City needs to shut the door to cash stores

By Letter to the Editor on September 21st, 2014

It surprises me how our city is growing. But we all want better businesses and family restaurants that we can take our children to other than the same old place, but it seems to be more cash store places popping up all over town than anything else. A restaurant goes out of business and it’s ... Read More »

Pool fiasco shows poor planning

By Letter to the Editor on September 18th, 2014

I feel that I must write again about Henderson pool, now that we know it will be two years before it will be completed. I also feel that the city didn’t have all their ducks in a row before somebody was given the green light to knock down the only southside pool. It has been ... Read More »

Where is all the research money going?

By Letter to the Editor on September 17th, 2014

I think people are great raising all this money for cancer research. Just one question. Who does the research or does anyone care? I have seen no significant improvement since Terry Fox died.

Old age is like being in a zoo

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2014

Old age in Canada is like being a zoo animal. People that think they are helping only make life worse. To move from one senior centre to another requires months of paperwork. It’s like crossing Middle East borders without a passport; one is no longer free to decide the outcome. Ron Mayer Medicine Hat... Read More »

Property rights are backbone of democracy

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2014

The ongoing battle of property rights is a Fabian Society ploy or conspiracy. The Fabian Society is an organization founded in England in 1884 to spread socialist principles gradually by peaceful means. Democracy is entrenched in the ownership of property. It is the very backbone of its existence. The 1960 Bill of Rights, a federal ... Read More »

Sad to see religious fanaticism still attracts followers

By Letter to the Editor on September 14th, 2014

The recent resurgence of passionate, often barbaric, dedication to a fanatical religion, such as ISIS, among the youths took me by complete surprise. Why do middle-class educated young Canadians frock to the cause of an extreme religious fanaticism? Today, I thought it was cool among the youths to be atheists and to predict a demise ...
