Letters to the Editor

Youths provide kindness by the shovelful

Dear Editor, A knock at the front door of our acreage home had me running to answer it. Through the glass side panels I could see two teenagers waiting for me to respond.

Buyers beware when purchasing home

Alhough I feel Amanda Christie’s frustration with living on a busy street, her letter did not acknowledge her ignorance of two incredibly important factors in deciding where to build or purchase a home.

Community support sweet music to food bank

Dear Editor, A tremendous round of applause for an outstanding effort with the 2018 Christmas Concert for the Okotoks Food Bank. We have received so many nice compliments on the two sold out shows.

Cimarron Boulevard concerns not being heard

Dear Editor, The residents on Cimarron Boulevard have been quietly stewing amongst themselves for years, wondering and hoping when the Town will finally realize the urgent need to ‘fix’ Cimarron Boulevard.

Christmas rings true in grocery line

Dear Editor, The spirit of Christmas is alive and active in Okotoks. On Dec. 14, I was in Sobeys buying a few groceries. My debit card would not work because the ATB system was down. My newly renewed credit card would not work either.

Albertans lucky to have Notley in leadership role

Fifty years ago, Grant Notley was a strong voice in opposition to the Alberta government policy of low royalties on our resources.

Money needed for snow removal

Dear Editor, I read the Western Wheel’s article on the budget and wondered why monies can’t be allocated to expanding snow removal. We often start getting snow in September and it lasts until April if not later.

Early snow clearers provide relief for seniors, kids

Re: snow clearing on the pathway Early the other morning I had to deliver my car down to the tire changers to get it set up for winter.

Town should not get into transit business

Dear Editor, The idea of local transit once again being discussed by town administration and council has me upset. There was already one attempt at local transit (the subsidized GO program) that failed miserably.

Canada shouldn’t fall into carbon tax trap

Dear Editor, In response to Sheelagh Matthews’ article on Oct. 31, a climate changes hero would be one to evaluate a policy based on attainable results and transmit these conclusions to the public in a truthful manner.
