  Canada's student leaderPDF files may take a moment to load

"I'm a National Director, not a Chair," Mark Kissel said to the Students' Legislative Council on Tuesday.

Kissel, National Director of the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations, was updating the University of Calgary Students' Union on CASA's plans for the upcoming months. Kissel lobbies on behalf of over 300,000 post secondary students in Canada. His one-year term as National Director began with a self-described "baptism by fire" earlier this year.

In Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing, we are made witness to a community bursting with racial tension--tension that eventually erupts into a mass riot where several racial groups become the targets of violence. In spite of this event, two characters from opposing races meet in the aftermath to discuss and expose their anger and bitterness towards one another. The tensions still exist but there is redemption in the characters' ability to confront them through words and reason.
