Online poll ‘disparaging’

By Letter to the Editor on July 21st, 2018

A recent online poll by the Medicine Hat News was quite disparaging toward used car Dealers in the city. My family and I have had a number of dealings with a locally owned and operated used car dealership on South Railway Street over the last 20 years or so. I have always found them to ... Read More »

They change after election

By Letter to the Editor on July 20th, 2018

A puzzling development in a politician’s brain takes place once he is elected, especially in the ones who are in opposition. Their brains turn into mash. One of our MLAs is talking about trimming the fat as in his MLA Report in the Medicine Hat News on June 15. As a lifelong free enterpriser, I’m ... Read More »

Who dropped the ball in the Suffield block?

By Letter to the Editor on July 20th, 2018

In the early 1990s concern over the changing ecosystems in the Suffield block culminated in removal of 1,200 feral horses who up to this point lived happily not bothering too many folks, except some genius bureaucrats who felt it necessary to have them removed as they were the cause of that eco-destruction. No one at ... Read More »

Beasley’s remarks called ‘highly offensive’

By Letter to the Editor on July 18th, 2018

The discriminatory and highly offensive remarks made by Mr. Beasley must run contrary to his party’s principles. He was a candidate for the “United” Conservative Party. United for who? Do Muslims not play a part in bettering this nation? I wonder if Todd Beasley has ever bothered to consult any credible Islamic literature or is ... Read More »

Pros and cons to the arrival of Aurora Sun in Medicine Hat

By Letter to the Editor on July 18th, 2018

I am writing concerning the new Aurora Sun facility. I believe this company could benefit our city yet if there are no restrictions, it could also worsen our city. Our city has had a shortage of jobs since the oil and gas crisis and bringing in this business could help fix that. Bringing in the ... Read More »

Proposed social studies curriculum a roadmap for manipulating student values

By Letter to the Editor on July 18th, 2018

I recently reviewed a copy of the proposed K-4 Social Studies Curriculum put out by Alberta Education. It is obvious now why Alberta Education has been so secretive and reluctant to allow public access to it. I was a teacher of K-12 for 23 years, a school principal for 11 years in both rural and ...

I am a Grade 8 student at Crescent Heights High School. I am writing about the new marijuana factory coming to Medicine Hat. I think that the city did a great job of bringing new economic options to Medicine Hat, especially since the downturn of the oil and gas industry. Although this is great for ... Read More »

Governments need to commit to TB fight

By Letter to the Editor on July 11th, 2018

Centuries of neglect have transformed tuberculosis, a curable disease, into the biggest infectious killer today, claiming more victims than HIV and malaria combined. Every year, 10 million human beings contract TB. Every year, 1.7 million die of it. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has shown great leadership by promising to end TB in Canada’s North, but ...

Pot concerns

By Letter to the Editor on July 9th, 2018

I’m writing about the new Aurora Sun greenhouse. I have a concern about the types of marijuana being sold. Will it just be medicinal marijuana or will there be recreational marijuana also? If there’s recreational marijuana there’s a big concern about crime and people on the streets in regards to how people will act. But ... Read More »
