Exile Above New York

The view at night from the roof of my sister’s apartment building in midtown Manhattan is like looking down from one of the higher clouds in heaven at the other angels living out their merry lives below. There are no problems up there, nor does there seem to be any[Read More…]

Registration Not Necessarily Required

As a frequent Internet user, I must comment on something that frustrates me more than getting ready to tackle a room full of unbuilt Ikea furniture only to find out I don’t have a screwdriver: why do I need an account to use nearly every website? Take a moment and[Read More…]

Quebec’s dirty human trafficking secret

McGill Tribune For most people, the term “human trafficking” conjures up images of women spirited in container ships by organized crime, or distant lands where children are sold to sex tourists. It turns out the problem is a lot closer to home. In 2006, a young Montreal woman that I’ll[Read More…]

Readers Are the New Writers

The dissemination of news has always been intertwined with sensationalism and manipulation. There have been sex scandals and inflammatory whodunits since the dawn of the modern newspaper in 16th century Europe and even in the news-like outlets of ancient Rome.

Letter to the Editor: Mobile computing and communications

I was pleased to see the Tribune report on the recently approved guidelines for the use of mobile computing and communications devices (MC2) in classrooms at McGill ("Guidelines proposed for laptop ban," September 21). I would encourage interested students to consult the full document, available on the TLS home page[Read More…]

How to Get Rid of a Campus Group

McGill Tribune 1) Chose a group with an opt-outable funding system (these groups are usually “progressive”, e.g. QPIRG) 2) Coordinate a mass-flyer campaign with a catchy slogan like “save some money” detailing how to opt-out of their fee. 3)  Don’t provide any info about the organization (if you do, it[Read More…]
