Conservative candidates announced they were still on Harper’s agenda, but kinder, gentler. It’s not about what Canadians want – all that messy expensive democratic stuff like health care, social programs and the environment. It is ... Read More »

  • Rainbow crosswalk issue is about human rights

    This is Pride Week in Lethbridge. The vandalism of the rainbow crosswalks speaks volumes about the perpetrators. It speaks of their ignorance as well as their bigotry.
