Sneaking a point in

By Letter to the Editor on March 24th, 2017

Policy, not words, needed to help First Nations

By Letter to the Editor on March 23rd, 2017

Re: “Comments on residential schools were a slap in the face,” March 14 What a wonderful editorial comparing the Holocaust to Canada’s residential schools! I guess I already knew that exterminating over 6 million Jews was a major bad thing. What never crossed my mind until today was to compare that with how my ancestors ... Read More »

First experience at new diagnostic lab unsatisfying

By Letter to the Editor on March 22nd, 2017

I visited the new diagnostic laboratory on the morning of March 9. I found the experience unsatisfactory. The system for processing of data seemed cumbersome and repetitious. I felt I’d stepped back to a time before carbon paper. Wait times were very long, my phlebotomist showed little evidence of training, as I have 25 tears ... Read More »

Comment about APARC incredibly uninformed

By Letter to the Editor on March 21st, 2017

On March 16 we received calls and emails from a number of Hatters to look at a your Ticked Off and Tickled Pink column, and for good reason.

Using ‘green’ to get rich

By Letter to the Editor on March 20th, 2017

Have parts of the world have been fooled by a climate conspiracy, grown almost to a quasi-religion? If not, then why the need for falsification of climate data? Follow the power and greed.

Mind, body and spirit for positive mental health

By Letter to the Editor on March 17th, 2017

Seeing Clara Hughes and Howie Mandel finally approaching the subject of mental illness, and on such a large scale recently, was monumental for me. When I “came out of the fog” in 2015, I wanted to spearhead. I didn’t have the confidence, nor could I string eight hours together without having to have a rest, ... Read More »
