  Letter: GuZoo should be closedPDF files may take a moment to load

It is obvious that Remi Watts ["Feces? Gross," Mar. 31] is making a lot of assumptions and even what I consider prejudicial statements about "average city dwellers" who "cannot see beyond their cul-de-sac."

  Online Exclusive: Letter: The limits of free speechPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

As a Canadian, I am thankful for the rights and freedoms enshrined in our constitution, including freedom of speech. Many countries, governments and private or semi-public institutions engage in tactics aimed at curtailing the rights and freedoms of others. Along with those rights come responsibilities and limits that come out of consideration of the rights and safety of other individuals, or the collective good.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

By now, professor Flanagan's comments on the CBC have achieved infamy and offended citizens across this country. More importantly, they have sullied the name of our university. Flanagan's joke or call [about] Julian Assange was serious. As he will soon discover, it is a criminal offence to incite violence.

[Re: New community radio station focuses on community content, Nov. 4 by Andy Williams]

While I am encouraged that another radio club has been established by a dedicated group of music hobbyists in a garage in SE Calgary to have some fun playing commercially released songs that XL Radio might not be playing this month, I do take issue with writer Andy Williams's failure to do some more in-depth research about Beaver FM.

  Letter: Troubles with new, new atheismPDF files may take a moment to load

Brandon Beasley's column on "The poverty of New Atheism" [Sept. 30] slammed us for not coming up with a "viable, fulfilling worldview." Of course we haven't! Atheism just means you do not believe in a god or gods. Period, end of sentence. Secular Humanists, devout Jains and even some Hindus can all call themselves atheist. If you want a viable worldview from a simple label, you likely expect your toaster to drive you to work.

  Letter: That Empty Space is StrugglingPDF files may take a moment to load

1) That Empty Space now has one event per month as opposed to previous weekly events, removing a popular community space.

2) There are no longer comfy couches, changing the organic, natural, community space that was previously welcoming for everyone at the events.

3) That Empty Space used to support local, Calgary music. Bigger acts from outside the city have been mandated and that costs significantly more than previous events
