Only one person can fix the world

By Letter to the Editor on March 2nd, 2018

Peter Mueller’s crusade against Paul McLennan and Donald Trump has veered into dangerous new territory: God’s government and His Son, Jesus Christ’s Church. In his major change of course, Mueller will discover it is foolishness to equate Canadian and U.S. conservatives, operating in our dying so-called democracies, with the government of a Supreme and Sovereign ...

Perplexed by continuing pipeline dispute

By Letter to the Editor on February 28th, 2018

I am perplexed by the Alberta-B.C. pipeline dispute being allowed to continue. The Canadian government approved this pipeline months ago, and they are still consulting with the two provinces. Consultations were completed before the decision was made, and now it is time for them to enforce their decision. Why are they still consulting — because ... Read More »

Don’t think of degrees of disability

By Letter to the Editor on February 28th, 2018

March 1 is the Day of Mourning, when vigils are held for people with disabilities who have been murdered by their family and caregivers over the past year. These are held mostly in the United States and on the internet. Other people are murdered by their families but with people with disabilities it is often ... Read More »

Politicians should remember who gave them their job

By Letter to the Editor on February 28th, 2018

Are politicians genetically defective? There’s a study that shows positions of power tend to attract psychopaths and sociopaths and from what we’re seeing we shouldn’t doubt it. This Alberta-BC pipeline/wine feud is ludicrous. We all have rights to safety and security. But not according to the power-tripping psychopaths and sociopaths. Kinder Morgan doesn’t care about ...

Violence in the name of religion is not the answer

By Letter to the Editor on February 27th, 2018

“Where have all the flowers gone…..” a well-known song from the 1960s ends. When will they ever learn? Reading and watching the news and seeing the same scenes of man’s inhumanity to man replayed over and over, year after year, generation after generation, era after era, reminded me of that song and the eternal question; ...

Why push for crude to be exported?

By Letter to the Editor on February 24th, 2018

I sympathize with those in British Columbia who are opposed to an additional oil pipeline without sufficient environmental guarantees. The people who have the power to force the pipeline to be built are not the ones who will suffer the consequences of the inevitable oil spills. The bullying to which the latter are being subjected ... Read More »

A global call for Canada’s financial assistance

By Letter to the Editor on February 23rd, 2018

In our increasingly interconnected world, we must acknowledge the millions of people living in a poverty we will never fully comprehend. Yes, there is poverty in Canada but there’s no good reason we can’t address both the poverty here and the poverty abroad. We are one of the richest countries on the planet, making it ... Read More »

Biblical prophecies have been fulfilled

By Letter to the Editor on February 23rd, 2018

In reply to Dale Kosie’s “Prophecies ambiguous to the point of absurdity” I give him three crystal clear prophecies with their fulfillment: 1) Micah ch.5v2. “But you Bethlehem Ephratah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be the Ruler in Israel, ...

Need RCMP action to stop rural thief

Reported with a very clear description, Dodge truck, white with black passenger door and fender, diesel, flat deck, dually with one odd tire tread on rear. Suspect is about 6-foot, larger build, tattoos around neck. ... Read More »

Federal gov’t summer employment program is discriminatory

By Letter to the Editor on February 21st, 2018

In my view, the federal government is discriminating against those who do not share its moral values in the Summer Employment Grant Program. I think it is an assault on freedom of religion and freedom of conscience in Canada. Val T. Felesky Medicine Hat... Read More »
