I went to school in the US and lived there in the 90’s. I have friends and family there and have always loved […]

SEPTEMBER 18, 2020 – It’s great to be able to use tax money to promote your causes. It’s one of the perks of getting elected. However in 2020 we’re in the midst of a second wave of COVID-19. While Cornwall has either been really lucky with low case numbers, or really good at hiding our […]

Trudeau WE Charity Scandal Won’t Trigger an Election – View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley

JULY 14, 2020 – Trudeau has apologized again for another ethical mess of his own making. He played his part well staring into the camera, voice soft and low, looking contrite etc. You have to give him high marks for his performance and it certainly took over the daily news coverage. My guess is most […]

Well, the Prime Minister feels that no other organization other than WE CHARITY (which his wife Sophie is an ambassador for and supports) was capable of looking after the Canada Student Service Grant “The WE organization is the only organization in Canada that has the scale and the ability to deliver volunteer opportunities for young […]

Well the Tory leadership race is off and running. Really only two serious contenders at this point. Peter MacKay and Erin O’Toole have entered the contest plus a few of the “Who Are They?” Still plenty of time for some hard-right candidate or someone representing the Social Conservative movement to appear. MacKay appears to be […]
