UCP creating unemployment

By Letter to the Editor on November 11th, 2020

Dear Editor, Jason Kenny and the UPC ran on a platform of creating jobs for Albertans and getting Albertans back to work. He and his government just announced cuts of 11,000 jobs by privatizing laundry, lab work and food services in AHS and cutting 930 jobs in the public service. So public service jobs are ...

Blindness to Trump’s character contrary to Christ’s teachings

By Letter to the Editor on November 11th, 2020

Dear Editor, What I, a believer in Christ’s unmistakable miracles, find much more disturbing than Donald Trump’s fan base are the strong supporters who consider themselves Christian. The Biblical Jesus was unquestionably the opposite of the president’s character; he was all about compassion, pacifism and absolute charity. He clearly would not tolerate such superfluous wealth ...

By Letter to the Editor on November 4th, 2020

So Bloc Québécois leader Blanchard is demanding the federal government apologize for having invoked the War Measures Act 50 years ago to reign in the FLQ separatist group in Quebec who were on a kidnapping and murder spree.

Any new multiplex belongs on south side

By Letter to the Editor on November 3rd, 2020

Dear editor, A few short years ago, and much to the chagrin of the majority of Medicine Hat taxpayers, Mayor Ted Clugston announced the Canalta Centre (recently renamed Co-op Place) would be built in the Box Springs Business Park. This dubious decision to build a facility costing in excess of $65 million in such a ... Read More »

We are playing school curriculum ping-pong

By Letter to the Editor on November 2nd, 2020

Dear editor, Surprise, surprise, the UPC proposed changes to the NDP K-4 school curriculum is receiving a negative response from the Progressivists in Colleges of Education and ATA. The ‘Progresssivist’ philosophy of education believes ‘what’ a student learns is less important than ‘how’ a student learns. Therefore, progressivist educators detest any curriculum that would prescribe ... Read More »

Cuts aren’t fun but we can’t afford nice things right now

By Letter to the Editor on November 2nd, 2020

Dear editor, There are some very difficult decisions that need to be made in regard to budget cuts of our health-care system and all other levels of government business. Our province is going broke and no one wants the cuts to come from the portion of the health-care system that affects them or their families. ... Read More »

Can’t we get along on trails?

By Letter to the Editor on October 29th, 2020

Dear editor, Generally I agree with John MacLaren on his letters to the editor, but I cannot agree with his latest letter suggesting that all trails in Medicine Hat should be designated as on-leash areas, citing aggressive dog behaviour as a reason.  I’m not sure how many trails in Medicine Hat still have off leash ...

Treatment of Albertans on AISH is a travesty

By Letter to the Editor on October 27th, 2020

Dear editor, There is little doubt that the AISH program as it is now administered, is broken and fails those who have navigated through a plethora of minefields to actually get approved to receive it. But now to punish the recipients of it further financially by taking away their monthly benefits, including prescription drug coverage, ... Read More »

Treat others the way you want to be treated

By Letter to the Editor on October 24th, 2020

Dear editor, To mask, or not to mask. That seems to be the “operative question” during these days of living with COVID 19. Given that we do not have a “definitive cure/treatment ” for COVID-19; given that we do not have a vaccine for COVID-19; given that COVID-19 is easily transmissible from one infected person ...
