Letter: Smith not necessarily front-runner

By Letter to the Editor on August 3rd, 2022

Dear editor, Following the UCP leadership debate this week, I was disappointed by the News’s July 29 front page headline “Smith deemed front-runner.” In the article several political analysts are quoted to have reached the conclusion that Smith is leading the race due to the fact that the other candidates focused most of their attacks ...

Letter: Recent letter’s assertion of Emergencies Act and how it was implemented is false

By Letter to the Editor on July 14th, 2022

Dear Editor: Re: July 13 letter from Mr. Ken Pirie Mr. Pirie was inaccurate calling the Emergencies Act the “Emergency Measures Act,” which has never existed. The Emergencies Act was passed by Mr. Mulroney’s government in 1987 to replace the old War Measures Act. As for loss of rights under our Charter of Rights and ... Read More »

Letter: Liberals need a train straight out of Ottawa

By Letter to the Editor on July 14th, 2022

Dear editor, More Liberal arrogance and ignorance. The orange romper clad convicted eco terrorist Federal Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault has yet again shown the arrogance we expect from Liberal politicians. He announced in Glasgow Scotland he would be touring Canada by Via Rail. Problem is Via Rail, a federal Crown corporation, stopped service to five ... Read More »

Letter: Trudeau is the divisive extremist, not Poilievre

By Letter to the Editor on July 13th, 2022

Dear editor, In response to a letter published July 05, 2022 Personally, I can’t wait for the day Pierre Poilievre becomes Prime Minister of this country; Trudeau, Singh and company are damaged goods well beyond their political “best by date.” This is exactly why people like Mr. Spiller are now trying to demonize Pierre Poilievre ...

Letter: The evil we know better than the evil we had

By Letter to the Editor on July 13th, 2022

Dear editor, Auf Wiedersehen is often used as ‘goodbye’, the more literal German meaning is ‘on seeing (one/you) again.” Here we are again with another election in the not so distant future. Clowns of all political stripes are maneuvering to take the stage soon. Herr Mueller advocates for a socialist NDP victory, but I am ... Read More »

Letter: Enough with the extremist-loving fake conservatism

By Letter to the Editor on July 5th, 2022

Dear editor, The true conservatives in my world have had it with these fake conservatives and their supporters treating Albertans and Canadians like morons while they try to copy the American-style Republican Party extremists’ brand of stupidity. Apparently Pierre Poilievre hasn’t learned that this type of stupidity got Andrew Scheer and Erin O’Toole defeated, yet ... Read More »

Letter: United Conservatives are just not qualified to hold government in this province

By Letter to the Editor on June 30th, 2022

Dear editor, There are many reasons to not vote for the UCP in May 2023. Think mishandling of COVID mandates, picking fights with doctors, nurses, teachers, underfunding university and colleges and financially manipulating faculty offerings, increasing tuition fees, insurance premiums, camping fees, park entry fees, doling out billions to corporations and phantom pipelines, and funding ...

Letter: Men need to stop offering their ‘expertise’ on abortion rights

By Letter to the Editor on June 30th, 2022

Dear Mr. Weekly Cultural Anthropology, I disagree with you about abortion and believe that if you *truly* understood or cared about the issue at hand, you would be able to reflect that as a man, this is not your conversation to have. Before you respond with an archaic argument about “equality,” or whatever “what about”-ism ... Read More »

Letter: Government and bureaucrats continue to be waste of time, money

By Letter to the Editor on June 28th, 2022

Dear editor, You know, folks, if it were not true it would be laughable. We have our $200,000-a-year MPs who work 20 weeks a year demanding the RCMP investigate RCMP commissioner for corruption – you think the fix might be in? The Liberal and NDP federal government, now on a 16-week paid vacation, have passed ... Read More »

Letter: Differing gun culture no reason to avoid our neighbours to the south

By Letter to the Editor on June 28th, 2022

Dear Editor, The recently publicized USA decision regarding the right to carry a gun for protection reminds me of just how different Canadians are. Of course Canadians also own guns, but far fewer than in the U.S., and it is typically for recreational purposes. I just returned from a short U.S. visit to Seattle, (via ... Read More »

Letter: Can you really trust parties that constantly fight themselves?

By Letter to the Editor on June 28th, 2022

Dear Editor: Anyone intending to vote conservative in the next provincial and federal elections should do four things.’ Firstly, read the words of Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner, one of the most highly respected conservative politicians in Canada. In her refusal to run for Alberta’s UCP leadership, Ms. Rempel Garner said the following about Alberta’s ... Read More »
