Montreal: La belle ville de movie dorks

“We were shown, as in some strange phantasmagoria, scenes from different places in France. First there was the arrival of a train at the Lyon-Perrache station […] you could clearly see each individual. It was most lifelike: you really were at the station.

A foot on either side

In March 2017, Andrew Potter, former director of the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC), resigned after publishing a column titled “How a snowstorm exposed Quebec’s real problem: social malaise” in Maclean’s magazine.

McGill’s Counselling and Mental Health Services have come under fire in recent years, as changes meant to improve care have instead focused on reducing wait times and seeing as many patients as possible.

Metro musicians

Walking through the metro is not something we spend much time thinking about. Public transportation, as its name implies, is inherently transitory. The sole point of any transit system is to carry people as efficiently as possible from point A to B. Such a system is successful when its design allows us to spend less… Keep Reading

Softboys

If you ask someone what a “softboy” is, they either know exactly what you mean, or they have no idea.   When I asked Dylan Adamson,  U2 Cultural Studies, to define the term, he rattled off a list of weirdly specific, seemingly unrelated qualities.   “He talks about feminism a lot,” Adamson said. “He’ll recommend… Keep Reading
