    Who wears the white gloves

    Some of the kindest people you’ll ever meet at a rave will be wearing a pair of white gloves. If you’re polite, they’ll probably give you a light show, a performance where a glover uses …Read More »

    The new 1984

    Fake news is seemingly everywhere. It has been for a long time, but nobody cared about half-truths and little white lies or celebrity gossip until they threatened the establishment. Perhaps it marks a cultural shift …Read More »

"Treat people the way you want to be treated. I've learned it through my 23 years when I started to notice that when I was bad to people they were bad to me and when I was good to people they were good to me. Simple as that."


  • Under the guise of the sad guy

    Over the years, the Capilano Courier, has cultivated a reputation for its colourful Valentine’s Day covers, but none was more memorable than the 2011 edition. The annual special issue featured cover art from then-production manager Shannon Elliott, which depicted a sad guy with tears streaming from his oversized eyes and clutching a rose with the […]Read More »

  • Who You: Rachel and Ashley English

    Rachel and Ashley English are figuratively joined at the hip. The Capilano University Business Administration students are identical twins and best friends. On the pros and cons of being identical, the sisters agree that it has its ups and downs. “What I like is that I always have someone who’s there, a permanent go-to person […]Read More »
  • Who you: Jasleen Kaur

    Capilano University Motion Picture Arts (MOPA) graduate Jasleen Kaur has already started on her way to prosperity. Kaur is currently planning the release of her first major documentary, Maple, which covers the events surrounding the 2011 shooting death of 19-year-old Simon Fraser University student and aspiring actress and model, Maple Batalia.

  • Outlining the problems of animation

    Once again, it appears that Hollywood continues to struggle with what to do about women in the work force. A female who wants to make it as an animator faces the same problem that many women do in other specialized fields: overrepresented in University, but underrepresented in the industry. For some reason, people like to […]Read More »
  • Alternative facts claims Trump administration’s first victims: Conway and Spicer

    Many news outlets sheepishly described the first 72 hours of Trump’s Presidency as “petty”, alluding to Counsellor Kellyanne Conway’s assertion that the administration’s alternative facts discredited media photographs revealing visibly low crowd sizes at the 45th President’s inauguration. CNN’s Bakari Sellers delivered a much more accurate assessment of DJT’s first days in the White House, […]Read More »

  • First Nations first

    First Nations first

    Being a member of Tsleil-Waututh is an honour, at least to my family and I. During my childhood, I never really knew about my culture since we lost most of it with residential schools, but it didn’t stop my people from re-learning our rich traditions. Everything changed when I entered my adolescent years. I come […]
  • Dropping the f-bomb

    Dropping the f-bomb

    On Saturday, Jan. 21, I woke up with a raging headache and a task list a kilometre long. I’m among those Capilano University students who both work and go to school full-time – a product of rising precariousness in the lives of Millennials: housing insecurity, food insecurity, rising cost of living, heavy student debt and […]

    Legislature watch

    With razor-thin poll numbers, very little money in the bank and voter turnout probably set to decline for a third straight election, there isn’t a whole lot to be smiling at for those who want change in this year’s provincial election. Over the past 12 months, articles published in the Vancouver Sun (with anti-NDP endorsing […]

    I can code you the world

    I was helping out at a coding workshop the other day when one of the students came to me saying that her computer wasn’t working properly. Assuming there was something wrong with her code, I got ready for some debugging. To my surprise, however, the problem she had was something I hadn’t seen in quite […]

    Sip, sip, hurray

    It’s been a rough few weeks, especially for our American neighbours. After the overly-aggressive Cheeto Tiny Hands became President of the United States, I know many Americans who’ve become disillusioned, upset and frankly could use a little pick-me-up. My Ohio-born and raised girlfriend, Victoria, was one of those many angry Americans, and today’s food choice […]
