    On such momentous occasion I propose we change the name of UofA to Queen's University

    Always liked Phair, he comes across more genuine than some of the honourable, esteemed, noted or whatever useless monika some of those in the big halls care to want to stick before or after their names. Is he replacing anyone who got the boot for the Redford endorsement fiasco a few months back?.
    Gone............................and very quickly forgotten may I add.

    He's replacing Doug Goss who resigned after the election. During the election Goss was one of the five businessmen who publicly warned Edmonton not to vote NDP.
