They’re gouging us at the pumps again

Dear Editor, First, let me explain how supply and demand works: If supply is up and demand doesn’t change, the price drops. If supply is down and demand doesn’t change, the price increases. Similarly, if demand is down and supply is unchanged, the price drops, and if demand is up and supply is unchanged the […]

Dear Editor,

    Just iterating… Too hot, too cold, global warming, coming ice age… facts or fakes? I encountered the word pollution first in the early 1 970s while helping to clean up the English Bay beach in Vancouver, BC of the first big oil spill. My job was to neutralize birds that were too far […]

Dear Editor,

    In my last letter to the editor I suggested that the NDP government of Alberta could continue to have the support of Alberta’s parents, grandparents, and parents-to-be if this government could find a way to become more financially responsible. To assist the NDP government to achieve that objective, I suggested that the segment […]

Let’s blame the NDP

  That’s the motto for the Conservatives in Alberta. Time and again we hear their would-be leaders as well as many of the rank and file blame the NDP for everything that is wrong in our province. So, let’s just look at a couple of these things. The Conservatives blame the NDP for all the […]

Your forest industry needs your help, Whitecourt!

Dear Editor,   The Alberta Government refuses to lift the moratorium on harvesting in the Little Smoky Range which has already resulted in a loss of harvesting jobs and will continue to threaten more jobs by limiting the volume and cost of fibre available to the forest industry in the area. In a recent response […]

Does wisdom come with age?

Dear Editor, The saying goes that wisdom does come with age or as someone once put it: “We get too soon old and too late smart.” I remember as a younger person, I was very unworldly and ignorant (uninformed) of far too many things. But, with age and experience, one can’t help but become more […]

Blackmore and Oler found guilty of polygamy

Dear Editor, In case you haven’t heard, Winston Blackmore and James Oler of Bountiful, BC have been found guilty of polygamy (multiple wives) in a court in BC. Blackmore and Oler are appealing, not the verdict, they admit to having multiple wives but whether it is illegal or not. Blackmore and Oler are taking the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Conservatives Unite?

  I laugh when I listen to Conservatives talk politics.  I can laugh because I, too, am a Conservative. In some things I could be considered pretty far right and in other quite centrist. Alberta’s two so-called “Conservative” parties have reached a tentative agreement to unite. Their leaders will now go to their members for […]

US attack on Syria In Retaliation to Syrian Use of Chemical Weapons

  I am skeptical.  Here’s why:  Remember the non-existent Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq that led to the war in Iraq?  And before that it was the non-existent attack by N. Viet Nam on a US war ship that led to the war in Viet Nam.  So, we have a history of the US […]
