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, ...

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 »

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 »

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 »

We need to start caring about each other

By Letter to the Editor on September 15th, 2021

Editor:  I have just read the vaccination figures for areas around Lethbridge – 38 per cent, 42 per cent, etc. and it breaks my heart. So many people are suffering and unable to get treatment because the unvaccinated are taking up the hospital beds; unvaccinated folks are costing the province millions of dollars in health ...

Anti-vaxxers disrespectful of our freedoms

By Letter to the Editor on September 11th, 2021

Editor: The conduct of the people who are protesting COVID vaccinations, is disgusting,to say the least. They are exhibiting not only a lack of civility but also a severe deficiency in brain power. Don’t they understand that in a civil society, no one has a right to absolute freedom? Our freedoms end when our actions ... Read More »

Why has western democracy failed so badly?

By Letter to the Editor on September 11th, 2021

Editor: I don’t like Communists nor Islamic fundamentalist rule in Afghanistan. But that’s not the point. I was shocked and surprised how fast the Afghan government collapsed even after 20 years of the involvement of the world’s wealthiest countries to support it. It cost billions of dollars and sacrifices of thousands of lives. It reminds ... Read More »

We have an opportunity to shape our communities

By Letter to the Editor on September 9th, 2021

Editor: Every year on Labour Day, Canada’s unions celebrate the contributions of workers across the country. In past years, the Lethbridge and District Labour Council hosted a community BBQ to mark the day. In light of COVID restrictions, this year we have chosen to contribute our labour and money to the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen, YWCA, ... Read More »
