DO GUNS HAVE THEIR PLACE?

March 9, 2018 – I will start out by saying that I am not anti-gun . If I had been in the possession of one a couple of years ago I would have blown that bear off my porch. I had been woke up by the dogs about 1:20 in the wee hours, they wanted out. So I groggily got up and opened the door to let them out. Then they froze- all three of them. I pushed old Buster with my knee and told him to go but he wouldn’t. I prompted him again and he stubbornly refused to budge.

COMMENTARY – POLITICIANS SHOULD BOYCOTT QUEBEC CONFERENCE

Mar 6, 2019 – We have sent the premier to argue the case. Our MPs have argued the case. A convoy recently returned to state our case and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wouldn’t even meet with them. Still, the east and Quebec does not listen.

Does anyone think sending one councillor from High Prairie really matters?

I think there is a better way.

I ask Long and others to seriously consider what would happen if no one in Alberta attended the conference in protest? It’s called a boycott.

COMMENTARY – ON SHANIA AND SUZUKI

May 1, 2018 – There are so many exciting things these days. Outraged folks will picket a shop because they don’t like a sign in the window.
Meanwhile, I’m wondering where the outrage is over one of our favourite country singers, Shania Twain.
She says she was caught off-guard by an interview question a few days ago. The question was asked if she would have voted for American President Donald Trump.

EDITORIAL – SUMMER BRINGS THE VAGRANTS

May 18, 2018 – Can anything be done about High Prairie’s ‘Bridge Crew?’
The short answer, at least as far as police chit-chatting with the High Prairie Chamber of Commerce recently, is, “Not really. Not unless they are doing something against the law.”
Of course, there might be local loitering bylaws that might kick in. Which mostly means, push the problem from one suffering business down the street to another business and make them suffer a bit.
