LETTER: Alberta government needs to step up and fight for province

Why hasn’t any recent premier of Alberta stood up for our province against Ottawa. I thought that finally, we had a champion in Jason Kenney, but he turned out to be another of Trudeau’s useful idiots.

RE: MAKICHUK: Thoughts, dreams and hopes for an independent West

I am a supporter of the Western Standard. I read your piece on an independent West, and I agree with you for sure.

A couple of points; Why hasn’t any recent premier of Alberta stood up for our province against Ottawa. I thought that finally, we had a champion in Jason Kenney, but he turned out to be another of Trudeau’s useful idiots. 

He spoke many times before his election and a few times after, of the federal government staging “yet another attack on Alberta and our energy sector.”

I wonder how many times do you need to be attacked before you realize that you are at war?

It seems that no one, not Jason Kenney, not even Ralph Klein or Peter Lougheed had an undertaking of the constitution.

If they did, they would understand each of the provinces are already independent states within a confederation of independent states.

We already have control of our future. We just refuse to use that control. We ARE independent, we simply need to exercise our independence. 

Our government needs to step up and truly represent Albertans and protect our future, our rights, and our prosperity.

Maybe dust off that copy of the constitution, if we still have one.

    that’s not what the constitution says at all.

    In 1935 Albertans elected the first Social Credit government anywhere in the world with 54% of the vote and 56 of 63 seats in the legislature. The party did not even have a leader, the new MLA’s had to vote for one after the election.

    Times were desperate. Albertans realized change was absolutely necesary.

    These are desperate times. The traditional parties have adopted economically devistating policies. It is time to let them go.

    Change will come from the will of the people. If the will of the people is to continue to vote for the status quo in the UCP or NDP, that’s what we get.
    If the people decide to actually take control of our province then there is only one option as it stands today.
    That option is the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta.
    The people have to finally realize that the same old is not working for Alberta.

    Go to wildrosenation.com and buy a membership. Make a tax deductible donation because change is not free.
    Then get up off your ass and get involved with your local CA and be part of a new government and the future of Alberta.

    Until that happens, be happy with the black hole we’re in.

    Edmonton’s Union for teachers, CUPE, doesn’t work for their members, the Union works for Rachael Notely,

    Just ask her Husband ,Lou Arab, Communications Representative for, guess who, CUPE.That’s why the Union is pushing masks , mandated vaccines and now jabs for our kids because Rachel Notely wants it. CUPE WORKS FOR NOTELY.

    He won’t stand up because he doesn’t care..and because it’s more profitable for him to side with Trudeau and Notely.

    Not one Premier in Canada has stood up for their voters no matter their political stripe. They have all taken part in the fear , control campaign with the help of the media.

    There’s only one thing to do …Don’t comply because now they are after our kids.

    If we don’t protect them from this vaccine what good are we?

LETTER: Message to parents of children 12 and under regarding COVID-19 Vaccines in BC

Do you believe your child is mature enough to offer qualified informed consent?

School-aged children are now legally allowed to consent to a Covid vaccine. This became official in BC in May 2021 when Dr. Bonnie Henry invoked the Infants Act, Section 7, which states the government can provide medical treatment if the child consents. It is called “mature minor consent.”

A child is not allowed to drink, drive, vote, or be at home alone. Do you believe your child is “mature” enough, intellectually and emotionally prepared, to offer qualified informed consent as a “mature minor” – a decision that can affect the rest of their lives?

RE: MAKICHUK: Seeking economic diversity when it’s all going to hell

I am a new subscriber to Western Standard and I want to say it’s refreshing to read your no-nonsense articles.

In fact, I enjoy reading all the columnists and it’s good to see some “voices of reason” within such a plethora of left-wing loonies.

LETTER: Alberta needs a leader with a spine to stand up to Ottawa

“We talk and talk and talk and complain and grumble and nothing moves the needle.”

RE: MAKICHUK: Thoughts, dreams and hopes for an independent West

Good Morning Mr. Makichuk:

I totally agree with your column on leaving with the exception of needing a leader.  We talk and talk and talk and complain and grumble and nothing moves the needle. 

We complain about how Ottawa is screwing us and yet no one steps forward to lead with a simple, forceful message that everyone can understand and relate to.  We need a leader with spine, testicular fortitude, a vision and no fear or apology to the woke political left. 

We need to stop this incessant whining because that’s how the rest of Canada now sees us — as a whiner.  We need to shut up and take action.  I think if the everyday Joe knew where to start or what to do they would but they need a leader and concerted action. 

Also, if we could form one large block with Saskatchewan this would give us a bit more of an edge but we need someone to say “okay we’re going this way” and point the way.

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.
