Letter: After a decade of no increases, more money for AISH is welcomed

By Letter to the Editor on December 6th, 2022

Dear editor, I would like to thank the new premier of Alberta for increasing AISH. After 10 years since the last increase in AISH she has increased it $102 and indexed to inflation. Of course, that means that people may be able to keep up with rent increases every year from now on. It will ... Read More »

Letter: For the sake of the kids, act like adults

By Letter to the Editor on December 6th, 2022

Dear editor, An open letter to UCP MLAs: There was once an officer who was known throughout the military for his utter incompetence. Still, it was said that his men would follow him anywhere, but only out of curiosity. That is, they wanted to have a ringside seat when he made his next spectacular blunder. ... Read More »

Letter: Leaders need to keep Bible out of their rhetoric

By Letter to the Editor on November 30th, 2022

Dear Editor, Some politically far-right leaders misappropriate quotes from the Bible in order to make it sound like God wants Christians to be armed to the teeth with guns. They take peoples’ deeply held religious faith and weld it directly to a hardcore right-wing political agenda. They have the devout raising their hands and saying, ... Read More »

Letter: Think of those fighting in Ukraine as we are fortunate enough to celebrate the festive season

By Letter to the Editor on November 24th, 2022

Dear editor, The Christmas season will be here shortly, then the New Year. Many people in the West are looking forward to this festive season and to better times, even though inflation, RSV, influenza and COVID-19 are still here. But, this optimism is not for all. Ukraine and its citizens would prefer the same, but ... Read More »

Letter: Smith’s UCP must take action as illnesses rise

By Letter to the Editor on November 23rd, 2022

Dear editor, As Albertans hear more and more frequently about the combined wave of COVID, flu and RSV on our doorsteps, we hear silence from our provincial government… or worse. One of Premier Danielle Smith’s first actions in power was to ban school districts from protecting our children with masks. This was done without consultation ... Read More »

Letter: Does Smith have the support of Albertans

By Letter to the Editor on November 16th, 2022

Dear editor, Danielle Smith is now the authentic premier of our province having finally been elected. Strange that she chose Brooks-Medicine Hat as, I’ll wager, she has no intent on living here or even visiting here in the near future. But does this victory suggest the voting public has given her or her party a ... Read More »

Letter: It’s time we all settle down a bit

By Letter to the Editor on November 10th, 2022

Dear editor, People are angry but they are angry at the wrong things. The left is angry at the right and the right is angry at the left and that anger has metastasized into outright hate for those who think and vote differently than someone else. This hate has been growing for years and years ... Read More »

Letter: Medicine Hat News should be welcoming byelection-based letters to the editor

By Letter to the Editor on November 3rd, 2022

Dear editor, A typical forum used by individuals to express their views has been taken away in the Brooks-Medicine Hat byelection. The Medicine Hat News suddenly decided not to print any byelection-related letters because “it would be impossible to reflect a balanced version of overall submissions, and the News doesn’t want to give the impression ...
