LETTER: No consequences for Renaud’s “worse than Iran” tweet

A reader says it is hypocritical that people lose their jobs for “liking” Trump tweets, but that NDP MLAs can “like” outrageous statements without consequence.

RE: Alberta NDP MLA likes tweet that called UCP government ‘worse than Iran’

Just a comment on this story, unlike for example Micheal Korenberg the chair of UBC’s board of governors who was forced to resign for liking some Trump tweets, Ms. Renaud will not face any consequences, continue to collect her one percenter salary, and contribute nothing.

The woksters are running the show like the medieval Catholic church did. They can say and do anything they like and anyone out of step is branded a heretic. Only difference is they can’t actually rack or burn them at the stake, just ruin their careers, assassinate their characters, and essentially turn them into lepers. A truly sad time for democracy.

I would also advocate for Ms. Renaud and fellow thinkers to move to human rights stalwart countries like Iran, China, Saudi Arabia, or any number of African countries for examples for a taste of reality.

LETTER: Trudeau gun grab just an election ploy

Trudeau’s gun control legislation has nothing to do with public safety, and everything to do with elections

RE: Cities able to ban handguns under Liberal gun grab program

Trudeau’s gun control legislation has nothing to do with public safety, and everything to do with elections.

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.

RE: Edmonton Elk CFL team – one of the possible new names for the franchise

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.

RE: Rick Strankman – Turn off The taps


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.
