  • Laying it Out: Choose each other before it’s too late

    Austerity measures and service cuts have clearly just begun, with another “ambitious legislative agenda” set to begin Feb. 25 – as if Albertans needed more proof of what the UCP’s plan is to deal with so-called financial problems. We could contemplate the true intent behind it all – a move to sabotage the public sector ... Read More »

  • MLA Report: Seeking your thoughts and ideas

    The definition of the word fair: As an adjective, “in accordance with the rules or standards.” As an adverb, “without cheating or trying to achieve unjust advantage.” I mention this because today at 5:30 p.m. in the Grandstand room at the Medicine Hat Stampede grounds, Alberta’s Fair Deal Panel is holding our 10th meeting.

  • Global warming .. are we sure it is a thing?

    As I sit here in Airdrie (just having returned from a short walk “to and from” my local grocery store), I contemplate whether the feeling in my hands and feet will ever come back due to this -28 degree (plus wind chill) cold snap most of Canada is suffering through. On top of that, while ... Read More »

  • We have rights and freedoms that are the envy of many

    The squeaking wheel will always get the grease. Sadly those who make the wheels squeak are often malcontents with thin skin who take offence needlessly.
