Trudeau policies don’t sell well here

By Letter to the Editor on November 10th, 2016

Firstly, a big thank you to the Medicine Hat News for providing a Comments page. I usually find amusing and insightful glimpses into the lefty progressive heart and mind. Len “Bleating Sheep” Jalbert or others, I find in their words the true intolerant nature of the progressive movement. After all, Mr. Jalbert, if a Liberal-progressive ... Read More »

By Letter to the Editor on November 9th, 2016

I am a very proud Canadian, having served in the Canadian Forces for many years and been posted to the Middle East and Europe. I have been following the exercise in the U.S. called an election campaign. I feel obliged to offer my perception of those events even though they do not yet directly impact ... Read More »

Tossing cigarette butts from cars can cause wild fires

By Letter to the Editor on November 7th, 2016

I applaud our government for taking steps to help mitigate the risk of wild fires. As our elected MLAs debate Bill 24, Forest and Prairie Protection Amendment Act 2016. I have watched with great interest as both sides are basically in agreement of the law. The debate is more on the definitions of words to ... Read More »

More unemployment isn’t the solution

By Letter to the Editor on November 4th, 2016

Re: “Premier needs to understand state of the province, not just state of the government,” Oct. 21 Gillian Slade wants the Alberta government to show it cares for Albertans who have lost their jobs by laying off more Albertans or slashing their wages. Imagine you have lost your job. Then imagine how you’ll feel when ... Read More »

Column painted ‘rosy’ liberal picture

By Letter to the Editor on November 4th, 2016

Re: “Conservatives and liberals: the differences,” Oct. 29 I’ll take the bait, Peter. Let me first suggest that your concept of liberals and conservatives is as outdated as arguing about politics in a newspaper. Your picture of Canadian liberals is far too rosy, but typical. Liberty never meant having government legislate a solution, ever. But, ... Read More »

Desperate to find long pants locally

By Letter to the Editor on November 4th, 2016

I am writing this from the point of absolute frustration. It is almost impossible to buy slacks, jeans or yoga pants in Medicine Hat with an inseam longer than 31 inches. I find it difficult to believe I’m the only tall female in southeastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan even though I’ve been told there “isn’t ... Read More »

Support for MP’s Motion 47

By Letter to the Editor on October 31st, 2016

“There’s just something about the plethora of violent porn that is disturbing to me, particularly when you consider its ready availability to people who are under the age of 18.” Who said that? You might guess it was a medical professional, thinking about children’s mental health. It might have been an educator concerned about the ... Read More »

Byelection was a ‘catch-22’ for Prime Minister Trudeau

By Letter to the Editor on October 28th, 2016

I find it pathetic and appalling that the Conservative Party of Canada spin doctors are attempting to use the prime minister’s visit to Medicine Hat as a rallying cry for the election win by Mr. Motz. Most rational people would have realized very early that this byelection was a catch-22 for Justin Trudeau. A failure ... Read More »
