Guy, I am curious as to why you think Brownlee is a columnist. On this link to the Edmonton Sun there is a list of Sun columnists and he is not included. http://www.fyiedmonton.com/htdocs/generic5.shtml

The article in the Sun contains no new information, in fact Brownlee admits that Lowe and Winter aren't talking to the press and apparently not to each other.

His first sentence "He's just coming back to say goodbye" is idle speculation designed to sell papers. For those of us who actually expect news in the paper it has the opposite effect, we get our news elsewhere. If the public wants speculation this forum is rampant with it, they should throw away the Sun and become forum members.
