By Letter to the Editor on September 18th, 2021

Editor: The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, 1982, Section 1 – The rights and freedoms in the Charter are not absolute. They can be limited to protect other rights or important values. For example, freedom of expression may be limited by laws against hate propaganda or child pornography because they prevent harm to the ... Read More »

COVID chart raises questions

By Letter to the Editor on September 18th, 2021

Editor: For the past six weeks your COVID-19 daily update has shown the number of cases in Lethbridge increase dramatically, but the chart has always shown that no one is in the hospital, or the ICU. On Monday night Sept. 13 I asked Mayor Spearman in a public Facebook message if this was true. “No.  ... Read More »

Critics ignoring what Trudeau has done in his time in office

By Letter to the Editor on September 17th, 2021

Editor: The leaders of all the political parties are bombarding us with much negative information about Trudeau. That is a normal political behaviour at the time of elections . According to them he has not done much for Canada during all the years he has been our PM. Let us use our own analytical mind ... Read More »

Blame for COVID crisis rests on the government

By Letter to the Editor on September 17th, 2021

Editor: After watching the train wreck in Alberta with the UCP government’s death squad group of Jason Kenney, Deena Hinshaw and Tyler Shandro and their handling of the COVID-19 crisis, I would like to give a huge shout out and thank you to all the doctors, nurses and support staff, for standing firm and doing ...

Mask and vaccination mandates needed here

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2021

Editor: I disagree with those protesting mandates are against freedom. As a senior with health issues, twice vaccinated, I can still get sick from the Corona infection. I want to go out shopping, travel and stay at hotels. If these places won’t mandate mask and vaccination I am not free to do this. And if ... Read More »

Albertans better off to trust Trudeau

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2021

Editor: It was former MLAs from the Lougheed era who taught me that you can’t trust a Reformer. They were furious with Ralph Klein for bringing Preston Manning and Stephen Harper’s Reform Party Policies to the table and deliberately destroying what they had worked so hard to create for Albertans. Looking after the wellbeing of ... Read More »

People can’t have it both ways

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2021

Editor: We stood outside cheering essential workers, now we protest them. You get bullied at wearing or not wearing a mask, or thinking science is incorrect in how to protect us. Anger is everywhere, all around us. As your COVID position pushes the world to become more divided and our politicians cannot find or put ... Read More »

Treaty rights are for all tribe members

By Letter to the Editor on September 16th, 2021

Editor: Over the past few weeks, we have been educating membership as per our Treaty Rights and Referendum process established by Chief and council. Our advocacy group has recognized some serious issues to the process and have witnessed leadership’s total disregard of listening to the voices of the people. We know that we are right, ...

Hinshaw should be running the COVID show

By Letter to the Editor on September 15th, 2021

Editor: Kenney was in hiding for three weeks because he could not face Albertans due to the surge of COVID-19 cases. He is not a leader for the taxpayers; instead, he caters to the rich and the famous. It seems he creates a lockdown every 2-4 months and now that we are in the fourth ... Read More »

New Lethbridge transit systems failing those residents who really need it

By Letter to the Editor on September 15th, 2021

Editor: As a fairly new arrival to the city of Lethbridge I have just recently learned about a discriminatory issue with the buses in Lethbridge. My family and I are fairly fortunate so we can afford some luxuries that some people cannot. So we are not totally dependent on using Lethbridge transit for our transportation, ... Read More »

Anti-vaxxers the reason for new measures

By Letter to the Editor on September 15th, 2021

Editor: I would like to expand on Dennis Bremner’s excellent letter pointing out that some people don’t trust the COVID-19 vaccination but are willing to take an unproven horse de-wormer. I just don’t get these people and how their brain works or more to the point, doesn’t work. Let me spin this in another direction. ... Read More »
