Breast cancer tulip garden has become an eyesore

By Letter to the Editor on July 19th, 2018

What an eyesore! Where? The breast cancer floral ribbon directly north of the rose garden at Henderson Lake. In 1998 I offered a donation of 200 pink tulips imported from Holland to Avon Canada (one of the largest crusaders to breast cancer). This donation was only allocated to 10 cities throughout Canada. I suggested we ... Read More »

Please, Canada, don’t give up on your neighbour

By Letter to the Editor on July 18th, 2018

Please don’t give up on us. You’re the greatest neighbour a country could ever have. Please remember that Trump is only temporary, and with the support of great countries like yours, we’ll get through his shocking, daily, overt attempts to unbuild the U.S.A. I am but one of millions of Americans who did not vote ... Read More »

Where does blame fall?

By Letter to the Editor on July 17th, 2018

Over the past few months I have read with some humour how the two resident socialist naysayers and local MLAs writing comments to The Herald blame the previous governments for today’s economic problems.

By Letter to the Editor on July 15th, 2018

Rebuttal to Dale Brooks’ letter “Enough land claims, it’s time to move forward,” in the July 8 Herald. One hundred and forty years is simply a blemish in our 16,000 years of Blackfoot history. That is the amount of time our people have been found to reside in traditional lands. We have been here since ... Read More »

Too many Lethbridge drivers ignoring the traffic laws

By Letter to the Editor on July 14th, 2018
