  • UCP must learn from civic elections

    Dave Mabell Lethbridge Herald dmabell@lethbridgeherald.com Alberta’s conservative politicians must learn from this week’s civic elections.

  • olden reward awaits the victors

    The T. Eaton Trophy, colloquially and accurately, in terms of colour at least, referred to as “The Golden Football” for generations was first awarded in 1956. Heck, it’s outlived the once iconic namesake department store chain that I’ll presume made the initial donation. The 2017 recipient will be finally determined Friday. Three teams are still ...

  • Playing hardball at NAFTA table

    U.S. demands increasingly strict As the Major League Baseball playoffs continue, the United States is playing a little hardball of its own during NAFTA negotiations with Canada and Mexico.

  • Catalonia: Puigdemont’s strategy

    Catalan nationalist leader Carles Puigdemont got most of what he wanted out of the chaotic pseudo-referendum on Oct. 1: 761 people injured by the Spanish police trying to block it.

  • Rebutting columnist’s view of the ‘right’

    The first rebuttal to Gwynne Dyer (Oct. 1) dismantles stereotypes. Germany’s AfD, known as “the professors’ party,” is Euro-skeptical. That makes it sensible, not fascist. AfD’s a populist alternative to the actual neo-Nazi NPD, which considers Rudolf Hess a martyr. Iron nationalism? Or conviction against Angela Merkl’s excessive government? Dyer’s “right” is ill-defined, but the ... Read More »

  • Should we demand more from business sector?

    Do Canadians demand enough from business? Or, do we give business free rein to abuse us? We commonly give endless support to business through incentives, subsidies, reduced utility rates in water, electricity, roads, sewage, tax deductions for advertising, and freedom to pollute air and water. Citizens pay full costs for their own use, plus business’ ... Read More »

  • Token gestures don’t eliminate daily racism

    I have a lot of respect for former mayor Bob Tarleck. Indeed, some of his initiatives brought about some positive relationship building between First Nations and the City of Lethbridge.
