Taber Community Centre parking lot upgrades a welcome addition

Dear Editor:

I express a deep thanks to the town leaders and staff along with the construction companies for the beautifully renovated Community Centre parking lot.

Beautiful may sound like an over-expressive description of tar and gravel, but we surely must all agree that in its finished look, it is just that.

Our town leaders and service groups continue to shine in their efforts and accomplishments as they work to make our town a very desirable community in which to live.

Province should be looking to hire more RCMP

Dear Editor:

My senior conservative friends and I aren’t surprised that Premier Jason Kenney would try to kick out the RCMP for daring to investigate his corrupt party, while we watch more and more fines being levied against their members by Elections Alberta.

None of us, including our retired RCMP friends, are dumb enough to believe his lies that it would be a lot cheaper, when we know Ottawa contributes huge amounts to their costs for the provinces. Letting him create a Police State with him at the controls would be a huge mistake and we have no intention of supporting such.

While he finds it smart to whine about the lack of proper policing for rural Albertans and tries to blame it on the RCMP, he ignores the obvious solution to the problem. Hire more officers under the sheriff’s department that was created by former conservatives for that very purpose, and once again proves he isn’t very smart. We know our hero Peter Lougheed would have handled it differently.
