  • Slow to act?

    After more than three weeks in downtown Ottawa, the so-called Freedom Convoy protest has ended. Police forces from across the country were instrumental in removing the occupiers, but questions remain about why it took so long.

  • Getting active for a good cause

    Virtual 5Ks and other races have become increasingly popular during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ability for runners to socially distance, choose their own locations and participate at their own pace have made them an attractive option for beginners and seasoned runners alike.

  • Perception shift

    “I think we should see other people” used to be nothing more than a somewhat cliché breakup line, but more recently, it seems the phrase has taken on more nuance.

  • Nothing short of violence

    Alarm bells rang in my head as I read a Winnipeg Police Service news release that warned of a “planned demonstration” in the city’s centre and advised people to “avoid the area.” From my third-floor apartment beside the Manitoba Legislative Building, this was easier said than done.

  • CPC at a crossroads

    The past month has been a tumultuous one for Canadian politics. Much of the country has been immobilized by the Freedom Convoy, a series of protests and blockades calling for, among many things, an end to public-health restrictions.

  • Red cross swim program wind down

    Generations of Canadians have also known the Canadian Red Cross through their popular swimming programs, which the organization recently announced would be ending after 76 years.

    This autumn, with COVID-19 cases at a steady low and a permanent residency card in hand, I decided to visit family members and my long-time boyfriend in São Paulo, Brazil. The holiday break seemed like an incredible opportunity to book a trip to my home country.

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

    For many, post-secondary education is a pivotal time in one’s life – a time to make and learn from mistakes without fear of jeopardizing a career.

  • 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.

  • New Year, Same Sh*t

    I was excited to nicely tuck away the “pandemic part” of my life away and go back to “normal.”

  • Hyperempathy is exhausting and beautiful

    A few years ago, I was with my family watching the movie Cast Away for the first time. The main character’s happy ending was crashing down around him, and I was inconsolable.

  • From the campus to the community

    While rising COVID-19 case counts and cold temperatures had many Winnipegers keeping their social circles small during the winter holidays, the University of Winnipeg Students Association (UWSA) and Wii Chiiwaakanak Learning Centre both held community outreach initiatives to spread some support.
