Making excuses for poor performance

By Lethbridge Herald on August 2nd, 2018

I am still amazed how socialists continue to make excuses for the performance of the NDP government. Some commentators have made false assumptions; I am not a signed-up conservative, I hold no membership in any party, my only memberships being in the UAW and more recently the UFCW. I am foremost an Albertan who is ... Read More »

Assimilation or multi-culturalism?

By Lethbridge Herald on August 2nd, 2018

I have been thinking about the new influx of immigrants into Canada. A lot of folk tell me it is the duty of immigrants to become assimilated into the larger culture. This is apparently what they call multiculturalism. But, did everyone who came here, come here to assimilate? In 2012, the Universities of Delaware and ... Read More »

We must overcome crisis of differing opinions

By Lethbridge Herald on July 29th, 2018

I am wondering how impartial The Herald can actually be in reporting on the opioid crisis? At the bottom of the front page of the Special Report section, the writers attempt to introduce the series of articles as being an objective presentation, without bias, of the crisis. I appreciate that they thought that, but their ... Read More »

Proposed regulations will hurt condo owners

By Lethbridge Herald on July 29th, 2018

Why is it nothing has been in the media about Service Alberta’s release of their proposed condo governance “regulations” and the associated condo survey due July 31? Is it because they don’t want one in four Alberta homeowners realizing the many shortcomings and loopholes of their current and proposed condo legislation they want proclaimed into ... Read More »

Intentional destruction of the United States?

By Lethbridge Herald on July 28th, 2018

The only way I can make any sense of Donald Trump and the American government is to assume that what is happening is by design. I don’t think anyone can be that stupid and still be able to tie his own shoes. Having said that, I asked myself what would be the simplest explanation for ... Read More »

Seniors minister a welcome addition

By Lethbridge Herald on July 28th, 2018

I would like to thank The Herald for the editorial in the July 19 Herald, “Cabinet adds voice for seniors.” On behalf of the Lethbridge Federal Liberal EDA, I congratulate your editors for writing a very positive and informative editorial. I was on the Seniors Policy Committee that researched and wrote the background paper supporting ... Read More »

Previous Conservative governments caused Alberta’s woes

By Lethbridge Herald on July 28th, 2018

Rebuttal to Tom Burns’ letter, “Where does the blame belong?”, Lethbridge Herald, July 17. Tom should stop blaming Rachel Notley’s New Democrats (NDP) for Alberta’s problems. The truth is, Alberta was in trouble long before the NDP formed the government. Perhaps Tom has forgotten that it was the Conservatives, not the NDP, that left Alberta ... Read More »

Nobody is a write-off even in seemingly hopeless situations

By Lethbridge Herald on July 5th, 2018

Re: “Huge cost to ending needle program” (June 14 Lethbridge Herald) The head of ARCHES paints a bleak picture. The tone of the article certainly bears that out. ARCHES says that unless we continue to support the drug-use habits in a safe environment “we’d start stepping over dead bodies in the streets.” Regardless, they say ... Read More »

Keeping secrets from parents tramples on law

By Lethbridge Herald on July 5th, 2018

On the radio last month I heard a LGBTory-ite speaking about Bill 24 in connection with the founding United Conservative Party AGM. He said Bill 24 is actually redundant. There is already a bill that says when explicitly religious or sexual material is presented at school, the parents need to be notified. It’s great he ... Read More »

What happened to experiencing consequences of your actions?

By Lethbridge Herald on July 4th, 2018

The dictionary definition of consequence is “something produced by a cause or necessarily following from a set of conditions” and “a result of a particular action or situation, often one that is bad or not convenient.” When growing up I was taught you were responsible for the consequences of your actions. Speeding could result in ... Read More »

Fiscal record of conservatives not very good

By Lethbridge Herald on July 4th, 2018

I find George Rigoux’s June 20 letter amusing. He judges the NDP are not prudent fiscal managers; this coming from a conservative candidate, a party that blew the potential trillion-dollar Heritage Trust Fund, sending out $400 cheques to all Albertans. There are many ways to compare conservative fiscal policy to other parties; in their misunderstanding ... Read More »
