LETTER: Wage increases offside with circumstances

Editor: In half a page of the Rocky Mountain Outlook (Sept. 3 2020, p. 6) reporter Jenna Dulewich neatly summarizes the controversy concerning reconstruction of the McDougall Memorial Church near Morley.

LETTER: Businesses should play a part to ensure COVID-19 compliance

LETTER: The 'Tooth Fairy' does it

Editor: The “Tooth Fairy” is who picks up the bottles and cups tossed over the walk way at Johnston Canyon, beside our trails, roadways, in parking lots and everywhere else.

LETTER: Premier Kenney should focus on Alberta's problems

Editor: I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but why on earth would Premier Jason Kenney want to stride into such a divisive issue as Black Lives Matter, which has gained such momentum across the U.S., Canada and the world.

LETTER: Disappointed by disrespectful behaviour towards our national parks

Editor: 2020 has been an unusual year for the mountain national parks with international tourists unable/unwilling to visit Canada due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
