My recent interview with Cowboy Junkies bassist Alan Anton began badly. But in the easygoing way common to all bassists I’ve met, Anton didn’t seem fazed. In fact, he was so laid back it was like having a conversation while one of their songs is playing. Can’t be done. As Anton deadpanned his answers, I […]

You know when you go into a store and you want to like it, but can’t? You give it more chances than a misbehaved puppy, but still nothing. The store has poor customer service, or they never have your size left, and you just can’t like it, no matter how hard you try? This is […]

After, or during, an opera, singers receive applause from the audience; however, there are many people who work very hard for the show that the audience doesn’t see.

Pass it on: responsible media coverage of suicide

As a kid one of my favorite group games was Pass It On. How exciting it was to pass a message along from between carefully cupped hands (to keep anyone from overhearing) by whispering it into the ear of the kid next to you, the “rumour” making its way around the circle in moist, tickling […]

It takes no effort to see a pair of crutches or a wheelchair, to mark someone exclusively as a (dis)abled person if they meet our society’s criteria as so, but it’s a painstakingly difficult process to learn to stop categorizing and to begin the journey to look deeper. Imagine a world where we are individuals […]

Camosun student takes bank hostages: So the headline said on page 2 of our April 5, 1993 issue.
