Where was Roughriders’ Labour Day coverage?

By Letter to the Editor on September 18th, 2017

I was very disappointed in the Labour Day weekend overage for reporting of the CFL games played. I believe there was a game Sunday afternoon between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. It never even made a mention in the News, but big coverage for the battle of Alberta. Are not all the teams ... Read More »

Siding with Justin Trudeau on changes to Canadian tax act

By Letter to the Editor on September 18th, 2017

Re: “Business Beat: Proposed corporate tax changes cause for concern,” Sept. 6 What a neat idea the executive director of the Medicine Hat Chamber of Commerce has of putting quotation marks around words she doesn’t seem to agree with () Did she actually mean to be so condescending? If so, it sure worked on me. ... Read More »

Valuable science info available if people take the time to look

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2017

Re: “Important to stay abreast of advancing science,” Sept. 7 Thank you to Fred Lewis for his letter in which I was glad to read him urging others to become informed about scientific information. His letter dealt with human gender and gender identity but, more broadly, there is high-quality scientific information readily available on many ... Read More »

Fun, games and laughter at possible Sixth Avenue Plaza

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2017

An idea for Medicine Hat city council for the lot at the corner of First Street and Sixth Avenue S.E. Keep the lot, fix it up and then let the people in the city have a cool place to play all summer in a wading pool. You could call the area Sixth Avenue Plaza. And ... Read More »

Transit woes: ‘Finally I just walked home’

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2017

I’m writing about the changes to the transit system from my own experience that happened to me. I wish and hope that the Medicine Hat city council will reconsider this decision they have made to corrupt something that was never broken in the first place. Sept. 8 was my first time taking the new route ... Read More »

Money wasted on Strachan Road construction

By Letter to the Editor on September 15th, 2017

I was very disappointed with the contractor redoing Strachan Road this summer, and also Spruce Way last year. They tore up a perfectly good road to redo it. Both these roads were in very good shape. I believe some managers are advising city council to do these so they will last another 20 years. These ... Read More »

No need for Canada to be divided into provinces

By Letter to the Editor on September 14th, 2017

Why is this country divided by man-made lines needing redundant provincial governing bodies? Surely a national and municipal government with county representation would be able to manage and deliver on the needs of the people of Canada. When I take an eraser and eliminate borders on a map of Canada, nothing changes. By redrawing the ... Read More »

Return your unused medication to your pharmacist

By Letter to the Editor on September 13th, 2017

Recently, opioids and safe drug disposal have been in the news across Canada. Drugs that are not disposed of properly can become an environmental hazard, contaminating our waters or they may end up in the wrong hands which could lead to their abuse. To combat this, I am pleased to say the Alberta Pharmacists’ Association ... Read More »

Writer is just another bleeding-heart Liberal

By Letter to the Editor on September 13th, 2017

Re: “Guest Column: Human rights are for everyone,” Sept. 6 Elizabeth Strange is right; human rights are for all humanity. Omar Khadr has no conscience, as shown by his actions to kill any allied soldiers or any civilian happening by. No Canadian or anyone else on Earth would do this. So his rights as a ... Read More »

Is Medicine Hat Transit dead?

By Letter to the Editor on September 13th, 2017

Re: “Council lukewarm to transit challenge,” Sept. 2 A recent article in the Medicine Hat News has shown that city council was not directly involved in the decisions made regarding Medicine Hat Transit. It was stated there that “We never physically looked at this plan and said, yes, this is the plan we are going ... Read More »
