Letter: Passenger rail travel is feasible in Alberta

Dear editor, I want to make it as a passenger rail developer and bring the concept of passenger rail to millions of citizens and visitors of Alberta. Do I think these things are possible? Yes, as this is my goal. There is so much we can do in Alberta, and so many goals I wish to take on once a passenger rail travel system is complete.
Letter: Trudeau has to go

Letter: Trudeau has to go

Dear editor, It’s time to poop or get off the pot, as our drama teacher Prime Minister just announced an election this past weekend. We’ve been walking the walk and talking the talk for the last few years, and now it’s time to push the envelope and make sure Canadian voters understand the premise.

Our View: Vaccine proof

While various institutions and businesses have announced mandatory vaccine policies in Alberta – including the organization that oversees the Calgary Flames and Calgary Stampeders – no such mandate has been made by the provincial government, as of press time.

Editorial: Preventable spike

Editorial: Preventable spike

After a surge in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, the Alberta government has decided to finally listen to what health-care specialists have been cautioning, and backtrack on its plans to lift its few remaining pandemic-related restrictions.

Letter: Treat others the way you would like to be treated

Dear editor, It is so sad that those who choose to not get vaccinated can still affect the rest of us. If only we could be in control of our own health.
Letter: Voters should remember Rocky View County's debt this fall

Letter: Voters should remember Rocky View County's debt this fall

Dear editor, As the municipal election approaches, Rocky View County residents would be wise to consider the County's current debt and the abject failure of the current council to do anything about it.
Opinion: My first apartment

Opinion: My first apartment

I recently read the most stressful life events include the death of a loved one, divorce, major illness or injury, job loss, and moving. Although I have been lucky enough not to experience the first four of those unfortunate events in my 22 years to date, I recently moved into my first apartment and man, was that an experience.
