    Hi David
    I’ve had to cancel my subscription to the Medicine Hat News. They have laid off (fired) Jeremy Appell. You may not get my subscription payment on the usual date, but I’ll put it in when I’m sure MHN has really closed my account. Keep up the good work!

    I listened to Kenney in both official languages and he was bang on. Great job defending Alberta, it’s interests, and the thousands of hardworking Albertans who provide just under 10% of the GDP in these hard times! Thank God for Canadian politicians standing up against very misguided and dangerous leaders like May and Blanchet!

      Bravo to the indefatigable residents of Alberta, one of 10 provinces in Confederation, for providing 1/10th of our GDP.

    You should ask the staff if they are happy about getting rid of free parking. Not having a spot to park when you show up for your shift isn’t fun.

    Kim Siever’s blog takes posters to a donation request after they comment. It also allows direct pay by credit card. Is there any way you could do this, too?

    See the top of bandleader Kenney’s wiki page. ,,,”Canada’s premier dance band” opinion (hyperbole) courtesy of Jason himself.
    Love your writing, from Montreal.

    Herbert Martin “Mart” Kenney C.M. (March 7, 1910 – February 8, 2006) was a Canadian jazz musician and bandleader whose big band Mart Kenney and His Western Gentlemen was Canada’s premier dance band during the 1930s and 1940s [Source: Jason Kenney]
