He got in without a fight, but no one's going to give him an easy ride.

On Fri., March 8, newly acclaimed Students' Union president-elect Matt Stambaugh took the floor at the presidential forum to explain his plan for next year.

Not surprisingly, Stambaugh's acclamation was a hot topic for debate.

Current Events Commissioner and Senate candidate Oliver Ho asked Stambaugh if he would resign so that a new race for president could be held in a by-election after an awareness-raising campaign.

Re: "Puppets from down under," March 7, 2002,

I was disgusted by the display of full-frontal nudity on the front page of the March 7 issue of Gauntlet. There is a reason why these areas are also referred to as the "private parts." That is because most people, including myself, don't want to see them displayed in public.

UPDATE: Voting has been extended to Monday the 18th. Visit the SU Web site at www.su.ucalgary.ca for details.

  March 11 political, not commemorativePDF files may take a moment to load

Six months. It isn't quite an anniversary, but in the minds of the American public and the rest of world, it's apparently enough of a reason to "commemorate" September 11. The fact of the matter is a six-month span is hardly a period to have a commemoration. In fact, it's hard not to wonder how the commemoration is being used-political or otherwise. This commemoration is not for the victims of the attacks, it's actually for everyone else.
