After Daring Daylight “Attack” on Cornwall Councillor and Mayor… Is Anyone Safe? LTE 111219

Dear Editor, This past week the Cornwall community was stunned by a Facebook post claiming an “attack” had been perpetrated on a Cornwall City Councillor and the Cornwall Mayor. Information in the post suggested that the weapon used in the “attack” may have been a pen, rumoured to have been mightier than a sword; this […]

After every election loss there is always a lot of soul searching and internal party reviews and of course blame. Needless to say, the Conservative Party is doing that now. But before the “leaders in waiting” start sharpening their knives, they should first decide on just what and who the Conservative Party represents. Dennis Matthews […]

Election 2019 has come and gone, and the aftermath will be felt for years to come. Other than the defeat of Lisa Raitt and Ralph Goodale I wasn’t surprised by the results. With such a poor showing in Alberta and Saskatchewan, watch for Trudeau to appoint Goodale to the Senate and make him a cabinet […]

Election Day After a Dismal Campaign Period – View From the Hill. By Keith Beardsley 102119 #CDNPOLI

Election Day is finally here. In spite of a dismal election campaign by all of the parties exercise your democratic right and vote. It was one of those campaigns where voters wish a POX on all of them. People I talk to and that includes several partisans, made up their minds walking into the voting […]

View From the Hill.  By Keith Beardsley – Trudeau Wearing Bullet Proof Vest @ Rally Not a Sign of a Strong Canadian Democracy 101319 #cdnpoli

At last night’s rally, Trudeau was surrounded by bodyguards and it is reported that he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Like him or not, this is not a healthy sign for democracy in Canada. No politician or their family should ever feel threated. However, it is a sign of the times as faceless people hiding […]

Election Leadership Debate 2019 : Canada Loses.  By Jamie Gilcig #cdnpoli

What an utter farce this election has been. The format for what should’ve been the “Big” debate was a mess. The format blew chunks. Canadians needed and some actually wanted to hear from the candidates, but the Consortium of media outlets that put this together seemed more focused on gender politics than Canadian politics. If […]

No School Strikes as CUPE & Ford Government Settle – Deal Goes for Ratification 100719 #onpoli

Imagine that. No strike in Ontario during this Federal election. While details are sparse at this time, the agreement allows the status quo to roll. From Premier Ford: “Throughout this process our goal has been to establish agreements that respect taxpayers, students and families, while also recognizing the important contributions of our front-line education workers.

Education Action & Strike Call Are Reasons to Look @ the Future of Education in Ontario.  By Jamie Gilcig 100519 #ONPOLI

This writer was shocked this week and it takes a lot to shock someone as jaded as myself. Number 7. Do not administer medication? Really? Social media was littered with reports of children being forced to eat lunch at their desks with some allegations of them having to sit on the hall floors and eat. […]

Conrad Black : Trudeau is a Hypocrite & Weak Leaders 092319

If the government generally was playing it straight and not trying to gain re-election by defaming its opponents, Trudeau could have expressed regret, claimed he’d learned and moved on The election campaign to date has been an exercise in idiocy and cowardice. It is obviously embarrassing for Justin Trudeau to have had to admit to […]

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

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, […]

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? “ […]

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

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

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 […]
