  • Volunteers make it happen

    Next week we’ll take a break from printing a paper, and we’re moving the weekly Uniter party over to uniter.ca for an online-only issue.

  • Chronic relief

    Manitobans currently spend between $300 and $500 million on marijuana annually, and that number is growing. Your across-the-hall neighbour or pizza guy with his baggy of shake may contribute to that total, but recreational marijuana is only a small piece of the puzzle.

  • Whose House? Ferro and Steve’s House.

    It’s a classic punk rock story. Start a band, learn to play your instruments. In that order. For local punk outfit WHIP, it was the way to go, according to vocalist Ferro Bonham and guitarist Steve Krysko.

    Dance is an art form some say almost anyone can appreciate, although it may take time to discover that.

  • Proper practice

    October is sustainability month, and one way to celebrate is with the second annual 20x20 Sustainability Night event.

  • The impact of Canada geese

    The migration habits of Canada Geese within Manitoba are changing, and whether that’s a good or bad thing depends on who you ask.

  • Say heyo to AYO!

    The youth-led initiative Aboriginal Youth Opportunities (AYO!)  focuses on community economic development, exploring Indigenous youth identity and building family in the neighbourhood of Winnipeg’s North End, or what AYO! calls “The Village.”

  • Bonding over English

    Fluent English-speaking volunteers help international students at the University of Winnipeg integrate into their new environments simply by becoming their friends.

  • We Need To Talk

    It’s easy to avoid conversations about sexual assault, and Canadian institutions have been fairly successful in doing just that. Sexual assault is a rampant issue across post-secondary institutions in North America. It doesn’t just happen at large American colleges, despite Canadian post-secondary institutional rhetoric. 

  • To err is to be human

    The City of Winnipeg will take proactive steps to prepare for self-driving vehicles, but there are many reasons to question how great this technology really is.
