Letters to the Editor

Ban is about preventing further terror attacks

By Letter to the Editor on February 7th, 2017

Re: “Afraid for the world,” Feb. 1 A recent letter to the editor made me afraid for the mental health of a few of my fellow Canadians. It accused the legally elected president of the U.S. of “Polarizing and misdirecting the anger of poor Americans against millions of innocent people, simply based on the color ... Read More »

Elect governments based on what they stand for

By Letter to the Editor on February 7th, 2017

The provincial PC Party leadership race has really been ratcheted up in both intensity and viciousness over the past few weeks. Way back when Jason Kenney announced his leadership bid, I was quoted as saying that he wouldn’t succeed at uniting the right because the PC Party is a centrist, big tent party, not a ...

Grateful for work of PCNs

By Letter to the Editor on February 6th, 2017

I write in admiration for the primary care network nurses. I am fortunate to have a doctor who utilizes a PCN. I find it perplexing to even imagine the education, and continous education they endure. Physican time is freed up, while the PCN educates, and reviews your case. You are firstly greeted with a smile ... Read More »

Shocked by comment at PC leadership debate

By Letter to the Editor on February 4th, 2017

I went to the Alberta PC leadership debate in Medicine Hat and I was shocked when Mr. Kenney made a comment about property rights. Kenney is taking the position he would rather let Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberals control property rights in Alberta. I also took note that during the discussion about Bill 10 ...

Blatant conflict of interest

By Letter to the Editor on February 3rd, 2017

The Shattered Mirror report on journalism is another example of blatant conflict of interest. Ed Greenspon has worked at the “intersection of journalism, business and public policy” for 30 years and now he wants the Liberal government to tax successful enterprises to prop up the ethically morally and financially bankrupt media outlets so they can ...

Feds need to address how U.S. ban impacts truck drivers

By Letter to the Editor on February 3rd, 2017

People who think this U.S. Muslim ban will not impact Canada have not considered all facts. I remember when Germany did not join George W. Bush when he said “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.” I was working with a truck driver that escaped East Berlin and he was detained ... Read More »

A more positive perspective is needed

By Letter to the Editor on February 3rd, 2017

I would like to know why Mr. McLennan is so negative and biased towards Mr. Mueller and others who are of the same mind. When I read Mr. McLennan’s columns, I feel the man should put aside some of his former police state views, roll a big fatty, sit down, have a hit or two ... Read More »

U.S. Keystone decision a win for Alberta

By Letter to the Editor on February 3rd, 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump’s approval of the Keystone XL pipeline is great news for Alberta and our oil and gas sector. The U.S. State Department acknowledged for years that this pipeline would be good for job creation while protecting the environment. Unfortunately, the independent approval process was politicized by the previous administration. President Trump’s announcement ... Read More »

Column written to cause needless concern

By Letter to the Editor on February 2nd, 2017

Re: “The issues that should alarm us,” Jan. 30 An alarmist is one who exaggerates a danger and so causes needless worry or panic. Paul McLennan raises the alarm on 10 issues which are phrased to cause needless concern. It would be humane to at least offer solutions to his observations so that the public ... Read More »

Questioning O’Leary

By Letter to the Editor on February 1st, 2017

Just over one year ago, in a Canadian Press article printed in the Medicine Hat News on Jan. 15, Kevin O’Leary is reported to have offered to invest $1 million in Canadian energy companies if Rachel Notley would resign as premier of Alberta. I question how this offer can avoid the prohibition under Canada’s Criminal ... Read More »
