Open Space: Logic must always prevail

November 15, 2017 by Jayden Grieve, contributing writer  
Filed under November 15, 2017, Views

In an argument, a participant puts forward evidence as proof of their point. In theory. Today, many arguments are made poorly, appearing as a Swiss cheese of logical fallacies. Some, like an ad hominem argument—aimed to discredit the arguer and not their points—are put forward maliciously in an attempt to win the argument through chicanery, […]

Fire hits Interurban: Our November 16, 1992 issue had a story about a fire that destroyed the carpentry shop in Interurban’s Drysdale Building. The fire happened in the early morning hours of Wednesday, November 4, and, unfortunately, firefighters didn’t get to the scene as quickly as they could have, as the alarm that went off […]

Evans’ re-election dreams shot down: Looks like the ongoing saga of impeached Camosun College Student Society (CCSS) director of campus communications Eugene Evans ends here: our November 2, 1992 issue reported on the CCSS election in which Evans was running to get re-elected into the position he had been recently impeached from; Evans didn’t get […]

Open Space: Students can benefit from driving

Public transportation in Victoria is decent, but life is way easier for students once they get a car. Transit here is better than it is in many small towns all over Canada, where there might only be one dilapidated 1960s bus running from 8 am to 5 pm, but it has a long way to […]

Levi Guy’s romance continues: If you’ve been reading this column for the past few issues, you know all about the Levi Guy romance (if not, head over to nexusnewspaper.com and scan our last few issues to figure out what we’re talking about). I’m very happy to report that the meeting in the caf was a […]

Open Space: Don’t let paranoia ruin Halloween

October 18, 2017 by Adam Boyle, staff writer

Remember Halloween? It was that holiday that every kid looked forward to because they wanted candy; it was the holiday that every parent looked forward to because dressing your kid up and taking them trick-or-treating was fun. So when did we as a society become so paranoid and lazy? I live in a historically busy […]

Open Space: Camosun needs to abolish its registration deposit

October 4, 2017 by Quinn Hiebert, contributing writer

As I pondered what bills I shouldn’t pay this month in order to pay Camosun’s $175 registration deposit—which is $1,000 for international students—I wondered why students have to pay a deposit at all. In terms of fees, it’s relatively small—some might even say unimportant. But to the hopeful and financially destitute student, Camosun might as […]

You should have seen the men’s: Our October 5, 1992 issue had a letter from Camosun student Shelley Evans bemoaning the state of the women’s bathrooms. “Rolls of toilet tissue were strewn haphazardly over the floor leaving nothing resembling paper to be had… The counters were thick with floating debris and dripping onto a sopping […]

Open Space: Dimensions of North Korean threat grossly misinterpreted

September 20, 2017 by Aaron Stefik, contributing writer  
Filed under September 20, 2017, Views

Much has been written and said about the international crisis which at current looms large over the Korean peninsula, greater Southeast Asia, and, indeed, the world, and much more will have been said before this editorial even reaches print. Most of it will be inaccurate, or at the very least, reinterpreted beyond all real meaning. […]

The Levi Guy strikes back:  Last time around in this column, we talked about a classified ad that had been placed by someone looking for the dude in “tight Levis” who had lent the writer, who went by the name of L.B., some money at the college. Much to our delight, The Levi Guy responded […]
