  WolfCop brings fuzz to the forcePDF files may take a moment to load

Lou Grenou (Leo Fafard) is a lazy, alcoholic, womanizing cop in the small town of Woodhaven. After a satantic cult transforms him into a werewolf, he becomes WolfCop — a beast of a police officer who serves justice with fangs, fuzz and campy horror.

Unlike many horror films, WolfCop, which is now in theatres, doesn’t rely on CGI for its special effects. The practical effects bring a retro feel, reminiscent of old monster movies.

Wearing the WolfCop costume was fun and challenging, says Fafard.

  Letter to the editor: Bike parking storage not as cheap as it sounds PDF files may take a moment to load

"Thirty dollars for a whole year sounds remarkable to me.”

My guess is that Adam doesn’t cycle to school. If he did he would know that there are barely six months in the year when biking (pedal or motor) to school is feasible. And those are months when the fewest students attend U of C.

I appreciate SU’s efforts to protect our precious bikes, but let’s be realistic about the charges. Personally, I would rather pay $30 for a good lock and park my bike in a more convenient spot.

  UPass price set to increase by $5PDF files may take a moment to load

The price of your UPass will go up this September, but not by much.

Calgary Transit approved a $5 increase on the UPass for the fall semester, putting the total cost at $122 per semester.

The cost of the UPass is tied to the consumer price index and is subject to annual raises. If fees for transit customers who aren’t full-time University of Calgary students go up, yours do too, but only by 30 per cent of the total cost.
