STAND WITH HIM?
Justin Trudeau calls Alberta’s new proposals on the treatment of transgender youth the most anti-LBGT in the country and says that, if Premier Danielle Smith wants to fight to improve the lives of Canadians, she should stand with him — get that, stand with him — to fight the high cost of groceries, the high cost of fuel and to create more housing when it’s his draconian carbon tax that created the high cost of everything in this once-great country.
That’s all on his back, and most Canadians want the carbon tax scrapped to help Canadians, so, no matter what we have to say, he’s the one who decided to implement his carbon tax and who is spending billions and billions all over the planet except right here in Canada, where the money is needed most right now.
Standing by his side would be to have every premier and province agree with all his ruinous policies and spending and to agree to continue putting us even further into the mess he put us in.
NOT ALBERTA PLAYING POLITICS
Regarding the trans issue, federal Health Minister Mark Holland had the audacity to accuse Alberta of “playing politics” on the subject after it announced new rules. Children can’t drive, vote, smoke, drink, gamble, etc., but some think it’s totally acceptable for a 13-year old to make a permanent life-altering decision they might possibly regret later in life.
I remember how naïve, gullible and easily manipulated I could be as a teenager. Sometimes you learn the hard way. Liberals are the ones playing politics on this and various other issues.
PWHL WILL HAVE NAMES EVENTUALLY
Re: Women’s teams need names, letter, Feb. 2
The writer who was commenting on the PWHL may not be aware that WHL is already copyrighted by the Western Hockey League. (The writer suggested the PWHL be called the WHL.)
I do agree that the women’s teams need some names, but that will come in time. They are new, and sooner or later corporations will step up with names or, as suggested by the letter writer, a contest could be held to select names.
