LETTER: Our ambassador only concerned with Eastern Canada

“What the hell? Who’s side is this ambassador on?”

RE: POLL: Westerners on their own in Keystone battle

It’s time to let Keystone XL go. Ambassador says Kirsten Hillman says there’s no saving the project now — and the bilateral relationship has other problems.

What the hell? Who’s side is this ambassador on? 

She threw in the towel on Alberta real fast, but I suspect if that had been Quebec that got ran over by a political truck, it would be a different story in the news. I guess, that 2 billion dollar a day bilateral trade enjoyed by the USA & Canada only extends through the US/Ontario/Quebec borders? It’s the source of millions of jobs on both sides of the border says Hillman. Nope Ambassador Hillman not in Western Canada it isn’t. Thanks for the stab in the back.

Alberta deserves to have it’s own ambassador in Washington to protect our interests there. Trudeau and Hillman won’t protect Western interests if it will disrupt or interfere with Ontario or Quebec’s interests. This should concern Alberta’s staunch Federalist Premier Kenney in that Eastern Canada comes before Western Canada hands down..

    All Kenney is doing is huffing and puffing around like he always does. All talk and no action, does he actually think that the SoyBoy Lieberals or the new commander in waiting of the CPC, O’Toole will seriously do anything. If he does he’s a bigger fool than I thought he was, and , sadly, voted for this con artist.

      He openly stated he is a federalist . He made his choice ,now its Alberta,s turn to make a choice. Do you want this same kind of treatment from Ottawa forever as they have always done since the very early years or have you finally woke up and said thats enough. Every signal you get from Ottawa looks absolutely bad for westerners so we are left with no choice . Separation .

    Ambassador Kirsten Hillman is treating Western Canada like a colony. Shameful response to Western Canadians whom just lost their jobs. Shameful response to Albertans whom she is to support & represent. I really don’t think Hillman gives a shit though. The smell of the day for the Greener’s is climate change. The hypocrisy of Greener’s for all to see is how they continue to use hydrocarbons like nothing has changed and nothing will until the Greener’s come to terms that hydrocarbons finance the way to a greener economy, it’s a fact folks. Where is Canada’s golden cash cow located? Alberta & Sask.

      Join the Wildrose Party in Alberta, the Buffalo Party in Saskatchewan and the Wexitt Party in northern BC. This is just more proof that the West needs to leave this con job of a federation. If the good people in these provinces don’t secede, I predict that in 10 years these provinces and their major cities will resemble what is left of the once shining city of Detroit.

LETTER: People fooled to thinking masks help stop COVID spread

Numerous studies have been conducted which showed the wearing of masks provided either no discernible difference in the spread or may even result in worse outcomes.

RE: Alberta orders mandatory masks in schools for reopening

I am writing in regards to our current mask policy in Alberta. 

When the world first found out about the COVID-19 outbreak we were told by our so-called experts that it was NOT necessary for healthy individuals to be walking around with masks on.  Dr. Fauci in the US said: “Wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.”

But in their infinite wisdom, our leaders decided that making people “feel better” was more important than being honest.  The truth about masks is that they do NOT provide protection against COVID-19! 

Numerous studies have been conducted which showed the wearing of masks provided either no discernible difference in the spread or may even result in worse outcomes.  Yet in spite of the science, our leaders have perpetuated this falsehood. 

For months now citizens of Alberta have been forced to strap a lie across their face to make others FEEL better!  Many of us know this is nothing more than virtue signalling!  When will leaders or the media start reporting the truth about that fact?

Longing for the freedom to breathe freely again,

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.
