  Editorial: Calgary needs NenshiPDF files may take a moment to load

On Nov. 7, Calgary’s beloved mayor, Naheed Nenshi, announced he will be running for re-election in 2013. This news was not surprising, as Nenshi now seems to be as much a part of Calgary as cowboy hats and urban sprawl. With his approval ratings currently at an impressive 88 per cent, and high-profile candidates, including Alderman Andre Chabot already announcing that they won’t run, it seems safe to say that Nenshi, a former Students’ Union president at the University of Calgary, won’t have much trouble getting re-elected.

  Delhi 2 Dublin go coast to coastPDF files may take a moment to load

Despite popular belief, being a successful musician isn’t all about “living the dream.” In reality, the life of a musician is a life of sacrifice. Musicians usually have to prioritize their music before friends, family, a beautiful IKEA-furnished condo and a standard nine-to-five office job. Life for most musicians involves a lot of time being on the road, living in hotels, unpacking equipment and doing it all over again in a new city. The Vancouver-based global mashup group Delhi 2 Dublin knows this life all too well.

  Divided or unitedPDF files may take a moment to load

Canada has a history of separatist movements, mostly due to its multicultural society, which is constantly growing by welcoming immigrants from other countries. National unity can be hard to promote when there are many different voices, but unity is beneficial to all Canadians. Currently, there is little threat of any part of Canada seceding, yet, if Canada adopted a political culture similar to that of the United States, the new political culture would undermine the unity of Canada.

  Critical concerns about MacHall kitchensPDF files may take a moment to load

MacEwan Student Centre is the heart of the University of Calgary. An average of 30,000 people eat, study or socialize in MSC every day. With 20 food vendors, three restaurants and two convenience stores, MSC is a lifeline for U of C students. Health and safety standards need to be met in a building as bustling as MSC. However, recent Alberta Health Services health and safety inspection reports show health code violations at U of C food locations.

  Dinos win fifth-straight Hardy CupPDF files may take a moment to load

Success in Canadian Interuniversity Sport football is difficult to achieve once. It is truly special when a team can repeat success over a number of seasons. A football program is an administrative and athletic ballet of developing, recruiting and organizing a vast multitude of athletes. With a 38–14 victory over the University of Regina Rams and a Canada West record fifth-straight Hardy Cup title, the University of Calgary Dinos have proven once again that they are a truly special football program.

  Whose land is it anyway?PDF files may take a moment to load

With all the debate around Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline, competing interests fail to question the ownership of the land on which it is projected to be built. One look at a map would suggest that the land is well within the generally accepted boundaries of Canada, however, a closer look says otherwise.

  Letter: MacHall renovationsPDF files may take a moment to load

[RE: “Letter: U of C student consultation a farce,” Nov. 1, 2012]


One of the key platform promises of my election as Students’ Union president was to consult students on the future of MacEwan Student Centre because the university had put forward a draft plan for renovations. But that’s exactly what it is — a draft — and exactly why we need students’ opinions on it.
