LETTER: Banff residents have already rejected paid parking twice

Editor: Ignoring the wishes of the residents, the Banff council is once again trying to push paid parking through. I've spoken to a number of people and most of them don't know that the Town is trying to bring in paid parking again.

LETTER: OK with mountain named after Nazi collaborator

Editor: Re: "It is time to talk about renaming Mount Pétain." No, we should not scour the landscape in an attempt to erase every remnant of history that doesn’t conform to the militant progressivism of the moment.

LETTER: Hypocritical – and typical – Canmore

Editor: I would like to respond to the letter "Not Loud Enough" in the Oct. 29 issue of the Outlook . I really don't understand why so many people have an issue with the Three Sisters development going forward.

LETTER: TSMV development represents the past

Editor: Canmore must do more to ensure that our community’s decisions on development advance priorities for the future, and not the priorities of the past.

LETTER: Perplexed and frustrated with UCP direction on health care

Editor: I am a retired nurse with 40 years of experience. I have gone through many changes in the health care system. I have major concerns about the choices the UPC are making for all of us.

LETTER: What are our values?

Editor: We are writing to applaud Karsten Heuer for his Letter to the Editor on Oct. 15, 2020. He introduces the irrefutable moral argument that calls on us to place the more-than-human world before greed.

LETTER: Not loud enough

Editor: From what I understand, the Three Sisters Development is a well-known issue, not only amongst longtime locals, but new residents, weekenders, and tourists alike.

LETTER: Grateful for staff at Elevation Place

Editor: Kudos to all the staff of Elevation Place for making it work during difficult times. Sandy Lecour, Canmore

LETTER: Where are elk supposed to go?
