More to Scheer’s resignation than Motz lets on

By Letter to the Editor on December 18th, 2019

Re: “Motz applauds Scheer’s ‘depth of character,'” Dec. 13 Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner MP Glen Motz believes that Andrew Scheer quit to spend more time with his young family and whom he applauds for making a very difficult decision. Those more astute observe the revelation that party donors were, at least in part, paying the Conservative leader’s ... Read More »

Where’s the concern about AISH payments?

By Letter to the Editor on December 16th, 2019

Hello, Albertans. There have been lots posted about deindexing AISH. How many people are aware of how much an increase at the cost of inflation would have cost Albertans? The math is this: 46,000 x $32 = less than $1.5 million a year and less than $7million over four years. Now Kenney’s so-called “war room” ... Read More »

Minor hockey needs to grow up

By Letter to the Editor on December 13th, 2019

I have had my two kids in Medicine Hat Minor Hockey Association (MHMHA) for the past five-plus years and have some suggestions. The association is about 1,000 kids and run by volunteers. It’s basically affordable and people are trying their best. But there are some big problems that everyone seems to talk about in rumours ... Read More »

Unions should take their arguments to the boards

By Letter to the Editor on December 13th, 2019

The government does not lay off teachers and nurses, the boards do. There has been much coverage in the news as of late on how the government is laying off teachers and nurses. As a UNIFOR shop steward, I understand that the public sector unions have an important role to play in protecting the jobs ... Read More »

Cherry a conservative voice for the right

By Letter to the Editor on December 11th, 2019

I was very disgusted when Don Cherry was let go by Hockey Night in Canada. He was one of very few broadcasters who reported everything without exaggerating or covering anything up. I always looked forward to hearing what he would bring forth every Saturday night. I seemed to learn a lot from this man over ... Read More »

Climate change ‘science’ is just politics

By Letter to the Editor on December 11th, 2019

The global warming agenda has, from its beginning, disguised itself as real science. This movement began as a toxic union of wealth redistribution ideology and global governance ambitions. However, selling this unwelcome message to the world was a difficult challenge. But at that time, new environmental alarms were gaining traction and the fear factor associated ... Read More »

AHS needs to review delivery model, revisit changes

By Letter to the Editor on December 11th, 2019

Dear Mr. Kenney, Alberta Health Services (AHS) is broken and has been for many years. Every elected government has tried and failed to make permanent and sustainable changes to it. I believe the “expert committee” was window dressing for what the Kenney UCP government intended to do anyway all along. AHS needs to review their ... Read More »

Money for nothing

By Letter to the Editor on December 11th, 2019

Two UCP party members were elected to represent the Medicine Hat area. Both were very outspoken about what they would do to represent this area if elected. Both were elected. Both have done little if not nothing. They have travelled and found places to live in Edmonton. Both bill meals and expenses to the taxpayers. ... Read More »

Thinking columnist ‘doth protest too much’

By Letter to the Editor on December 9th, 2019

Re: “Non-stop rhetoric from UCP,” Nov. 16 I would categorize Scott Schmidt’s column in the middle of November as a case of “love me or hate me, but spare me your indifference,” especially judging from Ticked Off & Tickled Pink comments and letters to the editor that followed, those in his defence and otherwise. It ... Read More »

Provincial tests are only useful as a political tool

By Letter to the Editor on December 9th, 2019

It is interesting that Bill 22 passed the Legislature so quickly even though, with the exception of the premier and the UCP, the Albertans it directly affects don’t want to have anything to do with it. I am referring to the people who are having their pensions taken over by the government. The UCP maintain ... Read More »
