Letters to the Editor

Council needs to rethink environmental responsibility

Dear Editor, Although Coun.

Thank you to Beiseker Lions Club

Dear Editor, The Beiseker Lions Club has helped to raise $25,000 in the 2018 Beiseker Lions STARS Golf Classic held Aug. 2.

A dark day for county residents

Dear Editor, Sept. 25 was a dark day for Rocky View County residents. Council – led by Deputy Reeve Jerry Gautreau, with support from Reeve Greg Boehlke, Couns.

Support, don't criticize

Dear Editor, I know my comments will see a small portion of citizens reply with negative responses, regarding the federal government’s decision to cancel the tax-free portion of pay for our mayor and council.

In defence of supply management

Dear Editor, I’ve been a dairy farmer in the Bowden area for 19 years. I farm here with my husband and three children. I’d like to express some of my thoughts about the debate on supply management as it’s important in our agricultural community.

Canada geese – not so much

Dear Editor, You would think the brown, bottom-heavy bird with a black, giraffe-like neck and head with a white mask around the chin and eyes would be proud to be called Canadian.

Gratitude for our first responders

Dear Editor, Our family would like to thank everyone who came out to support our awesome first responders at airdrieFEST, Sept. 8.

Continued concerns about area crime

Dear Editor, We found a small red car that had been parked for some time at a place on the road where they could watch three farms. We passed it, and then returned 20 minutes later and it was still there.

A country worth defending

Dear Editor, Sorry. It’s the Canadian way. Apologies and handwringing are a cornerstone of our Canadian vernacular. Just say “sorry” and offer your regret. Cut someone off in the produce section of the grocery store? Sorry.

Too much crime in RVC

Dear Editor, Our family has lived in Rocky View County (RVC) since before it was a county, before Alberta was a province – that is, for more than 100 years. Never before have we been nervous or worried about our safety, until now, in 2018.
