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 »

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 »

By Letter to the Editor on April 23rd, 2017

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 »

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 »
