RE: Kenney wants Keystone XL pipeline cash back from US

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is proving how unreliable Canadians can be in front of their largest trading partner and ally.

His wish to sue the Biden administration in Washington because they pulled out of the Keystone XL pipeline is childish and a move worthy of the likes of former President Donald Trump. One has to admire a President ready to fulfill campaign promises as soon as he takes office and he will prove to Washington’s enemies that he is a man to fear.

It’s time for Alberta to grow up and stop dictating energy and environmental policy in this country.

LETTER: Trudeau gun grab just a way to get urban votes

Enforcing any and all of his gun laws would take firearms away from duck hunters and target shooters

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: Pastor Coates denied bail


Your totalitarian government rule is an egregious affront to God Almighty, Whose name is invoked as the ruling authority in Alberta’s Bill of Rights.

God gives each person rights, not you, or any other government official. Remember, you are a servant of the people, not a supreme ruler.


You have oppressed and trampled on the rights and freedoms of the people of Alberta long enough – Free James Coates!
