Cats being inhumanely killed in Magrath

By Letter to the Editor on April 24th, 2017

It may be hard to believe in this day and age there are still people who consider domesticated cats nothing but a nuisance. It is true when unsterilized and abandoned, a cat population can increase exponentially. But the solution is obvious. Spay, neuter, release. Quickly stable colonies diminish in number, reduce the rodent population and ... Read More »

It’s hard to recognize Canada anymore

By Letter to the Editor on April 23rd, 2017

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee, and we legalize drugs in order to make us feel better about ourselves, only to fall back to reality when the high wears off. Maybe we could raise the dose a bit; if in trouble, we can always make use of a safe place to use it, ... Read More »

Thanks to MP for stand against sex-selection abortion

By Letter to the Editor on April 23rd, 2017

I am pleased that our MP, Rachael Harder, recently took a stand against the reality of sex-selective abortion in Canada. In case anyone missed it, Miriam Monsef, the Minister for the Status of Women, refused to acknowledge or interact with the question of sex-selective abortion when Ms. Harder asked if it constituted gender-based violence. It ... Read More »

Is justice really being served?

By Letter to the Editor on April 22nd, 2017

I don’t have much hair left, but I thought I might pull the last ones out after reading the April 7 newspaper. So the killer Matthew de Grood is a model patient. Did ever anyone think of the parents who lost their children? No. I do agree with the Alberta Review Board to give Mr. ... Read More »

Easter photo questioned

By Letter to the Editor on April 22nd, 2017

I would like to comment on the picture you have chosen for your front page on Friday (April 14), which supposedly reminds everyone of the “true meaning of Easter.” What I was reminded of is what an impressionable, captive audience is found in school children, and how “youth is a frail thing, not unafraid, firstly ...

So much for being safer in Canada

By Letter to the Editor on April 22nd, 2017

After a long journey through the U.S. that began in December, we finally crossed the border back into Canada on Good Friday. We have stayed in many areas throughout the states that were poor and rundown, with homeless people of all persuasion very evident. As we were travelling with our bikes, we were concerned at ...

Disrespect shown for Castle backcountry is a reality

By Letter to the Editor on April 22nd, 2017

Irresponsible users in the backcountry is a reality! We have been campers for over 50 years to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our beautiful landscape in southern Alberta. We have seen a huge change in the past 10 to 15 years. We used to camp at Westcastle near the falls, Race Horse and Dutch ... Read More »

Are we heading in the wrong direction?

By Letter to the Editor on April 20th, 2017

“China, a land of famine” used to be a common characterization of the now prosperous country. Korea, too, used to conjure up an image of hunger and poverty. In fact, one of the biggest non-governmental international charities, World Vision, began to help Korea in the 1950s. Japan was not too much behind on the poverty ... Read More »

Airline passengers deserve to be treated better

By Letter to the Editor on April 20th, 2017

As a senior I am disgusted at the behaviour of United Airlines; to think that they would treat a paying passenger who also is a 69-year-old senior with such disregard is absolutely appalling. Security not only dragged this gentleman off the plane, they manhandled him so roughly that they broke his nose and his teeth. ... Read More »

City needs to look after infrastructure essentials first

By Letter to the Editor on April 19th, 2017

I see the city is in proposal of several more “white elephants” … that is, facilities which may be used by something less than 10 per cent of the population, this evidenced by the current one on 3 Avenue South. Does anyone within the city understand we have roads which are near not passable, unless ... Read More »

Science trumps fun with respect to OHV use

By Letter to the Editor on April 18th, 2017

Re: http://www.pinchercreekvoice.com/ 2017/04/cnp-quad-squad-responds-to-scientists.html Off-highway vehicles (OHVs) are undoubtedly fun. But OHVs are causing terrible erosion and water pollution problems in the mountains and foothills of Alberta. The work some members of the CNP (Crowsnest Pass Quad Squad) club have done to try and reduce their OHV impacts is appreciated. But it has not prevented many ... Read More »
