Editor, the Gauntlet,I feel that we have been let down yet again from our elected student union. This time, it is in the form of the response to the University of Calgary stopping credit card payments for fees. What the university is doing is a travesty. Not only will it cause major inconveniences but more… Continue reading Letter: Time to show some backbone
Editor, the Gauntlet, Chris Tait’s article (“Canada Needs to Recognize Kosovo,” Feb. 28 Gauntlet) presents a very limited view on the problem of the possible separation of that Serbian province. Firstly, the author tries to convince us that the United Nations takes care of Kosovo, helping the break-away province “to establish acceptable level of security,”… Continue reading Letter: Not so fast, scallywag!

Editor, the Gauntlet, Upon reading the editorial in last Thursday’s paper concerning the Robert Dziekanski tragedy [“Mounties need to cool heels,” editorial, Nov. 22 Gauntlet], I furiously threw down the Gauntlet to the floor. It was like I was in some kind of dramatic movie. Despite having the benefit of making me feel important, I… Continue reading Letter: Outraged reader throws down the Gauntlet
Editor, the Gauntlet: First, your recent editorial on Stroumboulopoulos [“Recipients should be more relevant,” editorial, Oct. 25 Gauntlet] got it half-right. He shouldn’t get a University of Calgary honorary degree now, but his getting it later is not a given. In any case, George got it right with his remark: “bizarre.” Add oilman Gwyn Morgan… Continue reading Letter: We’re kinda-sorta almost awesome!

Editor, the Gauntlet: [re: “SU should have stood firm,” editorial and “SU prepares for tuition consultation,” Katy Anderson, Oct. 18 Gauntlet] In the October 18th edition of the Gauntlet, the issue of tuition consultations and the Students’ Union’s involvement was brought to the forefront with the editorial and a news article. I would like to… Continue reading Letter: Tuition response defended
Editor, the Gauntlet, It is a sad day for justice and freedom in Canada when the barbarous murder of innocent babies is declared a right, but honestly showing the gruesome act for what it really is, is “going too far.”Abortion rights advocates will some day be seen in the same light as selfish slave owners… Continue reading God loves babies
Editors, the GauntletRe: Something I am a supporter of Alberta’s New Democrats. One of my favourite teams is the Dinos football team. Win or lose, the players are always role models. I understand they first crack the books; then they wear the Dinos jersey with pride. To honour the French fact in Canada I have… Continue reading Reader incredibly supports both NDP, Dinos
