“What made you love music?”

“I guess it had always been a way to express my individuality as a person. I've never really just levitated or focused on one certain type or genre. I try to keep myself very open minded to every type of music. Right now, I'm going to a jazz school and I'm preparing myself for a punk show on Friday. I guess it's made me open minded to people too. You can tell a lot about people by the music they listen to.”

“What's the name of your all girl punk band?”

  • Capilano Board of Governors: Its composition, membership and connection to the BC Liberals

    In all institutions with bicameral bodies, meaning two bodies that form a single government, there is usually debate about which one is most important. In BC, universities are governed by two bodies, the Board of Governors (BOG), which is responsible for finance, lands and assets, and the Senate, which oversees academics.

  • Pepsi has the answer to police brutality

    Pepsi’s latest Kendall Jenner-led commercial may have been intended to celebrate diversity, equality and the end of police brutality, but really though, it’s a classic stroke of the broad brush of white supremacy.

While this is at times the case, all dynasties are subject to close calls, and situations where the opposition looks all but certain to form government. This […]
