NDP fixing an inherited mess

By Letter to the Editor on March 28th, 2018

Re: “Tax-and-spend socialist job creation at work,” March 22 My circle of friends and I are all seniors and were all long-time conservative supporters who stopped supporting them when Klein came on the scene. We all supported the NDP in the last election to put a stop to the horrific mess we were being forced ... Read More »

Concerned by this council

By Letter to the Editor on March 28th, 2018

What did Medicine Hat learn from the last civic election? We had some level of change on council, but maybe not enough. The 2017 fiasco over transit and specifically the temporary relocation of the Fourth Street bust stop to the Esplanade could have brought council down, but it didn’t. What else is there to be ...

Corporate Canada makes valuable contributions to our economy

By Letter to the Editor on March 26th, 2018

A school of thought prevails that corporate profit is somehow suspicious. It is argued that corporate entities are only driven by profit. The impression is left that the well-being of its employees is minimized, that its product or service is of the lowest quality and that the environment is completely ignored. Unquestionably the economy will ... Read More »

How do we deal with honour killings?

By Letter to the Editor on March 26th, 2018

Re: “Deportation just shifts the problem somewhere else,” March 20 What a minefield of controversy this editorial evokes, without even a hint of a solution to the problem. First and foremost it must be remembered that citizenship of a country other than your birth is a privilege not a right. So how do we deal ... Read More »

Tax-and-spend socialist job creation at work

By Letter to the Editor on March 22nd, 2018

Re: “Barnes, Kenney shallow on carbon tax,” March 9 In Mr. Cote’s letter he suggests that politicians who are pro-carbon tax are progressive new-age thinkers and those that oppose are past their due date. Alberta has not reduced any other taxes to directly compensate for the carbon tax unlike B.C. that has a revenue neutral ... Read More »

Citizens on Patrol is doing something about rural crime, and making a difference! This has been a long and brutal winter and these people have been out there without fail — regardless of health & personal issues, -40 C and vehicle failure.

Canada should take the lead on tuberculosis

By Letter to the Editor on March 19th, 2018

I am repeating myself, as this question bears repeating with March 24, World TB Day, rapidly approaching. Why does tuberculosis persist, indeed, why does TB still exist? This is a curable disease and it is not limited to hard to reach corners of the world, it is alive and well, in fact thriving, in our ... Read More »

Face-to-face talks are far more respectful

By Letter to the Editor on March 17th, 2018

Re: “‘Clash of Ideas’ offer made,” Feb. 14 I’m pleased to see other readers of the Comments page extending coffee invitations. I had the pleasure of coffee with Mr. David Condon recently. Although I believe we are polarized politically I believe we found we shared some common ground. For example, we both believe there is ... Read More »
