Congratulations to school boards

By Letter to the Editor on May 19th, 2020

I want to thank and congratulate the local school districts for standing up to Jason Kenny’s government by refusing to lay off educational assistants. Not every district in Alberta was able to do so of course, so at the time when parents and students need the most help, our UCP government pulls it away. Special ... Read More »

They have told me their policy is “no refunds.” That’s fine if I were the one cancelling, but they did it. Since they can’t give the service, I believe there ... Read More »

Taxpayers should be concerned they are not being told the full truth with the cost of the well abandonment project the city is embarking on.

Take life one day at a time

By Letter to the Editor on May 5th, 2020

I thought I was doing OK but now I am listening to the radio hearing about provinces wanting to gradually reopen. I think too soon, nobody knows enough about this virus. I get that people want to get back to their old life, what their used to but I have a feeling that a second ... Read More »
