The word on the street is that the mayor of Calgary is going to institute a face-mask law for Calgarians in the next two weeks, based on the fact that not enough of them are complying to face mask recommendations.
On July 8th, Nenshi told CTV News, “Our level of mask wearing in Calgary, in stores and in public transit in particular, is way too low, and I’ve been pushing saying, ‘we gotta do it’ and people aren’t doing it.” Nenshi’s reason for implementing a face mask mandate is not because the death toll in Calgary is thru the roof; he has not even quoted scientific, medical data indicating if masks can contain the spread of a virus. Instead, he states that there are too few people wearing them, therefore we must force them to. Where’s the rationale in that? And why wait for two weeks before instating this mandate?
If Nenshi and his gang believe that masks save lives, why wait? Why let more Calagarians die in the interim? To me, his warning that he will issue face masks if Calgarians don’t cooperate sounds more like a threat from an autocratic, “too-big-for-his-britches” politician than a plea from a good-hearted, reasonable, genuinely concerned leader.

It gets him a lot of city votes
He will never take any firearms off the streets, because it would violate the ‘holy rights’ of our so-called indigenous people to continue to trade in all kinds of illegal products and substances, including guns and ammo.
Enforcing any and all of his gun laws would take firearms away from duck hunters and target shooters, while leaving armed criminal gangs free to fight their wars and trade their drugs in our city streets.
LETTER: Name the Edmonton CFL team The Pissants
“As I said to a Aboriginal friend, the expression of monikers was a sign of respect.”
As I said to a Aboriginal friend, the expression of monikers was a sign of respect.
IE: George Armstrong was called “Chief” as captain of the Leafs. It was a sign of respect, to be worn with pride. And the last time they won Stanley Cup.
Perhaps the (name should be The) Edmonton Pissants.

LETTER: Hey Alberta – quit your whining!
Alberta could lead the way, rather than whining and crying about how tough they have it.
The rest of Canada does not owe Alberta anything.
It’s the world’s view oil is on its way out, not the rest of Canada.
Alberta does not just want North America to be self-sufficient – they want to be the “haves” again. In other words, extract and ship (overseas) as much oil as possible.
It’s time to transition to other forms of energy. Alberta could lead the way, rather than whining and crying about how tough they have it.
