Food Drive Competition Information *location update*

Christmas is fast approaching and for many of us that means large dinners, parties, and more consumption of sweets than we care to admit. However, there are many Calgarians for whom a full meal is a rarity. The rapid plunge in oil prices has put almost everyone in Alberta on edge, particularly us students, but there are people for whom the fall means more than most of us here can even imagine. Food bank usage is up 20% this year in Alberta, and across the country the number of people using food banks is higher than it was during the Great Recession. More close to home, usage of the University of Calgary’s Campus Food Bank has doubled over the past year alone. It is not only homeless people l

Votes as Voices: The Surprising Similarities between Elections and Economics

Last month in Canada marked a historic election on many fronts: The longest campaign length since 1872, the highest turn out for advanced polls, and the largest overall voter turnout in over two decades. Like many of you, this election marked the first time I got to spread my democratic arms and express my opinion on who I believe is the most competent at running our nation. No matter how you voted, or whether you were elated or devastated by the results, by voting you contributed to the decision making process of this great nation. As I stepped forward, driver’s license in hand, I realized the amazing fact that my voice, along with all those around me, is one that counts in the decision mak
