Schimke The water cooler discussion a week ago Monday was predictable, the Las Vegas massacre of concert goers and a vehicle assault on a police officer and Jasper Avenue pedestrians in Edmonton. “ Terrorism is simply getting wrapped up in an uncompromising ideology that leads to the justification for violence. As would be expected, there was much grief expressed for those gunned down like animals in Vegas, and fear about what happened in Edmonton. But the comment that continues to haunt me was when the kindest person on staff said, “the one good thing, at least the Vegas shooting wasn’t a terrorist attack”. Now the only possible rationale for such a comment would be an inner belief that the shooter in Vegas was not a terrorist because he was white with a traditional American name.

Even though the white guy had an arsenal of modified assault weapons to maximize carnage in Vegas, why would anyone consider him less of a terrorist than the individual in Edmonton with an ISIS flag? This year in Canada there have been more innocent Muslims gunned down by a white extremist than the other way around. On January 29, Alexandre Bissonnette opened fire in a Quebec City mosque as prayers were ending, killing six and injuring 19. Iman Hassan Guillet during the funeral for the six said, “Alexandre Bissonnette, before being a killer, was a victim himself”. “Before he planted bullets in the heads of his victims, somebody planted ideas more dangerous than bullets in this head”, said Guillet. Terrorism is any act against citizens by an individual or group that subscribes to an uncompromising ideology that can justify and rationalize violence on innocents. Writer, Jason Burke, in “The Myth of the Lone Wolf”, reminds us that during the 1960’s and 70’s many home grown groups and lone wolves, on the right and left, were terrorizing Europe and America.

I am not a scientist or a climatologist but I have studied the issue of global warming quite extensively for the past 20 years. In reading his letter, I would suggest that he is comparing apples and plums. Meteorological and geological scientists have done extensive research on the climate change that has occurred since the beginning of time. G&G Mechanical Ltd.

E C A r e v i e w H A N N A / C o r o N A t i o n / S t e t t l e r , A b O c t o b e r 1 2 ' 1 7 5 mail bag Democracy received a slap Dear Editor Regarding the upcoming election in the Town and County of Stettler, I would very much like to encourage eligible voters to examine the issues carefully and vote carefully for their choice of candidate who they wish to represent them at the municipal level for the next four years. Government affects all of us at the national, provincial and municipal levels and it is at the municipal level where our votes are most important. The County of Stettler voters have some very important decisions to make and as Canadians, need to realize how important their individual votes are in this particular upcoming election. County residents voted ‘NO’ in a vote of the electorate held Mon. June 27, regarding the wasteful expense and cost of the new county public works building. Exactly 1047 eligible voters weighed in on the issue at voting stations throughout the County, with 54 per cent of voters saying no to a new shop facility and 46 per cent of the voters saying yes. The County Shop building is historically the largest capital project ever undertaken by the County of Stettler. Never before had a plebiscite vote been necessary in the County of Stettler regarding such an important issue involving such a large expenditure of money. Within days of the plebiscite being defeated, the sitting County of Stettler councillors voted to proceed with the building project using money that was meant for necessary new roads to pay for the cost of the building project. Stettler County council bulldozed the majority vote and majority will of the public and spent a very large amount of money on a building that was much more than was needed. SHAME on the councillors for defying the will of the people in a legal vote. The government did not listen to the people. NOW is the time to make them listen.

Only Ernest Gendre was strong enough to stand up and vote against the spending frenzy of Stettler County councillors. Please, as a Canadian, I am asking the County of Stettler municipal voters to take this opportunity and vote the incumbent councillors out of office. Democracy has received a slap in the face and voters need to stand up for Canada and for democracy. Christine McGhee, former County resident Rimbey, Ab.
