A disagreement over God and the federal election

By Letter to the Editor on November 13th, 2019

Re: “CPC’s social conservative culture led to Scheer’s loss,” Nov. 6 Should I thank you, Mr. Thomsen for your “informed” and “well thought out” perspective on religion and politics? Should I appreciate your free-flowing insights as they meandered aimlessly between political anti-conservatism and theological anti-theism? I do agree with you that perhaps the reference to ...

By working together we can make the necessary changes

By Letter to the Editor on November 13th, 2019

The recent climate strikes by students in Medicine Hat, and indeed around the world, have served to nudge us out of our lull. Climate conversations are happening in homes, classrooms, staff rooms, and cafes. Severe weather events, disappearing ice, rising sea water, species extinctions… the trend is increasingly obvious, even to former deniers. There is ... Read More »

Wanner an ‘inspiration to both young and old’

By Letter to the Editor on November 13th, 2019

Re: “Out of the frying pan and into a cluttered garage,” Nov. 2 I enjoyed reading the article on Bob Wanner, our previous Medicine Hat MLA. Some of his contributions were noted, but as with exceptional people, there were far more exceptional merits and accomplishments by him. Raised on a farm in southern Saskatchewan, educated ...

Why do some people refuse to read?

By Letter to the Editor on November 9th, 2019

Re: “Watch your climate language,” Nov. 6 The science of climate change caused by humans is settled just as the science of vaccines and autism is settled. Yet we continue to suffer the repetition of Facebook fictions in public forums and letters. Barb Taylor has produced a letter that is totally devoid of factual content; ... Read More »

Propaganda by our provincial government

By Letter to the Editor on November 9th, 2019

Our great provincial leader has set up a “war room” with taxpayers’ money to combat negative voices that don’t support the oil and gas industry. In reality this is propaganda by our provincial government. It’s a sad day when big business can’t defend itself. We sheep know when the wool is being pulled over our ... Read More »

Take note of the Gulf of St. Lawrence

By Letter to the Editor on November 8th, 2019

Re: “Watch your climate language,” Nov. 6 The Magdalene Islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence have received some recent press coverage in other media. It seems scientists are interested because the Gulf of St. Lawrence is remarkable due to the significant warming that is happening there. It seems this temperature increase has caused the ...

Crony Capitalism is winning

By Letter to the Editor on November 8th, 2019

Crony Capitalism refers to a capitalist society that is based on the close relationships between business people and the state. Instead of success being determined by a free market and the rule of law, the success of a business is dependent on the favouritism that is shown to it by the government in the form ... Read More »

What are you willing to give up?

By Letter to the Editor on November 7th, 2019

The climate change agenda this is being whipped up around the world is failing to ask its followers one thing: What are you willing to give up to save your beloved planet? Children are asked to carry signs, yell slogans and spout platitudes but I see politicians like Barack Obama buying oceanfront property in Martha’s ... Read More »

CPC’s social conservative culture led to Scheer’s loss

By Letter to the Editor on November 6th, 2019

Peter MacKay blaming Andrew Scheer for the Conservative Party’s loss at the polls during the October election is grossly misplaced. The root cause is our so-called Constitution, that in reality is nothing but an Act of Parliament, and the preamble to the Charter section that in part states Canada is founded upon principles that recognize ...

Watch your climate language

By Letter to the Editor on November 6th, 2019

Careless talk about climate change is treacherous. There is a gigantic difference between natural climate change and human-caused climate change. As Albertans, we see proof all around us that climate naturally changes (effects of ice sheets and fossils from tropical forests). The millions of years of cyclic natural climate change have been well documented through ... Read More »
