Why ticket parents with so many other issues to deal with?

By Letter to the Editor on April 14th, 2018

Daily I drive my children to school, walk them to their class, and tell them that I love them. After six years of this practice, I was presented with a parking ticket, as were many other parents, by an officer who obstructed traffic by parking in the middle of the road to provide parents with ...

Don’t push seniors off of Fritz Sick floor

By Letter to the Editor on April 14th, 2018

Having lived in Lethbridge since 1997, I have attended dances twice a week and music jams once a week with other seniors at LSCO with 60-90 in attendance. At each occasion, a resin was applied to the floor without consultation with the seniors. You could not dance without the use of floor wax. Shortly, the ... Read More »

Society seems to no longer value sanctity of life

By Letter to the Editor on April 12th, 2018

I would like to express my thoughts regarding the removal of pro-life signs in Lethbridge. The Canadian government has chosen to sanction “assisted dying” for those with terminal illness, who are experiencing pain and suffering. And yet we hesitate to acknowledge that an unborn baby, helpless, defenceless and without a voice of his/her own, also ... Read More »

Article trivializes crime, mental-health issue

By Letter to the Editor on April 11th, 2018

I feel I must bring to this newspaper’s attention the errancy of the front-page article Wednesday, March 28. It appears to this reader to trivialize a crime involving either alcohol or opioids, both in conjunction with issues of mental health, and including weapons and violence against police officers and property. The article propelled around and ... Read More »

A new opportunity for using airport

By Letter to the Editor on April 10th, 2018

I must say now that I’m a County resident, kudos to Lethbridge County for dumping the white elephant of an airport to the city. I congratulate the city for acquiring this gem. Why? the city is always looking for ways to promote themselves as a tourist destination to create revenue and place the city on ... Read More »

Gun ownership more important than children’s lives?

By Letter to the Editor on April 10th, 2018

Having read your articles surrounding the debate over Bill-71, I wanted to respond and clarify some issues. I have no objection to those who own guns legitimately to hunt or to those who enjoy sport shooting at a gun club. Responsible people showing responsible gun ownership. When we are debating the latest school shooting, I ... Read More »

Closing 43 Street at 24 Avenue South is a big mistake

By Letter to the Editor on April 8th, 2018

I am astonished council voted to close of 43 Street South at 24 Avenue South. A committee struck by Mayor Tarleck in 2009 debated the location of a third bridge. It was divided into four groups, one of which ended in a deadlock, two of which favoured the Chinook crossing to meet Scenic Drive at ... Read More »

Local radio needs more variety in the playlist

By Letter to the Editor on April 8th, 2018

I cannot understand why local radio thinks their audience is all mindless goldfish, with no memory capabilities whatsoever. There is over 60 years of incredible music available for local radio to broadcast, but, no, not in Lethbridge. Most of the artists that are played on local radio have had a wide range of “hits,” but ... Read More »

Is Canada becoming a nation of weaklings?

By Letter to the Editor on April 7th, 2018

One key factor that a child growing up in Canada needed to possess in a long-gone time was to be able to chop down a tree, part and split it and stack at least one cord of wood before lunch. The other was to walk in two feet of waist-deep snow to school, uphill both ... Read More »

How about apology for Norman conquest?

By Letter to the Editor on April 4th, 2018

Roast to Prime Minister Trudeau for another apology to the indigenous people. The entire history of mankind is one of migration, even to places where there already were people before new ones arrived and either blended in or took over in violent ways. British Columbia was not even a member of the Dominion of Canada ... Read More »
