Editorial

  • Media skewing Wet’suwet’en

    “Wet’suwet’en, what do you think about the protesting?” I was asked, the only Indigenous person at a Leap Year fire.

  • Update

    The Uniter is adding the following disclaimer to the March 5, 2020 article “Callouts are the symptom, not the problem:”

  • We still have some growing to do

    In this week’s issue of The Uniter, comments editor Haley Pauls examines the ongoing cultural conversation about “callout culture.” 

  • A note on the editorial process

    Around 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 25, The Uniter received a news tip regarding allegations against current and former members of the UWSA executive, which were published anonymously online. With the help of the entire staff of our city and campus section (city editor Lisa Mizan, city reporter Alex Neufeldt and campus reporter Callum Goulet-Kilgour), we managed to put together as comprehensive an article as we could on the shortest possible notice.

  • More than skin deep

    It’s cold out there, folks. As I write this, there is an extreme cold warning across all of southern Manitoba, including Winnipeg.

  • Learning from history

    “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” That’s one of those many quotes that’s always attributed to Mark Twain, even though there’s no evidence he ever actually said it.

  • A wrong turn

    I don’t know when public attitudes in Winnipeg steered so far into hostile austerity, but it’s a problem that seems to be getting worse rather than better.

  • Let’s talk about fight club!

    Chuck Pahlaniuk’s 1996 novel Fight Club and the 1999 film adaptation by David Fincher offered pointed critiques of toxic masculinity, back before the term “toxic masculinity” had entered the zeitgeist. 

  • Addressing barriers

    We have a disability-heavy issue of The Uniter this week

  • The dildo decade

    So, why put a dildo on the cover of the first Uniter issue of the decade? It’s a good question.

  • You voted, we listened

    This week’s issue of The Uniter is our special themed issue for the Uniter 30! 

  • It’s beginning to look a lot like 1916

    In April of 2018, I wrote a historical article for The Uniter examining the prohibition era in Winnipeg. From 1916 to 1921, the sale and consumption of alcohol was prohibited in Manitoba. Similar legislation was passed throughout Canada and the United States in the 1910s and ’20s, motivated by fears and misconceptions about alcoholism.

  • Riddle me this

    In preparing for this week’s cover feature about development in downtown Winnipeg, we in the editorial staff of The Uniter found ourselves asking, “What is downtown?” 

  • Halfway to Somewhere

    Like many other introverts and book lovers, I have fond memories of public libraries from a young age. 

  • Perogies are a portal

    For folks growing up in diasporic communities, food can be as important as language.

  • Many nations under Brian

    Winnipeg is an international city. From the many ancestral nations of Indigenous Winnipeggers, to the many far-flung countries of origin for settlers, Winnipeg is a meeting place for people from across the globe.

  • The rise of the post-MeToo “comeback”

    Earlier this month, Rumor’s Restaurant and Comedy Club announced plans to book American comedian and actor Louis C.K.

  • Cast another vote. No, another one

    Another month, another election gone by. 

  • 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.

  • Crystal Clear

    With the federal election coming up on Monday, Oct. 21, it’s important to understand how a conservative government would affect people with disabilities and chronic illnesses.
