  • The curtains are up, and there’s no place to hide

  • PCs just keep failing on healthcare

    On Wednesday, Jan. 19, Manitoba’s task force on the growing backlog of surgeries and diagnostic tests announced their plans to address this crisis. While it’s good that something is being done, it’s important to remember that this is a mess made by this government’s yearslong assault on healthcare.

  • Courage can move a mountain

    Nature is a source of inspiration for artists across various creative disciplines. For singer-songwriter and violinist Raine Hamilton, their passion for music combined with their admiration for mountains and land formations ultimately drove them to create the studio album Brave Land.

  • Lessons from history

    Hello again, readers. Do you remember how excited we were to be back in print? Back on Dec. 4, when we released our special Uniter 30 issue, we were thrilled to be back in print after a long pandemic’s worth of online-exclusive publishing.

    Well, that didn’t last very long.

    Winnipeg – particularly in the urban areas – is rife with street art, from stickers to murals and beyond.

Posters are modified with robot heads, and the lost character from Where’s Waldo can be found repeatedly in different iterations.
