Rejecting toxic masculinity

Rejecting toxic masculinity

One of the responsibilities I put on myself is to look for opportunities where I can use my gifts and positions of influence to help other people and magnify their stories. However, while writing this editorial, I found that it only felt right to speak to something close to my heart. I have been very fortunate to learn tools from […]

Get him to the Greek restaurant!

In case you missed the most recent renovation in the little building between Phil’s and the King St. residence, there is a new Greek restaurant, Olive Tree, near campus. After getting the most conventional Mediterranean dish (lamb souvlaki) I could think of, I am optimistic that this place can do well by having captured a unique approach the other restaurants […]

Men’s hockey continues strong start by beating York

  Wilfrid Laurier University’s men’s hockey team is off to a strong start this season with a big win last Thursday against York Lions. The 6-2 win over the Lions is an example of the team’s offensive strength. Defensively, goaltender Colin Furlong stood on his head to keep the Golden Hawks ahead despite being outshot 33 to 24.

An unfortunate end to an exciting season

  The Wilfrid Laurier University men’s varsity soccer season came to an unfortunate conclusion this Sunday.  In a match that determined whether or not they would continue into the postseason, the Hawks tied with Brock Badgers 0-0 despite creating scoring chances up until the final whistle.  The audience at University Stadium could hardly go a few minutes without a cheer or exclamation – and rightfully so. The box score was littered with four yellow cards and […]

Golden Hawks make a fast start to the season

P!nk’s Beautiful Trauma makes a disappointing splash

In her latest album, Beautiful Trauma, iTunes advertises P!nk as attaining perfection. Unfortunately, the writers at iTunes music, not the truth. P!nk, to me, represents an underrepresented version of girl power that really resonates. She doesn’t have to be a traditional blonde bombshell to get her message across and to be remembered. She’s strong and outspoken and isn’t afraid to […]

Editorial: Rediscovering a love of hockey

As a long time fan, the new Toronto Maple Leaf team has been a welcome change. I have always been an avid Leaf fan, especially during my hockey career. Mats Sundin, Tie Domi and Bryan McCabe were my idols growing up and I memorized their names and numbers before I could read. My hockey life was filled with bus trips […]
