Public school boards association in Alberta indeed supports access to separate education for minority faiths

By Letter to the Editor on October 23rd, 2017

On behalf of the Public School Boards’ Association of Alberta, I would like to address some misinformation in the Sept. 19 article headlined “Catholic board election attracts packed ballot.” One of the people quoted in the article stated that “the Public School Boards’ Association of Alberta questions the legitimacy of the constitutional right of Catholics ...

By Letter to the Editor on October 23rd, 2017

When you see all the natural disasters and violence happening in the world, it makes one very grateful to live in the wonderful country of Canada.

Helpful Hatter

By Letter to the Editor on October 20th, 2017

On Oct. 13, my wife and I were frantically searching for the Pattison Funeral parlour on South Railway Street. We were stuck at the bottom of Fifth Street with no way to turn right. But lo and behold, there was a white half-ton with a very obliging citizen who said “follow me.” So we did, ... Read More »

UCP must return to social conservatism and moderate fiscal policies of Peter Lougheed

By Letter to the Editor on October 19th, 2017

Re: “Fiscal conservatives haven’t had a voice in Alberta for 20 years,” Oct. 12 Although, Ralph Klein described himself as a fiscal conservative, he more often talked the talk than walked the walk. He kept taxes high by fighting for tax-funded abortion, and he brought in health care premiums for seniors. Klein’s socially liberal views ... Read More »

Transparency lacking at city hall

By Letter to the Editor on October 16th, 2017

Re: “Don’t hold your breath waiting for transit satisfaction, if Veiner situation is any indication,” Sept. 22 As always from the pen of Gillian Slade, an excellent, thought provoking editorial.

Canada will be next to open doors to democratic governance

By Letter to the Editor on October 13th, 2017

Colonial rule is history. It went out the door with the Second World War. The Pacific Charter spelled the end of a long and ugly period of rape and plunder of resources on a global scale, and paved the way for people to exercise their right to self-determination, and to live as free people.

By Letter to the Editor on October 13th, 2017

Re: “Can’t vote for anyone on mayoral ballot,” Oct. 5 What about our present mayor? He is young, bright, full of grand ideas, and performs very well at ribbon cutting and other special occasions. What I have a problem with is the council. I think the whole works should be replaced. I think they have ... Read More »

Fiscal conservatives haven’t had a voice in Alberta for 20 years

By Letter to the Editor on October 12th, 2017

Re: “Fiscal conservatives will be the downfall of ‘divided’ party and Notley’s New Democrats will win re-election,” Oct. 6 Mr. Egan has made up his mind, but is confused. Former prime minister Stephen Harper never actually included much for fiscal conservatives. The Flanagan doctrine he purported to follow featured measured incrementalism to get the budget ...
