Lawn chemical poisoning

Amanda Poll, Health Promotion Facilitator,  Alberta Health Services - Spring is here - that means sunshine, warmer weather and yard work! As we start planning out all of the work that needs to happen on our lawns and in our gardens, we may forget that the chemicals we use to make everything lush, green and fruitful can also be dangerous.

RCMP Crime Reduction Units in EAD and SAD on the hunt for fugitive

Kamikaze Kreepshow

Phil Burpee - I have always felt that it best serves the public discourse to strive for as much accuracy as possible when throwing around terminology, which is often done wantonly. When the recent tragic piling-in of a Boeing 737 into the Ethiopian dirt was being addressed by various officials and muck-mucks from industry, the term deployed was ‘contact with terrain’. Well, okay – I think you mean ‘crash’, right? Referring to a three-hundred ton jet carving out a thirty-foot deep divot in the ground as a ‘contact with terrain’ is about as meaningful as calling a tornado a ‘twirling of weather’ – no, it’s a furious hellsbroth of unbridled and murderous intensity, and no flaccid euphemism can make it otherwise.

Beaver Mines sewer project Gong Show continues

Cornell Van Ryk - At the MD Council Meeting on March 25, 2019, Council effectively decided to start over at square one on the Beaver Mines Sewer project.

When I first put pen to paper regarding this project, I anticipated one or two letters to the editor. Little did I know this thing would turn into a saga. Readers are probably as tired of reading my rants as I am of writing them.

re. the Jason Kenney platform

Phil Burpee - I like to think I’m a discerning voter, and so I thought I’d better have a good gander at Jason Kenney’s UCP electoral platform to help me determine whether or not I might toss him my vote. And even though I see Mr. Kenney elicit a great wave of warmth and fuzziness amongst those who follow his pronouncements all up and down the province, I want nonetheless to get to the bones of the matter. Democracy demands no less. So, let’s see…… here’s what I’ve cobbled together to date.
