Letter from the editor

Originally published in Volume 150 Issue 5 of the Dalhousie Gazette on Nov. 3, 2017. The Dalhousie Gazette team works hard. As the Editor-in-chief this year, I couldn’t be more proud of my Editor’s and their dedication to this paper. It’s a “campus paper.” It’s “student news.” But they show up each week—with fresh ideas.

Reply to Haiven and Zayid

Professor Larry Haiven of Saint Mary’s and retired Professor Zayid take aim at our article that appeared in the March 08 issue of the Gazette.

RE: The neglect of etiquette

I was sincerely alarmed to read of the charges against myself and fellow student Mary MacDonald during the rebuttal to our article where we dissented and disagreed with theories put forth by Dr Amal Ghazal as presented in her lecture on “History of Zionism, and The Age of Colonialism.” Students against Israeli Apartheid characterized a…
