Freedom

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member I watch as the sun sinks into hills beyond and the sky slowly changes from blue to a kaleidoscope of scarlets and violets and yellows and then starts to fade and deepens to ebony—the rich and deep black of night. Then stars appear, sparkling softly, ever singing their hushed song and the moon slowly rises up to join them casting eerie yet beautiful light over the silent shapes of trees and hills, and sleeping animals and houses. I watch, and envy the stars and the moon, because they are free, and I can never truly be...

Review: Rogue One Leaves An Impact

Posted by on Feb 13, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Jesmeen Deo  | Contributor I ’m going to start this off by saying I am a casual Star Wars fan. I saw the original movies and the prequel trilogy several years ago and enjoyed them. I’ve seen The Force Awakens and enjoyed that too. So last month, when I had the opportunity to go see Rogue One, I decided to take it. I assumed that like the other Star Wars movies I’d seen before it, this would just be an enjoyable, casual viewing, and I’d walk away without much lingering thought about the film afterwards. Boy, was I wrong. There are two things that really stuck out to me about this movie. One is nonplot related and the other is plot related. I’d advise anyone who hasn’t seen Rogue One and is interested to see it not to keep...

Living with Monsters in my Head

Posted by on Feb 13, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Anonymous Contributor At the start of this semester, I began to feel really run down. My body felt heavy. My head was not in the game. I was tired all the time, but at the same time, I couldn’t sleep. I began missing assignments, I wasn’t writing notes in class, I was distracted most of the time. I began to actively avoid my responsibilities. I knew that all I was doing at that point was hurting me and my academic career. I had monsters whispering in my ear. “You’re not doing great. You’re going to fail. You’re pathetic. You’re never going to get anywhere.” When I first experienced those whispers late last semester, I remember distinctly thinking to myself, “Don’t worry about it. It’s probably just the winter blues, you’ll get over it pretty soon.” I never really did...

Letter from the Edgeitor

Colin Slark | Editor in Chief The Quebec City mosque shooting was horrifying and tragic, but it shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise. As much as Canadians would like to think that they’re above the hateful rhetoric and xenophobic prejudices of their southern neighbours, this country has had its fair share of individuals who – whether they truly believe what they say or not – have built up Islam as a dangerous boogeyman and attempted to profit off of the fear they’ve created. In the aftermath of the shooting, everyone was looking for answers. News spread that one of the arrested suspects was a Moroccan man, and the Muslim fear machine got to work. Narratives alleging that Muslims are so savage they kill their own and that this was proof of why a Muslim travel ban is necessary...
