Can’t see a bright side to Canada’s future

By Letter to the Editor on October 11th, 2016

I’m not sure that Justin Trudeau has realistically thought through this proposed (or is it already a done deal?) carbon tax. I realize that (Environment Minister Catherine) McKenna has pointed out that the provinces can just reduce other sources of provincial funding (taxes) so that we taxpayers will be at a net zero at the ...

MP on gov’t side potentially more effective

By Letter to the Editor on October 7th, 2016

Re: “Voting Sakamoto means voting for Trudeau,” Oct. 3 Mr. Spencer is clearly a gifted writer and as a debater, he knows that often the truth is in the details. He therefore studiously avoids including the details of some of his accusations against the Trudeau government. On the other hand, he also knows that truth ... Read More »

Local schools can offer rational thought, compassion and ‘Canadian Way’ to the gender identity community

By Letter to the Editor on October 7th, 2016

“There is nothing to fear, except fear itself.” We should heed the advice of FDR when having the gender identity (or LGBTQ) discussion. Instead of being stampeded by fear, let us look at the facts. Gender identity students face harassment and bullying far more extensively than other students. Denigrating or demeaning comments are frequently made ... Read More »

Photo radar ‘insidious’ — meant to entrap

By Letter to the Editor on October 6th, 2016

I favour photo radar in school, playground, construction zones and residential areas. The rationale is obvious. I do not, however, favour insidious photo radar placed by the Medicine Hat Police Service (MHPS) at sucker locations such as going downhill on Parkview Drive (62 km) or College Avenue at the ramp to the Trans-Canada Highway (62 ...

First, I want to thank the crew of Fire Station No. 1 on for helping me when the four medical clinics I went to for help would not. I had a minor medical procedure done at the Medical Arts Clinic. When I got to the mall I saw that there was a small problem. I ... Read More »

Every Child Matters?

By Letter to the Editor on October 4th, 2016

It is curious that there be a day designated for Every Child Matters and the Premier of Alberta is seen wearing an orange T-shirt with that slogans when Alberta kills 10,000 babies every year with our tax dollars. Which children’s lives matter? Cathy Smith Medicine Hat... Read More »

Ad wording offends

By Letter to the Editor on October 3rd, 2016

I was quite dismayed recently to receive a flyer with my newspaper, a flyer I found totally offensive, disgusting and just plain wrong. It should offend any Christian. The flyer used the acronym OMFG. Easyhome is one store that I for sure will never shop in. Who owns this company? Who wrote this disturbing ad? ... Read More »
