LETTER: COVID turning authorities into bullies

RE: The Pipeline: Ottawa is detaining citizenns and the MSM is ignoring it.

Thanks for the podcast about detentions and their lack of coverage by media. I think it was very balanced and well done. 

However, I have somewhat reluctantly come to believe that most police officers, bylaw people, and health officials absolutely love using these crises as an excuse to finally flex their muscles of authority, without encountering much notice, let alone disapproval.

For example, videos of officers yelling at and assaulting a guy who was skating in Calgary didn’t elicit much sympathy for the skater in my coffee room. 

Strange times, but bullies and thugs in official capacities are not letting this crisis go to waste.

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!
