  Online Only - Letter: Open letter to the president of the university and the president of Campus Pro-LifePDF files may take a moment to load

As a former graduate of the University of Calgary I am mortified in view of the action being taken against the pro-life group on campus.

In 1985, my graduation year, I could not have imagined the oppressive intimidation tactics that would be used today on a group that simply aims to defend the inalienable right to life. Is this the same university that has touted for many years the axiom of free speech?

  Letter: An open letter to President Harvey WeingartenPDF files may take a moment to load

I had the privilege of attending the University of Calgary for four years in the early 1990s. During my time there, I was also privileged to be part of the university track and field team. I have fond memories of my years at the university and was sad when they were over.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

In the piece called "This Hour has 22 Stereotypes" [Labiba Majeed, Nov. 20, Gauntlet] the author writes something to the effect that the show This Hour has 22 Minutes makes fun of visible minorities and maybe should be banned. Of course, one could argue that banning things, in particular satires, is not the best way to promote tolerance, but let's leave that for another time.

  Letter: Incorrect about correctionsPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

As the communications advisor for the Union of Canadian Correctional Officers, I read your opinion piece, ["Death in the penitentiary," Kathryn Aedy, Nov.13, Gauntlet] with interest. Kathryn Aedy raised many issues that plague Canada's correctional service and are a daily preoccupation for the men and women who work on the frontlines as correctional officers.

  Letter: not a pastafarianPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Hilarious, that half-page spread about the Flying Spaghetti Monster provided by your News Editor last week. But what a pity she couldn't find equal space (any space) for the submission by Amnesty International (UC) that took place at the same SU meeting.

Could it be that she thinks that the screaming of the tortured, the despair of the wrongfully imprisoned and an appeal to students' idealism do not concern your readers as much as that time-wasting absurd spaghetti fantasy?
