Tory voters got tired of PCs’ actions

By Letter to the Editor on May 18th, 2017

Re: “NDP plans won’t help environment,” May 10 I wonder if Jim Taylor realizes how foolish he sounds? Those of us who proudly supported and volunteered for the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta under Lougheed and Getty know the present day conservatives aren’t anything like them. They cared about the well being of the people, ... Read More »

Disrespectful attitude spreading

By Letter to the Editor on May 17th, 2017

Re: “Federal Tories dismissing carbon pricing could be something they regret at the next election,” May 11 The condescending attitude towards Albertans simply shows the writer’s disrespect for fellow Canadians. The line “In case you haven’t heard yet Alberta” simply shows the typical and not uncommon “holier-than-thou” attitude expressed by most in Toronto towards Western ... Read More »

Recognizing symptoms and returning to balance

By Letter to the Editor on May 15th, 2017

It has been a little more than 20 years since I have been in the hospital for severe mental health problems. I have found that balance in my life that keeps me from having to go to regular therapy, med changes and psych wards. The most important is connecting with community — different communities in ...

Stand tall in defence of our democracy

By Letter to the Editor on May 15th, 2017

George Soros is the ultimate one percenter. His personal wealth of more than $30 billion comes from stock and currency trading (he made $4 billion in 2013 alone). Known as ‘the man who broke the Bank of England,’ he manipulated the British pound, forcing the B of E to spend 15 billion pounds to support ... Read More »

Sad loss of excellent city ambassador

By Letter to the Editor on May 13th, 2017

Re: “Distressing to lose Esplanade museum curator,” May 5 I could not agree more with the writer of the letter, an ill-conceived and thought-out plan. But no doubt all the faith will be put in to the Canalta Centre to carry the flag. I have friends and family all over the world who were so ... Read More »

By Letter to the Editor on May 12th, 2017

I wanted to make you and the people aware of the National March for Life that is being held in downtown Ottawa ending with a peaceful rally on Parliament Hill. Thousands usually attend this event and also the provincial march and peaceful rally at the Alberta Legislative building, both on May 11. As media does ... Read More »

Federal Tories dismissing carbon pricing could be something they regret at the next election

By Letter to the Editor on May 11th, 2017

By greeting the Hon. Michael Chong’s carbon tax proposal at Conservative leadership debates with boos and jeers, Conservatives are displaying dismissiveness for carbon pricing. The Conservative Party has only 259,010 members, which is not remotely enough to win the next election. Conservatives wanting to win the next election should note well that only two per ...

NDP plans won’t help environment

By Letter to the Editor on May 10th, 2017

Well it seems I struck a nerve with my friends who like to see themselves as protectors of our world. Both Mr. Hoffman and Mr. Gue wrote interesting, yet misguided responses. In his letter (“NDP on correct economic course,” April 18) Hoffman claims that the only information I provided was the carbon tax is a ... Read More »

Pleased with help from constituency office, civil servants

By Letter to the Editor on May 10th, 2017

I want to send out kudos to the office of Glen Motz, Member of Parliament for Medicine Hat. A problem surfaced with regard to a federal agency and myself and, caught up in bureaucratic procedure, I called the Motz office for assistance. Within one day of my telephone call, a Motz aide had contacted the ... Read More »

This could be a warming trend before a long winter

By Letter to the Editor on May 9th, 2017

“Climate change” is a phrase heard around the world. There could be more to this than carbon dioxide from the activities of man. The climate of the earth changes on a regular cycle. According to paleoclimatology, the study of ice cores in the antarctic and Greenland, more than 20 glacial advances and retreats have happened ... Read More »
