Vox Populi

Letter: Increase to Canmore's municipal property taxes unwarranted

Letter: Paid parking will push residents out of town to shop

Editor: There has been some concern shown by permanent residents in regards to the paid parking issue.

Letter: Christmas advertisement was humourous

Editor: I thought the Peak Painting advertisement was humorous. No need to crucify them for it.

Letter: Stop parking in the fire lanes

Editor: Just wanted to remind everyone about those lanes that are in front of places like Safeway and Save-On-Foods, and a few others. These are called Fire Lanes. They are there so that emergency vehicles can get there in the case of emergencies.

Letter: Thanks for helping

Editor: I drive a plow truck as a profession. I would like to thank everyone in Hubman Landing for helping me to get going. The snow was heavy, wet and very deep. I went to turn around at the end of the cul-de-sac and got stuck.

Letter: Kenney's true colours on display

Editor: The true colours of Alberta’s Premier Jason Kenney are now revealed. We now have a premier with draconian policies that are attacking our Democracy.

Letter: Slowing down benefits everyone

Editor: In June 2019, Community Cruisers launched a campaign to advocate for 30-km/h speed limits where people live, work, shop and play in Canmore and Banff.

Letter: Apologies for inappropriate advertising content

Editor: Last week we ran an advertisement that, in an attempt in a bit of edgy humour, was unintentionally hurtful and offensive to some Outlook readers. We are truly sorry.

Letter: Advertisement from local company was offensive

Editor: I am writing to you in regards to the advertisement running in your latest edition of the Rocky Mountain Outlook for Peak Performance Painting.

Editor: While I am not a lawyer, it seems that Banff Councillor Peter Poole, who disagrees with the sanctions placed against him, were enough for you to remove him from being acting or deputy mayor, should also be sanctioned in the following ways.
