Time to do our part to stop another genocide

By Letter to the Editor on July 25th, 2018

Last week people commemorated the genocide of Srebrenica with events held in Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Windsor and other cities. Yet, as we commemorate one genocide, there is another one that unfolds before our very eyes today in Myanmar, the Srebrenica of today. Just like the Serbian troops massacred thousands of people in Bosnia, Myanmar’s military ... Read More »

Kenney doing whatever it takes to win

By Letter to the Editor on July 25th, 2018

Re: “Where does Jason Kenney stand?”, July 23 To answer John Stanley’s question, Jason Kenney stands on the side of winning the next Alberta provincial election. That’s it and that’s all.

Major screwup on Southlands Drive

By Letter to the Editor on July 23rd, 2018

It is amazing how council members lose all sense of responsibility, to the city, as soon as they hold a position. The person or people within the planning and development or zoning offices have blown it once again. Take a drive down Southlands Drive, just south of the Walmart, and you will see the major ...

Supervised consumption site will be a positive

By Letter to the Editor on July 23rd, 2018

A supervised consumption site in Medicine Hat is an example of the Harm Reduction Strategy that Alberta Health Services uses when dealing with drug addiction. Everyone agrees that we have a drug problem in Medicine Hat and harm reduction is the best way to deal with it. We have the Medicine Hat Recovery Centre and ... Read More »

Where does JasonKenney stand?

By Letter to the Editor on July 23rd, 2018

The Medicine Hat News needs to take a much bigger interest in the Todd Beasley case than it appears to want to. That is because it is a ticking time bomb that will not only test the editorial abilities of the News, but also the real truth behind the United Conservative Party, and more importantly ...

Online poll ‘disparaging’

By Letter to the Editor on July 21st, 2018

A recent online poll by the Medicine Hat News was quite disparaging toward used car Dealers in the city. My family and I have had a number of dealings with a locally owned and operated used car dealership on South Railway Street over the last 20 years or so. I have always found them to ... Read More »

Who dropped the ball in the Suffield block?

By Letter to the Editor on July 20th, 2018

In the early 1990s concern over the changing ecosystems in the Suffield block culminated in removal of 1,200 feral horses who up to this point lived happily not bothering too many folks, except some genius bureaucrats who felt it necessary to have them removed as they were the cause of that eco-destruction. No one at ... Read More »

They change after election

By Letter to the Editor on July 20th, 2018

A puzzling development in a politician’s brain takes place once he is elected, especially in the ones who are in opposition. Their brains turn into mash. One of our MLAs is talking about trimming the fat as in his MLA Report in the Medicine Hat News on June 15. As a lifelong free enterpriser, I’m ... Read More »

Beasley’s remarks called ‘highly offensive’

By Letter to the Editor on July 18th, 2018

The discriminatory and highly offensive remarks made by Mr. Beasley must run contrary to his party’s principles. He was a candidate for the “United” Conservative Party. United for who? Do Muslims not play a part in bettering this nation? I wonder if Todd Beasley has ever bothered to consult any credible Islamic literature or is ... Read More »
