  On riding bikesPDF files may take a moment to load

It is very early morning, and because mornings have recently been robbed of an hour of daylight, I am biking in darkness. Up ahead is a tunnel, a nexus of sorts.

I enter the tunnel leaving behind a tranquil neighborhood and emerge into the bright lights of downtown Calgary.

  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.
