Finding the silver linings

By Letter to the Editor on October 25th, 2016

I have had a new disability in my life since June which I find amusing. It sticks out more than my other disabilities and draws more attention at times but I find that it is not as troubling as being bipolar on it’s difficult days. Or as mind numbing as “The Joy of Autism” as ... Read More »

PM’s grandstanding is expensive

By Letter to the Editor on October 25th, 2016

In September our prime minister gave $765 million over two years to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis as an Ottawa crowd chanted “Canada is Back.” From 2001 to 2015 Canada donated a total of $1.8 billion to this fund — an amount averaging $120 million a year and equivalent to other ...

Canada’s international reputation

By Letter to the Editor on October 22nd, 2016

Did a change in our federal government in October 2015 result in an improvement in our international reputation? According to a CBC report on July 16, 2015, the Reputation Institute reported that the world survey rated Canada as No. 1 internationally. The Institute surveyed more than 48,000 in the G8 countries and an additional 30,000 ... Read More »

Carbon taxes destructive

By Letter to the Editor on October 22nd, 2016

I see all these red signs around. I hear from people that Stan Sakamoto is a good person. I am sure he is. However, I think we need to look beyond that and what the Liberals represent. The Liberals, I believe, are about changing our way of life and not in a good way. This ... Read More »

Parents should be primary educators of children

By Letter to the Editor on October 22nd, 2016

Response: “Washroom Accommodation in Schools a nod to the new reality of our times,” Oct. 22 As co-founder of Medicine Hat Parents for Choice in Education and submitter of the Christian School petition I feel obliged to respond. Mr. Mueller claims to represent the Christian moral high ground yet unmistakably engages in mudslinging, misrepresentation and ... Read More »

Ability to protest makes democracy great

By Letter to the Editor on October 22nd, 2016

Aren’t we lucky to live in a country such as Canada, where citizens can still make their viewpoints heard. Not only to exercise their right, but also their duty, to protest those things they believe to be unjust. One can only imagine what would happen if you held up a sign on any Russian street ...

It’s every person’s responsibility to vote

By Letter to the Editor on October 22nd, 2016

On Oct. 24, citizens of the Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner federal riding have an opportunity to exercise one of the fundamental rights we have as citizens; the right to vote. To me voting isn’t just a right, though, it is also a responsibility. As citizens we are responsible for the elected officials and government we choose. All ... Read More »

Justin Trudeau: Like father, like son

By Letter to the Editor on October 22nd, 2016

Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s imposition of his National Energy Program in 1980 was aimed squarely at Alberta — I know, I was here. Today, Justin Pierre Trudeau’s threatened unilateral imposition of a national carbon tax, his “National Environmental Program,” which pre-empts climate negotiations with Canada’s premiers, is also aimed squarely at Alberta. The effect on Alberta ... Read More »

On gov’t side? Or opposition?

By Letter to the Editor on October 21st, 2016

For years southern Alberta has been called the forgotten corner. For those same years we have been represented by the same political party. One can’t help but wonder if this is a coincidence. On Oct. 24, we have a chance to change this by playing personnel manager and can hire our member of parliament for ... Read More »

Hopefully, city’s oil investment pans out

By Letter to the Editor on October 20th, 2016

The City of Medicine Hat finds itself between a rock and a hard place. The current climate of low prices and low demand means there is not enough extra revenue coming from the energy divisions to finance the city’s budget shortfalls. This falling revenue is common to all energy producers; it is not a failing ... Read More »
