Editor’s Note: In an opinion article published in The Gateway’s September 18, 2013 issue titled “Karen Leibovici’s race for mayor a conflict of interest,” the article stated that The Medicine Shoppe, an Edmonton-based pharmacy business, is a business owned by Katz Group Canada Inc.
In actuality, the Katz Group agreed to sell this pharmacy franchise to the McKesson Corporation in January, 2012. The Gateway takes full responsibility for the misinformation that was published in this issue and truly apologizes for any confusion it may have caused. In actuality, there is no direct connection between Edmonton mayoral candidate Karen Leibovici and Katz Group Canada Inc.
This publication will use greater care in the future to ensure such regrettable mistakes do not occur again and promise to publish stories at the quality expected of a student newspaper at the University of Alberta.
I depend on this brownie recipe whenever I feel the need for a warm, chocolatey hug. It’s also good for family dinners, midnight snacks and for procrastinating during exam season.
With the end of elections finally in sight, we sat a few of The Gateway‘s poster “experts” down to find out their thoughts on the offerings from each executive race this year. It’s one of the few times that past experiences and speeches don’t matter — only font choices and colour schemes.
Students’ Union elections are a bewildering world for the average student to make sense of, and when faced with a whopping 20 candidates vying for six positions, this year’s voters are swamped with selection and craving guidance. That’s why The Gateway’s Election Dissection united three SU experts to cut through the clutter and bring you the inside scoop.
With two days to go until polls open, all 20 Students’ Union executive candidates were on hand to pitch their platforms and face audience questions at Monday’s forum in the Myer Horowitz theatre.
