  Women's hockey team takes home goldPDF files may take a moment to load

The mantra chosen by the 2011-12 Dinos women's hockey team was "Go To It," a phrase that evokes a no-nonsense style of play and a determined work ethic. Before their final matchup in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport finals, the Dinos head coach Danielle Goyette was proud of what her team had accomplished.

"Did we cause some surprise here? Yeah, I think we came in here an underdog. We showed that if we work as a team and don't count on one or two players, we have a chance to be successful," she said.

Here is a film that has been in on-and-off production since the 1930s, is based on a well-received novel, eventually was given a $250 million budget, and has the director of WALL-E and Finding Nemo at the helm. The resulting film is a bit of a mess, even though it's also consistently entertaining and is chock-full of great ideas.

  Race on trial in CalgaryPDF files may take a moment to load

On the surface, race no longer appears to be an issue in North America. People of colour are respected and sometimes idolized while occupying many positions of authority in society, including some of the highest offices in government.
