Re: "Christ makes sense from a marketing standpoint" Oct. 14, 1999

Tyler Shandro makes several assertions that relate to Christians rather than to Christ. These may be true. I will be the first to admit that people can use the Bible and Christianity to suit their own agendas. However, these are the faults of Christians. We are only human, we make mistakes and while I certainly don't condone these, please don't fault God for our mistakes.

Re: "Treaties promote inequality" Oct. 14, 1999

Brian Low's column has several serious flaws and I don't think that they can be overlooked. Let's start with the first sentence: "Do natives deserve special rights?"

Re: "Go back to Atlanta, Stop embarrassing our crappy town," Oct. 14, 1999

I can't believe the way you've slagged our beloved hometown heroes, the Flames.

Maybe Mr. Osentоn doesn't realize that a team worthy of greatness can't be built over night. It takes time and vigilance, not to mention some shrewd behind the scene moves.

  SU President admits to alien implantPDF files may take a moment to load

Calgary-- Recent activities at the University of Calgary have prompted Students' Union President Rob South to deny allegations that point towards his involvement with academic affairs on campus.

"It's a lie, whatever it is," South claimed. " I have nothing to do with anything academic whatsoever. I did not have relations with the master timetable."

  Humanities gets new deanPDF files may take a moment to load

In case you didn't notice, the Faculty of Humanities was without a permanent dean for the last two years. That changed this September with the appointment of Dr. Pierre-Yves Mocquais.

Dr. Mocquais, who received his doctorate from the University of Western Ontario, spent the last 21 years at the University of Regina, first as a professor, then head of the French department, and then associate dean of the Faculty of Arts.

Dr. Mocquais summarizes his job as overseeing the life of the faculty.

University of Calgary students saw mocktails, AADAC and a tuition's worth of beer this week as Alcohol Awareness Week took place.

"Alcohol Awareness Week is a campaign aimed toward students to show them the dangers associated with drinking," said Students' Union Events commissioner Evan Truman. "The goal is to spread awareness that people have to take responsibility for their actions before drinking."

  More redevelopment beginsPDF files may take a moment to load

University of Calgary students faced a partially-boarded food court when they returned to class Monday--the latest phase of MacEwan Hall redevelopment.
"We have two projects going on right now," said Students' Union Vice-president Operations and Finance Amanda Affonso. "One is in the Black Lounge, in the tiled area. A permanent wall is going up and that area will be used for club offices."

  It's time to get past feminism and on to humanismPDF files may take a moment to load

Seventy years ago, five women--Emily Murphy, Nellie McClung, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Louise McKinney and Irene Parlby--fought hard and long for the legal recognition of women as persons in Canada. Seventy years later, not much has changed.

While it's remarkable for the town that puts the "c" in conservative to erect statues at Olympic Plaza in honor of these women, more remarkable is the fact that no one seems to notice the complete lack of social equality in the rest of Calgary and Canada as a whole.
