Somewhat unintentionally, there’s a bit of a theme going through the issue this week.
Another campus-based newspaper, The Manitoban was in the news recently as a University of Manitoba Students’ Union councillor introduced – and then withdrew – a motion that would challenge the student levy funding the paper’s operations.
In these pages, we do our best to tell the stories that aren’t being told in other venues, but sometimes these stories need to move beyond the page. And in the coming weeks, we’ve got two events that hope to do just that.
We’re a little over halfway through the production year, but we’re not slowing down any.
After a little December break, we’re back in action with a very colourful issue for you.
In tallying the votes for this issue, one of the greatest joys and greatest challenges is going through all the reader submissions
This issue is for you, and by you, according to readers’ votes.
This week’s paper is our last regular issue of the year, but we’re already hard at work on a special treat for you next week.
On Nov. 22, along with QPOC Winnipeg and Black Space Winnipeg, we'll be hosting the first Uniter Speakers Series event of this season.
It’s hard to believe we’re three-quarters of the way through what we call “fall” already.
Sometimes it can feel like the word “community” is used so much that it’s become a feel-good buzzword.
On Nov. 30, we’ll celebrate your favourite people, places and things, but first, we need your votes to determine the winners!
Like many others on campus, we took a week off from our usual routine. But we’re back to producing The Uniter on a weekly basis again, with a few extra flourishes.
One of our goals with The Uniter is to start conversations that aren’t happening in other publications, and to tell stories that open up new spaces for learning and discovery.
Who runs the news?
We’re beginning our new rotation of columnists, and I look forward to sharing their first pieces over the next four weeks.
Early September’s a busy time, on campus and off. Around the U of W, halls are more crowded, bookstore lineups stretch out longer, and pudding seems to be flying off the shelves in Riddell Hall.
We’re back for another amazing year at The Uniter - it’s our 72nd, if you’re counting human or newspaper years, and our 14th, if you’re counting dog years. This is our annual back-to-school issue, so we thought we’d go for a lighter-hearted, upbeat cover story.
When it comes to summer festivals, we have an abundance of choice here in Manitoba.
This, our last regular-ish paper of the year, is somewhat unconventional.
