Much thanks to Andy for taking the time and effort to lay out his thinking on what is to become our new, and far more democratic, system of voting in federal...

Taxes vs. oil profits

Jan 12, 2016 / 2:06 pm

Paying $4.75 per gallon ($1.05 a litre) at the pumps when a barrel (45 Imperial gallons) is less than $30.00 makes me wonder if I'm being screwed. By whom,...

In for a bumpy ride

Jan 11, 2016 / 2:12 pm

Be it federal, provincial or municipal elections, out with the old and in with the new! Increase in taxes of course. So I guess they are getting raises at city...

Disband the RDCO

Jan 8, 2016 / 3:17 pm

I'm submitting this letter in anticipation of the city's imminent statistically-valid survey about dog parks. When I still had a dog, we exercised in...

Hold the owner accountable

Jan 8, 2016 / 3:13 pm

Whether the reason for dog attacks is caused by the nature of the breed or irresponsible dog owners is, IMO, a moot point. We live in a highly populated world,...

Owners, not the breed

Jan 8, 2016 / 12:02 pm

I myself think it is complete bull that people are trying to blame dog attacks on pit bulls and Rottweilers, strictly based on what they were bread for. The...

Has anyone noticed?

It's the deed, not the breed

Jan 7, 2016 / 8:13 pm

Bully dogs

Jan 7, 2016 / 8:11 pm

Banning a slippery slope

Problem lies with the owner

Jan 7, 2016 / 1:31 pm

Firstly, there is nothing wrong with the dogs of our country. It is their owners where the problem lies. Here is my suggestion; 1. All dogs should be rated...

It's not breed specific

Jan 7, 2016 / 1:19 pm

Are you serious? Ban certain breeds of dogs? I’m assuming this is a pit bull issue. Ignorance astounds me, to blame it on a dog breed. Look at the...

Banning dog breeds

Jan 7, 2016 / 1:03 pm

I think it's odd that when dog attacks happen, people always question banning an entire breed. Some dogs are more intelligent than others, and need stronger...
