Letter from the editor

Originally published in Volume 150 Issue 3 of the Dalhousie Gazette on October 6th, 2017. The Gazette office is cozy with six people sitting in it staring at the chalkboard wall. Staff meetings often start this way: we spend a lot of time staring at our chalkboard— it’s the blueprint of The Dalhousie Gazette sketched across…

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. Passionate.…

All Out: The photo that defined a moment, but not a movement

I’m writing today in response to an article the Dalhousie Gazette published on Nov. 2 entitled “All Out: the photo that defined a moment in the students’ protest.” The photo the title is referring to depicted a crowd of students at the National Day of Action protest, myself among the throng, who marched past a person…

Letter from the editor: Galhousie

At the end of September, Narcity Halifax published an article called 12 Of The Prettiest Dalhousie Girls You Should Follow on Instagram. The article praised these women for their beauty, but gave no mention of their personalities or accomplishments. These 12 “prettiest Dalhousie girls” appeared nearly identical, with the majority of them fitting perfectly into…

On divesting from Israel

As Dalhousie students, we are concerned that our student union is being solicited by an anti-Israel group on campus. The members of the Dalhousie Student Union last week voted on a motion to divest from a number of entities. Israel was specifically mentioned in a motion on the agenda. This fait accompli was orchestrated on the busiest week…
