Why is the Flames GM not within the crosshairs?
Re: ‘It’s on the gamers to reply’ after change behind bench sends message, March 6
I need to handle the elephant within the room relating to the current hiring of Darryl Sutter as the brand new coach of the Calgary Flames. 5 coaches in 5 years is ridiculous. When does the duty lie with GM Brad Treliving that he can not rent the correct coach, and maybe a change within the GM is required as an alternative?
No well being upside to coal mining
Re: Coal mining: The place can we go from right here?; Six proposed mines are already in numerous phases of improvement within the province, March 6
Municipality of Crowsnest Move councillor Lisa Sygutek is quotedabout her notion that coal mining will be executed safely, with fashionable regulation. She accuses mine opponents of ‘misinformation’. Sadly, it’s Sygutek who’s spreading misinformation.
Even a fast evaluate of human well being literature will present giant numbers of scientific papers outlining critical, even deadly, impacts on human well being from merely residing close to open-pit coal mines. In my current evaluate, I discovered over 30 papers by Dr. Michael Hendryx and his collaborators. Different authors are much less prolific however attain related conclusions.
I discovered just about no scientific studies suggesting that residing close to a coal mine is protected for folks, fish, or wildlife. Realistically, in the event you get sick, you don’t care if it was the air you breathed or the water you drank that made you sick. You simply need it cleaned up, or higher, by no means tousled.

Tourism advert stunning
In February, the Canadian authorities declared China’s therapy of the Uighur minority as a genocide, and the U.S. is poised to do the identical.
But, on Saturday, within the Herald is a full-page advert positioned by the Consulate Normal of the Folks’s Republic of China in Calgary inviting us to tour Xinjiang, “the Uyghur Autonomous Area”, promising loads of touristy glimpses at Uyghur tradition, written in poor English. They subjugate the folks, then create a vacationer trade round it that I’m positive doesn’t profit the resident inhabitants and certain does a publicity whitewash of the tradition.
I do know the media is beneath large financial strain now, however typically morals should come earlier than gross sales. I’m upset within the Herald for publishing this advert.
The Chinese language authorities should suppose all Canadians are naive, idiots and simple gross sales targets. I for one am not signing up for this or every other tour in China anytime quickly.
