Support for MP’s Motion 47

By Letter to the Editor on October 31st, 2016

“There’s just something about the plethora of violent porn that is disturbing to me, particularly when you consider its ready availability to people who are under the age of 18.” Who said that? You might guess it was a medical professional, thinking about children’s mental health. It might have been an educator concerned about the ... Read More »

Byelection was a ‘catch-22’ for Prime Minister Trudeau

By Letter to the Editor on October 28th, 2016

I find it pathetic and appalling that the Conservative Party of Canada spin doctors are attempting to use the prime minister’s visit to Medicine Hat as a rallying cry for the election win by Mr. Motz. Most rational people would have realized very early that this byelection was a catch-22 for Justin Trudeau. A failure ... Read More »

By Letter to the Editor on October 27th, 2016

The Alberta Wide Rally will be held on Nov. 5, at 12 noon, in cities across the province. We will have speakers who will express their stories on how the NDP policies are affecting their daily lives.

Carbon tax plan has too many risks

By Letter to the Editor on October 26th, 2016

Dr. Ian Lee of the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University has explained the model for our governments’ green plans. It is unusual that these left-leaning governments which have always questioned the market economy have opted for this model in dealing with carbon emissions. Their basic economic principle is that an increase in price ... Read More »

Finding the silver linings

By Letter to the Editor on October 25th, 2016

I have had a new disability in my life since June which I find amusing. It sticks out more than my other disabilities and draws more attention at times but I find that it is not as troubling as being bipolar on it’s difficult days. Or as mind numbing as “The Joy of Autism” as ... Read More »

PM’s grandstanding is expensive

By Letter to the Editor on October 25th, 2016

In September our prime minister gave $765 million over two years to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis as an Ottawa crowd chanted “Canada is Back.” From 2001 to 2015 Canada donated a total of $1.8 billion to this fund — an amount averaging $120 million a year and equivalent to other ...

Justin Trudeau: Like father, like son

By Letter to the Editor on October 22nd, 2016

Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s imposition of his National Energy Program in 1980 was aimed squarely at Alberta — I know, I was here. Today, Justin Pierre Trudeau’s threatened unilateral imposition of a national carbon tax, his “National Environmental Program,” which pre-empts climate negotiations with Canada’s premiers, is also aimed squarely at Alberta. The effect on Alberta ... Read More »

Carbon taxes destructive

By Letter to the Editor on October 22nd, 2016

I see all these red signs around. I hear from people that Stan Sakamoto is a good person. I am sure he is. However, I think we need to look beyond that and what the Liberals represent. The Liberals, I believe, are about changing our way of life and not in a good way. This ... Read More »
