  • The Political Class -- Bernier's broad donor base key in Tory race

    The race for the next leader of the federal Conservative party appears to be picking up steam as we inch closer to May 27, when party members finally get the chance to cast their ballots. Financial data compiled by polling analyst Eric Grenier, along with a new Nanos survey gauging Canadians’ views of the race, provides some interesting insights as to the emerging frontrunners in the leadership contest. 

  • Morning Mess -- The BU Bobcat secret

    This weekend will mark the first time in eight years the Brandon University Bobcats basketball team is back in the playoffs. This is not only a huge deal for the players and for the university, but for the fans who have spent much of the winter packed into the Health Living Centre to watch many of the men’s and women’s games — my family being among them. Last month marked four years since the official opening of HLC at BU, and since its opening, the athletic department has worked tirelessly to raise the profile of its volleyball and basketball teams, in the process, working to get more butts in seats at games. And while they’ve done well, I still believe BU athletics is one of the best kept secrets in all of Westman. And it’s because of the fan experience. College sports in Canada is always a challenge when it comes to fan support, no matter what the city, but in Brandon, the seats at HLC should always be full of loud, passionate fans without fail.
