  • There’s nothing magical about TERFs

    J.K. Rowling has a responsibility to do better, especially since her most famous novels are intended for young readers and preach ideas of love and acceptance. 

  • Is the ‘left’ always right?

    It’s almost impossible to scroll through Twitter or even strike up a conversation without some mention of politics.

  • Prejudice in ‘the media’

    Years ago, I noticed a shift when I transitioned from working in sports media to writing daily news. I adjusted my tone and spent different hours in the office, but the most striking change happened on Tinder.

  • It’s a team effort

    I remember looking at my phone and scoffing, in mild disbelief, when my Instagram feed suddenly filled with posts about the NBA suspending their season after a player tested positive for the novel coronavirus. That was back in March, and now, sports as we knew them no longer exist.

  • Let her speak

    With most professional and amateur sports leagues around the world on hiatus amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the Olympics postponed until 2021, it can seem like sports have been reduced to reruns, along with the “see 10, do 10” push-up chain and toilet paper challenge attempts athletes post on Instagram.

  • Stability could help cure my insomnia

    I woke up this morning before sunrise, feeling well-rested and ready to start my day. It’s a rare experience.

  • Far from a slam dunk

    In the weeks since former NBA star Kobe Bryant’s untimely death in a helicopter crash, it’s been nearly impossible to browse the internet without seeing tributes to the 41-year-old basketball legend.

  • Targeting ads

    I see them when I scroll through Instagram or press “play” on another YouTube video. I hear them during podcast commercial breaks and then, occasionally, again, echoing in the back of my mind when I skip a workout or reach for another handful of chips.

  • Collective healing

    I requested Chanel Miller’s book from the Millennium Library minutes after I read a news article revealing both her name and the work’s release. Her memoir was quite literally the next chapter following years of media coverage that referred to her only as “Emily Doe” or, in other cases, as “Brock Turner’s victim.”

  • Signed, sealed, delivered

    For the past few years, I’ve made near-monthly pilgrimages to Tiny Feast, a stationery store tucked into Winnipeg’s Exchange District.

  • More than my career

    I tried to update my Instagram bio recently and didn’t know what to write. It’s hardly a new problem. Twitter, Facebook, Tinder, the LinkedIn profile I glanced at once – I’m never really sure what to say, how to describe myself. Even coming up with the two-line description at the end of this article took longer than I’d like to admit. 

  • Two minutes for interference

    Another hockey season is underway, and, at least for the Winnipeg Jets, this year seems to be fraught with more drama than the last.

  • ‘Deeper than knives’

    I was 12 years old when a man leaned across the cab of his red pickup truck to yell something I couldn’t quite make out. I might not be able to specify what he said, but I remember the way he slowed down in the middle of St. Mary’s Road to leer at me.

  • Don’t brush off these 280 characters

    Earlier this year, the provincial government launched a campaign to try and attract nurses to Manitoba.

  • Wax on, wax off

    Last month, I paid a stranger to rip hair off my body. At least, that’s what I told my partner when he asked what I did that day.

  • Solidarity in solitude

    In Winnipeg, we wear our winters as a badge of honour.
