Editor, the Gauntlet,

[Re: "A hard sell made harder," Editorial, Sep. 27]

  EMS workers are right to demand increasePDF files may take a moment to load

As Calgary continues to experience a population influx that outpaces the ability of infrastructure to keep up with demand, it would seem that everything possible should be done to make sure that emergency services are affected as little as possible. Unfortunately, this logic is apparently not as straightforward as it should be. At the end of last week, an arbitrator sided with the city in its battle against paramedics seeking wage increases.

  Naomi Klein shocks CalgaryPDF files may take a moment to load

Sold out days before the event, Naomi Klein took to the stage Mon. night to an impressively jam-packed Knox United Church for a pre-WordFest appearance. From the large projector screen hanging in the background to the merch table beside the stage, the buzzing venue looked more like a rock concert than a presentation for her latest book: The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.

  Spun: The Last GoodnightPDF files may take a moment to load

The title and album cover for The Last Goodnight’s latest release, Poison Kiss, suggest that they’re a metal band. Upon a quick listen, they most definitely are not. Previously known as Renata, Poison Kiss is the first album under the band’s new moniker and the Connecticut-based five-piece do their best to make an impression.
