Editorial: Looking up to Big Brother

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

Sometimes being Canadian can feel quite nice, especially when the United States make a particularly blunderous mistake. This feeling of national superiority has run strong in the past few weeks as more information on America’s insidiously named Prism program continues to come to light. For those of you who have been too distracted by flooding… Continue reading Editorial: Looking up to Big Brother

Letter: editorial gone too far

By Austin Thompson

[Re: “We need feminism, not ‘the D’, ” Mar. 14, 2013] 
 The Gauntlet’s editorial story on March 28 titled “We need feminism, not ‘the D’, ” paints the feminist movement on campus with extremism. This article should have been two separate articles — one about the rape in Steubenville, Ohio and another about the… Continue reading Letter: editorial gone too far

Editorial: Canada exporting terror

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

Gun violence in the United States has spun out of control. Last July we witnessed a man enter an Aurora, Colorado theatre wearing a gas mask, a load-bearing vest, a ballistic helmet and bullet-proof leggings. He was armed with grenades, a 12-gauge shotgun, a semi-automatic rifle and a handgun. Seventy people were wounded after he… Continue reading Editorial: Canada exporting terror

Editorial: The end of days is nigh!

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

This whole 2012 apocalypse thing is just plain stupid. It’s a waste of time and if anyone actually spends their time thinking about it, it’s because they’re fatalistic, whiny babies.
 There will always be a doomsday theory. There was Y2K that didn’t quite pan out, and the hype behind it was insane. But guess what… Continue reading Editorial: The end of days is nigh!

Editorial: Vote splitting dooms Calgary Centre

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

By 10:45 p.m. on Nov. 26, a palpable sense of profound disappointment was setting in at the Liberal headquarters of the Calgary Centre by-election. Calgary Centre, a riding that has been conservative for almost half a century, will be blue once again.

Editorial: Anti-homosexuality bill sparks culture war

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

As a “Christmas gift” to its citizens, the Ugandan Parliament hopes to pass a bill this December legislating the death penalty for homosexual people. The bill, also known as the “kill the gays” bill, was first introduced in 2009 by Ugandan Member of Parliament David Bahati. When confronted with the possibility of being cut off… Continue reading Editorial: Anti-homosexuality bill sparks culture war

Editorial: Calgary needs Nenshi

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

On Nov. 7, Calgary’s beloved mayor, Naheed Nenshi, announced he will be running for re-election in 2013. This news was not surprising, as Nenshi now seems to be as much a part of Calgary as cowboy hats and urban sprawl. With his approval ratings currently at an impressive 88 per cent, and high-profile candidates, including… Continue reading Editorial: Calgary needs Nenshi

Editorial: Barack for round two

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

To some, American presidential election night is like a Christmas that only comes every four years — others simply don’t care. Despite how people feel about the elections, the whole thing is thankfully over. American President Barack Obama was re-elected to a second term on Nov. 6, 2012, with the Democrats in control of the… Continue reading Editorial: Barack for round two

Editorial: Make this stache count

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

Mothers, hide your daughters. For the next month, there will be an abundance of moustaches — some distinguished and some absolutely grotesque — emerging from the upper lips of many ordinarily clean-shaven men all over the country and the world. Pretty soon, many men will start to look like extras from a ’70s cop drama… Continue reading Editorial: Make this stache count

Editorial: When enough is enough

By Gauntlet Editorial Board

Seasons change, cabinets shuffle and federal Conservative Member of Parliament Rob Anders misplaces the half-dozen or so brain cells left in his possession long enough to embarrass himself in public. It’s an almost soothing rhythm in Canadian political life. 
 Devoting another editorial to Rob Anders may seem like picking scabs, but lately it feels… Continue reading Editorial: When enough is enough
