Many things can put democracy in peril

By Letter to the Editor on February 23rd, 2017

Re: “Democracy in peril from the left,” Feb. 11 The column by Paul McLennan is interesting and perhaps a little frightening. Considering the practice of all newspapers, Mr McLennan is probably not the author responsible for the headline, but regardless, one needs to be aware that democracy can be in peril from the right as ...

Enforce border rules

By Letter to the Editor on February 23rd, 2017

I am an immigrant and a veteran. I watched on CTV News as RCMP officers loaded migrants suitcases into their Ford Escape, I think, and drove these migrants to the border crossing. I respectfully suggest they should have sent them back immediately to the U.S. Border Patrol. This sort of migration undermines the acceptance of ... Read More »

Long-term solution for waste management needed

By Letter to the Editor on February 21st, 2017

I recycle, as does all most everyone I know, in some form or another. I don’t think I do it to save the planet. I think I do it mostly to put a little change in my jeans and also because of the warning years ago that our landfill would be full by by the ... Read More »

Astronomy club hopeful for solution to greenhouse lights

By Letter to the Editor on February 18th, 2017

Members of the Medicine Hat Astronomy Club read with interest the articles in the Medicine Hat News regarding the light pollution emitted from the greenhouses within the county. We were glad that this issue was raised as this is a problem for our club, and it has recently become more of an issue with the ... Read More »

Disgusted by carbon tax, feeling humiliated

By Letter to the Editor on February 17th, 2017

I feel once again disgusted that these so-called government people believe they can do whatever they want and stuff garbage down our throats. I received the so-called rebate to help out with this putrid carbon tax. It says they deposited $100 into my account. I don’t use direct deposit. I feel totally disgraced, as I ... Read More »

Railcar graffiti not what it used to be

By Letter to the Editor on February 16th, 2017

I thought with all the negative stuff in the newspapers, on TV, the internet, etc. and even the arguments between individuals in the letters to the editor (which I know often are the best parts and highly prized by the editors and many of the readers, myself included) perhaps I could write something that I ...

Tragedy was a result of an ignorant attitude

By Letter to the Editor on February 15th, 2017

It seems that the trend of Islamophobia that had been magnified since last year’s U.S. election, has reached its summit in the Quebec City shootings. The lives of innocent human beings — forget being Muslim — were taken away on the grounds of their faith. No Muslim, Christian, Jew or atheist deserves any sort of ... Read More »

A little respect for opposing ideas and the people who hold them can go a long way

By Letter to the Editor on February 13th, 2017

Re: “Democracy in peril from the left,” Feb. 11 Paul McLennan advocates a schoolyard way of dealing with bullies. “One punch in the nose.” He says it worked for him. Now, a bully, according to the Miriam-Webster online dictionary, is “a blustering, browbeating person; one who is habitually cruel, insulting or threatening….” Reading further in ... Read More »

Fearful history will repeat itself and refusing to jump on the bandwagon

By Letter to the Editor on February 13th, 2017

Wow. It finally happened. For quite some time I have been trying to drive home the point of mutual respect with Muslims in our society. Not asking anyone to agree with the faith, just respect our right to be different and live in peace. I always mention trying not to brush on faith with one ... Read More »

Bombardier and our underpaid soldiers

By Letter to the Editor on February 10th, 2017

It appears that there is no end to the amount of money Bombardier, the Quebec-based and friend-to-the-family-of-Prime-Minister-Justin-Trudeau airplane manufacturing company, can receive from the taxpayer. The amount of the so-called loan is $345 million. Over the years the total amount “loaned” by the taxpayers of Canada has reached over $1 billion. Now on the same ... Read More »
