Letter to the Editor: Don’t turn a blind eye to Hamas terrorism

The Israel-Palestine conflict invokes sharp and passionate responses from everyone—scholars, religious leaders, and politicians and average citizens. Sadly, many in the West choose to be ever so selective in the facts they relay, and the discourse they construct.

Online reviewers need anonymity

Hannah Madsen, Gateway Writer

The dispute between authors and online book reviewers is escalating: last month, Anne Rice endorsed a petition to remove the anonymity of users on Amazon.com, forcing them to use verified identities when reviewing published materials.

The precarious link between creativity and mental illness

Jee Su Suh, Gateway Writer

If there’s any silver lining to hereditary mental illness, then it may be that it makes one more likely to be a creative genius along the same spectrum as Vonnegut, van Gogh or even Einstein, a recent continuing study has hinted.

Editorial: Safe public drinking is possible — it’s time to revisit liquor laws

Kevin Schenk, Online Editor

Alberta: a province with a hands-off conservative government that hypocritically insists on enforcing a nanny state when it comes to alcohol.

Hannah Madsen, Gateway Writer

Recently, a research study of casual sex in Jasper and Banff came under scrutiny by the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation. Here are three other unusual-sounding research releases.

Students relish and regret the dying days of summer

Should we prepare for fall term, enjoy some last-minute freedom, contemplate the meaning of life? How about all three?

Editorial: Gone the way of The Grid

Kate Black, Managing Editor

Iterations of the phrase “nothing can replace a newspaper” resurface when the journalism industry is in times of trouble. But, the current state of printed publications in Canada is proving the saying wrong.

MacKay’s sexism needs strong rebuke

Minister of justice and attorney general sets poor example with stereotypes

Hannah Madsen, Gateway Writer

Alexander Pope once commented that “to err is human,” and that quotation has been used to justify many social gaffes over the years from politicians who should know better and be more circumspect when they speak.

A Canadian province is undermining education

Shandi Shiach, Opinion Editor

Ontario teachers pledged $1.5 million last month to shore up the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (B.C.T.F.) in its ongoing strike, but they’re not the only ones who should stand up for teachers Canada-wide.

Bashir Mohamed, Gateway Writer

Discussion around the Peter Lougheed Leadership Initiative, a project to benefit top undergraduates, has drawn major criticism over the past school year — criticism that was mitigated when the Students’ Union and the university administration reached points of agreement in February.

Personal morals shouldn’t trump medical needs

Calgary medical doctor who won’t prescribe birth control should consider possible extenuating circumstances of patients

Kwabena Amoh, Gateway Writer

Dr. Chantal Barry of Calgary’s Westglen Medical Centre made controversy on June 27 when it was reported that she wouldn’t be offering birth control to women that came in and asked for it due to her personal moral convictions.

Social issues overshadow the World Cup

David Jones, Gateway Writer

From June 12 to July 14, the world’s eyes will be on Brazil. But unfortunately, not for the right reasons.

Editorial: Pride and tradition lives in Canada
