All 29 UCP MLAs have obligation to resign and run in byelections

By Letter to the Editor on August 11th, 2017

The recent birth of the United Conservative Party from the parent PC and Wildrose parties has not been easy and we can expect more growing pains ahead. The lightning fast speed at which the unification of the centrist PC party and right wing Wildrose party left little time to organize and or anticipate potential problems. ... Read More »

Photo radar discussion hides the fact that Medicine Hat Police Service is not fully funded

By Letter to the Editor on August 11th, 2017

It is time to stop our constant attempts to vilify the Medicine Hat Police Service for their use of photo radar. Photo radar (and red light cameras) were advertised and sold to cities everywhere as both a traffic enforcement tool and a revenue generator. And it serves both functions. Truth is, the whole photo radar ... Read More »

One man’s opinion: How the world came about

By Letter to the Editor on August 4th, 2017

At any age a chance to know the cause of the world should not be wasted. The first phenomenon has to be the infinity of space as no border is possible. The next one is the great mass of energy, which is open for a name and might well be called god. The basic unit ... Read More »

Leaders of merged parties have created major blunder

By Letter to the Editor on August 4th, 2017

You have to question the intelligence of the Wildrose and Conservative party leaders. These two Reform Party buddies have created another major blunder for themselves. A man in West Edmonton Mall told me recently that although he had no intention of supporting them he had bought memberships in both parties so that he could vote ... Read More »

Patron disappointed with how Stampede ended Saturday night

By Letter to the Editor on August 3rd, 2017

This year the Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede theme to celebrate Canada 150 was “Strong and Free.” The Saturday night should have been renamed “The Weak and the Hog Tied.” For an experience that would be so memorable for visitors here from the U.K. we had taken in every aspect of the Stampede every day ...

Work together for a constructive solution

By Letter to the Editor on August 1st, 2017

Since I was not born many millennia ago I can’t verify nor deny who the original human custodians of our planet were. Were they cavemen, Aztec, Inca? It doesn’t matter. Our modern Indigenous people are descendants who worshipped whom they believed to be their creator. To this day they consider where they buried their dead ... Read More »

Trudeau’s rationale in Khadr case is ‘very much the Liberal approach’

By Letter to the Editor on July 28th, 2017

“The Khadrs, Canada’s First Family of Terrorism” is how Dr. Daniel Pipes of Pepperdine University and of the Middle East Forum has labeled this controversial Canadian family. He has documented their activities inside and outside Canada to the most recent happening. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issues a public apology to Omar Khadr and also decides ... Read More »

Offended and alarmed over government payment to Khadr

By Letter to the Editor on July 27th, 2017

Re: “Terrorism should have consequences,” July 25 Well said, Mr. Maltin, I totally agree with your letter. I am very offended and alarmed that my tax dollars are used to pay off a known terrorist. Barb Bockman Dunmore... Read More »

Dangerous intersection needs attention

By Letter to the Editor on July 27th, 2017

The road meeting Dunmore Road coming out of the Medicine Hat Mall (the Wendy’s corner) is dangerous, because it’s unsigned for people making a right turn from the mall side onto Dunmore Road. There is no indication to drivers coming from the area of the mall that vehicles making a left turn off Ross Glen ... Read More »

Many questions after vote to unite the right

By Letter to the Editor on July 26th, 2017

The right will never unite 100 per cent. We are seeing Whiningrose leaving and CONservatives jumping ship. The New Dictator Party isn’t growing either. The big winners in membership, funding and support is Greg Clark and The Alberta Party. So at the end of the day, the vote will still be split. The sad fact ... Read More »
