LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Byron can’t let go

Re: "A disingenuous debate" by Max Silverman (26.1.10) Max Silverman is woefully misinformed as to the terms of the debate over health care here in the United States - as are most Canadians. While it might feel good to sneer about the American system of government being beholden to "corporate interests" (especially in the wake of the Citizens United case), can we all adopt a little nuance here and recognize that corporations have a spectrum of competing interests, not all of which align in perfect lockstep unison? The truth about the health care debate is that the insurance companies and HMOs were relatively cooperative early in the debate over health care reform.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Oh Ricky you’re so fine

Re: "That evaluation you requested" by Ricky Kreitner (19.01.10) Yes, Ricky, the world is that simple. Professors are desperately hanging on to the words of students so that they can "cater to [your] petty whims."

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Not AMUSEd

In last week's editorial, you stated that AMUSE - The Association of McGill University Support Employees - left some students "in the dark" by failing to adequately contact all potential voters.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Brendan is simple-minded

Brendan Steven's column "Right Minded: Defending Prorogation" is a good example of the limited nature of Steven's political opinions. His blind reverence for everything the Harper government does is demonstrative of the same sort of extremeness that he attempts to delegitimize in his column.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

An open letter to Students' Society Vice-President University Affairs Rebecca Dooley by former student Senator Nick Wolf regarding his resignation. Dear Ms. Dooley, I would be less hesitant to bring my resignation to SSMU if I were not afraid of what SSMU would do with my vacant seat.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: PGSS Council sounds fun

Re: "Letter to the editor: Can we go too?" by Matthew Hodgetts (24.11.09) Regarding whether the PGSS Executive has a firm foundation upon which to base reforms to the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS), here are a few examples illustrating that the PGSS does, in fact, practice the democratic basics on our home turf.
