  • Circle Heads

    Lighthearted and honest, Circle Heads follows a twenty-something-year-old meandering through adulthood while she tries to find humour in the banality and randomness of life.

  • The Creeps

    A feel-good comic about two unnamed characters and their delightful journeys through universally hilarious themes like hatred, misery, uncontrollable rage, disease and rash, delusion, agoraphobia, paranoia, jealousy, greed, bitterness, binge eating, slothfulness, and death, lots and lots of death; also, deformity, flatulence, boogers, nosebleeds, bowel movements, and the eating of unappetizing things.

  • Fashion Streeter

    The Uniter Fashion Streeter is an ongoing documentation of creative fashion in Winnipeg inspired by the Helsinki fashion blog www.hel-looks.com. Each issue will feature a new look from our city’s streets and bars in an attempt to encourage individual expression and celebrate that you are really, really good looking.

  • City Ugly?

    The now notorious Facebook group, ‘People Of Winnipeg’ is stirring gales of controversy over photos of Winnipeggers taken on city streets. Many derogatory and racist comments are included on the Facebook page, attached to images of disabled and homeless residents.

  • Meet your mayoral candidates: David Sanders

    He was a political insider for most of his professional career with the provincial government, but when it comes to municipal politics, David Sanders feels pushed out. 

  • Perfect youth

    Everyday, police are out searching for runaways - boys and girls who flee from their homes for days at a time. The story of Tina Fontaine, a runaway who was reported missing and later found dead in the Red River, is a tragic reminder of the urgency of finding these children.

  • Print resurrection

    For several years, newspaper circulation in Canada has been declining. Increasing competition for advertising revenue combined with new mobile platforms and websites have caused print newspapers to reduce staff and diminish print schedules.

  • The metamorphosis

    If only every university project turned out as successfully as Cockroach Zine.

  • Pack your books and your camera and go study abroad

    The idea of studying abroad can seem very intimidating. Moving to a new country reminds me of the first day of kindergarten, where you are entering a new environment and you have no idea how you will react to it or how it will react to you. 

  • Workinonit

    It’s barely 5 a.m., but the commercial kitchen’s already filled with the aromas of frying dough and melted chocolate.

  • The Drop

    Perhaps the most talked-about attribute of The Drop is that it marks the final screen appearance of actor James Gandolfini, who passed away last year. The movie is a fitting send-off, but it’s much more than that. This modest little crime drama from Belgian director Michaël R. Roskam is maybe the first great film of the fall movie season.

  • Playtime

    Have you ever watched a classic movie, one of those universally-beloved films considered part of the pantheon of cinema, and thought to yourself, “Am I missing something?” 

  • Call of the wild

    Winnipeg folk-pop musician Christine Fellows can now add the role of poet to her resume.

  • Catching up with student president Rorie Mcleod Arnould

    The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association (UWSA) is buzzing with upcoming activities and initiatives designed to make campus a brighter, friendlier place, while maintaining its core directive of being a strong advocate for the student body.

  • Our city, our women, our sexual violence

    On Sept. 1, 2014 two women contacted the Winnipeg Police Service to report being sexually assaulted.

  • Drag me to Fringe

    Mike Delamont is pretty down to earth for someone renowned for portraying a deity.

  • From dancing to directing

    After years spent performing with Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers, Lise McMillan is finally bringing her own voice to the stage.

  • Death from Above 1979

    How The Physical World is approached should be prefaced by the notion that it’s hard to pinpoint whether interest in this album is fuelled by nostalgia, or relevance for the first new DFA 1979 songs since the release of the Toronto duo’s lone LP, You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine.


    This one plays at my love of ‘90s noise-pop (think anything Lou Barlow did or Sub Pop released) and comes from local longhairs David Dobbs (vox/guitar) and Matthew Powers (drums).

  • Ghost vvorld

    2014 has been a big year for Alvvays. The Toronto-by-way-of-Cape-Breton band’s self-titled debut, released in July, has been praised by such media outlets as Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and Pitchfork.

  • Dust off your dress

    Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (WSO) music director/conductor Alexander Mickelthwate is pretty jazzed about kicking off symphony season in Winnipeg.

  • Still breathing but barely

    Summer makes Winnipeg worthwhile. We emerge from our homes, squinting, tentatively shedding layers. Never fully trusting Old Man Winter won’t come crawling back if we let our guard down.

  • Whose House? Jeremy’s House

    Although hardcore punk quintet Comeback Kid was formed in Winnipeg in 2000, only guitarist Jeremy Hiebert and bassist Ron Friesen continue to call the city home. The band, which released its fifth full-length record Die Knowing in March, only features two original band members in Hiebert, and vocalist Andrew Neufeld.

  • Student Streeter

    As of September 5, 2014, Pangea's Kitchen in Riddell Hall now sells beer. We spoke to some individuals and got their opinion on having a watering hole so close class.
