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 »

Amazed Albertans are letting the UCP get away with this

By Letter to the Editor on December 6th, 2019

Was anyone in Alberta prepared for what Jason Kenney and his government unleashed on our province since the provincial election this spring? I wonder if those who voted for the UCP understood they were voting for the changes that are being implemented. Legislation that protected the rights of workers disappearing, collective agreement obligations being dismissed ... Read More »

How did Cherry last for so long?

By Letter to the Editor on December 4th, 2019

The “firing” of Don Cherry and the way the media treated the event as if it was an Earth-shaking, not-to-be- ignored, very important, major sports-related catastrophe, somehow equal to another ice age on the way, the end of hockey reporting and analysis, was a totally exaggerated hullabaloo. All I can say it’s a wonder it ... Read More »

Support for freedom of speech should be uniform across the board

By Letter to the Editor on December 4th, 2019

More and more we hear of speakers being shut down, cancelled and generally intimidated by small groups of protesters. We also hear of companies cancelling events, advertising programs and other promotions because of a small group of protesters. These are usually radicals who believe that the content of the events and programs are somehow racist, ... Read More »

Questioning scientist ‘Alliance’ legitimacy

By Letter to the Editor on November 23rd, 2019

Re: “Why do some people refuse to read?,” Nov. 9 My children have always warned me about expressing my opinion in the op-ed column (opinion section) of the newspaper. They say I am opening myself up to trolls, haters and cancel culture which after several years has finally happened. On Nov. 9 I was the ... Read More »

Tough words for firing of election commissioner

By Letter to the Editor on November 23rd, 2019

They’ve re-papered the parlour and sobered up the piano player and Kenney’s House of Negotiable Affection is back in business but there’s still that little matter of a couple of outstanding questions as to the legality of his title to the property itself. Hard words like “fraud” and “false pretenses” are being bandied around and ... Read More »
