Proposed superlab cancelled, what the plan now?

By Letter to the Editor on June 26th, 2019

Here we go again like listening to Lawrence Welk on a 78rpm record. Premier Jason Kenney and the Tories have cancelled the proposed medical superlab in Edmonton. Do they have a plan for its replacement? Nada. The previous Tory government plan was to assign lab services to a private Australian company. If we remember a ... Read More »

Citizens deserve peace, quiet and safety

By Letter to the Editor on June 26th, 2019

Medicine Hat is rapidly becoming a third world country like those in Central America, where thieves and thugs ruin our streets. The brain-dead drug users, dealers and criminal thieves have more rights than we as taxpayers, who worked hard in order to have a comfortable retirement. Now we are being forced because of these problems ... Read More »

Ear plug stunt ‘childish’

By Letter to the Editor on June 26th, 2019

II see our politicians are at it again, acting like little children not getting their own way. Mr. Kenney showed his true colours early by leading his primary class in a protest against what? Something he doesn’t want to hear? And certainly he doesn’t want his sycophants to hear it either. He did his best ... Read More »

Re: “Just two cannabis-impaired charges laid thus far, June 22 The article states that in Medicine Hat, during the eight months since cannabis legalization, two people have been subject to criminal charges for cannabis-impaired driving.

Kenney, UCP should listen respectfully

By Letter to the Editor on June 25th, 2019

Re: “UCP literally plugs ears to bill debate,” June 21 Less than 12 hours after Premier Jason Kenney’s earplug stunt, veteran Canadian broadcaster Anna-Maria Tremonti presented her last radio program as host of “The Current.” AMT (as she is known) identified the most important thing she had learned from conducting more than 13 000 interviews. ...

Not all ducks survived, but credit to local motorist for efforts near college

By Letter to the Editor on June 21st, 2019

In recent travels I came across a parked vehicle on College Avenue along the southbound stretch between the college and the Cultural Centre. Several other cars had stopped in the adjacent southbound lane, and a single male figure could be seen walking in front of both vehicles, waving his arms about. Though he didn’t appear ...

UCP putting up an addictions smokescreen

By medicinehatnews on June 19th, 2019

Jason Luan, associate minister of mental health and addicitons, and the UCP clan are attempting to erect an addiction strategy smokescreen to appeal to the UCP electoral body’s traditional, conservative mindset.  Luan’s belief that increasing detox and treatment services is the “more meaningful path” to address problematic substance use discounts the fact that dead people ...

Council is ‘pillaging a park,’ ignoring concerns of residents

By medicinehatnews on June 19th, 2019

If you’ve driven along College Drive lately you will have noticed the park is for sale! The city will not use the word “park” in any of their land sale proposals, preferring “vacant lot” instead. Do they think the citizens are blind or brainless? Every member of the council received the originating park document where ... Read More »

Another study will mean more people will die before supervised consumption site is opened

By medicinehatnews on June 17th, 2019

It seems to me a question of the supervised consumption site comes down to who has “skin in the game.” That is, those who have lost loved ones to addiction, those who are in active addiction and those who live in the downtown core close to where the site location is.  There are those of ...
