Sam Wall | Editor In Chief   This past Monday, the call was put out for speakers for TEDxUNBC. The event, occurring on September 30th, will take inspiration directly from TED and other similarly inspired events, called TEDx. The theme for UNBC’s conference will be dispelling misconceptions, giving speakers the opportunity to demonstrate what Prince George has to offer. The conference will be the first of its kind at UNBC. The goal of TEDxUNBC is to highlight the incredible talent and knowledge held within UNBC and the wider Prince George community. The theme of dispelling misconceptions is a fitting one, as residents are quite familiar with the common of misconceptions of their city.

BC Provincial Election #TheClimateTalk

Posted by on Apr 29, 2017 in Culture, News | 0 comments

Tierney Watkinson | News Director   As our next Provincial Election approaches, youth of BC are raising questions about the future of the environment, and asking voters to go to the polls with the fate of that future in mind. A video has been circulating Facebook featuring Canadian youth speaking to their families about the importance of voting with the issue of climate change as their main concern, as well as encouraging other voters to do the same. “Sit your family down or call them up. Have #TheClimateTalk.” The video was created by the Wilderness Committee. “The Wilderness Committee, founded in 1980, is a registered non-profit society with charitable status…Canada’s people-powered, citizen-funded wilderness protection group,” their website says. Over The Edge was contacted by Peter McCartney, Climate Campaigner for the society. “#TheClimateTalk came out of a number of conversations...

Let the extremely talented UNBC Drama Club transport you into this beloved world of pirates, fairies, and Lost Boys.

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member   Another year has come and gone for UNBC’s Musical Productions group. As I write this, we have four more shows to perform. Last week, we had a few glitches with the set during our first show but the musical has really come together. This week of shows will be our best yet. For this article, painfully aware that I am still neglecting to mention a number of members who also worked tirelessly to make these shows a reality, I wanted to give shout-outs to the Musical Production Club’s Technical Crew. To Carmen Campbell, who played piano for the AVPS show and who has been a member of the club since the very beginning. She has starred as a crazed fan in Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself in the club’s...
