The Stairs: A raw look at drug use

Harm reduction and opioid addiction were the focus of an award-winning documentary shown at Ryerson’s School of Image Arts last week.

The Stairs tells the life stories of Marty Thompson, Greg Bell and Roxanne Smith, who have all survived years of street involvement and drug use in Toronto’s Regent Park neighbourhood.

MONDAY MOVIE: “The Justice League”

It could have been worse.

After the cinematic war crime that was Batman v. Superman, one might have expected Justice League to be a miserable movie filled with violent dude-bros and unseemly plot holes. Surprisingly, it wasn’t.

MOVIE MONDAY: “Thor: Ragnarok”

The third time’s a charm. Following two inspired Thor movies, Thor: Ragnarok gets the god of thunder right. The film is a fast-paced, interplanetary romp that takes Thor out of his element.

Lost, hammerless and—at one glorious point—shirtless, the Avenger finds himself on a quest to save his homeworld, Asgard, from a seemingly unbeatable threat.

RTA students pay thousands to create their final projects

If you stop any student on the Ryerson campus and ask them how they’re doing financially, their response will probably range from “broke” to “really broke.”

It’s no secret that university students are short on cash. Tuition fees are hard enough to pay on time, but students in the Radio Television Arts (RTA) program face additional costs in order to finish their degrees.
