Dear Editor,

Honestly mistaken There is a saying that I like to use: When one who is honestly mistaken learns the truth, he or she either stops being mistaken or stops being honest. Remember that line in “A Few Good Men” when Jack Nicholson said, “You can’t handle the truth”? Well, a lot of people don’t want […]

The facts on the Omar Khadr payout

  By Laura Bohnert On July 7, the Canadian government released an apology to Omar Khadr—an apology that has been alleged to be accompanied by a $10.5 million compensation payout. It’s a decision that has renewed controversy in a longstanding divisive issue that weighs the legalities of war crimes against legal human rights. Now 30, […]

Dear Editor,

Why we should vote No Firstly, I want to say that the reason I am writing this is because there has been very little allowed to be said regarding any opposition the PC takeover of the Wild Rose party.  Therefore, this is just to balance the information/propaganda. Reason #1: When we formed the new right […]

Jabs—professional or childish?

  By Laura Bohnert   Politics have taken an interesting turn over the past few years. No one can deny that this is true of the past year in the US, but even in Canada, there seems to have been an interesting shift in the way political campaigns are conducted. Instead of political leaders focusing […]

It is what it is…

  By Marc Chayer In what must be the single most jaw-dropping move yet in a long line of stupid moves, our fearless leader, Prime Minister Zoolander hands out an apology and $10.5 million to a convicted terrorist. What makes it even better, he has the announcement made after he leaves four days early for […]

Dear Editor,

How much money is enough? What do the numbers 10.5 million (10,500,000) and 12.5 million (12,500,000) mean to you? If you put a “$” in front of them, they represent MORE MONEY THAN MOST PEOPLE WILL MAKE IN A LIFETIME. I capitalized that because it’s important that people realize what these numbers represent in relation […]

Child brides and slavery….in Canada

  By Laura Bohnert It’s no secret that forced marriages and selling child brides into slavery are horrible acts—we often hear the horror stories coming from overseas—but what many don’t realize, as they wrap up their Canada 150 celebrations, is that it’s happening right here in our own backyard, too. The fact that there are […]

It is what it is…

  By Marc Chayer   Anyone who reads this article from time to time will know that I like to occasionally delve into politics. However, with that being said, when I do delve into politics, it is usually to make fun, poke holes, or point out the absurdity that frequently comes with those in power […]

Dear Editor

  Election 2019 is just a little less than two years away. Do not family-heads of Alberta, especially the parents, grandparents, and parents-to-be have to start considering what political party they want to rule Alberta after the 2019 election? As a family head myself, I feel that the answer to that question should be a […]

It is what it is…

  By Marc Chayer In our day to day existence we often look to measure success. Some do it through academic achievements while others think it is financial, and some even cling to the concept of work/life balance. So, how should one measure success? It is as old a question as the meaning of life […]

Terror attacks on London: What we know so far

  By Laura Bohnert England has been a target for violence of late, with recent attacks at the London Bridge and Borough Market, the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, and in Westminster. A total of 33 people have been killed in the past three months as a result of terror attacks that have targeted specific […]

Dear Editor

Donald Trump First of all, let me say that if I were an American, given the candidates in their last presidential election, I would have voted for Trump. However, that is a statement of the quality of candidates more than an endorsement of Trump.  Also, I thought the establishment would have been able to control […]

So, this isn’t the end of the world, then?

  By Laura Bohnert Believe it or not, the world is safer than ever—even if it doesn’t feel like it right now. With today’s social media pumping out news headline after news headline—whether fake or real, clickbait or top news story—we are being continuously infiltrated by the bleakness that appears to be our global outlook. […]

Are the feds trying to take over Alberta?

  It seems to me that the federal PCs are trying to take over Alberta Conservatives. First we had Jim Prentice come in and try to save the PCs. I really thought that if anyone could do it, he could. Alas, he told Albertans to look in the mirror and said he would run $21 […]

Theresa May – a situation update

  By Laura Bohnert There’s nothing like the topic of terrorism to distort the polls—although Trump might be a close runner up. Both seem to be working to UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s advantage, though. Theresa May has been experiencing a trending drop in the polls of late, spurred on by the mass registration of […]
