Hiking trail has rules

As a frequent cyclist on St. Albert's beautiful Red Willow trail system, I am often amazed at some people's lack of trail etiquette. At times it is so blatant that I'm not sure if they even know the "rules of the trail", such as stay in the right lane, keep dogs leashed (and not have the leash go across both lanes of the trail), etc. If...

City manager should sue on his own dime

City manager Patrick Draper, a City of St. Albert employee, believes that he was defamed in an online blog (front page, July 19 Gazette). It is possible that what was written about him was false and, if so, he is entitled to defend himself.

Small business excels at polite service

I enjoyed your commentary on polite behaviour (July 16 column by Gazette publisher Brian Bachynski). I have often experienced indifference when paying for purchases and understand your reaction.

Let residents use water they pay for

I am trying to wrap my head around the decision of our city council to bring forward a city water usage bylaw. With the cost of water at this time on our usage bills from the city, we are being charged a handsome amount for its use.

Water policy not the answer

It does not happen too often, but I totally agree with the Gazette editorial (“Time to throw water on policy,” Wednesday, July 16). There are a couple of reasons.

We all need to play

Thank you for your editorial of July 9 bringing awareness to the importance of unstructured play for young children. Play is essential to development because it contributes to the cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being of children. It is so important to optimal child development that...

Foreign workers are not to blame

How would you feel if you were asked to work in another country doing jobs that the workers of that country did not apply for and then after you accepted and went to work there for two, three or even four years they changed the rules on you?

Cats shouldn't be roaming

I can't believe the letter that Dianne McDonald wrote into the Gazette (Saturday, July 12). The only thing I agree with is that this cat doesn't deserve to be shot at. Whoever is using a BB gun on animals should be charged with animal cruelty. It is not the cat’s fault it has an irresponsible owner...
