CEGEP R-Scores

By Simon Kidd 

While opening my locker, the R-scores came back. It began as a murmur, which rose to frantic whispering, and then to screams of jubilation, jealousy, and pain–all within a single moment. The R-scores returned, but not with its usual vengeance. A warm blanket of optimism immediately swept through the school, which was great on a surface level…but the implications of the change had not fully set in. Continue reading CEGEP R-Scores

Edited by Simon Kidd 

On October 31st, as I was on my way home, I witnessed a grown man pass the STM tolls wearing a full face mask. No one stopped him, no one bothered to tell him he should take it off, and no one even cared to identify him. Mind you, there’s no reason to feel intimidated; masks are worn simply in the spirit of Halloween. What is scary about this scenario is that, on any other day, a woman could be refused entrance to the metro for simply expressing her culture and religious beliefs… Continue reading Unveiling the Implications of Bill 62

By Abby Shine

On October 23, Hillary Clinton visited Montreal to promote the release of her new book “What Happened.” The event, which I luckily had the opportunity to attend, took place at the Palais des Congrès.

The event began with Mrs. Clinton opening with a few remarks. Her speech mainly dealt with the idea of gender inequality within the realm of politics. When men gain power, they gain respect. The opposite occurs with women. It seems as though the more power they get, the more negative traits (aggressive, bossy, annoying, etc.) they begin to be associated with… Continue reading Hillary Clinton in Montreal: The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth

Edited by Simon Kidd

You can know someone without really knowing them. You go to school with them every day, pass them in the halls and yet have no idea what goes on in their lives outside of the Marianopolis campus. Despite being in a tightly-knit program, I realized that I don’t really know the people I spend most of my days with. I had the chance to sit down with a fellow classmate to ask him about his involvement in the Sports Études Program. Continue reading “The IMPACT of Sports Études” with Tristano Fasulo
