  • City Notebook: Vaccines are rolling but we have a ways to go yet

    cgallant@medicinehatnews.com@CollinGallant This week provincial health authority began distributing the coronavirus vaccine to a large portion of the general public.

  • Letter: City council needs term limits

    Dear editor, I believe term limits should be mandated for city council, including the mayor’s office and elected members of council. Two terms should suffice. If you cannot achieve what you set out to achieve in eight years, then something is wrong with your efforts. Staggering the vote so half the members carry forward each ... Read More »

  • Letter: Why revise curriculum if Albertans are satisfied with it?

    Dear editor, From October to November 2016, Albertans were invited by the NDP government to participate in a provincial Kindergarten to Grade 12 Curriculum Survey. Results from a closed-ended survey of Albertans in 2016 indicated strong support for much of the content in the then-current curriculum across all subjects. However, recently the UCP decided to ...
