Canadians realizing there’s no substance behind PM’s flash

By Letter to the Editor on November 21st, 2016

Peter Mueller’s recent guest column on the federal by-election was interesting on its face value but disingenuous overall. First of all, Mr. Mueller seems to be somewhat geographically challenged. He claims that the provincial riding “covers roughly the same territory in the eastern half of the province” as the federal riding. Not true. Only a ... Read More »

Don’t judge care home on basis of one allegation

By Letter to the Editor on November 18th, 2016

Re: “Care home patient says she was left in her excrement all night,” Nov. 8 I am very disappointed, somewhat in shock, and a little angry that a single complaint involving one resident in a care home received such coverage in the local paper. In my opinion, such an incident should be dealt with privately. ... Read More »

Donald Trump understood what the voters really wanted

By Letter to the Editor on November 18th, 2016

The U.S. presidential election generally gets considerable attention worldwide for its international stature. The rather unusual campaign this time attracted more attention as well as a lot of emotion. Donald Trump’s win, which was unpredicted, has resulted in very strong emotional responses more so than analysis of the outcome. Why did a billionaire businessman with ... Read More »

By Letter to the Editor on November 17th, 2016

With the recently discovered case of bovine Tuberculosis (bTB) linked to a ranch in the Suffield area, landowners and hunters have expressed concerns that bTB may be present in elk and have the potential to infect cattle herds. In the late 1990s, when elk were introduced to CFB Suffield from Elk Island National Park all ... Read More »

Grace and contentment found in Redcliff

By Letter to the Editor on November 16th, 2016

One of my favourite things to do every year is to go to the Remembrance Day ceremony in Redcliff and sing with the Roving Choir. The Roving Choir is made up of the members of the church choirs. They sing at different events and funerals in Redcliff throughout the year. There are no practices for ... Read More »

Money is for counting, not spending

By Letter to the Editor on November 16th, 2016

Re: “National Affairs: Morneau’s fiscal update merely a sketch,” Nov. 5 Canada’s estimated federal and provincial debt for 2016 is $1.3 trillion. The interest payments on the debt in 2015 was $61 billion, or 8.1 per cent of government revenue, according to a Fraser Institute report from Jan. 15.

We’ve already seen where social Darwinism leads us

By Letter to the Editor on November 16th, 2016

Re: “Everyone deserves to be treated equally,” Oct. 26 According to Fred Lewis “The process of evolution has equipped us [mankind] with the compulsions (sic) to be kind to others” and “these traits improve survival.” How quickly we forget that social Darwinism that was the driving force behind Hitler’s belief that Aryans were an evolved ...

Test will soon come for new MP

By Letter to the Editor on November 15th, 2016

I have noticed a very disturbing parallel and comparison of church and state, which in some minds should never be mentioned in the same breath. Whether by design or fluke it appears that they definitely have the same motive. That is to say that each institution has paid hundreds of millions of dollars to compensate ... Read More »

Bill 6 is not going away, you may as well learn about it

By Letter to the Editor on November 15th, 2016

The Medicine Hat portion of the Alberta-Wide Rally Against NDP was a well organized event and the carbon-levy played a big part, but Alberta’s Bill 6, the Enhanced Protection for Farm & Ranch Workers Act was very much on the minds of many protesters. It was stated as the first issue on the list to ... Read More »

Trudeau policies don’t sell well here

By Letter to the Editor on November 10th, 2016

Firstly, a big thank you to the Medicine Hat News for providing a Comments page. I usually find amusing and insightful glimpses into the lefty progressive heart and mind. Len “Bleating Sheep” Jalbert or others, I find in their words the true intolerant nature of the progressive movement. After all, Mr. Jalbert, if a Liberal-progressive ... Read More »
