We know which countries produce the most Winter Olympic medals. But which colleges produce the most Olympians?

When it comes to foreign colleges, the University of Calgary is the gold medalist. The Western Canadian school—which benefits from its proximity to the Olympic Oval, a world-class speed-skating facility—has at least 20 current or former athletes in this year's Games.

Justice in Mayerthorpe still missing

On the fifth anniversary of the Mayerthorpe massacre of four RCMP officers, University of Calgary Law professor Peter Bowal argues that the 15 and 12-year sentences given to the two men who helped killer James Roszko get back to his farm before the tragedy are far too harsh. "A just society cannot rest while anyone is treated in disproportion to his culpability," writes Bowal. "Justice has not yet come to Mayerthorpe."
