Letters to the Editor

Elated after wonderful MyMH session

By Letter to the Editor on June 18th, 2018

I wish to say a hearty thank you to each of the persons involved with the MyMH visioning and planning team. I am feeling elated, thrilled and ever so optimistic after attending the visioning session June 12 at the Esplanade! A wonderful framework, display and visioning boards. I came with a long list of thoughts, ... Read More »

Maligned ‘for words never said’

By Letter to the Editor on June 18th, 2018

On June 1, the Medicine Hat News published a story in response to my unpublished letter to the editor involving censorship with the Medicine Hat Public Library Facebook page. As a result of what I believe to be misrepresentations in this story, I have been publicly and unfairly maligned for words which I have never ... Read More »

Heartwarming citizen assistance following crash

By Letter to the Editor on June 15th, 2018

A couple of weeks ago we were at Windmill Garden Centre to choose some bedding plants for our yard. While we were inside, our vehicle, which was parked on the street right in front along First Street S.W. was hit by someone who was heading in the opposite direction and crossed the centre line, hitting ...

Let City Hall know your weed displeasure

By Letter to the Editor on June 14th, 2018

Re: “Medicine Hat has a weed problem,” June 8 I agree wholeheartedly with Ken Pirie’s letter to the editor. I have been fighting with the Parks Department to clean up the weeds and overgrown trees and shrubs around the Northlands storm pond for years. It is a weed-infested disgrace with overgrown underbrush and trees. This ... Read More »

Top treatment at hospital

By Letter to the Editor on June 12th, 2018

I recently spent some days at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. I don’t think I have ever seen a more dedicated, qualified and compassionate group of professionals. There are many hospitals in Alberta that could benefit with services comparable to those delivered in the Medicine Hat facility. Special thanks to the staff on 5 East, ... Read More »

Support and acceptance found far and wide

By Letter to the Editor on June 12th, 2018

Re: “Local man claims he and other ‘Christians’ are being stifled by the library’s social media,” June 1 Mr. S. Johnston has had his two minutes of fame, though I am saddened it was at the expense of some people at the fine public institution whose only crime is social inclusion and acceptance. It’s a ...

Stopping Kinder Morgan

By Letter to the Editor on June 11th, 2018

Wow, we’ve been massively lied to and now get to pay for it in a big way! A National Observer article titled “What’s Behind Kinder Morgan’s May 31 Ultimatum? Follow the Money” by Robyn Allan shows Kinder Morgan never had the money to build the pipeline. So now they’re trying to get out of their ... Read More »

Non-disclosure of injuries keeps at least one fan away

By Letter to the Editor on June 9th, 2018

I’ve become concerned lately about the WHL and NHL using the terms upper and lower body injuries regarding players. Teams use these terms to hide injuries from opponents but end up hiding them from the press and especially the fans paying for tickets. The fans have a right to know what is going on with ...

Was the rant provoked?

By Letter to the Editor on June 8th, 2018

Much ado has been made about a racist rant by a female customer at a Denny’s restaurant in Lethbridge — probably fueled by alcohol, which doesn’t aid rationality. Her tirade certainly was outrageous, but was it unprovoked? People don’t generally burst into such a rage without a reason. When will we hear her side of ... Read More »

Medicine Hat has a weed problem

By Letter to the Editor on June 8th, 2018

Re: “Parks and Recreation: June is Recreation and Parks Month, June 4 The writer of the column was Mr. Randy Taves, manager, Parks and Recreation, City of Medicine Hat. This city does in fact have an abundance of parks and facilities, but they are a far cry from the “beautiful outdoors” mentioned in the column. ... Read More »
