  • Take care of our veterans

    It is becoming clearer and clearer the Trudeau Liberal government is dragging its feet over restoration of lifetime pensions for Canadian veterans inflicted with lifetime injuries in the line of duty. While more than willing to throw away hundreds of millions of Canadian taxpayer money to the prime minister’s pet causes overseas so he can ... Read More »

  • Anthem lyrics actually haven’t changed yet

    (Re: “Anthem lyrics change not a big deal,” July 18.) Mr. Rooke is incorrect in thinking the national anthem lyrics were officially changed. If he Googles the article, he will discover that the Senate did not vote on the bill to change as the majority was against it. Therefore they refused to vote before Canada ... Read More »

  • How much did Klein cuts cost Alberta taxpayers?

    Being a Conservative I would like to blame the Khadr disaster on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also but can’t. I remember the warnings the lawyers and judges were giving then-PM Stephen Harper, that if he didn’t handle it properly we could be in trouble. Harper wouldn’t listen.
