Education and religion should be separated

By Letter to the Editor on September 19th, 2018

Re: “Catholic board chair says bishop should be consulted ahead of any vaccination decisions,” Sept. 12 Who agrees with Peter Grad that the Catholic school board consult with their bishop before implementing any changes to its vaccination program, a program change advised by the medical experts of this province? I mean does the bishop have ... Read More »

Muslims are a favourite target

By Letter to the Editor on September 17th, 2018

Re: “Christians being persecuted into extinction” Sept. 13. Leslie Maltin’s response to my guest column of Sept. 8, though well written and thoughtful, seems like a bull’s reaction to the matador’s red cape. He reacts to one sentence from my article: “The favourite target these days seems to be immigrants from Muslim countries.” Apparently the ... Read More »

What message are we sending our youth?

By Letter to the Editor on September 17th, 2018

I am writing to convey my concerns about the proposed supervised consumption site for Medicine Hat. My understanding of what I will refer to as ‘the injection site’ is that it is coming to Medicine Hat as a health initiative mandated by the federal and provincial governments. I am concerned specifically about how this site ... Read More »

Christians being persecuted into extinction

By Letter to the Editor on September 13th, 2018

Re: “Why do social media users choose to intentionally add to someone’s pain?,” Sept. 8 I want to direct a few facts to the statement made by Mr. Mueller: The favourite target these days seems to be immigrants from Muslim countries. Could it be possible that the verses of Islam from the Qur’an to hate ... Read More »

Mayor Clugston should lead council to informed SCS outcome

By Letter to the Editor on September 10th, 2018

Medicine Hat’s city council is facing a delicate task choosing a location for the supervised consumption site and council members are most likely putting in extra hours as a result. It would be my guess more time is being spent fielding calls from the NIMBY (not in my back yard) slice of our community than ... Read More »

Bashing of the carbon tax by politicians being done as a means to buy votes

By Letter to the Editor on September 10th, 2018

Re: “If Tories want to lead on climate change they must embrace a price on carbon,” Aug. 27 I’m betting these Reformers, pretending to be conservatives, have no intention of doing anything about climate change, as Peter Lougheed found out. For years Lougheed urged the Klein and Stelmach governments to slow down the growth of ... Read More »

Photographer looking for subject of ’81 picture

By Letter to the Editor on September 7th, 2018

In 1981 I took a photo with Boyd Stevens in it with his vintage gas pump. I am sorry to hear that his place burned down in 2016. Is it possible to find out where he is now? I would like to give him or his family a print. The print can be seen at ... Read More »

What is really best for addicts?

By Letter to the Editor on September 6th, 2018

Re: “Injection stes column offers ‘ignorant views on drug debate,” Aug. 13 I was greatly amused by the so-called addictions counsellor from Kelowna spouting off about how ignorant the educated can be. Why? Because an addictions counsellor would know the truth and understand that addiction kills. What is addiction? It is the violent killing of ... Read More »

Politics are at play

By Letter to the Editor on September 5th, 2018

Re: “B.C. needs your sympathy,” Aug 22. Yes, Mr. MacLaren, I can imagine the uproar from B.C. if they were dealing with Alberta smoke. Protesters of all description would no doubt be on the move, financed by who and how we know not. Our lovely, unbiased media, especially CBC would certainly drone on. Unfortunately the ...

Notley, Trudeau throttling our energy sector

By Letter to the Editor on September 5th, 2018

Tax increase, suffocating regulations and veto powers granted by courts to aboriginal and environmental groups make it extremely difficult for Alberta to return to a competitive business environment. Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau have throttled the energy sector, the engine of the Canadian economy by regulating it to death. The latest example is the Trans ... Read More »
