Albertans won’t be left on ‘side of the road’

By Letter to the Editor on August 16th, 2018

Re: “In Greyhound’s wake, gov’t should stay off the bus, Aug. 13 Greyhound Canada’s decision to cut services in Western Canada this fall will have a major impact on many rural Albertans, contrary to what Lee Harding wrote in his recent letter to the editor. Many Albertans — particularly those living in rural, remote, and ... Read More »

Changing governments, changing agendas

By Letter to the Editor on August 15th, 2018

As this letter may create a public uproar I want to state I am entitled to my opinion just as anyone else is entitled to theirs. In response to the environment minister of Alberta regarding Hatters being aware or unaware of what a Conservative government will do about an NDP agenda that the Conservatives had ... Read More »

Rumoured location of safe consumption site comes with too much potential harm

By Letter to the Editor on August 15th, 2018

Lately, there has been extensive discussion regard the proposed safe consumption site for Medicine Hat. Based upon the rumours, the site is to be located in the former Captain’s Cabin pub. It is my understanding that the site must be approved by Health Canada, and the local community has no say in the location. Further, ... Read More »

Only one stepped up to apply for the nomination

By Letter to the Editor on August 15th, 2018

This is not so much of a letter as it is a short clarification response to a letter published on Aug. 3, “Cypress-Medicine Hat voters face interesting question at the polls,” by Mr. Larry Samcoe. There are a few, unintentional I am sure, inaccurate claims made in his letter regarding the UCP’s candidate selection process ... Read More »

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 ...
