How much did Klein cuts cost Alberta taxpayers?

By Letter to the Editor on July 19th, 2017

Being a Conservative I would like to blame the Khadr disaster on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also but can’t. I remember the warnings the lawyers and judges were giving then-PM Stephen Harper, that if he didn’t handle it properly we could be in trouble. Harper wouldn’t listen. This is the same Harper who treated our ... Read More »

It’s time for our divorce laws to change

By Letter to the Editor on July 19th, 2017

I am angry! Would you choose to pay $250,000 or $500,000 or maybe more for absolutely nothing in return? No, you would assume it to be a scam. In this case, it’s called spousal support and is sanctioned by our legal system! Those being targeted are men (and only very occasionally women) who have stayed ... Read More »

Anthem lyric change not a big deal

By Letter to the Editor on July 18th, 2017

Bravo to the News and its coverage and promotion of Canada’s 150th birthday. The newspaper on July 1 was great with the Canadian flag once again printed for those inclined to post it in a window or wherever. However, there is one area that your proof readers slipped up on and that is the printing ... Read More »

Government should be ashamed for caving in to terrorist Khadr

By Letter to the Editor on July 13th, 2017

As a retired soldier I am not only appalled at the apology and millions of our tax dollars being given to a convicted murder, I am personally offended. I proudly served in the Canadian military for 20 years and retired just as proud with the rank of warrant officer. I know soldiers who came home ... Read More »

Uproar about Halifax Canada Day protest is ‘gobbledygook’

By Letter to the Editor on July 12th, 2017

The five Canadian Armed Forces members, Proud Boys, are being investigated, but they are now suspended for alleged racism against the protesters at the statue of General Cornwallis in Halifax on Canada Day. The so-called Mi’kmaq protestors did not include any Aboriginals. Chief Mama Grizzly is no aboriginal chief, she is some person from British ... Read More »

Canadian gov’t must protect our sovereignty in NAFTA renegotiations

By Letter to the Editor on July 7th, 2017

Re: “Canada most sued nation under NAFTA,” June 29 If only one positive thing comes from Donald Trump being elected president of the U.S., then perhaps the opportunity to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is it. This so-called trade deal has given us Chapter 11 corporate lawsuits that have cost Canada tens ... Read More »

‘Reform Party boys’ will only make things worse for people of Alberta

By Letter to the Editor on July 7th, 2017

Re: “July’s unity vote should be no confidence on leader Brian Jean,” July 4 Joe Anglin’s recent letter said what many of us true conservatives have been saying since Ralph Klein became premier: You can’t trust any of them. They will do anything, or say anything, to get elected and they don’t care who gets ... Read More »

Concerns raised by concert attacks

By Letter to the Editor on July 5th, 2017

In May we were awakened by the tragedy of the Ariana Grande concert disaster in Manchester. What did we learn from this? This isn’t the first time there have been disasters at concerts. We need to be careful here in Medicine Hat so we don’t have similar disasters. We need to learn from past events ... Read More »

July’s unity vote should be no confidence on leader Brian Jean

By Letter to the Editor on July 4th, 2017

It’s praiseworthy to unite like-minded conservatives under one political entity. This July both the PC and Wildrose parties will vote to merge into one entity called the United Conservative Party. The proposal, while laudable on its surface, raises some serious questions about the motives and integrity of the architects of the merger. Among the fundamental ... Read More »

JazzFest a great show once again

By Letter to the Editor on June 30th, 2017

I want to express my appreciation to Lyle Rebbeck and the organizers and volunteers that put the Jazzfest on. So many people say to me “I don’t like jazz” but if you open your mind and come out to try something new you will be pleasantly surprised. All the venues are amazing especially the airport ...
