Impotent Andrew Scheer Fumbling as Liberals Flirt with Majority Win.  By Jamie Gilcig  #CDNPOLI 100719

The election that nobody seems to care about trundles on. This will be an historic loss if Andrew Scheer gives The Trudeau Liberals a majority win. With a history of broken election promises and gross hypocrisy the Conservatives simply have failed to deliver a strong game with much of the blame landing on Mr. Scheer. […]

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 […]

Eric Duncan Just Won SD&SG as Liberals Fold and Run Heather Megill in Federal Election 090519 #cdnpoli

Boy that debate should be scintillating. Justin Trudeau and his team may know something Canadians don’t? With a tight National race every riding is important. While favored to win; Eric Duncan certainly is no shoe in vote and the riding’s history is such that dropping in a candidate would’ve been a good option. Team Trudeau […]

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, […]

So, the Liberals shut down the ethics committee- what else is new? Did anyone actually expect the Liberals to allow the opposition to investigate Trudeau’s conduct just weeks before an election? Let us get serious – there isn’t a party out there that would allow this to happen – it would be political suicide. Time […]

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 […]

The Greens will continue to get major media coverage which will ramp up as we get closer to the election date. We are already seeing this happen. Why? Media types will have a hard time saying positive things about the Trudeau government and I suspect many feel disappointed and betrayed by his broken promises, utter […]

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 […]

Lots of folks are watching the recent gains of the Green Party at the provincial level in New Brunswick and PEI and the recent bye-election win in Nanaimo-Ladysmith. They are asking themselves if we are seeing the early beginning of a change in the political landscape. There is no doubt that voters are disenchanted with […]

Trudeau Budget Looks like Pre Cursor to SNAP Election Call. by Jamie Gilcig 032019

It’s amazing how politics work. There are the kool aid drinkers, the partisans, and then the slim amount of folk that will actually listen and read what is being said before making a decision where to park their vote. With Justin Trudeau fighting for his political life because of the SNC Lavalin scandal or #lavscam […]

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 […]

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 […]

Justin Trudeau Can’t Win Next Election & Should Resign over #lavscam by Jamie Gilcig 022819

It’s sad watching the circus that has become the #lavscam scandal. Canadians are getting a rare glimpse, and a sanitized one at that, on the inner workings of government. There is nothing surprising regarding the testimony of former AG Jody Wilson Raybould. It also highlights the degree of Quebec corruption that clearly will not play […]

Magnificent SNC-Lavalin Scandal is Absurdly Canadian by Conrad Black 022319

This is too innocuous for the Americans, too wholesome for Latin America, too complicated for the Swiss and Scandinavians The SNC-Lavalin affair is the quintessential Canadian controversy. It is alleged by unnamed sources that the former justice minister and attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was pressured to order her officials to assess fines rather than prosecute […]
