LETTER: Alberta oil is the cheapest in the world, because it is the worst in the world

From your truncated and luke warm denunciation of Elizabeth May, I am surmising that the intellectual protection of $5 bbl oil is not worth the trouble.

Mr. Naylor, Former Green Party leader calls for oil industry to die

From your truncated and luke warm denunciation of Elizabeth May, I am surmising that the intellectual protection of $5 bbl oil is not worth the trouble. 

You are correct in this of course. Alberta oil is the cheapest in the world because it is the worst in the world.

Most major countries in the world will be off oil in 5 to 10 years, maybe less after the covid event.

Your new subdued approach will help pipe fitters, electricians, heavy equipment operators, plumbers – service workers of all varieties using their skills in an expanding power industry based on silicone and wind, which few jurisdictions in North America can replicate. Power sold in huge quantities to the North American west coast for as long as the sun shines. Economic security, and heroes again.

Surely it is time to ditch the texas morons and make alberta great again.

Thank you for writing and publishing the excellent article about Gerald Butts Twitter comment, and the hope that the truckers have given to Canadians.

LETTER: AHS undercover agents’ practises raise lots of question

“Seems strange to me that we do not know more about this secret branch of law enforcement….”

RE: AHS says deploying undercover agents ‘normal’ practice

Alberta Health Services Red Deer has been in correspondence with me on this issue.  They are not answering my specific questions around training, but they are suggesting that their actions are in alignment with the Alberta Health Act.

Seems strange to me that we do not know more about this secret branch of law enforcement, as they are able to operate within the province under their own set of rules that are private to them. 

Maybe this has always been a thing, but they seem to be able to operate outside of the rules that bylaw officers are to follow.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

**your signature**



The Western Standard will never accept government bailout money. By becoming a Western Standard member, you are supporting government bailout-free and proudly western media that is on your side. With your support, we can give Westerners a voice that doesn\'t need taxpayers money.
