Injection sites column offers ‘ignorant view’ on drug debate

By Letter to the Editor on August 13th, 2018

I just received a copy of an article, entitled: “Doug Ford is dead right, injection sites are dead wrong,” written by somebody calling themselves Dr. Gifford Jones, written in The News on July 16, 2018. It is just amazing that in 2018, such an ignorant view could still have a place and a platform to ... Read More »

God behind Trump’s attempts to slow down New World Order’s ‘evil agenda’

By Letter to the Editor on August 10th, 2018

The Toronto Star editorial (Trump’s attacks on free press, Aug. 7 News) proves how far some will go to discredit the U.S. president. A more honest headline would have revealed an attack on a very biased press. In the first paragraph, alone, there were four examples of fake news: Trump’s Helsinki meeting with Putin was ...

Liberals not putting the safety of Canadians first with firearms legislation

By Letter to the Editor on August 10th, 2018

Canada’s Conservatives believe the safety of Canadians should be the No. 1 priority of any government. In light of Statistics Canada’s recently released 2017 crime report, it is evident that too little is being done to keep Canadians safe. Conservatives are troubled by growing crime rates and a government that puts the rights of criminals ... Read More »

Citizens should have a say before trees are removed

By Letter to the Editor on August 9th, 2018

Come every Sunday, one can view Medicine Hat Village’s overflowing garbage bins along Thirteenth Ave. S.E. — giving credence to those who identify the inhabitants as ‘trailer trash.’ Garbage is for viewing until Tuesday. In line with helping keep the city clean and green, management is preparing to remove long-standing trees. A year ago, tree ... Read More »

Impressed with golfers, parents and Golf Canada officials

By Letter to the Editor on August 9th, 2018

I was totally impressed with Golf Canada’s junior boys’ championship tournament last week at the Medicine Hat Golf and Country Club. Volunteering there for three of the four days was a great experience. The number of young men, and parents who took the time to say thank you to the volunteers was outstanding. Numerous parents ...

Column was ‘hot mess of socialist reasoning’

By Letter to the Editor on August 9th, 2018

Re: Peter Mueller column Aug. 4. It’s challenging to digest Peter Mueller’s hot mess of socialist reasoning in his recent editorial. Generally he’d like us to believe Jason Kenney is frazzled, the UCP is on the verge of collapse and Rachel Notley is both a hero and financial wizard. Specifically Peter tells us Jason Kenney ...

‘Selective memory’ exhibited by Wanner

By Letter to the Editor on August 8th, 2018

Re: MLA Report by Bob Wanner — July 27 In reviewing this report, I marvelled at the long explanation on age and family advice. Being somewhere near the same age of Bob Wanner, I think he has a selective memory regarding the legacy of previous (non NDP) governments. I am referring to the Conservatives from ... Read More »

Danforth killer’s family should be deported

By Letter to the Editor on August 8th, 2018

I am upset that the media are trying to make the Danforth murderer, Faisal Hussain, as the victim. The true victims were the 12 people shot and the young woman and girl that were killed. Recently, the Medicine Hat News published two editorials from the Canadian Press, one from the Hamilton Spectator on Aug. 1, ... Read More »

Cypress-Medicine Hat voters face interesting question at the polls

By Letter to the Editor on August 3rd, 2018

It would be quite interesting if Bob Wanner is the NDP candidate in the Cypress-Medicine Hat constituency. The contest would be an excellent opportunity to clarify recent political happenings in southeastern Alberta. Was Wanner’s victory in 2015 a random occurrence, or did the voters choose him because he would provide the best representation for our ... Read More »

Column was ‘fiction’

By Letter to the Editor on August 2nd, 2018

After reading the July 28 column of Paul McLennan Whatever happened to rational thought?, I was puzzled for a while. Then I thought about it and realized Mr. McLennan has chosen a new writing genre: fiction. Gregory R. Cote Irvine, ... Read More »
