Remember this about alpha males

By Letter to the Editor on February 8th, 2017

Though I understand that the Tickled Pink and Ticked Off feature is popular in our town, I find it annoying that contributors don’t take ownership of their words by signing their names. I’ve been thrilled with the numerous little messages about my columns, both negative and positive, from anonymous readers, but it would be nice ... Read More »

Carbon tax just a redistribution of wealth

By Letter to the Editor on February 8th, 2017

It angers me that Rachel Notley and her NDP government think they have the right to steal from me in the form of the carbon tax. Taking my tax dollars from me and giving them to someone else because their net income is less than mine is ridiculous. My net worth being more than someone ... Read More »

Politicians should deal with the important things first

By Letter to the Editor on February 8th, 2017

I feel a little like Rip Van Winkle. Am I still asleep? Am I dreaming? Or did I really hear controversial statements from the mouths of Canadian and American politicians? One, about Canadian values, has me wondering if I am hearing properly. Canadian values by whose definition? Was there a referendum I missed? Given the ... Read More »

Elect governments based on what they stand for

By Letter to the Editor on February 7th, 2017

The provincial PC Party leadership race has really been ratcheted up in both intensity and viciousness over the past few weeks. Way back when Jason Kenney announced his leadership bid, I was quoted as saying that he wouldn’t succeed at uniting the right because the PC Party is a centrist, big tent party, not a ...

Ban is about preventing further terror attacks

By Letter to the Editor on February 7th, 2017

Re: “Afraid for the world,” Feb. 1 A recent letter to the editor made me afraid for the mental health of a few of my fellow Canadians. It accused the legally elected president of the U.S. of “Polarizing and misdirecting the anger of poor Americans against millions of innocent people, simply based on the color ... Read More »

Grateful for work of PCNs

By Letter to the Editor on February 6th, 2017

I write in admiration for the primary care network nurses. I am fortunate to have a doctor who utilizes a PCN. I find it perplexing to even imagine the education, and continous education they endure. Physican time is freed up, while the PCN educates, and reviews your case. You are firstly greeted with a smile ... Read More »

Shocked by comment at PC leadership debate

By Letter to the Editor on February 4th, 2017

I went to the Alberta PC leadership debate in Medicine Hat and I was shocked when Mr. Kenney made a comment about property rights. Kenney is taking the position he would rather let Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberals control property rights in Alberta. I also took note that during the discussion about Bill 10 ...

U.S. Keystone decision a win for Alberta

By Letter to the Editor on February 3rd, 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump’s approval of the Keystone XL pipeline is great news for Alberta and our oil and gas sector. The U.S. State Department acknowledged for years that this pipeline would be good for job creation while protecting the environment. Unfortunately, the independent approval process was politicized by the previous administration. President Trump’s announcement ... Read More »

A more positive perspective is needed

By Letter to the Editor on February 3rd, 2017

I would like to know why Mr. McLennan is so negative and biased towards Mr. Mueller and others who are of the same mind. When I read Mr. McLennan’s columns, I feel the man should put aside some of his former police state views, roll a big fatty, sit down, have a hit or two ... Read More »

Blatant conflict of interest

By Letter to the Editor on February 3rd, 2017

The Shattered Mirror report on journalism is another example of blatant conflict of interest. Ed Greenspon has worked at the “intersection of journalism, business and public policy” for 30 years and now he wants the Liberal government to tax successful enterprises to prop up the ethically morally and financially bankrupt media outlets so they can ...
