Propaganda by our provincial government

By Letter to the Editor on November 9th, 2019

Our great provincial leader has set up a “war room” with taxpayers’ money to combat negative voices that don’t support the oil and gas industry. In reality this is propaganda by our provincial government. It’s a sad day when big business can’t defend itself. We sheep know when the wool is being pulled over our ... Read More »

By Letter to the Editor on November 8th, 2019

Re: “Watch your climate language,” Nov. 6 The Magdalene Islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence have received some recent press coverage in other media. It seems scientists are interested because the Gulf of St. Lawrence is remarkable due to the significant warming that is happening there. It seems this temperature increase has caused the ...

Crony Capitalism is winning

By Letter to the Editor on November 8th, 2019

Crony Capitalism refers to a capitalist society that is based on the close relationships between business people and the state. Instead of success being determined by a free market and the rule of law, the success of a business is dependent on the favouritism that is shown to it by the government in the form ... Read More »

What are you willing to give up?

By Letter to the Editor on November 7th, 2019

The climate change agenda this is being whipped up around the world is failing to ask its followers one thing: What are you willing to give up to save your beloved planet? Children are asked to carry signs, yell slogans and spout platitudes but I see politicians like Barack Obama buying oceanfront property in Martha’s ... Read More »

CPC’s social conservative culture led to Scheer’s loss

By Letter to the Editor on November 6th, 2019

Peter MacKay blaming Andrew Scheer for the Conservative Party’s loss at the polls during the October election is grossly misplaced. The root cause is our so-called Constitution, that in reality is nothing but an Act of Parliament, and the preamble to the Charter section that in part states Canada is founded upon principles that recognize ...

Watch your climate language

By Letter to the Editor on November 6th, 2019

Careless talk about climate change is treacherous. There is a gigantic difference between natural climate change and human-caused climate change. As Albertans, we see proof all around us that climate naturally changes (effects of ice sheets and fossils from tropical forests). The millions of years of cyclic natural climate change have been well documented through ... Read More »

Budget explanations disappoint

By Letter to the Editor on November 2nd, 2019

I looked forward to the end of the provincial election campaign. Perhaps, I hoped, the partisan hype, bluster, and political spin would die down a bit. Maybe with a budget and detailed legislative proposals we would enjoy more rational, respectful and fact-based discussion. Naive, of course. Recent statements by representatives of our new UCP government ... Read More »

PM should be talking to Kenney

By Letter to the Editor on November 1st, 2019

To be a significant Canadian, you need to live in Ontario and, yes, Quebec. Heaven help us, don’t forget what Quebec does for Canada’s image and status! What would Canada do without it? Well, ransom wouldn’t be freely paid from federal coffers. We should be grateful here in Alberta. “To give is better than to ... Read More »
