This year, the university is eyeing a 7.5 per cent increase in tuition, and if the government does not continue to fund last year's tuition increase, both increases will be felt in the course of one year. It is important students make it clear to both the university administration and the government that such an increase is unacceptable.

The Alberta government is currently reviewing the entire post-secondary education system. It is essential that you provide input, informing the government about what results you would like to see come out of the review. Need some motivation? Consider this; Alberta has the second highest average undergraduate tuition in Canada. Chronic underfunding from the government has resulted in tuition increases totalling 298.44 per cent since 1990-1991, by far the highest percentage increases in Canada.

The precise moment Bermuda Shorts Day was conceived is obscured in the mists of suds, but on Apr. 15, the biggest party on campus happens. It's likely the 45th annual BSD blowout, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on the timing. We may be challenged on the day, but we're definitely not challenged when it comes to still bringing on the good times.

As I walked into the Students' Union on Dec. 17 of last year, I had no idea of the bombshell that awaited me taped to the door of my office. It was an enlarged, laminated article from the Calgary Herald entitled "Klein Vows to Make Education Priority"; it came complete with a nice red bow.

  Reflections on Dec 6, 2004PDF files may take a moment to load

And so their dreams, and hopes have been buried for fifteen years, voices and laughter abruptly silenced that fateful day. Tears and grief from loved ones carry on as reminders of what could have and what should have been. December 6, 2004 marks the fifteenth anniversary of the Montreal massacre that saw the lives of 14 talented and remarkable young women cut short, by a deranged individual set out on a quest to destroy lives and the progression of our society.
