Extreme Spring Cleaning: Dorm Edition

Posted by on Mar 15, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Jade Szymanski | Contributor Spring is fast approaching; as the days get longer and the temperature gets warmer, university students everywhere are filled with anticipation of the four-month long break from school that they will get to work, sleep, and soak up the sun instead of study, drink nothing but coffee, and freeze their butts off while getting to class. With spring comes the notion that we are renewed and brighter days are ahead of us. This is why spring cleaning is so popular- an organized and clean living environment helps translate to how we function in day-to-day life, which should feel exciting and fresh when spring finally rolls around. It is the beginning of a promising summer, and your dorm should reflect that positivity. After all, a cluttered space leaves a cluttered mind, and we all need to be...

So Long For Now: Remembering Stuart McLean

Posted by on Mar 15, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Colin Slark | Editor in Chief I pride myself on not being taken in by Canadiana. I get very tired of trite songs, CBC TV shows, trinkets, and books that distill the Canadian experience into a concentrated blend of hockey, maple leaves, and beavers; like we lack any sort of further complexity other than the stereotypes we complain that other countries foist upon us. As an example, the works of Stompin’ Tom Connors are anathema to me. Yes, The Hockey Song is fun to sing along with, but it merely describes the events of a hockey game, it makes no attempt to explain why we love hockey or what its significance to our country is. Perhaps then, it is confusing why I enjoyed the stories of Stuart McLean. Stuart McLean, the recently deceased host of the long-running CBC Radio program...

Humanity, A Lost Quality

Posted by on Mar 15, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Emmanuel Drame | Contributor I am an inherent word for creatures I thought knew and valued me…. I have lost my place; my name resonates only with chaos and conflict…. I lost my place because humans placed irrelevant issues above me.… I unite differences across every spectrum of life; they are products of mine…Race, Religion, Philosophy, Ideology, Culture, Ethnicity, Nationality, Geography and so on….   When people speak of me today, I bow in shame because I have become a cry for help…the last instead of the first resort to action…. People try to appease their sense of ‘humanity’ through philanthropy… I have become a bargaining chip for self-aggrandizement…. No one can feel human without me…I admit I thought wrong there for a second…some people feel more human than others….I guess that was where I lost my place… I am...

Senate Bios

Aaron Larsen My name is Aaron Larsen and I am currently wrapping up my fifth and final year in the Bachelor of Arts degree in History, with a double minor in Anthropology and Human Geography before starting in the Bachelor of Education program here at UNBC in the Fall. I have been elected the Media Coordinator of the Northern Historical Student Society for the past three years. During my time with the NHSS, the club grew into a highly successful student society, holding advanced standing. I ran a number of popular events, and helped found the Northern Historical Conference, currently the largest student run history conference in Western Canada. My goal for Senate is to provide a new and open voice for students, with a focus on transparency. It will be my goal to reach out to our entire...

Letter from the Edgeitor

Posted by on Mar 14, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Colin Slark | Editor in Chief Relentless positivity is an appealing concept that rarely goes well. Last week, the popular Hell Yeah Prince George Facebook group suffered a nearly fatal blow after its creator Scott McWalter had been kicking off other administrators and moderators who had been disagreeing with his management of the group, culminating in a firestorm when McWalter used the group to promote a pending lawsuit by his employer. I take no issue with the aims of the group, and I admire many of its accomplishments; promoting charities, assisting the less fortunate members of our community, and bringing attention to the efforts of individuals that work hard to help their fellow citizens. I believe that Prince George has an unfair reputation as a dangerous, dirty city, and I can appreciate that people want to convince others that...
