“Scott Price’s story in the Uniter Oct 31 “Does Manitoba Have a Dirty Hydro Problem?” is poorly researched and unfairly insults Manitoba Hydro.
I am a male feminist… Is this possible? After reading “The enlightened sexist” by Carlen Jupiter, it would appear not. However, Bell Hooks’s book The Will to Change argues men can be involved in eradicating patriarchy.
There are many biased claims made in the article “Former employees speak out on Global College.” However, I will simply respond to Mr. Garcia’s statement that “working at the Global College and being part of the Human Rights Program has made me question its validity,” as well as his comment, “there is no real leadership demonstrated… (and) no long-term planning.”
I spent more than two hours in two telephone conversations giving information and contact names to your reporter prior to her completion of her article.

I have been attending the University of Winnipeg as an international student for just over two years, and in those two years, I’ve been an avid reader of The Uniter.

It has been at least three weeks since the weekly sudoku puzzle was replaced with a massive advertisement.
In response to this article, there are several clarifications that should be made.
Sonya Howard’s article regarding David Matas’s work on organ harvesting in China was not an accurate portrayal of David Matas, the “Human Rights crusader.” The article’s starry-eyed praise for the man should be taken with a grain of salt.
I wish to contextualize a comment in this article where I was quoted as believing Youth for Christ is reminiscent of the Indian Residential Schools (IRS).
Katerina Tefft’s scolding of procreation is unfounded in demographics, statistics and facts.
Katerina Tefft is correct that deciding not to procreate is an excellent way one can reduce the taxing impact humans have upon the biosphere. But why stop there? An even more important way one can save the environment is to end their own life.
Aside from the considerable amount of personal offense I have taken to this article as it targets me, my faith and my family, my anger and frustration go much further as the faults found within this article are unending.
