Changing of the political guard

There's a new government leading Canada, headed by the Conservatives' Stephen Harper. What's ahead for Harper in the short term? Veteran SFU political scientist Patrick Smith can look at the impact of a minority Conservative government. For a list of SFU's election experts check the website below. Political science instructor Greg Clarke is teaching a course this semester on the Canadian Constitution and can also look at issues related to the formation of a minority government.

Competition stress

SFU psychologist David Cox is already feeling an adrenaline rush in anticipation of the winter Olympics in Turin, Italy Feb 10-26. The sport psychologist is heading to his third Olympic games, this time to work with Canada's cross-country ski team and members of its ice skating contingent. Cox can talk about the pressures - from taking part in major events such as the opening ceremonies, to concerns about equipment, injuries or weather - and how he helps athletes stay focused.
