No wonder there’s talk about banning hunting

By Letter to the Editor on January 6th, 2018

I’d like the hunter or hunters who disposed of the remains of two deer by throwing them off the bridge into the bed of the Ross Creek in Irvine to know two things. 1. Serious hunters would be upset with you guys. 2. You have been reported to the authorities and there are more clues ... Read More »

Let’s learn from recent homeless/cold crisis and work toward better solution

By Letter to the Editor on January 6th, 2018

I will start by saying thank God nobody froze to death during the -30C holiday weather. That does not mean we do not have a problem and one that doesn’t need to be addressed. I think the problem that the administration from housing has tried to deal with for a couple of years is the ... Read More »

Reality check needed to realize how bad homeless situation is in Medicine Hat

By Letter to the Editor on January 6th, 2018

I would like to applaud the recent articles that Gillian Slade wrote regarding homelessness in Medicine Hat. It is alive and doing well. While most of us take for granted shelter, and warmth, we need to remember there is a large group of people in our community that suffer from bitterly cold conditions of winter, ... Read More »

If our society doesn’t fight ‘forces of progressive leftist evil’ then evil will win

By Letter to the Editor on January 5th, 2018

I buy The News primarily for the comments section and am regularly entertained and enlightened. I’d like to write about two recent submissions — “Poisonous Partisanship,” a Dec. 2 guest column by Peter Mueller; and “Column personified intolerance” — a rebuttal letter Dec. 12 from Lynn Thacker. I was moved by Mr. Mueller’s words to ... Read More »

Tickled pink about regular News feature

By Letter to the Editor on January 5th, 2018

Contributors to Ticked Off and Tickled Pink in the News have recently been rather harshly criticized as ignorant, cowards and childlike. But, it is the News itself which invites, encourages and publishes these different comments. This feature must be fairly rated by management since it is twice a week in this paper. Anonymity undoubtedly gives ... Read More »

Kudos for Kiwanis dinner

By Letter to the Editor on January 5th, 2018

Last month marked the annual Kiwanis Christmas dinner at the Stampede grounds. The dinner is an opportunity for those who don’t have family or a place to go at Christmas to enjoy a meal and quality entertainment as well as a chance for social fellowship. Hats off to the Kiwanis for their efforts. Derrick Colleaux ... Read More »

Those of Christian faith helped develop Canada

By Letter to the Editor on January 4th, 2018

Canada has many reasons to be proud of its first 150 years. We have achieved advances in intellectual, industrial, economic and other fields. We should remember that the inspiration and hard work behind much of what we value came from the Christian faith of many of our pioneers. Explorers Samuel de Champlain and David Thompson, ...

Obeying the Gospel is life changing

By Letter to the Editor on January 2nd, 2018

Re: “Science doesn’t align itself with religion,” Dec. 15 Science is the discovery of what God has created! Could they be any closer aligned? As you say science can be self-testing but so can the Bible, the inspired Word of God. How? Check out the hundreds of prophecies literally fulfilled; for example, Isaiah’s prophecy of ...

NDP no longer champions for seniors

By Letter to the Editor on December 29th, 2017

The NDP has been hijacked by special interest groups. They have taken away the non-repayable grants for seniors to repair and stay in their homes, regardless of their income. Yet, you see and hear all the media reports about non-repayable grants to certain projects and friends to their liking. No different than the previous two ... Read More »

Get educated, and eat all the jelly beans

By Letter to the Editor on December 28th, 2017

Re: “Politics 101: Governments should always encourage self-reliance,” Dec. 18 The writer labours under a faulty definition of identity politics. He declares that it is governments that engage in identity politics. Wikipedia declares that “Identity politics are used by minority and civil rights organizations to form a coalition with members of the majority.” The writer ... Read More »
