LETTER: Slobodian has long history of uncovering the truth

Practically no one is reporting the truth anymore, but the Standard.

RE: SLOBODIAN: Beware the MSM Lies on Israeli-Palestine conflict

Thank you, Western Standard, for this timely article.

Practically no one is reporting the truth anymore, but the Standard. It is refreshing to read columns that push back on government-funded media outlets, especially the CBC. I remember Linda Slobodian from her Edmonton Sun days. She always uncovered the truth and made people think outside the box…..hmmm, with Slobodian, there is no box!! 

Well done.

    Canada’s Main Stream Media & Federal, Provincial & Municipal politicians are quite harsh on calling out white supremist groups & COVID-19 protestors & very timid with culturally sensitive groups who take offence to the slightest slight. I call it fear of reprisal & the Main Stream Media & political class knows it.

    Coun. Carra Ward 9 is a perfect example of what I just said above. Politicians bending over backwards, with statements of support & then of arrest & charge, in the same breath like . Are divisive! Should politicians be charged & arrested for inciting anger & hate towards different groups while supporting other groups, in the same breath ??

    Canada is a multicultural country & it always has been. Cultures can & are working together peacefully & share each others cultures. We don’t need the political class here in Alberta to stir the pot.

LETTER: Alberta should be off Equalization hook

Why would foreign nations be eligible for gratis Canadian money?

RE: Alberta Equalization referendum a step closer to reality

Alberta should be off the hook for Equalization support to the new Nation of Quebec.

Why would foreign nations be eligible for gratis Canadian money? Unless, of course, Trudeau decides their girls need education.

Then the payments could be construed as being for that. The Quebec template is open for us too. Just hold a couple of referendums on separation and no matter the outcome, eventually, we’ll get our way.

LETTER: Minimum wage discussions are often multi-faceted

I would love to see the take-home pay issue receive far more media attention than it does, because it’s our take-home pay that pays the bills, not what we earn.

RE: A $15 hourly minimum wage actually costs student jobs

Thank you for your article on this perpetually divisive subject, and I appreciate the care you took to present a balanced view from both sides.

An adjunct to this discussion is earned pay vs take-home pay. The spread between the two has steadily increased over the past couple of decades, which is (in large part) why many request higher wages.

In the grand scheme of things, it’s often the government that gets the bigger proportionate raise than the employee, via payroll taxes.

When yearly increasing income tax, CPP, and EI amounts are deducted from the earned pay, any modest pay increase does little to improve a person’s actual paycheque.

From the employer’s perspective, they match CPP contributions 50/50, pay the higher proportion of EI deductions at 60/40, and pay 100% of the workers’ compensation premiums. And since these amounts are based on gross and not net pay, the hit to a company’s payroll budget directly impacts their financial ability to hire.

I would love to see the take-home pay issue receive far more media attention than it does, because it’s our take-home pay that pays the bills, not what we earn.

LETTER: John Carpay will be dearly missed

“Mr. Carpay’s actions may have been questionable in your eyes but they were not illegal.”

RE: Carpay steps aside as head of the JCCF

Reinstate John Carpay.

He is the heart and soul of the JCCF and has been an effective and tireless advocate for the freedoms of Canadians.

Don’t give in to the demands of the elite political hypocrites and bullies who demand his head for one minor slip up. Hypocrites who continue to cavalierly and unapologetically break every promise they make and who do NOT have the right to judge and condemn Mr. Carpay for his actions.

“He among you who is without sin, let him cast the first stone.”

Mr. Carpay’s actions may have been questionable in your eyes but they were not illegal. We are at war with our political system and our Rights and Freedoms are literally at stake.

I support Mr. Carpay’s actions and demand he be reinstated in his position at the JCCF. Do not give in to the woke and political bullies!!

Bring back John Carpay.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

**your signature**



The Western Standard will never accept government bailout money. By becoming a Western Standard member, you are supporting government bailout-free and proudly western media that is on your side. With your support, we can give Westerners a voice that doesn\'t need taxpayers money.
