LETTER: UCP losing the narrative

A reader says that the UCP is dropping the ball.

No person is perfect, in spite of statements to the contrary by a certain individual in the White House.
Our own political leader here in Alberta has never laid claim to perfection, for which he should be commended. However, his weak spot is now becoming increasingly evident to the general public.

Jason Kenney is not a leader. Factions within his own party are doing their own thing with Kenney desperately trying to create the impression that he is in charge.

The bungling of the Health file by Alberta Health Minister Shandro is a good case in point: This Minister has managed to alienate most of the people that work for him without reproach from Premier Kenney.

The government has also put its foot in its mouth on the question of public park space in the province under the “leadership” of Environment Minister Nixon.

And opening up coal mining in the sensitive headwaters areas of our rivers in the Rocky Mountains has added insult to injury.

Opposition Leader Rachel Notley is waiting on the sidelines – for now…

LETTER: Thanks for keeping the COVID debate civil

There is a great deal more weight and effectiveness from being polite without compromising the message.

RE: Danielle Smith UNCENSORED speaks to three deplatformed doctors

Thank you for keeping this debate civil.  

I had a subscription to the Western Standard years ago, and had to let it go because while I deeply believed in and supported the information that was presented, it was done with such a rude and caustic rhetoric.  

There is a great deal more weight and effectiveness from being polite without compromising the message.  I respect that.  Danielle Smith and Dr. Modry are great examples of excellent presenting.  

Thank you for that

LETTER: Liberal Enbridge fight another stab in the heart for Albertans

Now, why would this particular issue be more relevant than the Keystone issue?

RE: Analyst says Enbridge Line 5 fight shows Trudeau, Biden playing both sides on energy issues

Thanks for all your timely articles.

With all the issues that Alberta is facing regarding pipelines, I read recently that our Federal Natural Resources Minister, Seamus O’Regan, is now vowing to defend the Enbridge Line 5 issue with the state of Michigan. 

Now, why would this particular issue be more relevant than the Keystone issue?  Perhaps because Line 5 not only supplies oil to the States but also to refineries in Sarnia. 

Seems to me to be another twist of the knife to Albertans.

LETTER: Kenney should be a limbo dancer because of his COVID response

Kenney never discloses the “science” he claims to follow, something he steadfastly refuses to do, likely because he hasn’t any.

RE: Kenney finally responds to top doc’s letter blasting his pandemic plans

Jasson Kenney’s response to Dr. Dennis Modry is typical political bafflegab. 

Kenney never discloses the “science” he claims to follow, something he steadfastly refuses to do, likely because he hasn’t any.  There is no science to support lockdowns and quarantining of healthy people because it’s never been done – so there can’t be any science. 

The data since these measures have been implemented, as reported by Stanford scientists in peer-reviewed literature, says the measures don’t stop any spread and may actually make it worse. 

Whatever Kenney is following, it’s not science, likely just the herd, as he’s just doing what everybody else is doing and calling that “leadership.” 

He should be a limbo dancer – no matter how low the hurdle, he can slide under it.
