Opinion: Alberta can't afford not to fund U of A master's program in gender studies
Edmonton and many other cities, as well as other levels of government around the world, flew the rainbow flag in honour of LGBTQ athletes whose welcome at the recent Sochi Winter Olympics was in doubt.

Opinion: For sheer passion, the puck stops here
They all have great hockey names — Johnny Lazo, Jesse Craige, Sean Ringrose, Jordan Hickmott and Ian Barteaux, to name a few of the University of Alberta Golden Bears hockey team. In fact, I could name every single one. They remind me of the Montreal Canadiens in the late 1950s and the 1960s. When I was growing up in Montreal, there was a sense a magic surrounding these players: Maurice “the Rocket” Richard, Henri “the Pocket Rocket” Richard, Jean “le grand Bill” Béliveau, Doug Harvey, Dickie Moore, Bernard “Boom Boom” Geoffrion, Jacques Plante, Jacques Laperrière. The magic came from the dignity of these players: above all, they played with passion, for the sheer love of the game rather than money or fame. Certainly for their community and city, Montreal, whether they spoke French or English. But above all, with a genuine passion for the game.
