Today is World Mental Health Day.

According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, one in five people are living with mental health issues or illness. Students spend a significant amount of time in the classroom, a space that can either address these issues or significantly contribute to them.

OPINION: What Thanksgiving means to me as someone who doesn’t celebrate it

OPINION: What Thanksgiving means to me as someone who doesn’t celebrate it

The first time I ever heard of Thanksgiving was when I sneakily streamed an episode of Friends in middle school, without my mother’s permission. She refused to let me watch the series until I was appropriately old enough to hear the double-entendres.

EDITORIAL: Giving thanks, but for what?

We’ve finally arrived at that time of year where we have the opportunity to give thanks for all that we’re fortunate for – and to gather with family and friends around an excess amount of turkey and mashed potatoes.

Those who don’t wait for the arrival of Thanksgiving to express their gratitude are likely just as thankful for a day off.

OPINION: It’s time to invest ethically

There’s a saying that goes, he who is not a liberal at 20 has no heart, but he who is not a conservative by 40 has no brain. Is this true? Does entering adulthood, earning an income and raising children force us out of our values and dirty ourselves with the evils of global capitalism?

OPINION: Why fetishizing guns is moronic

OPINION: Why fetishizing guns is moronic

As a former soldier in the Canadian army, I find this fetishization of guns disgusting. I served in the Toronto Scottish Regiment for seven years. If there is one lesson I have learnt from my time in the forces, it’s that a gun is something you prove yourself worthy to be trusted with. A gun is not a toy. Its sole purpose in life is to end yours. You do not have a right to own a gun.
