Blockades appear to be non-sensical

By Letter to the Editor on February 29th, 2020

There is much stress, angst and economic impact (loss of $150 million/day) over the blockades across the country in support of the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs. However, the more I learn the more nonsensical it appears. a) Hereditary chiefs. The number and legitimacy of the hereditary chiefs is unclear. There are assumed to be 13 positions ... Read More »

Not a time for relativistic pandering

By Letter to the Editor on February 29th, 2020

Re: “What comes next can’t be arrested away” Feb. 22 It’s disappointing that the writer quickly rising in province-wide notoriety for his tacit regurgitation of left-wing opinion won’t take a side in the illegal rail blockades. I guess arresting non-Indigenous anarchists seizing on the opportunity of gaining a little fame and notoriety by riding the ... Read More »

Left-leaning agendas worsening issues in education

By Letter to the Editor on February 29th, 2020

Once again teachers across Alberta and Saskatchewan are demanding that governments spend more to improve classroom conditions. The diversity within individual classrooms is staggering. Add to that the increased stresses of having teachers become the solution to every moral issue in society and you make teaching a nearly impossible task. Too much time is spent ... Read More »

More questions than answers in Buffalo Declaration

By Letter to the Editor on February 29th, 2020

The Buffalo Declaration raises more questions than can be answered in Canada’s current climate of extreme political correctness. First and foremost, why have only four of Alberta’s 33 federal Conservative MPs signed up for this dangerous and revolutionary document? My guess is that it is too politically incorrect for our weakling Conservative Party of Canada. ... Read More »

Holding the country for ransom

By Letter to the Editor on February 29th, 2020

At what point will folks who ought to know better, like for example our prime minister, learn again that appeasement only leads to “Hey…it works…let’s do it again…ask for even more” or another prime minister of now some years ago, a Mr. Chamberlain, waving something signed by you know who (or have you forgotten that ...

Something missing in MLA Report from Drew Barnes

By Letter to the Editor on February 28th, 2020

Drew Barnes’ MLA Report fails to mention that the UCP provincial corporate tax reduction program implemented last summer has not brought any new jobs to Alberta. A further corporate tax reduction is planned for 2020. The reduction of corporate tax income is not proving beneficial to Albertans, and is in fact increasing our tax burden ... Read More »

At least Klein sold oil and gas

By Letter to the Editor on February 28th, 2020

Wow, I thought Alison Redford was a cold-hearted harridan; she has nothing on Jason Kenney. Taking money from disadvantaged Albertan’s (CORE) and giving it to an inept, corpulent group of public relations cronies (war room) is heartless and unforgiving. This is the same man who saying he will proudly sell Alberta’s last barrel of oil ... Read More »

Plenty of lessons to be learned from speaking with elders

By Letter to the Editor on February 27th, 2020

To speak to the elderly is an opportunity, an honour and a joy. To God and these people, we owe almost everything. They remain the eyewitnesses to history. Without exception, all of the elders I have spoken with are or were proud, grateful Canadians. When I asked how crazy, evil governments took over their home ... Read More »

We should all wonder about the next election

By Letter to the Editor on February 26th, 2020

Re: “What will it take for Albertans to be concerned?,” Feb. 10 I read the letter to the editor and want say there are likely very many Albertans who feel very much like Lester Landry does. I agree with everything in his letter including when he wonders how anyone can “go to church on Sunday ... Read More »

Blockades a perfect distraction for Kenney, UCP

By Letter to the Editor on February 26th, 2020

Don’t follow the distraction by Energy Minister Sonya Savage that Alberta’s war room is under attack by organized activists and “green left.” This message was very intentional and is a smoke and mirrors puppet show they want people to follow. First, the war room has nothing to do with oil and gas, it is a ... Read More »
