Alberta condo owners have been silenced

By Letter to the Editor on May 2nd, 2017

Our government, with no media exposure, recently made condo legislative updates that could devastate our condo owner property values, health and wellness, and financial stability. Their update only makes a vague reference to condo board governance, the main thrust that needs to be addressed to lessen the imbalance of power, and related abuses, that often ... Read More »

Letter writer should respect beliefs of others

By Letter to the Editor on April 30th, 2017

I would like to express my feelings regarding the letter to the editor written by Patricia Pargeter in the April 22 paper titled “Easter photo questioned.” I respect your beliefs but I would ask you to have some respect for the beliefs of others. To openly disrespect the faith practices of others is an expression ... Read More »

How about crosswalks for everyone else?

By Letter to the Editor on April 30th, 2017

In (Tuesday’s) newspaper it said that city council had delayed their decision on the rainbow and transgender crosswalks. That’s good because then in the meantime they will have time to consider adding crosswalks with wooden shoes for the many Dutch people in Lethbridge and area, crosswalks with shamrocks for the Irish, crosswalks with kimonos for ...

Writer’s claim a case of revisionist history

By Letter to the Editor on April 30th, 2017

I would like to comment on the letter to the editor that questioned the Easter photo that appeared on the front page of the Lethbridge Herald, April 14, which reminded everyone of the true meaning of Easter. To suggest that the picture was inappropriate for school children to see because of their impressionable age is ... Read More »

Commitment to scientific method must be maintained

By Letter to the Editor on April 29th, 2017

On April 22, Marches for Science were held in 600 cities around the world. These were intended to alert the public to the determined efforts of some to persuade us to disregard clear scientific evidence about environmental threats. Donald Trump is playing a central role in the attack on science. His promise that coal will ... Read More »

Writer’s letter was insensitive to faith views of others

By Letter to the Editor on April 29th, 2017

Ms. Pargeter’s letter of Saturday, April 22, citing the front page Herald photograph of Friday the 14th, speaks for itself. Ms. Pargeter, I don’t present myself as an expert on religion, but on this issue I take exception with you. Your ill-considered inferences and one glaring factual error effectively denigrate the religious belief of others, ... Read More »

U.S. must offer Putin a worthwhile alternative

By Letter to the Editor on April 27th, 2017

Russia is the largest country in the world – twice the size of mainland U.S.A. Internet sources list 55 harbours. Those on the Arctic and Pacific oceans (north and east coasts) are frozen in for long periods of the year. Even those in the Baltic Sea (west coast) and Black Sea (south coast) have problems ...

Legalizing marijuana seems senseless

By Letter to the Editor on April 27th, 2017

Please tell us, Mr. Trudeau, why have you evoked the wrath of narcotics on the Canadian public! It seems senseless, with the daily reports of the increasing deaths from opioids like fentanyl. Police seizures of fentanyl in Calgary alone were up 675 per cent over the last five-year average, as ably reported by Chief Robert ... Read More »

Crosswalks shouldn’t be used as promotional mediums

By Letter to the Editor on April 26th, 2017

Marked crosswalks are a transportation and safety measure and are standardized so drivers and pedestrians can recognize them. Changing a crosswalk design in any way – such as the recent request by LGBTQ lobbyists to colourize some as a promotion – becomes a safety issue. Would this contravene the Traffic Safety Act? Could the groups ... Read More »

Canada needs to stand up to the U.S.

By Lethbridge Herald on April 25th, 2017

Canadians need to support our prime minister and cabinet, to let them know we are not afraid of the monster from the south. Yes, we are witnessing the usual American “blame it on anyone else” attitude from Trump. Canada is not the problem in trade with the U.S. They have always had the point of ... Read More »
