Eisler is ignorant of true Ukraine

Re: "Ukraine belongs with Russia, not the West" in the St. Albert Gazette, Wednesday, April 2 edition (page 26) and "St. Albert Gazette named 'Best in Canada'" (page 5).

Seniors still enduring bath-time hardships

In olden times in St. Albert, bathing was tricky. One could hide behind a partition and, with a bucket, have a makeshift shower. If one were in the chips, they could climb some rickety stairs and have a soak in a big claw-foot tub. It cost 50 cents.

Ensure complaints are valid

My wife and I moved from a suburb neighourhood in St. Albert to a condo in the Perron District in downtown St. Albert a couple of years ago. Having amenities such as restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance was a big part of this decision so we were especially pleased when we heard about a new restaurant/pub being opened just down the street, especially given that the owners of the...

Let's talk brainwashing

In his letter-to-the-editor, St. Albert Gazette, April 9, Kenneth Kully doesn't seem to understand the nature of brainwashing. It is not directed by an organization or country to people outside its sphere, but those within it. The term and method was first used by the Catholic church to solidify its position within its own adherent group, and not directed towards confirmed heretics.

St. Albert's speed limits need attention

Read with great interest your editorial on some of the ridiculous speed designations in St. Albert. The one on Churchill is so ridiculous and everyone knows it's a "cash cow." How could the section by Heritage be 60 as well as Levasseur and Churchill 50?

Concerning residential sidewalk snow clearing

Probably everybody knows that it is just about impossible to walk on our St. Albert residential sidewalks during all these long winter months because only a very small percentage of residents bother to shovel the snow off their adjacent sidewalks. And it becomes even far worse when we go through...

Mayor and most of council out to lunch

Mayor Crouse, you are starting to act like an entitled PC party member. I too would like to take city coffers and build myself some fancy new digs at taxpayer’s expense. Is this your legacy before you leave office? You have a nicely designed city hall already and have taken over some other...

Taxpayers deserve better health access

Wow, St. Albert is growing bigger and faster. The amount of people living here is more than the medical services can keep up to. For instance, there is only one DynaLife office in St. Albert.
