  • Election season on the horizon for Albertans?

    Choosing the right moment to force a federal election is the ultimate in speculative political maneuvering, and Canadian politicians have been desperate to properly interpret these tea leaves since the days of Confederation. More often than not, the political prognosticators fail to locate the pulse of the Canadian electorate, and more than a few campaigns ... Read More »

  • Alberta government not interested in stewardship

    Editor: Statues of dead white people are falling down and some people say “You can not cancel history.” I agree. History must not be forgotten. Every historical figure should be remembered. But the question is who should be honoured?  Some must not be forgotten but without honour.  Hitler must never be forgotten but never honoured.

  • Eat seaweed, not animals to reduce emissions

    Editor: Re: “Sustainability, stock, and seaweed: changing cattle feed to combat climate change” (July 19). The seaweed isn’t always greener. We don’t need to resort to desperate measures like feeding cows seaweed-an unnatural food for grazing land-dwellers-in order to reduce methane emissions. The answer is already in front of us: Just don’t eat animals. According ... Read More »
