  • CSU to host free screenings of Canadian films on campus

    Canadian content in media and entertainment is being placed on the back burner as more American content makes its way into our country.

    The dust has settled since a recent visit by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, but it has once again brought up the conversation on the status of Canada’s monarchy.

    The unlearned society

    The luxuries of our modern, affluent civilization have engendered a troubling addiction to entertainment, and a disorienting detachment from that ultimate guiding star in our quest for knowledge: survival.

    Oh, the places you’ll know

    With Vancouver’s weather turning cold, dark and grey, I figure you must be in the midst of planning a trip to somewhere equally miserable.
