Revoking its official group status, the University of Calgary Students' Union put a final nail in the coffin of Campus Pro Life. In doing so, the SU has proven that not only does U of C administration have little tolerance for free speech, but neither does the SU.

After experiencing one of the worst defeats in Liberal history, Liberal leader Stephane Dion announced his resignation. Although a new leader may be helpful, the Liberals still find themselves near an abyss of irrelevance.

Dion turned out to be such a weak and ineffective leader, he had no other option than to resign. As a result, the Liberal party faces its third leadership convention in five years.

May 10, 1933, on the Opernplatz in Berlin, the Nazis burnt some 20,000 books from university libraries. This horrific event occurred because the Nazis did not find the books to be in line with their beliefs.

Last week Stephane Dion, soon to be former leader of the Liberal party, got his name into the history books. Unfortunately for him, he will be known as the first ever native-Quebec leader of the Liberal Party not to become Prime Minister.

Some think political attack ads are terrible, but try placing a Liberal lawn sign on your front yard and come morning, someone has destroyed your sign and cut the brake line of your Volvo station wagon. This incident, among others, such as telephone and cable lines being cut and political graffiti carved into automobile paint and homes, were just some of the attacks taking place in a middle class neighborhood in Toronto last week.

Within one year, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has slid from an all-time record high of 14,000 to a horrible 10,000 points. As most Canadians have shifted from the what if, to the how bad will the very probable recession be mindset, all four political parties seem to be stuck in the mud, ignoring the precarious economy.

Although this election has been one of the most boring in recent memory, its outcome may greatly impact the future.

Over the last year, the leader of the Liberals Stephane Dion has created a carbon tax plan entitled Green Shift. At the end of the process, they have presented one of the most involved election platforms in recent history. This Green Shift has become so complicated and complex that even Dion himself struggles to explain the plan.
