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 »

Open debate in public space

By Letter to the Editor on March 31st, 2018

Over the last few weeks there have been concerns raised over our right to advertise in the public square. The mission of Lethbridge Pro-Life is to proclaim the inherent value of human life from conception until natural death. Our advertising has always reflected that message in a loving and positive way. The Charter 2(b) right ... Read More »

Where has freedom of belief, expression gone?

By Letter to the Editor on March 31st, 2018

This is in response to the letter titled “Why are anti-choice ads allowed on city’s public space?” printed in the March 23 Herald. The writer expresses anger that anti-choice ads are allowed in public space in Lethbridge. My question is, why is it right for pro-choice groups to use public forms of media to express ...

New firearms laws won’t deter crime

By Letter to the Editor on March 30th, 2018

Well, here we go again. The Liberal government is insinuating to the Canadian public a change in firearm regulations – $370 million initially, then $100 million per year to implement nothing new. Liberals are terrible with budget estimates. Their last fiasco (gun registry) was a taxpayers’ nightmare. This belated Liberal government’s effort at garnering votes ... Read More »

Listen to experts on drug addiction issue

By Letter to the Editor on March 30th, 2018

I read recently that Jason Kenney is against the idea of safe drug addiction sites. It sounds crazy to set up sites to feed poison to people. But Jason is probably like me, fortunate enough to never have had any drug addictions. We are looking from the other side of the fence. We need to ... Read More »

City council’s spending is out of control

By Letter to the Editor on March 30th, 2018

The mayor and council’s spending is out of control. The majority of the taxpayers have a hard time making ends meet due to high taxes. We live in southern Alberta and our taxes are higher than Medicine Hat and Red Deer, and 100 per cent higher than Calgary and Airdrie. I know citizens want fancy ... Read More »

Bear hunt is unscientific, unnecessary

By Letter to the Editor on March 29th, 2018

The Spring Black Bear Hunt starts April 1 and will inevitably orphan cubs. Alberta Environment and Parks failed to produce the bear rehabilitation protocol that they had committed to. Thus, cubs will be killed under the orders of the executive director of Fish and Wildlife Policy. This is unethical, unscientific, unnecessary and unacceptable. Why does ... Read More »

Evangelicals aren’t always conservatives

By Letter to the Editor on March 29th, 2018

On March 6, the CBC Radio Calgary breakfast show “Eye-Opener” broadcasted an interview with an evangelical Christian from Texas. Dr. Katharine Hayhoe is wife of a pastor of evangelical church and also director of the Climate Science Centre at Texas Tech University. She is committed to educate the public about the danger of climate change. ... Read More »

Don’t run cartoons which mock God

By Letter to the Editor on March 29th, 2018

When we write letters to the editor there are lines we may not pass, such as not to quote the Bible nor possibly insult people, nor to be racist or seemingly racist – even though the writer meant it for the well-being of those intended. However, it seems fine for the editors of The Herald ... Read More »

Political correctness taken too far

By Letter to the Editor on March 28th, 2018

So, our esteemed (or not) prime minister has now “defined” the ultimate in political correctness by having all government employees (it’ll be us next) “cease and desist” using the terms Mr., Mrs., Ms., father, mother etc., etc. in their everyday conversations with the public sector. This could just be the start of it! I wish ... Read More »

Message is like a wrong-way warning

By Letter to the Editor on March 28th, 2018

Mel Lefebvre’s letter (March 23 Lethbridge Herald) is full of fallacies. 1. Not all anti-abortion people are right wing. 2. The signs referred to are not inaccurate. It is proven fact that the unborn feel pain. 3. Abortion has been declared legal by government, but does that mean that it is also right to murder? ... Read More »
