  • Living My Imagination Out Loud: What ‘Gypsy’ Meant to Me

    It’s hard to know what to write about my experience with MTP’s production of Gypsy. For those of you who don’t know, I spent a portion of the last few months rehearsing for a part in the show and just finished a seven show run at the Palace Theatre. I find myself struggling to articulate […]

  • Thank God I Miss You

    I’m still one of those people who buys full albums. Many people have moved towards buying ‘singles’ and I guess that I can understand why. Some of the huge pop records that get churned out of the major labels these days seem to feature a couple of radio-ready hits and then not a whole lot […]

  • What the Candidates Can’t Say

  • Somewhere Not Far From Here

    Three years ago a man named Harry Papah told me that no matter where I was in the world Fort Hope would always be somewhere not far from here. At the time I didn’t understand what he meant. I had just finished a two month stint as a literacy camp councillor on the fly-in-only reserve of Eabametoong […]

  • A Campus that Cares

    There is something decidedly different about Western this year. I say this with some degree of caution because it is impossible for me to know whether this sense of difference is related to a change in Western or merely the result of a change in who I am. I think there is something universal about […]
