Senator Mike Duffy has returned to Parliament Hill, less than two weeks after he was acquitted of all 31 charges in his trial for fraud, bribery and breach of trust. Whether we agree with the judge’s decision or not, and as shocking as it may have been to many Canadians, we have to live with the decision. What I find the most galling of all though, is the possibility that Duffy may or may not seek reimbursement for an estimated $250,000 of wages he missed during his two and ha... Click here

On Welland's website, welland.ca and it's twitter account, the notices said, "The Forks Road Bridge in Dain City is CLOSED until further notice."
Are you ready for a long wait? Structural repairs will be conducted 'As soon as possible'.
I’m back to square one in the Stanley Cup playoffs, that is, with no Canadian team or teams taking part, who to cheer for? A Giant FM listener e-mailed last week pointing out that the Florida Panthers had the most Canadian on the roster of any of the playoff teams, so they suddenly had my allegiance. But sadly, my new team was eliminated in six games by the New York Islanders, so what to do? I’ve got it, although this may be the result of undiagnosed concussion... Click here
Well it looks as though New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will have to miss the first four games of the 2016 NFL season, including a week 4 matchup at home against the Buffalo Bills. A U.S. federal appeals court has reinstated Brady’s four game suspension for his involvement in the ‘DeflateGate’ scandal. He seems to be out of options at this point, short of taking his case to the Supreme Court. Hey, it’s Brady, it’s the Pat... Click here

On Sunday night Bruce Springsteen opened up his show in New York with a rendition of “Purple Rain” he belted out a soulful version while the stage was bathed in purple.
Over the last few days there have been a number of musicians who have been paying their respects to the diminutive one and it seems that ev... Click here
Noticed a story on CBC about GEORGE ORWELL, who died in 1950. Much is still relevant today. George's most famous line, "Big Brother is Watching You" came from his most famous book, 1984. Orwell asks us to be vigilant, be on guard for Freedom, and to keep the faith: Decency, Tolerance and Humanity. Be aware of the terms 'Doublethink, Thoughtcrime and Newspeak'.
1984 sounded many warnings about privacy and state surveillance. Big Brother is Watching YOU.
The world has lost another musical icon. Prince (full name Prince Rogers Nelson) was found dead yesterday at the age of 57.

He also won an Oscar for best original song score for the 1984 movie ‘Purple Rain”. The tributes have been pouring in on social media, among them, Elton John calling Prince the best performer he ever s... Click here
